JustRite Release #2 Blog Hop

New stamps and lots of great designers — love doing these posts!!! The JustRite Team is soon ready to ship so many new and fun sets and I can’t wait to check out all the projects created with them. I used a new set called A Little Caffeine Set, and it’s fun, fun, fun!!! Today I did a gift card holder with a somewhat masculine feel, but a couple weeks back I used this same set tocreate a most definitely feminine card. LOVE that a set is so versatile! Here’s my gift card holder for today:


A simple, but tried and true, fold I’ve used often. Start with a 1/2 sheet (5.5 x 8.5), and score at 2 and 6. That givesyou a 2″ fold on the bottom to form your pocket and a 2.5″ top flap. Quick and simple, just what I like! I used Granola by Basic Grey for my DP — liked these colors for a guyish coffee gift card holder! And I used 3 stamps from A Little Caffeine Set. Check out the background stamping on the photo below:


Can you see how I’ve used the coffee bean stamp to do an overall background stamping on the top flap? I thought it looked really cool on the Granola DP sheet. To get my Jute String so perfectly, I attached a strip of red sticky tape across the card front, then wrapped my string around numerous times, ending with a little bow. The tape holds it perfectly, yet is totally hidden!!! My focal image is cut and matted with Circle Nesties and placed on top of the Label 3 Nesties by Spellbinders — I like the look!


Here’s a shot of the inside. You can see how I’ve cut another of the Labels 3 shape and adhered to the inside to cover up the prongs of the brads — really cleaned up the looks a lot!!! And I used a Velcro sticky dot for my closure — self-adhesive — works great! I know there are also little magnets for this purpose, I just don’t have any.


Here’s a quick look at all the fun images and sentiments in A Little Caffeine Set. And you can see I’ve used two images and one border sentiment. You’ll need the 2″ Wood Stamper for use with this set.


Here I wanted to show you how I’ve cut out my images. I do not like when ink collects on the edges of the rubber, and by cutting off the excess rubber we can easily avoid that issue all together!

Thank you so much for stopping in here today, now be sure you hop on over to all the other JustRite design blogs for some GREAT inspiration using these fun new sets.

    What a good idea, Valerie. I might do that next time I mail a gift.
