JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #5

Good morning everyone and welcome to Week #5 of the JustRite 12 Weeks Of Christmas Blog Hops.  We are not even 1/2 way through and my head is spinning with lots of great Christmas ideas.  This week is going to be more of the same amazing creations.

Here are the details:

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #5! 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! This week, it’s the Stamp Simply design team! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

My card today uses the Vintage Santa from the "Vintage Christmas" set.  He is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, diecut with Spellbinders Octagons, colored with Copic Markers, and  Polar White Flower Soft added to his hat brim and pom pom.  The sentiment border was stamped with Memento Danube Blue, diecut with Spellbinders Classic Inverted Scallop Circles, colored with Copics. I also added some yellow Stickles around the edges.

 This card is the perfect example of how well the Spellbinders dies match up with the JustRite Stamps.  The dies make terrific mat layers for cards.  My philosophy is "more layers = better cards!!"

Below is a look at the entire Vintage Christmas stamp set. 

Below is the list of designers that are taking part in today's blog hop.  Be sure to check them all out and be ready to be inspired!!!
