Mojo Monday # 227 and # 228


I did it!! I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch AND the scripture for this weeks Word Art Wednesday/Stampin Sister's in Christ!!! YAY!! I am caught up until tomorrow.LOL Credits for the papers are the same as the card below. I did use some Cuddlebug embossing folders on this one and some Recollections pearls. I used a corner punch from Fiskars and decorative cutting scissors too.Christy cut the bracket out on the cuttlebug for me and I used some Tim Holtz's distressing ink....Vintage Photo around the edges and also just on the raised parts of the embossing. Now to clean up the big mess I made while hurrying to finish these.LOL ;) Scroll down to see last weeks Mojo Monday card......



Okay..I am a day late and a dollar short.LOL Actually..this is week before last's Mojo Monday. I used a bit of my artistic license and cut out a cluster that was on one of the pages in the DCWV's Heirloom Stack of papers.Used a corner or two from another two pages from the same stack and this is what I ended up with.Even the tag is from this stack.The Sentiment is done by using Studio G's clear stamp and Christy's embossing powder. My first try at using the heat gun.Can you tell?:) The pearl swirl is from Recollections and the Amber gems are Studio 18. From Michael's Craft store.
The link to Mojo Monday's card blog is in my list on the right side of this window.Just scroll down.:)
