Friends and Roses Card JRFC #089
This week's Challenge at JustRite is Anything goes. We are to use one of our favorite JustRite stamps. I love their stamps, so it's really difficult to choose a favorite.
Most of JustRites stamps are so easy to mix and match to use parts and sayings from different stamp sets with each other. I don't know whether this is my favorite or not, because I have so many favorites, but I really love the flowered and lace stamps by designer Amy Tedder, so I chose this one.
This set, Spring Rose Medallions, has a lot of nice sentiments, it has matching custom dies, it works well with some others of my favorites, the Lace Background stamp and the Lace Medallions set, and it's clean and open. I don't really like the ones with too much going on, it makes it difficult to see the beautiful parts. This set leaves white space inside the medallions so you can add as little or as much as you want. (Wow, did I just say that when I'm showing this card which has so much going on)???!!! Normally I don't have this much going on in my cards, because I prefer showcasing certain elements in my card rather than having a lot of competing stuff.
Anyway, I cut the medallion using JustRite's Custom Nested Oval Medallion Labels Dies by Spellbinders. It was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with gold EP. I colored it with Copics, shaded it with Brilliance pink, and outlined with my Krylon pen.
The oval layer uses Spellbinders Floral Ovals. This was also shaded with the Brilliance pink, and outlined with some pink pearls from my stash. The inside of the oval was cut with a smaller Spellbinders oval using DP from K&Co, and outlined with the Krylon pen.
The rectangular layer is cut with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight and shaded with the same Brilliance ink. The inside was cut with Labels Eight from the DP and also outlined with the Krylon pen.
All of these layers were mounted dimensionally on top of a DP background which was also outlined with the Krylon pen.
The card was made from Core'dinations Pearl CS, and the die cuts were cut from the same paper.
The card was decorated with roses and rose buds from my stash, pink half pearls, and foliage from the MS branch punch.
