CPS #125 and JustRite stamps

The sponsor this week at Card Positioning Systems blog is JustRite stamps. They have been a sponsor before and it is always great news that we are going to work with them again. They just keep coming out with new stamps and they are all fun to use.
You can see more brand new papers that I just picked up, on this card. I am loving the shaped papers, look how perfectly a piece of this one worked to fit on the front of the card.
Here is a close-up of the stamp I used from the "Just a little caffeine" set. I love Starbucks and I always order a Grande size so could this one be any more perfect for me! Wouldn't it be a great stamp to use when you are going to give a friend a "coffee" gift card? I only stamped this one with brown ink and then did a little bit of coloring with Copic markers. I had punched out the stamped image with a circle punch but then I cut that edge with zig zag scissors and inked that cut edge.
I made a second card to fit the same sketch, using more of the JustRite stamps that I received to work with. This set of stamps are actually half circles of words and you can put these half circles together to form an entire circle of words or you can just use any of the half circles. These are from the "Celebrations Demi Phrase" set. I thought these were fun because you can also use the individual letters that come in the set and make it more personalized. Lots of possibilities with this one.
You can also see the Core'dinations cardstock accents on this card. The long edge of the card has lines put in it with a Scor-Pal tool and then it was sanded.
I wanted you to see the stamped words, a little closer and I also wanted you to see my little flower/circle accent.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Very beautiful cards. Love the coffee card. It would be great to use with a coffee gift card.

I've got a wedding this week-end, so I've got to pull myself away from the garden and get a card made.
