Mojo93Sketch Hot off the press!  Today's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO93) is balanced and beautiful.  I used a little artistic license to swap the positioning of the sentiment and the brads.  Remember, challenges are meant to inspire not dictate your artwork!
  • Using all the new Stampin' Up! In Colors Markers (available July 1), I colored this Eastern Blooms stem and flowers directly on the rubber and stamped on Whisper White card stock.

  • The real "wow" comes from the amazing detailing that occurs when I dry emboss the stem with the Floral Frenzy Classy Brass Template.
  • Place the template face down on the light table.   TIP:  I use a bit of Dotto temporary adhesive to hold it in place.

  • Next, line up the stems with the brass pattern.  TIP:  Rub wax paper over the surface you are going to texture before using the Stylus.  You get a better "glide."
  • TIP:  The small tip of the wooden Stylus that Stampin' Up! offers works well for details like these small flowers.
  • The corner of the image panel is rounded and layered over Rich Razzleberry Textured card stock (also sporting a rounded corner).
  • Stampin' Dimensionals provide a convenient space for the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot ribbon to slip through. 
  • A 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" square of Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper (available July 1) is dolled up with a Scallop Edge border in Rich Razzleberry Textured Card Stock.
  • TIP:  The polka dots are only on one side of the ribbon.  I tie the ribbon first then gently turn the "wings" so that all the polka dots are facing up.  Very easy.
  • Three Circle Rhinestone brads in a coordinating soft orange add pop to Textured Bermuda Bay Card Stock.
  • The Whisper White card base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", scored on the top.
  • I again used Stampin' Up! Markers (Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry) to create the two color image for the sentiment (stamp from Bella's Bloom).  
  • It's cropped with a Large Oval Punch and layered with Stampin' Dimensionals over a Melon Mambo Scalloped Oval.
This is a big dose of color but I loved the final result.  Click here to see all my Sneak Peek Samples from the new Stampin' Up! 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog.
