Mojo Monday 487

Home / Blog / Mojo Monday 487

What a Sunday that was! When I got to the Store in the morning there was water all over, apparently there was an issue with a pipe somewhere in the building and it caused a leak. Renee, Angie and I must have used the Shop-Vac 20 times to vacuum up the water, they finally got it fixed around 3:00. Needless to say I didn’t get much done! My friends Lori and Debbie did stop by the store to pick up some goodies and I was also very happy that Jodi Collins from the My Favorite Things Design Team came in! So nice to get to meet her and chat with her about crafty stuff! You can see her blog HERE! After work I had dinner with my Parents and then watched some TV and read for a little bit. Today I’m off to Manhattan to see my friend Ella and maybe take a little trip down to The Ink Pad! Should be a fun day! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s Monday and you know what that means… time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

For some reason lately I have been into some really bright colors! My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of Pale Aqua for the background. All of my images are from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the jellybean outline repeatedly onto a piece of Crisp Green with Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass Ink to use for my strip down the middle. Next I used the Hero Arts Infinity Circles and Lawn Fawn Zig Zag Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Purple Hearts and Lawn Fawn Gummy Bears 12×12 Paper. I adhered them to a piece of Solar White 80lb and then to the card. The jar is stamped in Lawn Fawn Minty Fresh. I used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut out the stamped jar, a piece of Acetate and another piece of Solar White 80lb. I then cut out the negative of the jellybeans from the stamped jar, lined it up with the blank one and stamped the jellybeans in Memento Tuxedo Black. They are colored in with my Copics. I adhered the acetate to the back of the stamped jar and then used 3D Foam Squares to adhere it to the colored image. For the lid I heat embossed the image onto a piece of Galvanized Curios Metallic with Hero Arts Platinum Embossing Powder. It’s also cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts and adhered to the jar that is then adhered to the card. For my greeting I used the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy Photopolymer Stamp Set and stamped the happy in Merman, used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut it out, stamped the birthday also in Merman onto a strip of White and flagged the right side. The happy is adhered with more 3D Foam Squares and the birthday is tucked under the circle. I added a few Pretty Pink Poshย Sparkling Clear, Raspberry, Amethyst, Pewter and Lemon Drop Sequins for a little sparkle! The jar looks much better in person, with the Acetate it really does look like glass! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge!

  1. Love your jelly bean card. It’s definitely “happy” – which I’m sure you needed after cleaning up all that water. How cool that Jodi stopped in! Her creations are beautiful, and so is she!

    1. Thank you Carol! Yup, I definitely needed happy after all of the water… again! It was so nice to meet Jodi, she is so talented! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What a fun card today Justin! I think that the jar of jelly beans would also make for a great Easter card! I love all the colors together and that zig zag die is so neat! Sorry you had to deal with that mess yesterday. I hope none of the paper stock was ruined. Boy, the physical location of your store sure has had it’s share of problems between the construction, parking lot and now this.

    You have great weather for a day in Manhattan. Of course you will take some photos to share with us all right? LOL Enjoy your day off, you’ve certainly earned it. Love and hugs and wishes for a Magnificent Monday for you. XXOO ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Grace! Yes, the jellybeans would make a fun Easter card! The Zig Zag dies are some of my faves from the new release! I was ok, Renee lost some stuff. We have definitely had our share of issues but at least it’s gone now!
      I loved my day in the city as I always do! I always forget the pictures but also I like to take pictures when I get to go to new places. I didn’t go anywhere new. Love and hugs to you! XOXO ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Oh, this card makes me happy…..Lawn Fan makes me happy.

    Sorry about your water mess, hopefully you had no damage. A water mess is a huge issue anytime, but for paper crafts, ouch. Hope ypu enjoyed your day off…..

    1. Yay! Thank you Linda! Lawn Fawn makes me happy too!
      There has been way too much water in that place! I did have a lovely day in the city! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Nope, it’s not at all Sandy Lee. But it’s all part of the fun of the store! So happy that you like the card! ๐Ÿ™‚
