Good morning to you blog friends!! I always love the beginning of a month because all the new stamps come out and there are so many possibilities. My mind sure gets busy, I just wish my hands could keep up!! Today I get to show one of the new JustRite Stamper Releases called Smile. I really do like how upbeat all the sentiments these are designed to have extra wide borders. Because of that, it seemed very easy to get my layers in place.
I essentially created a medallion (are you shocked?) that from the bottom up included a white store bought doily, then Spellbinders Lotus Pendant then my JustRite 3 1/4″ border, cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles LG and Spellbinders Standard Circles SM. To pull some of the color back into the medallion I nestled a little circle rim inside my border. The vertical green panel was bordered with Spellbinders Parisian Accents while the horizontal green panel was bordered with Spellbinders Jumbo Scalloped Borderabilites Petite.
I used the newest technique, Figure Eight Loops on my Peg Bow Maker for the little bow and the Ruffled Flower Tutorial to create a little eyelet flower to go along with my doily. Once I’ve figured something out I love to use it a couple of times to get it down pat!
By the way, JustRite is having a fab sale this week – you can take a peek at the goodies HERE.
