Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style in Red, White, and Blue!

It is Saturday and that means it's time for a Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Ribbon Inspiration Challenge! Sharon has issued a  Red, White, & Blue Inspiration Challenge and I decided to go with a fourth of July banner. I never seem to have much decor for patriotic holidays. This banner will actually hang on a small mirror by an entry door for all to see when they walk into our home!  

I used JustRite's new set, Summer Words for my stamping! Pennant Spellbinder dies are HERE. Star Spellbinder Dies are HERE in the store. White wrinkle ribbon is what the pennants are strung on. Very easy to string using the Lacey pennant die. 3/8" blue stripe ribbon create the end bows, while 3/8" red gingham is strung through stars and knotted. Tim Holtz Distress Old Paper Ink is used to shade edges of banner pieces.

You're a BBQ Apron! JustRite Style!

Summer Words/Cozy Plaid BBQ Apron Invite Card
Welcome to the last day of JustRite's May Release! I combined sentiments from Summer Words along with a new background stamp that was released last week! So, I thought a plaid apron was in order for a BBQ invite! This was super easy using the plaid background stamp!

Spellbinders Grand Large Labels Die #2 and a Mega Oval Die is how I cut my stamped card stock for the apron. Super simple as shown in picture above to line up along the plaid lines! I stamped the background image twice, and die cut two aprons. That easy! The second apron was cut in half and sewn on to the lower portion to create a pocket on the apron (I was just over at the Spellbinders store and could not find the Mega Oval dies, but really any oval would work). The white borders edging up on the pocket was cut with A Classic Edge One die cut.

Summer Words is a Clear Stamp Set and sports 25 stamps! Perfect set to cover summer holidays as well as general needed sentiments! I especially love the variety of font styles in this set!

Imagine the options with this wonderful background stamp, Cozy Plaid. JustRite offers many background stamps for all your stamping needs! Thank You for stopping by today! I hope you had a blessed weekend!

These girls make my heart smile!

Welcome to JustRite Release Day Three! It's also JustRite's Friday Challenge!  Since the challenge is to create a 3D creation, how about an altered frame using JustRite new release sets! The two girls are my granddaughters and the setting is church at Easter trying out the piano! I could not resist snapping several pictures of them! I must say they are a-dor-a-ble!
After removing the mat, I stamped it with JustRite's new Heart Scroll background stamp with Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress ink, first along the horizontal portion then proceeding to the vertical portions of the mat. I glued trim to the inner edge of the picture opening! LOVE this trim and you can find it HERE at The Stampm Simply RIBBON Store!

Here is a closer look at the trim and ribbon embellishment! The small Webster's Pages bird has be weathered a little by applying white acrylic paint on it. Small prima rose and more trim compliment the gorgeous pink silk ribbon bow!  Love the subtle mat stamping! I also applied Kaiser adhesive pearls in each corner! 

Using the far right edge stamp, stamped with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Ink gives another bit of side framing for the pictures. Just look at all the die goodness in Justrite's new Classic Art Deco Borders Set. Spellbinders Die Templates E8-007 Edges One coordinate with this set perfectly! Yes, it's a good day and I thank you for stopping by! I am posting the original pics at the end of this post used in today's frame project as they did not show well in the framed project!  Enjoy your day and see you tomorrow with a very special Stamp Simply RIBBON challenge creation!  Oh yea, Baby! (that's a clue!)

Enjoy the Ride! Let the Adventure Begin...

Finished Notebook with matching Pen Set
Welcome to Justrite Release Day Two! On my creation today I have used a new JustRite Cling Background Stamp, Vintage Travel and a couple images from JustRite's new Cling Going Places Vintage Labels Set.  
Before and After Background Stamped Notebooks
Here is a blank notebook and one that I stamped with the background stamp. I wanted you to see how this simple stamping transformed the look completely! I stamped the background using Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Ink. Tim Holtz Old Paper ink is used for shading. 

My Vintage Airplane Label is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and shaded with Tim Holtz Old Paper Ink. I trimmed the label and applied a touch of Tim Holtz Blue Jeans Ink in the sky area. Enjoy the Ride sentiment is stamped with Memento Cottage Ivy ink. 

An oldie but good idea is to create a stamped pen insert to match a paper notebook or paper pad. I stamped the Vintage Travel background onto white Recollections Card stock, then cut away the portion I wanted for the pen. After removing the ink component, I rolled stamped paper and inserted into empty pen barrel. Next, I reinserted the ink component and replaced the cap. Easy project today! Thanks for stopping by! I have a special photo project tomorrow to share! See you then!

It's JustRite Release Time! Anchors Away!

Anchors Away 4" x 4" Canvas
Here we are, JustRite release day! And we are featuring a new clear set, called Anchors Away! I was thrilled when I saw this set, as I had one 4" x 4" canvas to complete to go along with the others found HERE. I'm so glad I procrastinated now! I had the canvas ready to go, covered with designer paper from Webster's Pages Yacht Club, complete with anchors! 
JustRite Anchors Away Clear Set
Anchors Away features 23 clear stamps designed by Amy Tedder of Amy Tedder Designs. I stamped the top medallion with Memento Rich Cocoa onto the same Webster's Pages Yacht Club designer paper the canvas is covered with. It is cut using a JustRite Custom Nested Medallion Spellbinders Die. I colored the border and rope with Copic Markers. The sentiment, Anchors Away is stamped with Adirondack Currant Ink and the anchor itself is stamped with StazOn Black Ink. The anchor is trimmed out before being covered with SU Crystal Effects. Tim Holtz Old Paper Ink is used for shading. Red Webbed Weave, blue seam binding, and adhesive gems complete the canvas and are found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store!  

I can't wait to get all four canvases up on the wall! For sure when that happens, I will post a picture!  Thank You for stopping by today! I hope you get a chance to check out all the JustRite Designer's BLOGS listed below! They have JustRite new release goodness to share! See you tomorrow with another new release creation!
