Extended Family Large Fancy Sentiments



Hello Everyone!  Today I've made a card especially for my almost 11yr old niece who loves yellow and orange!  To create this card I've used JustRite Papercraft's new Extended Family Large Fancy Sentiments and Romantic Wild Roses (released on Tuesday).  Her birthday will be here before I know it and this year, at least I won't be making a card at the last minute!!  :)


I've used a base of Tangerine Tango and layered with white and another piece of Tangerine Tango cut with A2 Divine Eloquence.  Next I took a piece of white and used Romantic Wild Roses to create a background using Memento New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves and Tangelo. (For the lighter shade, I've lightly stamped it off on some scratch paper first and then stamped it.  The darker shade has been inked and stamped directly over the top.)  I've then used Memento Dandelion ink to stamp the little round image randomly on the page.  Finally I lightly airbrushed some Copic YR30 over the page to soften the look.  I've then cut this with Labels Twenty Eight and attached it to the front.  Around this I've attached a piece of green ribbon.  I've used the same inks as above (plus Cantaloupe for the centres) to stamp the largest rose and matching leaves.  I've cut these out and popped them up on foam tape.  Next I've stamped the "To My" and "Niece" sentiments from Extended Family Large Fancy Sentiments onto a piece of white and cut it into a notched tag.

Stamps - Extended Family Large Fancy Sentiment, Romantic Wild Roses (JustRite)
Ink - Memento New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Tangelo, Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Rich Cocoa
Paper - Tangelo Tango, White
Accessories - Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence, Copic YR30, Airbrush System, Green Ribbon, X-press It Foam Tape

Coffee House


Hello Everyone!  Today's post is all about caffeine!  How many of you crave your first coffee of the day?  Well this set is for YOU!!  Coffee House is the latest offering by JustRite Papercraft and it's perfect for all those coffee themed projects for your caffeine addicted friends and family.  :)

I've gone with something a little different by creating a 3D project with my Silhouette Cameo.  I've used the 3D Teacup Box template and cut the base pieces out of Chocolate Chip and the patterned paper is Miss Match by Kaisercraft.  I've taped it all together with X-press It High Tac Tape.

Once I've taped the box together, I've stamped the sentiment from Coffee House in Memento Rich Cocoa onto cream card and cut it out with JustRite Vintage Labels Seven Die

While it was still in the die, I've lightly sponged some Memento Desert Sand ink over the sentiment and then attached it to the front of the cup.  Next I've made some flowers out of Spellbinders Blooms Three Dies, Chocolate Chip card and some random paper that had similar colours to my other DP.  To finish I've accented with a brown bling flourish.

Want even more coffee inspired projects???  Wait until you see what the JR Girls have in store for you!

Romantic Wild Roses


Hello Everyone!  Are you ready to get romantic......about Romantic Wild Roses that is!  This is the brand new set released by JustRite Papercraft and it's a two-step stamp set which you can use to create beautiful cards for any number of occasions!


As you can see, this set doesn't come with any sentiments, so use it on its own, or use your favourite sentiment set!  I decided to make a Get Well card for today's card.  Just over a month ago, my Dad suffered two strokes and landed in the Acute Stroke Unit with three other people.  One of these is a lady called Patty.  We became friendly with Patty and her sister-in-law while they were in the ASU together and when the time came they both moved to the Rehabilitation Unit which is where they both are today.  I made this card for Patty as a little thing to cheer her up.  I'm taking Dad chocolate which I *know* will make him happy!  :)

I've used a base of Pool Party and layered with Kraft and Tropical Punch DP.  Next I've added a strip of white and topped with more Pool Party randomly stamped using Romantic Wild Roses and Versamark Ink.  Around this I've attached some ribbon.  Next I cut a piece of white with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Eight and started constructing my image out of the various pieces in the Romantic Wild Roses stamp set.  I've used a variety of Memento Inks - Angel Pink, Rose Bud, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Cantaloupe.  I then lightly added some BG0000 Copic ink around the image and edges.  I've stamped the sentiment from Fancy Large Sentiments in Rose Bud.  I've framed it with Baked Brown Sugar cut with Decorative Labels Twenty Eight and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a bow and some lemon pearls.

Stamps - Romantic Wild Roses, Fancy Large Sentiments (JustRite)
Ink - Memento Angel Pink, Rose Bud, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Cantaloupe
Paper - Pool Party, Kraft, White, Baked Brown Sugar, Kaisercraft Tropical Punch DP
Accessories - Spellbinders Labels 28 and Decorative Labels 28, BG0000 Copic, Ribbon, Bow Easy, Lemon Pearl, X-press It Foam Tape

French Lilac


Hello Everyone!!  Did you see on the 15th that Power Poppy released its latest digi in their Instant Garden??  The Instant Gardeners did a GORGEOUS job of showing off this beauty and now the Bloom Brigade get to play with it!!  My I introduce.....French Lilac!
http://powerpoppy.com/collections/digital-stamps/products/french-lilac

As a digi, this file can be made larger or smaller to fit your project design and comes with the Thinking of You sentiment.  French Lilacs come in a variety of colours, from cornflower blues, purples, pinks... and they also come in white, yellow, and red!  What colour do YOU want to make them???  I've gone with a pink/purple palette for my project, I guess that's just what called out to me.  Now I know most people would arrange this with the flower pointed up, but I went with the hanging down look - figured I'd be a bit different!  :)

I've started with a base of purple bazzill, layered with white and topped with more purple cut with Spellbinders Tranquil Moments die.  Around this I've attached a piece of silver ribbon.  I've printed the French Lilac image and sentiment onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (V01, V12, V15, V91, V93, E23, E27, YG21, YG91, YG93, YG97, R24, R59).  I've then used the largest Spellbinders Elegant Ovals die to cut it out and then popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a silver bow to the ribbon.

Stamp - French Lilac (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Purple Bazzill, White
Ink - Printer
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Tranquil Moments and Elegant Ovals, Silver Ribbon, Bow Easy, X-press It Foam Tape

I know you can't wait to see the beautiful creations the Bloom Brigade have made today, so follow the links and see what awaits!!

 And don't miss the matching SVG Thank You Daffodil Digital Cut File!!


 I love florals and this one is soooooo easy to create with whether you use the SVG file or not and bound to make a statement on any of your projects!


I've used a base of (aptly named) Daffodil Delight cardstock layered with Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla.  On top of this is more Daffodil Delight cut with A2 Divine Eloquence and then I've wrapped some yellow ribbon around it all.  Next I've stamped Upcycled Woodgrain Background in Memento Desert Sand onto Very Vanilla and cut with Labels 28.  Use the JR SVG Thank You Daffodil Digital Cut File to cut the exact shape.  Next stamp the image from Thank You Daffodil in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Y21, Y35, Y38, YG11, YG13, YG17).  Stamp the sentiment directly onto the background in Memento Rich Cocoa and then pop the daffodil up on foam tape.


I've made a matching journal using a Spirax Notebook and covering with a piece of random paper from deep in my stash.  Down the side I've added a piece of Very Vanilla punched with a Lattice Border Punch topped with Chocolate Chip and more DP.  Over this I've attached some yellow ribbon.  For the feature panel, I've used a piece of Daffodil Delight topped with Very Vanilla and then used a paper piercer to pierce around the edge.  Then I've followed the steps above to finish the panel.

Stamps - Thank You Daffodil, Upcycled Woodgrain (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Bleninding Card, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Misc DP

Morning Glory


Hello Everyone!  Today is Day One of the JustRite Papercraft February Release!  The JR Girls are showcasing a GORGEOUS Morning Glory set and a fabby background called Upcycled Woodgrain today and hope you love them as much as we do!


I just loved the Morning Glory image and decided to turn it into a Journal and Card set!  For the journal, I've used a Spirax Notebook and covered the front with some Maja Designs DP, punching the edge with the Spiral Punch.  Across this I've added a panel of white punched with the iron gate border punch and layered with more Maja Designs DP and wrapped some white crochet lace around it.  Stamp the Reversed Crackle Background in Memento Desert Sand onto Very Vanilla and mat with Marina Mist.  Attach to the previous panel and then wrap some blue ribbon around both.  Stamp the Morning Glory image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and colour with Copics (B60, B63, B66, G40, G43, G46, YR30).  Cut with Labels 25 and mat with Marina Mist cut with Majestic Labels 25.  I've finished by adding initials and clear rhinestones.

The card is made with a base of Marina Mist layered with Very Vanilla and some Maja Designs DP.  Wrap blue and white ribbons around the layers.  Follow the steps above for stamping, colouring and constructing the feature panel.  Stamp the sentiment in black, cut with an oval border punch and pop up on foam tape.  Finish with a bow.

Potted Primroses

Hello Everyone!  Get ready to smile because today the Bloom Brigade have lots of cheery goodness from Power Poppy in the form of primroses!!  These bright, happy flowers come in a variety of colours and native to western and southern Europe, parts of northern Africa and also south west Asia.  Primroses are often named as the February Flower (along with the Violet)!  Apparently, if you give someone a primrose it lets that 'someone' know you can't live without them!  For our February Release, let me introduce you to......Potted Primroses!



I've used a base of Daffodil Delight and layered with white and Violet Crush DP.  Across this is another piece of white punched with a scallop border punch and topped with more Violet Crush.  Around these layers I've attached a piece of white ribbon.  I've stamped the flowers and sentiment from Potted Primroses in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E30, E31, E35, 39, G12, G24, G28, Y11, Y15, Y17, E93, E95, E97, E17, E21, RV21, RV23, RV63, RV66, C5, W0, 0).  I've cut this out with Spellbinders' Labels 40 and matted it with Daffodil Delight cut with Labels 40 Decorative Elements.  I've popped this up on X-press It Foam Tape and finished with a bow and swirl clip tied with yellow gingham ribbon.
