Last post as a JustRite DT member - Sea Shell Bay

Hi Everyone,

Today is the last day of the JustRite CHA sneak peeks and the team is showing samples from the absolutely gorgeous stamp set: Sea Shell Bay which coordinates perfectly with Labels Twenty-Two from Spellbinders. 

This is also my last post as a JustRite full time DT member - it was a very hard decision to make - I really do not want to leave, but life has been feeling very full lately. I have enjoyed every minute of being on the team for the last year and feel so fortunate to have met Kellie, Angela, Sharon and Eva who are on the team and I hope one day to meet all the rest of these amazing women - I admire this amazing design team - each person is so supportive, so kind and encouraging and absolutely talented! But, I won't be away forever :) Kellie has  kindly let me do some guest designer spots - so I am happy that I get to work with the team with these gorgeous stamps.

Speaking of stamps and today's Sea Shell Bay stamp set, I created a little set and tried to keep it to the beachy colors - simple white and kraft with some earth elements with the hemp twine that I braided to thread through the eyelets. 

Here is a closer peek at the card, it is matted onto the Labels twenty-two die and then I braided hemp twin through the eyelets and created a little round circle of hemp on the bottom (kept together with some glue dots). used this gorgeous seahorse for the main image on the card - love that it doesn't require much coloring - just different ink colors:

Here is a closer picture of the jar and the sentiment: I filled a little container with some seashells and used the lovely sentiment: "The Sea once it casts its spell, holds one in in its net of Wonder forever" ... so sweet! 

I love how this looks on our shelf - simple and sweet and slightly makes me yearn for some summer sun and walks on the beach :) (although it feels a bit like spring on these warm days of January!)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Kraft and white cardstock (PTI)
Stamps: Sea Shell Bay from JustRite stamps
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa, Cantaloupe and Bamboo Leaves
Accessories: container, ribbon from stash, bling, liquid pearls, Labels Twenty-two, hemp twine, wave punch, jumbo eyelets and dimensionals

A huge big hug to all of these amazing women on this DT, I am so sad not be a full time design team member, but so happy I still get to play and guest design with you. Huge hugs and love to dearest Kellie - I honestly don't know how she does it all - she simply amazes me!!!  Please check out all of these beautiful creations from all of these amazing ladies!
