Hello and welcome here! I have a card made with JustRite stamps that I wanted to share with you today. The idea for this card came from Stamp It Techniques Winter 2011, pg. 12 by Vanessa Menhorn. I wanted to use my scrolly JustRite stamps and when I saw Vanessa's card I was inspired. (I tried to find an online photo of her card, but had no luck...the issue was out this past spring.)
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
I love that this card is sort of like a chameleon...it's elegant enough to be used as a Wedding Card, or soft enough to be used as a Sympathy Card...even a Birthday Card.
I changed up the colours from the original card (cream and green), and used burgundy and white. I clear embossed the center scrollwork stamp and sponged Distress Inks-Pumice Stone to bring out the embossing. Using the same stamp, I used Pumice Stone and 2nd generation stamping around the edges. I coloured white pearls with Copics RV99 to match my ribbon.
I didn't have the right flower colour for the card, so I ended up making one from scratch. I have a tutorial below to show you the steps of how I did that.
Recipe: CTMH CS-White Daisy, Textured CS-Burgundy, Distress Inks-Pumice Stone, Black Soot & Victorian Velvet, CTMH SS-Universal Backgrounds, My Mind's Eye Stamps-Lost & Found Two, JustRite Stamps-Heart to Heart Set & Kindness, Inkadinkado Stamps-Expressions, VersaMark, Clear Embossing Powder, Paper Leaves, Burgundy Satin Ribbon, Pearls, Copic RV99.
Here's the flower I had on hand but it was not the right colour. When looking at it, I thought I could come up with something similar.
Here's the card again to show you the flower. I ended up using my stipple brush to ink some colour onto it because it was a little too white. It would have been best to ink my flower before making it:)
