JustRite's Christmas Blog Hop #5!

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 uses the Christmas Treasure's set. I embossed it in white and kept the card very clean and graphic. (Which as you know, is not something I normally do! ; ) The paper is by American Crafts and influenced the feel to this card. I cut the circles and Pinked edge using my Spellbinder's dies. The sticker was in my Christmas stash of stuff and was running loose in my box.....so I am not sure who makes it! I did add red glitter to the holly berries. I also added some tiny rhinestones to the sky.


For more inspiration be sure to visit these fabulous designer's blogs! : )

It's October! Free Gypsy?

Can ya hardly believe it's October already? Seriously? How the heck did that happen? This weekend I put out all of my Halloween decorations and got the house looking quite festive. It all looks so cozy and cute! So in honor of Halloween's arrival.....I created a lil' card the occasion! I used Noel Mignon's "31st" kit from last year. Her Halloween kits are always so much fun! This year's kit, Sleepy Hallow, sold out it one day! : ) I added some googly eyes to my very sparkly pumpkin..........cuz one can not have an eyeless pumpkin! That would just be wrong! ; )
I cut the tag with a Spellbinder's die and added a Thickers "b" and two small Jenni Bowlin stickers for the o's. I added some sheer ribbon to tie it to and added a pumpkin stick pin.

Have you tossed in your name for the TWO free Gypsies I am giving away? If you haven't yet be sure to click HERE to put your name in. I will use Random.org on Friday to select TWO winners! : )
Have a great Monday!!!! : ) Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me!
