Mojo Monday & New WOW Punch Video!

Stampin up patterned party rubber stamps mojo monday birthday card
I have so much to share with you today, including this week's  Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO204) and my latest 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial.

STILL USING YOUR SCISSORS TO CREATE FLAGGED ENDS?  Flagged ends (as used on today's birthday card and in the Mojo Sketch) are a hot trend in papercrafting.  This 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial shows you how to use a Square Punch to obtain quick,  clean and consistent results.



  • Stampin up patterned party heat embossing powder circle scissor plus punch The new Stampin' Up! embossing powder colors are gorgeous.  I used Tempting Turquoise on the gift image for a shiny, raised finish.  Other available colors include:  Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi and Melon Mambo.
  • A snippet of White Baker's Twine gives the buttons a stitched look.  Mini Glue Dots keep the buttons and twine solidly in place.
  • The birthday sentiment with the snazzy font is from Happiest Birthday Wishes, one of the exclusive hostess stamp sets in the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog. 
  • DID YOU KNOW?  You can earn ANY hostess set starting with a $150 product order.  Available when you order on-line, too!!  See the NEW Stampin' Up! Hostess Rewards Program!
  • Heat embossing gets neat and tidy.  Re-purpose your wood-mount stamp storage containers (or find comparable inexpensive plastic storage) as full-time embossing storage and trays–all in one.  I have a container for each color and pop them back in the drawer "as is" when done.  My preferred size is  6.5 x 9" to easily cover and swish an A2 sized card layer.

  1. LOVE everything about this card Mary – and thanks for the video on creating the point end of our banners with any of the square punches. SO MUCH PRETTIER and HASSLE FREE.

    And one last thank you for all your amazing tips and ideas within all your post – you make it totally worth reading your entire post (always).

  2. Super Card! I love the idea for keeping each color of embossing pwd in a container. Much quicker and less mess!

  3. Love the card & great tutorial! You amaze me at how you think of things that I would never! What would we do without you!! Also, I got my SU! Holiday Mini Catalog & am now VERY ready for September 1!!!

  4. What a great tip! I wonder if you can use punches to make the same pennant style ends with ribbon? Maybe if I spray some starch on the ends this will work? Have you tried it?

  5. Such a bright fun card! Love the daffodil & turquoise together. That dsp is one of my favorites. Thanks for the great tip on making the flag ends with the punch. I’m not always the neatest, so know that will come in handy.

  6. What a clever way to use the punches!! Who would have thought of that, except you Mary! Thank you! A nice card, too!!

  7. Wow, I have always got so frustrated with myself trying to use my scissors to get that look! Thanks Mary!

  8. Good morning, Mary: What a great idea to use those punches for creating the flagged end!! and the idea for re-using the wood mount stamp cases is inspired!! Now that I’m turning all my wood mount stamps to clear mount, (thanks to your other video) I will have this perfectly sized containers for embosing powders, glitter, etc.
    Thanks for always sharing your ideas.
