Here's yet another "Mojo Monday on Sunday" project! My Happy Moments set had not yet seen ink and I needed a birthday card. I was inspired by the colours in the Sweet Pea Paper, even though I rarely use orange. Want your own Happy Moments or Whimsical Words stamp sets for free?

This week's challenge over at A Charming Place was to create any Valentine's Day themed project - quite easy since I've been playing lately with my new Love Bandit stamp set and the Sale-a-bration Good Neighbor paper pack. This box is made out of two Box #2 dies glued back to back. I also added a rhinestone pulled out of a rhinestone brad to the centre of the heart charm - found here.
In total I made12 unique cards and 12 matching scallop envelopes. The original plan was to make enough cards for my daughter's classmates and then send a little treat for the teacher in the box. However, I soon realized that I lacked the patience needed to make the additional 16 cards that would be required!
Stamps: Love Bandit, Framed with Love, Vintage Labels
Paper & Ink: Good Neighbor Paper Pad, Bermuda Bay, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Soft Suede

I got this clever idea for the new heart treat cups from Jackie Topa. I even picked the green M&Ms from my leftover Christmas M&M's. Isn't he cute? Here are the punches needed to create the frog:
1 - 1 3/8" Circle - Body
1 - Large Oval - Head
2 - Small Oval - Legs
1 - Boho Blossoms Flower - feet
2 - 1/2" Circle - eyes
2 - 1/4" Circle - pupils
The lily pad is made from one large oval and two layered boho blossoms.
Stamps: Inspired by Nature
Ink: Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Glorious Green
Cardstock: whisper White, Glorious Green, Green Galore
Accessories: White Pen, Heart Treat cups

I'm super excited to announce that I am back designing for A Charming Place! I almost didn't submit an entry, but after finding out that charms are not considered "competitive product" under Stampin' UP's new IDA, I decided to go for it. I was on the design team there several years ago and I realized that I had never created so many projects for myself than I did when I was working on Design Team Challenges every month. As you may have already noticed, I already incorporate charms into many of my projects, so I intend to blend my Stampin' UP business with my new position. Even though life has become even busier for me, I am looking forward to spending time in my studio creating for my own enjoyment again!
This card is my design for the first challenge. We were to use hot glue on a project. I dropped dots onto a scrap of window sheet and sprinkled them with Pink Fine Supernova Glitter. When they dried, I cut them out and attached them to my project. Check out the great new accessories on this project too - I love the new embosslit!
