Je t'adore Mojo

Happy Monday!  It's the beginning of a new week, and it's time for a Round or Square Mojo Sketch {Mojo176}.  This week's sketch was submitted by Mary Fish and I loved the different possibilities for embellishing that sweet little curve.  Check out the Mojo Monday blog for this week's sketch and some super fun samples from the design team.  I hope you'll play along!

For my card, I wanted to play with a few new goodies.  I knew I was going to be all mopey about seeing all the new stuff from the CHA sneak peeks, so I planned ahead and put a few little orders in so I'd have brand new stuff to play with over the weekend!   So I knew I wanted to use the new Sweet Buttons Embosslit from the SU! mini, some of this Je t'adore paper by Making Memories and a sweet little Sentiments Flag die from Lil' Inker Designs.  I love the size of it and that the tails are even every time!  Yay!

I started by tracing a curve using a button jar I had on my desk on the back side of the patterned paper.  I then placed my circle die over it so the curve was positioned where I wanted it and cut the circle, then trimmed along the traced line and glued to a full circle of the pink dotted paper.  Before I glued the circle onto my scallop base, I used the Lots of Hearts punch to punch the heart trio.  Then I forgot about the punch outs by the time I went to glue down my circle, and ran tape across the under layer.  Not to worry, I decided to fix my little blunder by making them stripey hearts with a little silver glass glitter and some pink liquid pearls!

The buttons are done with the Sweet buttons embosslit and I stitched a little scrappers floss through each of the button holes.  Next up I made a fan by cutting a 1.5" x 6" strip of patterned paper, scoring at 1/4" intervals down the length of it, then accordion folding and fanning out.  I embellished the edges with some red rhinestone strips and added a prima flower that was sitting on my desk.  Up in the corner I pulled out a mini library clip to tack on a little Je t'adore coordinating ticket and then finished with a little sentiment flag, using the Lil' Inkers die and a stamped sentiment from Love Notes.

There you have it!  My curve had a bit more character before I covered it all up, but I think it still works!  :)  I used Grand Nestabilities in my Grand Calibur machine, so the finished size of this card  is a larger 5.25" in diameter.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a fabulous start to your week, and I'll be back tomorrow with a very special post!

  10. I love that you call it the "Enabler's List" :) Been shopping all afternoon for stuff you used!!... Just curious, though... when you made your Grand Nestability circle, did you use the Grand Calibur or does it fit in the Big Shot? (or if you used neither :))
