My Mojo Has Taken A Vacation

My Mojo has taken a vacation. I've sat down at my craft desk several times this week and just look at everything, then get up and walk away. I'm just not able to focus and create anything. I've tried several of my favorite challenges and still no luck. I was looking back through some of my older cards for some inspiration and found this one I never posted. So I thought I would share it with you.

I stamped the present on a separate piece of cardstock and cut it out by hand. I have the die but I didn't want any white space around the edges. I attached the present with my dots for just a touch of dimension. When I stamped the bow I stamped it once then stamped it again right away without adding any additional ink.

Well I'm off to watch the Olympics. I hope you all have a wonderful evening. With any luck I'll be back over the weekend with something new.

  1. Great C&S design, love the vertical stamping. I've got this set on my stamp table right now to make a birthday card this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Deanna well I am glad you found this one because it is such a fabulous CAS card. It inspires me, I am kind of with you just struggling with my mojo too. When my mojo takes a break I go to your blog for inspiration. Lets blame the heat and the business of summer. ;)

  3. So sorry to hear about your mojo. I'm sure it is not too far away--it is so enormous, that it can't hide for long. You will find it soon. This is a great card--love the vertical design, and how you've got that gift taking center stage.

  4. Very pretty CAS card. Love how the sentimenst are positioned. I can't believe you lost your mojo. Your creations are always great.

  5. I love the composition of this card. I'm a big fan of running sentiments vertically, but I've never done it with two separate sentiments, it looks fab. I also like the way you've repeat stamped the bow for dimension.

  6. Must be something in the air because the same thing happened to me this past week! Glad you found this one to post because it's lovely. Hope you mojo turns up soon!

  7. love this. love the placement of the sentiments!
