Mojo Monday Sketch 86

Stampin up pocket silhouettes mojo monday 86

Welcome to another Mojo Monday morning!  In an earlier post, I used the Wide Oval Punch to create a vase for this card.  Today I fashioned a vase with the same punch by "subtracting" from the card stock.  Here's today's Mojo Monday Sketch 86 (MOJO86)

  • Using Stampin' Up!'s Wide Oval and Horizontal Slot Punch I cropped out my vase outline.  TIP:  To produce the wider "lip" at the top of the vase, the slot punch was punched twice, moving slightly left and right.
  • A Pocket Silhouettes stamp was inked in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink and stamped on Really Rust card stock. 
  • I stamped another design from Pocket Silhouettes in Chocolate Chip Craft Ink on Very Vanilla twice.  TIP:  One of the advantages of Stampin' Up!'s Craft Ink (as opposed to Classic Ink, which I use for most purposes) is that it's stickier so you can emboss it.  I sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder over all three images and heat embossed for a raised and shiny finish.
  • My vase outline was adhered over the center image using Stampin' Dimensionals.  Vintage Brads doll up the corners.
  • To produce a distressed edge on the side images, I used a Cutter Kit.  Excellent results and saves my fingernails.
  • The Very Vanilla card base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". It's topped (from top to bottom) with Really Rust Textured card stock, a strip of Textured Chocolate Chip, Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series Paper and a sweet eyelet border in Really Rust.
  • The sentiment is from Chit Chat Rub-Ons.  TIP:  This set of rub-ons comes with one sheet each of Chocolate Chip and Whisper White.  Just about every occasion is addressed and they are simple to align and transfer.
