Just Us Girls 50 and Cards....{JustRite Joy)


Hey friends!  It's time for another challenge with Just Us Girls!  This week we are challenging you to try Cracked Glass.  We are also honored to have JustRite stampers as our sponsor this week!  The DT is working with stamps from their Christmas category and wooooowheee!  are these great stamps!
Not only is a Chic of the Week winner's badge up for grabs but JustRite has provided an amazing prize package!  Wish I could enter, check it out....

2 JustRite Christmas Collection stamp sets of choice
2 JustRite coordinating stampers/mounts
5 Copic Sketch markers of choice, from JustRite’s offering
2 Memento full-sized ink pads of choice


I used the JustRite set called Christmas Ornament.  This set has gorgeous details on classic glass ornament shapes along with four coordinating circle borders.  Sooooo many opportunities to customize the look of the ornament stamps with copics, glimmers, paint, or, as I did here...paperpiecing and GLITTER! 
I chose to use the cracked glass technique on a piece of sheet music that I die cut with the Stampin Up Top note die.  Various brown inks were used over the cracked UTEE to give it an aged look.  This was a fun technique and a first time try for me!

I couldn't stop JustRite stamping there, I had to try out my new set of Christmas Nested Frames!
The nested frames scream "instant tag" to me, which I love, especially at holiday gift giving time.  Check out the JustRite challenge this week to create a holiday tag.  I took a que from the current Cards magazine blog challenge and popped my JustRite tag on top of a folded accordion flower. Add a string or ribbon through one of the holes in the punched border of the accordion flower and you'd have a darling hang tag for a gift bag or package. 

I thought the JustRite sentiment would go perfectly with this red paper heart doily so instead of hanging my bag tag, I adhered it on top of the doily!  Lovin' it!  I am quite giggly with the fact that I used a "valentine's" supply on a "Christmas" project!  ;)

Thanks so much for coming by!  Be sure and check out all of the challenge fun this week at the JUGs blog and you just might win some Fabulous JustRite product!  Be sure and check out all the JUGs girls blogs and leave em a little love and don't forget our amazing guest designer this month, Lynn Mangan!
