It's Mojo Monday!


The weekend just zipped on by, and it's Monday again.  Not such a bad day, the sun was out, work was busy and went pretty quick, and I came home to do a spot of card making.

This weeks Mojo Monday challenge was a fun sketch.

I decided to use the Colour Coach to select my colours as I have been sticking with Brights and the In Colours of late.  The Colour Coach is a fab tool, it makes creating cards with matching colours really simple.  You pick a colour swatch from the pack, and on the back it give you it's monotone colour, plus two colour combinations.  I went for Old Olive as my main colour and teamed it up with Pretty in Pink and Night of Navy.  These are not colours I would have thought to put together myself.

Here's the card I came up with.

I used the little background stamp in Clearly For You to make my own DSP.  I used the Whisper White ink on the Night of Navy card. The sentiment also comes from the Clearly For You stamp set and was cut out using the Word Window punch and popped on the card with a dimensional.  The Whisper White card on the top section was run through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to match the polka dot pattern on the Four Frames stamp that I inked in Pretty in Pink.  I finished the card off with a strip of Old Olive ribbon and a Pretty in Pink button.

The Details: 
Card / Paper - Old Olive / Night of Navy / Whisper White
Stamps / Ink - Clearly For You / Four Frames / Whisper White / Pretty in Pink / Night of Navy
Embellishments - 1/4 inch Grosgrain Old Olive Ribbon / Pretty in Pink Designer Button
Tools - Word Window Punch / Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder / Decorative Label Punch / Colour Coach / Bone Folder / Trimmer / Stampin Scrub & Mist / Stamp-a-ma-jig / Dimensionals / Snail
