Mojo 318

Posted on

Hey peeps! How’s it going? Things are good on my end. It’s been a quiet week, which is nice for a change. Work was busy but bearable today and the weather was nice. It’s supposed to rain and then get colder over the weekend. Ahh, I long for spring already! I did get to spend some quality time at the craft desk last night and I made a card that I really love! I’ll post it tomorrow and you’ll have to let me know what you think!

My post for today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This week’s sketch is from the talented Julee Tilman…


I really do always like the Mojo sketches, lots of layers! My card starts off with a base of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. The background is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Dictionary Background Stamp in Sahara Sand. A strip of Bermuda Bay is flagged on the bottom and embossed using the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Pool Party tag is stamped with the Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay and the “little” in Cherry Cobbler and popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional. A piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon is tied in a bow using the “Fork” method and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot. Across the bottom of the tag is some Cherry Cobbler that I cut out with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die. My snowflakes are from the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and are stamped in Pool Party and cut out with the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies. Three red sequins in the top left finish off the card. I’m really enjoying the blues this Christmas and I love that Dictionary Stamp! Thank you for taking some time to stop by and see my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Have a great Thursday everyone! 🙂

  1. WOW! Pretty awesome card, Justin!
    The colors, are so very soft! Love it!

  2. Beautiful! Soft and bold at the same time.

  3. Hi Justin–Love everything about this card…the colors, the texture and the touch of bling! I think you’ve talked me into yet another stamp…the background dictionary. 🙂 Can’t wait to see your creation for tomorrow’s post. Have a great day!

  4. Oooh, very, very, nice Justin. I love the color combo AND the layout. A beautiful Christmas card.

  5. It’s strange how “little” things can really draw your eye. I absolutely love the way the word little is popped out and eye catching using the Cherry Cobbler. It brings you directly to the central theme of the card. Also, I just love the use of the framelits die. They are just the best! Great card Justin.

  6. Love that colour combo Justin. Real “pops”. Very beautiful card.
    I came to see it here first so I would see all the details (you know with my ‘old’ eyes…. seem they are growing older faster than I am… that last birthday seems to have “hit me hard”… oh well. c’est la vie!) LOL.

  7. Love this card. Those sequins really set it off nicely.

  8. Hi Justin,
    This is going to sound like a silly question, but how do you get your bow to look so perfect? I’ve tried and tried and tried, but mine never look this good. I even purchased a bow maker from but they still don’t look as good as yours. Do you do video tutorials?
