It's Mojo Monday!


It's Monday, and that means it is time to do a Mojo sketch! This card was derived from sketch 79 (below), and features the new Bright Delights Rub-on's (113887).

The Chocolate Chip Owl and coordinating dots were first rubbed onto Whisper White, and layered onto Summer Sun. These cute trendy trees are from the set called- what else? - Trendy Trees (113258). The trunk was inked in Chocolate Chip and, using a stamp-a-majig, was stamped onto Kiwi Kiss three times. The 'foliage' was inked in Old Olive and, again using a stamp-a-majig, was stamped precisely onto the branches. It was then layered onto a piece of Chocolate Chip that had been punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. TIP: to create the eyelet look, I simply used a handheld punch and punched the centers of each scallop.

A piece of Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon tie the Owl and Trees together.

The sentiment is also a Rub-on from Bright Delights. "Thank you" was split up onto a 1" circle of Summer Sun, and layered onto a 1 1/4" circle of Chocolate Chip. TIP: Making the circles was so easy with my Circle Scissor Plus (112530) and Glass Cutting Mat (112531). A little Dotto Adhesive is recommended to hold the card stock in place while cutting.

The backdrop to this card is Tangerine Tango, which was dry embossed using my Big Shot and the large dot Texturz Plate (6 textures are available in each set!!). This was adhered to a base of Whisper White card stock.

Love how you shared that you punched the little circles to make the extra cool eyelet scallop border. You are knocking my sock off artistically. Hugs, Mary
