A Day in the Country-JustRite Challenge 42 Two Looks

This week's JustRite Friday Challenge #042 is a sketch, sponsored by Inchie Arts.   A Day in the Country is JustRite's new Cling set.  I thought this would be perfect as a fall card or perhaps that masculine birthday you need at times.  The new cling stamp just perfect.  Copic markers (to many to name) were used for the color. I used the Spellbinder squares  for my main cuts.   I decided to use the leaves from the set to make a border, mounted on brown by Bazzill and green by Paper Cuts.  The stripe is from Imaginisce: Dino-roar-Petrified Wood.  I added a little bling from AMuse to the main image.  Distress Ink Antique Linen was used in this project as well.  Not being happy with my leaf version of this card I also did it with a plain border.   I do hope you enjoy my very simple cards.

Groovy Snow Person

I really like this set of stamps from JustRite as you can see.  I plan to use it for several of my holiday cards.  This one was made with a little challenge from a friend to incorporate a doily into the card.  I did this by painting glitter glue on it which is hard to see in this picture.  The paper is from Graphic 45, the coloring is Copic of course and Spellbinders for the cuts.  I think the ribbon is by May Arts.  Hope you enjoy

Autumn Colors

JustRite Friday Challenge 040: Colors of Fall, Sponsored by Flower Soft!   The JustRite challenge this week is to use fall colors.  Well I used burgandy, orange and gold to create this card.   Using a Spellbinder 15 die I cut Bazzill gold and then  stamped the sentiment  from Natures Nested Sentiments with Memento Rich Cocoa.  The edges of this were distressed with Aged Mahogany.  Next I cut Bazzill gold and burgandy with a Spellbinder 16 die to make the framing.  This was mounted on paper from Graphic 45 and mounted on  burgandy card stock.  The ribbon was white from May Arts and colored using Distress Inks:  Aged Mahogany, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint randomly.  The inside(posted to the above right) was stamped on gold with another sentiment from the Natures Nested Sentiments.  This was cut with a Spellbinder oval and mounted on orange cut with a Spellbinder oval scallop.  The corn is from Autumn Harvest and  colored with Copic markers R29, R89, E07, E08, Y08, Y38, YR04, YR18 and distressed with aged mahogany.  Hope you enjoy.

Give Thanks

This week's JustRite Friday Challenge #039 is all about giving thanks and challenges you to make a Thanksgiving or thank you card or project!  I decided to make a simple Thank You card.  You always need these in your stash.  I used two sets from JustRite to complete the card:  Favorite Occasions Set and Baroque Nested Frames and Occasions.  I used both sides of the Imaginisce paper Go for Baroque.  A small piece was embossed with the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy and then cut with Spellbinders Labels 15 to frame my image and sentiment.  Distress Ink Antique Linen was added as well.  The flower is from Bazzill and the tack from K& C Company.  Copic Markers were used to color my image.  Hope you enjoy

Trick or Treat

JustRite Friday Challenge #038, sponsored by Copic, is to make a fun Fall holiday 3D project!  This could be Halloween treats, Fall decorations, Thanksgiving table decorations, etc. using your JustRite stamps.  So I found a cute pattern for a purse bag on the internet (free)  ( and decided to make a treat bag out of it.  The only Halloween stamp I have is from the JustRite Favorite Occasions Set so a pumpkin it would be.  I used Spellbinder circles to cut and emboss the stamped images.  Well my pumpkin with the help of my Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge became a spider on my bag.  The paper is from The Girls Paperie and the ribbon from my stash (might be May Arts).  I then decided to add a small band using again paper from The Girls Paperie and just the pumpkin image from the JustRite Set around a piece of candy that will go into the bag.  I used the following Copic Markers to color the two images E35,  E41, E99, Y08,  YG95, YR04, YR07, YR65 and 110.  (I get a little carried away in my colors)  I used Distress Antique Linen on both images.  Hope you enjoy.
