Mojo Monday & RCC75 & more


A couple days ago I was meeting a friend to pick up my Lia Sophia jewellery (love that stuff.. and now they have kids jewellery - yikes~).  I wanted to make sure I had my card ready but of course, I had none.  I checked out the Mojo Monday blog and loved the sketch - in fact, I had some many ideas flowing in my brain I just had to settle with one...

... I am noticing a lot of sparkle and glitter in my cards these days. :) This is for their weekly challenge, which is anounced every Monday! You still have plenty of time to check out this weeks!

 Materials used (All Stampin' Up): cherry cobbler & silver glimmer paper, stocking builder punch, perfect polka dots embossing folder, cherry cobbler & whisper white cardstock and cherry cobbler baker's twine.
 
Here's the sketch if you want to play along!
 And I didn't stop there... I needed to make a couple Christmas tags and QUICK! So, I grabbed my new holiday framelits from Stampin' Up and cut out a couple gingerbread men - to re-create the same stocking punch tag I had made last week.

Here's the first gingerbread man tag I did and the corresponding one from the previous week. These are made using the Stampin Up two tag Bigz die... I made about twenty different tags but these are my favorite.  It turns out I am becoming a minimalist. Who knew!

The supplies used for these are the holiday framelits, basic pearls, Christmas greetings stamp set, Sparkly & Bright stamp set, early espresso paper and crumb cake cardstock, as well as cherry cobbler ink.  On the stocking tag, the difference is that I used the stocking builder punch and some glimemr paper.  The stocking is made some scrap paper but that looks like Fancy Pants Saint Nick collection to me.


 
After doing up those two tags, I realized I shouldn't waste my negatives so I grabbed the champagne glimmer paper and crumb cake (kraft) paper, as well as some baker's twine to whip this up super fast. I added some pearls for some buttons and voila!
My other negative was quite a bit bigger so I decided to make it into a card similar to the above. But this time I decided to use my cherry cobbler colored cardstock and glimmer paper.. only thing was I had in mind that I wanted to use this for the Ribbon Carousel challenge # RCC75!! I love these challenges and Ribbon Carousel has a great prize.  You have until the end of the month to check it out!
 
Finally, I did one more tag using the holiday framelit - I plopped that right on the gift... I love how the sparkle just makes everything more festive!!!
Supplies Used (All Stampin Up): Holiday Framelits (2012 holiday catalog), Merry Mini Punch pack (2012 holiday catalog), basic whinestones, early espresso baker's twine, champagne glimmer paper (2012 holiday catalog), silver glimmer paper, and the 23/8" scallop punch.

 
That's it for now!! Cheers!
