When Shelli Gardner (Stampin' Up! CEO and Co-Founder) visited me in Tucson for my Workshop of a Lifetime (full details here), she was wearing an adorable black and pink sweater. Can you see the "translation" into the card (for Shelli) I created for today's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO 139)?
- I see so many beautiful 3-D paper blossoms but honed in on the simplicity of Nina Dee's flower (she's one of my Stampin' Pretty Pals–woo hoo). I punched circles, crumpled, assembled and voil?!
- The sentiment from Favorite Thoughts (new in the Summer Mini Catalog) is one of my favorites.
- An Itty Bitty accent adds the perfect touch. The little hearts and coffee cup are from the Summer Mini's Itty Bitty Bits stamp set . . . cropped with the coordinating circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (pack of 3 shapes).
- The ribbon on the box was applied using Sticky Tape–directly to the ribbon then folding and adhering. The ends are wrapped to the inside of the top of the matchbox so that it will open and close without removing the ribbon.
- 1" wide Melon Mambo designer paper gives a custom look to the Hershey's Nuggets. Four tuck neatly inside the box.
