Hello! Welcome to Day 1 of 9 of JustRite Stampers July stamp previews! If you were with us during the June previews, you might remember that we started introducing some new Christmas sets to get you going on your holiday cards and projects. This month, we have more Christmas sets for you and today we are introducing a new Christmas cling set.. CL-02180 Christmas Trimmings - Cling.

When I first saw the Christmas swag, I thought of scallops, so I pulled out various scallop dies and was thrilled to see that it fit Spellbinders S4-241 Jumbo Scalloped Border Petites. I die cut my scallop first, then I stamped the upper and the lower scallop to create my scallop-y swag. I then colored it with Copic markers and added pearls on top of the berries. The ribbons are also part of the set.. I stamped, colored and cut them out then popped them on top with some foam tape. I wanted to keep my layout fairly simple so I wouldn't detract from the swag, so I added a strip of embossed cardstock to the top and tied off some baker's luster twine and a couple of jingle bells.

Here's a complete look at CL-02180 Christmas Trimmings - Cling:
