JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #4

Welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #4!   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!  This week, it’s the Spellbinders design team!  So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

Just this past week readers shared their thrifty tips on how frugal they are when they craft and during life in general.  After reading so many great comments it had me thinking how satisfying it is to find something, a left over perhaps from another part of my life that I am then able to use in crafting.   My mind settled on some pretty, pretty lace cupcake liners I used for a gift quite some time ago.  I had several of them left over and I used them on my card today.  Those black cupcake liners, like most liners, have a curve.  I used this to make an arch to highlight the JustRite stamps that I used for my Christmas Card.  I just love the filigree look, I think it makes a stunning backdrop!!  I ran my ribbon right behind the filigree since you can see through it. 

I picked JustRite JB-08770 Christmas Joy as my focal image.  It’s a tried and true sentiment from the JustRite Christmas Collection.  I love the vertical oval and it matches several of my Spellbinders perfectly.  For the oval medallion I layered  Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals SM , then Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals SM and lastly Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM.  My image is colored with Copic Markers.    I used the two cupcake wrappers by just folding them over the edge of my card and taping them on the back.   I tried and tried to slather pearls all over this but my spidey sense just said no.   Instead, three understated pearls on a cosage pin break up the strict symmetry.

How are you coming on your Christmas cards.  I promise you, we’ll be there before you know it!!  So how was my attempt to be frugal today?  If you like it and would like to see more items like this, please leave a comment to let me know :-)  In the mean time, please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous JustRite Christmas inspiration they have for you on the hop today!

Never would had guessed it was a cup cake liner……never. Again, Just Beautiful! And would love to see you use other things in different ways!ReplyCancel

  • MarianSeptember 29, 2010 - 9:58 am

    I too wondered about the “lace”…I thought it may have been from a Cricut! Gorgeous…I have never seen them. Is that something that can be found at Michaels?
    Beautiful (as per usual :) )ReplyCancel

  • Karen WSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:01 am

    How gorgeous, what a great idea and I’ve never heard of lace cupcake liners? Fabulous!ReplyCancel

  • Mary HaverlandSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:12 am

    Would love to see more ideas along these lines. Have never seen these cupcake liners at H/L (Don’t bake!). I will look for them next H/L visit. I thought it was lovely lace. What a stunning card…each one gets better & better.ReplyCancel

  • MicheleSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:17 am

    Beautiful! Love the look of the lace!ReplyCancel

  • JaneySeptember 29, 2010 - 10:19 am

    I always try to figure out what products you use on a card but this one had me fooled….a cupcake wrapper! First, I’ve never seen a liner this elegant and secondly, I never would have thought to use it as you have.

    Thank you, Becca, for sharing your artistic gifts with us.ReplyCancel

  • chrisdSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:22 am

    Another lovely idea. More frugal ones too at least once in a while please!ReplyCancel

  • LenoriaSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:30 am

    I love it and would never have dreamed it was a cupcake liner!ReplyCancel

  • Judy CoveySeptember 29, 2010 - 10:31 am

    I love how you showed your frugality in your card. I can’t really picture what your cupcake liners look like to be able to come up with such a beautiful shape underneath your image. Is it possible to post a picture of the cake cake liner, so that we can see the before and after? I would love to see more cards showing your frugal side. I LOVE this one!!!ReplyCancel

  • Cynthia WilliamsonSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:42 am

    Oh My ! What sort of naughty cupcake would you use those on? The card as always is stunning.ReplyCancel

  • EvaSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:49 am

    WOW, Becca, I have never seen these cupcake liners, and I am just amazed how stunning your card is!!! Love EVERYTHING you make!!!ReplyCancel

  • ChrisSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:50 am

    What a Beautiful card! I think that cupcake liner would look great on a Halloween card, too. I absolutely Love all of your cards – you are so inspiring!ReplyCancel

  • EzSeptember 29, 2010 - 10:53 am

    Stunning!!! Love the use of color combination. That is an amazing cupcake liner. Did you get them at a speciality store?ReplyCancel

  • Marla H.September 29, 2010 - 10:58 am

    WOW I have never seen cupcake liners like this. I too thought it was lace!! I would LOVE to see more of your frugal tips!! You are truly amazing!!ReplyCancel

  • AlexandraSeptember 29, 2010 - 11:06 am

    As usual your card is stunning Becca. I have never seen or heard of cupcake liners in UK, they’re gorgeous. Seems a shame to mess them up with cake though. At first glance I thought you had maybe used a fancy Cricut cut out design that I’d missed. I suppose this kind of look could be achieved with an intricate Cricut image.

  • stephanieSeptember 29, 2010 - 11:27 am

    This is stunning!!!ReplyCancel

  • MarcieSeptember 29, 2010 - 12:47 pm

    Becca this card is so elegant. I just love it. Glad I read thru to see where the lace came from. Never would have guessed that it was a cupcake liner thou. Where did you find these. I’m a baker and have never seen these. However, Martha Stewart has teamed with Provo Craft and has a cake cartridge with nothing but cupcake designs shaped like these. However, I don’t believe any of the designs are as this intricut or as beautiful. Must share where you found these. Please. This is definitely where frugal and saving has paid off.

  • MoniqueSeptember 29, 2010 - 12:49 pm

    I have never seen anything like that before… Just gorgeous Becca!!ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn ClarkSeptember 29, 2010 - 12:52 pm

    I must be shopping out of the loop because I have never seen cupcake liners like this. Awesome card. TFS.ReplyCancel

  • BarbaraSeptember 29, 2010 - 12:56 pm

    Yes I would love to see more frugal ideas or designs using older Spellbinders dies, JustRite sets or other things from past years.
    I am on a ” New Ideas for Old Stuff” mission

    Thursday’s supper has always been leftovers before I go shoping on Friday.
    I clean out the freezer and frig and figure out a meal from the left overs.

    Maybe you could do “Left Over Thursday” with cards from old stuff. LOLReplyCancel

  • Camilla DuenteSeptember 29, 2010 - 12:57 pm

    This is a fabulous idea. I will definitely look for those liners when I’m shopping next! Love how intricate they are. Stunning card!!ReplyCancel
