Warmest Wishes

Hi there blog friends.  What a week it has been!!  My highlight has been some of the little items I’m making in the background that you’ll get to see in July, and of course the frame pincushion.  I’ve got my ears wide open to hear if anyone has found the frames and if anyone has tried to make one!!  That brings me to my card today . . .did I mention that JustRite Stampers is releasing new stamps all week?  Well, they are!!  There’s something for everyone in this release but it wouldn’t quite be complete without some new Christmas stamps for us to play with :-). I’m still tinkering with Clean and Simple (for me) and today I even pulled out the Copic markers!!

The stamp set is one illustrated by Diane Arthurs and is called Warmest Wishes.  I layered up a hand cut pennant with Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, Spellbinders Standard Ovals and Spellbinders Grand Labels Four.  I went with some fun but unconventional Christmas colors. 

Stamps: JustRite Stampers – Warmest Wishes
Paper: My Minds Eye, The Paper Company
Ink: Colorbox Chalk – Dark Red
Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, Spellbinders Standard Ovals LG, Spellbinders Grand Labeels Four, Seambinding, Zva Creative Pearls, Copic Markers

Here are the other Design Team members who are showing new JustRite Stamps today also:

    I love the colors and design techniques you used on this bright cheery holiday card. As always, another marvelous creation by you. I just wish I had half your creativity. I was in Michaels yesterday and did a store wide search for the frames. Unfortunately I had no luck in finding them.ReplyCancel

  • Lillian ChildJune 30, 2011 - 9:40 am

    How darling is this??!! Simply adorable! I am such a HUGE fan of polka dots!ReplyCancel

  • Carla MayfieldJune 30, 2011 - 9:43 am

    This is gorgeous! The colors you used are fab, and your copic coloring is perfect! I love JR stamps, every one of them!ReplyCancel

  • DonnaJune 30, 2011 - 9:45 am

    I tripped right off to my Michael’s store, but was greatly disappointed. No frames, and no copic markers! I’ve been in many Michael’s store, and I’m sorry to say the one where I live in Johnson City, TN, is by far the worst! It’s in a constant state of total disorganization, and the employees are not the friendliest either! So sad, because I love the other Michael’s stores. I wish you could order from their website!ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie KraftJune 30, 2011 - 9:46 am

    Beautiful, Becca! Love the colors and all the wonderful layers!ReplyCancel

  • VioletJune 30, 2011 - 10:02 am

    I love the colors of the paper and how you matched the copic markers to the paper. Wonderful as always.ReplyCancel

  • michelle frasherJune 30, 2011 - 10:26 am

  • Francie (Montreal)June 30, 2011 - 10:32 am

    I can’t believe that Christmas is just 1/2 a year away. Wow! This is a cheery, magical card that captures the fun of the season. I like the idea of having the pennant as part of the layering. Who wudda thunk? Well you, of course, Becca. Nicely done.ReplyCancel

  • BernieJune 30, 2011 - 11:11 am

    Beautiful card! I plan to try one of those frames as soon as I can get to Michael’s or Joann’s and find a few frames. I’ll look at the dollar store, too. I think those frames will be perfect little Christmas gifts to have on hand for female friends and family.ReplyCancel

    I love this one Becca. The new releases are precious and you have colored it so bright and cheery. I also love that dp with the colorful dots. Boy, I DO need to get started on Christmas cards but my hands have been so full with Bruce, it is hard to even stay caught up with month to month bd cards. LOL Send up a prayer for me, I need all I can get!!ReplyCancel

    Nooooooooo, it’s only going on July. We had such a horrible winter. I don’t want to see Christmas yet…LOL. I do love your card though. The colors look awesome together. Didn’t see the frames at my Michael’s in the dollar bin. Next week after the holiday celebrations are over, I’m going to look again. I want to make a pin cushion too. Thank you for the how to video. :-)
    Happy Independence Day Becca and bloggy friends !ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, I just love your cards! They are so pretty and you use so many different types of layers… you are just an inspiration. Anyway, I am trying to do a banner like yours and I can’t seem to get the layer points to look even. Can you share your expertise?ReplyCancel
