Mojo Monday 175

It's Mojo Monday! Love the sketch today - and I made a card with no stamping on it! I broke out the new Bliss papers...yes, the ones I said I wasn't too sure about...until I saw them in person. I should know better by now. The paper is gorgeous in person!

I sanded all the Desert Sand Cardstock, and inked all the B&Ts in Desert Sand ink. Then I made one of the new puffy scallop flowers I'm obsessed with - you're gonna see a bunch of these in my next few posts.

I'm working on a video on how to make them, but they are so sweet and easy! You stack up scalloped punches and secure them with a Bigger Brad in the center. Scrunch up each layer until you've squished the whole flower, then un-squish it a bit to make it resemble a little carnation. Voila! Sometimes I'll re-squish it a bit flatter with an acrylic block...or an open stamp pad to add some color distressing. The new 2" scallop punch is just one of my favorite new things!

Finally, I grabbed some printed satin ribbon from my stash and added the sentiment line, highlighted that with a double row of Opaques pearls. I trimmed a butterfly out of one of the Bliss B&Ts and popped that up with a bit of Bitty Sparkles to highlight the body. So much fun! now you go out and make up the sketch - thank you Mojo Monday!

Absolutely gorgeous! I love how your flower turned out. I am also in love with those flowers and just made a couple this past weekend.
