Mojo 265

Posted on

Hello everyone! Not the best morning here on Long Island. The wind here was incredible. The fence in the yard blew down and so did the front gate, I couldn’t get in the back. So many trees down and we have had no power since 6:30 yesterday. Thank god for the generator! Hopefully the worst is over and that all of you in the area affected by the storm made it through ok.

Now on to happier things, before the power went out I made my Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card. This week’s sketch is provided by Julee Tilman…

We won’t even address the round or square this week! I did a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square card. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used my Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce the edge of the larger and smaller pieces of Early Espresso. On top of the larger piece of Early Espresso we have a piece of Primrose Petals that I stamped in Primrose Petals with the Good Cheer Builder Wheel. I used the Scallop Trim Border and Scallop Trim Corner Punches to edge a square piece of Very Vanilla to place on top of that adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next comes the smaller Early Espresso piece and another piece of Primrose Petals. The image is from the Scentsational Season Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso and cut out with the Holiday Collection Framelits Dies. The greeting is from the Mixed Medley Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals and punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. They are both adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I hope you enjoyed my multi-layered Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card. Thank you for checking in with me today and I hope that all of you affected by the storm weathered it well. Have a better day!

  5. So glad to hear all is OK with you Justin and that you did not get too much of your property damaged. So sad to hear of the deaths so far as a result of Sandy’s fury. I love your neat card. You have surely perfected using the corner and border scallop punches. I can never get my frames so accurate no matter how hard I try!

    • Thank you for thinking of me Jean. It is so sad to hear of all that Sandy did destroy. There is a neat tutorial on how to get the border punched all the way around. I’ll see if I can find it! πŸ™‚

      • Excellent, thanks Justin! I work mainly in inches so have no problems with the American measurements. We are seeing all the aftermath of Sandy on TV – there will be a massive cleanup to take place.

      • Thanks Jean! I forget that the Aussies have different sizes! Yes, Sandy left a big mess over here!

  6. Beautiful coffee card. It warms the heart.

  7. Your card is adorable. Love the paper piercing. All your layer look so crisp and clean. Stay safe with the weather. I’m in WI, and we have been having high winds, but nothing in comparison!!!
