JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop 9
Welcome to the 9th week of JustRite Stampers’ Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops! 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! Don’t forget that JustRite has some Christmas stamps in their newly released CLING line of stamp sets, too -- you can find them HERE. This week, the designers joining the JustRite design team is the Just Us Girls (JUGS) challenge blog design team!
For the month of November, we thought we would switch gears a little and throw in some holiday gift ideas using your JustRite stamps, so be watching for those, too, on November’s hops! And in celebration of JustRite’s 9th and 10th weeks of Christmas Blog Hops, they have a huge surprise for you -- take 25% off All JustRite Original Christmas Stamps now through November 15th, with free shipping within the U.S. . Don't forget to tell Santa!!
I started this card with some Early Espresso (thanks to Edna) and layered with Very Vanilla and then added two pieces of Echo Park Merry Christmas DP. Across the join I've added some burgundy mesh (thanks Edna! :) ) and topped with some twine. The snowman is from JustRite's Old Fashioned Christmas stamp set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (YG93, YG95, R02, R22, YR16, YR18, C1, 0). I cut him out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with more espresso and vanilla cut with the Big Scallop Circle Nestabilities and popped it up on foam tape. I then went hunting through my button stash and found the wood like rustic buttons and added a little more twine to give it that vintage feel. To finish I stamped the "Fa La La" sentiment from the new Sparky and Friends Cling stamp set and cut it with Beaded Ovals Nestabilities and sponged a little ink on it.
