Mixing and Matching Stamps with JustRite and Blog Candy

Hello! Today is the last day of Stamper's Dream JustRite week. It is always fun playing around with these stamps and I am sure you will be getting a lot more glimpses of these sets in the coming weeks.

Today I have a simple card using the JustRite Friendship Borders & Centers Round. (This set is currently sold out at Stamper's Dream but should be back in stock soon!)
I wanted to show you how you can combine portions of the stamps in any of these sets to create a whole new look (making them even more versatile!)

I stamped just the tree two times, inking up the tree with markers so I could leave out the sentiment next to it. Then, I cut out and popped up the top part of the tree over the first image (which was cut out using a circle Spellbinders die).
I used half of the sentiment ring from the set "It takes a long time to grow an old friend." I thought this went so well with the tree (cause you know they take a LONG time to grow too!) I added a tiny heart into the tree as a finishing touch.

The "Friend" sentiment at the top is from a stamp in the set that has a pot and says "Friends"...I just inked up the part I wanted to use, stamped it and then punched it out.

I went with minimal for this design and chose to just add a few squares of designer paper by Kaiser Craft along the side.

Materials used: Stamps-Friendship Centers & Borders (JustRite); Olive, chocolate chip markers (SU!); cardstock-olive, vanilla, red (SU!); ribbon (SU!); designer paper-Kaiser Craft; oval punch (SU!); Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle nestabilities; Wizard (Spellbinders); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories).

Hope you like it!

Cammie your card is so cute. What a fun set. Thanks for a chance.

Michelle said...

Cammie,

I think my fave set is the Baking set.. As we give out TONS (almost 2400 last year) of cookies at Christmas time this set is HANDY!!! I love your card BTW.. That sentiment is one of my favorites. It does take a long time to grow a good friend..

Gabriela said...

I think that all the Just Rite sets are, well, just right! My favorite du jour is Thinking of You. (love your card, BTW).

Megan said...

Sweet! This new JRS release has been really cool. I like the new goodies and the sayings in circles!! Thanks!

Chrisd said...

Great sentiment on your card. My favorite set is Thinking of you but the baking set would come in handy for baked gifts...especially at Christmastime. Hugs from Michigan

ubeestampin said...

I just love your creations. You do such an awesome job. I love JustRite stamps, I think mine is Big Occasions, because that's the only set I have right now. But I use it all the time, I just love it. My other 2 favorites are Girl Time Borders and Friendship Borders. Hoping to get those soon. Thanks for the ideas. Have a wonderful day!

Janet said...

This is a real cute set, and I love your card. My fav is a toss up between the preserves set and this one.

My favourite set that I actually own is Big Occasions, but I have been drooling over Favorite Occasions and Girl Time since they came out. There are a ton of new sets in the newest releases that look like they need a home in my craft room!
