Mojo Monday #260

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve participated in any challenges and I’ve really missed it. I didn’t feel like folding laundry this afternoon, so I got crafty instead!

I cut the flowers and decorative square with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart. I used Chocolate cardstock and the Avonlea paper pack as well as our fabulous new burlap ribbon. A few Sparkles and a Bling Gem finish off this quick and easy card. The sentiment is from last year’s convention stamp set, Dreams. Ink colors are Chocolate and Juniper.

See you tomorrow with another creation from this afternoon. Now I need to go fold that laundry……

Happy Crafting!

Artiste in August ~ Day 23

Adeline’s blog is just ahead of mine in the hop, so that is probably where you just came from….keep hopping from link to link until you end up back where you started.

Today’s shape is the milk carton found on page 46 of the Artiste handbook.

I used paper from the retired Stella collection and the National Stamping Month special double stamp set “It’s Your Day” stamped in Lagoon and Sunset ink and Baker’s Twine. I used 3-D foam tape to pop up some of the elements to add dimension. I also used several different shapes from the Artiste cartridge.

Artiste in August ~ Day 21

3 whole weeks of awesome Artiste inspiration….and we are not done yet! You’ve probably come here from Adeline’s blog, which means you are right on track. Keep on hopping from link to link until you get back to where you started.

Today’s shape is the tall box on page 40 of the Artiste handbook. Make sure you use the  0 – ZERO and not the o – OH key….don’t ask how I know to warn you about that Winking smile.

The box is made with the new Clementine paper and Crème Brule cardstock. The ends of the box are trimmed with the zip strip from the paper…..I love those zip strips! I added some flowers and leaves from the Just Blooms Floret Paper Flowers and the new brown and tan Sparkles Assortment. 3-D foam tape adds a little dimension.

Now keep on hopping over to Paisley’s Playhouse to see what Amy has for you today.

Happy Crafting!

Kathy

Day 9 of Artiste in August

Hey there, and welcome back! You should have just come from Adeline’s blog, but if not don’t worry, this is a circular hop. Just keep following the links till you end up where you started.

Today’s cut is the flower top box on page 36 of the handbook. The doily inside is also from Artiste.

DSC07060DSC07064

This one seems more like a card to me, so that’s the direction I went. I used some Dotty For You paper(retired), Just Blooms Flutters, Adhesive Springs, Sparkles and Create a Shade Pearl Paint. The Stamp sets used are #C1511 Love Blooms and #D1455 Blessed (retired)

This folded up really easily. I wasn’t sure how to embellish it, so I just started and this is how it turned out. I usually start out with a plan, but sometimes it’s fun to just jump in and see what happens.

Now, hop over and see what Amy has to offer today.

Happy Crafting,

Kathy

Artiste in August ~ Day 8

OK, I’m back today with the project for the 8th day of our Artiste exploration.

You have probably arrived here from Adeline’s blog, if not don’t worry, it’s a circular blog, so just follow the links till you make your way around to where you started.

Today’s shape is the pie box found on page 70 of the Artiste handbook. This is another one that is super simple to assemble.

I used the Stella paper pack for this one. I added some flowers from page 54 of the handbook.

The leaves are some that I had sitting on my craft desk from a past project. They were cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I love that these two cartridges compliment each other so perfectly, and don’t repeat each other.

The silica gel beads make another appearance today in the flower centers. I just squeezed a puddle of liquid glass into the center of each flower and added the silica gel beads. Then I brushed a little stardust glitz glitter gel to the edges of the flowers.

I used a stylus to emboss vein lines into the leaves and sponged olive ink on to make the veins stand out. I glued the stem down with liquid glass and popped the leaves up with 3D foam tape.

OK, now head over to Amy’s blog…..

Happy Crafting!

It’s still Monday on the west coast….

and as promised, here is my Mojo Monday submission (I did cross my heart after all).

Mondays are crazy fun days at my house. 3 round trip drives to deliver and pick up my 2 older grandsons at school. Today there were 2 trips to the library and one to the grocery store, homework, play time, dinner prep. and getting to spend the evening having dinner with my family all here. Monday night dinner together has become a tradition in recent years and I love all the chaos and love that we share. After everything calmed down tonight I was able to get in my craft room to make this card.
