Just Another Mojo Monday . . . And a New WOW Video!

Stampin up scallop circle punch flower photo corner blog tutorial
Remember the song "Manic Monday" by the Bangles?  That song popped into my head thinking about today's blog post title so I rolled with it.  Hopefully, your Monday won't be "manic" and you'll find creative energy to stamp with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO211) by Julee Tilman.

Make your own photo corner element in seconds using a Stampin' Up! Square Punch . . .

Stampin up delightful dozen rubber stamp punch simply scoredSTAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:

  • The stunning flower was inspired by one on this drawer box by Katy McGloin, a member of my Stampin' Pretty Pals.
  • To create the flower, pop out six 1 3/4" Scallop Circles.  Crunch, mist with water and assemble on a brad.  Simple.
  • Worried about how to send a card with that pretty flower without it getting crushed?  Consider mailing this card on a well-cushioned trip in one of the Stampin' Up! Padded Envelopes (116911).  My mother is visiting this weekend so she will get this hand delivered (another alternative for "big" 3-D) in a clear envelope (102619).
  • Note the tr?s chic embossing details on the sentiment layer–courtesy of my Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool.
  • My inspiration for the flower and color scheme are from the Grandin Road home d?cor catalog.  That fun pillow caught my eye!

  1. I would have to say my new favorite “Bling” to add to my cards are the Designer printed brands. They give my flowers cute polka dot character.

  2. You did it again-classic and elegant w/ a touch of interest. I like the flower, enjoyed the video, and wondered about your sentiment piece before I read your notes. Wuv your stuff.

  3. I hear that song each Mojo Monday 🙂 it just adds to the challenge. Stunning card, love the flower. Fabulous video too.

  4. Mary, such a pretty card! Thanks for sharing. I wonder… do you actually mail cards like that? I see so many people post cards that are so “thick” or 3-D. I wonder if those cards ever get sent or given since they don’t fit into standard envelopes. Call me curious and wondering what to do… LOL.

  5. oh this is too weird. I am on my laptop, reading blogs and watching Dancing With the Stars…and the Bangles are singing Manic Monday as I’m reading this! I’m central time in Wisconsin.
    Just had to let you know! love love love your cards, your craft room your organizational skills!
    (lets tap into the lottery numbers next , haha)

  6. What a great tip on how to make the photo corner with the square punch — that is so cool! Love these cost saving tips. Very pretty card!

  7. Great Wow video. Loving the pretty flower too on the fabulous card you made. You rock as usual. Hugs, Becky

  8. I like the way you fed our creativity with simple elegant tips- Your WOW videos are just that ” WOW, how can she think up such cool ideas?” Thank you

  9. The colors you chose are great and the flower, too. Would like to know how you made the flower. The tutorial is great -TFS.

  10. I loved your card! Very neat tip on making photo corners. Thanks for the video! I’d love to know how you created such a beautiful bow as well. Do you have a tip on creating that specific bow? Its amazing!

  11. What a great hint for making the photo corners–so easy! Now, I’d love it if you’d do a Wow tutorial on how to do the scoring for the sentiment. I ‘get’ the lines, but haven’t figured out how to ‘do’ the rectangular box. Thanks, Mary…great card!

  12. Beautiful card! And what a great idea to use the square punch like that. Thanks for the tutorial 🙂

  13. I can’t thank you enough for this tutorial. I’ve always thought there must be a way of cutting photo corners with a square punch but couldn’t figure out how to do it. I’m off now to practise with my own square punch. Thanks so much for sharing today!

  14. Stunning card, Mary! I love how you find your inspiration and then inspire us with your classy creations. I am glad that I watched the video! My attempt would have made it more difficult, LOL. I still need help with bows, however!!!

  15. Suh a beautiful card Mary! And…..your one-minute to WOW video tutorial is AWESOME this week. Love that you can do this with any size square punch. You ROCKED this one girlfriend! Thanks for sharing.

  16. beautiful card -how clever to use the square punch to make the photo corner –thanks for sharing the tip

  17. Love this! The first thing I thought when I saw the card was how did she make that photo corner. And then I saw that you had already answered that question with a video! Thanks for the great tips!
