Personalize it for Christmas with JustRite Stampers

Hello! Before I get started with the blog post I just have to tell you I have some Fantastic news--I have the computer back!! I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am!! You just don't realize how much you depend on the computer until it's gone and then it about drives you crazy until you get it back--LOL!

Today JustRite Stampers is the Product Focus at Splitcoaststampers and the product review team has written reviews on the 2" Stamper with 15 point Font, Holiday Demi Phrases, and the Have A Merry Little Christmas Set. With these three items you can Custom design your own Personalized Christmas Cards. To read the Product Review click HERE. To see a written tutorial with great photos on how to use these products click HERE. Also JustRite is having a Mini Christmas Card Blog Hop (names and links are listed below) and I know the ladies have all created something that is sure to inspire you.

My project for today is on the simple side but I wanted to show you how quickly and easily you can personalize your gifts with JustRite Stampers and adding some pretty designer paper. Here is the card and gift I custom designed.To create the card and tin I used the 2" Stamper with 15 point Font, Holiday Demi Phrases, and the Have A Merry Little Christmas Set from JustRite Stampers. Starting with the card here is the custom design stamp that I made. The snowflake and the center border are from the Have A Merry Little Christmas Set. The sentiment on the top half is from the Holiday Demi Phrases. The letters to customize the stamp are from the 15 point Font set. I started out by inking the stamp with Rich Cocoa Ink but I wanted to have the snowflake image blue so here is a little trick that I do when I need to remove or add a color of ink and I am working in a small space. I take a q-tip and tightly wrap a baby wipe around one end. Then I used that to remove the ink from the stamp.Then taking the other end of the q-tip to add the ink to your image. You don't want to wipe the q-tip on the stamp, just tap up and down the same way you would if you were applying ink directly to a stamp with an ink pad.Here is the finished result.I used the Classic Circles Nestabilities Lg. S4-114 to diecut the circles. I also used the Classic Petite Scalloped Circles Nestabilities Lg. S4-115 to make a scalloped circle mat behind the image and sentiment.

Here is a picture of the finished card. The designer paper is from The Robin's Nest, Winter Retreat Snowflake and the brown and ivory cardstock is from The Paper Company. The edges of the ivory cardstock were inked with Vintage Photo and I added some chocolate brown sheer ribbon and some crystal ice glitter.Here is a picture of the tin before I altered it.Here is a picture of the stamp that I custom designed for the front of the tin. The letters in the center and on the bottom half are from the 15 point Font set. The center border is from the Have A Merry Little Christmas Set and the sentiment on the top is from the Holiday Demi Phrases . I covered the tin with the same designer paper I used for the card. The band around the center is the same paper but it's the pattern from the other side with snowflakes on it. I also added a dimensional snowflake on the lid of the tin. The snowflake was made using the Create a Flake Two S4-223 die template from Spellbinders.Here is another picture of the finished set. Supplies~
