Mojo Monday with Sneak Peek

Don't forget you can subscribe to my updates on right side of this page.

This card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday. It's so fun to start with great inspiration like this sketch. I used every stamp in the new level 2 hostess set, Asian Artistry, except the dragonfly. This images are so lovely and so fun to work with.

(All supplies from Stampin' Up!) I started with whisper white cs, stamped the grassy image in creamy carmel, then inked the bird on the branch in Old Olive, Ruby Red and Close to Carmel markers and stamped over the previous image. I used the aqua painter to pull the color from the outline of the bird to color it in a little. I punched a 1" hole out of a scrap piece of paper and sponged the sun in the upper left corner with summer sun. I used the spritzer tool to spritz the image with chocolate chip, then sponged the edges first with Ruby Red, then Chocolate Chip.

This was layered on Chocolate Chip cs with the bottom edge scallop punched. The Ruby Red layer was stamped with the floral image in Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip. The base of the card is Chocolate Chip with a layer of So Saffron pattern paper. The ribbon is from Ribbon Originals Dress Up. The brads were layered on 1/4" Ruby Red circles.

I selected a phrase from the sentiment that comes with this set and inked it with Chocolate Chip. The background was stamped with Ruby Red, 3rd generation. Hint: 3rd generation means that I inked the stamp and stamped it twice on scrap paper before stamping on my project. Then it was sponged with Chocolate Chip.

The edges of the Designer Label in Ruby Red cs and the Wide Oval in Chocolate Chip cs were sponged with Chocolate Chip. Finally vintage brads were added to the top and bottom of the layered tag and the tag was attached to the card with dimensionals. Here is a close up of the tag.

Hope you like it.

Hi Julie, Awesome card. I just got this stamp set in the mail. So excited about the new catty. Love the colors you used and the layout. The layering of the grasses was a great idea.
