Mojo Valentine


Man, it seems like forever that I have had a chance to play along with one of Julee's Mojo sketches! Today, I took an hour or so to make this Valentine card. Here is the sketch, it's a fun one :-)


I used one of the newly released sets called Simple Valentine -what a sweet little set. I colored the little hearts with Copic markers and then covered them in Crystal Effects. I busted out my BRAND new Basic Grey Bittersweet DP and coordinating brads. Be still my heart! I can't gush enough about Basic Grey -it seems like there is rarely a paper pack that I don't LOVE! The little flowers are from Prima Flowers Part Deux cinnamon bottle.

Here is a close up of the sentiment panel. I used my CB flowers die cut for the base, then layered it with a punched heart, topped with a Word Window punch. You can't see it in the pictue, but I covered the pink punched heart with the new Shimmerz Blingz color, Pixie Dust!! Love this bottle, the "glitter/shimmer" is more intense than Angel Wings and has a slight silverish tone.


Here are some of the supplies I used for this card. Do you see those small containers I put my brads in? I got them from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts, and they are PERFECT for putting specialty brads in. I get the Basic Grey painted and glazed brads and once you open the package you have no way to store them!

  6. that's a lovely card, I like the way you've put a flower in the middle of the brads. I always think too linearly and don't think of things like this!
