Mojo Monday Week #58

Happy Monday Everyone! Thanks to everyone who played along last week. I've been so incredibly busy I haven't had a chance to comment on everyone's cards yet, but I promise I'll get to them. I hope you're ready for another week of mojo. This week is a simpler layout, but I thought it was a lot of fun.

To play along, just make a card using the provided sketch and leave a comment on this post with a link to a photo of your creation. There is no time limit - you can play any week at any time. If you happen to upload to SCS, please use keyword Mojo58 so we can see everyone's mojoliciousness all in one happy place.

My sample card uses the new Fright Night set from The Cat's Pajamas as well as a sentiment and flame from Havin' a Pow Wow. I started by stamping the cauldron and coloring the flames with Copic markers. Next I stamped the owl, colored with Copics and cut him out to perch him on the cauldron. I used my paper piercer to pierce a little border around the panel and then matted on black cardstock. The patterned paper is from the BasicGrey Ambrosia Collection, which I matted on black and adhered to the the white card base, piercing a line above and below the panel. Next I cut a circle with my Classic Circle Nestabilities, stamped the Sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and then stamped just the tip of the campfire from the same Havin' a Pow Wow set. I finished with some Stickles on the flames, some Diamond Glaze on the owl's eyes and a black grosgrain knotted bow.

Just a couple things to mention going on at Verve this week. There's still time to do the Vintage Verve challenge over on the OCC. There's your choice of any Verve stamp set up for grabs, and you have until Friday to get your cards in, so be sure and give it a go. Also, the Think Pink Sale is in full swing. All Verve stamps are 10% off through October 31, plus we're donating 10% of all sales to the Susan G Komen for the Cure foundation in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

  21. Well, it's not quite the same but I did loosely base my card here on the sketch for this week! It was just the inspiration I needed to use these new Nestabilities! Thanks Julee!

  73. Hi Julee. I am a new visitor today to your blog. I found you through Jennifer Muraoka at Kiyomi Krafts. She posted a fabulous card in response to you Monday Mojo sketch 12. That led me to your site and I love all the fantastic sketches you have produced and your amazing cards. So of course I had to have a go and choose sketch number 58 as my first attempt. Thanks for the inspiration, I cant wait to re create more of your sketches. Take care x Natasha
