Mojo 389

Hi there! How was Monday? Mine was good, my friend Robin was back from vacation so we did lunch and then had some surprise birthday ice cream cake for her! After dinner I talked to Andrea for bit on Skype and then ran over to Brian and Kim’s. Brian is trying to decide what MacBook he wants. He is convinced that in this day and age of the cloud needs a huge hard drive in the computer. I told him not so any more. We will continue the discussion later in the week. Taylor came over when I got home and she was watching TV and then when the commercials came on she would watch something on her iPhone. It was like media overload! I retreated to the Stampin’ Galley to make today’s card to keep my sanity! LOL! Oh and a little update on Pinterest, I passed 100,000 followers on Monday!! That is just crazy!!

It’s Tuesday so here are this week’s Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals:

And today’s card is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…


The card base is Whisper White Card Stock. My background is a piece of Coastal Cabana on the top and some Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper on the bottom. They are both cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. Across the middle is a piece of ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack. It’s adhered around the back with Sticky Strip before I adhered it to the base. I cut out a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The hello is also a Simon Says Stamp Die and is cut out from a piece of Coastal Cabana along with the stitched star. I heat embossed them with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder from Ranger. The hello is adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue and the star with a Stampin’ Dimensional. A bright simple quick card that I hope would make anyone’s day a little better! I really do love the look of the clear heat embossing, it gives the pieces a nice acrylic look! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great Tuesday! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin, you are early with your post tonight! This card is so cool, LOVE that designer paper and the thick embossing powder! I see you have more than just the rectangles in the ‘stitched’ range of dies, Lol! Guess what I ordered online today!?! The large stitched rectangles YAY! I can’t wait to get them, hopefully next week 😀 Congratulations on 100,000 followers! I just got Pinterest 2 weeks ago, lol! I find myself scrolling through endless ecards in the humour section, and cracking up at things I think but would never say, he he – this was my favourite quote of the week, “I’d have better people skills if I worked with better people” So true! Have a great Tuesday Justin! ;-). xoxo

    1. Hello Kelly!
      Yes, I try to get the post up by 6:30am my time! Thank you! I needed a nice simple card! I am obsessed with the clear embossing! I do have all of the Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn stitched dies! I’m a little obsessed with them too! LOL! They are such cool dies, love the look of the stitching! Pinterest, you can get sucked into that site for hours! LOL! I’m a little blown away by 100,000 followers! So unreal! I love those quotes too! I have some printed and hanging by my desk! Hope you had a wonderful day my friend! XOXO 🙂

  2. Wow-100,000 followers! That is crazy awesome- so happy for you. I know you say you spend a whole lot of time on you tube- I do the same on Pinterest- hours can go by before I know it!
    Cute and simple card today without using a stamp set! The color combination is really nice.
    Congratulations to a very talented and all around nice guy!

    1. It really is crazy Marty!! I get sucked into Pinterest too! There is just so much cool stuff to look at!
      Thanks! I do like to make a nice simple card without any stamping sometimes! The die cuts are so much fun!
      Thanks again!! I appreciate it!! Hope you had a lovely day! 🙂

  3. Hello Justin! 😉 Such a bright and cheerful card today—I love it. You are killin’ me with those stitched dies…love all of them. I think SU should come out with some of those. Just sayin’. Love the thick embossing powder too. It looks great. Have a fantastic day-oh that ice cream cake sounds soooo good!

    1. Hi Karen!
      Thanks! I need as much bright and cheerful as I can get!! LOL! Sorry but I am addicted to the stitched dies! I think that Stampin’ Up! should come out with some too! I am also completely obsessed with the clear embossing! Who does’t like a little ice-cream cake?!?! Hope you had a nice day! 🙂

  4. Hi Justin:

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you. We are fortunate here that there will be NO SNOW today! Yeah – time for me to get out and do some errands I’ve been putting off.

    Love your card today. I’ll have to try some of that ultra thick embossing powder. Do you have a preference between multiple layers of regular embossing versus the UTE? Since I haven’t used the ultra thick, I really am not sure which option is easier to use.

    It sounds like you had a relaxing evening last night. Good for you. We all need that once in a while. I spent the evening finishing up the photo board for my daughter’s party. After all the photos were on there were a few places with small spaces between the photos so I punched a bunch of stars from gold glitter paper and filled in those spots. It wasn’t planned but boy, it really makes the photo board look great. I’m starting to think that some of the best stuff I do is totally unplanned. Maybe I’m an over thinker? LOL

    You have yourself a lucky St. Patty’s Day. Green bagels and beer……………good luck with that! LOL Big hugs to you my friend and congratulations on 100,000 followers. WOW!

    1. Hello Grace!
      Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you too! Yay for no snow! Feels good to get out of the house!
      Thank you! I think that everyone needs that Ultra Thick Embossing Powder! I am obsessed! With the UTE you only need one layer! It’s amazing!
      I did have a nice evening but I am paying for it today! Lots of projects to catch up on! No rest for the weary! I’m glad that you go the photo board finished! It sounds wonderful! I agree that sometimes the unplanned is the best! I tend to overthink things, sometimes I leave things to the last minute just so I have to do them!
      I don’t do green foods! LOL! Reminds me of mold! Huge hugs to you! You make my day infinitely better!! XOXOXO 🙂

  6. Cute card! the stitching around the edges gives the paper a leather look and that extra heavy embossing on the word does look acrylic! takes paper and stamping to a new level! congrats on your Pinterest milestone! isn’t it insane the number of people pinning things?!

    1. Thank you Susan! I do love those stitched dies! And I am really addicted to that clear embossing! Pinterest is crazy! There is so much amazing stuff to look at, I could be on there all day! 🙂
