A Bouquet of Good Wishes and a Becca Bit

Hi there friends!  I’m back to share a new card using the newest releases from JustRite Stampers; this one is called Sending You Sunshine.  How cute is that, right?!?  I love the clean graphics on this set, they color up very quickly (in minutes) and let’s face it there are always times we want to reach for a set for a quick card.

This one is quite layered, but you know that layering is my comfort zone.  Just in case you want to copy or know how I layered the medallion, here’s what I used.  Starting on the bottom, I used Spellbinders Lotus Pendant, cut in half and trimmed some off the sides so that I was only using five peaks.  Then I used, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares, followed by Spellbinders Labels Sixteen.  (Most of my layers are all separated by low profile foam tape.)  The next layer is a circle made using Spellbinders Standard Circles LG and Standard Circles SM.  On top of that I layered Spellbinders Labels Fourteen.  My next layer is the small circle that the flower pot is stamped on.  Had I not used Nestabling on my layer below then I could have stamped directly on Labels Fourteen (more about that in a second).  Lastly two circle frames both made using Spellbinders Standard Circles LG and Standard Circles SM.  After I had the whole medallion assembled, I went back and added the decorative piece from Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Doily Accents and secured it in place with glue dots. 

Okay, back to the bling I used on Labels Fourteen.  I wanted something just to break up the alternating colors in the layers so I pulled this middle accent off of my Want2Scrap Nestabling sheet.  You will notice that it matches perfectly with Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two but there is nothing to say that you can’t use them on another shape or simply free standing.  These are just dazzling and the motif fits well under my circle and on top of Labels Fourteen.  These can be cut and used as your heart desires, so I foresee lots of use for these within my little pearl and gem addiction, lol!!

I have a quick Becca Bit to share with you today, by request, about the pearls I use on my cards and a tip on placement:

    I am so happy that companies are coming out with accessories (bling, pearls, stamps) specifically with Spellbinders in mind. It’s the best of both worlds. Your card is beautiful as always Becca, and I know I speak on behalf of all that we appreciate you sharing your skills with us. I always look forward to one of your tutorials, they’re always informative, and they’re always well done.

    Girl – you are LOVED!
    Thank you

  • Linda ClarkMay 6, 2011 - 12:12 pm

    Hello Becca, I love your card today. It is soooo soft and elegant looking. It has many layers and I am trying to do more layers but it seems I put down a couple then end up taking some off. Your layers look as though you worked for hours to achieve that elegance. I think you teach us all something every day. I was not aware of the Want to Scrap Nestabling!! How great is that. I will definitely be looking for that. Again, thank you so very much for sharing your talent, your shopping finds and all your tips. Bless you, Hugs LindaReplyCancel

  • BernieMay 6, 2011 - 12:13 pm

    Beautiful card too!

  • JaniceMay 6, 2011 - 12:31 pm

    Becca, I have been using the dollies now after seeing your designs. Love how easy it is to get such an elegant image. Last night I was working with browns and used a stamp pad to color the dollie so it was beige and not white. I also used stickles and colored the largest solid designs on the dollie. Wow, it looks so cool and then I added pearls or crystals. Honestly, I can hardly believe what a beautiful card I created. Thanks for your inspiration!

    Beautiful card and love all the layers too. Thank-you for sharing your video–such a simple idea that I never thought of!! Perfect. I was “pulling” them apart and oh my, what a mess and I’d end up pulling the glue off of some. Thank-you so much

  • Ree DonnellyMay 7, 2011 - 9:08 am

    Thank you, Becca. So, do find that pulling to the side, rather than straight up, works best? I find when I take the tweezers & pull straight up, the adhesive sometimes will stay on the sheet, and I’m left with the bling without adhesive. Frustrating. So, I’ll give it a try! Again, thanks! Have a wonderful weekend and…HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!!ReplyCancel

  • ConniecrafterMay 7, 2011 - 10:03 am

    I wish I had your knack for layering, when you say low profile foam tape, is it less than 1/4 in. do you find that at like Michaels?
    Lovely cardReplyCancel

  • Sylvia/LittleTreasuresMay 7, 2011 - 11:25 am

    Beautiful Layers and Color. Your sentiment stamping is so VIVID and BOLD, I need to practice that. Love the little flowers. Thanks for the Becca Bit, I always wondered about those circle pearls, hear I thought you had the patience of Job. Glad to know there’s a quick way.ReplyCancel
