Woohoo!!! My New Design is Here! And it's Mojo Monday!

What do you think of the new design? I LOVE it!!! Many thanks go out to Veronica McCollum at VKDesignCo for creating this awesome design! I'm so excited to have my site look a bit more polished and fun!

Today just keeps getting better because it is Monday. Which means that my favorite sketch was released this morning-the Mojo sketch!

I used a variety of new products for this card including Thoroughly Modern DSP, Wood Sheets, and the Chic Boutique Stamp Set.

Here's a rundown for the card:
  • The card started with a Soft Suede base with a layer of Kraft Thoroughly Modern DSP.
  • A 1" piece of striped DSP was added next, in keeping with the sketch.
  • Using my Big Shot, I "texturized" a piece of Soft Suede using the new Perfect Details Texturz plate. It was then matted onto Bermuda Bay card stock.
  • A fine polka dotted Rose Red print was matted onto another piece of Bermuda Bay.
  • I grabbed my Big Shot again and the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. I first ran a Soft Suede print through on a medium sized butterfly.
  • Next I ran a Wood Sheet (new!) through over one of the small butterflies. This went through so smoothly-I was amazed!
  • I used my Bermuda Bay SU marker to stain the wood. The photo does not do this justice! It looks so cool!
  • A Rose Red felt flower was attached to the center using a silver brad.
  • Rose Red double-stitched ribbon was wrapped around the top layers of the card (adhered behind the Kraft piece).
  • The frame from Chic Boutique was inked up in Bermuda Bay and stamped onto Very Vanilla. Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig, I was able to center the sentiment (inked in Rose Red).

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new look! I really like the Holly Golightly looking character (you) in the top bar. And I really like the skyline for the titles. I'm going to have to consider changing mine as soon as the new name goes into effect. Thanks for all of your inspirations!
