Mojo Monday #81

This is my creation using the template on this weeks MojoMonday.

you can see "Mad Men" playing in the background, i used my laptop as a backdrop for this photo

I used scraps from my scrap bin, Navy Cardstock from Michaels, SU Chocolate Chip cardstock to mat the stamps. The Stamp sets were SU "Botanical Blossoms" and "Priceless" and "Simply Said". The brads are jumbo silver brads from the dollar store.

The flower and butterfly were both stamped with versamark and then chalked with the SU pastel chalks. The phrase was stamped with SU Chocolate Chip ink. All three pieces of cream cardstock were smudged on the edges with burgundy chalk.

2 cards - Puns/Simply Said

This card was made with Red Card stock from a fall package, bought at Michael's. The stamp is from SU "Puns from the Past" set, i crumpled the cream and green cardstock pieces before gluing them on to give them a distressed look. The 3 buttons are from a bag of buttons i bought at WalMart, and all the stitching is drawn on with black marker.

This card is made on green cardstock from a Halloween package i bought at Michael's. The Striped paper is from my scrap bin, the rest of the cardstock are scraps as well. This card uses SU "Simply Said" Stamp set, the SU Scallop edge punch, and 2 large pastel brads i bought at the dollar store.

Purple and Grey

Using SU Scallop Edge punch, and SU "Love Matters" retired stamp set.

This card uses 3 different SU sets, Retired "Love Matters" for the Love stamp on the top and the inside phrase: is such a big word it really aught to have more letters, sale-a-bration "Botanical Blossoms" for the stem and "Simply Said" hearts for the flower.

This card used SU "Priceless" stamp set.

I used Grey Cardstock and some purple scraps from my scrap bin, and i really love the colour combination.

A Little Somethin'

Both these cards were made using paper scraps from my scrap bin, Stampin' Up "A Little Somethin'" Stamp set, Stampin' Up scallop Edge punch and SU Real Red ink.

I just learned how to make these scallop frames, so i was testing them out. Make a square 7cm x 7cm and punch out ONE scallop edge on each side.

Botanical Blossoms

This card was made using Stampin' Up "Botanical Blossoms" Sale-a-bration set, Stampin' Up ink and Scallop edge punch. All the paper is from my scrap bin.
