On the Grow Sneak Peek

Stampin up pretty mojo monday summer mini catalog
Vrooooom!  Isn't this little scooter sweet?  It's part of the On the Grow stamp set, available in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog on May 1.  I'll be offering more sneak peeks from the Summer Mini this week.  Stay tuned if you have an "inquiring" mind!

It's also time for a new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO186). 


  • Stampin up blog mojo monday pretty on the grow Since watercoloring isn't my strong suit, I prefer to go the easy route.  I used Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wonder Crayons to add just a touch of color to the image and blended with a Blender Pen.
  • Keep accents simple.  I added one Circle Ice Rhinestone Brad for a snippet of bling in the corner.
  • Adhesive on the back of my Designer Series Paper keeps the Linen Thread in place.
