JustRite Papercraft New Release Day Four - Christmas Background Stamps

Hello everyone!  Welcome to day four of the New Releases for JustRite Papercraft!  What do you think of the New Releases?  Are you loving them?  I know I am! ;-) 

For today's New Release the Design Team will be sharing projects with two New Christmas Background stamps.  Here is the CL-04715 Holly Frame Background Stamp and this is the one that I used on my card.

Here is the card I designed using CL-04715 Holly Frame Background Stamp.  I also used CR-04595 Christmas Vintage Lables Four for the sentiment.  I stamped the image using gold pigment ink and used gold embossing powder.  For the coloring I used Distress Markers and then did a watercolor wash.

Here is a close up of the embossing and watercolor wash.  I love the soft colors.  

Here is a close up of the sentiment.  I used CR-04595 Christmas Vintage Lables Four for the sentiment.  To create the little cluster with the ornament, rose and holly I used S4-114 Standard Circles LGS5-185 Build A WreathS4-405 Mix-N-Match Ornaments die templates.  For the ornament and holly I used Gold Mirror Mirri paper and then I lightly sanded the holly leaves. 

I love how this card turned out with the non-traditional Christmas colors and the soft shabby chic look.

JustRite Papercraft New Release Day Two

Hello everyone and welcome to day two of the New Releases from JustRite Papercraft!  

Today's stamp set is one that I think you are going to love!  Doilies are so Hot right now--check this out!!  Look at all that doily goodness!!  This SW-04700 Dainty Doilies stamp set was designed by Samantha Walker for JustRite Papercraft.  I love all of the doily images and you can mix and match them to create your own unique doilies.  Plus the stamps match S5-205 Delicate Doilies die template set that was also designed by Samantha Walker for Spellbinders Paper Arts®.

Here is the card that I designed using SW-04700 Dainty Doilies stamp set and S5-205 Delicate Doilies die template set.  I randomly stamped the doilies onto the Kraft paper using Donna Salazar Mixed Media Inx Jasmine and set aside to dry.  Then I created three die cuts using the S5-205 Delicate Doilies die template set.  I used E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49' to adhere all of the mats together and I used S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A and  S6-002 5x7 Matting Basics B die templates to create the mats.  Then I added the doily die cuts to the top of the card and trimmed off the excess.  Next I added Vivid Pink Seam Binding across the top of the card and added a bow.  Then I added a cluster of flowers using WOC Flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  For the flower cluster I used Chrysanthemums Mixed Pink/White 10 pcsCosmos Daisy Stem Flowers Pink/White 50 pcs and Sweetheart Blossom 20pcs 2-Tone Pink.

I stamped another doily image using Memento Angel Pink ink and then I stamped the sentiment using Memento Rich Cooca ink.  The sentiment is from SW-04420 For All You Do Vintage Labels Three stamp set.  Then I used the S5-205 Delicate Doilies die templates to cut/emboss the image.  I used 3D Foam Squares to pop up the sentiment.

JustRite Papercraft New Release - Lacey Tiers Dies

Hello blogging friends!  Today, starts a week filled with New Releases from JustRite Papercraft and I hope you enjoy the New Releases as much as I do!

The New Release that I am sharing with you today is AG-04395 Lacey Tiers Dies this is a set that was designed by Becca Feeken for JustRite Papercraft.  This is a beautiful die template set that can be used and layered in so many ways and totally reflects Becca's elegant style.

Here is a Christmas ornament that I designed using AG-04395 Lacey Tiers Dies from JustRite Papercraft and S4-401  2013 Heirloom Ornaments die template from Spellbinders Paper Arts®.  I have a full step-by-step tutorial to share with you on how to create this Christmas ornament.

To start I applied 6'' x 12'' Adhesive Sheets from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® to the back of two pieces of Gold Mirror Mirri paper from

Then I used the decorative circle from the AG-04395 Lacey Tiers Dies and the largest die template in the S4-401  2013 Heirloom Ornaments set.

Look how perfectly these two die templates match up!  I placed the decorative circle die template inside the ornament die template and used some tape to hold them in place.  Then I used the Artisan X-plorer™ to create the die cuts.

This is what the die cut shape will look like.  Be sure to cut two of these ornaments.

Next, I used the ornament die by itself to cut a piece of white lace material.  The white lace material is placed in between the two Christmas ornament die cuts.

This is what the ornament looks like once all three pieces are adhered together.  I put the piece of red paper in the background so you could see the lace.

Here is another close up where you can see the lace.  I added white and ivory pearls and an ivory rose with gold fern leaves.  I also added Pssst! Sheer Shimmer Spritz Sparkle from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko to the rose.  I used a brush to apply the shimmer.

Here is a close up of the rose.  Check out all of the shimmer--love it!

I used a piece of 3/8" Ivory Satin with Gold Metallic Trim Ribbon from  Really Reasonable Ribbon to create a hanger for the ornament.  I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and will give these ornaments a try!

Paris Trinket Box

Hello blogging friends!  How are you all doing?  It sure has cooled off in MN the past couple of days, but I'm not complaining lol!  The cooler weather is a nice change, as long as we don't all of a sudden jump into Fall.  This next week is going to be a busy one!  Our youngest son is going to be in his first play and they have two performances everyday.  It's pretty exciting as this is his first play and he had a lead roll.  Plus we have the County Fair and when your from a small town that's a pretty big thing lol!  Besides the 4th of July it's probably the biggest event of the summer.  ;-)  It's going to be busy week on my blog too with a New JustRite Papercraft Release--starting on Sunday!

Today, I have a beautiful altered box to share with you.

This is the view of the top of the box.  I painted the wood box with an antique white paint.  Then I used Liquitex Light Modeling Paste with some Antique Linen Ink Refill to tint the modeling paste and stencils for the top and sides of the box.  I added lace around the heart and then I created the banners for the top.  To create the banners I used SW-04415 Bunting and Buttons Dies from JustRite Papercrft and  Premium Craft Foil from Spellbinders Paper Arts®.  I stamped the word Paris with metal stamps on the craft foil banner die cuts.  I also used felt to create the scalloped banner die cuts.  I added gesso, pearls, Champagne Crushed Glass GlitterPssst! Sheer Shimmer Spritz Gold and White Seam Binding (tea dyed).  The vintage image is one that I found online and printed off.

Here is a close up of the banner.  I also added a metal crown and rhinestones.

I created a cameo and flower cluster down in the bottom corner.  The Small Pink CameoSmall Bronze Cameo FrameClear SS10 Pointy Back Crystal Rhinestones and Leaf Filigrees are all from ButterBeeScraps.  For the roses I brushed on Pssst! Sheer Shimmer Spritz Gold and I love how they shimmer!!  I also lightly misted the entire box with the spritz.  

Going all around the box I added Venise Lace.  I used four different styles of the lace trim.  To finish it off I added a beautiful and fluffy bow made with tea dyed Seam Binding and a large gem.

I had so much fun create this decorative box and I love how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Estate Sale Vintage Dress and Hilarious Hoarders Video Revisited

Hello blogging friends!  I don't have any artwork to share with you today but I can say I am officially done with CHA artwork!!  Such a wonderful feeling to have all of the projects completed and in the mail! ;-)

Last week I got a phone call from my aunt Gail and she was at an estate sale.  She found this beautiful vintage dress and it was only $12.00!!  She described it to me and said she thought it would look great on my dress form.  So I got over to the sale right away.  I bought the dress and a bag full of old wooden spools.  We had a fun time looking around!

Here is a picture of the dress before I washed it.  The dress is so delicate so I washed it by hand. 

Here is a close up of the before.  I think the people might have been smokers because the dress was yellowed and as soon as the fabric hit the water it didn't smell very good.  I was a little worried that the smell might not come out but after four washes the water was clear and the dress didn't smell.  

Here is an after picture and the dress is a pretty light ivory now.  ;-)

I LOVE how pretty my dress form is now with this beautiful vintage dress!!!
It makes me Happy!! ;-)
A Huge Thanks to my aunt Gail for a Fabulous estate sale find!!!

The other day a dear sweet friend of mine Wendy Weixler shared a video on Facebook and she tagged several friends--myself included.  Maybe you have already watched this video but if not you HAVE TO SEE IT!!!  This will totally make your day and put a smile on your face!!  Linda, the lady in the video is Hilarious!!!  Her video has been viewed almost 20,000 times and she just posted it a couple of days ago. 

Let's Go Shopping!!!

LOL!!  I hope this video gave you a good laugh!!

Have a Wonderful Day and Happy Crafting!!

Spellbinders Shape It Up Sneak Peek and Giveaway Day Three

Hello blogging friends!  Today, is day three of the Spellbinders Shape It Up Sneak Peek and Giveaway.  I have a couple of projects to share with you using the NEW E3D-010 Roman Romance 3D M-Bossabilites folders and I have a full step-by-step tutorial. 

Supply List:
Cross Promotional Partners
Other Products
Paper: Simply Smooth White, Teal
Accessories:  Simply Paveena Venise Lace Trim; Really Reasonable Ribbon Bliss Pearls; Hot Glue

To start die cut a piece of simply smooth white cardstock using Nestabilities™ Card Creator S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A.  Then lightly mist the front and back of the cardstock with water.  Doing this will loosen the fibers in the paper and allow for a very deep and crisp emboss.  Set aside. *Tip-add 1-2 drops of Dawn dish soap to the water this will condition and loosen the fibers.

To create a letterpress affect start to apply the Turquoise Gem Versa Magic™ ink directly to the 
M-Bossabilites folder starting at the top (hinge side).   Apply the ink about half way down the folder.

Now switch colors of ink.  Using the Aquatic Splash Versa Magic™ ink start applying ink in the middle and continue to the bottom of the folder.  *Tip-using this particular folder you will want to do the direct ink technique-apply ink directly from the ink pad to the folder.  There are several layers of dimension to this folder and applying the ink directly will give a better ink coverage than a brayer.

Place the 5x7 die cut of simply smooth white cardstock in to the folder and run it through the Grand Calibur® Machine to emboss.  The embossing sandwich for the 3D M-Bossabilities™ is a little different than the regular embossing sandwich—B • Embossing Plate, M-Bossabilities Folder with paper inside and D • Adapter Plate on top.

I absolutely love the look of the letterpress with the 3D M-bossabilites!  The embossing is so crisp and doing the letterpress with this folder gives the embossing the look of venise lace.  I also love how the embossed pattern fades out toward the bottom.  To finish of the embossed piece I stamped a sentiment from 
CR-04350 Special Gifts Labels Twenty-Nine stamp set from JustRite Papercraft®.

To assemble the card I used a piece of teal cardstock scored and folded for the base.  Then I used E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser-49' from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® to adhere the pieces together.  I added a piece of white venise lace trim along the side and then I added a few pearls to the embossed area and by the sentiment.

When using the 3D M-bossabilites try to explore beyond.  Think out of the box and look at different ways to use them.  The 3D M-bossabilities are not just for paper crafting.

Here is a second project that I designed using Premium Craft Foils from Spellbinders with the E3D-010 Roman Romance 3D M-Bossabilites™ Folder.  I embossed the foil and then cut out parts of it and used it to alter a wooden box transforming it from simple to stunning.
