Stampingbella leads to the MOJO

It's time for another MOJO sketch challenge.  Challenge # 303
to be exact.  

I used my cakebella image from Stamping Bella.  I colored
her with pencils and paper pieced her pants.
Then inked the edges with Adirondak's Pitch
Black ink.

All the papers are from a 6x6 paper stack by Prima
called North Country Collection.

I made banners using papers from the
collection.  Tied some black baker's twine around
them and called it done.

Combined Card Challenge Leads to ....

I decided to combine MOJO 302 sketch and 
the inspiration challenge from The Curtain Call
Inspiration Challenge.  I am not sure I am thrilled
with the result but it's what I came up with.

I did not have nautical themed stamps, so I
focused on the purse from the inspiration collage.

I stamped my image on blue cardstock and
paper pieced that onto the image I stamped and
embossed in gold.  I really wanted the purse handle
to look like a chain.
The mesh at the bottom adds texture and I do like
the addition of the gold buckle at the bottom.

The yellow star adds a bit of pop.  All the paper came
from my stash of leftovers.

I used StazOn in black and Ranger's Adirondak in
Jet Black to emboss with.

Another Sketch that brings the MoJO

I decided to try another sketch challenge.  This time
MOJO 301 is the inspiration.  I used my George
Cricut to cut out the ovals.  The stamp is from
Katie & co.  Isn't it cute?  I colored with colored
pencils.  A sizzix die was used for the flowers.
Papers from my stash and some pearl accents
tie it together.  This was fun sketch.  I will 
definitely be using it again.

A Sweet Sketch is Helpful

I was checking out sketch blogs and found a winner
last week.  See the sketch above for my inspiration.

I finally got a bit of time this morning to see what
I could do with this sketch.  I am happy with the 
results.  I used up scrap paper and even got
an old hero arts stamp (the shadow blocks)
inky.  The flowers are from Studio G.
The sentiment is a go to stamp I use all
the time from Stampin' Up!

Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend.

Color Blocking with Papertrey Ink Stamps

This is inspired by a challenge from Splitcoast Stampers,
to use color blocking.  They even have a great tutorial.

All the stamps are Papertrey ink.  They are from the
Life set or Fillable Frames set.  The die is also from 
Papertrey ink.

I used StazOn black for the sentiment and frame.
Village Cream from Papertrey is also used for the
image on the front.  

The paper is from my scrap pile.  I definitely want
to do this again.  It is a great way to use up those 

Gate Card Fold Happiness!

I have been getting a lot of scrapbooking and card making done recently.  
I want to try to share some of this happiness.  First a variation of
a gate card fold I found on Pinintrest. Here is the inspiration:

So, I started out with paper scraps out of my pile.  I had no 
idea where this card might go, but love the results.  
The carriage stamp is from Inkadinkado, stamped
 in StazOn brown, and colored with 
pencils.  On the small inner flap I used Versamark ink 
and a cute stamp by Hero Arts of baby feet. 
 Then for the sentiment I used
StazOn again with a stamp by Stampendous.

I know just who will be receiving this at work soon.

Hope you enjoy and have a great day.
