Caardvarks :: JustRite Stampers






Hello Everyone! I'm very happy that it's the weekend! Today, starts a new Caardvarks challenge. This challenge is sponsored by JustRite Stampers. This is one huge contest! The winner will be a guest designer for JustRite and some goodies! That's such a great prize! So, all you have to do is create a stamped card with lace. For all of the details, please visit Caardvarks.

Have you ever stamped with JustRite's stamps? If not, you should try them. They require using their stamp mounts, so don't forget to add those to your cart as well. As a design tip, you are not limited to the circles shapes the stamps are designed. I tried to showcase that in the last card. You can stamp the images on another shape and not use the borders. You can also simply stamp the sentiment without the images. On the last card, I did not ink the spool to create a sentiment-only stamped image. So, I just wanted you to know JustRite stamps are more versatile than they may initially appear, you just have to be creative! However, the circles are always a great design element to incorporate as well - as I did in two of the cards above!

I had fun with this color combination, so I used it on all three cards. It's really great to see how you can use the same colors, but come up with totally different designs. Try giving it a shot one day!

Here is a little bit about my cards!
