So today I took a break from Valentines – well actually I did a Valentine project this morning but I’ll be posting that one on Wednesday – make sure to come back.  But this afternoon I worked on a non-Valentine’s project.  I also tried another sketch challenge – called Mojo Monday.  I see this mentioned all the time in our yahoo groups where we share our projects but I haven’t tried it before.  So this is my first Mojo Monday sketch attempt….here is the sketch

and here is my card…. instead of the brads I used a greeting in that spot.

I used four new Stampin’ Up! products: the Garden from the Heart stamp set, Satin Ribbon, and the Scallop Trim Border Punch, and the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack.  All of these are available to order beginning tomorrow – January 5th.

Here is a complete list of Stampin’ Up! products that I used for this card:

  • Garden from the Heart stamp set (Occasions Mini Catalog 2010)
  • Thank You Kindly stamp set
  • Taken with Teal card stock
  • So Saffron card stock
  • Pumpkin Pie card stock
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Chocolate Chip ink
  • Black StazOn ink
  • Watercolor Wonder Crayons: Earth Elements, Rich Regals
  • Aqua painter
  • Big Shot die cut machine
  • Scallop Circle #2 die
  • Circle Scissor Plus and Glass mat
  • Scallop Trim Border Punch (Sale-A-Bration 2010)
  • Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper stack (Occasions Mini Catalog 2010)
  • Chocolate Chip satin ribbon (Occasions Mini Catalog 2010)
  • Linen Thread
  • Stampin’ Sponge
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals

I’m going to like this new gardening set.  And I do have it in the new Clear-Mount version which worked so nicely on the new Stampin’ Up! Clear blocks.  I cut the white circle first and then stamped the image – it was easy to position on the circle with the Clear-Mount option.  Happy Stampin’!
