A Square Thank You



Happy Tuesday my friends!! I'm so sorry for the huge gap in postings, but I've been spending some quality time with my family. And now, since the holidays are over, I needed a few thank you's. I tend to lean towards my JustRite stamps for my thank yous, because there is such a variety of ways to frame them, and in a simple, yet elegant, shabby chic, or CAS way. I chose to go the elegant route this time because there were a few images I wanted to work with.

I especially love JR's newest Square Frame releases!! Talk about a variety of fun, gorgeous, and versatile designs. The 2" Square Decorative Frames have to be some of my all time favorites of all the JR images!! I stamped them onto 4 different Prismatic colors: Mystic Medium, Island Mist Light, Crabapple Dark, and Wizard Medium using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I then used the same ink, stamped the "Thank You" sentiment from the Just a Note 1 5/8" Borders and Centers set onto Neenah Natural White cs and popped it up with Dimensional Tape (Scotch).



FYI: Stamper's Dream is having a 10% off sale of all the JustRite stamps!! Including the newest releases! How cool is that!!?!? Click HERE to see all the sales and specials.

The Thin Striped bg was made with some ultra fun Background stamps from Impression Obsession. Stamper's Dream carries these fabulous Cover a Card 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" Cling images and the fantastic Mega Mount Rocker Block too. (She's out right now, but a shipment is on the way.) I tell ya, I love that mount!! I actually layed the bottom edge against the bottom of my paper and rolled it up onto my paper. By doing that I had no problems stamping the stripes perfectly straight!! AWESOME!!

BTW...the card measures 4" x 4 ", the border punch along the bottom is Martha Stewart, and the ribbon is American Crafts and PTI. I also added a hint of bling with some Icons Rhinestones by Me & My Big Ideas.

That about explains it!
I hope you have a fantastic week. Stop by in a couple of days, I'll have another card to share with you on Thursday.

Happy Stamping my friends!!

This is simply beautiful. I'm looking to use some of the new Just Rite for my sister's wedding invites.

Hope you enjoyed your time with family and had a very blessed Christmas!
