Hello Fellow Stampers !
Wow! Happy Sunday. This past week ended with things so out -of-wack, and I didn't even get the Mojo Monday [MOJO 484] challenge design done until today and ready to post! Crazy! So we're have a highy unusual Sunday post today, and I hope you all won't mind as I'm working on catching up here!!
I actually have known for a couple of days what I wanted to do with this week's Mojo sketch; I just haven't been able to carve out the time to get into the Studio and just design. Work has been very stressful lately; on top of which I seem to have been fighting off the crud. Right now it's got my sinus and ears just really unhappy and today I'm feeling lightheaded and woozy! Really has to do with the ears being plugged and so I'm struggling to get everything to loosen up and drain and feel better. Grrrrrrrrr . . . I also was running around yesterday on errands, and "building" another drawer unit to slip into my IKEA Kallax shelving as I continue to tweak my Studio and my re-organization process. And it is a process I can guarantee you. So here we are . . . time to play with the Mojo sketch :-)
Today's color scheme was inspired by another challenge I saw somewhere else, and for the life of me, I can't remember where -- LOL. But then I realized that these colors are also represented in the SAB (Sale-A-Bration) designer series paper, Carried Away. So it all worked out really perfectly!
Doggone Delightful Stampin' Design Tips:
- Layerothology. This card is cut from Thick Whisper White cardstock, 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2". The background layering is a lovely piece of designer paper from the Carried Away DSP, matted with Night of Navy. The smaller matted background is also from the Carried Away DSP, matted with Night of Navy (measurements 3-1/4" x 4" before matting). Those layers are wrapped with Smoky Slate 1/8" stitched ribbon before adhering to the front of the card base.
- Layered Squares. The squares in today's sketch were first cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits, then embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF (to echo the background), and then layered with the Layering Squares Framelits in Smoky Slate. By carefully adjusting the layout I allowed space for my triple Smoky Slate bow :-) All the squares are popped with dimensionals.
- A Quartet of Dragonflies. I have to say that I really adore this Dragonfly Dreams bundle - especially the dies. These dragonflies are cut from Night of Navy cardstock; the original die cuts a series of 5 dragonflies, but I snipped away the top one, because I just thought it was one too many, what can I say!! LOL. These cute little guys have been popped with some teeny tiny dimensionals from one of my Paper Pumpkin kits (one of the PP perks -- all the great product we get in our kits). With a few pearls, they're all ready to fly away!!
Pretty cute, huh?!
- Turn to the Inside. The inside of this card is matted with Night of Navy; and the sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments stamp set! Inked in Night of Navy, punched with the Decorative Label Punch, and backed with a sweet Mint Macaron In Color Doily! A quick and simple way to perk up the inside of your card :-)
Well, there we go!! Now we can move on and start this next week!! LOL I hope everyone has had a good weekend and that you're rested and ready for the start of Monday. Don't forget that you can "earn" the Carried Away Designer Series Paper with a regular $50 product order. Don't miss out on these wonderful Sale-A-Bration products!
Until Next Time . . .
