So how was Monday for you? Mine was rather productive! I love a productive day especially when it’s a Monday. The weather was little warmer here today but still very nice. Work was not too bad, again, pretty good for a Monday. I came home and had dinner with the ‘rents and then crafted for quite some time. I had mentioned that I have a bunch of projects to make and I put a pretty good dent in them last night. Makes me very happy! Tonight I will finish off the projects and then maybe tomorrow I will get to relax for a bit. That would be very nice indeed!
It’s Tuesday and that means there are some new Stampin’ Up! specials. Here are this week’s deals…
One of my projects from last night was my Mojo Monday sketch challenge card. Here is the sketch the lovely Julee Tilman has given us…
I used some unexpected DSP for my background. I love it when I look through a pack and get a nice surprise! My card starts off with a base of Smoky Slate Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper Pack*. It sort of reminds me of “Bewitched”! Next up is a piece of Basic Gray that is adhered somewhat in the middle of the card. My tag is a piece of Whisper White and I cut the top with the Angled Tag Topper Punch. I used a piece of Smoky Slate and the punch again along with the 1/2″ Circle punch to create the reinforcement. A piece of Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine is tied through the top and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Bermuda Bay for the frame and a piece of Smoky Slate for the backing. Inside are three feathers from the Four Feathers Stamp Set* that I heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card stock and cut out with the Feathers Framelits*. I adhered them under the piece of Silver Foil Sheet that I flagged on both ends. A piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon is slipped under the circle and adhered to the inside of the card with Sticky Strip. My greeting is from the A Happy Hooray Stamp Set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay and punched out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. I love the colors together and the sheep of DSP from the Motley Monsters DSP is just so cool! So there is my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge, I hope that you enjoyed it! Thank you so much for hanging with me for a bit today, I always appreciate our time together! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
