Welcome to Day 3



Isn't this blog hop exciting? Today is my turn to share what I came up with using the new release stamps from JustRite.



JustRite Stamps®: JB 09700 Plant a Little Love Set

Spellbinders™ products: Circles Nestabilities®, Big Scalloped Circles Small Nestabilities®, Flower Silhouette Impressabilities™.

Copic: E13, BV08.

This is a 5" square card.

Stamp the image and border on Vanilla cardstock with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink then clear emboss. Cut/emboss using Spellbinders™ Circles Nestabilities®, then distress the edges and ink again with the Vintage Photo ink, really working it in towards the center of the image to give it a very vintage look. Color the flowers with Copic Sketch markers and add a little sparkle with Diamond Stickles

Use Core'dinations Blackberry cardstock to create the mat. Cut/emboss with Spellbinders™ Big Scalloped Circles Small #7 and emboss with Flower Silhouette Impressabilities™. Sand to bring up the detail. The color wasn't dark enough for what I wanted, so I airbrushed using the Impressabilities™ as a stencil. Distress the edges, inking with Vintage Photo. Use foam squares to pop the layers up.

The next layer is white cardstock stamped with Rubbernecker Victorian Lace background stamp using vintage photo ink and overstamping with Rubbernecker Flourish stamps using Elegant Eggplant ink. Distress and heavily ink the edges. Airbrush the white half pearls using Copic E13 and adhere one in each corner.

The card is Elegant eggplant stamped with Versmark ink and the Flourish stamps then heat embossed with clear EP. Distress the edges and ink using Vintage photo once again. For a finishing touch, I airbrushed the ribbon to match my project. The ribbon is actually ¼" white silk ribbon! Seriously, it was. Doesn't it look old?

For all the important details, visit the JustRite Blog.
