Thank You!

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!

I had a bit of stampy time so I pulled out the gorgeous new Rosy Posey set from Taylored Expressions, which I hadn't used during previews, to create a card!

The layout is this week's Mojo Monday Sketch, MOJO223.  It's been SO long since I've done a Mojo Sketch...I'd forgotten how much I LOVE them!  I started by stamping three roses, one large and two small, in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock, and then cut them out using the Rosy Posey Taylored Dies.  If you are unfamiliar with how Taylored Dies work, you can check out this info HERE.

I then colored them with Copic Markers and added touches of shimmer with my Buttermilk Spica Glitter Pen.  All of the patterned paper is Sunshine from My Minds Eye, and I stitched all the layers with my Janome Sew Mini.  The two circle elements were cut with both the Layering Doily Medium Taylored Die and the Layering Doily Small Taylored Die.  LOVE these new dies.  I then added circles cut with Circle Nestabilities over them out of patterned paper.  

For the bottom of the plaid panel, I cut grey cardstock with the Fly Your Frame 3 Taylored Die and then just trimmed the sides to be the same size as the panel.  LOVING the elegant look of this!  I then added three leaves cut out of green cardstock with the leaf dies from the Rosy Posey Taylored Dies.  I LOVE the embossed veins on this...here is a closeup so you can see how fabulous these cut!

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:

    Very pretty. I saw this sketch earlier in the week and thought it had promise, but maybe not for sketch-challenged me. But seeing your take on it, I might be able to try it myself after all.


  7. Wow, Jodi, awesome looking card. I love that heart doily and your colors.

  8. I am drooling over this card.....I had SUCH a hard time with this sketch but you rocked it my friend.
