Mojo 278

Posted on

Good morning peeps! How is everything on your end? Things are good here, other than it snowed, hailed, sleeted then rained here yesterday. We got every form of winter precipitation in one day. It’s supposed to be party sunny here today and go up to 50 on Wednesday with some rain. By the weekend it’s going to be in the 20’s again. Crazy weather! I sound like I am a little obsessed with the weather don’t I?! LOL!

Today my post is for Mojo Monday. This week’s sketch has been provided by Julee Tilman…


It’s got some more layers than we have had in previous weeks, a good excuse to bust out a lot of product! The base of my card is Rich Razzleberry Card Stock. I used a piece of paper from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper Pack for the background. Before I adhered it to the card I used some Sticky Strip to hold a piece of Pool Party 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon in place. The next layer is a piece of Rich Razzleberry that I embossed with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the main piece I stamped the images form the Best of Birthday’s 25th Anniversary Set in Rich Razzleberry. I cut one of the presents out with my Paper Snips and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The backing is a piece of Pool Party and the flags on the bottom are cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and Stamped with an image from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set in Pool Party. I adhered it to the card with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. A piece of Pool Party is punched out with the 1 3/4″ Scalloped Circle Punch and embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Some Summer Starfruit is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional to the Pool Party scallop circle. The image is from the Ciao, Baby! Stamp Set and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I really like the way the scallop circles all layer so nicely together and the color combination is neat too. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and thank you, as always, for stopping by. Have an amazing day! 🙂

  2. Just missing some thunder! We had reports of thundersnow in parts of VA last week (not near me; prob southern)…

  3. I have only recently realized how much a little layering can improve the look of a card. I really like your card with lots of layers and multiple types of embossing. Excellent!
    As for the North Texas weather report, 🙂 a thunderstorm just rolled in about 10 minutes ago. There is something so soothing to me about a good rain.

    • Thanks Lin! Layering can be a great thing! I would take a thunderstorm, at least that usually means it’s warm. We are supposed to get one tomorrow. 🙂

  4. Oooh lots of layering on this one – very pretty – love the “rosette”. Embossing folders used on layers really make the card pop. I am so glad that SU brought them out! I hope your thunderstorms are not too severe. Record flood in our nearest city so there will be a massive clean up to start soon. So many poor people are affected. We are cut off here but perfectly OK. Blackhawk and rescue helicopters are bringing supplies into our little town.

    • Thank you Jean! I love my embossing folders and layering too! I think we will have some thunder storms and high wind tomorrow afternoon. It won’t last long they say. It’s amazing how bad the weather has been all over. Glad that you are safe! 🙂

  5. Like your card and blog. Thanks for the inspiration.
