Everyone Smiles

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.

  • Francie (Montreal)May 5, 2011 - 10:02 am

    Well, that’s as pretty as a picture! Oh I do adore your cards. This might be the best one yet. Love the sentiment. It has a special meaning for those of us living in Quebec. French is our official language but 10% of us are mother-tongue English. Fortunately, most everyone speaks both languages now. And that’s a good thing. however, I digress. You’re card is a beauty and I think I just fell in love with it. Thank you again for all you do. You are appreciated more than words can express.ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful card! I love the sentiment – it says so much. I live in a Spanish speaking country but am no where near fluent in Spanish. A smile goes a long way.ReplyCancel

    This card is gorgeous! Gotta get my peg bow maker put together this weekend so I can try to make this figure eight bow. Placed my first Just Rite order, I just had to have this ‘Smile’ stamp set. Love all the sentiments in it. Becca, how awesome it is to see your gorgeous cards in the Just Rite on-line catalogs. Thanks again for sharing your creations and inspiration. In appreciation – Have a great weekend!ReplyCancel
