JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop Week 7

by on October 20, 2010

Hello there!!  I have a simple project to share that I hope you’ll enjoy.  By the way, welcome to JustRite Stampers’ newest Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops – Week 7!   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!  You also might see some projects from the JustRite design team, using some of our newly released CLING stamps!  You can find our new collection of cling stamps HERE.  This week, the designers joining us are most of the Spellbinders and Caardvarks design teams!  So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog! 

For my project simply had to make a pair of felt covered, stamped mitten clips.  Using JustRite Stampers new cling set called Sparky the Snowman – Cling and Spellbinders Nested Mittens, I had the perfect excuse to try a pair and it was far simpler than I thought.  I simply stamped and embossed the mitten then cut it out leaving very little margin.  Then using the medium nested Mitten die, I cut two from felt.  I re-purposed a hair clip that I found in the bathroom – I don’t know what the "real" name is, but it is metal and is similar to a clothespin in that when you press on both sides of the end, on the other end it opens like a mouth.  I cut a small slit at the top of my felt and inserted the hair clip between my two pieces of felt so that in the end I would have paper, clip, felt, felt, clip, paper – the clip is sandwiched between the paper and felt.
I kept my card very simple as it’s intended to hold the clip when giving as a gift.  I centered a sentiment using Spellbinders Petite Ovals Small and Fancy Tags then tied a bow.  The Mitten Clip simply clips on the side of the card.   

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  JustRite Stampers – Sparky the Snowman – Cling
Paper:  My Minds Eye, Bazzill
Ink:  Versamark with Ivory Embossing Powder, red ink
Accessories:  Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Spellbinders Nested Mittens, Spellbinders Petite Ovals Small, Ribbon, Hair clip, red felt, pearls

Please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous JustRite Christmas inspiration they have for you on the hop today!

Thanks to all for your well wishes, each one brings a breath of hope.  I’m at a loss for words over my hubby’s health it’s nothing less than a roller coaster.  Knowing we have our faith, friends and the love of family helps us put one foot down in front of the other and keep going.   Please continue your prayers if you can, both John and I appreciate it.

Becca, you have done it again. What a great idea. That clip looks wonderful. So does your card.

I love it….and yet another way to use the Fancy Tags. I had to have them after looking at how you’ve used them on so many cards. I’m in the middle of making a card for a co-worker using them at this time…they are so versatile!

I used to make these a long time ago. I guess with the die cuts it makes it a lot easier than having to cut everything by hand. Mittens might go on my wish list, lol!!

Dear Becca,

Your *Amazing* creations always astound me … and your latest project is no exception! How you keep on keeping-on producing such inspirational projects, I will never know. Your latest card is beautiful, and the mitten clip is such a fabulous idea! That you are able to continue your wonderful work, and that you still take the time to share it with us all at such a terribly stressful time is pretty incredible. You are truly gifted, and a very special lady.
All of my warmest wishes are being sent to you and John, and to all of your family. Give John a Huge Fighting-Back Hug from me, and Love to You All x

Two of my favorite verses that I want to pass on to you! You are such an encourager of others, I pray these will encourage you!!!

Have mercy on me, O God, Have mercy on me. For in you me soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until this dissaster has past. Psa. 57:1 (MESSAGE)

When my soul is in the dumps, I rehearse everything I know about you!! Psa. 42:6 (MESSAGE)

Dear Becca

I would like to share that I feel each and every one of your cards are so so precious and full of love, masterpieces indeed but recently I feel a little bit overwhelmed with that round piece of crystal stones that you put it on, it somehow feels too much and it created a gap for me of where to put attention and felt a bit confusing. With a truly loving heart, secret pal

PS: I think it has to do with, that your precious art is just so perfectly divine and beautiful all by itself.
