So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

Good morning! For this week's Christmas Blog Hop I created a Christmas card with non-traditional Christmas colors. I love the soft pretty colors of the pinks and orange. To create this card I used the NEW JustRite Cling CL-02030 Simple Blessings stamp set from JustRite Stampers. This stamp set includes 4 beautiful images to color and 5 sentiments.I stamped the image of the church with Rich Cocoa ink and added color with Copic Markers.Next I colored the stain glass windows and doors. After I had the image colored I hand cut the church out.I stamped the image of the church a second time and and added inks for a sunrise.Next I stamped two of the holly and berry images and then colored with Copics.Here is a close up of the church and the holly. I used S4-288 Classic Diamonds dies #1, #2, #6 to cut/emboss and layer the images. I also used S4-294 Beaded Ovals die #4 to create the oval diecut. I used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ for the layering.I stamped the sentiment using Rich Cocoa ink and cut/embossed the tag using S4-235 Fancy Tags. I added glitter and pearls for a little sparkle.
