Stacking Sentiments Clear Stamps-JustRite Papercraft March Release

Good morning and welcome to day three of the March release from JustRite Papercraft. Today we're introducing a cool new sentiment set called Stacking Sentiments. They consist of bold typography and a mix and match feature. Some of them can be used alone or in conjunction with other sentiments in the set.

I've used three of them together to get a subway art effect using the chalkboard technique. I've taken more of a cute approach today, but they can be used on masculine cards and projects. As a matter of fact, there is a Father's Day sentiment included as well. Here's a look at them:
 There is also a matching SVG digital cut file in case you would like to cut them out.

There is also a tip sheet you can download at the JustRite website with some pointers on how to combine these and information on how to use them in tandem with today's other featured background stamp, A2 Upcycled Woodgrain Frame. Click HERE to go to the tip sheet download.

More inspiration from the JustRite team is just a click away:

There a new sale over at JustRite! See the graphic below for the details!

Thanks for visiting today. Tomorrow is the last day of the release, I hope you'll join us!

Introducing Coffee House Clear Stamps-JustRite Papercraft March Release

Happy humpday and welcome to the second day of the March release from JustRite Papercraft. Today's featured stamps are near and dear to my heart, Coffee House. I love my morning coffee (*and my afternoon coffee and my evening coffee*) and so do lots of my family and friends so this set will be in heavy rotation.

I was feeling very shabby chic the day I made this card. I know it's not your typical coffee card, but I couldn't resist! I have some more cards planned with this set and I'll share them later in the month. My coffee cup is very lady like with it's gorgeous blue floral paper. I paper pieced it by stamping it once on the patterned paper and once on white card stock. I colored the coffee and the spoon with my Spectrum Noir markers,snipped them out and glued them to the other one. I just fussy cut the coffee cup and added it to my card, then stamped the steam on the background. I love the sentiments and fonts in this set! Here's a peek:
Look at all of those wonderful images! I have so many ideas swirling around in my head. I just need some coffee to get me going.............

Visit the JustRite designers and see what they've brewed up for you *haha*

Introducing Romantic Wild Roses Clear Stamps- JustRite Papercraft March Release

Good morning everyone! Welcome to the fabulous March release from JustRite Papercraft. Spring will be here soon (I hope) and we're kicking it off with some pretty Romantic Wild Roses! I'm really excited about this set because it incorporates 2 step stamping! If you're not familiar with it, two step stamps allow you to stamp more than one layer of the same image in order to achieve a shaded look without having to color the image yourself. You simply choose the colors you want for each layer from your ink pad collection. If you don't like to color images or don't have any markers, this is perfect for you. Here's my card for you today.

I used the smaller stems to make a wreath using the different pieces that are in the stamp set. I used one of my circle dies and traced around it in pencil for my circle shape. I then stamped around the circle, staying as close to the circle as I could. After I was finished, I just erased the pencil marks. I then stamped a few of the smaller flowers in 2 shades of aqua, stamped the centers in two shades of pink, and cut them out. I added them to the right side of the wreath, using foam adhesive on the center flower for dimension. Here's a look at the set:
There's also a tip sheet that you can download on the JustRite website HERE. It has detailed instructions on how these stamps go together and gives you some examples. You can save it to your computer or print a copy and keep it with the stamps.

Here's a closeup of the details:

Vintage Rose Birthday Card

Hello friends! I hope this post finds you warm and well. If you are caught in those dreadful winter storms as of late in the US I hope you are snuggled in tight. Snow missed us by a few miles, we only had some cold, cold rain. I'm not complaining, but my daughter is driving now and I worry for her.

Today I'm sharing a birthday card. I have recently become enamored of old vintage images. I guess I should say re-enamored? Back in the early nineties, there was a little shop in a nearby town that specialized in Victorian reproduction ephemera. I loved going there to get pretty postcards and look at all of the beautiful items they carried. I still have a few things I bought back then. Unfortunately most of it is gone. I remembered how they used to carry these die cut images in sheets. I wasn't making cards at the time and had no use for them. Well, I found some for sale online recently and went crazy! Here's the first card I made using them.
  I used almost the last of my Melissa Frances Classic Elegance paper. The colors matched perfectly! I need to find some more of that and Fifth Avenue, it's becoming scarce. I've taken several die cuts and layered them to form the bouquet. I like that these are flat except for some slight embossing, I think I could send this one through the mail quite easily. The sentiment is from Birthday Wishes For You by JustRite Papercraft. 

Oh I almost forgot, if you want to know where I bought the die cuts, click here to visit the Etsy store.

That's all for today,thank you kindly for stopping over. Join me early next week for a new JustRite Papercraft release!

Easter Blessings Card

Oh dear, where did this week go? I haven't posted since Valentine's Day and I'm back with an Easter card already! I know St Patrick's Day is in between, but I have Spring fever and want to make some sweet spring cards!
I bought some very sweet vintage Easter graphics from an Etsy shop recently and couldn't wait to play with them!  The patterned papers are from Authentique, the sentiment stamp is from JustRite Papercraft's Spring Wishes set. I'm getting so much use from this set since it covers all of the Spring holidays. The usual suspects are all here as well; lace,ribbon, flowers and tons of buttons. I haven't sewn on any cards lately, so I lugged my machine out and used it too. Here's a closeup of the good stuff:
Darn, how cute are those bunnies? Thanks for stopping over today, have a great weekend!
