Thinking of You JustRite

As you've probably noticed with the last several posts, I've fallen in love with JustRite stamps that can be cut out with matching die sets.  Today I've got three examples to show you of cards made with a stamp from their Vintage Rose Medallions set.  The sentiment inside was from some other set I had in my stash.  To make this first card, I stamped the frame & sentiment in embossing ink on a white glimmer paper and then heat embossed it with fine black embossing powder.  After it cooled, I cut it out with the matching JustRite Medallion die. I cut and embossed a black mat using one of the Oval Medallion dies, and used a white gel pen to draw around the embossed line. 

The "Ribbon" is a strip of black paper that has been embossed with one of the inserts for the Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies.  A black and white striped paper matted on plain black gives the background for this card.  I want a white ribbon to finish it off, but don't know if I'll get one before this goes in the mail to someone.

This focal uses the same stamps as those in the first card, but I used white embossing powder and then went over all of it with some distress ink to create the look you see here before cutting it out with the matching JustRite die.  A ribbon runs across the background.  That floral turquoise paper is from my stash - not sure who made it.  The frame was cut and embossed using Spellbinder's Resplendent Rectangles dies, and the  white diamond mat for the sentiment was cut and embossed with their Marvelous Squares dies.

This last card has a focal made with the same stamp, but a different sentiment stamp - all stamped on red card and embossed with white embossing powder.  This time I took a square of white paper, cut out the center with the matching die, and turned it to form a diamond-shaped frame.  The frame this time is popped up off the red sentiment square using foam tape.  All is then matted on a piece of embossed white.  I think the roses paper is from HOTP, though I can't be sure.
