This card was inspired by the PPA20 challenge. This week we were encouraged to use the color combo of Crushed Curry, Soft Suede and Old Olive. Not a combo I would automatically go to but it worked for this card. The stamp set is new from the upcoming Occasions Mini and it's called Vintage Vogue. The Occasions Mini will be available on January 4th, so if you like this card and would love to own your own set of Vintage Vogue stamps just click the catalog on the side bar and it'll bring you to my on-line store.

Window Sheets Card

I made this card a while ago and forgot to post it. Sympathy cards are good to have on hand, you never know when you'll need one.

Bermuda Bay Christmas

Here's a card using the new shimmer paint, Frosted White. The shimmer paint was sprayed on using a little rubbing alcohol mixed with the paint in a bottle. Very easy to do and the results are pretty, though it is hard to see in the photo. You must take my word for it. The paper is textured Bermuda Bay and textured Brocade Blue. Inks used are Taken with Teal and Night of Navy. The stamps are Serene Snowflakes and the words are from Christ is Born.

Thanksgiving Easel Card

I found this easel card at SplitCoast and thought I'd try it. We made it last month at my Make-N-Take and it was a huge hit. I love the simple gold embossing and how elegant the card looks. I mailed one out today to my sister in South Carolina and I hope she likes it. Sending cards at Thanksgiving is something I'm trying to do more of because I want people to know how thankful I am for being in my life.
Have a blessed day!

Latte Love in Fall!

This is one of the cards we made Monday night at my Make-N-Take. I used the sketch from this weeks MoJo 109 challenge.
The Font of You stamp set is so easy to use and one that I haven't used too much lately. The mug is stamped in Pumpkin Pie then using a Blender Pen we took off the "steam" and the "latte" after that we just filled them in with the Soft Suede marker. To create the "table" you use a post-it note to mask off the top of the card stock and dip a sponge in Chocolate Chip ink and there you go! The card stock used is Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry textured.

Shimmer Ornament MoJo 105

WOW! It's been a while since I last had me some MoJo! I've had this Delightful Decorations stamp set for a while along with the new Shimmer Paint and have finally used them. It's hard to see the pretty shimmer on the ornament and the vanilla circles, but believe me its there. I used the spray bottle technique with alcohol to add the shimmer. Very easy, just put a little alcohol and a few drops of your choice paint, shake it up and then spray! I think I'll do all my Christmas cards with it because it's so pretty in real life.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a blessed day,
paper: Very Vanilla, Pale Plum textured, Rich Razzle Berry textured, Soft Suede textured, Always Artichoke textured
ink: Ruby Red, Always Artichoke
accessories: Frost White shimmer paint, Gold elastic cord, Merry & Bright rub-ons

This was my first attempt with the brayer. I love how the card came out and the colors are so soothing together. We made this at last months Make-N-Take and it was so popular that we'll be doing another brayed card this month. Unfortunately, I had to make more of these cards because we had two funerals in a 2 weeks span. I guess that's how it goes sometimes,
For this card I used:
stamps: Autumn Days, Thoughts & Prayers
paper: Whisper White, Soft Suede textured, Razzle Berry
ink: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
accessories: brayer, brads, sponging

Skull MoJo 96

It's Monday again! Time flies in the summer! This is a card I made for my niece who is at camp this week. My kids were there for the first two weeks in July. They loved it and can't wait to go back next year. Christian camping is one of the most rewarding and tiring weeks you can spend during your summer, but so worth it! My husband and I worked the first week, he taught Bible classes and I taught Arts & Crafts. We were so blessed! Good weather and lots of fun...
Have a blessed day! Enjoy the Son!

It's Hip to be Square!

Here is my take on kerinstamps sketch challenge this week. Still trying to use up retiring paper! This is Candy Lane DSP along with the So Saffron ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration bundle. The balloon and greeting are from Crazy For Cupcakes stamp set and the "happy birthday" is from "And Many Mower" stamp set.
Have a blessed day everyone!

Monday, June 8, 2009


For the MoJo challenge this week I used the Font Of You stamp set and the Baroque Motif set. The Rose Red paper went well with the retiring Raspberry Tart DSP. I'm trying to use up some of the retiring paper but its not easy, way too much paper in stock! Just need more room for all the new stuff, my order should be coming soon!
Thanks for looking at my MoJo card this week, may God bless you!

Father's Day MoJo!


                                                                                           I'm going to miss these InColors!  I love the Pacific Point and the TangerineTango...but the new colors are just as fabulous!  Can't wait to get my hands on them.  For this week's MoJo challenge I used the "And Many Mower" set from the Occasions Mini.  The golfer is a cute old man and I think he's adorable.  I did use the sentiments a little differently than they're intended to be used, but I still think it worked for this card.  Thanks for stopping by, May God bless you today! : )

Cheep Talk!!

I just got this set in and it's one of my favorites!  I love the birds and all the sayings you get with it.  For this weeks MoJo 86 Challenge I thought "Cheep Talk" would be the perfect stamp set to use.  I stamped right on the DSP from the "Bella Rose" paper pack.  I stamped the branch in Chocolate Chip ink then using my Blender Pen I "wiped" off the ink from the leaves then using the Always Artichoke marker I colored the leaves.  When you stamp it onto the paper I looks fantastic!  The birds were inked in Ballet Blue then cut out I added some Dazzling Diamonds on the wings and a dimensional for an added pop!  The rest of the card is Chocolate Chip cs, Pink Pirouette cs and Regal Rose ink for the flowers.  That's it!  Have a wonderful Tuesday, May God bless you all!

Inspiration, God's Way

These are a few of the over 100 Thank You gifts for the CT Ladies Day I made.  The theme for the day was "Singing In The Rain".  The scripture on the back of each favor was from Isaiah 43, 
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior..."
I was so encouraged by everything, the singing, lessons, skits, prayers and just seeing God working through all the "storms and rainy" times in each of our lives and knowing He is covering us with His "umbrella" was so uplifting!  Learning how to "sing in the rain" is one of the hardest things but one of God's blessings because only after the rain do we experience His beauty!  I love the song by Mercy Me, "Bring The Rain", part of the lyrics are,
"Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings your glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You Jesus, 
Bring the Rain"
At the end of the day we all sang that song and I could not help but think, ok God, bring the rain, bring the rain...
God is good, all the time!

Thanks! MoJo84

Wow! 2 Cards in ONE day!  I guess the MoJo is really flying.  Font of You is a beautiful set with so many options.   This card and the colors just make me feel happy looking at it.  I started with a Whisper White card base then added Tempting Turquoise and some of Apricot Appeal DSP from the Level 1 Hostess benefits.  Lovely Lilac was used for the Scallop Circle and as a base for the main image.  Green Galore was used as the vase with embossing to give it some shine and dimension.  Perfect Plum ink is the flowers and some Green Galore brads finishes off this card.  Oh, Whisper White grosgrain ribbon with a bow to the side.  Thanks for looking, btw, the Son is still shining here!!


Color Inspiration #50!  I just love a challenge!  This week the challenge at KWERNER was to use the colors above with NO additional colors and you HAD to use all the colors in your card.  Well, I accomplished the challenge but I struggled to get them to work for me!  I made this card with someone in mind who needs some encourgement and a pick- me-up.  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a blessed day and I pray the Son is shinning where you are! 
My colors in this card are:
Tempting Turquouise, Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
My Stamps are:

I made this card with a friend  in mind.  Do you have a friend who knows just what to say and says it at the right time?  Well, I have that kind of friend.  She has the Light of The Lord in her and she shines it brightly.  We get together to pray each week and it is one day I really look forward to.  I know that God is there for me, but sometimes we need a hand to hold and a shoulder to cry on.  I pray everyone who stops by my blog will be blessed in their lives with such a friend.  May God bless you today!
Oh yeah,  these are the colors in the card:
Certainly Celery, Lavendar Lace, Whisper White, Bella Rose dsp.  Blooming with Love stamp set and Rub-On from "Loop To Loop"

Another Mother's Day Card

Color Inspiration #47 at  KWERNERDESIGN.COM  I just fell in love with this color combo and wanted to give it a try.  From my previous post today you'll know that I just got the "Blooming With Love" stamp set.  I also picked up the new Parisian Breeze Specialty paper.  This new paper is a heavier weight and also it's textured.  The paper comes double sided so you have a lot of choices.  I tried the Crystal Effects on the wheel barrow but I think I could have done more coats, maybe next time.  Thanks for coming over, have a blessed day!
I just went to post my link and well....it's closed!  I missed the deadline...oh well, it was still fun!!! I'll try the challenge for next week-lol!!

Happy Mother's Day MoJo81

My MoJo for this week is the "Blooming With Love" stamp set.  I love the delicate lines of each stamp and coloring them in was such fun.  I used:
stamps:  Blooming With Love
paper:  Very Vanilla cs, Bella Rose dsp, Pretty In Pink cs
ink:  Chocolate Chip, various markers
accessories:  Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, blender pen, paper piercing, dimensionals

Thank you for stopping by, have a blessed day!

Happiness is...MoJo80

Happy April Fools!  
 MoJo on Wednesday! 
 This is my take on the sketch.  I wanted to use "happy" colors and the Apricot Appeal was the perfect choice.  I love the Level 1 paper pack because you get a good variety of patterned paper.  The vase was stamped on Whisper White with Perfect Plum ink then cut out and Crystal Effects were applied.  A dimensional popped it up and some Dazzling Diamonds added a little sparkle to the flowers.  The rest of the recipe is:
Stamps:  Font of You
Paper:  Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Whisper White cs, Appricot Appeal DSP
Ink: Perfect Plum
Accessories:  Markers, Dazzling Diamonds, Whisper White ribbon, Punches, Crystal Effects
Thanks for stopping by, Have a blessed day!

A Whole Latte Love !! MOJO 79

Here's my MoJo for this week.  I did not do the challenge last week for various reasons.  Mostly I was just too busy!  I combined the MoJo with this weeks Color Challenge 211 at SplitCoast, again.  I love the combo of Pretty In Pink, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze.  It's called Pretty Kiwi Breeze's !!  I love it!!  So you already know my colors and I also use the Bella Rose DSP.  The stamp is the new Font Of You set which is becoming one of my favorites.  I stamped the coffee,  sorry Latte cup in Chocolate Chip and Versa Mark then used clear embossing powder to give it some shine and texture.  I finished it off with Whisper White ribbon and the sentiment.  What do you think?  Good enough to drink?  Thanks for stopping by, have a blessed day!
