JustRite Wednesday Christmas Blog HOP #4

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #4! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving various industry 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 Spellbinders design team! So mark your calendars, Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!
For my creation today, I wanted a card to go along with this plate & spreader I purchased. They came in sets of two, so I separated and now will have two gift packages to give! The moment I saw these items in the store, I knew immediately I needed to buy, so I could add the beautiful winter cardinal image from JustRite's BackYard Birds Set. Perfect, no? I tend to gift items that I can coordinate with my stamping and papercrafting ideas in hopes the recipient likes the idea as much as I do! This will just be our little secret!
Here is a look at the complete BackYard Birds Set! The images are terrific, and so much fun to color! I used my 3 1/4" round wooden stamper, stamping the border with Memento Cottage Ivy ink and the cardinal with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Here are the Copic Markers I utilized. I also lightly rubbed blue chalk with my dauber onto the background of the image along with Tim Holtz Distress Old Paper ink around the cardstock edges. There is also Polar White FlowerSoft adhered to the branch for the snow effect!
The card is cut out using Spellbinders Eyelet Circles #4 die, first scoring, then placing the die slightly below the fold to create a card. The inside actually is seen through the die cut circle on the card front. String is found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store
