Scrap Sunday 12

Well, my mojo is still missing. I can usually find it foraging in my scrap stash, but today I was only able to come up with this. The flower is a scrap (grungeboard, Tim Holtz die, Judikins mica gloss) that's been on my desk for a while. It had the button on it already, from its near miss on another project. The card base is another scrap, with a dragonfly cover-a-card background stamp (Impression Obsession). The sentiment (Stampin' Up) is on kraft paper with some black glaze pen written over it and a portion of it in red, slavishly bowing to the rule of 3 for the red. I think the kraft piece is too big, or the sentiment too small. There is also a background stamp of dotted swirls (Impress Rubber Stamps), stamped in Lake Mist on the kraft. On the upside, my five year old really liked it, but turquoise is her favourite colour, so I could be accused of playing to the gallery there.

In other news, I got my two days of all-colouring-all-day at Heather's Stamping Haven. It's that magical time of year when Krista Schneider comes up and teaches colouring techniques with Copics and Tombow markers. We made 17 projects in two days. She does all the assembly and stamping and we do the colouring. I didn't quite finish yesterday - hit the wall at about 4:30. Still, it was a great time and nice to catch up with friends who share a common interest. The only downside is that it's hard to come crashing back to earth. Still, it's better to have stamped and lost than never to have stamped at all. Isn't that how the saying goes???? Hope you've had a good weekend too.


  1. Great card from scraps...would never have known!
    I like the hightlighted word in red...balances out with the red button. The background on the kraft and the faux stitching bring it all together. I would not change anything!

  2. awwwwwwwww better to have stamped and lost awwwwwwwwwwww lol



    Well what do you mean your mojo's gone walkabout? This is fab! LOVE the colours and the highlighted area especially works for me.

  3. Please stop fretting. Your mojo is working away inside. All kinds of things are happening. Go do something fun. Relax. Let it come on its own. Genius can't be forced! I'm sorry I couldn't get up to work with Krista. I'm glad you had fun. I can't wait to see the avalanche of stuff when your mojo wakes up from her restorative nap, stretches out, and starts to work. - Nimmy

  4. Love the colors in this design--I gotta try this layout! 17 projects in 2 days??? OH MYLAAANTA!!! And, yes, I agree: "better to have stamped & lost than never to have stamped at all!" I got a good chuckle out of that one--thanks for brightening my day! :)
