JustRite Christmas Blog Hop Wednesday, Week 1

Welcome to the first JustRite Christmas Blog Hop Wednesdays! Every Wednesday for the next 12 weeks, there will be a hop (starting at the JR Inspiration blog) to inspire you to get a head start on your holiday cards and projects!


To kick off the 12 week Christmas Blog Hop Wednesday, JustRite is offering a free shipping coupon code -- for September 8th, 9th,10th -- please enter this code into the promotional code box at checkout -- CBHOP1. The offer will expire at midnight PST and is only good for orders shipped within the United States and its US Territories.


For my card today, I used a couple of JustRite stamp sets, one released last year (I believe) and one released just this summer.. I used JB-08760 Christmas Treasures for my main image and paired it with "Season's Greetings", which is part of the newly released set of beautiful sentiments, JB-09255 Christmas Nested Sentiments.

I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers. I cut my image out with Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities and lightly sponged around the image while it was still in the die. Finally, I added some Flower Soft (for snow) on the edges of the bird house roof and popped the circle onto an accordion flower medallion. To make the medallion, I cut a sheet of patterned paper 1.5" x 12", scored every 1/4", folded like an accordion and brought the edges together to form a circular flower. Detail shot:

Thanks so much for stopping by today -- I hope you'll also visit these JustRite designers for more Christmas Blog Hop Wednesday inspiration!
