This week’s prize is sponsored by Paper Pretties.

This week’s sketch was a little harder for me than previous sketches. I worked quite a while trying to get a combination of papers and such that I liked, but I am really happy with what I wound up making. I saw the “Santa’s Toy Co” stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms and the idea for a Naughty/Nice list popped into my head. I used the Ledger paper from Cosmo Cricket’s “The Boyfriend” DP stack. I added tons of Distress Ink, wrote the list, then distressed more. I pop dotted the tag over the list, and love the overall effect.

Thanks for looking!

JustRite Challenge #35

This week’s JustRite Friday Challenge is sponsored by SpellBinders! The challenge is to make a Christmas tag using JustRite stamps. Here is my tag:

I used one of JustRite’s Old Fashioned Christmas stamps for the sentiment and image, and embossed it in gold. I colored the image with Copics and used stickles to add shine on the gifts and bottom of the sleigh. I used my Copic ABS on the ornament shapes (SpellBinders Labels Nine) so they would coordinate with the colors in the stamp. I distressed the edges of the square with distress ink (tea dye) and memento ink (rich cocoa).

Family life was very full over the past month, which is why my blogging was non-existent. I hope to be able to pick back up and do a few posts a week again.

Thanks for looking!

JustRite Challenge #28

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words is the name of the challenge this week. The sponsor is Copic, and the prize is a set of 12 Copic Ciao markers–definitely make sure you check out and enter the challenge this week!

The challenge is to use photos and JustRite stamps to create either a card or a scrapbook page. I had a lot of fun creating a page to enter this morning, I hope you like it!

I love the Old Fashioned Christmas stamp set, and used two of the centers on my page. It was a lot of fun to color the snowmen with my Copics. I used some snowflake stamps to create the tone-on-tone background on the cardstock.   Here are some close-ups (click any photo for a larger view):

JustRite Challange #26

Christmas In July
I love Christmas, and I am looking forward to making my Christmas cards this year. I have been playing with some different ideas, and this week’s JustRite Friday Challenge was the perfect excuse to try one out.

This is a fairly simple card. American Crafts silver foil paper was perfect to use with punches for the snowflakes. I put pearl accents into the center of each of them and on one corner. The JustRite stamp I used was from the Old Fashioned Christmas set. I love how it looks with the gold embossing powder. I stamped the stocking image again in black ink onto cardstock and colored it with Copics and used Christmas Red Stickles and pearl accents for the details.

I think the overall effect is pretty nice; I love anything shiny so this fits the bill! The card came together quickly enough it could be mass produced for Christmas.

I hope you enjoy my card!
