Happy Anniversary-JustRite!

Good morning and happy weekend to you!  I still have a couple cards to show you from JustRite's January release.  For today's cards I used several new products from JustRite.  I used their new Heart and Frame dies.  I love the lacy and delicate look of this frame.  I stamped the sentiment and little flowers from the Sweet Flowers and Vines set.  I added a layer of glossy accents on top of it for a bit of dimension.

I decided to add  a touch of silver with JustRite's newest addition, Tonic Glitter! 
They also carry puffy paints and I am having such a good time incorporating them into my cards! I used some silver paint in the corners to continue my accents of silver.

It is hard to believe we are at the end of January already....time sure has a way of flying a bit too fast these days! My son is turning 19 and he is coming home today.  It will be so sweet to have both my kiddos with me.  
Have a wonderful day and be sure to check back tomorrow! I have one last JustRite card to share!

Love Birds!

Good morning! I am up on the SRM Blog today with a new set from Jane's Doodles called, Love Birds!  I think it is the sweetest set! I wanted a bit of moonlight behind my birds. (Because it's romantic to profess one's love in the moonlight right?) I punched a circle from a piece of scrap paper.  I used both the negative and positive pieces here.  I placed the circle in the middle of my paper and sponged shades of blue around it.  Then I took the negative piece, placed it over the paper, and sponged my yellow.  I went back with a dauber and sponged a bit of white around the moon.  I wanted a bit of sparkle, so I took a paint brush and a bit of glossy accents, and "painted" around the moon. I sprinkled a bit of glitter.

The birds were stamped on a separate piece of paper, as well as the hearts, sentiment, and tree branch.  All of it was colored with Copic markers.  Everything was fussy cut and glued in place over my moon.  I added glossy accents to the hearts, wings, and leaves and then sprinkled glitter.  I added Flower Soft to my tree branch. I added a doily behind the image for added sweetness.  ;)

For my birds' bellies, I used a white gel pen.  I love how textural this card looks and feels.  It was one of those cards that I truly loved as soon as it was completed.  And believe me, lately this hasn't been happening too often! LOL!

The next few weeks are going to be an emotional ride as Cortney just got her "move-in" date yesterday. My feelings are a bit all over.  It will be a difficult transition for me as I've been her caregiver for so long.  She has been my shadow, my side-kick, my little partner in crime. My days are filled with her, and soon, my days will be quieter, emptier.  I will need to fill them up with something else. That will take time and some getting used to.
I appreciate all of your support and words of kindness. It helps immensely. :)

Butterfly Background Stamp-JustRite

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend!
I have another January JustRite release to share with you.  It is this incredible, gorgeous, butterfly background stamp.  It doesn't seem to matter how many butterfly products I have, they never get old!
Created by Michele Kovack
I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it in white.  I gave it a rainbow water color wash using my Zig Clean Brush markers.  I stamped the 3 butterflies on a separate panel in coordinating colors. 
I stamped an additional butterfly in white on a piece of vellum.  I fussy cut it and adhered it to the center butterfly.

I added silk ribbon and some gemstones to finish off the card.
