JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream and a CCEE Challenge

It's JustRite week at Stamper's Dream again this week, and boy have the gals been cranking out some fantastic projects. In case you haven't seen them yet, or just want to check them out again, here's the schedule for the week:

Monday: Leslie, Cammie, Michelle
Tuesday: Denise, Amy, Cindy, Laurie, Michelle
Wednesday: Dawn, Cindy, Denise, Michelle
Thursday: Leslie, Laurie, Dawn, Me
Friday: Amy, Michelle, Me

eta: Sorry this is late, I had a problem with the postdating. Actually, I was the problem. I scheduled it for the 7th instead of today. YIKES!

For my first project today, I made a medallion with one of the circles from the Kaleidoscope set. The image and sentiment were stamped with Versamark onto vellum and embossed with Gold dp.

Here's a close up of the pendant:



I cut two Lotus Pendants (Spellbinders) out of vellum also and just layered them. I thought it made a great tag for this simple gift bag that I decorated with crocheted lace and Zva Creative Rhinestones at the top, and the Iron gate (Martha Stewart) border punch at the bottom. The dp is by g.c.d. studios, and the Satin Ribbon is May Arts.

Now, since it's Thursday, it's time for another CCEE Stamper's Challenge. This month Frances (StampOwl) is supplying the challenges for us. And since she's about to become a Grandma for the first time, this month will focus on mother's and babies. How fun is that!?!?!



Today, we were to make a Mother's Day card. My MIL is Dutch and loves Delft. So, when I saw the new Applique images by JustRite, I thought they would be great for making Delft tiles, which in turn would make a great Mother's Day card for her. I stamped the image with Mediterranean Blue Brilliance ink, diecut them with my Square Nestabilities (Spellbinders), and gave them a thin coating of Glossy Accents to give them a tile look. The frame was made with the Layered Arches punch set, and the butterfly was punched out of vellum with a Martha Stewart punch. The border was made with the Quilted Edge punch.

Here's a close up of the tile and butterfly:


I scored the stripes in the bg with my Scor-Pal, and the dots were made with the Swiss Dot Folder by Cuttlebug. Again, all the Rhinestones are Zva Creative.

Now, we'd love to have you join us in our CCEE Stamper's Challenge this week and make a Mother's Day card. Just link it with Mr. Linky at the bottom of today's post found HERE, on the CCEE Stamper's Blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
