Yeah! Thursday! One more day to go until… FRIDAY! It snowed here yesterday morning but thankfully it didn’t amount to anything. We are supposed to get another storm on Sunday night, fingers crossed that it’s not snow and rain instead! I had a nice day yesterday. The best part was doing my Stampin’ Up! Webinar last night. It was the same one that I did at Leadership, Pinteresting. Thank you to all of you that joined in and if you missed it it will we posted sometime next week on the Demonstrator site. I also want to thank Katie Adams and Brian Pilling for their assistance last night. You guys are awesome! 🙂

Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I love it when they mix it up and this week is one of those weeks that they did just that. Julee Tilman has given us this tall skinny sketch…


This was one of those times that I knew exactly what I was going to do when I saw the sketch! My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock and the background consists of four layers. The top one is just a simple piece of Sahara Sand. The bottom three are Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding. I used my Fringe Scissors on each piece and overlapped them. My tag is created with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and some Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Whisper White to make it a little more sturdy. I tied a piece of twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack throughout the top of the tag and mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The bird is from the Natures’s Hello Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party and cut out with the Backyard Basics Framelits. Behind him is a piece of Pistachio Pudding that I stamped with one of the stamps form this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit in Pistachio Pudding and punched out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. Behind that is a piece of Summer Starfruit that is punched out with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I adhered it to the tag and done! I really do like the stamps in the Nature’s Hello Stamp Set, they are neat because they have the greeting inside the image. Hopefully the Fringe Scissors with be back in stock soon, they are so much fun! Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Mojo Monday card for this week’s sketch challenge. I hope that you all have a terrific Thursday and I’ll see you back here tomorrow for my Fab Friday Design Team card. I did something a little different and you’ll have to let me know what you think! 🙂

  1. Fun card! Love the little bird, and great idea to use layers of fringe for the sketch element. I missed the webinar but looking forward to watching it next week!

  2. Hi Justin! Yay for Thursday!! I love your card. The fringe adds so much. Can’t wait to get my scissors when the back-order comes in! I wasn’t able to catch your webinar live last night but I will definitely be waiting anxiously for the re-run. 😉 I’m sure you did great…it’ll be kinda fun to hear your voice too. Have a great day!

    • Hello Karen!
      Yes! Yay for Thursday but hooray for Friday! Thank you! The scissors are great and they do look cool layered! I hope you enjoy it when you do get to see it. My voice is not my favorite thing to listen to! I think it’s why I don’t do videos! Enjoy your evening! LOL! 🙂

  3. Love how the vertical DSP and fringe flow together. You’re killin’ me using the fringe scissors! LOL! I to am waiting on the backorder. Can’t wait to catch the webinar next week. Sorry I missed it last night.

    • Thank you Lisa! I thought the Designer Series Paper and the fringe flowed well together. LOL! Sorry, they were on my first order! I hope you enjoy the webinar when you get to see it! Have a nice evening! 🙂

  4. Your just so good at what you do !!!! Love it !

  5. So THAT’s where that darling little birdie came from!!! Love this card. Considering the best way to get $150 order together to get that Hostess set …..

  6. Hi Justin:

    Was the webinar just for demonstrators? I don’t remember seeing any info on how to watch it. I think it would be really fun to tune into.

    The fringed layers really look great. What a terrific idea! As usual a fab card.

  7. nice card, I haven’t bought into the fringe scissors, but I like what you did with them. I am still on the fence tho!

  8. Hi Justin,
    Love what you did with this sketch! You can never go wrong with a bird.. 🙂
    I caught the webinar last night. Great presentation!! I’ve pinned other peoples cards but not my own. I need to do that. Thanks!!

    • Hi Gerri!
      I completely agree! Love that little bird! Yeah! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the webinar! Yes, you definitely need to pin your cards! But it’s good that you pin others! Have a nice evening! 🙂

  9. BTW, it was pretty cool putting a voice to your face/blog….

  10. The colors are so soft and yet not boring . Your fringe cutting is as good as Brian`s snipping gift. How in the world can you get those fringes so even ? Looking forward to catching the rerun of your presentation .

    • Thank you Sonny! I love to fussy cut and the Fringe Scissors are easy! I am a very anal retentive person! LOL! Hope you enjoy the presentation! You’ll have to let me know! 🙂

    Super fun card Justin!! Your eye for detail captures your infinite creativity and your ability to point out little nuances that make a big difference, like the sentiment being inside the images with this stamp set!!! I like to read about the way you think through a card, and your warm, chatty demeanor makes me feel like we really DID talk about what you are sharing!!! I can hardly wait to watch your webinar!!!

    • Thank you very much Laurie! I love the way you describe things! It really means a lot that you get the connection I try to establish! I feel that you are all friends that come to have a little peek into my day. I appreciate you taking the time to comment, it means the world to me! I hope that you enjoy the webinar! Have a great day! 🙂

  12. Justin,
    Nothing! There is absolutely nothing I don’t love on this card!!! lol! I love the colors, the bird, the tag and that fringe…oh my gosh!! I do not own those scissors yet but it is definitely on my list.
    Justin, you are so very good at what you do. You inspire me every day. You have taught me so much about card making. I am so thankful for your creativity and your willingness to share your talent with us!
    Sorry I missed the webinar last night, but I will be sure to watch it when it comes up.
    Again, thank you for this excellent card!
    ps, just pinned your card! I am a huge pinner, never any of mine though, I need to start doing that!

    • Hi Donna!
      Yeah!! It was definitely a fun card to make and the Fringe Scissors are a great way to add texture and dimension! I can’t tell you how much it means to me to hear that I inspire you! You also need to know that your comments and visits inspire me to push myself! I really couldn’t do this without all of you! I hope that you enjoy the webinar when you get a chance to listen, you’ll have to let me know.
      Thanks for the Pin! You definitely should Pin your cards and then I can re-pin them!! 🙂
