Mojo Monday – Week 188

  • Stamps – Hero Arts Cleardesign “Cupcakes” set (both cupcake and sentiment)
  • Patterned cardstock – ki memories “Flourish” collection
  • Solid cardstock – Bazzill
  • Die cut – Spellbinder’s Nestabilities “standard circles large”
  • Border punch – EK Success “Swiss Cheese”
  • Colored pearls – Kaisercraft
  • Ribbon – May Arts
  • The cupcake image is colored with Sakura Gelly Roll pens with some the flower accented with a Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen.

This was a new challenge for me: Mojo Monday. This particular sketch is Mojo Monday Week 188. I chose to do a square card as opposed to a round card. I didn’t have the energy to try to cut a circle large enough for the card with my circle cutter! Thanks for visiting.

OWH Sketch #66

  • Stamp – Magenta Limited Edition Cat of the Month Series “Blondie”
  • Patterned papers – Memory Box “Echo” collection
  • Flowers – Prima
  • Button (flower center) – Basic Grey stitched brads
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

This card is designed using the Operation Write Home Sketch #66. Because my flower was a little lumpy, my scan isn’t the best. This is a simple sketch that works well with a fairly large image. This kitty looks very much like the “outside” cat we feed. Thanks for checking-in.

I based this card on the latest Clean and Simple sketch (#137). I used my new Memory Box leaf stamp for the first time on this–twice! Thanks for visiting.
