Hello everyone! I had a very busy day yesterday, it was definitely a Monday. Work was crazy and it didn’t stop when I got home. I hope that you all had a better day. So, I have some more announcements for you today. Stampin’ Up! has just been rolling them out these past few days! Not that it’s a bad thing, after all they are celebrating their 25th Anniversary. First up we have a special promotion that will run all year long, it’s called the Best of 25 Years Stamps. Each month they will release a new stamp set for $14.95 that will include 3 – 5 stamps. There will be some old favorites along with a new stamp in each set and they will be available in Clear Mount only. The first set is called The Best of Birthdays…

As a special incentive to collect the Best of Stamps, starting in February they will be including a collector’s card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014. How cool is that?!

Wow! That’s a lot of cool new product! Now on to today’s post which is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This time around we have a sketch from Carole Burrage…
I had a good idea what I was going to use when I saw the sketch. I have been looking through some magazines for some new color inspiration and I saw one with Rich Razzleberry, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White (that’s not what they called them but that’s what I saw!). The base of my card is Rich Razzleberry Card Stock. For the background on the left side I embossed a piece of Chocolate Chip and Old Olive with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The panel on the right is created using some Whisper White and an image from the Oh, Hello Stamp Set stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment! For the main panel I cut a piece of Whisper White to 2 1/2″ x 3″. I measured in 3/4″ on each side on the 3″ side, top and bottom, and measure down 1 1/4″ on each side of the 2 1/2″ side. I then used my Paper Trimmer to cut the corners off and made a large hexagon. The images are from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set**. The leaves are stamped in Old Olive and the flowers are stamped in Rich Razzleberry and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them in place. They also hold the butterflies from the same set in the same color that I punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and placed on the right panel. Finally, the greeting is from the Vintage Verses Stamp Set** and is stamped in Chocolate Chip. The colors bring to mind the garden and I love the worn look of the images form the Bloomin’ Marvelous Set. I hope that enjoyed all of the announcements and my card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. Thank for stopping by and enjoy your day!
