JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #5

Hi everyone and welcome to today's JustRite Stampers Christmas blog hop #5!!

Every Wednesday 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 gifts, cards and project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

I have 2 cards to share with you today, both using my FAV Christmas set of the collection, Groovy Snowman and my FAV Christmas paper, Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather!!

First up, I went CAS and uses some simple circles created from my Classic Circle Nestability dies.  The sentiment is from Christmas Nested Frames.  I did very little embellishing, some 1/4" purple silk ribbon and purple rhinestones was about it.  I just LOVE the non-traditional purples in this paper pack, just makes me SMILE!
My next card uses the same image and paper pad, but with this card I added a few more layers and used the green and red papers in the pack for a totally different look.  I used the cream Wrinkled ribbon and added some red rhinestones.  The little snowflake and sentiment are from the Holiday Cheer set.  They are so small and cute and were the perfect way to add a sentiment to this card design.
 To further the celebration, the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is currently running a sale of 15% OFF on all Spellbinders products in stock until Monday, 10/11!

Please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous Christmas projects they have for you on the hop today!

  4. These are both so pretty and festive. Love the use of the circles and the fun color in your first card but I've got to go with the more traditional color scheme as my favorite pick.
