Stamped Pansies colored with Spectrum Noir Markers

Today's project is a quick gift bag if there is not time to make a card AND find pretty paper to wrap a small token of appreciation - been there done that.  I purchased a set of these little gift bags at a jumbo craft store and have them in my stash for last minute celebrations.  Perfect size for a pretty lipgloss, gift cards etc.

I used a single stamp set from JustRite Papercraft for the both the flower details and the sentiment.  It is called:  

I also used Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy die template for the center panel and colored my flowers in with Spectrum Noir markers.

The JustRite Team created such beautiful samples for your inspiration

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful crafty weekend - I plan to spend some time in my craft room!!!

Sweet Magnolia Card

I created this card with so many occasions in mind.  The magnolia is so pretty yet incredibly striking in it's solo form.  The sentiments for this stamp set are plentiful ranging from love to sympathy which makes this a truly versatile stamp set to own.  

The stamp set is from JustRite Papercraft and it is called

I combined that with JustRite Custom Die Template called 

For a touch of elegance I also had an embossed panel using Spellbinders brand new A Gilded Life 

The JustRite team have beautiful samples using this stamp set:

I have one more reveal for you tomorrow.  It's raining here - turning to snow later - so I am huddled, warm and toasty, in my craft room!  Hope you are having a crafty day too :)

That 70's Card

I am loving the 70's retro look at the moment.  I don't think I am quite ready for green and orange vinyl in my kitchen but on my cards and maybe a splash of color on clothing items here or there is totally within the realm of possibilities! The 70's was my inspiration for my Owl birthday card - from the colors, stamped images and the geometric cut-out die template this card has me thinking bellbottoms, headbands and Stayin' Alive!

Back to my card!  These cute owls & sentiment are part of JustRite's new set called Owl Be There.  They have a lot of sentiments to fit adorable images - including several owls, a tree stump and greenery.

Owl Be There

The die template is Spellbinders.  It is a brand new Expandable Pattern die template called

French Harmony

Ready for an overload of cuteness?  Here's the JustRite Team with their gorgeous projects

Hope you are super inspired to Get Your Groove On!  See you with another project tomorrow!

Modern Retro Birthday Card

This card is quite "springified" even though spring is not quite here yet - as I sit here writing this post there is a beautiful layer of fresh snow on the ground - I know spring is right around the corner so here is my birthday wish card filled with the hope and promise of spring!

My simple modern retro 70's inspired stitched flower, stem and leaves is a brand new JustRite Papercraft release for march.  It is called:

I also used a new Spellbinders die template set called:  5 x 7 Modern Stationary.  The shiny surface on my flower is a crafty glaze that dries beautifully once set to reveal a clear coat right over an inked and colored image!

The JustRite Team have outdone themselves with creativity and inspiration!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I have more projects for you this week so do come by again.
