MOJO Monday is Back!! With Dandelion Wishes

One of my all time favourite challenges was Mojo Monday and I was mildly heartbroken last year when the challenge shut down after 9 years of weekly challenges! But I found out some great news this week: Julee Tilman has started up a more relaxed version of Mojo Monday on her own blog and I'm excited to be playing along for the first time in a long time! I'm busy coming up with simple but attractive birthday card designs for my Birthday Buffet class this coming Saturday and this will be one of them, featuring the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

Here's the Mojo Monday Challenge Banner:

What I especially like about these sketches is that they include measurements! How cool and useful is that?? Here's my entry:

  • I started with a Coastal Cabana cardbase and added a panel of Soft Sea Foam of 4 3/4" x 2 1/4", embossed using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder.
  • I used the single dandelion seed head stamp from Dandelion Wishes to stamp the image twice, once right on the card base and once on a 4" x 4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. I die cut the Whisper White one using the 2 1/2" Stitched Circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Using the Layering Circle Framelits, I also die cut a scallop circle matte just a little larger in Basic Black. After adhering the White circle to the Black matte I glued it partially over the Soft Sea Foam panel so that it matches the stamped image on the card base, as shown.
  • I stamped the sentiment, from Itty Bitty Birthdays (from the Occasions Catalogue) on one strip of Whisper White that was 3/8" x 2 1/2" centering it. I then cut the strip in half to separate the two words of the sentiment. and backed each half with a Basic Black strip the same size, slightly offset. I added a couple of dandelion seeds to finish off the end of the Wishes panel because Wishes is much shorter than Birthday, so leaves a big space on the right hand side that needed filling.                                                                                                                         
  • I finished by adding 3 self-adhesive sequins from the Gingham Gala Collection.
Maybe you might want to play along with Mojo Monday again, too, and spread the word around that it's back!
