JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #3

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #3! 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! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!For today's Blog Hop I created a Christmas card using JB-09780 Hearts Come Home stamp set from JustRite Stampers. The JB-09780 Hearts Come Home stamp set includes 6 Designer Centers and 6 Interchangeable Borders and fits the JB-09508 Clear 2'' Square Stamper. I started by stamping the center image two times on to white cardstock using Tuxedo Black ink.For the first image I colored the poinsettia with Copic Markers and then hand cut the image. On the second image I colored the pine, holly, berries and outer edges of the poinsettia with Copic markers. I only colored the outer edges of the poinsettia because I wanted to layer the first poinsettia that I cut out on top. Next I stamped the Border with a Merry Christmas sentiment on to raspberry cardstock using Gold Pigment Ink and then I added gold embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.I used the Grand Calibur™ from Spellbinders™ and S4-128 Classic Squares Small die #3 to cut/emboss the center image. Then I used S4-295 Lacey Squares die #3 to make the square diecut. I inked the edges of the mat and two diecuts with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Next I used a paint brush and Gem-Tac glue from Beacon Adhesives to add glue to the edges and then coated then with clear chunky glitter.Here is a close-up. I also used S4-301 Labels Sixteen die #3 to create the fancy raspberry colored diecut. I layered all of the piece and used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to add a little dimension. I also added some pink rhinestones.On the raspberry colored mat I used the Flourish Impressabilites™ from Spellbinders™ and then lightly rubbed a gold ink pad over the embossed areas.I also added a bow and poinsettia with rhinestones. I added stickles to the poinsettia and holly for a little sparkle.Supplies
