Mojo 193 Strength & Hope

Stampin up mojo monday rubber stamp strength and hope
Will you be able to sneak in some stamping time on Memorial Day?  This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO193) had me puzzled for a few minutes.  However, check out my tips below for an easy way to bring this layout to life!


  • The Whisper White card base is 5 1/4" square, a perfect fit for the Stampin' Up! Whisper White Medium Square Envelopes.
  • Crumb Cake is cut to 5" square and layered on top.
  • A square of Cherry Cobbler was cut to 3 1/2" square and sliced on the diagonal.  That's what I used to create the side triangles. Simple!
  • The scrunchy ribbon is easier than ever with Stampin' Up! Seam Binding Ribbon.  Here's my video on this quick trick.
  • You can make a difference!  Stampin' Up! will donate $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for every Strength & Hope rubber stamp set or the Strength and Hope Digital Kit (124475) sold.

  1. Mary, I was so taken with this card when I saw it on the Mojo Monday blog this morning. Everything about it is lovely; the color combination, the antique brads in the beautiful focal point, how you used the filigree -all so lovely. And, thanks for the tip on the triangles too, makes it so much easier!!

  2. I like the colours you picked. Almost looks like rich velvet!

  8. Hi Mary, just wanted to say that I am an avid follower of yours and to let you know that I cased one of your cards and gave credit to you for it, although it’s different to yours, hope you don’t mind? Keep up the good work!

  9. Good morning, Mary: This card is, as all the ones you make, beautiful!! When I saw it I was wondering how you made the triangles to fit so perfectly so, I’m glad you gave us those tips. Love the color combination and I must say that this stamp set is gorgeous.
    I know you are back from your Alaska trip so, welcome back. Did you see any Bald Eagles??
