JustRite Christmas Blog Hop #1 Wednesday

Good morning everyone.  Today is an exciting day over at the JustRite Blog.  We are starting something new today.  Every Wednesday for the next 12 weeks, there will be a Christmas Blog hop featuring some of the most amazing designers in blogland. 

"To kick off the 12-weeks of Christmas Blog Hop Wednesdays, JustRite is offering a free shipping coupon code for September 8-10. Please enter this code into the promotional code box at checkout: CBHOP1. The offer will expire at midnight PST September 10th and is only good for orders shipped within the United States and its US Territories."


You are not going to want to miss any of the next 12 weeks.  You are going to be blown away with inspiration.  And now you have no excuses not to get started on your Christmas cards.  The designers will be using new JustRite Christmas stamps as well as some of the Christmas stamps from 2009.

Today I am using a sentiment from the Christmas Nested Sentiments set as well as a border from the Christmas Nested Frames set.  The sentiment is stamped with Memento Danube Blue (available at JustRite Stampers), edged with chalk and diecut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4. 

The Christmas Nested Frame is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic markers (available at JustRite Stampers) and handcut.  Each layer is handcut except the bottom layer which is diecut with Spellbinders Curved Rectangles. 


The top white portion is embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder and then chalked.  The snowflake in the bottom right side was created with the Spellbinders Create A Flake 2.

Below are photos of both stamp sets that I used to create my card.




Below is the list of JustRite designers that you can "hop" to today.  Brace yourself  for some amazing creativity and don't forget to mark your calendars for the next 12 Wednesdays!!
