Another JustRite Valentine's Card and CHA Sneak Peek
Here is another Valentine's card I made today using some of the NEW products from JustRite Stampers that will be introduced at CHA.Do you notice anything from the picture? How about a lowercase font? Yep, that's right now the New Times Roman font set that we all love is also going to be available in lowercase letters! Also being introduced at CHA will be two New Vertical Stampers. I am so excited about both of these new items, they will allow for so many more possibilities and creating with a personal touch!
Here is a close-up picture of the New lowercase New Times Roman font set from JustRite Stampers.Here is a picture with the New Large Vertical Stamper.
I also want to tell you a little about the stamps that are mounted on the Vertical stamper and which sets they are from. The uppercase letters are from the Special Occasion Monogram Stamper Kit which includes the 1-5/8'' Harmony Classic Circle Stamper I. The lowercase letters are from the NEW, New Times Roman font set and the flourishes are from the Harmony Classic Circle Stampers III Stamp Ensemble 3-1/4'' Diameter. The flourishes were cut from one of the centers in the Harmony Classic Circle Stampers III Stamp Ensemble.
Here is a picture of the center before it was cut (bottom left).And here is a picture after the center was cut (bottom left). Now you can see where the two flourish stamps came from. Okay, on to the card, I started out with some cardstock from WorldWin, Heritage Black cardstock for the card base and then I cut a mat from Dark Racy Raspberry cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using Special Occasion Monogram Stamper Kit which includes the 1-5/8'' Harmony Classic Circle StamperI, lowercase letters are from the NEW, New Times Roman font set and the flourishes are from the Harmony Classic Circle Stampers III Stamp Ensemble 3-1/4'' Diameter Memento, Tuxedo Black ink unto white cardstock . Then using the Wizard and the NEW Labels Four S4-190 die templates from Spellbinders (also to be introduced at CHA!) I made a diecut for the sentiment. After I had the diecut cut and embossed I took a sponge and using the same tuxedo black ink I inked inside the die template. By doing this is softens up the stark white, adds some depth and also leaves you with a nice crisp white edge. Then I made another diecut using the next size up of the Lables Four S4-190 die templates with Racy Raspberry cardstock from WolrdWin and I also inked inside the die template with black ink. I wanted to add one more layer so I made another diecut using the Curved Mega Rectangles S5-006 die templates and inked inside the die. I layered all of the diecuts as shown in the picture using foam tape. I also added another diecut to the side of the card and I think this is going to be one of my favorite NEW die templates from Spellbinders, Classic Lace Border S7-014 (to be introduced at CHA). I thought the Classic Lace Boarder S7-014 die template would match up perfectly with the flourishes from the Harmony Classic Circle Stampers III Stamp Ensemble 3-1/4'' Diameter. They are very complimenting to each other! The lace border diecut was made using Elan Metallics, Obsidian cardstock from WorldWin. I have to tell you this cardstock is so beautiful and when you emboss it and then lightly sand it, it looks amazing!! Sanding it will take off some of the metallic and leave the solid color but it really makes the embossing pop! Another fun thing about the lace border diecut is that you are left with all of these fun little shapes and one of them looks like a spade. You will be able to see in the picture I took four of these and added then to the Racy Raspberry Label diecut for little embellishments.I also wanted to show you the corners on the card. I stamped little flourishes into each corner. I found the easiest was to do this is to ink up your stamp and have the rubber facing up and then line up your paper and carefully press down. I also added some rhinestones for a touch of bling and a little ribbon.Supplies~
