Mojo Monday #353

Mojo Monday 353

I was intrigued with the Mojo Monday #353 layout by Julee Tilman.  I’ve been wanting to design with the Moonlight Designer Series Paper stack and thought this would be a good challenge for me.  The color palette of this DSPS is a bit out of my comfort zone but I jumped in with both feet.  I started with a Soft Sky base.  The rectangle is triple layered with Basic Gray, Hello Honey and Dotted Moonlight DSPS.  The Lost Lagoon strip was embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder which added a subtle bit of texture.  I also triple layered the square with Basic Gray, Hello Honey and the Pennant Moonlight DSPS which I then popped with dimensionals.  Then I stamped the Just Sayin’ sentiment on Soft Sky to tie in with the base and die cut the cloud shape from the Word Bubbles Framelits and popped with dimensionals.  Finally, I gathered one edge of the Hello Honey In Color stitched ribbon and rolling into a rosette adhering with an adhesive circle and topping it off with an extra large rhinestone (I had to get a bit of sparkly in somewhere).  😎

Petal Parade (SAB) – BZB Sketch #2

BZB Sketch 003-b

A couple week ago I attended a local demonstrator gathering (BZB Stampers — we had tons of fun I might add) and we made four make-n-takes using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Petal Parade.  The color combination was outside my usual M-O but I really liked them.  Well……this card was inspired by those make-n-takes and the color combination used.  You might notice that the first BZB Sketch #3 post I used the same stamp set.  This did not even occur to me until I saved the image.  THAT is how different the two cards are  CLICK HERE to see the previous post.  Yes, I used Whisper White for the stamped images AND Very Vanilla for the card base.


  • STAMPS:  Petal Parade (SAB); Just Sayin’
  • PAPER:  Very Vanilla; Basic Black; Core’dination Crumb Cake; Whisper White
  • INK:  Crumb Cake; StaZon-Jet Black
  • MISC.:  Candy Dots~Neutrals; Punch~3/4″ Circle
