Hi friends, wow, this has been a busy week! This week also marks a new release for JustRite Papercraft and today we’re sharing creations made with Stacking Sentiments and A2 Woodgrained Upcycled Frame Background Stamp. I zeroed in on the Stacking Sentiments and found there are so many ways to change them around to get a tall sentiment to your liking. For my card today I created a diecut background using 9 of the center pieces from Spellbinders Victorian Medallion Three. To embellish I used Spellbinders Pierced Squares and added a smaller frame using Spellbinders Classic Squares LG, Spellbinders Classic Squares SM. Spellbinders 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace was tall enough to accommodate two of the stacked sentiments. I finished off with flowers made from Spellbinders Urban Blooms and embellished with Spellbinders Foliage Flourish. This card is a little larger than my norm, at 6-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ and will call for a custom envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.
I love adding detail and textures with dies and it was so easy with the 9 cut pieces. Keep in mind that this, like my other designs, can be simplified. These are only suggestions but it’s very likely you already have squares and other basics like flourishes in your stash. I just have to say that this flower has become a staple in my repertoire and I make lots of them at the same time – you’ll see them popping up all over the place and many of you have asked for a tutorial – I’ll be adding that tutorial soon!!
