JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #2

Hi everyone,

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature: 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #2! 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 the Stamper’s Dream design team! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

There are so many lovely stamps that JustRite carries that its super fun to mix and match - so I decided to use a combination of stamps to create this Christmas card. I used the sentiment from the Nature Nested Sentiments & Verse and inserted it into the Baroque Nested Frames. I LOVE the clear block acrylic stamper that makes it super easy to mix it up! I paired it with the lovely cardinal from the BackYard Birds 3 1/4" stamp set.

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Bo Bunny
Stamps: All from JustRite stamps: sentiment from: Nature Nested Sentiments & Verse, and then matched with the Baroque Nested Frames, cardinal is from the BackYard Birds 3 1/4" stamp set.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ladybug Red
Accessories: Spellbinders, Adirondacks Lettuce, Red Pepper dimensional pearls, ribbon from stash, glue dots, copics, sponge dauber, scalloped die cut from MFT and dimensional foam.

I adore the sweet birds in the BackYard Birds stamp set and love that it is versatile to be mixed with a Christmas sentiment - love that versatility!!! The little berries were made by rolling some red DP and the holly was freehand cut and dotted with my fave liquid pearls :) Please visit these designers' blogs to see what fabulous Christmas projects they have for you on the hop today:
