Mojo Monday 179

Stampin up mojo monday big shot lattice bigz die
I created two completely different looks using the same sketch.  This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO179) is based off a card I posted previously (see below).  The Mojomaker goddess, Julee Tilman, transformed it into a sketch for you to try this week!  Thanks, Julee.  

Here's the original card I created in August, 2009, that Julee used to create this week's challenge.  Details and product information HERE.


  • Stampin up mojo monday big shot lattice bigz die angle To top off the Early Espresso flower centers, I used the Sweet Buttons Embosslits Die (Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog).  Bonus:  This die achieves a splashy look with less bulk to mail than real buttons.  
  • The large sunflower was created using the Stampin' Up! Fancy Flower Punch.  Check out my video tutorial on how the Fancy Flower Punch can pop out a new shape with just a "twist."
  • The Bigz Lattice Die in the background adds a really powerful element in a snap.
