Today is the official kick off for the JustRite Stampers Pre-Inked Stamping Contest!! Click HERE for a complete list of all the Rules.
The Pre-Inked Stampers from JustRite are so much fun! For the cards I am sharing with you today I used the the 2x Stampers, they are so quick and easy to use. The feature that I like the best about the 2x Stampers is that the stamp is up inside of the holder and this allows you to set the stamp holder down on your cardstock (without getting any ink on it!) and line it up for the perfect placement and then gently push down to stamp. Also on the sides of the holder are little markers which can help with lining up the stamp.
Here are a couple of cards that I made using the 2x Stampers.
For the first card I used 2x Stampers Happy Birthday sentiment on a piece of chipboard. The flower and flourish stamp is from Fancy Pants and the technique for this card is called Bandanna from Technique Junkies.

Here is the second card that I made. For this card I used 2x Stampers Thinking of You from JustRite Stampers. I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment onto a tag that I made using the Wizard and Ribbon Tags Trio Die from Spellbinders. By the way, all of the tags from the Ribbon Tags Trio die from Spellbinders work perfectly with the 2x Stampers! LOVE that!! I also added a few Prima flowers and added little pearls to the center. Here is a quick little tip for you--if you like using pearls but would like to get a larger package and have the pearls all the same size look for pearl alphabet sticker sheets. You can peel the little pearls off and glue them onto your projects and each sheet of stickers will have a few hundred little pearls. The sticker sheet that I purchased has approximately 500 pearls on it and it was $3.99--I think that's a Fantastic deal! The flourish stamp that I used on the bird and around the edges of the card is from Prickly Pear. The bird die cut is from the NEW Spellbinders Shapeabilities Nested Bird die, there are three dies in this set. The technique on the bird is called Alcohol Inks Faux Bleaching. It has been awhile since I have done this technique but I recently seen a post on Sherry Cheever's (aka Bad Sherry) blog, Walkin' On The Bad Side! and I wanted to try out the technique again! If you like using AI you will love this technique! Sherry has a wonderful tutorial on her blog so be sure to check it out! For her tutorial Sherry used an Oval Fragment from Tim Holtz Idea-ology. I don't have any of the fragments (yet!) so I used a piece of acetate for the bird die cut.
