One Sheet Wonder with Love Blossoms

I watched Mary from Cardz TV doing this One Sheet Wonder with a 6″x6″ piece of paper. Super excited to find these 6×6″ One Sheet Wonders because CTMH has these samples swatches and they are 6×6″ sheets! What a great repurposing for these. When putting the cards together, I decided to add the stamping of the flowers on the card base and tags. There was too much white space for me.

The tags come from CTMH :

Here’s a FB Live I did showing you how to make 5 cards with a 6×6″ scrap:

Here’s my diagram I drew out since I’m not skilled at making cutting diagrams.

Here’s 2nd set completed!

Do you have a wild child?

Do you have a wild child?

Most of us have that one person who is a “wild child” even if they are not a child!  It’s that person who has a free spirit or an adrenaline junkie.  They march to their own drummer.  Or they are your children who seem to have no understanding of the danger zones of life!  This layout is perfect for this.  You can use it for your inner wild child even.

With the Jack Workshop Your Way (WYW) and the workshop directions from me (which you receive free with a $25.00 purchase of the workshop supplies from my shopping website). I used some different twine that I had left over in my stash, the gray and white twine.

The half circles are made from the circle thin cuts that are cut in half.   You can use the circles to layer and create different background designs as well.  They are a staple in your scrapbooking arsenal just so you can have different shapes to use.


Use thin and regular 3D foam tape to pop up the different elements and letters so you get different layers.  I’m going to use this with SG, who’s favorite color is blue.  I’ll add in Pacficia for some matting.  Most of the picture sizes have flip flaps available for use.  You all know I love my flip flaps.   You’ll need the following supplies to create this layout:

Each Full ‘Jack’ Workshop Kit will require the following Consumable products:

Stuck On You

The cactus cards are showing up all over so I’m glad that CTMH gave us a cute cactus stamp set C1643 Stuck On You, which included the sentiment “Stuck On You”.  stuck on you stamp set c

This cute set has a set of thin dies to make life easier so you don’t have to fussy cut the images out:

stuck on you dies

I encourage you to look at the three stamp sets with dies.  We have sold out of the dies for the C1641 Springtime Wishes already and it’s been discontinued!  Anyway,  I created this card:

FMS223 Card wm

using the Freshly Made Sketches 223:

FMS Final 223-001

I used our watercolor pencils to color and shade the cactus and pot.  I think I prefer watercolor pencils when it comes to coloring in images where I want more control.

RS (5)

After you color in the image, take a wet brush and go over your coloring.  It will smooth out the lines.

RS (3)

I did a basic white front panel by using the stitched rectangle dies from Simon Stamps.

RS (4)

I used Fundamentals Basics and took the chocolate shiny side and smoothie for the strips behind the stitched circle  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Black on a white strip which is dove-tailed.   Thanks for stopping by!

Get Stuck on Stampaganza!!’s easy to get stuck on the Stampaganza deal for buying 2 sets to get 1 set free (lowest is always the free one)!  Here’s a cute cactus card about being stuck on you with C1643 Stuck On You,  stamp set and dies that will retire in April 2016!!

FMS223 Card wm


The card was inspired by this sketch:

FMS Final 223-001


I used our watercolor pencils to color in the stamps.  I took a watercolor brush and lightly went over the coloring with a damp brush to blend the colors.

Here are the stamps and dies:

Isn’t this cutest little cactus stamp set?  I love all the sayings in it.   If you buy 3 C – sized stamp sets, you’ll get one of them free with Stampaganza!!  Easy to see how you can get stuck on Stampaganza!!

You can get S1602 Balloon Animals for $17.95 USD or $5.00 USD with a $50.00 order! Here’s another card featuring Balloon Animals:

MM430 SIP 30 wm

I used two challenges to inspire the creation of the card:


Here I made the background from random stamping the dots stamps on the cardstock:

I fussy cut the balloon animals out and used 3D foam tape to create dimension.  I did the stitching with a gold marker.

Fun with Dizzy Circles

This is another card I created and did not post!

MM421 SIP20 wm

It uses a sketch and color challenge:

Mojo421 SIP-Color-Challenge-20-800


I used the stamp set C1610 Dizzy Circles to make the flower.  This set reminds me of the spiral graph toy that was so popular when I was kid!

C1610 Dizzy circlesI used the leaves and the saying from other stamp sets. The chocolate base is from the Basic Fundamental Papers.  I love the shininess of this side. The other side is white and chocolate so it’s two-sided adding versatility.

mm421 sip 20 wm a

I had some gold striped vellum in my stash.  I used the Shimmer Trim and Gold sequins as accents.

mm421 sip20 c wm


Early this week, I did a post which showed the same sketch and base for the card and used different stamps.  The posts show how easy it is to take sketches and change them up.

RS201 Sketch Challenge

Here’s a card I created with RS201 sketch.  After 30 inches of snow, I’m ready for Spring to come!  This is also a sneak peak for the March SOM.

RS201 Mar SOM Card 1 wm


Here’s the sketch:



It’s an interesting sketch in that you have a few different layers.  It balances nicely.  Sketches are nice to spark your creativity  and I’m grateful for RS201.  I’ll post more next month on this card and the techniques used.  Have a great day!

Technique Tuesday – Masking!

Here’s a card I made using the Masking Technique along with some challenges. I did this a while back but forgot to post it.  Here’s the card:

MM421 wm

Here are the challenges:

SIP-Color-Challenge-20-800 Mojo421

The base of the card is made from using the Chocolate paper from the Fundamental Basic Paper pack.  Here is where I used the masking technique to make the leaves look like they come out from behind the rose:

MM421 c wm


On a side note, I used a gold pen to do some dots in the center of the rose and liquid glass along the white highlights to make them pop a bit.  Here are some directions for masking are here.  You can download the picture on masking and reference when you need to do it.

Some more fun with this card was using the vellum with gold stripes from my stash along with some shimmer trim and gold sequins!

In the middle of our snow storm here in PA:




FMS Final 220-001

Fussy cut out the animals and used the Wink Of Stella pen to make their eyes glimmer.

A few glitter gems from the enameled and glitter combinations – blue and green to add just a touch of bling to a baby boy card.
