Mojo 313

Another beautiful day here again! We have won weather lotto as of late and I’m loving it! I have noticed that it’s getting darker earlier and the sun isn’t up when I get up anymore but the weather has made up for that! Yesterday was definitely a Monday though, work was a little insane and I couldn’t wait to get home and make something! Today is my Mum’s birthday, so a very Happy Birthday to my wonderful mother! I will share her card a little later in the week. She actually requested a specific card this year!

Today I have my Mojo Monday Sketch challenge card to share with you. This week our sketch is provided by Julee Tilman…


I’m not even going to mention the round or square thing! LOL! I dusted off a set that I have neglected lately, it’s a favorite of mine too! The base of the card is Elegant Eggplant Card Stock and the background is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the World Map Background Stamp in Smoky Slate. I finally got the Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Emboss Powder a little while ago so I heat embossed the greeting from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set right on the background. The balloons are from the same set and are stamped in Elegant Eggplant and cut out with my Paper Snips. Two Tangerine Tango flags are behind each one and the balloons are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think this card would make a nice bright masculine birthday card, I like the way the Smoky Slate tones the Eggplant and Tangerine down a bit. Thank you so much for spending some time with me today to see my Mojo Monday Sketch challenge card. I love reading your comments and I hope that you have a fantastic day! 🙂

  1. Someone has really come over to the Fussy Cutting Dark Side lately, and I love it. This is a great pairing of stamp sets and colors! Nice!

  2. Fabulous card Justin, I love everything about it! You’re Mom must be a fantastic lady as today is my hubby’s 70th birthday also and he is a fantastic guy! Great snipping there.

    1. Thanks you Shirley! I didn’t do it for a while but I have been heat embossing a lot lately. I hope that you had a nice day and a great week!



  3. Very nice card. I love the colors together. You reminded me of my “forgotten” set-took it out to use soon. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  4. Great card Justin. And I used that stamp (balloons) for a swap card! I can’t even remember how many of these I cut out and foolish me I even did paper-piecing for the basket, in a different color! Probably had hit my head on something that day. LOL. I’ll have to post it on my blog!

    Love those colors together BTW. And a very Happy Birthday to your Mum. My son’s BD was the day before yours and my BD is in October too….. but I am a Scorpio, sometimes harder to get along….

    1. Thanks Louise! WOW! That is not the easiest to fussy cut and I can even imagine paper-piecing it! I would love to see the card! Wow, we are all very close. I find you quite lovely actually! 🙂

  5. Love this card Justin and a great fresh interpretation of the sketch design. I keep looking at it but all I can see is baubles, so your design has finally enabled me to take a fresh look – cheers!
