Shabby Chic

Hi All!
I recently discovered Justrite stamps after catching one of the programs featuring them on Create and Craft. The first set I bought was 'Kindness' which fits in with the Spellbinders Labels 20 dies and then last week I bought the Shabby Labels which fit in with Labels 4.

There is lots of inspiration over on the fabulous Justrite website and their challenge this month is a sketch which I decided to have a go at. As I don't yet have a background stamp, I made my own background using one of the flourishes from the Kindness set using Peeled Paint Distress ink and Gold Brilliance ink. I used the Shabby Label as my focal image and coloured it with my Promarkers before inking the edges through the Spellbinders die. I then made a panel in the centre - cut with a Martha Stewart Cherish punch-  and added ribbon and flower to finish.

Inside I created a similar layout, stamping an area for a sentiment or message and embellished it with another of the images from the Shabby Labels set.

I hope you like my card. Why not pop over to the Justrite Friday Challenge and join in!

Thanks for looking.
Best wishes

  1. Hi Karen!

    Fabulous card inside and out! Really like your homemade background. :)

  2. I love how you created you own designer paper! Very pretty! Thanks for joining us at JustRite Inspiration ;-)

  3. Sooo pretty and very creative!!! I totally remember when I had 1 tiny set and first started doing their challenges -- not near as nice as yours, I assure you!

  4. Be careful, the JustRite stamps and matching Spellbinders are like chocolates, you can't just have one !! Your card is so pretty, the background looks great !
