Welcome! Can you handle another pink card today? JustRite's September release is here, and the Sunshine Vintage Labels Eight and Nine clear stamp set (shown below) was perfect for a card that I needed for a friend undergoing chemo. I stamped the frame image on PTI's Vintage Cream cardstock in Lavender Moon ink. I used Autumn Rose ink to stamp the sentiment. The background is stamped with the Framed Vintage Labels Eight cling stamp on Lavender Moon cardstock. (More about the rose later.)
One of my favorite sentiments in this stamp set is the Winnie the Pooh quotation: "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think!"
So. . . true confessions: I'm not the best flower maker, even with a great collection of dies. I'm usually not patient enough to do all of the requisite cutting, scrunching, twisting, rolling, and distressing that convincing paper flowers require; but I really wanted a flower on my friend's card. I used my Spellbinders Rose Creations die template set for the blossom, paired with a Foliage die template for the leaves (Lavender Moon and Spring Moss cardstock). I needed a flower center and didn't want to use a brad, so I cut a 1/4" strip of yellow cardstock and cut one edge about 1/8" down, ever 1/16", approximately. Next I rolled that strip, trimmed part of the solid bottom off, stuffed it in the hole, and glued it in as my rose center. I liked the result much better than having a brad in the middle. :-)
I found out last night that all of the JustRite 6" x 8" clear stamp are 25% off through September 7--even the NEW ones like Sunshine Vintage Labels Eight and Nine. No code is needed; these sets should show a reduced price already.) Would you like to see some lovely creations that the other DT girls came up with? Have fun looking!
