JustRite Non-Traditional Christmas Card

Hi everyone I have been away on vacation, which I enjoyed so very much, so I didn't have time to play in my craft corner at all, but on the bright side while I was away I got to go craft shopping. Yeah!!  I didn't get a chance to play along in the last challenge at JustRite, so hurried to try to get a card done so I could enter it into this challenge. The challenge at JustRite this week is to create a project using the theme Non-Traditional Christmas.

To make this card I used JustRite Stamps Merry and Bright, and Festive Poinsettia. Dies used were Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A, Decorative Labels Twenty-Eight, and Layered Poinsettia. Memory Box die Cabrini Ornament. Design paper used is from My Mind's Eye Merry Little Christmas. To color the ornament I used Copic markers RV21, R83 and B32. Images and sentiment were embossed using Queen's Gold embossing powder from The Artful Stamper.

Summertime Love

Hi Everyone hope you are all having a great summer so far. I was chosen as May's winner at Crafting Musketeers and was asked if I wanted to be a GDT member for July's challenge, so of course, I said yes. The theme for this challenge is Summertime.

 I made the first layer for this card from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and Design paper is  American Crafts May Berry. Next layer is made from Spellbinders die Decorative Labels Twenty-Eight with a stamped image from JustRite's Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five. I colored the image using Spectrum Noir markers CT3, CT2 and Copic Markers YG63, BG75, E23, and E47. I also stamped the image on another piece of cardstock and colored using the same markers. I then fussy cut the flowers and pop them up onto the stamped image.  I then glued two flourishes from Sizzix Decorative Flourishes, and added a Bow to the top left corner. In the bottom right corner I stamped a sentiment from the same JustRite set onto Spellbinders Opulent Ovals and popped it up as well. Next I added some butterflies using Cherry-Lynn die Exotic Butterfly small.

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
