Hello Everyone!! Did you see on the 15th that Power Poppy released its latest digi in their Instant Garden?? The Instant Gardeners did a GORGEOUS job of showing off this beauty and now the Bloom Brigade get to play with it!! My I introduce.....French Lilac!
As a digi, this file can be made larger or smaller to fit your project design and comes with the Thinking of You sentiment. French Lilacs come in a variety of colours, from cornflower blues, purples, pinks... and they also come in white, yellow, and red! What colour do YOU want to make them??? I've gone with a pink/purple palette for my project, I guess that's just what called out to me. Now I know most people would arrange this with the flower pointed up, but I went with the hanging down look - figured I'd be a bit different! :)
I've started with a base of purple bazzill, layered with white and topped with more purple cut with Spellbinders Tranquil Moments die. Around this I've attached a piece of silver ribbon. I've printed the French Lilac image and sentiment onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (V01, V12, V15, V91, V93, E23, E27, YG21, YG91, YG93, YG97, R24, R59). I've then used the largest Spellbinders Elegant Ovals die to cut it out and then popped it up on foam tape. To finish I've added a silver bow to the ribbon.

Hello Everyone! I have yet MORE floral gorgeousness for you today!!! This time it's the sunshiney goodness of Buttercups!! Why not send a little hello to someone you care about with these fabby sentiments and happy blooms from Hello Buttercup!
I've used a base of Marina Mist and layered with Baked Brown Sugar. Next I've taken a piece of white and stamped it with Script Background in Desert Sand. Over this I've stamped Honeycomb Background in Memento Teal Zeal. Around this I've attached some blue and white ribbons. I've stamped the flowers from Hello Buttercup in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (Y11, Y15, Y17, YG01, G40, G43, G46, B0000, B000). I've cut the buttercups out with Spellbinders Labels 28 and framed it with Baked Brown Sugar cut with Decorative Labels 8. The sentiment from Hello Buttercup is stamped in blue, cut with circle nestabilities and matted with Marina Mist cut with Lacey Circles Nestabilities. To finish I've added a bow and some clear rhinestones as shown.

Hello Everyone! The JustRite girls have another beautiful floral set for you today..... Thank You Daffodil!! They are just so bright and happy don't you think and perfect for the upcoming Northern Hemisphere Spring!
And don't miss the matching SVG Thank You Daffodil Digital Cut File!!
I love florals and this one is soooooo easy to create with whether you use the SVG file or not and bound to make a statement on any of your projects!
I've used a base of (aptly named) Daffodil Delight cardstock layered with Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. On top of this is more Daffodil Delight cut with A2 Divine Eloquence and then I've wrapped some yellow ribbon around it all. Next I've stamped Upcycled Woodgrain Background in Memento Desert Sand onto Very Vanilla and cut with Labels 28. Use the JR SVG Thank You Daffodil Digital Cut File to cut the exact shape. Next stamp the image from Thank You Daffodil in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Y21, Y35, Y38, YG11, YG13, YG17). Stamp the sentiment directly onto the background in Memento Rich Cocoa and then pop the daffodil up on foam tape.
I've made a matching journal using a Spirax Notebook and covering with a piece of random paper from deep in my stash. Down the side I've added a piece of Very Vanilla punched with a Lattice Border Punch topped with Chocolate Chip and more DP. Over this I've attached some yellow ribbon. For the feature panel, I've used a piece of Daffodil Delight topped with Very Vanilla and then used a paper piercer to pierce around the edge. Then I've followed the steps above to finish the panel.
Stamps - Thank You Daffodil, Upcycled Woodgrain (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Bleninding Card, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Misc DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Dessert Sand

Hello Everyone! Today is Day One of the JustRite Papercraft February Release! The JR Girls are showcasing a GORGEOUS Morning Glory set and a fabby background called Upcycled Woodgrain today and hope you love them as much as we do!
I just loved the Morning Glory image and decided to turn it into a Journal and Card set! For the journal, I've used a Spirax Notebook and covered the front with some Maja Designs DP, punching the edge with the Spiral Punch. Across this I've added a panel of white punched with the iron gate border punch and layered with more Maja Designs DP and wrapped some white crochet lace around it. Stamp the Reversed Crackle Background in Memento Desert Sand onto Very Vanilla and mat with Marina Mist. Attach to the previous panel and then wrap some blue ribbon around both. Stamp the Morning Glory image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and colour with Copics (B60, B63, B66, G40, G43, G46, YR30). Cut with Labels 25 and mat with Marina Mist cut with Majestic Labels 25. I've finished by adding initials and clear rhinestones.
The card is made with a base of Marina Mist layered with Very Vanilla and some Maja Designs DP. Wrap blue and white ribbons around the layers. Follow the steps above for stamping, colouring and constructing the feature panel. Stamp the sentiment in black, cut with an oval border punch and pop up on foam tape. Finish with a bow.
