Mojo Monday 319

Hello all!

I had this card made a couple days ago but got distracted! :)  Only 2 more days until I have a table at the Edmonton Twins and Triplets Christmas Show! 

This card is using the sketch for this week's Mojo Monday.  I've been going in so many directions lately, it's nice to have a sketch to start with.  Half the work is done! 

Those who know me, know I am NUTS about giraffes!  This sketch let me use some of my tons of ribbon and papers...  The card is 5x6.5"  Background paper is Karen Foster Spots, followed by a scrap of upholstery fabric trimmed with my deckle scissors.  The large circle is cut from unknown beige shimmer paper, the smaller giraffe paper is also unknown.  The giraffe sticker is from Karen Foster Wild Things... Too funny!  I really didn't plan to use the same designer, it just happened! :)  I cannot remember who makes the giraffe print ribbon, but the one above it is Maya Arts.

Red + Green + anything Christmasy

I am a day late posting these cards!  Too involved in making more cards to sell at the Edmonton Twins and Triplets show in 10 days!  Eek!  Then I forgot to post... Ooops!  Sorry for the lateness.

This week Priyanka asked us to pick an image to create something Red + Green + anything Christmasy.  So I chose to use one of her free images: Love Me Not.  I coloured the images with my watercolor crayons and a waterbrush.
After colouring, I cut out the image with Spellbinders Labels 20 and hand cut the red velvet mini mat.  The largest green mat is cut out of gold textured paper. (gold just does not photograph well!)  The 5x6.5" card is covered with red shimmer paper I put through my Cuttlebug and the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Mystic folder.  I tucked a gold ribbon behind it before adhering it to the card front.  To finish it off, I added a Making Memories 'Merry Christmas' fabric label.

For my second card, I decided to use Mojo Monday's weekly sketch.  So I am also entering it in this week's challenge.  I used Spellbinders Labels 28 to cut out this coloured image and the mat is red mulberry paper.  The 5x6.5" card was covered with red shimmer card then an layer of green Sizzix cardstock that was run through my Cuttlebug 'Christmas Countdown' embossing folder.  Michaels ribbon is down the right side and top and some poinsettia flower charms someone sent me are the finishing touches.

Hugs to all!  Have a great weekend!
