Oh, Hello - Mojo Monday #281

Hey Stampers,

Happy Friday !! I am working tomorrow, but even though I don't have a real "weekend" off, there is always something special about Fridays, isn't there ?? I was off yesterday, so i got to do some fun stamping projects !! I am trying to do some more challenges, so my card today was inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday sketch !! I really like this fun layout ... won't you play along too !? I decided to use my Oh, Hello stamp set and the Tea For Two DSP; both from the Spring Catalogue. I haven't got the chance to play with these two items nearly enough yet ! I like how my card turned out though !! What do you think !?!


Cute right ?? Here is the original sketch from Mojo Monday that I used as inspiration ... It was designed by one of my FAV EVER bloggers, Mary Fish !!


Its a beautiful clean and simple sketch, really easy to use !! I used my 2-1/2" Circle Punch to crop out 3 circles, all from the Tea For Two DSP. I stuck to a color combo of Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, So Saffron and Very Vanilla for this card, so I chose the Calypso Coral polka dots and Lucky Limeade diamonds patterns for 2 of my DSP's, and I also used the newspaper print pattern, so I could stamp on it. I took the sweet rose stamp, and inked it up with my Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade markers and stamped 2 flowers on it. Looks great ! I just love the look of stamping images on printed paper like that !! Next I took a scrap of Very Vanilla and stamped the big zig-zag oval stamp in So Saffron. The "Oh Hello" sentiment in Early Espresso was stamped on top of that and then punched out with the 1-3/4" Circle. I also embossed a 1-3/4" Circle of Lucky Limeade with the Honeycomb embossing folder. A couple of DSP Small Heart punches fit in those little hexagons perfectly !

My main Very Vanilla layer was stamped with the stitched chevron stamp in Early Espresso ink. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line these this image up, its not necessary but I just couldn't get my eyes to work right to line it up manually LOL. I then arranged all of my circles onto it, using dimensionals to adhere the "oh hello" circle and one of the Small Hearts. Some 3/8" So Saffron Taffeta Ribbon was the perfect touch to complete the sketch, the stamps and papers I used just screamed out for a bow !! Hahaha. Then I adhered my layer onto a Lucky Limeade car base. I really think this card turned out nicely ! And the Oh Hello sentiment lends itself to so many different occasions, just change the sentiment on the inside. Great for a birthday ... thinking of you ... thank you ... lots of things !! 

I hope you liked my card today !! Why don't you join us over on the Mojo Monday challenge !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
