JustRite Stampers Blog Hop

Today is another JustRite Blog Hop and I hope you will join in the fun! Here is a list of all the JustRite Design Team Members so you can check out all of the beautiful creations they have to share with you. Also don't forget to check out the JustRite Blog!!
The stamp set I used for today's projects is the newly released Friendship Set and it is available for purchase. The Friendship Set contains 6 Borders & Centers measuring 3-1/4'' diameter. As you will notice in the Blog Hop today most of the NEW JustRite stamp sets have so many beautiful images in the centers that can be colored. I love all the new images!

Here is a picture of the Friendship stamp set.In this picture you can see the 6 Borders & Centers with the 3-1/4'' Wood Stamper.Here is a picture after I did a little cutting and trimming with the Centers. Now if you don't want to trim your stamps that is perfectly fine. I have had some people tell me they are too scared or nervous to cut the stamps for fear they might mess them up. It's really just a personal choice and I like to trim the stamps because I find I can use them in even more ways. After trimming the Centers I now have 12 stamps for the center that I can mix and match.

Here is a picture of the projects I made to share with you today. I made a framed art piece, a candle and a card for a gift set.Before I get started I want to let you know that I used the same supplies (stamps, ink, paper...) for all of the projects. Here is a close up of the stamp image and sentiment that I used for the framed art piece and the frame before I altered it. The shadowbox frame came from the $ store.I wanted to add some depth to the tree so I applied two shades of green ink using a cotton ball.

The 1st color:The 2nd color:Then I applied brown ink around the rest of the stamp.After I stamped the image I cut/embossed the center using the Wizard and Standard Circles Sm. S4-116 die template. Then I left the cardstock in the die template and used it as a stencil and colored the inside edges using the Copic airbrushing system.I stamped the border again with brown ink onto Medium Spring Green cardstock and then cut/embossed using the Wizard and Standard Circles Lg. S4-114 die template. I also cut/embossed the Kaleidoscope Pendant S4-207 die template for the last layer. For the background paper I used My Mind's Eye-Designer Paper Laundry Line Natural "My Boy". I love this paper with all of the different shades of green and brown and a little sparkle too! I also added some tiny green rhinestones to the tree and foam tape to each of the center layers.
The last thing I did to the frame was to add some rub-ons to the glass.Here's a couple of pictures of the finished frame.I also made a matching card and candle. As you can see from the picture of the card I changed the center image by moving the tree to the top and adding the word friends at the bottom. The candle was done by stamping on tissue paper and heat setting it into the candle.Supplies~
