My Favorite Day

Hi friends! It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  This week Trevor and I have a super easy go to sketch for you.  We hope you'll play along.

My card came together in less than 10 minutes using the brand new limited time Love from Me digital freebie and the current thank you gift (paper, doily and ribbon) with an order from Verve.  I printed the pdf, cut the sentiment with a pierced square die, then cut the pink paper to 2" x 3.75" and the black paper to 4 x 5.25".  The doily is glued down to the black layer and trimmed off, then I tied a black seam binding bow around the pink layer and glued everything down on a white card base.  Easy peasy!

I just love this sentiment and think it would be perfect for so many occasions. It pairs with a few love themed sentiments and a lovey dovey coffee cup to round out the Love From Me set. The set is available as a FREE download through February 14.  If you make something wonderful with the set, head over to the Verve blog and link it up for a chance to win a $40 gift voucher to the Verve store. I'm also sharing another card I made with this set and Mojo sketch over there if you want to come and take a peek.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more inspiration with this sketch, head on over to the Mojo Monday blog to see what the other designers are sharing today.

Perfectly Wonderful Card Concept

Hi friends! It's the start of a new challenge over at The Card Concept today.  I couldn't wait to play with the colors as soon as I saw the inspiration pic.  I intended to have a mostly white card with a splash of orange, but by the time I finished my orange piece, I couldn't bear to cut it down, so it became the backdrop for the entire card.

I loved the black and white photos in the inspiration with the super wide white mats, so tried to reproduce that for my sentiment panel.  I modpodged a piece of black and white tissue paper to a white panel, then stamped the sentiment from Words of Wisdom  on vellum and laid over the top.  It has a nice little effect in real life, but of course for the photo shoot that vellum decided to fly up, so you can't see the tissue paper behind very much.

The background started as white cardstock, covered in heavy gesso.  Then I sprinkled on some orange Magical powders and spritzed until I was happy (well actually, a little giddy) with the results.  I finished off with some wide pink ribbon that reminded me of the blanket in the photo, a fun prima flower and a teeny library clip.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! For a little more inspiration, head on over to The Card Concept blog to see what amazingness the other designers have created with the inspiration.  We'd love to have you play along!

More than Chocolate

Hi friends! It's Monday again already and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  My son, Trevor, helped me with the sketches this month.  He sat on my lap and told me what shapes to draw and where to draw them.  I think we might have a little sketch master in the making! {grin} When we finished the month's sketches he told me he would help me with February's on another day, he needed a break!

As my boys say, it's been winter for days and days and days around here. With all the snow and rain and freezing temperatures, I felt like I needed a little perking up.  So I chose these fun, vibrant papers from the Fancy Free collection by Pink Paislee.  Each layer is matted in basic gray cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment and the candy hearts from the Chocolate set in grey ink, then colored the candies with copics and die cut the circles.  The Chocolate Word Die  is cut from basic gray cardstock and I finished with a bit of taffeta ribbon and a bow.

It wasn't planned, but I kind of love how the word bubble that catches my eye on the designer paper is the one that says "whatever".  Which is what I can totally imagine Mark saying when he reads this sentiment!  LOL
