Extra Grand Sentiments Clear Stamps

Today I have some cheery cards to share with you.  So glad that you could join in the JustRite September Release Hop. Here are my cards for today.

For these cards I used the new Extra Grand Sentiments Clear Stamps, Extra Grand Sentiments SVG digital download cut files, and Garden Trellis Cling Background Stamp.


Have you been able to catch the Tutorial Tuesday videos from JustRite each week? Darsie Bruno and Heidi Blankenship have been so inspiring. I just had to experiment with some of my stamps.

Here are a few backgrounds that I tried with multicolor ink pads, Faber-Castel Gelatos and Big Brush markers, and embossing powders. It is amazing how one stamp could look so different!

Bottom Right--stamped and embossed in white with Faber-Castel Gelatos in the negative area & baby wipes (thanks Darsie!)
Bottom Left--stamped and embossed in white with Faber-Castel Big Brush Markers & baby wipes
Middle--stamped using a multi-color ink pad. I inked the right side all the way down, then flipped the pad and inked the left side. The image shown was the first stamping of my inking. I stamped it a second time and got a neat muted image. I'm saving that for another project.

Next I inked and stamped the sentiments. They are so much fun to stamp! I also used the matching SVG digital download cut files. Stamping on the SVG cut file was easy too. Because these stamps are clear you can easily align the stamped image to the cut file. 

I have to let you in on a secret! I can't stand to waste paper. So when I cut my SVG files I cut an entire page. You can imagine how many cuts I have for each of my stamp sets! 

I had 2 gallon size ziplock bags of cuts each in their little baggie. Last weekend I finally taped the smaller baggie to each stamp set. I can now have both items in one spot. Maybe I will make more cards too!




Thanks for stopping by. Hope you found a few bits of inspiration for today.

Please visit my friends on the JustRite Design Team. They have fabulous projects to share with you today!


The card was finished out with papers from The Paper Studio® Textured Cardstock Darks pad and Bright pad. The iridescent paper is one that I have had for a very long time I think it was through Crayola®. I added white ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon store with Sharon Johnson. I added bits of striped string and iridescent gems. The last thing I added was the feathers. I am addicted to them.

Happy Stamping!
Grace & Peace,
