JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #2

On Wednesday, The Dream Team from Stamper's Dream is joining JustRite Stampers for their newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #2! Every Wednesday until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing the JustRite Christmas Collection of stamps! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card and project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

*******NOTE: Yep, I know it's Monday night--I have to post my card early because of a previous commitment. The rest of the team will be posting on Wednesday!********

For my card, I used Whimsical Christmas to make a holiday greeting card:

I inked the sentiment with two ink colors and then stamped. Instead of using it as a circular shape, I just cut it into a square after stamping.

Then, I stamped blue snowflakes over the sentiment to tie it into the design of the card:

I created a little flower from patterned paper and the Spellbinders blossom dies, die cutting several layers and then crumpling them up one by one. I used a bit of craft wire wound around a pencil for the leaves/stems.

Materials used: Stamps- Whimsical Christmas (JustRite Stampers); ruby red, olive markers (Stampin' Up!); soft sky ink (SU!); Designer paper- Chicken Noodle: Chicken Bouillon (Jillibean Soup); So Sophie: Simple Things, Nice Numbers (My Mind's Eye); Be Merry Frosty Flakes (My Mind's Eye); Cardstock stickers (borders) Jolly by Golly (Cosmo Cricket); green wire; adhesive gemstones (Mark Richards); Blossom Dies (Spellbinders); Cuttlebug; Brad (The Paper Studio); stapler.

Please visit these designers’ blogs ON WEDNESDAY to see what fabulous Christmas projects they have to share with you:
