Mojo Monday 478

Mojo Monday 478

Day one of 2017 done! The crop at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and Scrap-A-Latte was fun! It really always amazes me how much stuff the ladies bring with them. At least two or more trips to the car to bring all of their stuff in! I do like watching all of the creativity while they work. I got my card for today done early too. Must have been all of that creativity! When I got home I had some dinner with my Parent’s, Mum made beer battered fish and chips! After dinner I watched Star Trek – Beyond and then P.S. I Love You, how’s that for both ends of the spectrum?! You have to balance all of the explosions with a little mushiness! Today, lots of projects to work on! Loves me a little craftiness! 😀

It’s the first Monday of the New Year and time for the first Mojo Monday sketch of 2107…

I was in the mood for stamping and I wanted to change it up a bit so I layered! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Kraft and Solar White 80lb and placed them in my MISTI and stamped them with the greenery from the Concord & 9th Flourish Photopolymer Stamp Set a few times with Altenew Forest Glades Crisp Ink. I added a piece of printer paper and then lined up my circle that I cut out using the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies and stamped again. Next I stamped the flowers from the set in Deep Iris, Midnight Violet, Lavender Fields, Cotton Candy, Mango Smoothie and Peach Perfect Crisp Ink. The white panel is adhered to the Kraft wth E-Z Runner, I hid the adhesive for the Vellum behind the circle and the strip of Gold Glitter Card Stock that goes across the lower half of the card. My circle is then adhered with Fun Foam and more E-Z Runner. For the greeting I used the Concord & 9th Wonderful Words Dies to cut out a piece of Gold Mirror Card and two pieces of Black. They are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray and to the card with Multi-Matte Medium and Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. A little cascade of Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins completes the card! I do love the Flourish set and Altenew Crisp Inks, I’m also pretty happy with the way the layered look turned out! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the first Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge of 2017! Go over and check out the rest of the Team’s cards on the BLOG and we hope that you will play along by adding your card to the gallery! Thank you for coming to by to see me on the first Monday of the year! Hope it’s off to a great start! 🙂
