JustRite May Releases – Family Garden

Hey chicklets!  I’m much better today, and I have a project to share that was soooooo much fun to make, I’ll just have to explain how I got there.  First of all this is a new release by JustRite Stampers called Family Garden — adorable, hunh!?!   The first time I saw the set, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  It’s super cute because they included flowers in the set, but since they are not a part of the stamp, you can substitute anything you like, buttons, pearls, rings, a round of crochet – you get the picture.

I’ve tried  before to stamp on slick buttons with Stazon ink but was never happy with the results.   So recently when I saw someone  stamp on a fabric button, this was the a-ha I needed.  So now what fabric to use?  For a while I did cross stitching and somewhere along the line I hit a super clearance sale on cross stitch linen.  I have tons of it and thought if I was lucky, it would take ink.  Turns out that it takes ink very well – I used Stazon and Brilliance.  Using Scor-Tape sheets, I applied the linen to a piece of cardstock and stamped on it and then cut it for my project.   For the Gable Box I used a steel rule die cut and for my card, I simply cut my panel using my Tonic cutter.

For all the buttons I simply used an inexpensive covered button kit from the fabric store.  In this kit, all the top domes for the buttons had teeth which made it very easy to keep the fabric in place.  I did all of these (21 in total) by hand, each one taking less than a minute.  I applied them to the box and card with my glue gun.

For the card I used small, simple elements.  Spellbinders Standard Circle LG and Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Accents make the side embellishment.  My title, from JustRite Stampers You Are the Best Set is centered on top of Spellbinders Grommet Tags.  I’ve fallen in love with this linen, he-he . . . I just know you will see it again.

    Very pretty! I too used to cross stitch and I know I have linen in my box. I’m going to have to dig that out. Thanks for the inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • CharletteMay 11, 2011 - 8:26 am

    Wow I love the card and your little box! First off the colors are wonderful. I love the linen on the card also. Great Idea! Such a lovely set. You always do such great things. I think I need to go get some covered button sets and some cross stitch linen to keep on hand. Michaels has some good coupons this week. Thanks for always sharing with all of us! JustRite should be so glad to have you on their team because you really do such a wonderful job with the products.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara AKA GardenladyMay 11, 2011 - 8:53 am

    Wow I just love this project! Then again with the name gardenlady I guess it goes to show I would! :) I have linen and button sets so I could do this set with no problem except I am getting my own hobby room and everything is boxed up until the room is completed. I can’t wait to give this a try! Thanks Becca for all your inspiration.ReplyCancel

    What a wonderful, cute kit! Thanks for sharing the info. The Cross Stitch linen looks like canvas. Probably more workable and stampable than canvas!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Becca – I never would have considered stamping on cross stitch fabric….so clever!! Perhaps after the pain of the headache yesterday, your creative side of your brain is feeling so good since feeling so badly that inspirations just come you in a snap today. Whatever – we are grateful!

  • Pat JandacekMay 11, 2011 - 10:56 am

    I’m amazed at how well the texture of the linen took the stamping ink – I’ve got textured paper that won’t do that good! Another beautiful card and more inspiration from you, Becca. Can’t tell you often enough how much your sharing is appreciated.ReplyCancel

    Well this is just the cutest thing ever. I love using fabrics in paper crafts. This is simply adorable. And I love too the bow made from multi colors of ribbon. Very clever indeed. You outdid yourself this time for sure, Becca. Don’t you just love how God keeps giving you new ideas all the time??? Thank you once again for yet more inspiration. You’re the best, girl.

  • BernieMay 11, 2011 - 12:11 pm

    Happy to hear you are feeling better. OH MY GOSH These are stunning! For some reason they make me think of my Grandma. I have a box of goodies to donate including two covered button kits and several sheets of cross stitch fabric. I can’t see well enough to cross stitch any more and I don’t even know where the button kits came from but I’ll be pulling those goodies out of that box ASAP. Thank you for the inspiration.

  • SuziMay 11, 2011 - 1:55 pm

    Fantastic! I love the way you think! Wish I could crawl inside your brain and absorb some of that talent! The fabric gives both the card and the box such a feminine homespun, but professional appearance. Just gorgeous!ReplyCancel

    I adore the effect of stamping on the cross stitch linen and the buttons are, well, cute as a button. You just keep coming up with fabulous ideas to charm and amaze us. I don’t know how you do it, but please keep doing it. Does that brain of yours ever sleep?ReplyCancel

    Love the project!! TFSReplyCancel

  • Kelly SasMay 11, 2011 - 4:30 pm

    Becca, can I have your brain for just one day PLEASE??? You amaze me how you come up with the most original ideas ever! Plus you don’t need any fancy expensive gadgets to make embellies with like those buttons. If you can’t find a cheap gadget that does it, you make one of your own like your peg bow maker etc! You are my idol!!!ReplyCancel

  • Cindy LouMay 11, 2011 - 4:59 pm

    Woohoo, I am loving this card, just ordered this set today! This morning as a matter of fact. This set is just all me in all types of aspects. Your box and card are just awesome! Love them! Love all the texture especially the buttons that you made. Your use of this stamp is awesome in both the card and the gable box! Wish you lived closer, someone just gave me a gift that I absolutley adore, but have more than I can use and would love to share (and don’t know anyone close that I can share with). Regardless, love your use of the stamp! Thanks for sharing! Blessings!ReplyCancel

  • TanjaMay 11, 2011 - 6:33 pm

    These are lovely – a little different from you usual style and so fresh and soft. The linen is so pretty – thanks for the inspiration. I love the pastel colours you have used in the flowers and the combined ribbons. Have a lovely day Becca.ReplyCancel

  • FMMay 11, 2011 - 7:33 pm

  • Maxine D/KiwimeMay 11, 2011 - 7:36 pm

    As an embroiderer I flinched when I saw linen on your card – it is soooooo expensive here – but I must admit it looks fabulous on the card and buttons and box :-)

  • Judy CoveyMay 11, 2011 - 7:46 pm

    OMG Becca, the card AND the box are absolutely gorgeous! I just love them!!! I guess I need to check out the Just Rite stamp set and keep a copy of this post. You come up with the neatest ideas and projects.

    Glad to hear that you are feeling better.ReplyCancel

  • Ginny IngramMay 11, 2011 - 11:43 pm

    I love that vine stamp! So versatile, and useful for many different types of cards. But using precious cross stitch fabric to stamp on? For shame! Scraps, maybe.ReplyCancel

  • DanicaMay 12, 2011 - 7:48 am

    I love the look of linen. It is simple and sweet but, for me, it has a sort of elegance too! I have a huge stash of cross stitch fabric around here somewhere. I am going to have to break it out and stamp on it. Tfs!!ReplyCancel

  • auntie em (emily)May 12, 2011 - 7:48 am

    Your pretty gift set is lovely! It makes sense that the fabric would take the ink since they print patterns on it. You are a smart cookie! I am so glad I know now what to do with all that cross stitch fabric I have ‘hoarded’ away! Since my eyesight isn’t good enough to stitch I will have to ‘stamp’ on it instead.
    Thanks for sharing! :)ReplyCancel

  • deb vandersteegMay 12, 2011 - 8:25 am

    Miss Becca! You’ve done it again!!! This is the BEANS!

    Hope you have a beautiful day.

All of your projects are stunning … I just cannot believe it each day when I visit and find yet another fabulous creation.

Your tutorials are really marvellous and much-valued too … you are generous beyond words. Thank you so much, Becca, you are truly amazing!!ReplyCancel

    This set is just wonderful, I have been sitting here just looking at it going back and forwards from one picture to another! You must have been so chuffed when you put this together as it’s a real winner. There’s something about the fabric that makes it look so tactile, if I had made those items I would be so proud of myself so I hope you are! :)ReplyCancel
