Everyday Spring Continues...with Lemoncraft and JustRite Dies

LemonCraft EveryDay Spring continues into Summer....

The  Lemoncraft 'EveryDay Spring' collection is perfect for this time of year because it is happy and cheery and fresh looking with the bright greens and pinks.  Green and pink are my favorite color combinations. 

Today I have created a layout and a card using this beautiful fun collection. First, I will present my layout.   I have included the beautiful LemonCraft chipboard to match the collection.  You can see the chipboard flourish with butterflies  I added. I also used the fun buttons  and cheery flowers from the collection.

Photo credit shout out to Pamela Choate photography.  




This is available and I'll add YOUR photo. 
Now for the cool part....this is in my ETSY shop and is available and ready to be customized with your photo.  And even better....I'll add your quality photo if you send it to me.  I'll make sure it's perfectly blended and looks great with the layout.

Part two of my LemonCraft-i-ness is a card I created also using  Lemoncraft 'EveryDay Spring' collection.  I Used the flowers and button on this card also - but I also cut some flowers from the gorgeous sheet of die cuts.  




The pretty oval "frame" diecut is from JustRite Papercraft.  They have a beautiful selection of original dies and stamps.  This is the JustRite Hello Decorative Oval Frame Die .

Butterfly Card - Flying Unicorns and JustRite

I'm enjoying the opportunity to mix the Flying Unicorn kit with the wonderful dies from JustRite.  The Flying Unicorn kit for July had some wonderful rustic looking papers.  The small 6x6 pad included in the kit for smaller projects and cards featured Prima's Vintage Emporium collection.  


To help my card achieve that rustic look, I grabbed the Butterfly Cardfront Die  from JustRite Papercraft.   The sweet little butterflies on my card were also created by layering the tiny butterfly dies from the same die set.  I added a bit of ink to the edges of the wings to set them off and give them some definition.

There are also some additional detailed embellishments on the card that were included in the July Flying Unicorns kit; the bee trim. the flowers from 49 and Market paper company, the buttons and  some web weave trim.  The web weave is very subtle under the flowers but it's very cool stuff. 


One last close up for the day.  This image shows off the darling butterfly details in the die.  They are subtle and sort of get lost in the image when seen at a distance, however up close they are perfectly sweet.  




Thanks for stopping here for a look.  You can find many more stamps and dies from JustRite on their website and Facebook page.

JustRite Blooming Vines Faith Card


I'm here to show off my wonderful JustRite Papercraft dies and stamps.  Today I am featuring another new background stamp called "Blooming Vines".   I showcased the Text and the Chicken Wire stamp already and they are marvelous.  You can see the Text Background stamp and the Chicken Wire Background stamp here

   


The "Blooming Vines" stamp is really delicate and beautiful.  Stamp it on a card and leave it uncolored or add some pops of color and make a bold visual.  I decided on a third option - color in softly with blush pinks and greens.  I used a waterbrush and really light watercolors from Prima's Watercolor Confections - Decadent Pies.  The Confections are bold and gorgeously pigmented so I added more water to thin out the color.  


My card is topped with Prima flowers from the "Tales of You & Me " collection by Frank Garcia.  The flowers surround a graceful die set from JustRite - JustRite Papercrafts - Joy Oval Frame Die .  The die has delicate little scalloped hearts all around the oval - really a simple yet elegant touch.  


My sentiment is the "Faith" die and it's is due to be released by JustRite soon!  Stay tuned.  

Prima Marketing is having a 30 Watercolor Challenge.  I used this card to enter day 1, watercolors with a stamp,  and day 24 - watercolor with a wash.    You can play along as well.  

Rules are simple - grab some Prima Confections and pick a topic in the list below.  Then post to Facebook using the hash tag #WATERCOLORWITHPRIMA. See details here.

The JustRite stamps are perfect companions for this challenge.

Rustic Butterfly Card - Flying Unicorn with 49 and Market amd JustRite




Flying Unicorns July Release

The July kit from the Flying Unicorns was quite a beautiful treat filled with natural elements and an earthy feel.  The featured collection is Vintage Artistry from 49 and Market.  The papers are beautifully subtle so I kept this piece in all neutrals and added some dies from JustRite Papercrafts.  

The kit also contained wonderful flowers from 49 and Market as well as  a die cut sheet from the Vintage Artistry collection.    The beautiful butterfly was cut from the die cut sheet called Flora and Fauna.  

This is the die I used for the card -  JustRite Hope Oval Frame - DIE05048
The die creates a beautiful delicate look.
