Lovin’ the New Look…

…of JustRite. Clean and simple, fresh and fun. IF you want it to be — and today, I did! This doesn’t get much more clean and simple, and it fit my mood perfectly today!


After making Tanya’s card the other day with this same image, I had a few of thesestamped and laying around my kitchen, so I colored this up quickly today while making dinner. I do find if I leave stamped images and my Copics in the kitchen, that I color much more frequently than if they are all in my stamp room — so in the kitchen they now reside — whatever works!


Paper is SU Textured Almost Amethyst. My image was colored, then cut out and mounted onto the circle with SU Dimensionals. And don’t ask me WHY I had to cut it out — just remember, I WAS making dinner at the same time — LOL!!! Take it from there!!! See the little white flower centers? Such a little thing, but adding them makes SUCH a difference. They were done with a Signo White Gel Pen. LOVE this image from the Friendship Set by JustRite.


My favorite bow treatment of recent, using Celery Silk Ribbon and the Bow Easy. You can read this post to see how I do this. The bow is glued on with Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue — REALLY lovin’ that stuff — it holds tight, the nozzle doesn’t plug, and it’s at Wal-Mart for very little money. You can see some glue on my bow. It will dry clear, I was just too impatient to wait.


My Stamp Simply Ribbon Store carries the following items to make this card:

Friendship Set used on a 3 1/4″ Round Wood Stamper, by JustRite.

Celery 100% Silk Ribbon by May Arts and the Bow Easy.

Petite Circle Nestabilities by Spellbinders.

Scor-It Score Board



As many of you know, I have been out of the Celery and Pink Silk Ribbon in 1.25″ width for a few weeks. May Arts has been out of these colorsfor a few months and their shipment FINALLY arrived — I am doing the happy dance, for sure! Mine will arrive on Friday of this week, so I can ship out on Saturday. Those of you on a Wait List or a Backorder List will be contacted. Anyone else, feel free to place your orders. I will process them and ship out as soon as it arrives (Saturday, 9/12 is my anticipated ship date). Thank You!!! I so appreciate all of your orders — you keep me hoppin’ and I LOVE it!!!

That’s it for tonight! Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend everyone! See you real soon!!!

    Your card is beautiful and your bows are to die for. You make it look so easy, but it really isn’t! You just have the knack.

    This is such a pretty card Sharon. I always drool all over your cards. They are always awesome. I have so much ribbon but every time I see your cards, I think I’m just going to have to order some of yours. Your ribbons (bows) are always so gorgeous.

  4. Just beautiful Sharon! LOVE that big celery bow! Great image and coloring! Great idea to keep the copics in the kitchen since we seem to live in the kitchen!!!

    love the card, the colors and the bow. Is the bow doubled or is that the actual size of the ribbon? I can’t tell from the photo. Since the bow is glued on do you tie something around the ribbon running down the card to bring it in there where you placed your bow? I know a lot of questions for a Sunday morning. I just really want to be able to make cards as pretty as yours.

  7. Only requires a one word comment … BEAUTIFUL!!!
    Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
