Justrite One Day Special continues today

Hi Bloggers.

The Justrite One Day Special continues on Hochanda today with shows at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

I made a card blank out of Coconut White Card, the same way as I made the one on yesterday's post, using the largest die in the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Die Set. I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using the largest rectangle and the next but one rectangle in the set and added thin strips of 3d Foam to the back of it.

I took another piece of Coconut White Card and scrunched it up. I opened it out and rubbed the Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink Pad over the surface, picking up the peaks in the distressed card. I then spritzed it with water, left it for a few moments for the ink to move around and then ironed it (this stops the ink moving and flattens it out). I put it aside to dry.

Once dry, I stamped the heart branches from the Justrite Create a Flower Garden Stamp Set in one corner using Jet Black Archival. I swiped some Abandoned Coral Distress Ink onto my Craft Sheet and picked it up with my Water Brush and used it to colour in the hearts.

In the top left hand corner, I used a really cool technique which is why I wanted to share this card with you today. So, this technique is fantastic with solid stamps - Lisa Horton's Silhouette stamps would be fab for this too. It does help that on the shows today, I have the fabulous Justrite Basketweave Background Stamp which is brilliant for this too. Anyway, back to the technique which I believe is called 'Kissing the Stamp' or something similar! So, I inked up the foliage stamp from the Justrite Multi-Step Flower Garden Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I stamped it into the Justrite Basketweave Background Stamp and then into the corner of my background. You get the pattern from the background on the solid design - cool, eh? I repeated this another 2 times (remember to stamp into a clean area of the background stamp each time).

I cut a couple sets of the leaves out of Black Card using the Justrite Flower Garden Dies. I covered them with Flake & Glitter Glue using the CS Flake & Glitter Glue Highlighter. This goes on blue (quite visible on Black Card), you need to wait till it goes clear before applying anything on top. Once clear, I sprinkled CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost over.

I popped my frame on top of my background and trimmed away the excess using scissors. I added a Craft Consortium Peach Resin Flower to each of my stamped corners.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Large Oval Celebration Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card. I cut it out using the smallest 2 oval dies in the Justrite Hope Oval Frames Die Set (the smallest oval die has no cutting edge, it just gives you a lovely pierced detail). Leaving the piercing die in place, I inked through it and around the edges with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink using a Smoothie. I cut the middle sized oval out of Black Card as a mat.

I found this video on YouTube by Justrite showing lots of different ways to cut the Hope Oval Frame Dies -
