Mojo Monday ~ Playing with my new goodies.

It was so fun to go out to the studio and play today. I chose to do the sketch challenge from the mojo monday website.

I got some new goodies from SU.. In the catalog it doesn't list blush blossom, in the new valentines day paper, but it's in there! The new flowers from the designer paper, features flowers that are made from 4 hearts.. so pretty. I cut the designer paper and just layered it.

Also take a look at that cool scallop punch. Honestly, I was ready to return mine. I played with it for hours, then realized, I needed to flip my paper over after doing the corners, to line things up.

I found an AMAZING tutorial on my friend Gretchen Barron's blog on how to get the punches to line up. I looked at the post, then didn't actually READ it. Much to my happiness, when I sat down a read what she wrote, I was easily able to use the new punches.

I'm still not convinced that I love the design, but being able to do it certainly helps. :) You can check out Gretchen's post here. Guess I need some patience?

Well, I had some shimmer paint still in the spray bottle from Christmas and decided that I was going to make the entire face of my card shimmery. I just love the effect (you can see better in the photo below).
It's snowing here. I wanted to take my little one out during school vacation, but the weather outside is just frightful. Guess I will have some time to stamp today! :)

Rubbah hugs,

Great card like the idea of the hearts making the flower. I also like the hint on the border punch I plan to order that when the mini catalog comes out, I heard there was one on it so thinking must be that one. I like it.
