Hello Everyone! Today is the last day of the JustRite Papercraft October release! I hope you've loved all the sets as much at the DT have and of course we've saved my favourite for last!! PEONIES!!! Who can resist beautiful blooms that you can use to create a bouquet in a mason jar??!! Swooooon!! And just to make that little bit more irresistible.... you can buy the matching Peonies Cutting Dies!! Swoooooon again!!!
I've used a base of pink card, layered with cream card and some DP. Next I've cut some pink card with Decorative Labels 8. The next panel is a piece of cream cut with Tonic Studios Royal Frame with Butterfly Insert Die. I didn't cut the butterfly panel, only the outer and can I say, all the pieces just FALL OUT....OMGosh, such an easy clean up!! Ooops, where was I? I actually ran a wide piece of ivory ribbon through the Tonic Die and then attached a piece of pink trim over the top. Now the fun part! I actually stamped and masked my images from Peonies to create the bouquet in the top of the mason jar. Once I did that, I coloured it all with Copics (RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66, G40, G43, G46, YG97, B0000, B000, B21, B91, B93, Y21) and added a touch of Kirarina 2Win Lemon Yellow to the center. Because I masked it, I had to fussy cut it all and then popped it up on foam tape. Why did I fussy cut it when there are Peonies Cutting Dies??? Well, mine hadn't arrived in time, but you know I'll be using them next time!! ;-)

Hello Everyone! Are you ready for a new fun and funky set?? Today JustRite Papercraft is releasing their latest stamp set.......say hello to Pinwheel Daisies! There are many flower stamps in this set to play with and you can just imagine all the effects and combos you can create with them!! And if that wasn't exciting enough....... you can also buy the dies to match, Pinwheel Daisies Die Set!! I love the funky retro feel of this set and I'm sure you will too!! :)
I've used a base of Pool Party and then cut some Daffodil Delight and X-press It Blending Card using A2 Curved Borders One. I've then stamped a couple of the images from Pinwheel Daisies in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the Blending Card and coloured with Copics (RV52, Y15, BG10, BG11, BG13). After that I decided the white was a bit stark, so I sponged a little Antique Linen around the images and attached to the yellow base. Around these layers I've added some sheer ribbon and popped it up on foam tape. The sentiment from Morning Splendor has been stamped at the bottom as shown.
Stamps - Pinwheel Daisies, Morning Splendor (JustRite)

So, what have I created today? I got in the colouring groove and pulled out Wreaths Plain and Fancy and how much fun is this to colour!!
I've used a base of So Saffron and layered with white and some Christmas Carol DP. Down the side I've attached a piece of green ribbon and then added another piece of Christmas Carol paper across the card front. I've stamped the wreath and candle accent from Wreaths Plain and Fancy in the middle in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (Y21, Y26, Y28, G40, G43, G46, G82, G85, G99, E51). I've cut it out with Small Circle Nestabilities and matted with So Saffron cut with Delightful Circles and popped it up on foam tape. I've stamped the sentiment, also from Wreaths Plain and Fancy, in yellow and cut it and matted it with green card and also popped it up on foam tape. To finish I've added a couple of rhinestones to the corner.

Hello Everyone! It's day three of the JustRite Papercraft October Release! Today the JustRite girls are showcasing a dreamy new set called Morning Splendor! I just looooooove this with it's soft flowing blooms and swirly tendrils floating about!! You'll love the different images in this set and all the pretty sentiments that go with it!! I know I'll be using this one a LOT!!
I decided to let the image from Morning Splendor take center stage and stamped it on a large piece of X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (B60, B63, B66, G40, G43, G46, E21, YR30, YR31) and added some silver detail with a Kirarina Wink Silver Pen. The sentiment, also from Morning Splendor, has been stamped in the top corner and accented with a yellow Copic Marker. I've matted the panel with cream card, punching the bottom with the Deco Fan border punch. This has been placed on the card base of blue bazzill, cream card, two pieces of Graphic 45 DP and a strip of blue ribbon with a notched end. To finish I've added a couple of buttons.

Hello Everyone! It's time for the JustRite Papercraft October Release!! If you missed yesterday's peek you can find that HERE! Today I am actually using one of the stamps from yesterday's set called Grand Wedding Wishes, as well as one from today's brand new set called Wedding Inner Sentiments! You know all those times when you want to put a little something inside a special card like a wedding and can't think of the words? Well Wedding Inner Sentiments is just for you!!
To create the front of my card I used a base of white, layered with Soft Sky, some Maja Design DP and more white cut with A2 Tranquil Moments. Across this is some white ribbon topped with Soft Sky cut with the smaller die from Tranquil Moments. I've used a slightly darker card cut with Stately Circles and layered with with Soft sky and then white stamped with Tuxedo Black using Grand Wedding Wishes. To finish I added a bow, button and cord and a few clear rhinestones.
For my inside, I've taken a strip of Maja Design paper, matted with the darker blue card and punched the border with Deco Fan border punch. I've added the sentiment from Wedding Inner Sentiments to the inside by stamping it directly to the card in Memento Summer Sky - such a pretty blue to tie it all together - leaving some space for a sweet note for the happy couple!
Can't wait to see what the JR Girls have created with this set?? Me neither! You can find all the JR inspiration at the following blogs!!

Hello Everyone! It's New Release Time from Power Poppy!! WOOHOO!! Today's the first day, so you haven't missed a thing and we are kicking off with a fabby new set called Botanical Tree. There will be more Christmas goodness through the week so make sure you pop by the Power Poppy Blog through to Sunday to see what goodies they have in store for you this festive season!
Usually I am drawn to the larger image in a set, but today I really liked the 'JOY' sentiment and this sweet little Poinsettia image. I have to admit, I'm more than a little fond of the poinsettia for Christmas! I've stamped the sentiment in green ink and the poinsettia from Botanical Tree in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card. I've coloured the flower in Copics (R32, R35, R37, R89) and added touches of Gold Kirarina Wink pen to the centre and fussy cut. I've created a tag using a die cut of green card then layered with white and some Echo Park Very Merry Christmas paper. I've added another strip of the same paper and then some gingham ribbon underneath. I've also pierced a row top and bottom of the paper. I've cut the sentiment out with Labels 33 and popped it up on foam tape. I've then attached the poinsettia as shown, added a couple of clear rhinestones and tied a gingham ribbon to the top. The bag is a basic brown bag with a piece of Very Merry paper matted with green attached to the front! Quick and easy!! :)
Stamps - Botanical Tree (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Green
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Old Olive, White, Echo Park Very Merry Christmas DP

Hello Everyone! Not only is it Power Poppy Friday - it's the first Friday of the month, so that makes it Power Poppy, Power and Spark Challenge time! This month our lovely hostess with the most-ess is JULIE!! Julie has challenged us to a “Bits & Pieces” challenge, which encourages everyone to use just bits and pieces of a stamp image. Stamp a part of the image off the side, punch a part of it out, die cut off the edge. Basically, anything goes if you use just a portion of the image on your card! How fun is that??!! Don't forget by playing along, you could win a stamp set of your choice! For all the deets and how to link up and play along, pop on over to the Power Poppy Blog!
I have used the Asters Abuzz Digi stamp and enlarged it a LOT! You may notice there are a lot more bees than if you just cropped the image.....well I did a bit of Photoshop magic and borrowed the bee at the bottom of the original image, resized it to three different sizes and placed them on the image as shown! Thought a sentiment like 'Bee Love' needed lots of bees! :) I also placed the digi sentiment onto my custom made image, but changed the colour to yellow first by using THIS totally awesome tutorial by Julie! (I have this page permanently bookmarked as a reference!)
So, once I had the digi image the way I wanted it, I've printed it off onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copic Markers (lots of Copic markers - sorry I was in the colouring zone and forgot to note them all down). I've cut it out with Labels 8 and matted it with Pool Party card cut with Decorative Labels 8. I've placed this on a layer of white and attached some yellow ribbon as shown. I've popped this on a piece of folded Pool Party card and finished by adding some bling!
Let's see what the Bloomies have for you today!!
