Mojo 94


This week I decided to use some newly purchased Asian stamps from Inkadinkadoo to create a thank you card with the sketch from Mojo Monday. I started by pulling out some DP by Kaisercraft that I thought would work with my Asian theme. I decided to use the bamboo stamp from the set to enhance the DP by embossing it with gold. Then I used a CB embossing folder on the red cardstock piece and the dots CB embossing folder on the white background piece for texture. I stamped my image on white and then stamped again on red so I could cut and paper piece the red hairpiece decoration and the dress. I colored some mettalic gold on the hairpins and on the pieced dress and then embossed it with clear embossing powder, cut it out and popped it on the mettalic gold paper from my stash. I embossed the sentiment and punched it out and then backed it with red and black punched circles. The gold trim is from Hobby Lobby. Finally, I clear embossed more of my DP and then punched out some flowers for embellishments. I added some small pearls to the centers of the flowers and there you have it!

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it too!

  5. Emily this is GORGEOUS! I love Asian and your card is just so beautiful. I really like the paper piecing and how you gold embossed the bamboo on top of the DP. Why don't I ever think to do things like that? I haven't done an Asian card for a long time. You've inspired me to dig out some of my stamps.
