Kathy Jones Day 4 - Thinking of You



Welcome to the fourth day of my Guest Blog week!! How time is flying and I hope you’ve been having as much fun as I have this week! Today I’ve decided to make a card using the brand new, just released Thinking of You Set. I love making cards and it’s probably what I enjoy most. This would be one of the most beautiful, elegant stamp sets I’ve seen and perfect for Thinking of You and Sympathy cards. This set is available now from JustRite Stampers and is used with the Large Oval Stamper.

I started this card with Very Vanilla base and layered with Not Quite Navy (pierced the edge with a piercer and Mat Pack) and added another layer of Very Vanilla. Next I took a piece of Not Quite Navy and punched the top and bottom edges with the Fleur de Lis punch from EK Success. Through the middle I’ve placed some Bella Bleu DSP – some of my favourite paper – and placed a piece of ivory satin ribbon through the middle.

I stamped the border and centre from Thinking of You in Not Quite Navy and Chocolate Chip (for the flowers only) twice and cut them out with my Large Classic Ovals. (The Small Classic Ovals would be better – but I’m still waiting on my order to arrive.) I’ve used the Scalloped Ovals to cut the Not Quite Navy scalloped layer and placed the border on it and then popped the whole panel up on foam tape. The middle I’ve coloured with Old Olive and a blender pen and a white gel pen for the flowers and then used thinner foam tape to pop this up in the middle. To finish I’ve added some Blush Kaisercraft pearls and the cut outs from the punching to the corners.

Hope you’ll pop back tomorrow for the next project my final day here at JustRite!
Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".
