TECC39 Isaiah 9:6

October 24th, 2008

My apologies to Taylor and the rest of the Cupcake Crew for being late this morning with my sample for TECC39.  With all the SASI Release excitement last night I didn’t get my card made before birdie bedtime so I couldn’t work in my stamp room (for newer readers here who might not know  – I share my stamp room with 2 huge sleeping cages for our 2 macaws).  But here I am – better late than never.


I recently got some new JustRite Stamper toys including the Brayton font and the rectangular blocks and I’ve been dying to play with them.  The strips in this sketch seemed perfect for a Bible verse – I choose the first part of Isaiah 9:6 and paired it with the Christmas star from the new SASI set Home Sweet Home.  The burgundy cardstock is a Stardream Metallic so it’s super shimmery IRL.  I also used Shimmer White for the Cuttlebug embossed panel.  The navy is SU.  The stars were embossed with white ep and punched out with my SU small oval punch.  A Kaiser Craft rhinestone was added to each star.  The sentiment was also embossed with white craft ink and white ep.

One of the really cool things about these JR fonts is that you get 3 different sizes of letters so you have lots of options when building a sentiment. 

I’m not really sure if I like this card – it’s much bolder than my usual style and now that it’s all finished I feel like it’s a little too *patriotic* looking which is not at all what I was going for.  I guess I still like the concept, but I’d make different color choices if I were to do this again.

I hope you’ll play along with the TECC sketch this week – You could be chosen to be Taylor’s Featured Stamper next week if you do.  See Taylor’s sample today and get all the details to play along by clicking here.  This week’s Featured Stamper is Kathie Bailey at Just an Inkling.

Let’s check out what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great weekend!

    Gosh, it does look patriotic but I didn’t really think anything other than Christmas till you mentioned it. It’s a beautifully creative design, Jami, and a great way to use those big letters.

    Oh – how sweet! Love that you used the panels for sentiments! Love that verse. Waiting for my JustRite to arrive, as we speak. 🙂 Happy Day!
