Sneak Peek for You

Hi bloggers!  I am simply crazy about this set of stamps and wanted to show it in black and white simplicity.  It is called Lace Medallion Labels by JustRite stamps.  I absolutely love the way they are incredibly detailed and yet so simple to use.  This card takes so little time but the results are outstanding in my humble opinion.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and stamped the border from the set four times across the card.  I used a black Archival ink pad for this.  I covered the piece with a sticky adhesive sheet, peeled the backing paper and covered it with clear micro beads.  Background sorted!  Next I stamped the medallion stamp on black card using a clear perfect medium pad.  I covered it with white embossing powder and heat embossed it.  I cut it out with the matching medallion die from Justrite stamps.  I stamped my sentiment in black on white card and cut it out with one of the smaller dies in the set.  I layered it up in the centre, that was the focal element sorted.  I used a piece of white tulle netting and wrapped it around the corners of the card and tied a bow in the bottom corner.  I added a smaller black bow tied from seam binding and topped it with a rolled felt flower (Spiral blossoms four).  The finishing touches included two stick pins and a pierced mat layer.  So quick, so easy and can't you just picture it in any colour you like!  Finished dimensions 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
On another quick note, I haven't heard from the winner of the "orphan" cards yet.  Since I think they truly need a loving home, I will draw another name and announce it with Sunday's comment game winners if I don't her from her by then.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue,
I am loving this stamp the detail as you say is incredible, and shows up so well in your photographs. Like you I love mocro beads they add such dimension to any designs you add them to. The tulle and ribbon bow with the felt flower really give this card a stylish and feminine look.
Looking forward to your shows on Sunday. Love BrendaLel

I can't believe it Sue, I have just bought a beautiful set of Joanna Sheen stamps that are nearly identical to these. I would never have thought of making a background like this!! I am really excited now and can't wait to use my stamps in this way. The tulle, black bow and flower really soften the card. I love it. Thank you so much for sharing. I'm off to craft, lol.
