Thankful Mojo


It's Mojo time!  For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you know that Mojo Monday is one of my favorite online sketch challenges.  Here is this week's sketch:

  • To create the fanciful frame I used to dress up my sentiment, just take another look at the Top Note Die...see it?  I simply ran it through my big shot, and then trimmed off the top and bottom with my paper trimmer.
  • The stamped background image comes from the Fresh Cuts set.  I "rocked and rolled" it by first inking my stamp in Crushed Curry ink, and then rolling the edges of the stamp in the Dusty Durange ink pad.  I stamped first on scrap paper and then onto my paper so that it has a lighter color. Helpful Hint: Stamping on scrap paper before you stamp on your paper (without re-inking the stamp) to get a lighter image is called "Stamping Off"
  • Are you loving rouched ribbon as much as I am??  I cut a strip of 1/2" Soft Suede card stock, got it nice and sticky with sticky strip, and then adhered my gathered ribbon to the card stock bit by bit.
  • Those extra large scallops are extra easy to make when you use your 1-3/8" circle punch!  I just punched out circles and adhered to my paper next to each other to create the same look as a large scallop punch.
