Mojo Monday 471

Another quick weekend come and gone! It was nice and sunny here yesterday but still cold. I know nothing I can do about that! Renee had her explosion book class at the store and I worked on getting ahead for the week! I made parts for three cards! After work I came home and had dinner with my Parent’s and Taylor. She came back to my house and spent a little time with me… sleeping on the couch! Always good to have a visit with the child. I spent some time in the Stampin’ Galley finishing up the cards that I was working on and also finished the one that I started on Saturday night that I didn’t like. After that I watched Star Wars – The Force Awakens. Today is Newsletter day for me at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. It didn’t happen yesterday! I’m also getting a replenishment from Concord & 9th! My favorite stamp company! 😀

It’s the start of a new week and I’m over on the Mojo Monday blog for this week’s sketch challenge…


Today’s card is nice and masculine and would work for a birthday or even a thank you! The card base is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Dotted Rectangles Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut a piece of Shale to cover the entire front of the card. Next I heat embossed the Stampers Anonymous Ledger Script Stamp in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it in Hero Arts Brass Embossing Powder onto a piece of Battleship Gray. I used the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Open Book Dies and the Lawn Fawn Dotted Circles Stackables Lawn Cuts to cut out two pieces. I ran the circle through my Artisan X-plorer again with the Large Dotted Rectangles and adhered it to the card in the lower left corner. The main panel is another piece of Ivory 110lb cut out with the Lawn Fawn Dotted Squares Stackables Lawn Cuts. My greeting is from the Concord & 9th Brushed Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Altenew Moon Rock Crisp Ink. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner and the deer head to the panel with Black 3D Foam Squares.In the upper right is another piece of Battleship Gray with the bottom flagged. I die cut the star from the Concord & 9th Happy Card Frames Dies from more Ivory 110lb and heat embossed them a few times with more Brass Embossing Powder. They are adhered with more 3D Foam Squares and Multi-Matte Medium. I always forget that I have that Ledger Script Stamp, I love text stamps and that one looks so neat heat embossed! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! Take a quick trip over the the Design Team BLOG and check out the rest of the cards there for inspiration!

  1. Wow Justin!
    You hit it out of the park with this one. LOVE this. The embossed script that continues onto the deer, the copper embossed stars. Awesome job with this sketch!

    1. Thanks very much Gerri! I had the used for the card and then I had to find all of the stuff to make it. I knew that I had it! 🙂

  2. I don’t know how your layout and design came about, but it’s fabulous. I love the embossing on the background panel and the die cut. All of the elements are so different, yet tie together beautifully. Thanks so much for the creation.
