MOJO315 & Merry Monday - Best of Christmas

Another week at Mojo Monday, MOJO315 designed by Julee Tilman which I normally post on Sunday, but got it done earlier to join Merry Monday#79 challenge over at Always Playing with Paper by Lesley Croghan. What a great way to get a jump start again on my Christmas cards. I've been wanting to play for quite awhile now and figured to join 2 challenges in one. 

Here is my card based on this cute sketch:
When the Best of Christmas stamp set came out, it was on my order right away along with other items from the Holiday Catalog.

For the Merry Monday challenge: Snowflakes and Gray color came from the DSP called: Winter Frost Specialty. For the blue, I used Island Indigo ink and cardstock plus 1/2" Soft Sky Seam Binding Ribbon. Added some silver using Foil Sheets from the Holiday Catalog. I think that covers it all.

Don't want to forget, the button is from the Very Vintage Designer collection and added some dazzling details to give it some glitter effect. Ornament was punched out using the matching Christmas Ornament Punch and of course Stampin Dimensionals were used to pop up the ornament.

MOJO314 - Thank-You with Flower Shop

Another week at Mojo Monday, MOJO314 designed by the talented Julee Tilman and for me it's my Sunday when I get a chance to create and post my MOJO for the week. Since it's the first Monday of the month, it's also contest week and a chance to win a Verve stamp set of your choice, so out come the paper and stamps to create a new card based on this cute sketch.

Here is my card below:
I've had this beautiful DSP paper, Venetian Romance hidden and now finally got a chance to have some fun with it. So many color combinations went through my head since it has several terrific colors you can combine with and finally decided on Pistachio Pudding and Island Indigo.

Love this Stylish Stripes embossing folder from the holiday catalog for adding some texture to the background.
This sentiment comes from the Best of Greetings and was stamped using Early Espresso along with the die cut from the new Circle Card Thinlits. For matting the sentiment, the Decorative Label Punch came in very handy and perfect size for it. Added some 3/4" Chevron Ribbon in Calypso Coral. 

I just had to pull out this cute stamp set: Flower Shop and add one flower to this card along with Stampin Dimensional under it to pop it up. Actually, the entire card has tons of Dimensionals underneath each layer starting from the mat base.

Also, used Calypso Coral marker to color some of the areas in the flower and to finish the center, Dazzling Details were added to get it some glitter and shine. What do you think of today's card?  If you would like to join the fun, click here to go directly to the challenge.
