JustRite Christmas In July Blog HOP!

Good Morning Everyone!

Today the JustRite Design Team is creating a bit of Christmas in July with a little holly jolly hop to show all the new Justrite holiday stamp that are available and shipping right now!!! If you are new to Justrite stamps, you can read more about the unique and super cool company right here and here is a great link about some frequently asked questions that you can check out that answers all your questions about font size, die compatibility, etc.

I love all the Justrite products and you can check out this link to see ALL of the new Christmas 2010 stamps that are shipping right now. I am so excited to show you this super cute Christmas stamp set called: Holiday Cheer Borders and Centers (Set 1-3/16", comes with 10 borders and centers). I love this cute little petite size for a stamp set and decided to have fun with the holiday colors by going more pink and blue with the papers from the My Mind's Eye collection called Colorful Christmas:

I punched out the snowflake (stamped in two colors) and then popped it up on the border. I love the holly and the berry border and figured - hey it could be blue and pink, right? :)) The circles were then matted with the SU! Scallop punch and I added a little bit of bling to go pop out the snowflakes. The big scallops were punched out with a Martha Stewart punch and then sponged and blinged and of coursed liquid pearled :D Here is a closer view of the sentiment: "Let it Snow" as it becomes the border that goes around the snowflake:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: My Mind's Eye: Colorful Christmas, Pink cardstock from Prism
Ink: Memento: Bahama Blue and RoseBud
Accessories: SU! Circle punches and scallop punch, Martha Stewart large scallop punch, liquid pearl (Adirondack), corner chomper (1/4), satin ribbon from Taylored Expressions, bling from Want2Scrap and dimensionals.

If you have worked with JustRite stamps before you might be used to the wood mount stamper with grooves that make it easy to attach the border or the center. One new product that JustRite is introducing is the clear mounted stamper that allows you to see where you are stamping the image - this is such a cool product and makes it really easy to get accurate stamp placement - here is a picture of what they look like:

I think my favorite thing about the JustRite stamps is that there is so much flexibility and versatility with how they are used. The centers and borders can be mixed and matched, the border could also be something that you personalize through all the different fonts that they have (so you can create your own stamp) and one of the best parts is that they are all compatible with Spellbinders - so you never have to cut out circles or ovals etc. they sync in perfectly with the nestabiliies.
