Mojo Monday Week #7

Can you believe it's already the middle of October? Time is just flying by! I didn't have a whole lot of time to stamp this weekend because I got a shiny new laptop. And it runs like a dream! Woohooo! I've been fighting with my old computer for so long I had forgotten how a "real" computer is supposed to run. I'm so totally excited about it! It's going to make my life SOOOOOO much easier not to deal with programs crashing all around me every 30 minutes or so! Yay!

I did carve out a little time in between installing all my programs to come up with a Mojo sketch for you all. So here's the sketch for Mojo Monday Week #7. What do you think? Is it doable? It really fit with the card I was trying to make. If you find time and are feeling creative, have a go at the sketch and link me up in the comments. If you decide to upload your card to SCS, please use keyword mojo7 (no space in between mojo and 7), so we can all easily view the entries throughout the week.

My inspiration for the card was really this fabulous paper from My Mind's Eye. It came in a paper pack called Out & About No. 1. I actually found 4 new gorgeous My Mind's Eye paper packs on my last visit to the LSS, so I went a little crazy. You can expect to see more MME in the coming weeks. I started by stamping the solid flower from Seasonal Circles in Cameo Coral on Very Vanilla. Next I stamped one of the flower centers from Fancy Florals in Ruby Red on each of the Seasonal Circles flowers. Then I stamped a different flower center from Fancy Florals randomly around the flowers in Old Olive to mimic the patterned paper. I then trimmed this panel, punched with the ticket corner punch and inked the edges with Close to Cocoa ink.

For the sentiment circle I stamped the solid flower and then dotted around the edges of each petal with a Ruby Red marker. I used a Chocolate Chip marker to ink up just the Joy part of a sentiment from Winter Wonder and stamped in the center of the flower. This is punched out with a 1" circle punch and layered on a Cameo Coral Extra Jumbo Scallop Circle Punch and a Chocolate Chip Super Jumbo Scallop Circle punch. The bling is from Me & My Big Ideas and I added some American Crafts ribbon and some Stardust Stickles as accents. I also did a bit of paper piercing around the layers of the cards. So therapeutic to poke all those holes! :)

Hope you all have a Happy Monday! Don't forget to scroll down to the next post and check out the entries for last week's mojo challenge.
