Mojo Monday 451 – jkcards

Mojo Monday 451

Hey peeps! How was the weekend?! I enjoyed mine thoroughly! The Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was busy yesterday despite the gloomy weather and the brief torrential downpour that we had! I got my newsletter done and started working on my little pamphlet for the Stamping 101 Class on the 9th. By the time I left the store the sun had come out for a little bit so the drive home was nice. I had Chinese food with my parents for dinner and then Brian came by and helped me with my new mattress. I got a Sleep Number bed, hoping that I can find my number quickly and enjoy all of the great things that I have heard about it! I’ll let you know how that goes! Today I will get my pamphlet finished and start working on new orders and some more administrative stuff. Oh how I love my job!!

It’s Monday so that means that I’m over on the Mojo Monday blog with the rest of the Design Team for this week’s sketch…


This was one of those cards that got assembled in my head while I was at the store! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangles to cut out two pieces of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card. I ran one of them through the Big Shot a second time with the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts and then used my Mini Ink Blending Tools, Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Ink for the Grass and Salty Ocean, Broken China and Tumbled Glass for the sky. Some water is flicked on the sky piece and dabbed off with a paper towel then the grass is adhered to the bottom and the panel is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The sun is a piece of Daffodil Delight that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles. My clouds are cut out from Solar White 80lb with the the Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Clouds and then some Silver Glitter Paper is cut out with the coordinating Simple Puffy Clouds Frames. I used some Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive to adhere the frames to the clouds and then adhered all three of them to the card. My images and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Yay, Kites Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used my Copics to color then in and stamped the hello in Memento Tuxedo Black. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. The kite and bunny are adhered to the card with Foam Tape and the hello with Multi-Matte Medium. To compete the card I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins! I love the simple and fun images in the Yay, Kites set, especially against that Distress Ink background! I hope that you enjoy my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketh Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Thank you so very much for starting another week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

  1. This is a great card for the challenge. I love the cute, fun scene you’ve created with all the different elements and so much texture going on. My weekend was great. I’m so glad to hear you say you love your job! When you are looking forward to going to work, life is sweet! Take care and I hope you have a great Monday.

    1. Thank you HJ! I do really enjoy the Lawn Fawn Sets! You can really make some fun scenes with them and most of their stamp sets work with each other! I’m happy that you had a good day! I really do absolutely love what I’m doing! How could I not?! You enjoy your day too my friend! 🙂

  2. What a delightful scene! Brings a smile to my face…
    I am so glad that you are happy in your new endeavor. I just don’t want you to get burned out as it seems you are working 7 days a week. Now that you are very busy in the store, I miss living vicariously traveling around NYC through your photos! Good luck on your Sleep Number bed. I am envious as I thought I wanted one of those. Enjoy your Monday and your week! Lunch for us out at a country club (business, but I’m not paying for it — way to go!) Hugs, Nancy B

    1. Yay! It makes me very happy to hear that I brought a smile to someone’s face with my card Nancy! I’m loving being at the store! I am working 7 days but I need to for now! I will still make time to go into the city, not to worry! I have to say that the bed was very comfortable! We’ll see how it goes! Enjoy your lunch, they always taste better when you don’t have to pay! Hugs to you my friend! XO 🙂

  3. Good Morning Justin:

    I love the way you outlined the clouds in silver – “Behind every cloud lies a silver lining”! Also, I don’t know how you ever got the idea to use the “hello” as a kite string! You are good! This card is so much fun. It would bring a smile to anyone. If your sleep number bed gives you a betting nights sleep and makes you even more creative I’m afraid Hallmark will snatch you up and we will lose you……………………..

    The plan for today was to wash windows and put up fresh curtains. Well, the race was rained out at Dover so they are going to run it today at noon. What to guess where I will be? LOL You have yourself a Marvelous Monday my creative friend. Love and hugs to you, XXOO 🙂

    1. Good morning Grace!
      I love that Lawn Fawn has a die that does that! So clever! Yup, silver linings! I think that it’s intended to be used as the string, I love how intricate the die cuts it out! LOL! You guys will never loose me! Not to worry!
      I need to clean my house so badly, just don’t have the time right now! I live vicariously through your cleaning! LOL! Enjoy your race and have a super Monday! Love and bug hugs to you! XOXO 🙂
