JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop 9!

Welcome to the 9th week of JustRite Stampers’ Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops! 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!

I was lucky enough to work with two JustRite stamp sets!  The first is a beautiful set of sentiments called Christmas Nested Sentiments & Verse.  I was able to make this sentiment the focal point only needing soft and subtle accents to complete my card.
A piece of sheet music, a handmade felt flower and a piece of evergreen from a Christmas craft pick have been assembled from my crafty stash and how about that pearl edged lace?  That came from a stash of lace I've been holding since my wedding in 1998...does that mean it's "vintage" ??  ;) I also painted and glittered a chipboard lable.

Next up, a holiday tag made with the Whimsical Christmas 2" circle stamp set.  This is a great set with a mix of whimsical and elegant images and borders.  I chose one of the beautiful filigree snowflakes for my tag.
  Again, I hit up my stash of Christmas picks and embellies.  What's not to love about a glittery snowball  plus jingle bells?  I added a bronze metallic to the mix using fabric paint to make dots between the snowflakes.
Searching through my vintage digi images, I found this adorable winter scene from the Clearly Vintage blog.  I thought the colors in this scene went well with the rustic brown stamped JustRite snowflakes.
There is a ton of inspiration waiting for you on this hop. Please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous JustRite Christmas inspiration they have for you on the hop today!

Leave it to you, Dana, to come up with two beautiful & unique creations! Your ability to so creatively use materials from all different mediums & sources to create something unique & special is wonderful, your signature, I think! :> Now, here's to hoping the Christmas season is just as peaceful & serene as your two creations this year! :>

You right about the sentiment standing alone with just a little bit of fluff! I love the softly distressed edges of the music paper alonge with your "vintage" lace! LOL The tag is fab love all the different mediums you used with it and the image rocks! I'd use this for a book mark it's so pretty!

Both of these projects are GORGEOUS beyond description, lil' Dane! SERIOUSLY! So elegant in your winter white, you are! Mmmmmmmm, I HEAR the music while I dream about a flawless Holiday season, dripping in white chocolate Mochas {calorie free, of course!}... What an exceptionally beautiful collection of paper craft! Only the BEST from the BEST!
