Card using the Flying Unicorn Kit and JustRite Dies


The Flying Unicorn Kit has finally arrived!

Time to play with the July kit from the Flying Unicorns.  This month the kit came with a 6x6 pad of Prima's Vintage Emporium paper for the smaller projects, and some vintage buttons and rustic flowers for embellishments. 


I pulled out my JustRite dies to assist in my card making.  The background was made using the following dies shown below: 


Here is a close up of the lovely embellishments.  I topped one of the 49th and Market flowers with the vintage button from the kit.  I completed the card with raffia.  

I have about 6 feet of raffia leftover from a 12 ounce packet I bought.  haaaaaa - I thought it was about 12 ounces , then when it arrived it was a crazy giant package.  I could make a nest for Miss Escape Kitty even, or a hula skirt, the possibilities are endless - though I'm trying to use it up one project and card at a time.  

Back to the card.....
I like showing dimensional cards so you get an idea of what the card really looks like.  Isn't that JustRite background die  JustRite A2 Graceful Lines Die -DIE05046 amazing?

JustRite Multi-Step Landscape Stamp - Sympathy Card




I created this peaceful sympathy card using  JustRite Papercraft Multi-step landscape stamp sets. 

It's a simple card and clearly expresses your heartfelt sympathy. No need for additional embellishments.  
   The oval was cut using the JustRite Hello Decorative Oval Frame Die .  I used the oval as a template to know where I needed to stampy the landscape.

My landscape was then created using a variety of Tim Holtz distress inks.  

Why is this Multistep stamp so cool? 

This is a multistep landscape stamp that helps you build your own design with trees, grass, rocks and everything you need for a peaceful landscape.  

Why are these so cool?  Picture this is your head.....You have an intricate tree stamp and you want the final stamped image to have some definition when stamped - maybe have some different colored leaves for example.  In the past you'd have to get out your colored markers and color the actual stamp with different colors - the trunk needs brown, the leaves are different.  Once you think you have your colors where they need to be, you stamp - while holding your breath for the results.  

No more!  The guesswork is gone. These let you decide how to color your image one stamp at a time.  Go ahead and pull out the brown and stamp the tree trunk .  Next grab your various green inks (or orange, yellow and brown for autumn) and stamp away with confidence.  Stamped layers are really easy to manage.

Lemoncraft EveryDay Spring Layouts

LemonCraft EveryDay Spring Collection

I'm here today to share some projects for June using LemonCrafts's EveryDay Spring collection.   This post was featured at Lemoncraft here.    


The 'EveryDay Spring' collection is new and is a collection you must have.  It is fun and bright and beautiful.  I thought I would add my pretty niece to a layout using 'EveryDay Spring 06 sheet'. 


This is the first layout using this gorgeous collection. LemonCraft also has beautiful chipboard to match the collection.  You can see the chipboard flourish I added. I also used the fun buttons from the collection.  


I added accents of watercolor to the page using the Prima Marketing Confections Tropicals watercolors.  

The music paper in the background was added and glued to the page by painting a layer of clear matte gel medium onto the paper, then over the music paper to secure it in place and make sure it doesn't peel off.  

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.  
You can find it in the ETSY shop here.  






This is the second layout created using the  gorgeous 'EveryDay Spring' collection. 
I love the bright pink and green colors of the collection so I added watercolors to my card to match the paper.  

I also added the watercolor accents to this piece as well.  




I can customize this layout as well.  You can find this layout ready to be customized in my ETSY shop



Thanks so much for visiting today.  

Be sure to visit the ETSY shop and grab this while it's available.

Spellbinders - Prizm Die Cutting and Embosing




The Spellbinders® Shopping Star Team is a group of crafting enthusiasts who love Spellbinders products and want to share their crafting (and shopping) experience with you. Their mission is to help you find the perfect products to bring your projects to life. Check out their videos and see them unbox their shopping haul.

The Spellbinders Prizm
Spellbinders sent the new compact portable Prizm , die cutting and embossing machine to review.  

This is a fabulous solution for folks who like to be on the move and take their crafting supplies with them - on vacation, to outings and craft get-togethers, cropping ( scrap ) events, those folks who are short on space and cannot fit a large die cutting machine in the craft space. 



My Projects:
The tiny Die-D-lites are great for making quick cards, smaller projects and accent pieces on scrapbook pages.  I decided to showcase the dies by making some simple cards.  

And these are the projects I created using the sweet Prizm and Spellbinders Die D-lites. 





This card was made using Spellbinders Die D-Lites Layered Cake S1-006
