JustRite Christmas Blog Hop Wednesday 1!!

Hello Everyone and welcome to the JustRite Christmas Hop!!  As you may know, over the last couple of months JustRite Stampers have released NINE new Christmas Sets and combined with last year's release, there are now 15 sets available in plenty of time for you to create those beautiful, handmade cards this Christmas!!  Mark your calenders - each Wednesday until 24 November, there will be a Hop using all these sets and more to inspire you!!!  To sweeten the deal for residents in the USA, there is FREE SHIPPING from September 8 - 10 (midnight PST), just enter the code CBHOP1 when you order!!!

Today I've decided to feature the new Christmas Ornaments and Christmas Nested Sentiments and Verse sets, using this week's Mojo Monday Sketch and as a bonus, it qualifies for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge to use a Tag and JustRite Stampers Challenge JRC_034 to use Glitter!!!  OK - it's only a tiny bit of sparkle.....but it is there!!  :)

I stamped this beautiful Christmas Ornament in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (G21, G24, G28, BG11, BG72, RV10, R85, E50, E51, Y21, Y35, 0) - all of which are available through the JustRite Store (US & Canada only).  I cut it out and popped it up in the middle of the matching border that has also been coloured with Copics and cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities.  I just love that these sets perfectly match all the Spellbinders Products!!!  *Happy Sigh*  I matted it with some Hazel Bazzill cut with the Label 9 Nestabilities.  The sentiment is from the new Christmas Nested Sentiments and Verse which I've stamped also in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out with the Ribbon Tags Trio die and trimmed to make it look like a Tag!  Once again --- YAY that the sentiments fit several of the different Spellbinders tag dies!!!!  :)
To add a bit of sparkle I added some Clear Spica to the snowflakes on the ornament, the holly berries and I also went over the sentiment with it --- it's just REALLY hard to photograph!!!

Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Hazel Bazzill, White, Kaisercraft Christmas Carnival DP

Kathy, thank you for your encouragement for my mum. I won't have too much opportunity to log in to my blog once I leave Sydney but I'll keep checking in once I'm back. Your Christmas card is beautiful and very unusual colouring but I love your "Walk With God" even more.
Blessings!
