My Mojo 103 Delightful and Delicious


This is my Mojo card for this week's challenge.  I love how it turned out, in person, it did not photograph well, but I assure you, the colours are so rich in real life!  I wanted warm and rich for this great coffee themed stamp set from Verve, and my insoiration came from Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love.  Such a great collection, really.  So to make this card, I started by stamping the coffee cups with a SU craft chocolate chip ink on a delightful sheet of the saffron coloured flowers in the CC Earth Love collection and let them dry and cut them out.  I also stamped the sentiment from the same set in the craft ink and sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heated it up.  I used a Spellbinders long rectangular scalloped die to cut it out and edges with a Copic marker (the sketch end, so as not to ruin the finish on the other finer end).  The card base is on so saffron card stock that I stamped an Impression Obsession "Cover a Card" bg stamp with the craft chocolate chip ink.  The floral dp is CC and I backed these with really rust.  The ribbon is from some packaging and the border punches are from EK Success (the flat ones).  The ribbon is a nice chocolate chip grosgrain and I added 3 light brown gems, but they are quite difficult to see. (again, sorry for the photo)  Well, that's it for now.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the day.   Cheers ~ Chriss
