Trendy Trees Mojo Monday 105

Stampin up mojo monday trendy trees


Welcome to this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge (MOJO105).  It feels good to be back home with my family again.  However, my long weekend in St. George as part of the Stampin' Up! Founder's Circle Retreat was fabulous, inspiring and fun.  We got the thumbs up to share some early sneak peeks from the next Occasions Mini Catalog.  Stay tuned!


  • Stampin up trendy trees

    Using the Stampin' Up! In Color Markers, I applied Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango and Soft Suede directly to the rubber of the tree leaves.  Be sure to "huff" a few times on the inked rubber to moisten before stamping.

  • To layer the leaves precisely over the tree trunk, a Stamp-a-ma-jig is your BFF (best friend forever).
  • A 1" Circle Punch was a life saver in creating the big scallop border.  I used the spiral "leaves" from the Trendy Trees stamp set before punching.
  • Experiment with layering punches to produce unique effects.  I adore the Word Window Punch layered over the Modern Label Punch.  I swooped this clever idea from my Stampin' Pretty Pal, Melissa Young.
  • I used the Photo Corners Punch to pop out the top left corner element.  It's perfect for creating a quick right angle.
  • Think you can't use ribbon on a masculine card?  Sure you can.  Just keep it clean.  It dresses up a card in the way a tie dresses up a suit.  Check out more of my  masculine card samples.

DON'T MISS OUT!  There's still time to play the Pals Paper Arts KISS Challenge (Keep It Simple, Sweetie).  Check out the latest samples and let your artistic juices flow.
