JustRite Design Team Member

WOOHOO!!! Today is my official announcement that I have been asked to join the amazingly talented ladies as a member of the JustRite design team. I am sooooo excited. I have loved these stamps since I was first introduced to them. I never really called myself a "stamper" until I started using these stamps. They are so versatile and easy to use. These stamps have also made me come out of my comfort zone by learning to "color". The images are amazing to color.

For my project, I decided it was time to get ready for the next big holiday - St. Patrick's Day. At our house, the "leprechaun's" come out at night and leave green foot prints everywhere, change water & food to green, and leave gold coins. I thought this little leprechaun was so cute. I made him using my Cricut Expression along with the Paper Doll Dressup cartridge. He is cut at a size 8 1/2. I also decided to make a project to play along with the weekly challenge over at Just Buggin' which was to make a 3-Dimensional project. Check it out here and give it a try. I love 3-D projects!!

To make his little sign, I loaded my large rectangular wood stamper with my sentiment using the 50 point Curlz font, stamped onto white cardstock with Memento Bamboo Leaves, and diecut with Spellbinders Labels One and Classic Squares, added a skewer and adhered to his hand.

To make the pot o' gold, I cut the pot twice and made a little box to go between the 2 pots so that it would stand up. I stamped my center image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto white cardstock, a center from the Favorite Occasions Borders & Centers set & colored with Copics. Then I stamped the border (also from the Favorite Occasions set) onto gold cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black. Each were diecut using the Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities. My green mat was diecut using the Spellbinders Pinking Circles Nestabilities.

Isn't he cute!!! I had a lot of fun creating him.

Thanks for stopping in today for my big announcement. I am very excited to become a member of this design team. I hope you will check back daily for more great projects.

Have a great day!!!
