I have two projects to share with you today. The first one is an invitation to a Christmas tea. I don't happen to have any stamps for a Christmas tea but with JustRite Font Sets I can customize the stamps to make just the right sentiment. A question that I have often been asked about JustRite Fonts is--"How do you line up the fonts so perfectly?" I thought this would be the great time to show you how I line them up. It's really very easy, I just write out what I want the word/sentiment to be and then cross off the letters from side to side until I find the center point. Also don't forget to count the spaces in between the words. Once I find the center point then I place that stamp in the wood stamper and then fill in the stamps on one side and then go to the other side. This is so much quicker and easier then putting all of the letters in and continuously moving them a little until you can get them centered. Here is a picture of all the wood stampers for the front of the card. The 2-3/8'' x 5-1/2'' Rectangular Horizontal Stamper has the first part of the sentiment on it, "Please come & sit a spell with me", using the Trompe Script Font Uppercase 25pt and Trompe Script Font Lowercase 25pt. The 2'' Wood Stamper has a center from A Little Caffeine Set, a sentiment from Holiday Demi Phrases Set at the top of the stamper and Times New Roman Font 15pt at the bottom. The 1-3/8'' x 3-1/2'' Rectangular Horizontal Stamper has Trompe Script Font Uppercase 50pt, Trompe Script Font Lowercase 50pt. Lastly the 3-1/4'' Wood Stamper has a border from the Old Fashion Christmas Set. Now I am ready to stamp. ;)
After all of the stamping is done then I lined up the sentiments and images with my Spellbinders die templates.Once all of the die cutting was done then I left the paper in the die templates and used them as a stencil to airbrush with Copic markers. First I used E74 Cocoa Brown and then I added G85 Verdigris.
I colored the images using R29 Lipstick Red, YG63 Pea Green and G85 Verdigris Copic markers.
Here is a close up picture of the images. And a few more close up pictures...Here is the finished card~
I added a few twig punch outs, red rhinestones, pearls and some ribbon.
I also stamped the other half of the sentiment on the inside of the card, "while we sip a cup of Christmas tea." I used the Trompe Script Font Uppercase 25pt, Trompe Script Font Lowercase 25pt and the 1-3/8'' x 3-1/2'' Rectangular Horizontal Stamper. The inside of the card~Christmas Tea Supply List~

The next card is one that I made for my aunt and uncle's 25th wedding anniversary.
For this card I only used the Trompe Script Font Uppercase 25pt along with the 1-3/8'' x 3-1/2'' Rectangular Horizontal Stamper but just by simply adding their names it gives the card such a personal touch.
