Playing with JustRite
I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I've had a JustRite stamper sitting in my studio for months and months without even taking it out of the package! I finally used it to make a card with it a few weeks ago and decided it was high time for another one! It appears that I also need some more practice using this stamper as I could not, for the life of me, get the "N" to fully stamp...arrgghh. I'm sharing this card, with it's imperfect "N", in hopes that I'll soon be able to share why I kept having a problem with my stamping technique, how to fix it, and a new card with all perfect letters! I seem to remember seeing a post about this problem awhile back...now I just need to remember whose blog I saw that post on! :-) This card is sporting some of my new Basic Grey paper...isn't it just divine...and stamps from Stampin' Up! This stamp set is called Dream a Little...it's a hostess set that is only available to someone who hosts a party. (Sorry!) The card layout is loosely based on a Verve Stamps sketch, which you can see here. And as you'll see over the next few weeks, I have some kind of obsession with grey and orange! I am really digging this color combo lately...delightful! Enjoy and have a happy Tuesday!
