Day 186: Mojo Happy Birthday Card

Tonight I was playing with the new Mojo Monday Sketch.  
I wanted to use my favorite Doodled Designs, but the circle was a bit too small, so I doodled my own bigger circle using a skinny black marker and my shimmer gel pen. I sanded some Sorbet cardstock for the band, and added black stamped stitches using the Zoe WOTG stamp set.
I added a framed sentiment using the August SOTM. Then I topped the card off with some Zoe Assortment buttons and green epoxy dots. Fast, fun, and done! See ya tomorrow!

Day 185: Thanks So Much Card

Yesterday afternoon my friend Sarah came over for a little one-on-one Cricut tutorial. We tried out my Expression and my Explore machines in the hopes of helping her decide which model she'd like to add to her crafting stash. I grabbed a packet of Garden Green cardstock to cut random things with her, since it's long retired and I have a fairly thick stash of that color left. I thought I'd be able to just recycle the cuts...
I was showing Sarah how to cut an oval out of the front of this THANKS SO MUCH card from the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge using Design Space. As you can see, I couldn't toss it. I trimmed it down to fit a 4x4 card, and, using the new sketch from Retrosketches, I whipped up a cute little card in minutes.
 I carefully sanded the cricut cut cardstock with my emery board so I wouldn't mess up the adorable attached sentiment. Then I stamped the sun and clouds using Rain Or Shine. I coated the sun image with Wink of Stella. Then I added the stitch detail using the stitch stamp from the Zoe WOTG. That is one of those stamp images bound to get it's own block and a place of honor on my stamp table. It's small enough to be easily included in my basic on the go kit too! Hooray for stitching with no stitching! That heart is hand-cut from a scrap of coral shimmer trim.
I ran a strip of the coral shimmer trim behind the sentiment along the bottom of the card. I stamped the rainbow from Rain or Shine in Memento Tuxedo Black, then colored it in with a waterbrush and 3 inks: Sorbet, Canary, and Glacier. That got a nice coating of Wink of Stella too.

Thanks for the crafting time, and the inspiration, Sarah!

Day 184: Atlantic Hearts Hello Card

It's Monday, which means it's time for another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge
I had this teensy Hello sticker banner leftover from my Zoe Scrapbook kit pages. So I stamped a Sunshine tag using a bit of the printed zip strip. I love that every page comes with a 1/2" bonus print/element!
I hand trimmed some strips from the Zoe Arrow print paper. Then I added some grey sequins topped with Aqua Dots. I hope you'll hop over to Atlantic Hearts and give this week's sketch a whirl!
