They come to pack us this week and the move begins - there is a slight wait on getting into the new place so my stamp space will be out of commission for a few weeks.....very frustrating for me.  Hope to get some Thank You cards together as I have many to send the meantime I was playing with my Nestabilities and dug out my Lotus Pendants.....they are so fun to layer.  Used Mojo Monday 199 to inspire me and put this card together.  Really enjoying using this paper from K & C the florals are so rich and vintage looking.

Challenges:  Mojo Monday 199

Supplies:  CS, K&C Paper, Lotus Pendants and Circle Nestabilities, Pearls, Ribbon, Cross Brad, Our Daily Bread Design stamp

MOJO198 and Gettin Blingy!

     As I was checking some of the many blogs I follow I was drawn in by the MOJO Monday challenge.  I just really felt the need to follow a layout and see what I could do - this meant stepping out of my box!  I have this crazy paper I purchased by Anna Griffin has an animal print and is actually fuzzy.  The original plan was to use it for some coaster size decorative items I was going to make but I ended up using another pattern. It just seemed to call for bling and more bling when I got to going on it....I really like the new Nestabling by Want 2 Scrap - so easy to use and looks fabulous with the dies.  I also thought this was going to be a birthday card for a friend who love animal prints but as you can see that didn't happen.  The picture really doesn't do this is really very striking was actually fun to create. While it may be hard to believe that gold bling down the side is ribbon/decorative purchased from JoAnn Fabrics.

Psalm 9:10

       My goal yesterday was to clean up some of my stamping area - of course as soon as I could see the counter I wanted to play!  I was working on some cards for the bookstore of the church I attend and  Stampin Sisters in Christ has a challenge this week for a CAS card a great way to get two things done at once.  Everyone knows we girls are multi taskers at heart.  
      I have been wanting to use the elegant oval stamp and matching die from Our Daily Bread Designs for a few weeks. My original idea was to layer more but I liked the simplicity of this as I put it together.   You may note be able to see from the picture but I used Zing Embossing Powder in Copper  when I stamped the Elegant Oval.....what a pretty color it is and it matches the color of the paper perfectly!!
     Happy 4th of July to all!!!

Challenges:  Stampin Sisters in Christ

Supplies:  ODBD Elegant Oval Stamp, Spellbinders Custom Die, Zing Copper EP, Vellum paper from Stampin' Up, Zva Creative pearls, ribbon.
