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 Spellbinders design team. So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

Both of the cards that I have to share today feature 2 different Snow People from JustRite Groovy Snowmen. First up, is a cute Snowman image that I inked up with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then colored him using various Copic Markers (shown below). Once the image was colored, I used a S4-126 Classic Squares LG die template to cut/emboss the image then adhered on top of a decorative layer cut using a S4-295 Lacey Squares die template. I inked up a sentiment from Nature Nested Sentiments & Verse & stamped on a tag cut using S4-081 Tags Five die template. The combination of a Spellbinders™ Grand Nestabilities® LF-127 Grand Scalloped Squares die template & a LF-126 Grand Squares die template made a wonderful canvas to showcase this duo of JustRite  & Spellbinders goodness :)

Next up, is this darling Snowgirl from JustRite Groovy Snowmen. To create this card, I inked the Snowgirl image & colored with a variety of Copic Markers (shown below). Once colored, I used a S4-114 Standard Circles LG die template to cut/emboss the image & adhered her to a decorative layer cut using a S4-304 Eyelet Circles die template. Rather than creating a tag, I inked up the Happy Holidays sentiment from Christmas Nested Sentiments & Verse with Memento Tuxedo Black ink & stamped directly on the DP.

To color both of these darling images, I used various combinations of the  Copic Markers shown in the photo below.
