Mojo Passion

It's been a REALLY long time since I've been able to play along with the mojo makers at the mojo monday blog. I miss playing along with the sketches. It's been a really busy summer.

The minute I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to make a card using the sweet centers stamp set and the coordinating cups that go along with it. In order to make my card work, I flipped the sketch 180 degrees.

I used an embossing folder with my sizzix big shot to do the dry embossing, then sponged some eggplant ink right on top and all the way around the sides. I cut my focal point to 2 1/4 x 3 1/4" punched a hole for the cup.

These new cups that will be available from your Stampin' Up! demonstrator on September 1st. They coordinate with the 1 3/4" circle punch from stampin up and the movers and shapers die, which I have already played with here. Movers and shapers have many shapes the are slightly larger than the punches for easy layering! So much fun!
