You're out of this World!

How about some Mojo Monday on a Saturday!!!

I'm avoiding doing laundry and a project for school but does it really matter
the outcome is a couple of great cards!!! 

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch

With the Ippity Color Challenge for the week!! 

and this is what I came up with!! 

After I made this card I realized I made a big boo boo
I didn't use Ippity stamps, just Unity
but that's okay 
because it gave me an excuse to make another one!! 

To make this very simple card...
Paper - SU, American Crafts
Ink - color box lipstick red
Markers/Pens - Copic glitter pens & White gel pen
other: Tim Holtz stapler, pop up dimensionals

This card is really easy, a couple of cuts, a quick paper piercing, some stamping, gel pen work and you can put it all together!!

Remember that other one I was talking about... well here it is! 
AND I am Really HAPPY with this card!! 
Again, super easy!! 
I did use my ippity stamps this time
on the aqua I stamped and heat embossed this great background. 
the set is from Because of you
the happy anniversary is from
Just wanted to say hi
I picked up that butterfly at Michaels today and it works GREAT!! 
Again I used my gel pen, I just love that look especially on black paper

So here it is, 
paper - su and american crafts
ink - color box chalk lipstick red
embelishments - recollections line at michaels
embossing powder - Zing 
So there it is!!! 
I hope you are having a great weekend!!

How about some Mojo Monday on a Sunday!

Here is my second post for today!! Yep Second!!! I think this is a first!!

Anyway I have my card for the Mojo Monday challenge!!
I decided to go with the round so I could use my Grand Spellbinder dies.  

I am so loving this card! I wasn't so sure about this sketch but am so happy with it now that I have completed it. 
So here is what I did

I used my Spellbinders grand die 

Love these!!! 

I also used a retired scrap-booking kit from SU - Crew Kids - Girl 
The flowers and brads are all SU
Ink is black for the socks and Chalk Box Maroon for the sentiment
The socks are colored in with various greens, grays and a pink copic marker
I popped up the socks with some dimensional pop dots from hobby lobby

There you have it. 

Life is too short to match socks! 

Hope you are enjoying/have enjoyed the game today. I am a Bears fan so it's hard to watch the game knowing we were to close. Maybe next year :) 

Have a great night! 
Make sure to come back tomorrow as I am participating in the Ippity Hip Hop!! 

till next time 

Play Date Cafe Challenge... and a challenge it was!

So I have made a couple of cards for the Play Date Cafe Challenges but never managed to post them. So typical of me.  I am not making that mistake this time because this color combo put me into a tail spin.  I ended up creating 2 things, a gift bag and a card (a few days later).

So here is what stumped me! Great colors right? Now try putting them together. That blue looks beautiful in this photo but just threw me when trying to add it to my project.  So with out further ado...

Here is a close up of the bag. I started with a mini card. Yes that is actually a mini card on the bag. The problem I was having was using so many buttons on something that someone would simply just throw out... I just couldn't do it so I decided to make it a gift bag because people tend to reuse gift bags right??? I do anyway :)
Here is the entire bag. 
I used
Stamps - Unity sets
Paper - polka dot velum (SU), other paper from misc. stores
Ribbon - White american crafts that I colored using tattered angels mist
Buttons - PTI
Ink - Chalk ink
Bag from Hobby Lobby

Now for the piece I like...
After a couple of days and a trip to the local craft store I decided to try again.  I get this great stamp that I just had to try out. Again the colors threw me for a loop. I had this great heart and the white card and just didn't know what to do next.  I happened to have my Unity stamp set out and realized that this Lots of Love stamp was perfect so I stamped it in the bottom right corner... then I thought it would look even better as a background, so I went to town.  Then I thought I really needed some more blue and I happened to pick up some copic glitter pens while I was at the craft store so I colored in all the hearts!!! 
This one I like!!! 

Here is what I used -
Stamps - Unity
Paper - All different companies (PTI, SU and some others)
Ink - Chalk ink
Markers - Copic glitter pen
Embossing powder- clear american crafts

So there you have it!! I hope you like!
