Today we are featuring Samantha Walker's Christmas July sets and JustRite Papercraft Designers have inspiration galore for you!  The Samantha Walker Sale continues in celebration of these awesome stamp sets!
There are so many possibilities with Samantha's new set, Holiday Magic!  Today I have a 5 1/2" square card.  It is a cute play on "naughty or nice" when Santa comes to town!  Remember that Santa song?  I used a square Nestabling pearl embellishment for my Spellbinders Square Scallop die cut.  I sprinkled glitter on the exposed adhesive between each pearl.  I do not see the pink in the Want2Scrap store.  However, they do have two other colors and lots of Nestabling embellishments!

From this fantastic Holiday Magic Set, I stamped the large snowflake image with Memento Angel Pink ink before scissor trimming it out!  Then I stamped my Dear Santa with Aqua before punching out.  The square designer paper and scalloped pink box are cut using Spellbinders Dies HERE.  That gave me the amount of space that would accommodate the watermark ink sentiments around the pink scallop square!  Card Base and squares have white ink edging applied with a sponge dauber.  A seam binding bow, a pearl border along with glitter mini snowballs complete the card. There we have it another card to add to the Holiday Card List!

My husbands birthday is June 25th and every year on that day he reminds me, 6 months until Christmas!  And vice versa on Christmas, 6 months until my birthday!  Too funny, I have heard those statements for over 34 years!  But really, less than six months & it will be Christmas Day!  Yikes!  Have you started checking off names on your Christmas Card List? Need inspiration? Check out the following JustRite designers for inspiration galore!

A Bundle of Joy, Baby Girl! Stamp Simply Style!

Good Monday Morning to you! I have a baby girl card for you today!  First I want to share this link, HERE. It is the Kaisercraft Bundle of Joy products that is perfect for a girl or boy!  For making Cards, Scrapbooks, Tags, etc. you name it and this line is perfect!
My 5" square card uses designer papers from Kaisercrafts Bundle of Joy 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad. Did you know that Kaisercraft paper pads include flocked paper (the polka dot), punch out elements (the scalloped borders), glossy paper (baby girl tag is cut from glossy page) along with their beautiful patterned papers?  I know!  These are wonderful papers, with added features and that equals a great bargain! All designer paper elements are edge shaded using two favorites of mine, Tim Holtz "Old Paper" distress ink and a sponge dauber!

This close-up gives you a great look at the stamped image!  This buggy image is found in the coordinating Kaisercraft Bundle of Joy set and is stamped with VersaFine Sepia ink on another one of the designer papers from the above mentioned paper pad.  It is cut using Spellbinders Standard circle die which is placed upon another circle die cut and a Spellbinders Lacey Circle die cut. The darling Baby Girl tag was cut out of a page of the designer paper pad and has a glossy finish to it. The Paper Cord, and 3/16" center stitched ribbon finishes the card nicely!  Oh and a few adhesive pearls are a perfect detail too!  

There you have it!  Another baby card for the ongoing list of needed cards!  Be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for their specials and latest and newest added store products!  And Sharon's BLOG will keep you informed of store product and great inspiration filled ideas!  Take Care and make it a marvelous Monday!

Simple Thank YOU!

Using Let Your Soul Sing JustRite Clear stamp set found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, I created a simple card for you today!  This card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" with the corners rounded.  I stamped the flower image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink before scissor cutting and adhering to card base. The direct to card stamped Thank You sentiment is found in JR Grand Sentiments Set also at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!  Add a bit of 1/8" Velvet Ribbon, metallic string, sequins and voila, card complete!

Happy Birthday!

Good Monday Morning!  I have two fun super easy cards for you today!  I am tickled pink with the BoBunny "Surprise" 6 x 6 paper pad and coordinating BoBunny "Noteworthy" individual die-cuts for card making and scrapbooking.  And what a value, there are 59 die-cuts in the BoBunny "Noteworthy" package for $3.99!  You can find BoBunny products along with all your papercrafting needs at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!  

I used seven die-cuts on this Party Time Card.  It came together quickly which is a huge plus!  I used my handheld round punch on the base of the balloons and tag, allowing holes for the bakers twine!  I used Therm-o-Web foam dimensionals to pop up the package die-cut.  The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has bakers twine available in many colors HERE.
My second card uses three larger die-cuts from BoBunny's "Noteworthy" package.  I added Kaisercraft  Adhesive rhinestones and some 1/4" mini dot ribbon!  The party hat is popped up using Therm-o-Web foam dimensionals. I cannot wait to see how many cards I will get out of this one pad of BoBunny "Surprise" paper and one package of BoBunny "Noteworthy" die-cuts.  

Make it a marvelous Monday! Remember to check out Sharon Johnson's BLOG, No Time to Stamp? for all the latest of whats in The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store along with inspiration ideas!  Thanks so much for stopping by, I so appreciate your visits!

Boo-tiful Mummy and Halloween Lunch Bag!

We are on Day Four of JustRite's June Release!  I have two creations to share with you today!  I love Halloween creating and the two Samantha Walker stamp sets being featured give inspiration beyond to get us going in the Halloween direction!  

How about a lunch bag treat holder?  All stamped pieces are scissor trimmed before adhered to the lunch bag front. I wanted mis-shaped looks, so it was worry free as I cut this way and that! And look at the spider door handle, love it!

Samantha Walker's Spider Web background stamp is adorable, no? I stamped the lunch bag front using VeraMark Watermark Ink.  Door frame, spiders and rooftop sentiment are stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black, Pumpkins with Martha Stewart Ink, Eek & the window peekers with PapertreyInk Fresh Snow.  The Halloween roof strip is stamped with Memento London Fog and shaded with Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink.

A close up look at one of the window peekers!  After stamping the pumpkins, I filled in the face features with black marker.  I also attached green twisted paper cord string with a small gem to each pumpkin top!

I've always wanted to create one of these Mummy cards!  I have seen them for years and just never got to it!  Well, this year I did it!  And talk about easy peasy!  I stamped a page of the Halloween image with Memento London Fog ink and started tearing into strips!  After shading the edges with TIm Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink, I placed the strips at angles on my 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base.  I  trimmed all the edges and used a corner rounder punch to achieve the card base shape.

Samantha Walker's Boo-tiful Cameos is a JustRite clear set featuring 19 stamps.  I stamped the sentiment Boo and Spider eyes with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.  A couple sparkle rhinestone gems to embellish the eyes and Voila' a Mummy Card!  One of the easiest cards ever!  It's never too early to think Halloween!   

Check out the following designer blogs for more Boo-tiful inspiration today!  Enjoy!

Celebrate Your Day with Doilies & Lace!

Happy Saturday!  We are on Day Three of JustRite's June Release!  Today we are featuring Samantha Walker Designed Sets.  I am using her Doilies & Lace Set for my 4" x 4" square card.  Celebrate Your Day is from JustRite's Grand Sentiments Set.  Seam Binding bow and Prima Zephyr Collection flower are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Samantha Walkers Doilies & Lace is a JustRite Clear Set featuring 28 stamps. I utilized the three smaller circle images along with a scalloped border stamping with Martha Stewart Inks.  Spellbinders Standard Circle Dies were used to cut the circles.  Each circle received a button embellishment tied with Bakers Twine before being adhered to card panel.  Panels were cut using Spellbinders Classic Square Dies.  The entire panel is atop a Spellbinders Decorative Labels One die cut.

The following JustRite Designers have wonderful inspiration for you!  Have a super Saturday and I will see you tomorrow with more Samantha Walker goodness.  Think pumpkins, treats and spiders!
