My Mojo Monday #274

Super Kid card by Wendy Kessler

Trophy card by Wendy Kessler

Star card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Superhero Workshop on the Go Kit (retired), Believe Paper Packet (retired), Black Baker’s Twine, Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Black ink, and Black Button Brads.  Mojo Monday #274

With the start of a new year, I decided to do some cleaning in my scrapbook room.  It’s really amazing what you can find sometimes!  I found these embellishments that I had made and hadn’t used yet.  Then I saw the Mojo Monday sketch and thought I would just use them up right away instead of stashing them away!  For that last card, I needed some more color than the scraps I was working with and couldn’t find (or don’t have any more) of the Superhero papers.  You will never guess where that tiny piece of Sky-colored star paper came from!….the Believe Christmas paper!!  I just love Close to My Heart’s double-sided paper for reasons like this.  It was just what I was looking for!

 

Stamp Sunday #50: Pirouette


B1409 Pirouette

Pirouette Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart unless noted: Pirouette stamp set, Twilight ink, Slate Satin Polkadot Ribbon, Avonlea Paper Packet, Slate Epoxy Bubbles (exclusive to the Avonlea Cardmaking Workshop on the Go Kit), and Silver Fox Smooch.  Freshly Made Sketch #66

Well, it is the 50th and final segment of my Stamp Sunday series for 2012.  It has been fun using so many different stamp sets throughout the year and also a challenge at times.  I tried out my now Smooch paints on this card (a Christmas gift to myself!)  They are easy to use and I like the coverage.  Maybe they will help me use up some of that bare chipboard!
My new focus for 2013 is to use a ton of sketches (I love them!) and participate in some challenge like this one at Freshly Made Sketches.  It is one of my favorite new sites that I haven’t had the time to explore.  I am also going to work at using up my stash with my scrapbook pages and there will be home decor and other projects too.  I hope you will continue to visit throughout the new year and I will share as much as I can create!
