'Birthday Wishes' Card

Every Monday morning, one of the first blogs I check out is Mojo Monday.  
I'm they type of crafter that needs a starting point before I sit down to make a card,
and the sketches from Mojo Monday do just that.  

The card I'm sharing today was based on THIS SKETCH.

I wish I could get my cards made in time 
to submit them to Mojo Monday's card challenge gallery,
but I'm always a day late and a dollar short ;)

'Zoo Babies' Cards

There's nothing like sitting down to make cards, 
and having them turn out just like you pictured them in your head :)

The cards I'm sharing today were inspired by THIS CARD.  
I loved the simple layout, and knew that I could make lots of cards 
in a short amount of time.

When I was making the elephant card, I realized that I didn't have 
a scalloped circle punch large enough to layer with the 2" circle punch.  
So I made use of what punches I DO have, and came up with this fun little trick.

I punched 2 Flourish Squares like this...

And then glued them together to make a scalloped circle. 

It ended up being the perfect size for what I needed!
Love it when that happens!

Supply List: (all supplies are from Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Polka Dot Parade, Rich Razzleberry CS, Old Olive CS, Basic Gray CS, Whisper White CS
Stamp Set: Zoo Babies
Ink: Basic Gray, Old Olive
Tools: 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, 2" Circle Punch (non SU!), 
2" Scalloped Circle Punch (non SU!), Flourish Square Punch (non SU!)
Other: White ribbon, White yarn

'Bring on the Cake' Card

Do you ever get in a crafting rut?
I think that's where I'm at now.

It's been really hard for me to craft lately.  
Even with my crochet.  
I start a project and it takes me a lot longer than it should to finish it.

I'm blaming it on winter blues.
The weather has been beautiful these last few weeks, 
so I'm hoping that my crafting mojo will come back in full force soon!

I was able to sit down and make this fun card a few days ago.  
It felt good to actually get something done!  

What about you?  How do you get your craft mojo back?

Supply List:
Paper: Basic Gray, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White, Birthday Basics DSP
Ink: Basic Gray
Stamp Set: Bring on the Cake
Tools: Owl Builder Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 2" Scalloped Circle Punch (non SU!)
Other: Basic Rhinestone
