Stampin' Up! - Mojo Monday 279

Well I finally got my Mojo Monday Challenge entry completed last night. Poor hubby is crippled with back pain so I am having to stay home and help him today. It does mean I have 5 minutes to update my blog.

Quite a few Stampin' Up! demo's have been using a lot of Pool Party the last week or so and it helped me decide on a colour scheme for my entry.

Here is the Sketch we needed to follow:
And here is my entry:

I started by matting Comfort Cafe DSP on Pool Party card stock. I then cut a square of Whisper White and sponged the edges with Pool Party ink. I embossed the strip of Pool Party card stock with the Chevron embossing folder and added a piece of Whisper White, cut with the Large Scallop Edgelit and embossed with the corresponding Delicate Design embossing folder. I sponged the raised elements with Pool Party too! It just adds a little definition.


The scallop oval was sponged on the edges with Island Indigo and the sentiment was from Petite Pairs, stamped in Island Indigo ink. The pretty little rose is from the new Spring Summer Catalogue - Flower Trim. I sponged the rose with Pool Party just to give it a little accent of colour and used a mini silver brad to attach 2 Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon 'leaves'. 
I hope you like it and will join myself and some more of the Pinkies for our Blog Hop on Saturday!
I am hoping to enter a couple more challenges this week so please pop back!

  1. Hi Paula
    Thought I'd pop over to say directly how much I like this card. Those little fabric roses are pretty, I'm looking forward to getting them in my next order, especially as it looks like you can dye them in any colour, and I like the chevron embosser.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! You can use your markers, sponge dauber, dab them straight on the ink pad... depends how much colour you want to add. I must admit, we got some in a share the pinkies arranged - now I just have to get a full pack. xxx


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.

I love to hear from you.
