Mojo 167

Well normally I dont get round to doing this challenge til later in the week. But I was up at 4.30 this morning and decided to make my time productive. Being in Australia it's always Tuesday for me when the challenge come though. I used the Artistic etchings set from stampin up, coupled with some DS papers also from stampin up. I love red, vanilla and black such a lovely classic combo.

My entry for the Sweet Stop Sketch this week. I used the dasher stamp from stamin up along with some of the xmas DS papaers. I don't know what I will do when the xmas period is over. I always find myself stuck when I dont have to make them any more lol.

Play Date Cafe

I must say I do look forward to the Play Date colour challenges each week. This week I looked and though no way can I do that. but after a bit of thought I managed this card. I embossed the swirls with silver embossing powder on grey card and mounted it on cherry cobbler just cause I think it need that splash of colour. The base is Kraft. I stamped the image with chocolate chip ink and added a silver ribbon.

I made 2 entries for this weeks challenge, one a xmas card and one a birthday card. Great easy design. I used my 'season of joy' stamp set for the xmas one and my embrace life set for the 2nd card. Both these sets are great.

Card Pattern Challenge

I decided to keep this one relatively simple. I love my new artistic etchings stamp set from stampin up. I love black and red combo and decided to stick with this. Very simple but I like it.

You can find the challenge HERE.

Play Date Cafe

Decided a boy card was the order of the day. It didnt exactly turn out the way I pictured it in my head but I am reasonably happy with the result. I used my stamp set from Taylored Expression for this one. I love the rock and roll. I stamped the background in a burgundy colour before stamping the rock boy in bright blue. I added some pink crystals and a pink star. I mounted the main window on pale blue.

Taylored Expression with the Curtain Call Challenge

Wow I did find the colours a bit of a challenge today. I didnt have any tangerine tango so I went with some old DS paper in a peachy colour (cameo coral I think). I used the Embrace Life stamp set from stampin up. It is so far from what I would put together but I actually really like the result.

You can find both challenges

Sweet Sat Sketch

Ok I have not posted in aggggges. My mojo deserted me and I really have been exhausted working full time holiday cover. It really doesn't suit me with my MS but hopefully I will be dropping from 4 days to 3 days soon. Leaving more time for craft lol.

I really had to force myself to make some cards in the hope my mojo would reappear. I am satisfied with my few efforts over the last few days and have managed a few cards these 2 I made with males in mind, the one on the left is the one I am using for this challenge.

this is my entry for Sweet Stop this week which you can enter HERE
