Getting my mojo on…..

I find that the design process in any crafting project can be the most time consuming part and as busy as my life can get, time is a precious commodity.  Sometimes its easy to lose your stamping mojo and get creative block.  That is why I am loving card challenges!  They can give your project a little jump start and save you tons of time.  Even if you don’t want to enter the current challenge, the archives on challenge blogs are a great place to find inspiration and get you going if you are stumped.  This is my creation based on this weeks  Mojo Monday Sketch.

I used a little creative freedom interpreting the sketch by swapping out the circles for die cuts using my Apothecary Accents Framelits and using one of my favorites, Linen Thread, instead of ribbon.  Hope you like!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #53

Well, I’ve decided to throw my hat into the ring in some popular card challenges.  I’ve enjoyed following Freshly Made Sketches for a while, now and decided to join in there first.  I love their appreciation for clean design.  Here is this weeks sketch:

I decided to try something new with my paper daisies for this one.  I used my brayer to ink summer starfruit onto them and then primrose petals to stamp the background.  I love that I can customize the daisies to fit my project.  So here is what I came up with:
