JustRite Garden Tour Blog Hop 1 - Sweet Pea

Good Morning! Today JustRite Stampers is having a Garden Tour Blog Hop 1 and I hope you will join in the hop and take a little time to visit JustRite Stampers Blog and each of the designers to see their beautiful creations. I have a link list at the bottom of this post to the JustRite Blog and the Design Team Members.

For my card today I am using stamps from two of the NEW sets, My Garden and Seeds of Kindness. The My Garden stamp set fists the 3-1/4'' Round Stamper and comes with 4 Designer Centers and 4 Interchangeable Borders.The Seeds of Kindness stamp set fits the 1-5/8'' Round Stamper and comes with 6 Centers that have sentiments and 6 Interchangeable Borders. The stamp set will also fit the 2'' Round and 2'' Square Stampers.

Here is the card I created using both My Garden and Seeds of Kindness stamp sets.I started by stamping the image of the Sweet Pea from the My Garden stamp set using black ink. I stamped the image twice and colored with Copic markers and Spica Glitter (as shown). For one of the images I cut/embossed the center using the Wizard™ and Standard Circles Large S4-114 die template. I cut out the flower images on the second one and used foam tape and applied them on top of the die cut with the floral image. For the border I stamped the image using gold pigment ink, gold embossing powder and a heat tool to heat set the embossing powder. Then I sprayed Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and set aside to dry. Next I used the Flourish Impressabilities™ I2-1009 along with Post-it Craft Paper to emboss the design into the paper. The Post-it Craft Paper has an adhesive backing and it also has a white core and it works perfectly for embossing and then you can lightly sand to remove the top color from the paper and have the white core show. Here is a close-up of the embossing. I also created a little tag down in the bottom corner using one of the sentiments from Seeds of Kindness.I stamped the sentiment using gold pigment ink and then added gold embossing powder and heat set to emboss.Then I cut/embossed the sentiment using the Wizard™ and Labels One S4-161 die template. After I had the die cut made I left the cardstock in the die template and airbrushed through the template using it as a stencil. **NOTE I have received several emails asking about the stickers on my Copic airbrush. The stickers are Inanimate Stickers--have some fun with the inanimate objects in your life and give them some character. Here is a link to the stickers--->HERE. It's a wonderfully fun site! Jason and Kim were guest speakers at our church this past fall--very inspirational!!**I also cut/embossed one of the tags from the Fancy Tags S4-235 die template set and place that in behind the label. I also added some ribbon, trim and tiny rhinestones.
