MOJO164 & Sew Easy WOW Video

Stampin up mojo monday contempo christmas
Is it Mojo time already?  Welcome to another Mojo Monday sketch challenge (MOJO164).  Julee Tilman dreams up some of the best layouts to test our papercrafting skills. 


I'm seriously excited to go full steam with holiday tips and projects over the next few weeks on my Stampin' Pretty blog.  If you want a bigger dose, be sure to check out my popular on-line holiday workshop and class options at the end of this post.  

Please keep them coming!  I have learned many little tips and great ideas from both of your video series–Nancy R.

Stampin up mojo monday contempo christmas modern label punch STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • Sponging in River Rock and Rich Razzleberry adds dimension and a vintage look.  The embossed texture really pops.
  • For a little polish, I punched just a sliver of the Modern Label Punch in Rich Razzleberry and layered it on the sentiment.
  • Layering punches take the sentiment for simple to WOW!

TOUCH OF CLASS:  Watch, repeat and rewind 24/7!  Join me for my full-length video demonstrations of the following holiday projects.  Available as on-line workshops or individual classes.  Demonstrators welcome, too!

Jennie P's thoughts:  I'm a hobbyist demo and need all the help I can get when I am trying to make a project.  I really love your videos and was curious enough to buy this and I'm glad I did!

  1. Your card is so gorgeous!!! I was hopping the hop and there it was… how’d I miss this one. One of my fav’s. Hugs,

  2. Thanks for the video and the tip about using that punch. I am a needleworker and probably the only one who told Ann she should cross all her stitches the same way! She had a fantastic card one day and there were these stitches going both ways. My eye was drawn to that. Since then, we have been friends and E-mail a lot! The colors on this card was just plain amazing. I have a friend who wants purple and I think maybe this might be a good color combination! Plus, how did I miss that sentiment in that stamp set!?! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!

  3. Mary, I am loving this card (the color, design, embossing, everything about it). Now I wish I hadn’t made my Christmas cards so early. ;( Is it too early to work on 2011 Christmas cards ? LOL. Your tutorial was wonderful as always. Thanks for rocking my world. Until next time, ((Hugs) Becky

  4. I would of never added stitching to my cards until this video. Thanks for the tutorial. I guess I need to buy that punch..*giggles*

  5. What a cute take on the stitching craze! I used to sew a lot (imagine leisure suits?), seriously, now I don’t even own a sewing machine and am happy about that, but I love the look, too! What a great way to combine crafts. Thanks.

  6. Very attractive card, love the color combination. Thanks too for the great “cross-stitch” video I’m a visual person so it really helps to see someone else actually do the stitching.

  7. You are sooo creative, Mary! Thanks for sharing this beautiful card – I love all of the little details!! 🙂

  8. Love the card! I have seen that “cross stitch” before. I am “sew” glad to see how it was done. Thanks for the tip on the adhesive.

  9. Love, Love, Love this card! I love those colors for a Holiday card…who would have thought they would be so pretty together with a christmas ornament.
