Mojo Monday ~ Vintage Newsprint Beautiful Friend

Good Morning Friends!

Well it's club week here at my stampin' pad, so I need to come up with a second project.. I love checking out the challenge sites to see what inspiration I can pull.

What a fun sketch!

This morning's mojo monday sketch has a whole lot of layers, but when using the newsprint DSP from Stampin' Up! it doesn't seem to matter! You get a WHOLE LOT of newsprint in one package and I'm totally lovin it! It's so quick to make an easy card.. I literally crumple it up in a ball multiple times before laying down my layers... So Fun!

This week I used the fun flowers die and the pretty rosettes from the mini catalog for my focal point. The little pearls get lost in the photo.. there are three in the upper right corner, and one tiny one on the "I" in friend.

That would be a funny sentiment.. "There most is an "I" in friend" ~ I stamped the sentiment from the fabulous phrases stamp set, and just loaded the two words side by side on a clear block..

I {heart} the clear mount stamps! looking for the low down on how to help your clear blocks stick better? It's all in how you put them together.. You can check out my tutorial here.. I did it about a year ago.. :D
Here's a close up of my focal point! I'm loving the distressed layers! I stuck the whole piece together with glue dots.. Easy peasy! :D

I hope you have a wonderful week and you have time to stamp4fun!

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton
