JustRite Don't Forget Bouquet
Hello Everyone! Today I was able to sit down in my craftroom and have a bit of a play with a couple of new toys from JustRite Papercraft! Sigh - don't you just *love* new toys!! :) The stamp set I've used is called Multi Step Don't Forget Bouquet - it has LOTS of mix and match sentiments for all sorts of occasions and I know most people would make the hearts pink or red......but I decided to go with blue! :)
I've used a base of kraft and layered with Pool Party card cut with Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor. Next I've cut a piece of white and kraft chomping out the corners with a corner punch. To one side of the kraft piece I've stamped the large heart bouquet image from Multi Step Don't Forget Bouquet in white ink and then added colour with the multi step pieces in blues and greens. I've then taken the small heart image in the set and stamped those in green and then I found that adorable birdie and stamped it in Rich Cocoa. It was at this point that I told myself to put the stamp set down because there are so many bits to play with it's a bit hard to stop!! I've then added a little extra colour using white and green watercolour pencils. Around these panels I've attached a sheer ribbon and a blue/green grosgrain ribbon. I've stamped the sentiment (actually two different stamps since you mix and match the sentiments in the set) in Rich Cocoa across the bottom.
THEN I had a play with a new product that arrived in my mailbox - it's called Tonic Studios Nuvo Collection Crystal Drops.......OH MY, how awesome are THESE!! A little squeeze (you may need to put a pin in the top for the first use) and you can create three dimensional pearly beads in whatever size you desire! Be still my beating heart!! There are many colours to choose from however the one that matched my project perfectly is called Neptune and I've added several drops to my project to give it that finishing touch!
Now thankfully I have a lovely little selection of these Crystal Drops, so be prepared to see A LOT more of these!!! :)
