... and the mojo still goes :)

Mambo Love You Much
This card is a whisper white card base. The first layer is
melon mambo. The SU Soft Swirls background stamp is stamped
in melon mambo ink on the top half of the card front.
The pink pirouette layer is embossed with the swiss dot cuttlebug
folder, and the bottom edge was punched with SU's scallop border punch.
The sentiment from SU's Well Scripted stamp set is stamped in melon mambo,
then punched out with the SU scallop circle punch. I used the piercing
tool around the scallops. I stamped versamark directly onto the bottom edge
of the card front, and onto the sentiment scallop circle, then embossed
them with iridescent ice embossing powder.
I stagger-layered a scallop circle in melon mambo behind the bottom of
the sentiment to separate it from the pink pirouette stip more.
Pink pirouette taffeta ribbon tied around the cardstock layer finished it off.
Crocheted Thinking of You
This card uses the SU Bella Rose DP, riding hood red,
and whisper white cardstock. The sentiment from SU's Warmest Regards
stamp set is stamped in riding hood red ink, punched with the SU punch, and has
riding hood red ink sponged around the edges. Riding hood red taffeta
ribbon looks so great with this paper pack! I used crocheted flowers
from SU's accents & elements for the finishing touch.
Pomegranate For You
I am using up some DP from my stash.
This card uses SU DP, purely pomegranate, and
whisper white cardstocks. Purely pomegranate stitched
ribbon is across the bottom, and regal rose grosgain is across
the top layer.
I stamped the sentiment from SU's One of a Kind stamp set
in purely pomegranate ink, punched it with the SU punch,
then used stampin sponges around the edges with the same ink.
Bermuda Bay Wishes
I ran across some odds and ends of DP while organizing.
I used the DP on bermuda bay cardstock with the top of the front embossed
with the swiss dot cuttlebug folder. I used a metallic cardstock for layering.
I stamped the flower from SU's Delight in Life stamp set,
using the rose red and bermuda bay markers for ink.
I punched the image out with the 1" circle punch, then
layered it onto rose red punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch,
then bermuda bay punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch,
and finally the metallic cardstock punched with the SU scallop circle punch.
I adhered it with dimensionals and added some non-SU fibers from behind it.
The sentiment is from SU's Heard From the Heart stamp set,
and stamped with gold encore ink.
I added bermuda bay dot ribbon and hodgepodge hardware to finish it off.
Cart of Blooms
This is for this week's Teapot Tuesday challenge.
My card base and basket are daffodil delight cardstock.
I made the basket using SU's round tab punch for the bottom
and the SU large oval and scallop oval punches for the handle.
I added some flower brads from my stash.
We were supposed to use a flower cart image on our card.
However, I don't have one. So I made my own. Luckily, I ran across a
pre-made close to cocoa card front a friend gave me using an
embossing folder (I'm not sure which it is though).
I made the wheel with the Creative Memories circle maker.
I covered the wheel, as well as some strips for the sides of the flower cart,
with versamark, then embossed them with copper embossing powder.
I used a stampin' sponge in daffodil delight ink on the whisper white
cardstock for a sunshine effect. I stamped the butterfly from SU's
Because of You stamp set in lavender lace in the corner, and used
the matching marker for it's trail behind it.
I stamped the flower trio image from SU's One of a Kind
stamp set in lavender lace, daffodil delight, melon mambo, only orange, and
gable green inks, then punched them out using SU's
flower trio punch. The main sentiment is also from SU's
Blooming with Happiness stamp set, and the basket's sentiment
is from SU's Fancy Flexible Phrases stamp set.
I hope it can bring some blooming smiles Betty's way.
