Always on my mind...

Today's card was made using Mojo Monday Sketch 87 (below). I love the softness of Tea Party DSP. I used two patterns from the set, along with Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, and So Saffron (perfect matches!).

The Whisper White card base was covered with a layer of textured Certainly Celery. TIP: I stocked up big time on 12x12 textured card stock using the May Scrapbook promotion Buy 3 Get 1 FREE!

A 3x3 Saffron floral (also from Tea Party) was matted onto a slightly larger square of So Saffron and adhered to the card first. The mostly green print from Tea Party was given a So Saffron scalloped border and adhered next. Using my Circle Scissors Plus and Glass Cutting Mat, I cut two circles. One out of Whisper White, and another out of So Saffron. TIP: I moved the dial to a slightly larger circle for the So Saffron.

I inked up the bird, from Always, in Pretty in Pink and stamped it onto the white circle. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I lined up the bird again and stamped it using Versamark. The image was then embossed with Irridescent Ice EP, and a heat tool.

The sentiment, also from Always, was inked in Black StazOn and stamped onto a rectangle of Whisper White. It was matted in Pretty in Pink and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I just received the SU Little Leaves Sizzlet in the mail yesterday and had to use it on this project! I ran the die through my Big Shot with Pretty in Pink textured card stock. More dimensionals were used to pop it off the card. TIP: I cut up the hexagons to make smaller shapes that would not show off the sides. Using a glue dot, I adhered a Fleurette Flower, but I didn't like that the center was Riding Hood Red (for obvious reasons!). So I found a gemstone sticker (non SU) to cover the center.

Great little idea about covering up the center of the flower if you don't like that color! Something to tuck into my memory for next time!
