I'm the first stop on the hop, so if you're just popping in, pull up a bean bag and stay awhile. :)
It's also the last Monday of the month, which means it's tall & skinny week at Mojo Monday. This week's sketch was just perfect for the new build-a-cupcake set that Chaitali illustrated and the girls are peeking today. I love tall cards and ovals are really lovely... I should use them more often!
For my card, I started with the cupcakes, stamping the tops in strawberry slush and the bottoms in pool party. Next I added the life is short sentiment in black, then cut one of the cupcakes out by hand to pop up over my design. I added a vellum scalloped circle mat to my oval, dressing it up with some liquid pearls on each scallop. The chalkboard layer is DP that I stamped randomly with the three different cupcake fonts in the set in white mix'd media ink and then smudged with my fingers. I added the small cupcakes word on a vellum word window punch, over a seam ribbon bow from the Signature collection. My back layers are strawberry slush and pool party that I taped together and then embossed with a polka dot folder and sponged a little of that jasmine ink. I finished off with some scattered sequins from the new Signature Sequin Collection.
That's it for me today! Next up on the hop is... Teresa
