Exercising a rusty mojo

Written by: iwona    16 Comments

I’ve been spending some much needed quality time with the family (now enlarged by a super adorable kitty! yay!) and I’m loving every minute. Frankly, between everything that being a SAHM to two littles and an active crafter entails, there’s been precious little time for me to truly relax. I forgot how sweet it is to just hang out with the fam for most of the day, not looking at the clock constantly, worrying about stuff that needs to be done. I’ll need to start thinking about that ‘stuff’ again pretty soon now, but I’m taking another day off before it happens 🙂
I’d pop in my craft room every now and then, for a bit of an inky time but I’m finding it quite hard to get back on track. I half-forced myself to make some super last-minute Christmas cards (which I tried to keep in a general Winter Holidays spirit, rather than Christmas), because I received a very late order from SSS, right before the Holidays, of some long-awaited WPlus9 stamps and dies that I just couldn’t justify having put down for a year.
I’m talking about Woodland Wreaths (sadly the dies were out of stock everywhere I looked), Heartfelt Holiday, Silver Bells (with coordinating dies) and Under The Mistletoe dies. I wanted to show you guys, the cards I whipped up, but I don’t want to spend any more precious time fiddling on the computer, so I hope you don’t mind me skipping up the supply lists.

Some Copic colouring on this first one.

Patterned papers from the Penny Black Madison pad, Glossy Accents on the stamped and die cut bells.

A dash of patterned paper, from Basic Grey Fact pad.

Collage style, almost like a little scrapbook. I combined some leftover DP, washi tape, some stickers, twine, flair, sequins…

Lastly, almost a one-layer if it wasn’t for a patterned paper mat (Pink Paislee Portfolio, Stupendous 12×12 paper). Stamping directly on DP, plus a bit of stitching.

Thanks for stopping by, I’ll have a post up on the 1st for sure but I’ll try to pop in once more before. Be sweet! xx

  1. Stunning cards, I loved the WPlus9 stamps for my Christmas cards this year. Love the bird you used with your wreath. Enjoy your family time, it’s precious. Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing you pop in again ! X

  2. Your cards are always just stunning! These are all beautiful! I always enjoy seeing what you’ve created. Glad that you’ve had some time to enjoy hanging out with your family. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season! 🙂

  3. All of these are gorgeous, but that scrappy style one steals the show for me. I love how your ‘rusty’ mojo produces more fantastic cards in one sitting than I can muster in several days. 😛

  4. Ha rusty MOJO….don’t think so!! My FAV is the first…love the combo of colors and images!! The partridge is fabulous too!
