Tuesday Cards

This week's cards include a revamped creation from a year or two ago and its similar "partner."  One of my favorite color combinations for cards is kraft and black.  The burlap flower with twine is the perfect embellishment.

Mojo Monday 449


I actually complete my Mojo Monday card on Monday--a first for me in a long time.  I chose Graphic 45's "Artisan Style"  paper from a 6x6 pad for this card to achieve a monochromatic result.  I'm not sure where the "smile" die originated; it's stored in a Fawn Lawn package, but I don't think that's where it belongs. There's even a little glitter on "smile," because I haven't used glitter in what seems like forever.

Tuesday Cards

These were cards that started with a stamped image I knew I wanted to alter with bleach.  The image is from Memory Box. (Only when I looked at the cards on the monitor did I realize that one of the dry-embossed layers is upside down--at least in relation to the other.)

Freshly Made Sketch -- Yellow and Black

The Sizzix Thinlit "Magical Butterfly" is the feature of my Freshly Made Sketches card, which also sports a dry-embossed front with yellow and black washi tape.  The Mae West quotation is an old Rubbernecker stamp.

Mojo Monday -- on Thursday Again

I rarely get my MOJO MONDAY card finished on Monday; to be honest, I often don't even start it on Monday.  Even with a great sketch, I need to think--a lot!

There are lots of shapes and layers on #447.  It was definitely a challenge to choose papers!  I ended up with a neutral colored card, employing SU's paper pack "Dimensions" again (two weeks ago, too). "Fantastic" is a new die from Verve.

Tuesday's Cards

I realize I haven't posted my Tuesday cards lately; I've been sending them, though, every Tuesday.Today, I mailed these two cards.  They feature digital images from Power Poppy of beautiful "parrot" tulips and a sincere sentiment.  The poppies were colored with markers and the blossoms covered with Glossy Accents.  (This particular layout was CASEd from a Power Poppy card by Dawn Burnworth, which I found on Pinterest.)

Mojo Monday Again

I've been taking a break from crafting for awhile; there were 4 CD's of photos taken at our son's wedding--2 1/2 years ago--that needed to be "curated."  (It's a photographic experience I wouldn't want to go through again, and I wasn't the photographer, but I paid for it.)  Anyway, that's taken care of, and Mojo Monday is a good place to resume.

I chose square because I always choose that shape over a circle.  And because I had a new paper pad, I was inspired to use the unusual patterns.  "Dimensions" is the SU paper pad; "Believe" is a new Penny Black die, and the butterfly is PinkPaislee's Artisan Cardboard.
