Well, it's not the first Monday in August, but it is time for a long overdue Mojo Madness Contest! To participate, just make a card using this sketch and leave a comment on this post with a link to your project by Monday, August 25 at Noon Mountain Time (There's a clock on the sidebar with the official Poetic Artistry time). Once all the entries are in, I'll pick the TWO entries that I think are the mojo-est of them all. Those two winners will each receive their choice of ANY Verve stamp set! Winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 26. Sound like fun? Well, let's get started! If you upload your cards to SCS, please use keyword Mojo49 (no space between Mojo and 49) so we can see them in one place. As always, you can use any stamps or products your heart desires.
Okay, here's my sample card for this week. It also doubles as the current Meet the Verve Divas challenge Charmaine is hosting on the Verve forum. Her challenge is to make a black, white and a splash of color card. Check out this thread for all the details (there's free Verve Bucks involved, so head on over!) All stamps are from the Grateful Elegance set, and I cut out and popped up the largest one in the center for a little dimension. The rectangles are done with the Long Rectangles Nestabilities dies. The yellow paper is Tres Jolie by My Mind's Eye and the black and white paper is from SEI. The sentiment is punched out with a 1.25" circle punch and matted with a 1 3/8" circle punch. I embossed the top of the card with a Cuttlebug embossing border and then added a few little rhinestones for sparkle.
