Justrite Stampers Challenge!

Good Morning!  It's no secret that I love Justrite Stamps! And yet again, Justrite Stampers Friday Challenge has sparked my creativity!

This week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES with Justrite Stamps!  They want us to use our favorite JR stamps and tell why they are our favorites. Well, I've been wanting to experiment with Justrite Stamps and some home decor,,,,,,,,and the anything goes challenge is a great time to experiment with something a bit different.

To be honest, it's not often I make something for MYSELF. I usually give it away LOL. This time, I was determined to do so!  I wanted a wall hanging,,,,,,,,,,something springy, happy, pretty and PINK.

Here's what I came up with!
The stamp set I used for this project is Justrite's Cast All Your Cares clear stamp set. It's one of my absolute favorites, because it's so versitile. There are both old and new testament verses for both my Jewish and Christian friends,,,,,,and it's appropriate to SO MANY situations.  Psalm 29:11 is one of my favorites,,,,,,and so I decided to use this stamp for my wall hanging.

Here's a close up of this gorgeous JR stamp!
To make this pretty wall hanging, I first hand cut a heart out of card stock, which I traced onto white board.  I then cut out the white board and covered it with some pretty digi papers by Nitwit Collections and added a bit of pretty white lace to peep out.

I then hot glued some wired pink berries onto the edges of the white board and embellished with pearls, buttons, mini rolled roses in complimentary colors, and some spellbinders leaves made from gold mirror card stock.

For my focal point I layered Spellbinders Parisian Motifs in pretty pink paper which I had stamped with my sentiment,  and Fleur de Lis from gold card stock (the center I cut out with Squares Large).

I then embellished the focal point with some sticky pearls and a pretty Recollections button.

I then hot glued a ribbon to the back for hanging,,,,,,,,and embellished with a matching bow.

Simple, yet pretty and elegant!
