JustRite's challenge 20 this week is to create a card based upon their sketch,using a circle shape.

I chose to create a gate fold card which I embossed with D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. I stamped the roses from the Beautiful Blossoms oval stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers, adding a little Spica pens for gloss. I used a Nestabilities Circle die, Scalloped Circle die and Pendant die.

Cardstock: DCWV, Prism, American Crafts
Embossing: Cuttlebug
Stamp: Justrite
Ink: Memento
Pens: Copic, Spica



JustRite's challenge 19 this week is to create a Christmas card and get a start on this year's cards.

I used the Harmony Classic Oval Stamper II Ensemble and stamped Believe to create a background for my images. I then embossed the Believe background with the Cuttlebug Christmas numbers embossing folder and, using my ink tool, I applied both Ranger Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick across the embossed cardstock. I then stamped Believe on a Nestabilities Fancy Tag and attached it with jeweled brads.

Do you know that Scrapbookpal has an amazing assortment of Cricut cartridges in stock (among tons of other products, of course). Do you realize that they ship same day and that purchases over $25.00 in the U.S. ship free? That is an amazing deal. You need to check them out today.



What do you get when you combine Prima goodness with GinaK stamps? An amazing card!!! I love this Prima paper and decided to cut out the birds and foliage to make it pop on my card. I embossed a sheet of Prism cardstock with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and popped the cut out on top. Using GinaK's Friends stamp set, I stamped the sentiment on cardstock, then used my Nestabilities to cut it out. A little Stickles on the flowers and some Kaiser pearls on the sentiment were the finishing touches!!


Mr. & Mrs.

I decided to create a 2nd card for Justrite Stampers challenge this week. A different take on the sketch challenge. I used the "Mr. & Mrs." from the Harmony Classic Circle Stamper II set. I embossed some white cardstock, added a transparency on top and stitched it together. I used my Spellbinders dies for the frame.

I believe it is also a perfect card for the newlyweds to be at Simon Says Stamp - congrats to Domi and Uli.

You're the best Mom

It's another challenge at Justrite Stampers and this week it's a sketch challenge. Gotta love sketches for getting you to try something new!!! I flipped the sketch to get the look I wanted.

I used the hydrangea from the Thinking of You stamp set and colored it with my copics. Using Prima paper, I embossed it with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder, then used the Quickutz Nesting dies to cut my image. The sentiment is an Inkadinkadoo stamp. Some Making Memories bling brads finished it off.


You Hold the Key

is holding a design team call and I am submitting this layout for the call. It features my very handsome nephew all dressed for his sister's wedding.

Scrapbookpal is a website that carries a huge amount of scrapbook products at very reasonable prices! Check out the store, they have a lot of new products to share.

I used the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge for my title and the flourish, then used the Cuttlebug Floral Screen embossing folder on each for some dimension. I used a Martha Stewart punch and my Fiskars Threading Water punch along the bottom edge. Autumn Leaves stamps were used as a faux stitch across the top of the layout. Hero Arts letter stamps finished the title and some Prima flowers nicely accented the flourish.
