MOJO SNOWFLAKES...

TWO POSTS TODAY! Yes, I am behind with my MOJO post, but I just had time to do it last night! Scroll down for the BLOGGERS CHALLENGE post! My 7 yo old sweetie made a card too, but she needs to finish it, so I will add that this weekend some time. It is snowing today, so she is outside playing in the snow on recess!

This week's MOJO Sketch has a contest! The Prize: This is a judged contest, so my two favorite entries will each win their choice of any Verve Stamps set (up to $24)!The winners will be announced on Wednesday, January 14.
Here is my entry... I used my design SNOWFLAKES available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
I stamped the focal image in Brilliant Blue and cut around it adding the Purple Stickles to the pattern.
To make the background on the nestibilities...would you like a picture tutorial? It really was quite fun! I cut out the Labels One die, then I cut a mat out using a smaller Pinking Circle (Nestabilities). I sponged using a sponge dauber with Almost Amethyst (the lightest color of ink I used on this project). Then I cut a little bit larger mat with scrap paper and matted my image, sponging with a different sponge with Brilliant Blue Ink. One I had that completed, I grabbed another sponge and sponged all of the edges of the Labels One Die with Lovely Lilac ink. If you are like me, and want a visual! Let me know!
Here are a few more details:
Stamp Set: Snowflakes by ME!
Cardstock: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Same, Craft White
Accessories: Nestibilities (Labels One, Small Pinking Circles), Big Shot (LOVE THIS!), Branch Punch, BLING Adhesive Gems, Dimensionals, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Snowflake Brads, Rounded Tab Punch
Thank you for looking! Have a fabulous Day!

Sam said...

that's beautiful - wintry yet not Christmassy. I like the way that you have used a snowflake in between the brads (or whatever they are!) I can never think outside the box like that!
