Celebrate 2009 - Blog Candy

Happy 2009! I hope you have a Happy, Prosperous and Creative New Year!

To create my card I used the Createx Creations for my Background, substituting Createx with my Adirondack Paint Daubers - in Red Pepper and Gold. I used my JustRite Times New Roman Font (50 pt.) and my Harmony Rectangular Stamper Set for my sentiment - staggering the letters on my block then gold embossing them on my black card stock. To create the medallion, I placed my "2009" from my Times New Roman Font onto my JustRite Luxe Stamper, used my Small Letters to create Happy New Year, stamped on my Gold card stock in black, then clear embossed. I layered this onto my Black and Gold Scallop piece then onto my base card.


What better way to start off 2009 - than with some Blog Candy!

I'm fascinated with all the possibilities of the Just Right Stamp products and systems. I've been watching them for awhile and would love to play with them when the time is right(mean old budget!).

The damask & harmony titles alone had me scrambling to look at the sets. And your ab/fab card background boggles my mind. I would love to float a scripture verse on some of my handmade paper right on top!

With the technique you used would it work to run the background piece through a narrow strip shreader (horrors I know)and then weave them back together in a modified basket weave design?

Is this background awesome, or what?!? Wow! It's a stunner!

Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy, too! You're SWEET!!! I'd love to experiment with the Just Rite stamps!!!

Best in 2009...
