Stampin Up Venetian Romance DSP – MOJO310

Stampin Up Venetian Romance DSPMy special friend, Melody, from N.VA has left to return home, and I feel sad.  However, I am very pleased that we had a fantastic visit, and I hope to see her again soon.  Because I feel sad about her leaving, I chose to create a card that would provide comfort to anyone who has such feelings when a loved one visits and leaves.  Therefore, I am featuring the Stampin Up Venetian Romance DSP and Verve Stamps on my card share today.  The Verve Stamps “Let It Be” Stamp Set has the perfect sentiment stamp for the card:  “Every Little Thing is Going to be All Right“.  This picture provides a close up of the sentiment. Venetian Romance DSP

I think that the design I used from the Stampin Up Venetian Romance DSP is one of the prettiest designs from the DSP.  Its colors are Island Indigo and Pistachio Pudding.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Pistachio Pudding Card Stock for the card base and the Island Indigo Card Stock for a couple of highlighting elements.

I used this past Monday’s MOJO Monday MOJO310 sketch for the design of my card.  The MOJO310 sketch follows.

Afternoon Picnic DSP – MOJO309

I am SO excited (doing the happy dance)!  My best friend from Northern Virginia arrives in a few hours for a visit.  I have not seen her for about three years, so I am so excited and looking forward to her visit here in Florida.  I made this card for her from the Stampin’ Up! Afternoon Picnic DSP to tell her “welcome, best friend”. Afternoon Picnic DSP - MOJO309

Would you agree with me that the color combination of Coastal Cabana and Wisteria Wonder is beautiful?  I think they are striking together.  These are the colors in all of the Afternoon Picnic DSP design patterns that I selected for this card.

The card’s “best friend” sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set.  The sentiment was stamped onto a Coastal Cabana Card Stock Spellbinders Splendid Circle.  It rests upon a 1-3/4″ Crushed Curry Card Stock circle.  The flower resting on the sentiment is quite easy to make.  I simply cut a 1-3/4″ circle from Wisteria Wonder Card Stock and “fussy cut” it in a circular fashion.  I then rolled it around a wooden skewer and glued it together.  Then I used the Stampin’ Up! Boho Blossoms Punch to punch out a Crushed Curry Card Stock flower that I glued into the center.  Although you cannot see it too well, there is a tiny Basic Pearl in the center of the flower.

I used the MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge MOJO309 design as my guide to create the card.  This is the MOJO309 design.

Flower Shop Stamp Set – MOJO Monday MOJO308

Today’s 5″ x 5″ card was created for a special sister whom I think of often and love very much.  The card features the Stampin’ Up! Flower Shop Stamp Set.  The design of the card was inspired by MOJO Monday Sketch Challenges, namely number 308 or MOJO308.   Also featured on this card is the beautiful Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper.

The round and square sketches below are for this week’s MOJO Monday.  Isn’t it nice to have a sketch to follow when creating a card?  I started participating last week in the MOJO Monday challenges, and I’m finding I enjoy it. 

I love the color combination of pink and yellow, which are the colors for one of the designs of the Stampin’ Up! Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper.  I also love bold colors, as you may have noticed, which are spotlighted on the Flower Shop Stamp Set greeting card.

Notice in the square design at the bottom right there is a spot for three elements.  I chose three Stampin’ Up! Basic Pearls and colored them with permanent markers.  Also the sketch requires a flower at the top left.  I used the Flower Shop Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Punch to create the required flower.  The flower actually is two-dimensional.  I like the leaves that I made; what do you think?  I tried to replicate pansy flower leaves.

I really like the embossing folder I used on the Daffodil Delight Card Stock.  It is an Anna Griffin embossing folder called Wildflower Gate.  The embossing shows better in the first picture above and the last picture at the bottom.
