Mojo Monday ~ Maria



I haven't ordered any of the new D.S.P. from the new Holiday Catalog (that is amazing by the way) yet. So I created some of my own.. I LOVE the new In-Color Bermuda Bay. But is doesn't come in Craft so I used Taken with Teal When you emboss is turns even darker and richer....closer to Bermuda Bay.. The way this pattern paper turned out it reminds me of a patter you might find on China or toile fabric. When you pair it up with the new Soft Suede and Kraft it has such a crisp clean modern feel...
I really enjoyed making this card.. I even used Craft ink.. I love the depth that the craft ink gives.. Plus it's sooo much easier to emboss with.. If you look at just the right angle you can see that I embossed the leafs with clear embossing powder.


(note I used Taken with Teal craft ink not Bremuda Bay the in-colors don't come in Craft ink) Sorry



I have totally forgot to add what movie I have been watching while I have been making my cards.. Weird!

Movie Watched:
"Hitch"

We have so many movies but as I look over and over and try to decide what to watch nothing has been exciting me.. So I went next door and borrowed a few from my BFF Cassie... Next week we are switching to Comcast to cut a few corners... My DH's work said they will not be paying for internet any more... What ever.... Like the healthcare industry is hurting... We all still get sick... So we are switching phone, Direct t.v., and internet to Comcast and we will save $70 plus dollars a month.. Cross your fingers for us... But guess what... I get cable in my studio for no extra cost... YAHOO!! maybe I will get to watch the new and actually know what is happening around me know... We just don't watch a lot of night time t.v. with kids in school we have know idea what is really on.. We have just DVRed things like Food network, Burn Notice and Dancing with the Stars and House. Then watch them when we get a chance.. We just aren't that into the hip and trendy reality show's GASP and AHHH's I know... The more we keep the t.v. off the less distracted the kids get..

Come play with the Mojo gang... and Help Celebrate the 2nd Anniversary.

Thanks for Stopping by:
Hugs

Wow! Girl, you are one talented chica! I adore your recent cards!!! And your kids are adorable. You nearly had me in tears. I'm FREAKING out over the fact that Landon is turning one... it's downhill from here! LOL! It's a good thing we had him or I'd need meds or something with Parker turning five. Haha! Seriously, you are totally awesome and if you ever decide to travel over to Europe you will have to pop over to Morocco for some couscous and mint tea!

Love the card today. I didn't think Bermuda Bay came in Craft? I know you can ink in Versamark then in Bermuda Bay so you can emboss... Just curious. Lovely design.

Kelly thank for pointing out the Taken with Teal error.. I have been making a bunch of cards and then posting them a few days later and got all the recipe twisted in my mack to school brain..

Brooke..

So bad the in-colors don't come in craft... Baby steps I am happy they have the marker added to the list this year..

I absolutely LOVE! this color combination. Taken With Teal is not my favorite color but I adore how it looks with the craft and Soft Suede!

Stunning! I had to laugh after reading your post because I was going to comment on the fabulous dp...but it's really stamped!! I don't have many SU craft inks but you've sold me on the teal if it looks like bermuda :) Love this colour combo...I keep saying that! :) I was also humming and hawing about the leaf stamp...now that's on the list too!
