mojo monday/mojo450-god is good

 
For this weeks mojo monday sketch, I have created a traditional A2 card. I have also played along with the inspired by challenge. The stickles is sooo globby looking in photo, it does not look like that IRL...could not get a decent photo for nothing. Be sure to check out the mojo makers blogs.

adventure awaits


I need a graduation card and I adore the card Elizabeth created here and I knew I wanted to case it! The world stamp is from concord & 9th as is the congratulations sentiment. I wanted to use the school colors which are green and gold, so I added gold stars using lil inker stitched star dies. I adore the colors that Elizabeth used, but wanted to stick with the school colors. Some ink sponging and some eneamel dots finish my card.

I have used the adorable sentiment set from right at home called, simple sentiments. Some polka dotted embossing paste behind the main foal point, watercolored piece of paper, and the layered corrugated circle, star, and twine make up my card.

simon says stamp/mask it-hello


Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Store!


Hello and welcome to the simon says stamp wednesday challenge. We are challenging you to masking, a fun technique that makes your images look so life like! Check out this link and the video for an example of masking. The design team is using products from altenew. Don't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!


I wanted the flower from altenew to look as if it was on the stem, so I masked the leaves to the flower and popped it up with pops dots. I watercolored the background for a water look. I added the twine and sentiment with a few clear gems. There are lots of ways to mask, if you would like to learn more, you can always sign up for the mask-erade class here. If only there were more hours in a day and I did not have a day job....teeehehehe. Be sure to check out the other team members blogs to see how they used masking.

Don't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!



I have used the stamp set from technique tuesday called dandelion, super fun set. I have added some stickles to the fly away seeds and then shimmery eneamel dots from doodlebug. I also created a couple of clear glue dots using glossy accents. The green cardstock is bazzil, minted bling heavy weight cardstock. I added the birthday sentiment that was cut out using mft mini tabs dies.
