JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #5

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #5!   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 Stamp Simply design team!  So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

I used JB-08780 Merry Little Christmas 1 5/8" & 2" for my very white card today. My layout inspiration started with Mojo Monday Sketch #159. I started off with a white cardstock base, added a white dry embossed (with a snowflake embossing folder) layer and topped that with some heat embossed snowflakes. I stamped the snowflake randomly and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I added a silver pearl from Pizzazz Aplenty in the center of each snowflake. For my sentiment, I stamped "Merry Christmas to You" in Memento Tuxedo Black, cut out with a Spellbinders standard circle die and attached it to a Heidi Swapp acetate snowflake. All layers are popped up with foam tape.

Here's a detail shot:
