JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop 8!

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops 8! 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! And don’t forget that JustRite has some Christmas stamps in their newly released CLING line of stamp sets -- you can find them HERE. This week, the designers joining the JustRite design team are the Flower Soft and The Shabby Tea Room challenge blog design teams! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

I used two JustRite sets on my card today...Christmas Ornament and Christmas Nested Sentiments and Verse. I decided to go for a vintage feel, so I started by heat embossing my ornament images in gold embossing powder, colored the branches and tops with Copics and cut them out by hand. Then I used Ranger Distress Inks and a sponge blender to color the images using a form of the emboss resist technique. Next, they were covered in transparent glitter embossing powder and heat embossed again. I didn't stop there...they were coated with extra thick clear embossing powder and heat embossed again...not once, but twice! These paper ornaments were transformed into thick, glossy, colorful glittery ornaments that were then popped up with pop dots and hung by some thin grosgrain ribbon colored with a brown Copic marker. You can see the shimmer and the thick glossy finish in this detail picture.

My sentiment is stamped right onto the dp with ColorBox Dark Brown ink and a simple green grosgrain ribbon and bow give this card it's classic look.

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