I did get to join in the fun over at Mojo Monday with their sketch challenge (see below for earlier post and link) that I shared the other day. I made this card with my sister in mind. She lives in hot, hot, hot Texas so she isn't close at all and a card will brighten her day. When she was visiting last summer, I introduced her to cardmaking and she loved it! She went home with a stash of cards but I am sure they are all gone by now. She wasn't able to visit this summer, sadly. When she was here last year this stamp set, A Little Bit of Magic, was in the 2010 Summer Mini but I really didn't have enough time to order it when she was here. After she left I knew I had to get it so next time she comes she can use it... she really fell in love with it. I ordered it, school started, and the stamp set became very lonely. Every so often I thought about getting it out and making a card to send to her but school, coaching, and the girls activities didn't leave me much time to play. When I saw this Mojo Monday sketch challenge, I knew it was time to finally play with the stamp set. Here it is:
I used cardstock in Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry. I colored in my image use blender pens and ink pads. These are the colors I used: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Blush Blossom, Soft Suede, River Rock, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight. and Pretty in Pink. That is a lot of colors, but it really was fun to color it in and see it come to life!!
So... the scalloped edge?? I used my SU! Tasteful Trim Sizzix Die but I wanted the whole piece and not just an edge. Not to worry. I diecut the edge out and then adhered it next to my solid piece. I hid my seam with a piece of ribbon. I used the small oval (now retired) and the large oval to stamp and mat my sentiment. My hello is from Fundamental Phrases (which I think retired a few years ago maybe??)
What did you make for the Mojo Monday Challenge? Please leave a comment with your blog so I can look at what you came up with.
Until next time Happy Scrappin' and Happy Stampin'!
