Christmas Card- Day One with Kathy Jones

This week Kathy Jones our JustRite Design Team Member from Australia is joining us as our guest blogger. You will want to pop on over today to Kathy's personal blog -Inspired to Stamp because she has been playing with her new stamp sets from the November Release that just arrive Down Under late last week. She has two terrific projects there. Today Kathy will show you just how versatile our stamps are as she used components from 3 different stamps sets to create todays gorgeous card.

Hello Everyone! I am so looking forward to a fun week here at JustRite with all sorts of projects to show you!!

Today’s project is a Christmas Card! It’s that time of the year and I’ve just realised how close Christmas is, so it’s time I got busy with cards or I’ll be making them at the last minute! I couldn’t decide which of the beautiful Christmas Sets to choose from, so I ended up using THREE! LOL!!
I started with a deep pink bazzill base and layered with Gold, Very Vanilla and some Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DSP. Next I took a piece of Vanilla, punched both sides with the Fiskars Lace Border Punch and embossed it with Swiss Dots embossing folder. Across the bottom I’ve knotted some gold ribbon that I’ve had in my stash since last Christmas! The sentiment is from the Christmas Joy Set and I’ve stamped only ‘Blessings’ in black on Vanilla and then cut it out using the Fancy Tags Spellbinders Set and lightly sponged the centre with Rose Red and popped the panel up on the ribbon.



The main image is a combination of Christmas Treasures (centre)
and Old Fashioned Christmas (Border), which I’ve stamped in Versamark on Vanilla twice and embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut both with Large Circle Nestabilities and popped the centre panel up on foam tape and matted the whole piece with more deep pink bazzill cut using the Large Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. To finish I added some Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the top corner and each side of the sentiment.

Stamps – Christmas Treasures, Old Fashioned Christmas, Christmas Joy
Paper – Deep Pink Bazzill, Very Vanilla, Gold, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses DSP
Ink – Versamark, Black
Accessories – Fancy Tags, Large Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Gold Ribbon, Foam Tape, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and stop by tomorrow for another project!!

Looks good Kathy, like what you did with the main circle, goes well with the papers that you chose, Nice to see the flow from the blessings panel out to the papers and the circle feature...
