Mojo 344

Posted on

It was another beautiful day here in New York! Finally, we are getting the spring-like weather that we have waited so long for! We are supposed to get some rain tonight and tomorrow morning, but then the sun will be out again. Work was quiet again today, just how I like it. I stopped by last night and met Heather and we took the munchkins out shopping and then went back and hung out with Kim for a little while. And the evening was finished off with a visit from my favorite singer, Andrew. Pretty good day, wouldn’t you say?

The post that I have for you today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Julee Tilman has provided us with an unusual sketch…

Mojo344

I stayed very true to this sketch, I even used a grid on my background! The base of the card is Night of Navy Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Etcetera Designer Series Paper Pack. My diamond shape is a piece of Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock that I embossed with the “Vintage” Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The tag is created with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and is stamped in Night of Navy with the steamship from the Traveler Stamp Set*. A piece of Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine is tied in a bow through the top of the tag. The stamp on the flag is a very “Vintage” one and it is from the Travel Log Stamp Set and is also stamped in Night of Navy. I slipped a toothpick behind the tag and flag that are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love all the detail in the ship image and I thought the “Adventure” stamp, even though it’s really old, went well with it. I hope you enjoyed my “Vintage” card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your Thursday is a great one! 🙂

  2. Justin,
    This is a great take on that sketch!! When I saw this set, I loved the images but had no idea what to do with them. Now that I see what you’ve done with the ship, I just may get this set after all. Love it!!! You are so talented!!

    • Hi Gerri!
      Thank you! I was a little puzzled as to what to do, the diamond shape was throwing me off! The images in the set are so cool, I love vintage travel, now if it had a plane it would be perfect! I hope that you have a fabulous day! 🙂

  3. Hi Justin! Great card! Love that stamp set…it’s a little out of what I normally like but I’m pushing myself to try new things. I love the layout and the colors you’ve chosen. Very nice! Thanks for sharing—have a fabulous day! Oh—we are supposed to hit 80 degrees here today so maybe that’s headed your way in the next day or so. Yay! 🙂

  6. I absolutely love this card!! Where is the Travel log stamp set? I don’t recognize it. I did order the travel stamp set and can’t wait to get it.

    • Thank you Sandy! The Travel Log is an old stamp set from a few years ago. It’s actually one of the first sets that I purchased! I hope your stuff comes soon so you can start playing! 🙂

  7. Justin,
    This card is beautiful! I love this stamp set! It was in my pre order, which I received yesterday! I love the colors you chose, they are perfect for the vintage look you achieved.
    I wish our weather was nice today, It has been pretty gloomy yesterday and today.
    Have a great Thursday!

    • Hey Donna,
      Thanks very much! I too love the stamp set! Are you loving the new goodies?! I love that particular piece of the Etcetera DSP. It’s pretty gloomy here today and will be for the next few days. You’ll have to make some sunshine from within! Have a wonderful day! 🙂

  8. Fabulously executed Justin!! I LOVE the details too!! This is such a crisp and true take in the sketch. The powerful Night of Navy ship really looks AWESOME on your tag, and what a perfect vintage banner to literally tie it all together!! I have always wanted a Bon Voyage card and this could be it!!! 🙂

    • Thank you Laurie! Love that ship and the rest of the stamps in the set! Yes, this would make a great bon voyage card! Enjoy your Friday! 🙂
