May You Be Blessed

I hope you've enjoyed JustRite week at Stamper's Dream as much as we have. My heartfelt thanks go to The Dream Team for sharing their fabulous projects and creativity. Aren't they awesome? And they are the sweetest ladies to boot!


For my card today I chose JustRite's new Christmas Nested Frames . Using my new Horizontal Clear Stamper I stamped each of the frames on watercolor paper with Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Malachite embossing powder. I colored the leaves and berries with Tombow Markers , then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage and Pine Needles Distress Inks. The sentiment was stamped and embossed with Malachite Embossing Powder onto a small piece of Mistletoe designer paper.

The frame behind the sentiment panels is Tim Holtz Baroque Bigz Die from Sizzix. I cut it from Sage Prismatics cardstock, then distressed the edges with Pine Needles Distress Ink.

The holly leaves were cut with a punch from my stash. I colored the Kaisercraft Pearls with Copic R27 so they would look like berries.

There is more JustRite goodness for you today from the Dream Team. So please be sure to visit Leslie , Christina , Karen and Cammie to see what they have in store for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is such a gorgeous card. I love the judikins embossing powder that you used. Colors blend so nicely with the rest of the card colors. For me, I prefer the warmth that traditional Christmas colors bring out as shown in your card. Great card very nicely done. TFS.
