Mojo Monday 453

Hello my people and welcome to the beginning of another week! I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend and that you got to spend some time with family! I woke up super late yesterday! I think that the previous three days finally caught up with me! I had to help out my neighbor with his new printer before I headed over to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. It was another lovely day here on Long Island so it was a top down day all day! Angie, Renee and I got some things done and I left the store around 1:00 to head out to my brother’s to spend Father’s day with him, and the rest of the family! Here is a picture of Taylor, Me, my Dad, my Brother Jason and little Daniel!

Father's Day 2016

Three generations of Krieger’s! Jason made a really good dinner and Erika made my favorite, Couscous! Around 5:15 I headed back home to let Winston out and I ran a few errands before coming back to make my card for today and then work on some orders for the store! I have my Intro to Altenew this Thursday so I have to get ready for that!

Starting off another week my favorite way… playing along wth the rest of the Design Team for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…


My obsession with ink blending and stamp layering sets continues! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I masked off where the two diagonal pieces of paper would go and used my Mini Ink Blending Tool and applied some Mermaid Lagoon to the bottom and Mustard Seed to the top. After I removed the mask I adhered a piece of Hello Honey and Tangerine Tango forΒ my diagonal pieces. A few clusters of grass are stamped in Hero Arts Green Apple Hybrid Ink. The center panel is a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card that I added some Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade to after I cut it out with the Lawn Fawn Cross Stitched Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts. It’s then adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. That gorgeous Flamingo is from the Hero Arts Color Layering Flamingo Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used my Mini MISTI to stamp it in Pale Tomato, Unicorn White and heat set that, White Dye Ink and heat set that and then stamped the final layer in Ultra Pink. The beak, eye and legs are stamped in Intense Black and then he’s die cut with the Coordinating Frame Cut and adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium and Foam Tape. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of 46lb Vellum. I flagged the right side and adhered it to the card with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. Yup, I just had to add some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Pumpkin and Marigold Sequins! I do love the mix of bright colors and the awesome Flamingo! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge!

  1. Oooohhhh, love the colors, and the blending is gorgeous. That flamingo adds just the right amount of happiness to the card, Justin.

  2. Hi Justin:

    What a great family photo and your Dad is just a cutie! So, where’s Mum? Glad you and the family got to spend time together on Father’s Day. I think we all owe a lot to our parents whether we were with them or not. After all, if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be here right? LOL

    Tracy collects flamingo’s so I really do love this stamp set. The best part about Hero Arts to me is that they have the coordinating 4 color mini ink pads to coordinate with their stamp sets. To me this is just the icing on the cake. I need to get some birthday cards made as my stash in completely depleted!

    Your kind of weather here today Justin. A bit too warm for me but I know you would love it. Have yourself a Marvelous Monday my friend. Love and hugs to you! XXOO πŸ™‚
