Birthday Bliss – MOJO Sketch #

August 19th, 2010 , No Comments »

Good Morning All My Crafty Friends – So nice to have you back here this morning.  Kourtney had a great first day at her new school and poor Kayleigh is stlll having her summer extended for a little while.  We are waiting on her IEP to be transferred.  Today I have a very cheery card and a MOJO Monday sketch as well for you.  You know I'm just lovin this Poppy Red.  What better combo can you have than red and yellow.  Let's begin.  My cardbase is So Saffron #105118.  You'll find it in the Subtles Collection on pg 167.  My next layer is my Poppy Red #119793.  It sure is gorgeous, topped with a piece of yellow from the Designer Paper Pack Sunny Garden #119831. Stampin' Up Extra Hostess Rewards Birthday Bliss Summer Mini For some pizzazz I used the Eyelet Border Punch #119853.  I thought it needed a little love because the Scallop Trim Border has kind of taken over my papercrafts.  LOL  Second Layer is a piece of the Poppy Red cardstock #119793.  Now the fun begins.  I got out my nesties and used two of the oval shapes, one in Whisper White #100730 and the striped piece is from Sunny Garden #119831.  If you don't have a nestie you can certainly use your Co-luzzle Oval in their place.  It will work just fine.  My stamp step is Birthday Bliss #115442.  It is a small set but it packs a powerful punch with only 4 stamps in it.  TIP:  Sometimes we overlook the smaller sets because we think more is better, but be sure and take a second look on the smaller stamp sets.  They can pack a powerful punch when you have a great design.  For my birthday cake I colored it with markers (poppy red and so saffron and a blender pin #102845).  This is a great way to color your images.  If you have not done this technique before please give me a call and I will talk you thru it.  Easy Peasy.  My number is 636 441 2742  I also used a nestie there as well.  I just love the embossed image you get around your circle.  It makes it look like you've done more work that you acutally have.  Who would have guessed it.  LOL  My only embellishement is my Poppy Red Ribbon #119263.  You can find it on page 190 of your catty.  It is 1/2" wide, looks a lttle like twill tape and ties like a dream.  I'm sure you will like it.   And thanks to the MOJO Sketch Team it was a great layout to work with.
