A Flirtatious MOJO Skectch

SUO Delicate Doilies Stampin Up Sale A Bration Occasions Mini

Good Morning To All. . .   Happy Friday.   Today I have this weeks MOJO Sketch to share.  I must admit this one was a little challenging.  I had the hardest time deciding on my colors.  As the end of the Stampin' Up year draws near I'm looking forward to some new designer papers.  How about you?

The colors that I finally ended up with are from the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Pack (122360).  It has some very nice colors like Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty In Pink Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White.  I thought that was a nice combo for Spring. 

My card base is a standard A2 card cut at 5.5 x 8.5, scored at 4.25.  If you look closely you will see a new die cut called Paper Doily (125592).  It is a beautiful intricate cut doily, but I must admit can be a little challenging.  Well worth the effort though.  Experiment with your big shot sandwich,  Adding another shim (I used a piece of Whisper White) to your sandwich can be helpful to get a clean cut, also be sure that you cutting plate is not warped.  This die needs the same pressure thru out your sandwich.  Just a few things that I have found helpful.  But please DO NOT force your sandwich thru your Big Shot.  You don't want to break this expensive cool tool.

My stamp set is from Herb Expressions (W113224).  On the inside I used Bring On the Cake (W121899/C121958) and Delicate Doilies (W122590/C122592).  Delicate Doillies coordinates with the Flirtatious Paper.    My buttons are random and the ribbon is the 1/2" Polka Dot Melon Mambo Ribbon.  I turned it on the other side and tied my bow.

Bring On The Cake Masculine Style

Stampin Up Masculine Card With Bring On The Cake  Stampin Up Sale A Bration Occasion Mini

I'M ON A ROLL FOLKS. . .   You all know how difficult it is to make masculine cards, but I think I have another one for ya.  Today I would like to share a birthday card with you that will put a smile on anyone's face.

My card is a standard A2 size, 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5.  My base color is Always Artichoke, matted with another piece of Artichoke embossed with our Houndstooth Embossing Folder (123134).  I have a strip that measures 1.25 x 5.5 matted with a piece of Pear Pizzazz from our In Color Patterns Designer Series Paper (117158).     (Remember folks, this is the second year for these In Colors so on May 31st they will no longer be available.  Make yourself a mental note because everything has been moved up a month with the new release of our new catalog on June 1st.)  

Next I used a piece of our 1 1/4" Striped Soft Suede Ribbon (125060).  I can not express enough how great this ribbon is.  It ties like butter.  My stamp set is Bring On the Cake (W121899/C121958).  This set works great with this layout, don't you think?  I'm not sure you can see it in the picture but I first stamped my cake image in Early Expresso, then I grabbed a makeup sponge (its on a stick, the one that you use to put on eye shadow) and wiped off the ink on happy birthday.  I reinked it with my Always Artichoke Marker (105113).  It worked like a charm. 

The sponge is small enough to fit in small places.  My large circle is 3" and my inner circle is 2 3/4.  I used my nesties, but it can be done many ways with the tools you have on hand.  I added a bronze brad to my sentiment to jazz it up a bit.

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Monday.  Have you heard the news yet.  Stampin' Up has introduced a new cool tool, it's called the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate (125586).  This plate sells for $11.95 and coordinates with our Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334) $29.95.  This diagnoal plate is great for customizing your own envelopes using designer papers and makes 3D projects like boxes easy peasy. 

As you already know I have been working on projects for my Tea Party that is coming up soon.  Well gee whiz I have been browsing the book for several minutes now and can't find my stamp set The Open Sea.  I guess it is retired.  I should have remembered that.  Any who that is the card I have to share with you today.  I need masculine birthdays and this set was sitting right on top of my stash.  My cardbase is new paper for me, it's Natural White (102316).  It has that manly look, don't you think.  LOL  I jazzed it up just a bit by embossing the world image with Gold Embossing Pwd (109131) and heat tool (100005).  Next I put a layer of Cherry Cobbler cut at 1 3/4", topped it with a piece of Night of Navy 1/8" smaller and embossed it with our Stripes Embossing Folder (123128).  My focal point image is a piece of Cherry Cobbler cut at 3 1/4 x 3 3/4.  The next two pieces are Brushed Gold (102935) and another piece of Naturals White cut 1/8" smaller.  For the happy birthday I used an ole' favorite Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370).  That's current and a  must have.  LOL  It covers just about any occasion that you would need

Tea For Two

FREE Trail My Digital Studio Stampin Up Sale A Bration and Occasions Mini

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Friday and welcome to SandiesKorner.  The last few days I have been working on my Swap Fronts for a Stamping Marathon that I am going to on Saturday.  As you know I have been playing a little with My Digital Studio and decided to once again use the stamp brush set Tea Shoppe for my card fronts.  You can view the MDS Catalog here.

It's a simple layout and I hope they all like it.  My colors are Rich Razzelberry, Whisper White and designer paper from Pocketful of Posies (122354).  On the bottom of my red piece (Poppy Parade) I used our Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402) and added some bling.  The bow uses a large white brad, you can use anything you choose.  It's called the Mary Brown bow.  The ribbon is our 5/8" Satin Ribbon in Marina Mist.  Looking at the book I don't see it, so it must be retired for now. 

Yesterday Stampin' Up introduced a new Cool Tool, the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate (125586).  It coordinates with our Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334).  If you enjoy making matching envelopes to your cards or like to make 3D projects this is the tool for you.
