I missed last week’s “Mojo Monday” Card Challenge, but tonight I was determined to make a card for this week’s challenge.  I love how these challenges get my creative juices flowing and cause me to stretch my card designs.  Here is this week’s sketch – I could choose to use squares or circles and I always pick squares when I have a choice like this:

Annnnnd, here is the card I designed using DCWV “The Natural” cardstock stack, DCWV “The Linen Closet” premium matstack, K & Company “Poppy Seed Clearly Yours” epoxy stickers, a Colorbok “Woodhaven” stamp and a CTMH Chocolate colored marker.  It’s hot off the press – I just finished it!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

  1. I love the new layout, Steph. Very pretty 😀 Wow. Those Mojo Monday sketches are pretty intense. Haha. I’m thinking out of my league >_O But maybe I’ll give it a try into the new year :]

  2. Thanks, Danielle! Nah, you can do these cards! They’re intimidating at first, and the card takes a lot of time, but it’s so rewarding to have such a unique cards made. It doesn’t look like any of my usual cards and now I am inspired to make more cards with the leftover pieces. You’ll have to let me know when you do your first card. 🙂
