Mojo #355

Hi everyone, I would like to share my card with you that I have made for the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday this week.
I really liked the vintage look that I used in my picture frames from yesterday, so I have used the same colours for my card. 

I inked and stamped the Typeset DPS with Lost Lagoon and Baked Brown Sugar using the "Kinda Eclectic" stamp set.  The sentiment is from the "And Many More" stamp set and a butterfly has been added from the "Papillon Potpourri" stamp set.  The pearls for the flower centres were coloured using the bronze blendability from the skin tone set.

Vintage Typeset

I have been getting back into scrapbooking (my first love before I got into card making).  I made these 3 picture frames to hang on my wall, and as the photographs are of my grand parents and great grand mother and great uncle I wanted to give the frames a vintage feel.

I purchased the 6" x 6" scrapbooking frames from Spotlight.  They are raw wood so I made a distress wash of Baked Brown Sugar with 5 drops of reinker with a little water to distress them with.  Once this colour was dried I found is was not quite the colour that I was after, so I made another distress wash with Early Espresso and painted this over the Baked Brown Sugar.  This is the colour that I was happy with for my frames, it ended up like a Walnut Stain finish.

I used the Typeset Specialty DSP to cover all the frames.

For the first frame I randomly sponged on some Lost Lagoon and then stamped the leaf stamp from the Kinda Electic stamps set in Baked Brown Sugar.  All the edges were inked with Baked Brown Sugar.

For the second frame I sponged Lost Lagoon on a piece of Basic Black Neutrals Paper Stack DSP for the background.  Again all the edges were inked with Baked Brown Sugar.

For the third frame I stamped butterflies from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set in Baked Brown Sugar over the Typeset DSP.  The background piece had the leaf stamp from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set stamped randomly with Lost Lagoon.

All Abloom

Hi everyone, I have been missing in action for a couple of weeks as it was the end-of-financial year at work and I was a little bit busy, so had no time to get my hands into paper and ink.  I had a lovely day today catching up with some of the ideas that I had, to use some of the terrific new products in the new Annual Catalogue.  I completed 3 cards and 3 picture frames (these will be in a separate post).

I made a set of cards using the All Abloom DSP Paper Stack, the Flower Patch stamp set and the matching Flower Fair Framelits dies along with the new Kraft cardstock and the Large Polka Dot Textured embossing folder.  I inked all the edges with Crumb Cake and also lightly sponged Crumb Cake across the Large Polka Dot embossed piece of Kraft cardstock.  The base cards are made from the Naturals White cardstock.

Happy Blooming Birthday

Hi everyone, I would like to share my card with you that I created for the Mojo Monday Challenge based on this terrific sketch. 
I have use some new products from the Annual Catalogue with a colour scheme of Baked Brown Sugar, Hello Honey, Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana.  The flowers and sentiment are from the "Flower Patch" stamp set with the matching "Flower Fair" Framelits Dies.  The DSP is from the "Lullaby" paper pack.  To finish off I added some sequins from the 2013-2015 In-Colour Sequin Assortment embellishments.
