JustRite Papercraft - New Release Part 3

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Today has been a rainy, soggy day here at our NC mountain house where we are currently staying.  The steam is rising up from the hills and you can barely see the mountains behind the house.  I'm going to share a few pretty pics down below for you to enjoy :)

But first!  Let me tell you about some of the products I've used to create both of these cards for JustRite's new release.  Up above, I'm featuring this really fun Chicken Wire Background Stamp which is brand new.  Other JustRite products I've used to make this cute card:

My next card features the trees, grasses and rock from the Multi-Step Landscape Elements clear stamp set and the dies are from the With Sentiments Die Set.  I've added a few acrylic dots and some sky shading behind the trees.  I think this is a nice peaceful sympathy card to use in those difficult times.

I've entered the following challenges with my card:

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  And now for our rainy mountain view.  This is the backyard, everything is so lush and green this summer as we've had a tremendous amount of rain.  Normally you can see the mountains crisp and clear, but not today.

JustRite Papercraft New Release Part 2

Hi again, here's another card I've made showing products from the latest release from JustRite Papercraft.  I'm again, showing this gorgeous Text Background stamp, only this time I haven't heat embossed it, I stamped it and then distressed the edges to look like old paper.  I love this technique combined with roughing up the edges of the paper, so vintage looking!

I've also used this gorgeous new Multi-Step Poppy Clear Stamp Set, aren't those flowers just perfect with that little glittery dragonfly buzzing around them?  I finished the card with a few sequins and gold twine!

The items I've used on this card are linked below, thanks for stopping and enjoy some shopping!  lol

JustRite New Product Release Part 1

Hi Everyone, I'm here today showing off a few cards that I've made for the new JustRite release!  I've linked all the JustRite products below for your shopping convenience!

So on this card, I distress inked the background in a few of my favorite colors, then used the new "Text Background" stamp with white embossing powder and heated it up.  The rest of the design uses the dies linked below along with some twine and pearls.  Just a simple and colorful design!  I hope you've enjoyed seeing it and thank you for stopping by!

Gina Marie Designs Seahorse and Starfish

Hi everyone, I've been in the middle of a move and yes, that means all my supplies are packed right now.  However, I had been way behind on my blogging, so I thought I'd use this time to catch up here and share some things I've made with you.

Today I'm showing you 2 new dies in Gina Marie Designs line.  It seems like sea life is a really popular thing right now and for great reason.  These warm sunshiney months call for designs like this, don't you think?

So here's a fun and simple card you can make.  I started by distress inking my background.  I used tumbled glass and mustard seed, but you can use any colors you like :)  I cut my seahorses out of the distressed panel and then cut a few layers of cardstock to glue to the back of them and pop them up.  In person, you can see this a bit easier than what shows here.  Oh!  And while I had the seahorses cut out, I sprinkled my distress background with water to make the big bubbles!  Then I distress inked the star fish, I just love how it pops next to the sentiment.  The sentiment is by Hero Arts, love that font! The whole card probably took me 10-15 minutes.  I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by, come again soon!

WhipperSnapper Designs Umbrella and Slicker

I've got one more card to show you that I made over the weekend.  Someone in my family is under the weather right now, so I made this little pick me up of a card to mail off today.  (on the inside, the sentiment I stamped says, "sunny skies are ahead") #WhipperSnapperDesigns #UmbrellandSlicker

Gina Marie Designs Birch Tree Die

Happy Monday, omgosh I've got a lot of work to do today, not the fun kind either.  So before I dive into that, I grabbed a cup of hot black coffee and decided to show off a card I made last night using this AWESOME new Birch Tree die by Gina Marie Designs.

I'd initially planned to make a night or winter scene with this cluster of birch, but my mind was drawn back to days on the farm, in that grove of birch trees with the sun streaming down onto the browning earth.  The fall air was crisp and most of the leaves had fallen.

I masked off the frame and then sponged on some Weathered Wood distress ink.  Then I mixed some Black Soot distress ink and water and flicked it with a stiff brush on the trees to create a birch-like pattern.  Short of sitting and painting on the stripes, I think this gives a real-ish effect and doesn't take nearly the amount of time.

I had a lovely time creating this scene!  I've linked the products below for your shopping convenience.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
