Tall & Skinny Mojo Monday #404 - Spinkles of Life

This is my first entry for Mojo Monday. Mojo Monday is a weekly card sketch challenge which is available to people all over the world. Pretty amazing if you ask me.

This weeks Mojo Monday sketch is a tall and skinny card.

Here is my card based on this sketch.

This stamp set is one of my favourites from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue. What makes it even more special, is that when you buy Sprinkles of Life ($37 AUD), Stampin' Up! will donate $3 AUD to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Crazy Crafters June Blog Hop - Favourite New Product


Welcome to our June Blog Hop.

The new annual Stampin' Up! catalogue 2015-2016 started a few weeks ago so it is time for us to pick a favourite new products. With so many new stamp sets, pretty papers and other fun things to choose from, this was not an easy task. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. Get your wish list ready!

 You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me in the list below. If you get off track at any time, the full line-up below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

One of my latest favourite product is the Expressions Naturals Elements (p. 160). To my surprise my favourite product is an embellishment! These guys are cute little wooden words. Each pack contains 15 pieces, 5 in each of the 3 designs. "Congrats", "Thanks", and "Celebrate". These 3D greetings can pretty much cover most occasions.

This month I have combined the blog hop theme of "Favourite product" with my need to make an engagement card for tonight. I didn't want to make the card too flowery or girlie, but elegant. So I decided to make a centre step card, and use black and white with some sliver.

The side panels are from a new DSP stack called Neutral Colour Collection (p. 144). It is a stack of 40 Sheets of DSP in a range of colours. The colour I choose for this card was silver. It does look a lot like grey in this picture but looks pretty amazing in real life.

To make the embellishment in the centre of the ribbon I used a button from "designer very vintage" (p. 161) and embossed it in silver. I then cut out a circle using the owl builder punch and added a rhinestone. Pretty simple and very different.

The greeting on the front of the card is from the expressions naturals elements, which are actually a wooden colour. I simply heat embossed it in silver to obtain the colour I was after.
