Got my Moxie Fab weekend Mojo on...

Oh my! Did I get my stamping Mojo back this weekend! If you have been following me on Facebook, you know I gave up coffee this week. And do I ever LOVE coffee...so this was a pretty tough week. So this weekend I holed up in my Stamp Pad with a nice cuppa Earl Grey to bust into my new Dotty for You Paper packet. Who needs coffee when you've got paper this adorable? 9 projects later I came up for air and a fun meeting with my team today. I'll share two cards today, plus the rest this week including a 2 page layout that I'm bursting to post...but I gotta wait for the Dotty For You Blog Hop! Be there...or be square!  First up is my take on this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I know, I know - I got it posted too late to add it to the linky, but I still like my little sparkly star card, so here it is.

I used one of the corrugated shapes that I sponged with Grey Wool ink and filled in the ridges with Silver Glitter Glitz. All the patterned papers, the large circle, and the 100% awesome sentiment are from the Dotty Paper Packet. That's right - I did a bunch of fussy cutting with these papers,as one side is typically a brighter multi-colored print and the other is a monochromatic polka dot...just what I love best!

I sprinkled on a scattering of colored and bitty sparkles to further highlight my bling-y star focal point. A stretch of Grey Wool baker's twine finished off my mojo card. I just LOVE me a bit 'o stripey baker's twine!


Besides getting my Mojo on this weekend, I also visited the Moxie Fab World, where this week's Tuesday Trigger is Three Little Birds. Aren't they just so sweet? I loved the grey with the blue and green, and I knew there was a stripey print in the Dotty for You packet that was just about these colors.

I've also been following a new blog for me called Retro Sketches, so I decided to jump into this adorable Trigger using their newest adorable sketch. I love how they do their sketches on this coffee stained graph paper thing - it so looks like it belongs on my stamp table...ok, maybe not the coffee rings anymore, but I can dream, right?


So here's my take on the Retro Sketch #7 and Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger. I inked everything with Black ink, and all the papers are still from that Dotty For You paper packet. I stamped my birds using (sneak peek) the June Stamp of the Month - aren't they just the sweetest? I paper pieced the biggest bird using Dotty papers and Sunset CS, but did a combo of inking and markering on the smaller birds to get their beaks and legs detailed.

Each birdie got an adorable little sparkle eye. I popped up the sentiment with 3-D foam tape - I just love a cute pun! I'm linking this card up to The Hybrid Chick: Card Caravan Challenge: Spring because this is spring in Oregon to me. Grey skies, birds singing, (mostly green) color starting to come back in...gotta love Springtime in the PacNW!




I'm linking this to the Get Your Craft On Party over at Today's Creative Blog - check it out for lots of amazing crafty ideas!  I hope you'll check back here tomorrow for the Dotty for You Blog Hop with gobs of Dotty Fun! I'll be posting the rest of my weekend projects this week too.
