Finding My Mojo

Happy Palm Sunday!

Lately I have been in a funk with my crafting mojo. I am hoping that I am not alone when I say this, I see soooooo much inspiration on Instagram and say oh I should do that but then doubt myself and never get to it.

Yesterday I was inspired by @kreativekymona on Instagram so I finally made myself go in my craft room and create several cards. I usually just create the backgrounds but this time forced myself to finish all 8 cards.

Kymona had chosen four colors but I decided to omit one.

I started off with some Neenah Solar White and heat embossed some Hero Arts white embossing powder, I used the crosses from Simon Says Stamp Rejoice Stamp set. I then started with Tim Holtz Abandoned Coral, Fossilized Amber and Cracked Pistachio. I started off light but got a little heavy handed and ended up with a bold look for one card and I forced myself to make a light one.

I then took two other stencils from Simon Says Stamp – Mosaic Heart and Screened Leaves (I think the leaves look like Easter Eggs). For the bold cross background I used the Simon Says Stamp Easter Die and cut out a piece out of the colored background then cut several more from a honey colored cardstock and stacked them all together to give it some dimension. For the other cards I just used more stamp images from SSS Rejoice Stamp set and heat embossed it.

I hope you enjoy the cards! I am hoping to be at a craft fair this Tuesday if I can get off of my 9-5 job. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment below. Have a lovely week!
