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.

Loving Thoughts Sympathy Card

This Loving Thoughts Sympathy Card is a quick and easy handmade card.  It is simply made with card stock and ink.

The card base is made from Stampin’ Up!’s new Pistachio Pudding Card Stock (131294).  The first layer is made with dry embossing on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock.  The embossing folder is an Anna Griffin Cuttlebug folder named, Wildflower Gate.  I used a brayer to roll Pistachio Pudding Classic Ink onto the negative side of the embossing folder, placed the piece of Whisper White Card Stock inside the folder, and ran it through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.

The embossing folder has a matching embossing banner.  It was used on the small piece of Pistachio Pudding Card Stock upon which the sentiment rests.  The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Loving Thoughts stamp set.

Enjoy your day!
