I have to admit, I’ve been needing a little Mojo lately, so what better to start off the week than a Mojo Monday inspired card? We all go through creative slumps. While I’ve been creating and filming for our Online Community this past month, I haven’t been able to dig deep to find extra projects for the blog, which I’ll be honest – has been frustrating. Does that ever happen to you?
I look every week at a ton of challenges, hoping for a spark, but alas, the well was dry. But not this week – yesterday I think I finally broke out of my slump! I created two cards, one for today’s post – Mojo Monday and another for the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge Blog. That one you’ll see a bit later. So here this weeks sketch and my interpretation:
Creative Tips –
- For this Clean and Simple card – I created a monochromatic stamped design using the My Favorite Things stamp set Grand Peaceful Wildflowers.
- You’ll want to stamp several images to give a little variety – I used three in Sahara Sand.
- The neutral Sahara Sand color by Stampin’ Up! really stands alone while offering enough of a background sense to allow the greeting to really pop without getting lost.
- For a little pop – just like a painted accent wall, use a deep, powerful color to go along with your neutrals – here you see Cherry Cobbler, but a rich purple or deep earthy orange would also look great.
- The script die cut Thanks is from Simon Says Stamp.
- Staggering your banner lengths help to give a strong emphasis to that part to let them stand out without getting lost.
- As seen in the video in the VIP Community (Project and Class online video Resource Library) you really see how the sequins and pearls are a needed accent.
- Finally, something quirky about the card is that the card front, not the card base opens.

Let me know in the comments if you too get stumped with blocked Mojo. What do you do? None of my regular go to remedies were working for me! Have a great week.
