Mojo forever...if only...right? Some days the ol' mojo is with you and some days not! LOL!
I've made this card for a few challenges:
ColorQ#170: choosing colors from a previous ColorQ Challenge...I chose challenge #124 - Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Cool Caribbean, Very Vanilla and White
Splitcoast Stampers TLC#411 The Best of 2012 - to use a favorite technique from the last year of challenges...had to go with distressed edges from the TLC#379, as it's one of faves for sure!
I started with a Very Vanilla card base in the standard 4.25" X 5.5". On top of that...a piece of designer paper that's been distressed, inked and then stamped with the cute little heart flowers from Verve. Next comes a long rectangle in a coordinating designer paper, again, distressed and inked and this time...backed with one of my favorite dies from Verve...Pennant Trim.
Another smaller long rectangle in yet another designer paper, distressed and inked followed by a Spellbinders Labels 22 die cut. It's been topped with a punched circle that's been distressed. I stamped several more of the images from the Verve No Matter What set in Cool Caribbean, then added the sentiment in Real Red over top.
Some hand-dyed crinkled seam binding, some Turkey Red seam binding and a little brad for the bow. A little felt heart that's been covered with Stickles and then finally, more Stickles on the little heart flowers in the lower right corner.
Here's what I used:
Paper: SU! Very Vanilla, Real Red and My Mind's Eye Lucky in Love
Ink: SU! Real Red and Cool Caribbean
Stamps: Verve No Matter What
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, Spellbinders Labels 22 nesties, Verve Pennant Trim A Cut Above Die, 2" circle punch, retired SU! brad, Xmas Red Stickles, Turkey Red Hug Snug Seam Binding, Chalk White Hug Snug Seam Binding, left over felt heart from another project, dimensionals, craft mat, gloves, Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Stains, heat gun, Becca's Peg Bow Maker, distressing tool, ATG and sponges
Hope you are having a marvelous Monday!
