Another quick Mojo card using CTMH Laughing Lola cardstock. See all the great Mojo cards here

I'm still having my love affair with the July stamp of the month, Sweet Life, I have a stack of these beautifully colored fruits and need to use them up and it fit perfectly with the design this week. I also selected the fruit because in all honesty it needed to be a quick card and these were already colored and fussy cut. :)
The background layers are Laughing Lola patterned paper paired with Twilight on the bottom stamped with Gypsy ink using the chicken wire background stamp. The layers are tied together with a beautiful aqua ribbon.

I cut the background doily circle using the artiste Cricut cartridge on Gypsy cardstock. 
The olive circle is patterned paper that comes specially in the Laughing Lola paper pack. I used a spellbinder circle die to get the right size to fit the fruit.

The sentiment is also from the Sweet Life set, and I decided I didn't need anything more than a matching aqua bow. Thanks for stopping by have a great week!

Mojo305 - Affair

A Chocolate Affair

August 2013

In honor of the new CTMH stamp of the month I've matched up the Mojo#305 sketch with A Chocolate Affair.

I started with a nice chocolate brown on top of the card base, then added rectangles of Avonlea paper. I didn't realize I used the same paper last week...but I do love it, so I guess it's not that surprising!


The Sentiment is stamped with Cocoa ink on a pretty fancy oval die cut using my new CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge!!!!  I set the Cricut at 1-1/2" real dial size. 

I added glitter glue to the Cupcake and fussy cut it, then added some ribbon and viola!

Thanks for looking! See all the wonderful MOJO305 cards at the MOJO MONDAY site!
