JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop Week #3 55

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 22, 2010 @ 7:00 AM | , ,




Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #3! 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! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

To create the card shown above, I inked up the Santa image from Vintage Christmas Set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then colored it using various Copic markers (see photo below). Using a S4-301 Labels Sixteen die template I cut/embossed the image & frame behind. The lil' tag was stamped with the I Believe image from the Christmas Nested Sentiments set which stamped perfectly on a lil' tag cut using the S5-081 Tags Five die template.

With the left over scraps, I made a tag using a LF-190 Grand Labels Four die template. You may recall seeing a previous tag I made featuring the FREE downloadable calendar image courtesy of Sharon Harnist! She also generously offers many other FREE popular images - be sure to visit her blog (click HERE). Sharon designed the calender to fit perfectly inside of a S4-161 Labels One die template & using the Calendar Borders & Centers set, you can easily create lil' calendars for tags, scrapbook layouts, gifts, etc...

Please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous Christmas projects they have for you on the hop today!
