Mojo Monday #131

This is my daughter, Sarah's entry for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week. I really wanted to make a card following the sketch, but unfortunately I didn't get the time.
Sarah stamped the script image from the Fresh Cuts stamp set and embossed it one white card. Then she applied Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy ink using the sponge daubers. And then cut up the image and stuck onto Not Quite Navy card. The rest of the card was quite straight forward. This is a very effective technique that I really like, email me at debairey@xtra.co.nz if you would like to learn this.
I really like her colour combo: Not Quite Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Basic Grey
Sooo, here is her card:Here is a close-up of the gorgeous embossed script image:

Our take on Just Add Ink

The Just Add Ink challenge this week is this fabulous sketch:


Sarah and I made this card together. It uses the Upsy Daisy stamp set. We just knew that this set would fit the sketch beautifully. We added some of the luxurious Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon for some visual texture.
For colouring the daisy's, we used the Not Quite Navy and Old Olive markers. I quite like this effect. And same with the sentiment, we added both colours for a multicoloured look.
The Upsy Daisy set and the Urban Garden designer papers match with each other beautifully.
Here is our card:Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Upsy Daisy
Card/Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Urban Garden DSP
Accessories: Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon, Clear Rinestone brads, Large Oval punch, Scallop Edge punch, Not Quite Nave & Old Olive markers

We had a lot of fun with this sketch, hope you like it! :)

Bella Rose

I held a workshop yesterday, we made this mini side step card using the Good Egg stamp set found HERE.
I demonstrated the Sweet Treat cups on this card. This card was strongly inspired by the talented Paula Dobson. Her project is found HERE.
I put red and green jelly beans in my Sweet Treat cup to match the gorgeous Bella Rose designer papers.
The ribbon at the top, is to pull the trap door up so that you don't have to rip the card open to get the jelly beans.
I made this mini treat box to match the card. The instructions on how to make this cute box is by Dawn Griffith, found HERE. This box is so quick and easy. Again, I added jelly beans to match the papers.

Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Butterfly punch, Riding Hood Red 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon, Sweet Treat cup, 1 3/4" Circle punch
