Mojo Monday 424

And it’s Monday! My day was pretty quiet yesterday. I crafted for a bit and stopped by at Scrap-A-Latte to chat with Renee and Angie. I had the top down on the way there, it was 60 degrees and with the heat on it was quite comfortable! LOL! I finally did my laundry yesterday, two weeks is too long! This morning I’m off to Scrap-A-Latte to watch the store for Renee while she takes a much needed day off. Stop by and say hello if you are in the area!

Monday’s mean a new sketch from Mojo Monday and here is this week’s…


I wanted to play with the new Hero Arts Monthly Kit for November that my friend Kathy Racoosin designed so that’s what I used on today’s card! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used a piece of Simon Says Stamp Wood Paper for my background and adhered a piece of Adhesive Cork Sheet across the middle. Two pieces of Real Red are flagged and adhered in the upper right corner. My greeting is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black using the Hero Arts A Bit of Kindness Wood Mount Stamp. It’s part of Jennifer McGuire’s Share Handmade Kindness Campaign! I rounded the corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder and backed it with a piece of Black 110lb before adhering it to the card. My cute ornament is from the Hero Arts Monthly Kit for November, I stamped the ball and all of the images in Memento Tuxedo Black. The images are colored in with Copics and either die cut with the dies included in the kit or cut out with Paper Snips. For the top of the ornament I heat embossed it on Black 110lb with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. That too is cut out with Paper Snips and adhered to the ball with SNAIL. I adhered the ornament to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I love that little scene inside the ornament, especially the gnome! There are some great images in the Hero Arts Monthly Kit for November along with an additional set of coordinating dies that I’m waiting for. I think they are still available too! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch! Stop by the blog and check out the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you for visiting with me today! Have an awesome Monday! πŸ™‚

  1. Oh my Justin – what a cute scene you’ve put into your ornament. Looks like that card took hours to put together! It really is gorgeous and oh so colorful. It’s one of those cards that automatically brings a smile to your face. I have some cork here but never remember to use it, in fact I don’t even remember what I bought it for! LOL I’ll have to pull it out and put it somewhere that I’m looking at it so I use it. Also, a friend picked up two wallpaper sample books from last year that a store was throwing out. Those sample papers make fantastic backgrounds and the price can’t be beat! Have yourself a Marvelous Monday and if Michael calls say hi to him for me. Love and hugs, XO πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much Grace! I love the stamps in that set! It took a little while, especially coloring since they are so small! I’m happy that I got to put a smile on your face! I love to use natural elements on my cards, especially cork! I have to find the rest of the roll that I have! I don’t know what I did with it! The wallpaper book is awesome and yes, it makes for perfect backgrounds! Lucky that you got that! I will tell Michael that you said hello! Hope that you enjoy your Monday! πŸ™‚
