It's Mojo Monday again and this beautiful sketch was designed by Julee Tilman for her Mojo Monday Sketch Blog (click here to see more). I'm thrilled to be able to contribute each week as a "mojo maker" designer.
I heat embossed the heart from A Happy Heart stamp set on Pink Pirouette card stock (hooray–rumor has it that this set survived the Holiday Mini and was continued in the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer 2009 Catalog. Need a copy of the new catalog? Click here for details). I used Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. TIP: One of the benefits of Craft (vs. Classic Ink) is that it's sticky enough to hold embossing powder for heat embossing.
The heart was snipped out and adhered to a lovely stripe from Sweet Always Designer Series Paper. It was cut and layered on Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip, all cropped with Circle Nestabilities zipped through my Big Shot Die Cut Machine.
The banner combines a tiny Pumpkin Pie floral pattern from Sweet Always over Chocolate Chip. TIP: A Paper Piercer and Template (Stampin' Up's Crafter's Tool Kit) add instant charm to the banner and corners of this project.
I used more of the same stripe designer paper over Chocolate Chip to top a 4.25 x 5.5 card base of Pink Pirouette.
TIP: Using a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Up! Marker, I isolated two sections of the sentiment (also Happy Heart) stamping one part at a time on Pink Pirouette. I did the same for the little heart on Regal Rose card stock. I used a 3/4" Circle Punch to crop the Pink Pirouette circles, 1/2" Circle Punch for the small heart and Boho Blossoms punch for the Chocolate Chip flower base. They are attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.
COMING UP! CHEEP TALK. That's not a typo. I want to share a few, very inexpensive, artful objects I discovered to add character to my new Stampin' Pretty Stamping Zone. A couple are a tribute to my feathered friends.
