Mojo Monday Sketch 138

Here it is better late than never, my Mojo Monday interpretation of Sketch #138.

Nothing special about the card as I'm working with limited stamps sitting out here at the Lake.  The weather has been so perfect, dh has been catching fish (catch and release) and we're both as content as can be.  I used the Asian Artistry SU set to stamp the blossom and instead of cutting it out I mock-popped by cutting the blossom to a smaller mat and cut around the overhang - giving the illusion of it being cut out totally and popped up.  The DP is from Basic Grey Porcelain collection.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

I hear Wedding Bells

My nephew's oldest daughter is getting married!!  The gift of choice is  probably $$ because they have lived together for a year, so,  I needed a container / card to pop a check into.  One of the wonderful creators at Magnolia-icious gave me the idea to make a box easel card. Forgive me, but I can't remember the link to give credit to someone.

This card is four boxes in a box, because I had to make a box to give it in.  Diana at Magnolia-icious sent my Tilda Bride and Edwin Groom just in time for me to play - and play I did - for 3 days to get this right.  Diana also gave me a little tip - to order the Bride and Groom separately so that they can be used individually or together on a card.  Great idea Diana! I coloured the images, cut them out and popped the bride up in front of her Groom.  I  apologize for the photography - I'm sitting in the sun out at the lake and can't seem to get the proper lighting.

Mojo Monday Sketch 137

A little late for Monday, but better late than never.  Check out the different format for the Mojo Monday entries here.  Makes for so much better viewing.

This week is also another contest week.  My little card is just an entry - a flat little card, because it has to be mailed.  I'm so in love with the little Magnolia people - they are just too darn cute.

This card is using the Summer Tilda stamp.  The flowers are from Stampin' Up, which I coloured, cut out and arranged them to go beside Tilda.

Of course, I altered  the interpretation of the sketch by turning it 270 degrees to make it work with the image I chose.  It is a bright and sunny card that is going to be sent to a bright and sunny person.

Thanks for stopping by - I always enjoy the comments that are left.

Remember, Stamp up a storm, Ink up a wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day.
