Mojo Monday 470

Well that weekend flew by! I woke up really late yesterday morning… again. I think that the toothache is wearing me out! I did get to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store on time and managed to get to work as soon as I got in! I got my Newsletter finished and then worked on some projects. I did get a nice surprise visit from my friend Sandy who stopped by to get a few goodies! After work I had dinner with my Parents and then fished up my card for today. I won’t be at the store today as we are saying a final goodbye to Heather’s Dad Arthur. She will have her friends and family there with her. Her memories of him will get her through this difficult time.

On a happier note it’s time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…


I guess I really like the Concord & 9th Lacy Leaves Set, I just can’t stop using it! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Moonstone Blue, I cut off the top left corner on an angle and then tied a piece of Hemptique Black Hemp Twine around the corner with a bow. The background is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. Next up I stamped the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Photopolymer Stamp in Onyx Black onto a piece of Solar White 80lb and cut it out with my Scissors. The panel is a piece of 48lb Vellum, I heat embossed the Lacy Leaf Stamp in Hero Arts Platinum onto it and then used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply some Avery Elle Sapphire Pigment Ink to color the Vellum. Across the top is a piece of Silver Glitter Paper with the left side flagged. I cut my greeting out of more of the Silver Glitter Paper and two pieces of Solar White 110lb using the Concord & 9th Grateful Leaves Die. Some Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive adheres them to each other and some Multi-Matte Medium adheres it to the Vellum. I adhered the flagged strip with 3M Foam Tape and then added more Foam Tape to the back of the Vellum behind the flag and greeting to adhere it to the card. One of the small leaves from the set is also heat embossed and cut out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered to the flagged strip with more Foam Tape. A little sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Pewter, Sea Breeze and Silver Sequins competes the card. I really do love the Lacy Leaf Set and the Pigment Ink was a cool way to color the Vellum! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Don’t forget to visit the BLOG and get some inspiration from the rest of the Team! We can’t wait to see your card in the gallery! Thanks for starting another week off with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂

  1. Hi Justin, Prayers and thoughts for Heather today.
    Love the cut corner with the black hemp. I’ll have to remember that.

    1. Hello Nancy!
      Thank you! It was a nice day actually. The weather was perfect and the lunch after was a happy gathering.
      Thanks! Glad that you like the card! 🙂

  2. First, I am so sorry to hear about Heather’s dad. Hope she finds comfort in her memories and being with her friends and family. Such a tough ordeal so I am glad the sun is shining for her today.

    I really love this card! The Tree Ring stamp is the perfect base for sentiment and the vellum piece and with the gorgeous Lacy Leaves. I must admit to being SHOCKED that you are cheating on your Alta New inks though! 😉

    1. Thanks Linda, I’ll pass along your condolences. The lunch yesterday was very nice and it was a lovely day.
      The Tree Ring Stamp is one of my favorites! LOL! I do love other inks too! 🙂

  3. Gorgeous! Those lacy Leaves are beautiful, stamped or embossed,

    Yep, I wil never understand how days off “FLY BY” so darn fast.

    Indian summer here, humid but it beats the cold damp weather we have been having

    1. Thanks Linda! Yes, love the Lacy Leaves!!
      The weekend, not that it means much for me now, does go by quickly!
      I am loving the weather! It’s in the 80’s here! YAY! 🙂
