Mojo Monday 190

Stampin up mojo monday happy greetings rubber stamp ideas Welcome to a new Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO190).  This classic design worked beautifully with the Happy Greetings sentiment (Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog).  I grabbed my Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch for the sweet floral accent on the right.  Click for the Triple Layer Punch Video Tutorial I shared last week.

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • I love fashion catalogs for inspiration.  This adorable dress inspired both my color choices and all the scallops. 
  • Stampin up mojo monday handmade card idea Stampin up triple layer punch video tutorial scallop edge border Stagger each row of scallops and cut off the excess on the edges after you adhere them to card stock.  You'll get a clean edge that way without needing to measure.
  • Using the Scallop Trim Border and Corner Punches together takes practice.  I relied on this Border and Corner Punch Chart to create the mat for the sentiment.
  • Know when to hold up.  I debated on whether to pop up the word "NICEST" in Melon Mambo.  It's a fun alternative if you want a little extra spark.  Which version to you prefer?

    Great card…great colours! Wow!

  3. Angie in Illinois

    Thanks for the Borders and Corner Punch Chart – very useful! As usual, this is a great card.

  4. Fun card! Love how you got your inspiration and it worked beautifully!

  5. What a cute card! Love the colors! You are so creative!

  6. Joan Thompson

    What a great idea for my tower of scraps! Thanks again Mary.

  7. These are great colors together – very fresh and clean! Love all of the scallops!

    i always love a pop in a word on a card but for some reason your right…..your card without ‘nicest’ popped looks best. great job

  9. While I like the popped word in general, for this card I think keeping the sentiment the same color works better. It keeps the sentiment from having to compete with the colorful back ground. These are gorgeous colors, by the way.

  10. Now I not only want your card, I want that dress, too!!! 🙂 So fun to see where your inspiration came from, Mary. I love coming to your blog – it’s so fresh and clean. As for ‘Nicest’ – I like both the brown (classy) and the popped-up-pink (sassy); I’m easy! Have a wonderful day!

  11. Sweet card, Mary! Love all those scallops and love how you shared the inspiration photo!

  12. Love it! I prefer the non popped up version. Less is more with all those beautiful scallops!

  13. I prefer the non-popped-up (Soft Seude) version of “nicest.” I find that the scallops themselves provide plenty of color such that no popping is needed.

  14. Cute, cute, CUTE! I like the flat version of the sentiment the best.

  15. teresa kline aka va.sunshine

    luv this and the many colorful layers…perfect fun card! Hope your week is awesome!

    enjoy *~*

  16. Mary, I love this card! Great colors – love that you showed the inspiration piece! That is an awesome stamp set, too 🙂

  17. Jennie Portonova

    You ask a tough question, as I like them both. However, if I need to vote, I will go with the NON popped version and just one color for the greeting. I also like that you shared your inspiration picture. 🙂

  18. I love the layout of this card! It’s simple yet it looks like it took a long time to make. Everything comes together nicely & complements the other!

  19. Beautiful card Mary! I just love the color combo and your sentiment is great! I can’t wait to get this set!!
