A Very Unseasonal Mojo

Another Monday - which means Mojo Monday! I had an interesting sketch to work with today, very different from my usual style. I flipped it and changed it a bit, but pretty well preserved the original sketch.

At a stamping demonstrator meeting last week, I won the Fruits & Flowers stamp set as well as the Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper. Probably not a set or paper I would have bought myself, BUT, I'm glad I won it. Because I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It's bright, colorful and fun! How on Earth could I have thought that I wouldn't like these products? Of course, having new products, I wanted to try them out.

Why do I say it's 'unseasonal'? I think fall is finally here. It's raining, cool, and the leaves are changing color and falling. So bright colors, flowers and fruits aren't exactly 'in season'. But I also think we need to switch things up once in a while from fall, Hallowe\en and Christmas projects.

Tips & Tricks:

*Love the sparkly fruits & flowers? Another trick I learned at the demo meeting. I covered the images with Crystal Effects and then sprinkled it VERY VERY lightly with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  You want to add just a smidge of shimmer to images. Gives your images a lovely glossy, shimmery look!
*Don't you love how easy Stampin' Up! makes color coordination? I simply used the colors in the DSP - Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White.
*Although I cut out all the images and adhered them with Stampin' Dimensionals, you can bypass the cutting and stamp directly on the Whisper White card stock.
*I'm still loving the Ruffled In Color Ribbon - isn't it just lovely?
