Welcome to Monday Motivation! I used the Flourishing Phrases for my motivation this week, and I love how it turned out. Combine the Flourishing Phrases with the color combination of Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry.

Flourishing Phrases Motivation with Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry from www.mystamplady.com

I cut out the Melon Mambo flower and then used the remaining card stock outline to sponge a Pool Party background for the flower. I like how the sponged background on the Whisper White circle make the flower stand out a bit more.

You The Foxy Friends Bundle has been here for a while, but it has been busy that this has been my first opportunity to use the stamps.  You can make so many different animals with this set, but I decided to start with the fox.

Can you see that little bit of embossing that is peeking out from under the trees? I embossed the Smoky Slate card stock with one of the Floral Affection embossing folders.

Welcome to Monday Motivation! Oh, did I need motivation today after having such a busy schedule last week. The color combination Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, and Island Indigo just feels like sunshine.

Welcome to Monday Motivation! Today I have created both a feminine and masculine card based on the same sketch. I love sketches because you can use a sketch as a starting point and then go off in so many different directions.

Monday Motivation card sketch 1 from www.mystamplady.com

Here is my feminine card with the Birthday Blooms set. I have used this set many times in the pinks so I wanted to go a different direction today. I colored the flower in Wisteria Wonder and used a bit of Perfect Plum to add the darker color. I would use Elegant Eggplant instead of Perfect Plum. I did not like the Perfect Plum so I went over it so it did not show up as well.

Monday Motivation www.mystamplady.com sketch masculine and feminine cards from the same sketch from My Stamp Lady

The focal image flower is highlighted with the Clear Wink Of Stella Marker to add a wonderful shimmer to the Wisteria Wonder bloom. You can see the shimmer much better in real life.

Here is the Masculine card from the same sketch created with the set The Wilderness Awaits. I used a few of the retired candy dots because I do not have the new Enamel Dots yet.

Monday Motivation www.mystamplady.com sketch masculine and feminine cards from the same sketch from My Stamp Lady

There is a little bit of Crumb Cake sponged on the card front to accent the upper right corner of the focal image. Stamp the splatter in Versamark to give just a subtle image. I wanted something in the upper right corner , but I did not want it to overpower the focal image.
