I was sorting through some of my old Stampin' Up paper today and this one grabbed my attention for the Mojo Monday sketch. I don't know the name of it but it is from 2006. The stamp set is Soft As A Feather, stamped in Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake, and Baked Brown Sugar. Naturals button and thin twine to embellish.

I came across this layout in the Spanish SU catalog from last year and really liked it. Had to try it for myself! I used Blushing Bride, Saffron and Whisper White cardstocks. All Dressed Up for dress, Tagtastic, Delicate Doilies and Create A Cupcake for sentiment, new gingham wheel for bottom strip. Added clear buttons, pearls, and ruffled ribbon to embellish.

The shaker window was made using a cello envelope and clear microbeads with some Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled in and then sandwiched between two layers of cardstock that had the ovals cut out on the Big Shot. Whisper White base with Bermuda Bay layer that was stamped with the old Cheesecloth background stamp and then swiped with matching ink.

Poppy inspiration from my garden (last picture). I used Stampin' Up's Pleasant Poppies on Whisper White, colored in markers and shaded with inks. Second stepped up picture is the oval masked off and then embossed with Pool Party powder and En Francais stamp. For the mask paper, I use parchment paper. It is thin enough to get good, flat, even stamp coverage and you can tape it down easily to your work surface without areas missed around the edges. Cardstocks and heavier papers always leave gaps when I try this technique.

I love Stampin' Up's new In Colors coming in the new catalog. (There is also Baked Brown Sugar which is not shown here.) I used the Wildflower Meadow stamp with the colors of Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, and Coastal Cabana. I used various embellishments and sentiments to complete.
