Mojo Monday 276


I am trying to get caught up on my I am posting a second one today.

I wanted to make another Birthday card using this sketch but I had a difficult time with this one. I kept flipping it over and over until I settled on "upside down" which is really not upside.  Any which way works great!
Here is my version...

Can you believe this was another stamp without ink?  I took care of it all messed up now! lol

thank you for stopping

Mojo Monday 275

Time to post my cards to follow along with Mojo Monday.

and here is my version...

I am very disappointed.  I ran out of Stamping Up Crystal Effects so I used something similar that I bought at the store awhile ago.  I am at the tale end of it and I am disappointed at how yellow it turned after it dried.  
Needless to say....I will not be using up the end of that bottle on is sitting in the trash.

Have a wonderful day!

Bright Birthday!

I like this card because it has such nice bright colors!  Perfect for a Birthday card.  It was easy to do and a great way to use up scraps.    The Birthday stamp came from Fiskars  Birthday Cheer set.  The candle stamp was from Spellbinders Shapeabilities which included all the stamps as well.  It fit perfectly over the "I".  I used pop-ups to pop it up higher than the Birthday word.  

I love making the birthday cards...something my box of cards was sadly lacking!

Birthday Glitter

I came across a couple of dies that I had not used before so I put them to work...along with some ink and glitter!  What good is a birthday card without all that sparkling glitter!

Birthday Chalkboard Card

Here is a card I made recently using the Chalkboard Method.  I was amazed at how easy it was!  
It starts out with stamping with versamark on black cardstock and sprinkle white embossing over the top....tap off extra and heat it with the heat gun.  
Next you will make the "chalk dust" on your chalkboard.  Using a papertowel...tap it onto a white inkpad and rub the papertowel on the black cardstock until you have the desired effect.  Be careful to not hit your words as they may rub off. 
 It is that easy!

Give this easy method a will be pleasantly surprised!

Have a great day!

Happy New Year! Mojo Monday #274

Well, here it is...2013.  What happened to 2012?  
I do know that 2012 in most ways, was the best year I have had in a long time (health-wise).  So... my New Years Resolution for 2013 is to continue working on being healthy and have another good year!  
Another resolution is follow Mojo Monday blog and participate in the sketch challenges for the entire year.  That will give me an additional 52 cards created on top of what I normally do and it will keep me blogging.   If you want to follow along as this link--Mojo Monday.

First Challenge of the year actually starting on December 31st at Mojo Monday Blog.
1st Sketch
Here is my take on the card sketch!

Alos, yesterday I wanted to make a Thank you card for a Christmas Gift I got from a friend....a cover for my laptop.  Love it!!  To make the snow fall, I used a toothbrush and very wet paint....a trick I learned many many years ago from my oil painting teacher.  All you have to do is take white paint that is not thick..rub the toothbrush in the paint.....raise the brush up above the card with the bristles facing the your thumb along the bristles and the paint will flick off the brush and fall onto the card.

Well, that is it for now.  Until next time....
Thank you stopping by.  Happy New Years!!!
