Dainty Filigree Leaves

Hi there blog friends! Wanna peek at two new stamp sets I designed for Justrite Papercrafts? They’re debuting today and the JustRite ladies have made some magnificent examples to show you.  I’m holding my hand up and pleading guilty because when I design stamps, I normally design something I’d very much like to have in my own stash.   I love it when I’m tempted to reach for a set more than once so I try to design things that will get as much mileage as possible.  The background of my card today is Filigree Leaves Cling Background Stamp.  It’s very dainty and delicate and can be left plain or a dot of marker on the leaves.  It looks so sweet embossed.  The main purpose I had in mind for this design, was to make small swatches of wrapping paper for jewelry, soaps and candles – small things.  The sentiment is from What I Life About You Clear Stamp Set – another set that you can personalize for all the loved ones in your life.


My card today is simple (I didn’t want to cover up that background) and uses basic dies you probably already have in your stash.  I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B along with Spellbinders Standard Circles SM cut on the right side of the card bordered with Spellbinders Standard Circles LG.  I sprinkled the background with pink gems for flowers.

Here’s your Step-By-Step Recap, from the bottom up, just in case you’d like to make one too.  Start out with a cream card base cut to  5-1/8″ x 7-1/4, foam tape, die cut from pink cardstock later from A2 Matting Basics B #6, cream scrap with stamped sentiment, foam tape, die cut scrap with Standard Circles LG #5 (use negative), die cut layer from stamped background cut from A2 Matting Basics A #5 and before placing, cut using Standard Circles SM #6.

    Hi Myrna (Comment #4)
    The pink circle is cut from a small scrap piece of paper barely larger than the circle. It’s very easy to glue in place so that it’s lined up.ReplyCancel
