Mojo Monday 450

Another sunny day here yesterday, a little on the humid side but that’s because our streak of luck has run out! It’s supposed to rain all day today. Oh well, it was great while it lasted! I spent the day crafting, actually getting a little ahead! I managed to make three cards! Yippie! I also had to go for a ride and enjoy the weather so I headed over to Barnes & Noble in search of a magazine but I alas they didn’t have it. I’ll have to see if I can stop by one in Manhattan today, that’s where I’m headed. I guess I’ll have to be sure and bring my umbrella, wonder where that is?! Oh Happy Memorial Day to all my peeps in the states, it’s going to be a washout here but hopefully you will have nice weather where you are and get to enjoy a BBQ with your friends and family!

Today, like every Monday, lucky boy that I am, I’m over on the Mojo Monday blog for this week’s sketch challenge…


Love a Tall & Skinny!! My card base is Neenah Solar White 100lb Card stock. For my background I stamped a piece of Melon Mambo with the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints Background using Hero Arts Raspberry Jam Ink. Down the left side is a piece of Gold Mirror Card and my greeting, along with all of my images, is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Flower for You Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the greeting on a piece of 46lb Vellum and wrapped it around the panel before adhering it to the card with E-Z Runner. The flag is a piece of Solar White 80lb with the outline of the flower image stamped in Ultra Pink and that’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The main flower is stamped in Bubble Gum, Ultra Pink and Raspberry Jam with the leaves stamped in Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass Ink and Forever Green. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and adhered the leaves with Dot Runner and the flower with Foam Tape. Around the top I tied a piece of American Crafts Brights Hemp Twine in a bow to finish the card. I love that Flowers for You Set and the fun Confetti Background! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for his week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter your creation into the gallery! Thank you for starting another week off here with me! Have a fantastic Monday! 🙂

  1. I love this card, Justin, with the outline stamped flower for your backdrop to the beautiful flower and leaves. The vellum embossed greeting and the bright twine really make it pop. It’s great you were able to get some projects done ahead of time with your busy schedule you have now. The weather won’t be the best here today either but that won’t keep the festivities from happening. Enjoy your day!

    1. Thank you so much HJ! I really do like that stamp set! I’ve used it a lot! I thought that it needed a little more green and the twine was perfect! Now I know why I got all of that multi-colored twine! I love to get ahead, it doesn’t happen often enough! Thankfully, the weather turned out to be not so bad here! Hope you enjoyed your day! 🙂

  2. Hi Justin:

    I must live in a cocoon or something! I didn’t know vellum came in different weights and I know the vellum I have won’t “wrap around” anything. Boy, you teach me something new every single dang day! LOL This card is gorgeous and not only are the inks beautiful but I love their names – Bubble Gum, Raspberry Jam, cut grass! Yummy. I think Hero Arts has hit the nail on the head with it’s new multiple layering stamps and the 4 packs of matching inks to go with them. Wowser!

    You have yourself a Memorable Memorial Day Monday and take time to thank any Veterans you may come in contact with today. Love and hugs to you my friend. XXOO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      LOL! Yes, there are all different weights of vellum and I have a bunch now. I now know why there are different weights, one works better for certain things than the other! LOL! You don’t know how happy it makes me that I can teach you anything after all this time! I agree with you about the new hero 4 pack, I have always loved their layering sets!
      I hope that you had a great Memorial Day, mine was just perfect! I missed the city! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  3. WOw, gorgeous, and I LOVE! the color choices. Beautiful weather here in San Fran. I’m exhausted, Angel Island, Alcatraz then the Sea Lions. Conference stars tomorrow, LOL a day of rest

    1. Thank you Linda! I’m so glad that the weather is cooperating for you on your little vaca! You have to get as much in as you can! Enjoy the conference! 🙂
