Blog Candy Winner and Mojo Monday Card!

Drum roll please....!

The Blog candy winner from last Wednesday is:

Robin Tarantino

Here is what Robin had to say:

"I really like the medallion background stamp. It can be used in so many different ways!
"

Robin, you have 24 hours to email me with your mailing address and choice of In Color Polka Dot ribbon (Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, or Crushed Curry).

Thanks to everyone who left a comment!

Now onto today's card. It is from Mojo Monday Week 94 (sketch below). This card also features some brand-new products!!! I used the new Chic Boutique stamp set, and Cottage Wall DSP.

Here are some highlights from the card:
  • The Whisper White base started out with layers of Rich Razzleberry and a floral pattern from Cottage Wall.
  • Two strips of Old Olive Textured and Orchid Opulence came next. TIP: These are colors found in the DSP- perfect match!
  • A small scale Cottage Wall pattern came next. TIP: when using multiple DSP prints, using large and small scale patterns will help to achieve balance.
  • This adorable little bird is from Chic Boutique- see the full set below. It was stamped in StazOn and colored in with SU Markers: Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Bordering Blue, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, and Orchid Opulence.
  • Two light purple Circle Rhinestone brads were added next. I used the mat pack and paper piercing tool to line them up perfectly.
  • The sentiment, also from Chic Boutique, was inked up in Rich Razzleberry and stamped onto Whisper White. It was then popped out using a 1 1/4" circle punch and matted with dimensionals onto a 1 3/8" circle of Rich Razzleberry.
  • A small knotted piece of Rich Razzleberry Polka dot grosgrain was added with a glue dot.

I just received my giant order of new SU supplies today (some of these products were included). I can't wait to show you more!
