And I made a CAS spring-like card for today:
Very clean and simple in fresh spring colors. The paper is Almost Amethyst Textured by SU and a scrap of Kaiser Lilac Avenue DP. My pretty little tulip image is from one of the newest JustRite releases, A Breath of Spring— and it certainly is!!! My sentiment is from another JustRite set called Seeds of Kindness— a perfect accompaniment for all their new floral images.
Here’s a look at the items I used. A Breath of Spring is made to fit the Large Oval Stamper and Seeds of Kindness is made to fit the 1 5/8″ Stamper (will also fit the 2″Stamper). However, if you will notice on today’s project, you don’t see an oval or circle anywhere. Today I chose to cut them out with my Rectangle Nestabilities by Spellbinders. I just want to point out again that just because the JustRite stamps come made to fit on round or oval stampers, it doesn’t mean they always have to be used in that way. Once you stamp your image, the sky is truly the limit. You can cut, mount and frame your images in any number of ways. I truly love the oval frames in A Breath of Spring, but decided to let them wait for another day as I opted to go rectangular today to fit in with a clean and simple style for today’s Stamp Simply Challenge.
I used Kaiser Pearls in Lush as accents. I used a 1″ Double Faced Satin Ribbon running under my focal image and I glued on a 1.25″ Silk Ribbon Bow made on the Bow Easy.
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store carries the following items used on today’s project: 100% Silk Ribbon and 1″ Double Sided Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Rectangle Nestabilities (4 pack), Kaiser Lilac Avenue Designer Paper, Kaiser Pearls, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink.
Thank you all so much for stopping in today. It’s been a week since I’ve posted and I apologize for that! I’ve been trying to organize paperwork for our appointment with the accountant — it’s that time of year — among all the other daily activities. I do have one last Valentine card completed and that post will pop up on Saturday afternoon, so hope you can check back in then. I truly do appreciate all your visits! Thank you SO much!
