Last week I read about a new challenge called The Great Mojo Comeback, and since my mojo has been MIA for waaaay too long, I'm in! This week's challenge is to use a fabby layout by the super-talented Shari Carroll as a sketch for our cards:
I broke out my old and dusty pack of Basic Grey Stella Ruby papers to make the vertical strips. At the end, I went all crazy and popped the top strip up on dimensionals.
I must have played with letters to fit on the die-cut piece FOR-EVAH. I finally die-cut the 'i' and 'u' (dies from MFT) from a piece of Stella Ruby paper, and the Heart (Nesties) from a different piece of Stella Ruby paper. Yeah, at this rate it's definitely SABLE. (look it up in the left side bar)
I wanted to use buttons for the yellow elements on Shari's sketch, but most of my buttons are shiny or not quite the right color, so, as is my nature, I made my own buttons from the Stella Ruby papers. Perfect match! I actually punched the bottom layers out of Kraft and just the top layers out of the red. I'm trying to ensure the SABLE factor, here. :)
I dismembered some brads and glued them (legless) into the holes of the buttons with some Glossy Accents.
I really like how this one turned out. It's muted. It's not too froo-froo. I think a guy could even send or receive this one. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Leslie this is so pretty! I love the colors you chose and that embossed piece gives it great texture. I also had a good giggle at all your acronyms, my fav is UFO :)ReplyDelete
This one turned out very pretty. I like the embossed piece, I never think of doing that. My mojo has taken a major hit lately, so I think I'll go over and check out that site.ReplyDelete
Kudos on your rendition of the sketch. A good one to reach for when you need a masculine one, you're right! *smile*ReplyDelete
Leslie I love this! I love that you used Stella Ruby paper on it too...it's one of my all time favorites and I hoard it like mad!:) Thanks so much for playing along with us! :)ReplyDelete
oh i ♥LOVE♥ those papers anyway, but i'm almost shocked at how AMAZINGLY FAB they look on bright white... with a bright white accent... totally FAB*U*LOUS, missus! (great take on the sketch, as well!)ReplyDelete
