Charmed! Holiday Style!

Today JustRite is releasing Charming Christmas, a cling stamp set that coordinates with their Charmed Custom Spellbinders Dies. I have two small packaging ideas for you today! Here is a look at the entire JustRite Charming Christmas Set! I chose the two heart stamps for today's creation along with 2 sentiments. This set is a JustRite Cling set that features 12 stamps. Oh, how I love to coordinate stamping with custom dies and to add the Charming Christmas stamps for these dies is such a wonderful holiday treat!I re purposed a small white gift box and added a belly band that can be removed to allow the lid to be taken off. This box is perfect for a gift card, jewelry item, or a tiny trinket! The image is Copic colored with the little oval in the heart center trimmed out. This allows the sentiment to peek through the oval window. The berries were created using wired pearl trim. I cut them apart keeping a wire stem, Copic colored them to match my image, and added the glitter while the Copic marker color was still tacky. For the second package I took this small gem I picked up at my local dollar store around Valentines Day. I did not get it to the finish line at that time, so I thought it would be a perfect match for one of the heart tags. So I went from this to, this! Simple stamping, trimming out the heart oval, and adding the copper leafing around the edging pulls it all together with that gorgeous ribbon! I used the copper leafing pen to color the heart pins, I love how they turned out! All the terrific ribbons & trims are found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store! There you have it! Two small gift packages that are charmed and tagged! Take good care and have a marvelous Monday!
