JustRite Papercraft Friday Challenge - CAS

Here is my 2nd attempt of CAS for the JustRite® Papercraft Friday Challenge.  Since I am not a fan of a lot of open white, I am trying a different approach to CAS with black.  Tell me what you think!  I had fun creating this birthday card using "Cupcake Stand", "Large Fancy Sentiments", "Pattern Basics" and "Topsy Turvy Cakes" all by JustRite® Papercraft.  Decorative border made with "Classic Insert Three" by Spellbinders® Paperarts.


Project Recipe:
Paper: Black, Pink and White Bazzill
Ink: Marvy Black, Copic Markers

JustRite Papercraft Friday Challenge - CAS

Here is a clean and simple creation for the JustRite® Papercraft Friday Challenge - CAS.  I am typically not comfortable with this style, but I am trying to go outside of my box.  Having a lot of white open space is very difficult for me, so here is my attempt.  I used "Black-Eyed Susan Labels Five" and "Enjoy The Day Vintage Labels Four" by JustRite® Papercraft.


Project Recipe:
Paper: White and Green Bazzill, The Paper Studio Yellow/White Polka Dot 
Ink: Marvy Black, Copic Markers
Accessories: The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Yellow Seam Binding

JustRite Papercraft Friday Challenge - Spring Cheer

I am covered in too much snow.  We had a wicked snowstorm dumping 12 or more inches of snow on the state of MN.  It is definitely time to start thinking about the Spring!  So I created this card for the JustRite®Papercraft Friday Challenge - Spring Cheer thinking of nothing but daisies and the wonderful sound of buzzing bees and looking forward to my seasonal campsite!!  Come on Spring and Summer!

My background is made alternating and coloring the bee and small daisy from "Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five".  Next, I stamped and colored with Copic markers the large and small frames from the same stamp set.  Cut them out and layer them with pop dots.  Using one of the sentiments from the same set, I framed it with "Vintage Labels Three", both die and stamp set are from JustRite® Papercraft.  My finishing touches are yellow ribbon/bow from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, the bow was made with the Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker. And tiny white pearls and a golden yellow butterfly with pearls.
