Welcome to another Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO224).  Today’s card is a playful spin on vintage using Stampin’ Up! Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper (new in the Occasions Mini Catalog).Mojo224SketchSTAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Stop the presses!  I sponged!  To add soft dimension, I sponged a touch of Whisper White Craft Ink on the edges of the Crumb Cake card stock.
  • After running a snippet of Stampin’ Up! White Baker’s Twine through my buttons, I attached them with Mini Glue Dots–a good bet that they will stay put.

  • I used the Circles #2 Originals Die for the 2″ Poppy Parade Circle.
  • A sweet Poppy Parade Brad offers a SNEAK PEEK from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack (available Jan. 24).

  • For a finishing touch, I lined a Crumb Cake envelope with a coordinating piece of Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper.

    Pretty card, and congrats on sponging! I love sponging even if it just lightly done. I also love how you get a totally different look by sponging with a sponge, or with a dauber, so that’s your next mission should you choose to accept it! lol

  5. What a great card Mary! I love the new Attic Boutique paper and you’ve given it a whole new twist. Love the white buttons and twine. Way to go on the sponging! Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs

  6. I love it…I’m new to your blog, but will be a new follower…
