Mojo Monday 485

It was the most glorious day here yesterday! It got up to 65 degrees and it was nice and sunny! We had a fun day at the Store. Renee and Angie had their tag class, I worked on projects and catching up on things. I did sneak out early so I could go for a ride in the convertible! Oh how I love that! After some pizza for dinner Taylor and I watched a movie and then ran to Target. Today apparently is a Holiday, I will be at the store! Renee has her Home Decor Class today, more fun! 😀

It is Monday and that means time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…

I’m really into the teals and purples lately and that is evident on today’s card! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Concord & 9th Beautiful Words Photopolymer Stamp Set to stamp the outline word beautiful onto a piece of Purple Hearts with some Lawn Fawn Sugarplum Ink repeatedly to create a background and adhered it to the card. On top of that is a piece of Bo Bunny Believe Devotion 12×12 Paper with a piece of American Crafts Peacock Glitter Tape adhered across the bottom. I slipped a piece of American Crafts Purple Baker’s Twine behind the stamped background and tied it in a bow. My flagged piece of Tropical Sea has the solid beautiful heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder across the top and the YOU is die cut from Cyber Grape using the Concord & 9th Beautiful You Dies. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My butterfly is cut from more Cyber Grape using the Concord & 9th Floral and Flutter Dies. I adhered it with a sliver of a 3D Foam Square and fluffed up the wings and antenna. Some Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden Sequins complete the card. I still love that butterfly after all of this time and the colors, some of my current faves! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge!

Crop weekends are definitely my favorite weekends at the Store! Everyone is working on projects and laughing! I try to demonstrate something to make creating easier and more fun, sometimes it’s a big hit! LOL! And despite the gloomy, rainy day it was bright and sunny inside! After work I came home and a little Chinese with the Parent’s and then spent the rest of the evening watching the Grammy’s. With the exception of a few performances it was ok. Adele was amazing! Her version of Fastlove was incredible. And good for her starting over because something went wrong! She said she would and did! Today, another day of creativity at the Store, nice way to start the week! 😀

Since it’s Monday we get to be creative with a new Mojo Monday sketch…

My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock covered with a piece of Chinese Red. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out a piece of Patterned Paper and then stamped the airmail edge from the Altenew Happy Mail Photopolymer Stamp Set In Crimson and Sapphire Crisp Ink. I added a piece of 48lb Vellum that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares Stackables Lawn Cuts to the rectangle and then adhered it to the card base with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. A strip of Deep Blue is adhered down the left side. My images and greeting are also from the Happy Mail Set. I stamped the stamps and postmark in Memento Tuxedo Black and used my Copics to color them in. The hearts in the center of the postmark are stamped in Crimson and then that is cut out with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. I trimmed out the stamps with my Scissors and adhered them all to the card with 3D Foam Squares . For the greeting I stamped part in Sapphire and the love in Crimson and adhered it with more 3D Foam Squares. I do love the mail theme to the stamp set and the versatility too! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see the rest of the cards that the Design Team has created to inspire you! We hope to see your card in the gallery! Thank you so very much for starting your week off once again here with me! Have a stellar Monday! 🙂

Well, my Sunday didn’t start off as planned, I woke up at 6:00am with a massive headache, I text Renee to tell her I would be late, took Excedrin and went back to bed. Thankfully when I finally woke up around noon it had gone. I had to make the dip for the Super Bowl Party so I went over to Heather’s and did that. We picked up Stephanie and drove out to Islip for the party. We had a great time and the people that hosted it were really nice! I got to spend some time with my peeps and I enjoyed the Half-Time Show! Today I have lots to catch up on at the Store. One day not being there isn’t a good thing! 😀

The one thing that I really like about Monday’s is the fact that it’s time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

I had the flower for today’s card sitting on my desk so I decided that it needed to get used! For the card base I used a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and covered the front with a piece of Slate. To create my background I stamped the flower outline from the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Gray Crisp Ink onto a piece of Solar White 80lb. Next I heat embossed the leaf outline in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto another piece of Slate. Across the lower half of the card is a piece of American Crafts Silver Glitter Card. The flower and leaves are from the same set and are stamped in Blush, Rouge, Crimson, Velvet, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen Crisp Ink. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out and adhered them with E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares. My greeting is also from the Beautiful Day Set and is heat embossed in more White onto a piece of 48lb Vellum. I used a strip of Rose Chintz with a thin strip of the Silver Glitter Card and some more 3D Foam Squares to hold down the vellum. I love the way the grays really let the flower stand out on the card! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you so much for starting another week off with me! Have an amazing Monday! 🙂

And to begin our week here we have snow! Not a lot but snow none the less! Oh Winter go away! LOL! I had a very busy day yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. I got all of the Lawn Fawn Pre-Orders together, there were a lot so thank you very much! Finished them up last night and will get them off today! I also have a boat load of projects to start or get finished, but it’s mostly crafty things so it’s all good! I got a few things in from Sunny Studios too and they will be up on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store Site later on today! 😀

Monday and we have a new Mojo Monday sketch for you…

I kept very true to the sketch and used a bunch of Lawn Fawn goodies! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with a piece of Battleship Gray and then a piece of Authentique Fabulous 12×12 serves as my background. Next up is another piece of Battleship Gray that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables Lawn Cuts and on top of that is another piece of the Fabulous 12×12 cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts, some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner adheres it to the card. Two squares of Rose Chintz are cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares Stackables Lawn Cuts, they are adhered with more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My heart is a piece of Ballerina Pink cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Stackables Lawn Cuts, again adhered with more Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The greeting is a piece of American Crafts Silver Glitter Card Stock and two more pieces of Battleship Gray cut out with the Lawn Fawn Scripty Hugs Lawn Cuts. I adhered them to each other, the top one slightly offset, with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive and then to the card with 3D Foam Squares and Multi-Matte Medium. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Silver Sequins and the card is done! Love the pinks with the gray and the nice sparkly greeting! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Head over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and let’s see your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thank you for staring another week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

We are supposed to be getting a Nor’easter today! Thankfully not snow but lots of rain and high winds. Makes yesterday’s overcast weather seem quite nice! LOL! Renee, Angie and I had a productive day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday. I got some more administrative things finished and made my card for today. It was my Brother’s Birthday yesterday so I left the Store a little early, ran home and finished up a few things before heading out to his house for Dinner. Most of my time was spent playing with Daniel, what better way to spend a Sunday evening?! We had loads of fun, he has quite the extensive array of toys! When I got back to my house I watched Ever After, still one of my favorites. I’m a die hard romantic at heart! Today I have projects and all sorts of other fun things to do! Happy Monday! 😀

The start of a new week and of course a new Mojo Monday sketch…

I pulled out a favorite set of mine that I haven’t used in a long time! The flower and leaves are from the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flower in Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet Crisp Ink and the leaves in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen Crisp Ink using my Mini MISTI. They are cut out with the Coordinating Dies and put aside while I worked on the rest of the card. My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and for my background I used a piece of Photoplay This Guy 12×12 Paper. The half circle is cut from a piece of 48lb Vellum with the Hero Arts Infinity Circles Dies. Across the lower part of the card is a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Card Stock. I used it hide the adhesive for the vellum and adhered both to the card with E-Z Runner. My greeting is from the Altenew Sentiments & Quotes Photopolymer Stamp Set and it’s heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a square of Dark Molasses which is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. The flower and leaves are adhered to the square and a few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and Clear Droplets are added to complete the card! I do love that flower, especially against the dark wood and gold glitter really makes it pop! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has done to inspire you! We hope to see your card in the gallery! Thank you for staring another week off here with me!

Well, I enjoyed my Sunday and hope that you did too! The second day of the Anniversary Crop at the Store was fun! We had an Italian and American Hero, Macaroni and Potato Salad for lunch and of course dessert! Someone made a baked Brie with pears and it was delicious! After work I came home and had a little dinner with my Parent’s. The rest of the evening was spent watching TV. I’m still not feeling my old self yet and have little motivation to do much. Hopefully that will change as the week wears on! 😀

It’s Monday and I get to share my Design Team card with you for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…

I was lucky enough to get my January My Monthly Hero Kit in the mail on Saturday so I took it to the store to play with yesterday! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Chinese Red. Across the card is a strip of Crisp Green. I used the Hero Arts Nesting Postage Stamp Infinity Dies to cut out a piece of Carta Bella Beach Day Surf Shop 12×12 and a another piece of Crisp Green. I ran the patterned paper through my Big Shot twice to get it to be a square and adhered it to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. My images and greeting are from the January My Monthly Hero Kit. I stamped the bouquet and additional flowers in Hero Arts Bubble Gum and Memento Tuxedo Black which I also used for the wrap. The wrap is colored in with Copics and then adhered with the bouquet and additional flowers to the card with 3D Foam Squares. I heat embossed the Love onto a piece of Chinese Red in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, flagged the right side and tucked it under the flowers. Just a few Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry, Watermelon and Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card is finished. I love the flowers in the shape of a heart and the fun postage stamp dies! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has come up with to inspire you! Let’s see your take on the sketch, share your card in the gallery with us! Thank you very much for starting another week off here with me! Have an awesome Monday! 🙂

Well, despite the copious amounts of snow that we got the weekend went by pretty fast! The roads were much better this morning on the way to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. I did manage to get all of my list of things to do done! The store was quiet and Angie and Renee were there working on all sorts of projects so I snuck out a little early. On the way home I stopped by Brian and Kim’s, I haven’t seen then in way too long! We got all caught up and then I came home, did a little cleaning and waited for my friend Jim to come by for dinner. Taylor stopped by and is feeling much better, she went to the Doctor and got some medicine. I enjoyed a nice evening at with my friend, got all of my posts typed up for today and called it a night. More of my list needs to get finished at the Store today, hopefully I can stay focused! 😀

It’s Monday and what better way to start off the week than with a new Mojo Monday sketch challenge…

My card base is Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock and across the bottom is a piece of paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter Petite Paper Pad. Next up is a strip of Tropical Teal and a circle of Crisp Green that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Dotted Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts. My main panel is a piece of Blue Mint backed with some Battleship Gray. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Tree Border to cut out a piece of Dark Molasses and the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders to cut out a piece of Solar White 80lb. All of my images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Love Letters Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped my greeting in Black Licorice and the images in Jet Black, they are colored in with Copics, I stamped the HI and Smiley Face in Jalapeño and Peacock and cut them out with the Coordinating Dies. A few 3D Foam Squares on the back of the bird and phone to adhere them to the card and it’s finished! I think that Lawn Fawn Love Letters Stamp Set is so cute and I really like that greeting! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Don’t forget to stop by the BLOG and check out the rest of Team’s cards! We can’t wait to see what you do with the sketch so make sure and enter your card in the gallery! Thanks for starting your week off with a visit here! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

Mojo Monday 477

Another nice weekend spent with some really nice people, who could ask for anything more?! The Stamp, Ink, Paper store is always so much fun when there are loads of people hanging to and being creative! People working on scrapbook pages and cards. I got to help Evelyn with her Cricut, something new for me! If it plugs in I get it! LOL! I also got my inventory completed, a very productive day! After work I had dinner with my Parents and Taylor and then came home and relaxed. I try to do that on Sunday nights. Today I have a lot more system stuff to do at the store and hopefully everything will be finished by Wednesday! Wish me luck! 😀

It’s Monday and time for the last Mojo Monday challenge of 2016! We will be taking a little break until January so here is the sketch…

mojo477

My card starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, I covered the front with a piece of Herb Garden. For my background I place the Hero Arts Holiday Florals Bold Prints Background into my MISTI and stamped in in Hero Arts Green Hills onto Solar White 80lb and Versa-Mark onto Crisp Green and then heat embossed it in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. I then adhered the two sides, matching up the pattern, onto my card base. Across the lower half is a strip of Gold Mirror Card. My greeting is stamped in Hero Arts Lime to Forever Green Ombre Ink repeatedly onto another piece of Solar White 80lb using my MISTI again. The center one is heat embossed in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I backed it with some more Herb Garden and it’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. To complete the card I die cut one of the snowflakes from the Hero Arts Paper Layering Snowflakes with Frames from a piece of Ice Gold Curious Metallic. It’s adhered to the card with a 3D Foam Square and in the center is a Gold Pretty Pink Posh Sequin! I really do love the way the background came out and the MISTI made it so easy to do! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the last Mojo Monday Sketch of 2016! Head on over to the BLOG and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and lets see your one in the gallery!

It was actually a nice sunny day here yesterday. I started to feel a little better in the afternoon and Andrew came over to continue helping me with my little project, getting closer to competing it. We worked on it for about 5 hours. He headed out around 5:30 and then Taylor came by for a bit. I had gotten her one of the Amazon Fire Tablets, it was on sale for $33 how can you go wrong?! It is an early Christmas present and she loved it. I worked on a few crafty projects in the evening and am looking forward to getting back to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store tomorrow! 😀

It’s the start of a new week and we have a fun simple Mojo Monday sketch for you…

I was digging through some older supplies and found one of my old favorites so I included some on today’s card. My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Cherry Cobbler. On top of that is that Brushed Silver Metallic Card Stock that I loved so much back in the day! For the main panel I heat embossed the Hero Arts Holiday Florals Bold Print Background onto a piece of Basic Gray in WOW! Rich Play Gold Embossing Powder. I have seen a lot of people using it and I have to agree it’s a nice soft gold! The panel is adhered to another piece of Cherry Cobbler and then that is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. For the greeting I heat embossed a stamp form the Hero Arts Holiday Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set onto more Cherry Cobbler in more Rich Pale Gold Embossing Powder, another image and the greeting are heat embossed onto 48lb Vellum with Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder, I then used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. The lager image is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner and the Vellum to that with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. I tried a few sequins but it just didn’t need anything else! I do love that Rich Pad Gold and the detail on the Holiday Florals Background! I had forgotten that I had that one! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Don’t forget to stop by the BLOG and see the rest of teammate’s cards and enter yours in the gallery!

Is it really Monday already?! I was extra tired at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday. Not sure why but I needed a nap! It was so windy and cold here yesterday too, like 50mph winds, crazy! It even snowed a little last night! 🙁 Taylor did come up to the store to keep me company and make her grandfather a birthday card. I tried to work on some things and did manage to get a few things done but not as much as I had wanted to. Dinner with my Parents was good as always and after I stole a donut from them and came home and had a little coffee and watched some TV. The power keeps going out here for a second every so often lately, it’s getting really annoying! I think that I need to get a battery backup for my computer, not good to have it keep shutting off! Today I will finish up what I wanted to get done yesterday. Renee will be back in the store today, she has her Home Decor class today. 😀

I always look forward to Monday’s because it’s time for a new Mojo Monday sketch…

mojo475

I used quite a few different products on my card for today! The base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Classic Cherry with the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints Background heat embossed in Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. The main panel is a piece of Prima Sweet Peppermint No Peeking 12×12 Paper backed with a piece of Rose Chintz. I heat embossed the Hand Drawn Snowflakes again onto a piece of Yellow with Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder and flagged the right side. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th O Christmas Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Onyx Black onto another piece of Rose Chintz backed with a piece of Herb Garden. For my snowflake I used the Tim Holtz Paper Snowflakes Thinlit to cut out a piece of American Crafts Silver Glitter Card and adhered it to the card with  a 3D Foam Square. All that was left to do was to add a few Pretty Pink Posh Silver Sequins! It’s definitely an eclectic mix of goodies and not my usual style but I do like the way it turned out! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery!
