Gingerbread Blessings

Need a little something for holiday gifts, one that is mindful on the budget, and oh...so ready to be personalized with your JustRite touch? That is exactly what this scented spice sachet packet accomplishes! I purchased this sachet at a small gift shop, I'm talking a card shop, loaded with ideas, and has a pharmacy too! Yes, it's one of those small hometown shops! I felt like I had found a goldmine! Of course, you can purchase this type of item at JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, Walmart, etc. This Gingerbread Spice sachet was only 99 cents! The packaging is darling, and such tasteful work from The Homespun Designs of Angela Anderson. And it looks like it cost far more than 99 cents! SCORE!
When I spied this sachet, I instantly remembered the JustRite gingerbread image from JustRite's Favorite Occasions Set. I cut my border sentiment into two pieces so I could add my own wording on the bottom half of my border. Using my 6pt small letters set (pictured above) I spelled out WARM GINGERBREAD BLESSINGS. It really completes the overall theme of this little gift! That's what I LOVE about JustRite products! I can spell out any name, sentiment, or wording I want. And utilizing a cut half border or using a JustRite DEMI PHRASE makes it even easier.
A closer look at my 1 5/8" round wooden stamper, all set to go! The small letter set is one of the first JustRite products I purchased and I have to tell you, it's still one of my favorites! Makes me feel like I'm setting up a mini printing press!
Using tan cardstock, I stamped my image with Adirondack Espresso ink, and used Copic markers (shown above) to color! After the Copic coloring was completed, I went in with my Inkssentials Opaque white pen on the arm and leg trim.
A closer peek at the Copic Coloring. If time allows, when I choose to gift this item, I can step it up a notch and add some gingerbread cookies, a gingerbread cookie cutter, or an ornament! Oh, the possibilities! JustRite is the Splitcoaststamper product focus today! Check it out, and this YouTube demo! The fantastic designers listed below reveal awesome creations using JustRite's Christmas and Demi Phrase products! You will be so inspired!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I know I have been away from my computer for a week, but have been working on some home settling issues, and some design projects! More on that later! Take good care and may your day be full of love and blessings!
