Sweet friends, lots to cover today and let me just mention you’ll find the winner of the Journal Trio at the bottom of my post. Now on to the the view for today – grab some coffee and get ready to browse – you’ll have spring fever before it’s all over :-) Today JustRite Papercraft is releasing new stamps and the design team had a wonderful time using Multi-Step Lilac Bouquet. There’s a full instruction sheet with step-by-step instructions on how to put a bouquet together – the sheet is reminiscent of paint by numbers because it tells you exactly what to do. I combined by card with JustRite Sympathy Handwritten Sentiments and used the Multi-Step Lilac Bouquet SVG files to cut all the flowers. I had an absolute ball playing with this set. At first glance, I thought it might be out of my comfort zone but not so, once I started playing and faollowing the instruction sheet – I was home free!
If you look carefully, you’ll see that I didn’t get it “perfect”. . . no worries, that’s the charm of this multi-stamping because it’s the idea of the shading and definition that give this way of stamping its beauty. I eyeballed lining things up and decided to go with the flow and not let it be stressful. I’m just in love with the color, the contrast and the possibilities.
My 5-1/2″ x 7″ hinged card uses Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles as a frame filled in with Spellbinders Grate Effects. I tucked all the individual elements inside the window and a couple on top of the window to give the illusion of dept. Each individual item was easily attached with foam tape or a glue dot. The embellishment in the upper corner is from Spellbinders Imperial Square.
