Today is the final day of the JustRite May Release. The Stamp Set released today is "Summer Words", I love this set, it has great sentiments for your summer special events. I decided to make a gift box that could be used for a girl's graduation, birthday or any other occasion.
Here is the new May Release stamp set "Summer Words":
I started out by making the flowers first. I stamped five different backgrounds on ivory card stock with Distress Inks in several brown tones. JustRite has great background stamps which allow you to create your own pattern paper!! These are the background stamps I used: "Fleuriste Newsprint Background Stamp", "Shabby Music Background Stamp", "Vintage Wallpaper Background Stamp", "Elegant Fronds Background Stamp", and the new just realeased "Heart Scroll Background Stamp".
To die cut the flowers and leaves I used the die sets "Rose Creations" and "Foliage" by Spellbinders.
I used different backgrounds for the flowers to achieve more texture and dimension. Shape the petals and then layer them with foam dots to make the flowers.
I die cut and embossed the box using "Square Petal Top box" die template by Spellbinders with kraft card stock. To see a complete tutorial on how to make this box go to this "Link".
For the sentiment I stamped Thinking of You from the set "Summer Words" on ivory card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. For the frame behind the sentiment I used "Friendship Blooms" and I die cut it with JustRite custom design die template "Nested Medallion Labels Dies". Assemble all the pieces together as pictured below and attach to a memo pin.
I hope I have inspired you to use JustRite background stamps to make your own pattern papers! Here is another picture of the final project:
