Scrapbook Carnival – Lost Mojo

I had a blast at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival that was on at Spruce Meadows for the last two days.  It was great to see so many scrapbooking friends out there and some Stitching and Quilting friends as well, as it is a combined carnival.  The only drawback for me was that I lost a circle die and my mojo.  I did some alcohol backgrounds and some lift ink techniques that I liked, but no amount of fixing and fiddling made them come together into cards that I liked.  Part of the problem was that the work space allotted was very small.  This probably also contributed to me losing my die.  The rest of the problem was lack of mojo.  I didn’t want to abandon the projects, so I took a look at them again today, to see if they could be salvaged.  I am happy to say that it was a different experience today.  While my circle die seems to be gone forever and I had to use a slightly smaller one to finish my card, I like the result.

This card is once again made with the Stained Glass Suite from Stampin Up.  This time, however,  it is paired up with Stampin Up “Subtle” embossing folder and a Lift Ink technique.  I think I am going to get a lot of use out of the “Subtle” embossing folder as it just adds a little something to the overall design without competing with the main images.  The rhinestones from Studio Katia reflect all the colours of the alcohol ink.
