Mojo Madness Contest #63

Happy December! Since it's the first Monday in a new month, that means it's time for another Mojo Madness Contest! This one embraces the white space, and I'd love to see y'all do the same! :)

How to enter: Use the sketch to create a project and then post a link to your creation in the comments of this post.

Deadline: Monday, December 8 at Noon Mountain Time (There's a clock on the sidebar with the official Poetic Artistry time).

Prize: This is a judged contest, so my two favorite entries will each win their choice of any Verve Stamps set (up to $24)!

The winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 10. Sound like fun? Well, let's get started! If you upload your cards to Splitcoast Stampers or Paper Craft Planet, please use keyword Mojo63 (no space between Mojo and 63) so they're all together. As always, you can use any stamps or products your heart desires. Just have fun and show me how mojolicious you are! I can't wait to see everyone's entries!

My sample card uses the new Deck the Hall set by The Cat's Pajamas. I just love this image of Sprinkle up in the tree. Here's what's in it...


Stamps: Deck the Hall, Elegant Christmas (sentiment)
Paper: Wonderland (Cosmo Cricket)
Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine), Copic markers & Spica Glitter Pens

Accessories: Classic Rectangle (Nestabilities), ribbon slider (We R Memory Keepers), Doily Lace Punch (Martha Stewart), Swiss Dots (Cuttlebug), black grosgrain, Diamond Glaze

  2. ....beautiful sample, Julee. I hope I find time to do this one as it is a great sketch (they always are).

  3. Cute card! I can't imagine why a cat in a Christmas tree would appeal to you.... I used to have a tree-climber - she would climb about half way up the inside of the tree and STARE OUT at me when I was sitting on the couch. Creepy green cat eyes shining out of the tree! LOL! Sandi would just lay underneath the tree and chew the corners off all the presents. Yeah. And the ribbons and bows too. I haven't had a package with a ribbon or bow under my tree since 1987....

  8. Great sketch and card! I came by quickly to see the sketch. When I was done I came back to get the keyword. That's when I noticed we were to embrace the white space... and it was a contest. Oops.

    I left a message for you on the Verve forum. Thank you so much for your note and gift (I used that set 1st!!!) The note was so special to me and I'll be writing about why on my Bipolar blog tonight without using names... unless you want me to. I can always edit.

    Thanks so much for your thoughtfulness! Hugs!

  15. Here's my first card for this week's challenge. Uploaded to SCS instead of my blog this time.
    I don't think the pictures came out well. The white base for the card looks much better IRL!
