Mojo Monday #109

Hi! It's been awhile since I've done a challenge, so I thought I'd jump back in with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I used one of the new hostess stamp sets from Stampin' Up's Holiday Mini Catalog, Patterned Pines. I stamped the trees in Real Red, sponged Frost White Shimmer Paint then stamped the image. It gives the image a shimmery softer look, hopefully you can see that in the picture.
All SU! Supplies:
Stamp Set: Patterned Pines, Short & Sweet
Ink: Garden Green, Real Red
Paper: Garden Green, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Merry Moments DSP
Other: 1" & 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Frosted White Shimmer Paint, Sponge, Dimensionals, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon

Mini Envelope Album

Hi! Boy it's been awhile since my last post. We just got back from our stamping cruise and thought I'd share one of the projects we did. There was 20 of us stampers that went and we had a fabulous time. The weather was absolutely gorgeous! We never know what the weather's going to do around this time of year so we were really lucky. It's a long weekend getaway, we don't go far but it's still alot of fun. We set sail from Seattle, head up to Canada and stop at Victoria, then onto Nanaimo and back to Seattle.

So, here's one project my upline, Nancy, demonstrated. I just love this little project and it really isn't all that difficult to make. There's a great tutorial over on Inking Addict Designs, click here. Nancy made a few small changes, like making it about half the size but it's pretty much the same as the tutorial. I'll post more projects later. :o)
