MOJO 200

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Well yesterday, after a long day of travel, I made it back home from my vacation (although my luggage decided it was having a grand time in Philadelphia and stayed there overnight)!  Today I slept late, ran some errands then decided I had avoided my stamp room for too long.  It's been a while since I've held a stamp and cardstock and everything else that goes along with making a card in my hands and I'm a little nervous that my card-mojo has deserted me.  To get me back in the swing of things, I thought making a card for the latest MOJO sketch would be a good thing.  Maybe the MOJO could inspire my mojo!

The sketch had me optimistic.  A nice blend of circles and squares, a little ribbon, a vertical layer with somethng interesting going on.  I was ready to get to work.

I really wanted to use some of the new In Colors so I looked at the Berry Blossoms dp and let those colors be my guide.  Among others, that dp uses Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Early Espresso, which is what I used here.  I stamped three different sizes of the flower in Calypso Coral (stamping off the middle layer so it would be a little lighter and coloring the smaller layer with markers to get the Early Espresso center).  Then I oh-so carefully cut those flowers out.  They were a little tricky to cut, but my trusty snips did the job wonderfully!

Welome home Jen! Your mojo certainly hasn't deserted you (even if your luggage has!) The flower was so worth the time!
