Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Monthly Archives: August 2013

I was feeling my mojo with this week’s Mojo Monday sketch! I used Avocado Arts stamps with some My Mind’s Eye papers, ribbon and paper tape. The chair one was colored with distess markers on the stamp which added to the aged feel of the card. I really like the other suit stamp and sentiment also! These cards were made for a Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers.



Avocado Arts

Stampin’ Up! had a great set from Sale-a-bration called Patterned Occasions. I find myself reaching for this set more lately as the sentiment & image are together in one image. Ink and stamp. How simple is that?

I used the Clean & Simple Stamping sketch FTL#252, the CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC111 to use buttons and the 2nd challenge at Opposites Attract Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was a cool one – use the same stamp set to make a masculine and feminine card by just changing the colors and embellishments. I knew the elephant would work great!

I have a BUNCH of Stampin’ Up! stamps and need to use them more. Here’ s a Hostess set called Simply Soft from last year that I used for the first time plus a sentiment from the So Happy For You set. The 2-step stampin’ is nice and I love how it doesn’t have to be perfect to look great!

This card met the Mini Virtual Stamp Night’s first challenge at Splitcoaststampers Opposites Attract VSN – neutrals with a pop of color. The sketch is from this week’s CASE This Sketch #39. The banner die is from Simon Says Stamp!
