Mojo 322

Posted on

Thankfully, only one more day left until my Friday! Yes, it will be an early one but it will still be Friday! I got my box of pre-order goodies yesterday and I spent some quality time in the craft area last night. So much fun new stuff! I made a card which I will post tomorrow from one of my favorite new stamp sets and coordinating framelits. I still have some stamp sets to mount and a lot of organizing to do but it’s all good! Have you seen the new catalog? What are you most excited about?!

Today’s card is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge which is provided by Julee Tilman…


I decided to make a traditional card today. The base of my card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and the background is a piece of Old Olive which is embossed with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Layered on top of that is a piece of Season of Style Designer Series Paper which is backed with another piece of Cherry Cobbler. Across the middle is a piece of Baked Brown Sugar and adhered around the back is some Cherry Cobbler 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon. Next up is the greeting which is from the Christmas Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive, cut out with the Deco Label Collection Framelits and backed with a piece of Cherry Cobbler cut out with the same Framelits. A traditional Christmas card is not an every day occurrence on my blog and I hope you enjoyed it. I really like the way the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder strangely compliments the DSP. As you know, I’m always happy to have a visit from you! Here’s to a wonderful Thursday (and a quick one so we can get to Friday)!! 🙂

  1. Oh how I love the 3-D effect on your card with the DSP! Poppin’ right out at ya. Cherry Cobbler is one of my favorite colors. It is so rich looking. Texture, texture and more texture, very nice. I can’t wait for Friday also and getting out of work early, well that’s just an added bonus. Giving you more time to play with all your new goodies, Enjoy Justin!

  2. Stunning, absouletly love it! I know how you feel, I took Monday off, and it still seems like a long week.Just remember, as fast as the weekend is here, is as fast as the weekend is over:( Boo Hoo! Take care and enjoy your day!!!!

  3. That’s an eye catcher for sure Justin and it’s nice to see a card in traditional colors. Haven’t seen the new catty yet but I’m excited about it already. It’s quite the buzz on the internet. I love getting new stuff to play with, it’s like early Christmas.

    • Thanks Grace! I do like a little red and green every once in a while! You are going to love the new catty!! It was definitely like Christmas last night! 🙂

  4. Hi Justin! Great card and I have to say I do like the traditional Christmas colors. And finallly! I don’t have to add any supplies to my SU wishlist..I have everything you used on your card. 😉 I’m anxiously awaiting my new goodies too…can hardly stand the wait. Looking forward to what you have in store for us tomorrow. I’m sure it will be awesome! Have a great day!

    • Hello Karen!
      Thank you! I do enjoy traditional colors every so often! I’m glad to hear that you have all of the supplies. I hope you enjoy tomorrow’s card, I had fun making it! 🙂

  5. These colors are so luscious together, Justin, and your DSP is so intriguing that I have to look at this package of paper with a different eye now. The band of ribbon pulls it all together. Wonderful job. No school today: I get to stamp!! Happy Friday to us!!
