Six Mojo Sayings

I think you might have guessed that I love this stamp set! I've used it several times already. It's just so...I don't know...folksy, I guess. It reminds me of a cozy winter sweater or something. It's from a set called Six Sayings and I used it to enter the Mojo Monday Challenge this week, which featured a tag on the front.

I was wanting a cool, monochromatic colour scheme for this project, so I chose Lost Lagoon, Mint Macaron, Pool Party and Silver.
          Lost Lagoon        Mint Macaron          Pool Party                Silver              

  • I layered the cardstock with some Whisper White and some Designer Series Paper from the Home for Christmas Collection as well as some Silver Glimmer Paper.
  • I inked up the stamp using Lost Lagoon, Mint Macaron and Pool Party Stampin' Write Markers. The Lost Lagoon and the Mint Macaron markers you have to purchase as part of the In Colour collections, but the Pool Party is available separately.  The stamp itself is from a Host Set called Six Sayings found in the 2015 Holiday Catalogue. To get this set, you must earn it as part of the Stampin' Rewards program. More about that later.
  • I used the Banner Triple Punch to punch the flag end in both the Whisper White tag and its Lost Lagoon backing. I then used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch to top both panels off with the tag shape and hole.
  • I love the Silver and Gold Cording Trim that is the tie at the top of the tag. I love the way the cord curls so elegantly (sometimes with a little help from some glue or glue dots). After tying the cord in the tag, I also added a couple of Winter Wonderland Embellishments. Seems like they were just made for this project! The tag itself is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
So if you are wanting to earn some free Stampin' Up! products, you could spend $200 on your own, but instead, why not host a private class. It could be a party with some of your friends, where the activity is making some Christmas Cards, or some Christmas decor items! If you don't want to clean and bake, have it at my house! When your friends order products that they will love, you will earn Host Rewards, and if you have it between October 9 and November 9, and have a total of $400 or more (which isn't hard to do), Stampin' Up! will sweeten the pot! They will add 3% more to your rewards, so instead of earning 12% , you'll be earning 15% of your class total in free Stampin' Up! products of your choice, like the Six Sayings set!  Contact me today and we'll set a date for your party!

Stunning - especially that silver strip down the left. It makes it look so festive and really draws the eye towards the other silver elements on the card - the twine and the snow flakes.

Thanks, Kate! I always think a Christmas card should have some glitter to it!
