Mojo 398

Just as I thought, it was a very busy day at work. Definitely a Monday. It was also really overcast and not that warm either, tomorrow, rain. At least the weekend was nice right?! I was also reminded by Marissa that we are off on Monday! YAY! Three day weekend, one of my favorite kinds of weekends! LOL! After work I came home and made a card and then took a ride with Taylor. We stopped at Target, because you can never go to Target enough, right?! LOL! When I returned home I watched some of the performances from the Billboard Music Awards. I also watched Sam’s acceptance speech done on large cards. A speedy recovery to him, I can’t wait to hear him sing again!

Before I forget, here are this week’s Stampin’ Up! weekly deals!

  Today, I have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…


I wanted to play with the new colors so I took my inspiration from the NEW Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack. The card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Bermuda Bay. On the lower part is a piece of that very Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper. I adhered a piece of Bermuda Bay on some Fun Foam across the bottom and on top of that is a piece of Pool Party that I flagged both of the ends on. Across the top of the card are three more flagged pieces of Pool Party, also adhered to Fun Foam. All of the images are from the Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set Nature’s Perfection. They are all heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, the butterflies on Crushed Curry and the flower on Watermelon Wonder. Some Foam Tape adheres them to the card. The greeting is from the NEW Host Stamp Set Floral Wings and is stamped in Island Indigo. A few Doodlebug Sequins are adhered to the flower with Crystal Effects and complete the card. I do really like the new 2015-2017 In-Colors, they are a nice mix of bright and subtle! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch challenge! Thanks so much for taking a little time out of your day to come by and visit, I appreciate it! Have a super Tuesday! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin, This was a nice layout. I like the butterflies on the tabs. and the layered tab too. 🙂

  2. Hi Justin!
    I love what you did with this layout. The colors are so fresh and bright! Love the flower embossed in white. I’m regretting not getting that stamp set when I had the chance. Of course, you make all the stamp sets look good.

    I have a question – if its too complicated to explain in an email, don’t worry. How do you get the weekly specials to display like that? I have tried cutting and pasting but that doesn’t work. I usually send out an email to my customers with a link to my website. That works but your way is so much more effective.

    1. Hello Gerri!
      Thank you! I love that set!! It’s just a fun set with some great elements in it!
      To answer your question I used My Stampin’ Blog ( to do all of my product links. There is a specific one that updates itself for the weekly deals. You just copy the code and paste it into the text editing part of your blog! Simple! Hope that helps! 🙂

      1. OMG! Thank you so much. It took a little playing around but I got it to work. YOU MADE MY DAY!!!

  3. Love your take on the sketch. Love the butterflies. Oh these colors are so neat!!! I love the watermelon, mint and taupe. Late fal is back here, we went from 80 to 43. Mother Nature is nuts!

    1. Thanks very much Linda! It was actually nice here once it stopped raining! My friend Andrea in Colorado is having crazy weather too! The warm will be back before you know it! 🙂

  4. Love how elegant the white embossing looks with this beautiful color palette. Fabulous card! Thanks for playing along with Mojo Monday this week!

    1. Thank you so very much Julee! And thanks for the great inspiration over at Mojo! Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
