Mojo 253

Hello and good morning to you all. First order of business, Happy Birthday to my friend Danielle! I hope that everyone is having a good week. Mine is going well. I was a Perfect Prince(ess) over at Freshly Made Sketches today! Thank you to all of the lovely ladies over there and a special thanks to Cindy for choosing my card. You can see the card over at Freshly Made Sketches.

Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week Julee Tilman has provided us with this sketch…

I like when, on occasion, the sketch calls for you to not put things on straight which sometime can be more of a challenge than putting them on straight! For the first time I have some Halloween stamp sets. Ever since I became a Demo I am really into the Holidays like never before. I can’t wait to make some Halloween stuff to decorate the house! My card starts with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. I used the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Tangerine Tango for the background. The strip of very vanilla “ribbon” is stamped in Tangerine Tango with the Border Banter Stamp Set. The pieces of Designer Series Paper, mounted on Basic Gray and Basic Black, are form the Howlstooh and Scaringbone Collection. For the main image I used a stamp from the Toxic Treats Stamp Set and stamped it in Basic Black on Very Vanilla. I used the Labels Collection Framelits Dies to cut it out and cut out a piece of Basic Black, cut it in half and adhered it to the back for a little border. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango. I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and the Paper-Piercing Tool, fast becoming one of my favorite accessories form the 2012 Catalog, to pierce the edges and flagged the one side with my Paper Snips. The image and greeting are both mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The rosette is also made from the Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP and I used the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and the Owl Builder Punch for the circles in the middle. I’m having so much fun using all of the products from both of the catalogs! I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card and thank you so much for visiting! Have an amazing day!
