A simple, classic layout and one you can use over and over.  That describes this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO384) and my card creation today for the Mojo Monday Design Team.



  • Painted Petals stamp set is oh, so lovely and on the list of My Favorite Things in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.

  • The colors are fresh for spring and images echoed in the coordinating Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I used the Wild Wasabi stripe pattern.

  • The Painted Petals stamp set is available in Wood-Mount, Clear-Mount and Photopolymer (clear, translucent).  My “clear” choice is photopolymer for easy and precise layering.

  • A trio of Pacific Point Candy Dots (Brights Candy Dots) “punctuate” the Wild Wasabi Layer.

  1. I love that it inspires me to stamp. Stamping is one of my favorite parts of the day . . . relaxing and a sense of accomplishment when you finish a project.

  2. I love this card. So pretty and spirited. Love the colors, the layout, the softness of the flower, and the pop of the candy dots.
    As always, makes me want to stamp more.?

  3. This is absolutely stunning, Mary! Such a striking color combo.

  4. Carol Carriveau

    Lovely Mary, always love blue and green together…and love clean and simple cards!

  5. Thanks so much for your comments today! They keep me inspired!

  6. Stunning card, Mary. The blue and green together just pop! Thanks for sharing.

  7. I love, love, LOVE the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set and am intrigued by the layering technique. Can’t wait to try it! However, I have a question: what size stamp block do I need for the flower part? (Trying to get my order together!)

  8. Love your clean and bold card design! This color combo always takes me back to the 70’s when it was a popular combo!

  9. Thanks, Frenchie. I believe if you pre-cut everything, it would work for new stampers. It’s a pretty basic card! Measurements of the top three rectangles (layers) are: Whisper White 2 1/8″ x 4″, Pacific Point 2 3/8″ x 4 1/4″, Wild Wasabi 3″ x 4 1/2″. The card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. The piece with Whisper White, Pacific Point scallop border and the stripe pattern from Painted Blooms measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.

  10. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Mary!! This def is a fresh springy card! I am gonna have to CASe this for myself as well as maybe for a class (I’ve been a no mojo kinda mood lately) But, I do have a question for you in your opinion do you think this would be easy enough for an ALL newbie type class? That’s where I am having trouble, never have I done where I have all new people except for 1.

    TIA 🙂
    You rock!

  11. Beautiful!! I always enjoy your blog!

  12. Excellent question, Kathy! Unless otherwise noted, my cards are standard A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). Thank includes today’s card. Thank you for your sweet words!

  13. My favorite touch has to be the three Candy Dots! PERFECT addition.

  14. What a great sketch and your take on it is lovely Mary, with this colors that go so beautiful together.
    Thank you for sharing.

  15. Beautiful! I love these colors together, it’s a very cheerful card. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Mary, I see all of your beautiful cards. What size are they? I usually make the A-2size, but this one looks bigger. Stii having trouble finding my mojo when it comes to making cards.

    So, what size do you usually make?

    Thanks, Kathy
