A Friendly Reminder! 52

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, July 13, 2010 @ 10:20 PM | , , ,

Hi There! I would first like to remind all of you in case you were not aware that The Spellbinders Paper Arts Blog Frenzy Contest is currently in full swing as of July 13th! There are MANY prizes that will be given away so please be sure to visit the Spellbinders Blog (click HERE) for complete details. Good Luck!!!!

I am almost over feeling jet lagged & my sleep is nearly normal again. sigh... I had some time to play yesterday after work :) I love to sit with all those goodies spread out before me & create - I find it so relaxing - don't you??? This week, Spellbinders is sponsoring the weekly Friday challenge over at the JustRite Blog! The challenge is to ink up your JustRite Stamps & create a shaped note card under 4" - ooops! I guess I was just so excited to play, I realized as I am typing this post I stepped out of the boundaries :( My card is 4" x 6" - maybe I am not over the jet lag quite yet! The good news is, I have the day off from work today so I can rest :) Here is my oversized shaped card:

For sketch inspiration, I played along with Laura's awesome sketch over at 2Sketches4You which by the way is offering a guaranteed DT position to The Card Of The Week Winner!!! So ladies, if you are interested - be sure to visit 2Sketches4You for all the details! Once I had the images stamped & cut, I inked the edges & layered them on top of a scallop cut from a Big Scalloped Circles LG die template.

Up close you can see how nicely the various Spellbinders™ Standard Circles SM & LG die templates line up with the images from the JustRite Kaleidoscope Borders & Centers 2 3/8" Round set. Once I had the images stamped & cut, I inked the edges & layered them on top of a scallop cut from a Big Scalloped Circles LG die template popping a pearl right in the center!

I love the creating my own embellishments of sorts so the Spellbinders™ Timeless Heritage set is one of my faves! The embossed heart in the pic below is just one of the many items that you can create using this set.

Thanks so much for stopping by & please be sure to let me know if any of you win playing along in the The Spellbinders Paper Arts Blog Frenzy Contest! REMEMBER: You MUST play to win :) Be Sweet!

Supplies:

Stamps: JustRite Stampers Kaleidoscope Borders & Centers 2 3/8" Round
