Where is my mojo?

Hello, my friends.  I didn't realize how long it's been since I posted until I looked at the date from my last post -  August!  I really have been missing.  Life sometimes just gets in the way.  I've had a major household chore that needed to get finished and just haven't been doing anything creative, with the exception of cards for my classes. 

Today was my technique class and rather than an actual stamping technique, each of the three techniques was a special type of card. 

The first one is a twisted card, which looks more complicated than it is.  There are two folds, the first is diagonal and the second is perpendicular to the first, creating an unusual shaped card with a pocket on the front and another inside. 

The second card is an easel card.  The way the card is put together creates a card that stands up like an easel. 

The third card is a kickstand card.  The front of the card is cut short and another panel is added to the bottom. 

All are fun cards and ways to make your cards a bit different. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hopefully, I won't be gone so long before my next post.

I really like the twisted card! I need to make a bunch of those for my stash...they would be great for birthday cards! (WAIT! does that require mojo?! Hmmmm....that might be harder than I thought!)
The leaf card is also great. I LOVE leaves and the embossed texture on the bg is perfect!
Last but not least, the kickstand card...Love the vintage look to it!
