Justwordz DT Friday (Oct. 21)

Hi Crafters,
This is the last week for the current Justwordz DT and I just want to say a big thank you to Kim and all my fellow members for making this DT so much fun! Ladies it has been a blast to see how each and every one of you use the Justwordz Everyday Sentiments stamp set each week. When I first got them I stared at them for a whole night coming up with possible sentiments. Now after seeing your creations I realize just how many sentiments they can really make and even then I am sure we have only scratched the surface. Thanks for all the amazing ideas ladies!

This week for my Justwordz  project I made a card for my father in-law. I learned this inking technique at my local scrapbooking store a while ago and wanted to give it another shot. It was only after I finished the card that Brian (my fiance) pointed out the original card I made using this technique was given to my father in-law already!  Guess I better not give him this one too since it is very similar lol. Might need to re-stamp another sentiment since I only have one father in-law haha.

A2 size card
Cardstock: Recollections
Pattern paper: My Mind's Eye
Digital Stamp: This was a freebie from
Sentiment: Justwordz Everyday Sentiments Set
Ribbon: Offray
Brad: stash

Here is the original card I created at my LSS

Remember Kim has just released two new stamp sets! A party invite set and a Christmas set! In the very near future her new DT will be announced and you will be able to see these stamp sets in action. Although, if I were you I would head on over to her site and check them out now as the Christmas set is going to fly off the shelf I am sure!!!
Also, don't forget to head over to the Justwordz blog and check out the rest of the DT creations made with the Everyday Sentiments stamp set!
I am entering this card into the following challenges: - Challenge #35 - male + metal  - 'taking to the skies' - Things that fly - Something that flies

I am also linking up at

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and happy crafting!

This is a beautiful card, Tara. I'll have to search your blog to read about this technique you used. It gives a different and interesting look to the image. I have thoroughly enjoyed our time together on Kim's team and I hope we can stay in touch going forward. Take care and good luck in whatever you do.

I think you can still use it. It's not the same at all! I really like it, and I was looking to see who made the stamp. So.... yes, I will need to know where to get it when you find it:-) It's been a pleasure being on Kim's DT with you. I'm sure I'll be "seeing" you around the net:-)
