JustRite Friday Challenge #037

This week the JustRite Friday Challenge 037 is a sketch challenge.  I decided to use "tinsel and twig" from Girls Paperie for my paper with the solid from Bazzill.  The focus stamp is from the JustRite Christmas Nested Sentiments with a little pinecone colored with copics enhancement from the Holiday Cheer set.   Snowflake gems from Hero Arts were mounted on a strip that was cut with the Martha Stewart modern garland punch.   A small Hero Arts snowflake is mounted on the circle that was cut with Spellbinders.  The dotted border is the back side of the main card paper.  A red stickles  berry was added along with a little Star Dust stickles on the pinecone itself.  A glitter pen was used on the ribbon and a green ribbon was added from May Arts.  Hope you enjoy.

Joy this Christmas

Today's JustRite Friday Challenge #036 is to use this color combination plus you were to add an embellishment you have made.

Easel view

For this challenge I decided to make an easel card using the Justrite Christmas Nested Sentiments as the focal point.  This was stamped on ivory paper with Memento ink and then cut with a Spellbinder octagon die.  A Black frame was cut and mounted on the ivory paper.  The octagon was mounted on paper from Cosmo Cricket from their Mitten Weather Mini Deck.    The fleur was made  freehanded using Amuse pretty pearls black.  The flower was cut from the Cosmo Cricket paper and the ivory card stock with the large scallop dies from Spellbinder and crumbled.  The edges of the flower were distressed with Ranger Distress Black Soot and held together with an ivory pearl brad from American Crafts.  A clear button was mounted over a cute little snow lady colored with Copic markers from the JustRite Holiday Cheer set and placed on Cosmo Cricket paper to add a little festive touch to the card.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the lattice on the base. Hope you enjoy.

Heartfelt Creations

I just had to share this card which was made using a design similar to one from Heartfelt Creations the maker of the stamps used.  This is a new company at my LSS Fond Memories and they are so much fun to use.  I made this card for Fond Memories.  A simple card using Copic markers, A Spellbinder oval and Paper Cut paper.  Three stamps were used (and I do not have their name) to finish the card. To finish off I used a little Distress Antique Linen and some Sparkly fluff from Our Craft Lounge.   Hope you enjoy.

Xmas Snapshots

Xmas Snapshots by Penny Black was made using the Mojo 155 sketch challenge and the Shabby Tea Room Challenges.  This card was made with The Girls Paperie "Tinsel and Twig" paper, Copic Markers and Our Craft Lounge "Sparkly fluff-Sugar"  I stamped the image with Memento black and colored with Copic Markers and cut out with a large scallop Spellbinder die.  I used Ranger Distress "Antique Linen to distress the image while still in the die.  The white on the hat was enhanced with the Sparkly fluff as well as the snow on the greeting tag.  The ribbon was from my stash.  What a simple card.  Must have been as I made two posts today.  Hope you enjoy.

JustRite Friday Challenge 035: Christmas in September

JustRite Friday Challenge 035: Christmas in September is sponsored by Spellbinders.  The challenge is to make a Christmas/holiday tag with your JustRite stamps.  Spellbinders dies are the PERFECT tool for making tags -- most any of their die shapes work great to make a tag shape!  (But they are not a requirement for this challenge). For my project two JustRite stamp sets were used:  Holiday Cheer (the front image)  and From Our House Set (back of the tag).  Graphic 45 has an 8 x8 Christmas Past pad that I selected two patterns from.  This is great for when you have a paper you really like but the image is to large.  Several companies are coming out with these pads for making cards.  Several Spellbinder dies were used to complete the project. Two new sets were used:  Heirloom Ornaments and Beaded Circles.  Other Spellbinder dies used included a portion of an older snowflake, scallop circle and a square.  Ranger Distress, Antique Linen was used on the edges.  Copic Markers were used to color the images.  I selected a gold ribbon, a small gem stone and a glitter brad from my stash to finish the tag.  Since this is a tag I have finished  both sides.  Hope you enjoy

Christmas Fun

Playing around with the idea of glitter on a card led to the creation of this simple card.  When I first made the card it was not for the JustRite challenge 034, but I decided to share it anyway.  The stamp is from the JustRite Christmas Ornaments released in August. The ornament was colored with Copic Markers and stickles glitter glue was used for the sparkle.   The new Spellbinder die Beaded Circles was used to mount the ornament on and glitter glue added to where the pearl effect is.   The paper is Glitter Board and a challenge to use since it is so thick.  To finish off the card a simple bow was added.  Hope you enjoy.
