JustRite Challenge #073

Hello Everyone,

I'm finally back to card making and today I have another card for you.  This card will be entered into the JustRite Friday Challenge #073.  For this challenge we were to create a shaped card in any shape as long as it's NOT square!  So, I needed to create a card for my daughter, who is graduating from high school, so this is what I came up with.

I used Spellbinders Grand dies to create the card base and, inked the edges with Distress Stain. The I stamp the sentiment using JustRite stamps and layered on Spellbinders dies.  I printed the 2012 from a font on my computer because I couldn't find my JustRite Fonts. I can only guess that my fonts are packed away with my other crafting supplies.  I punch out the pennant using Epiphany Craft punches and glued to the background. The mortar board/cap was cut out from a template, I created, I inked the edges with Distress Stain, and mounted with foam squares.

I created the inner page using the next small sized Spellbinder Grand die. I inked the edges so they would standout against the card base. The pic of my daughter was cut out and mounted on black cardstock. I stamped the sentiments using JustRite stamps, cut out and mounted them on the same black card stock.

The back two pages will hold personal sentiments from me and her dad.  Well that's it for me, I need to get some ironing done.  Have a fabulous day, and I'll blog with you later.

JustRite Friday Challenge #072

******Happy Mother's Day******

Hello Everyone,

First I would like to wish all the mother's a very HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.  I hope you are enjoying your day, and that you are being completely pampered.  I will be working from 9am to 1pm, then I will be able to enjoy the rest of the day with my son and MIL.

Today's project is being entered into the JustRite's Friday Challenge #072.  For this challenge, we are to use JustRite stamps to create a 3D gift items or home decor items. These can be altered items or custom made projects but NOT just a card by itself. So I created an alter wooden box and card for my MIL for Mother's Day.

For this project, I purchased a plan wooden box, painted it Lilac, and trimmed it with Fleur De Lis Doily Accents. The pleated trim was original white, I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist so that it would coordinate with the paint color.

On the box top, I used the Rose Creations dies to create the flowers and mounted them on Label Twenty  die cuts. I stamped and cut out the top label, and stamped and cut out the sentiment from the Pennants dies. I used the same Glimmer Mist on the seam binding and made a bow.  I mounted the Label on a Lacey Oval die cut and added the swirls and feathers. I used the same products and techniques on the card.

Well, that's all for me. I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day and I'll blog with you later.
