JustRite's 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop 8!

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops 8! 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! And don’t forget that JustRite has some Christmas stamps in their newly released CLING line of stamp sets -- you can find them HERE. This week, the designers joining the JustRite design team are the Flower Soft and The Shabby Tea Room challenge blog design teams! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

My card uses the mitten from the new CLING set called Sparky the Snowman. I wanted two mittens so I stamped on a transparency, laid my card stock on top of it and rubbed my hand over it. I then lifted up the paper and had reverse image! I paper pieced the mitten, added glitter, and little pom poms to the wrist. : ) I then layered my images over tan felt cut with Spellbinder's mitten die. I stamped the sentiment in brown Memento ink, added red line tape to either side and sprinkled glitter over it. For a finishing touch, I added a doily, some vintage lace, and a some Glimmer Misted seam binding.
