JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop 7

Edited to include direct links.

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops 7!   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!  You also might see some projects from the JustRite design team, using some of their newly released line of CLING stamps!  You can find our new collection of cling stamps HERE.  This week, the designers joining us are most of the Spellbinders and Caardvarks design teams!  So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

Today's project uses stamps from the newly release JustRite Cling line. The image and sentiment are from CL-02025 Sparky and Friends. My first card was quite a bit more elaborate than this one, and my DH hated it, so he kept having me re-work it. Finally, it ended up in the trash and I started over. This is much simpler than most of my designs, but like he's always telling me.. some times less is more. Everytime I would try to include a scallop, he would say, "no scallops". Besides a strip of ribbon and some stitching, my only embellishments are the frosted red pearls along the left side.

I added some fine glitter along the hat and jacket trimmings and Flower Soft Polar White around for some snow. Here's a detail shot of the image (while I was coloring this, my DD, Sabrina, pointed out to me that this was a photo of "Mommy, Daddy and Sabrina"..), so this is apparently also our family photo!

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

Here's a look at the entire Sparky and Friends cling set:

And, finally, a look at the storage (these are 8.5" x 5.5" panels that fit inside mini binder boxes).

Thanks for hopping by!
