JustRite 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop 11

Welcome to the 11th week of JustRite Stampers’ Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops! 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! Don’t forget that JustRite has some Christmas stamps in their newly released CLING line of stamp sets, too -- you can find them HERE. This week, the designers joining the JustRite design team are the Stampers Dream design team and a few other special guests!

For the month of November, we thought we would switch gears a little and throw in some holiday gift ideas using your JustRite stamps, so be watching for those, too, on November’s hops! And in celebration of JustRite’s Christmas Blog Hops, they have a huge surprise for you -- take 25% off All JustRite Original Christmas Stamps now through November 29 -- Don't forget to tell Santa!

For my project I decided to alter a notepad. Well actually, it was a 5" x 8" notepad that I had cut in half vertically at Kwik Kopy. So it's half a note pad! For instructions on covering the note pad you may see this Altered Notepad Tutorial that I did a while back. These are easy and inexpensive to make, and they make fabulous gifts for teachers or coworkers.

The stamp set I used is the new JustRite Sparky the Snowman cling mount set. I stamped on watercolor paper, colored with Tombow Markers and sponged the edges of the oval with Tea Dye Distress Ink . To embellish I used Mini Rhinestones for his buttons and his nose. I embellished the snow on the trees and his hat by using White Opal Liquid Pearls sprinkled with Crystal Ultrafine Glitter .

The layer behind the snowman was cut and embossed with a Scalloped Oval Nestability and Classic Red Prismatics . The top panel and the panel behind the oval are Labels Seventeen Nestabilities . I used Scor-Tape to adhere all the pieces for extra hold.
