Get yer Mojo ON!

Ahhh... Mojo Smiley from I LOVE it when a new sketch comes out!!
HOW.......SWEEET!!!!!! Smiley from

Here's the Sketch:

And, Here's my card:

Details how to make it:
~ Emboss the trio snowflake image from Serene Snowflakes set featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog on Night of Navy Cardstock using Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder along with a Heat Tool (If you click on the photo, you can see the details a little better)
TIP: Use the Powder Pal tray for ease in putting your powder back into the container
~ Stamp tree images from Lovely as a Tree stamp set using Black Stazon onto Glossy Cardstock
~ Generously ink brayer 1/2 with Bordering Blue and the other 1/2 with Regal Rose
TIP: The Glossy Cardstock is BEST for using the brayer for the lovely skyline
~ Roll off the first layer of ink on scrap paper to avoid getting WAY too much ink in the skyline. Then rolling back and forth over the skyline, blend both colors slightly in the middle.
~ Cut Main focal image using Circle Scissor Plus and Basic Black background just a tad larger
~ Distress edges of Basic Black circle using the Cutter kit
~ Punch out 2 snowflakes using our newwww Jumbo Snowflake punch! Punch one from glossy cardstock and one from velumn cardstock. Adhere them together using a Mini Glue dot.
~ Add White Satin ribbon and White taffeta ribbon across the front of the Navy Cardstock
~ and.... nowwww... for the WHITE BRADS:

Notice those cute tiny white brads?... I colored them...

YEP... i did...
Here's how:
Caution... you CAN burn yourself doing this if your not careful!

You can use any type of metal brad... just make sure you use tweezers to do this!!
~ Heat up the brad using the Heating Tool
~ You only need to hold it in the heat for about 15 seconds.

~ Dip in any color embossing powder

~ And remove
~ The heat from the brad will warm up the embossing powder.
~ IF you need to, reheat it, you can always put it back under the heating tool

Pretty gosh darn CUTE!!! huh?

  3. This is an awesome card! Love how you brayered the sky area! TFS!

  4. Super cute I am brayerly challenged, but I guess there's hope now that there are written instructions for me. Gonna have to try it!

  5. WOW - this is gorgeous!Lovely winter scene and great idea with the brads. I'd recently bought a brayer - now to use it :)
