JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #6
Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #6! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps! This week, it’s most of the Copic design team and Certification instructors! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog! Today I decided to go a little bit vintage using JustRite's new Vintage Christmas set! I've actually been enjoying making Christmas cards that aren't all red and green and was inspired by this totally yummy new paper by Echo Park's Merry Christmas collection called Happy Holidays.
I started with a base of Chocolate Chip and layered with Very Vanilla and two pieces of Echo Park Happy Holidays DP. The top panel I cut into three pieces and then across the join I've used some red taffeta ribbon from my stash (sadly this is the last of it - it's by Vandoros if anyone is lucky enough to find some more!). I stamped the Santa centre and border from Vintage Christmas in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press It Blending Card and coloured the Santa with Copics (R32, R35, R37, E000, E01, B21, C1, C3). It was cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and then sponged some Antique Linen ink around the Santa using the Jumbo Dauber. (If you haven't heard me say it before - I LOVE this Dauber!!!! Much, much better than the little ones!!!) Next I coloured the stars in Sand Spica (this was a nice toned down colour to match the colours of the paper!) and then added a touch of Clear Spica to Santa's glasses. I matted the image with Chocolate Chip cut with the matching Big Scallop Circle Nestabilities and popped it up on foam tape. To finish I added a red bow with the last of my ribbon and added a few Kaisercraft Chino Pearls to the corners.
