Mojo Monday 300 (Stampin’ Up Friday)

Good Friday morning, all!  I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July and are enjoying this lovely, long weekend.  I have a fun card to share with you today.  It features the sketch from this week’s Mojo Monday.  The fabulous Julee Tilman has graced us with another wonderful sketch…and this one is really special, because it is Mojo Monday 300!  There’s a special celebration on the blog and wonderful prizes up for grabs, so go check it out and play along. Here’s the sketch:  You know I love all those luscious layers…and here is my interpretation:

Mojo Monday 300 July 2013 03  I used the new Stampin’ Up In-Colors Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana in this 5×7 card.  I fell in  love with the fresh, fun colors the minute I saw them.  I added Stampin’ Up “Attic Boutique” designer paper (retired) to the mix and was thrilled with how well these colors played together. 

The stamped image is from the Forever Young cling stamp set.  I’ve had it for a while, but decided to break it out and use it.  I stamped baked brown sugar with the Wonderfully Worn background stamp in Pink Pirouette then overstamped the tree/swing image in Early Espresso and heat embossed with clear powder.  Mojo Monday 300 July 2013 05

The sentiment is from my new favorite “Million and One” stamp set, also stamped in Early Espresso and heat embossed.  A little paper piercing, a perky pink flower, a “Twitterpated” button and some floss and the front of the card is complete.  Here’s the interior:Mojo Monday 300 July 2013 06  …and the matching envelope:Mojo Monday 300 July 2013 01  Fresh and fun, don’t you think?

I want to take a moment to thank Julee Tilman for 300 wonderful weeks of sketchy inspiration.  I don’t always play along, but I am always inspired by her designs and have kept the Mojo Monday sketches in a file for those days when my Mojo needs a little jump start.  So, congratulations, Julee on Mojo Monday 300…and here’s to another 300 fabulous sketches.

That’s it for me today, folks.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have time to do something creative this weekend.  If you are interested in any of the Stampin’ Up products used in this project, please let me know.  I’d be more than happy to help them find their way into your craft room!

    It IS fresh and fun, just like you said! And I especially love the sentiment. In fact, pretend you just received this wonderful card with its perfect sentiment… from me to you!

    I had a swing like that as a child….my grandfather hung the ropes from a huge limb off a walnut tree…I can still see the wild violets kissed by the sunlight flying passed my feet….What a beautiful card and such a creative way to express the extra effort someone put into their act of kindness or work on a project. You have all the skills that line up perfectly to be a master in this field. Love this.
