LET'S KICK IT OFF WITH TODAY'S MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE!
Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #216 should get your stamping ideas flowing. I used Stampin' Up! Pool Party Textured Card Stock for the horizontal strips. The combination of Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black are so crisp and "wintery" together, especially against Whisper White. Consider a trio of pretty designer series paper patterns as an alternative . . .
- Layering Whisper White on top of a Whisper White card base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) is a quick way to create a "faux emboss" look.
- I'm getting excellent mileage out of my Jolly Bingo Bits stamps (images below). They contributed the adorable penguin and the snowflakes. To find more samples using Stampin' Up! Jolly Bingo Bits, use my "SEARCHBLOG" tool on the left or CLICK HERE and type in: Jolly Bingo Bits.
- The flagged end is a snap using a 1 3/8" Square Punch. Watch my VIDEO TUTORIAL to learn how.
- The touch of Cherry Cobbler Quilted Satin Ribbon (Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog) is stunning. I may have withdrawal issues if this ribbon isn't continued beyond the Holiday Mini!
