Happiness Is Mojo Monday!

Stampin up font of you mojo monday 74

It's Mojo Monday and Julee Tilman shares another sketch extraordinaire on her Mojo Monday Blog.  Sketches are the one thing I rely on the most to get kickstarted on a project.  I feel so honored to be part of her Mojo Maker Design Team!

Font of You is such a clever and pretty stamp set.  It's aptly named because all the images are made up of tiny letters!  Here's a card I made previously using the umbrella from this set.

TIP:  I found inspiration in the colors and the diamond pattern in this Elle Decor magazine photo (March, 2009).

I stamped the flower and pot twice in Jet Black Stazon Ink, first on Very Vanilla and second on Perfect Plum.  Using Paper Snips, I clipped out the Perfect Plum vase and layered it with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals over Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon.  TIP:  I think the Riding Hood ribbon is a close enough match with the Ruby Red card stock.

 The flowers came to life by dotting Stampin' Up!'s Cameo Coral and Ruby Red Markers on the blooms.  TIP:  For added interest, I also dotted the blooms and accented the stems with a Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll Pen.  The image was matted on Cameo Coral card stock and attached to a mat of Ruby Red with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sentiment (also from Font of You) was inked up in Jet Black Stazon. TIP:  To isolate the word "happiness" from the rest of the text, I used a post it note to cover the "unwanted" text before stamping.  I had a reader suggest recently that you also can use tape the same way.  Quick and easy.  Using the Large Oval Punch, I cropped the sentiment and tucked it underneath the main panel.

Cameo Coral Textured card stock was layered over Ruby Red for the top and bottom vertical panels.  Using a snazzy diamond pattern from Stampin' Up!'s Exclusive Texturz Backgrounds and a Big Shot, I created this luscious diamond texture in Perfect Plum.  It's layered on a 4.25 x 5.5 card base of Very Vanilla.

  2. Just gorgeous, Mary! Love your inspiration piece and your finished card. I really didn’t like this set when I saw it in the catalog, but you keep making me re-think it with your gorgeous creations.

  3. Love your card today. Well I love your cards every day! Your blog is one of the first things I check each morning. Thanks for all your inspiration.

  4. Now that is what I am talking about with the Texturz plates, look how good yours looks! My order will be going in this week and I will get that darn rubber!! Thanks for all your help! Love this card and the colours you choose.

  5. You have done it yet again Mary. Just when I think you’re cards can’t get any better they do! LOL

  6. Very fun and bright! This is one of the most unique sets in the new catalog, in my opinion. Love what you did with it here!

  7. I didn’t think much of this set in the catalog but now I have loved both of your cards done with it. You should have a permanent “Enabler” warning at the top of your page!

  8. This is BEAUTIFUL, Mary. It’s interesting how a SU set can leave you unimpressed and then you see a lovely card with it and get a complete different perspective. I love the way you’ve been showing the set you used, so helpful!

  9. Wow Mary, this card is great! I always love hearing where the inspiration comes from. Thanks for the tip on the “closeness” of the ribbon color too!
