Encouragement with JustRite
A dear friend of mine is having a very rough time right now with her health. So I decided to make some encouraging magnets for her to put on her refrigerator. Not only will they remind her that God is there for her, but also that I'm praying for her.
JustRite has some wonderful new products. I LOVE this new Tiny Words and Centers set. It has quite a variety of sentiments. I just stamped the *Have Faith* sentiment on my favorite dp Bella Bella (My Mind's Eye), and framed it with the Blossom Nestabilities Shape (Spellbinders). I then layered that onto the Labels IV Nestabilities (Spellbinders), added some ivory satin ribbon (SU), some pearls (Kaisercraft), and a Mini Multicolored Rhinestone (ZVA) to the little square on the front.
Here are the magnets I included inside. If you'd like a closer view, just click on the photo.
Each magnet was cut with the Labels IV Nestabilities shape (Spellbinders), and was coated with Detail Clear ep (JudiKins). Two also have Mini Multicolored Rhinestones added. Here's a close up of one of the magnets. The stamped rose in the background is from the Basicgrey stamp set Porcelain Avery. The verses are all computer generated.
When I ran the magnet through the cuttlebug with the Labels IV diecut (Spellbinders), it didn't cut completely through. But it was easy to follow with a scissors.
Stamps - Tiny Words and Centers (JustRite)
Paper - BellaBella (My Mind's Eye), Island Mist Dark (Prismatics)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories - Cuttlebug, Labels IV and Blossom (Nestabilities), Pearls (Kaisercraft), Ivory Satin Ribbon (Stampin' UP!), Mini Multicolored Rhinestones (Zva), Dimensional Tape, Tin Box
Now for my second JustRite project for today. It's quite simple actually. Very easy to make.
The template is shown below. The Image is from one of the new JustRite sets called Girl Time Borders and Centers. I thought this *Shopping* sentiment was perfect for a gift card holder, and I wanted to make it a different shape other than a circle. So I used the Octagon Nestabilities shape instead. The pink paper, Artsy-licious, by Chatterbox has flocked swirls. Love the texture!! I stamped the image with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Simply Smooth cs (Prism), and colored the top of the shoes with my stardust Gellyroll pen (Sakura). I framed the sentiment with Mini Multicolored Rhinestones (Zva)...LOVE these little guys!! Michelle just started carrying them in her Stamper's Dream store, and they are so inexpensive!! 400 gems for $2.49. It doesn't get much better that!! *grin*
Now, my corners were made with the Provencial decorative scissors (Fiskars), and the corner Black Rhinestones are by Kaisercraft. I believe the ribbon is May Arts. I just had it in my stash.
Here's the inside of the Gift Card Holder:
Here's the template I made for the Gift Card base. I just scored at each measurement with my Scor-Pal.
