Getting Creative at The Shabby Tea Room!

Hi there! Wanna know how we're Getting Creative over at The Shabby Tea Room? Well, this week's challenge is to "Get Creative" and don't use any patterned paper or pre-manufactured embellishments! This means you can stamp your own patterned paper and use your dies and basic supplies to make your own embellies! Our very special sponsor this week is JustRite Stampers! JustRite Stampers will be providing our lucky winner a scrumptious prize package containing the Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit and the Fancy Tags Set Cling ... a prize package valued at approximately $53!!!

I have used the JustRite cling set called You Inspire Me and I love all the different decorative borders and sentiments in this set! I used the small decorative oval shape and stamped it three times in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink. Then I colored the ring around the oval with my light purple Copic and colored the center with the Eggshell Copic marker. I cut out a small oval with a Spellbinders die, colored it in with Eggshell, stamped it with my sentiment then inked the edges and popped it up in the center of the middle oval stamped on the bottom. I cut out my three layers of this shaped card with the Spellbinders Labels Eight dies and inked all the edges. The center is inked with Ranger Distress Tea Dye and Memento plum inks.

The bottom layer is stamped with the larger decorative shape from the stamp set so it peeks out on each side. I added three rolled flowers dotted with pearls and a few flourishes cut with a Sizzix die. A great big sheer bow was added with a little heart peeking out!
