MOJO133 – Awash With Flowers

Welcome to SandiesKorner this Thursday morning.  Now that everybody knows about Stampin' Ups new color renovation we can get back to chatting.  I just finished up my version of this weeks MOJO Monday #133 sketch.  It turned out soooo cute.  Here's just to name a few of the supplies that I used.  Cardbase is So Saffron #105118 matted with a piece of Rose Red #102544 and then a piece of Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper #115673MOJO133 Awash With Flowers Spring SpecialMy next layer is rectangles cut at  2 x 3" and matted again with a piece of So Saffron DP #112152.  Next is a Rose Red band measured at 1 3/4 x 4 with a piece of Whisper White Sation Ribbon # 117291 from the Occasion Mini.  My stamp set is Awash With Flowers #120549 stamped with black ink on a piece of Whisper White.  Inks are Rose Red, Old Olive, and So Saffron.  I have to admit I'm a bit of a pill about lining images up so I used my Stamp a Ma Jig #101049 for a little help.  It sure is a handy dandy little tool to have around.  For my ovals I did use my nesties.  I'm hoping that Stampin' Up will come out with large ovals for nesting large images.  So far we just have smaller ones for sentiments.  Maybe in the next new catty.  A girl can always hope.  Right.  I still thought it could use a little pizzazzzzzz so I added some bling for sparkle. 

It's not too late. the Occasion Mini will end at the end of this month.  It has been such a wonderful mini this year.  I got way to may stamp sets, but I love them all.  LOL  Over the next few weeks be checkin' those wish lists so you don't miss out on anything.  Stampin' Ups policy is not to take anything from the mini's and put it in the new catty.  There are some exceptions this year like the Scallop Trim Border Punch from the SAB, and the stamp sets Vintage Vogue and Tiny Tags. 

If you get a chance I would love to hear your thoughts on the new Color Renovation.  This is always an exciting time for us demos.  I can't wait to get my hands on some of the new colors to show you.  You too can pre order the new products all you have to do is Join Sandy's Stampers and you to can be one of the first to experience these new products.  Click here and join my team and take your stamping to the next level.  My password is sandy murphy.  We will give you all the help you need to get you started.  We can start to pre order June 1st.  I do understand that Stampin' Up is going to offer kits to help us replace some of the retired products.  As far as I know this will be offered to customers as well.   

Thanks for stopping by to chat with me.  I'll see you back here tomorrow with another card to share.  Toodles

Spring Time With Herb Expressions

Hello Friends –  Spring has sure spung here in Missouri, it seems like in just one short week everything has turned green.  My card today fits right in.  I used WW as my base matted it with Olive Green and So Saffron.  I just love scallops so I cut a 3.25" square and used my Scallop Trim Corner Punch and the matching Scallop Trim Border punches to make the scallops on my square.  I know you have seen lots of scallop squares, but I love them none the less.  Herb Ex[ressions Stampin' UpMy stamp set is Herb Expression #113224 and is colored with Barley Banana and Certainly Celery markers,  I decided to use up a little of my 1.25" stripped ribbon (no sense hording it, right) and added a sentiment from the Tiny Tags set punched with the Medium Jewlery Tag punch.  Don't punches make your life so much easier.

Most of these items can be found in the Occasions Mini, which by the way expires at the end of this month.  Yes that's right, you still have plenty of time (April 30th) to make your final decisions and place your orders.  There's a lot going on in this mini, with the introduction of clear mount stamps, the new design for punches. the lucious satin ribbon and don't forget the Sweet Pea Designer Paper.  Be sure and make a wish list so nothing gets overlooked. 

Supplies You Need To Make This Card:

  • Card base is WW #100730 cut at 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5
  • 1st layer is Old Olive #100702 cut at 5.25 x 4 with a piece of So Saffron DP #112152 cut at 2 x 4"

My card base is Dusty Durango cut at 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.25.  I added four 1.25" WW squares and put in each corner, then I used a piece of Sweet Pea DP matted over them.  For my focal point I used Dusty Druango, So Saffron and Whisper White.  My sentiment is from Picnic Parade.  For embellishments I used a little Dusty Durango Polka Dot Ribbon and two small Really Rust buttons.  Added some bling for a little pizazzzzz!  I just love it.  There is something about large droopie flower petals and big green leaves that puts a big smile on my face.  Go figure.  LOL
