I've been busy!

We were lucky enough to have a long weekend here in NSW, so today feels like Monday. I think I'm going to be a day out all week!
I've had the loveliest weekend of stamping, stamping and more stamping. Amy was at a Church camp all weekend, and Jacob had some time with his grandparents, so I got to sit down and just stamp! It was the first time in ages that I've been able to do that, so I had a long list of things I wanted to get done. I had 2 months worth of Elite Challenges to catch up on for starters, and then I've been wanting to try out some Mojo Monday sketches, so I decided to combine the two. Here are some snapshots of my efforts (you'll need to click on the pictures to be taken to the full card)
Build-a-Roo saw ink for the first time in a Colour Challenge, paired with a Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

Cheep Talk also saw ink for the first time in a Stamp Set Challenge, combined with Keesh's Inkspirations Colour Challenge and I used a Mojo Monday Sketch

I used Flight of the Butterfly for this Colour Challenge, paired with another Mojo Monday Sketch

I used Fresh Cuts for this Stamp Set Challenge, paired with yet another Mojo Monday Sketch. It was the first time I had used the gorgeous Bella Bleu DSP.

I used Petal Pizazz for the first time for this Sketch Challenge, paired with a Colour Challenge by Alisa Tilsner.

This one's my favourite. I used Trendy Trees for the Stamp Set Challenge, paired another Mojo Monday sketch and I used Windsor Knot DSP for the first time (love it!)

And this one I hate LOL I thought I'd try the Sticky Cuts, and they are brilliant to make a quick card or design element with TONS of bling. I just don't like how it all came together on this card though...it's waaay too bright for my taste. It was a Sketch Challenge.

I have to say the Mojo Monday sketches are fabulous! I'll definitely be visiting there again...I can't think why I haven't been there before now!


  1. Wow Marelle busy is an understatement! How fantastic to have the time to sit and create all those gorgeous cards. I love them all! I love Mojo Monday too!

  8. Just beautiful cards Marelle! I especially love the little kangaroo one - I'm yet to ink my set up! sigh!


  9. Wow, to get so many done. Would love to have the guilt free time to create. If you think your last card is bright, you should see the new in-colours in the American catty. They are super bright.

  10. That kangaroo card is lovely, love the way you have used the ribbon, the colours, it's so cute. Another set for me to consider, lol!

  11. These are really pretty! Better than some of the rubbish cards we get in stores here :)

  12. They are amazing, your mojo is on fire (if that makes sense). Great cards, the Fresh Cuts is so beautiful!!!

  13. Wow! Marelle ... how do you do all that you do??? We were away at church camp ourselves on the long weekend ... but it must have been nice to just spend some time stamping! Thanks for sharing all your gorgeous creations! Hugs, Andrea xxx
