Back At It (Mojo 94)

So after a long hiatius from cardmaking I'm back, and I've clearly lost all skill when it comes to making cards. Here's my attempt at Mojo Monday 94

I decided to use my new Pink Cat Studios Sweet Treats stamps. I thought I would do a good job. I picked out lovely co-ordinated paper that I thought screamed Soda Fountain/Ice Cream store. I had some awesome ribbon that I had been waiting to use for a year or so but never found the occassion. Then I actually got to work on the stamping and colouring. Yeah I suck. Well my black ink sucks that's for sure. Its the one colour I think I haven't bought in the last two weeks, and well I should have. It started bleeding like mad the second I put the crystal effects on the Sundae glass. I also only have cruddy Martha Stewart markers to colour with. So not the best stamped images for a card. Colouring and cutting out stamped images is also difficult when you have a 3 year old tugging at your arm, bumping into you, demanding everything under the sun, you know typical 3 year old stuff. Someday I will find the time to make a card without the kiddies around. It might actually turn out good.

Anyway here it is.

Paper: The Paper Co: Peppermint & Tinted Dawn

Making Memories: Pink Splatter, Pink Small Dots, Raspberry Small Dots

Stamps: Pink Cat Studios: Sweet Treats

Ribbon: Fruit Punch

(ETA: GAH why is blogger sucking so much. It won't let me change font sizes, and it won't let me post the mojo sketch)


  1. Lexy, this is positively scrumptious! Excellent color choices and pretty images.

  2. I think it looks great!

    Try Blak Staz On for ink - it won't run.

  3. Your sweets do look yummy!!! I really like Momento Tuxedo Black and staz on. Great job with the mojo sketch.

    It's a good life!
