I've seen a number of examples of Justrite Stamps and Dies used on TV recently and been keen to try them out, they do some lovely designs. I added to my small collection when I went to the Summer Crafting show in Doncaster recently and this is the first card I've made using both stamps and matching dies.  The stamps I have are a mixture of rubber and the clear polymer variety and they are beautiful quality and stamp a very clear image. I believe the dies are made by Spellbinders so also good quality, worth the investment.

This is a card I made for my daughter's birthday on Monday.  I've used purple and cream cardstock, the background is embossed with a Stamposaurus Stencil through the Grand Caliber and some purple ribbon and beading have been used around the bottom.  I made the flowers on the ribbon  from Craftwork Card Candi coloured with Dusty Concord Distress ink and glued together to form, what I hope looks like, a violet flowerhead. I've added a small yellow gem to the centre of each flower.  The flowers and leaves around the mainimage are made using a Dreamees Stamp set (also a recent purchase) and some more Dusty Concord ink. The main image is the Violette Vintage Labels Justrite Stamp  coloured with both distress markers and promarkers. I hope you like the finished card and any comments you make will be very welcome
