Mojo Monday 474

Day two of classes with Eileen Hull at the Store was fun! The ladies really enjoyed their projects and she was an excellent teacher! I got a card made and my Parent’s and my friends Marissa and Sandy came by to visit! It was actually a really nice day here too, sunny and not too cold. On the way to the Store in the morning I had to stop by Heather’s and take some pictures of her furniture that she’s selling and send them to her and stop at Aldi to get some creamer. After work I had dinner with my Parent’s and Taylor, Sunday nights have become Chinese food night, I do love some Broccoli and Garlic Sauce! After that I came home and watched a little TV and then spoke to Danielle on the phone for a while. A quick trip to get gas and to Target to get some dog food for Winnie and I was done. Today I have projects to work on and my Concord & 9th order will be in! Loves me some Concord & 9th! πŸ˜€

Well, since it’s Monday that means that it’s time for this week’s Mojo Monday challenge…


As you will see from today’s card I’m full on obsessed with the Hero Arts Coffee Cup Tags Set! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For my background I stamped the Hero Arts Holiday Florals Bold Prints Background Stamp in Green Fields onto a piece of Lemon Lime. Across the top is a stripΒ of American Crafts Gold Glitter Card Stock. The coffee cup is from that set, the Hero Arts Coffee Cup Tags Stamp & Cut Combo. I stamped the cup in Grape Juice and the lid in Black, the Coordinating Dies cut them out. The cup is adhered to a piece of Crisp Green that I cut out the the Hero Arts Lia’s Joyful Tidings Tag Set with 3M Foam Tape. I adhered the ornament to the card with more Foam Tape. For my greeting I die cut the merry from the Hero Arts Merry Stamp & Cut Set from more Gold Glitter Card and two pieces of Solar White 110lb, they are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I heat embossed the Christmas in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder onto a strip of Solar White 80lb and flagged the left side. The greeting is then adhered to the card with more Foam Tape. I stamped the stars from the same set in Grape Juice and made one strip into a banner and cut the largest one out. The banner is tucked under the strip of gold across the top and the large one is adhered to the card with still more Foam Tape. A few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst and Gold Sequins scattered about and a little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen added to the large star and the card is finished! I really, really, really do love that coffee cup set, especially in purple! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge!

  1. Hi Justin,
    Great card! I love what you do with the coffee cup tags set! Great take on this sketch.

    1. Hello Gerri!
      Thank you! I really do love the Coffee Cup Set! I have definitely used it a lot! πŸ˜€

  2. Beautiful card, Justin. It’s so non-traditional for me, but it is very pretty and anyone would be thrilled to receive it. I love all the different elements you have put together. Great job. Glad you had a nice day yesterday. Our weather has been quite nice lately with chilly mornings but warm, sunny afternoons. I’m spending time in my craft room today. Yay!! Now have 64 of my goal of 80 Christmas cards made, so I’m making progress. I want to work on some Thanksgiving cards. If I don’t get them out soon, Thanksgiving will be over! LOL! Have a great day.

    1. Thank you HJ! You know me and my non-traditional Holiday stuff! I’m going to miss the warmer weather, I fear that it’s almost at an end! Yay for some craft room time! WOW! Good for you, that great! Good luck with your craftiness! πŸ™‚
