Mojo and a Summer Mini Sneak Peek

Stampin up elements of style mojo monday

Ready for a Stampin' Up! sneak peek?  Today's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO125) was the perfect "canvas" to share stamp images from "Elements of Style," bound to be a hit when the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog is released on May 1.  This set oozes sophistication!


  • Stampin up mojo monday hummingbird My Circle Scissor Plus came in handy for the black circle behind the sentiment and the Real Red semi-circle (with the brads).  Click here for tips on using this tool successfully.
  • Stampin' Dimensionals add splashy 3-D to my snipped hummingbird.
  • Jet Black Stazon Ink gives a crisp and defined line image–  especially stunning with the floral stamp in the background.
  • I almost went strictly Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White.  However, I inadvertently saw how Soft Suede gave a new richness and rolled with it (love how it looks with the Antique Brass Vintage Brads, too).
  • Think clip-on tie . . . I tied the Real Red bow separately and attached it with Mini Glue Dots.
