Dear Husband....

Good morning everyone.  Welcome to Day One of another great JustRite release.  Today's release stamp sets are called Anchors Away, Cozy Plaid Background, Vintage Travel Background.  For my card I used 2 of these sets - Anchors Away and Cozy Plaid Background.

To create my background paper I stamped the "Cozy Plaid" background stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black and then randomly colored it using Copic Markers.  I think this plaid background might just be my new favorite background stamp!!  This background stamp is perfect for the masculine cards that we all struggle to create (or at least I do!!) but I will be showing you on a future post that plaid is NOT just for men - I will also have a Mother's Day Card using the Cozy Plaid Background stamp.

All of the sentiments are included in the "Anchors Away" clear set.  This set is PERFECT for me since my husband is an avid boater/fisherman and anything else that has to do with water!  He grew up on a large lake so he was constantly on the water.  We currently don't live near the water so he is always saying he feels like a fish out of water.  I also call his boat "His First Wife".

The image in the center is colored with Copics and diecut with JustRite Custom Nested Medallion Dies,   the sentiment in the center is diecut with JustRite Custom Oval Nested Medallion Dies , the sentiment "husband" is diecut with Spellbinders Labels Trio, and the "Happy Father's Day" sentiment is diecut with the new JustRite Vintage Label and Banner dies being introduced tomorrow (I love this new die!)

Did you happen to notice the cool Bakers Twine on my card?  I have seen so many cards online using Bakers Twine but didn't know where to find any.  Well, I found some in Sharon Johnson's online store The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  Sharon has a TON of different ribbons, trims, lace, paper, embellishments, etc.  Her pricing is very good and the delivery is FAST!  Be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - you will not be disappointed!

Here is a look at the stamp sets that I used to create my card today

Here are the new Vintage Label and Banner dies - another MUST HAVE!

Be sure to check out the other JustRite designers also showing projects today using these new JustRite Stamps.

Thank you for the ideas you shared, Angela. I really love how you tied the baker's twine and how you used the plaid stamp!
