Give Thanks Nested Frames by JustRite!

Good morning! Autumn is just around the corner although today in Chicago you wouldn't know it! It is supposed to reach 87 degrees with high humidity. But I'll take a random warm day here and there! JustRite has come out with a new fall inspired stamp set. It is called Give Thanks Nested Frames. This set is perfect for Thanksgiving cards! I stamped mine with brown Memento Ink an colored the leaves and acorns with my Copics, TG03, YG63, B31, B33. The edges were sponged in a deep brown. I cut and layered the frames. The edges were also glittered! (Big surprise there huh? LOL!) The sentiment was also stamped in brown and cut out with an oval Spellbinder's die. I did a bit of airbrushing with Copic YG03. The edges were also sponged in brown ink. The cardstock is by Papertrey in Ripe Avocado and Cream. The cream panel was embossed with the Linen Impression plate.



The leaf was created using 2 different Spellbinder's leaf dies. I used old dictionary paper and a piece of cream felt. The felt was sprayed lightly with adhesive and a chunky glitter was applied. I added a button and piece of old lace tied with twine.


Be sure to check out the JustRite blog to see the other designers creations with this fabulous new set!

My girlfriend Jen's benefit was held this past Saturday......and we were able to raise a little more than $10,000 for charity! Which is so awesome and definitely the way Jen would have wanted things! Today should have been her 39 birthday.......I guess she will have her cake wearing her angel wings........


Thank you for all of your support and well wishes!
