Three Different Cards Using the Same Die from JustRite and Maja Design

Three Different Cards Using the Same Die - With JustRite

Today I am featuring a versatile die from JustRite called the JustRite Classy Frame and Tag Die DIE
I made three cards and you can see the dramatic results.  

This is the first card created using  the following stamps and dies from JustRite.  

This is the second example using the same die set.  I simply used the negative space from the die and added lace behind the negative space for a little softer look.    A simple card to create with a dab of grace. 

The papers used on this card are from the Maja Design Summertime collection.  
These are the papers I chose from the Summertime collection.  This is a double sided sheet called "Flowers Everywhere".  Beautiful, isn't it?
You can see here that the lace adds a sweetness to the card. Not much else needed between the design of the die and the pretty lace mixed with the gorgeous papers.   
This is the third card created and also created using the Maja Design Summertime collection.  The collection has a perfect blend of colors that hop from beautiful raspberry  to soft and pastel navy blue.  

These are the dies used on this card...also from JustRite.

The papers on this card from the Summertime collection are called "Watch the Boats", "Glittering Water", and "Have Fun".

Thanks for stopping today.

DIY Elegant Card Ideas Using Lemoncraft

DIY Easy Instructions

Hello. I'm here today to share some projects using a few collections from Lemoncraft.  The first project is a wedding card using the delicate and graceful Lemoncraft collection called 'House of Roses'.   The second project is an 8x8 layout using the 'Christmas Greetings' and 'House of Roses' collections.   

First up is the card.  So let me show you the wedding card I created first.  I really love the Lemoncraft 'House or Roses ' collection. It is perfect for romantic wedding cards.   The beautiful rose on the heart is from the Lemoncraft 'House of Roses Labels 2 - Vintage labels'.

DIY Step By Step Instructions 
I will share my simple DIY instructions so you can see the steps taken to make this card.  

Step 1.  I am creating a card that is sized 5in x 6.5 in.   You can fold your own card base or use a pre-folded card.  I used a pre-folded ivory card base.

To build the base of my card, I selected 2 sheets of patterned paper for layers from Lemoncraft House of Roses  - Time Flies 6x6 paper pad and one sheet of ivory cardstock.  I also punched a decorative border from sheet of the 6x6 Lemoncraft pad. 

I lightly ink all edges for definition and glue the paper layers to the cardstock as desired.  I set the punched border aside for  use in step 2.  
Step 2.  I created an ornate strip for the card.  The four layers as follows from top to bottom ( with paper edges gently inked):

 Top layer 1 -  I selected a piece from the 6x6 paper pad with delicate florals.  I cut a strip about two inches wide - or wide enough to include the beautiful floral images.

Layer 2 - The border punch from step 1

Layer 3 - 1/4 inch paper strip

Bottom Layer 4 - lace
Step 3.  Attach all decorative layers onto card. 

Step 4. Assemble the embellishments.  Cut out a vintage image from the Lemoncraft Vintage Labels sheet.  Cut or punch a heart shape about 3 inches wide.  Select the flowers.
Ink the edges of everything for consistency - even the flowers.  

Step 5.  Add the embellishments to the card.  I added a piece of cardboard to the back of the heart for added dimension.  
Step 6. Print a card sentiment from computer.   Ink the edges and glue to card.  
And here is another photo of the completed card.  

My second project is an 8x8 layout for my friend's young son.  I wanted to make the page have a little bit of a masculine feel without it being too manly.  I used the greens and neutral colors from the 'Christmas Greetings' Basic paper pad for the border.  

The background is paper from 'House of Roses' Basic paper pad.   I also used some green ribbon from the 'Christmas Greetings' ribbon and lace set.  The family is Irish so the green ribbon was perfect. 

I hope you are also having fun with all the beautiful LemonCraft collections.  
Thank you for stopping by!

Birthday Candle Invitation Card - Using Justrite Stamps - DIY Instructions

Easiest Birthday Invitation Ever!
I created a quick easy birthday card/invitation using just one set of stamps from JustRite Papercrafts.  

This super versatile stamp set has enledd possibilities for birthdays and celebrations including ideas for school projects and for the teacher even - as you can see in the image of the set below. 

My Steps and Easy DIY instructions
OK - soooooo easy… I wanted the sentiments to look like candles.  
  I found the easiest way to stamp the sentiments was to line them all up on my clear acrylic stamp block first and then stamp - repeating as necessary to complete the border.

 After stamping the sentiments, I doubled back and stamped the itty bitty candle flame.

Last step…I added my watercolors as the last step. I just happened to have used Prima's Tropical Confections watercolor set.   

And this is what the finished border looks like.

Winter Snowball Card Using JustRite Dies and Stamps

JustRite Dies and Stamps for Christmas and Winter
I have a simple yet beautiful frosty card I created using some dies and stamps from JustRite.  

Not a lot to this card, but sometimes simple is effective and I love the colors I chose.  

The background of the card  was created using JustRite Confetti Trio Background Stamps.
I thought I would dab the stamp with three different colored distress inks - Dusty Concord, Broken China and Bundled Sage.

The sentiment in the corner is JustRite Small Oval Christmas Tidings Clear Stamps and is stamped using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Faded Jeans.  

Finally the sweet little snowflake in the upper corner was created by cutting the circle from 
JustRite Four in a Square Die, then stamping the snowflake design from the JustRite Small Oval Christmas Tidings Clear Stamps.
