This card was made with Just Rite Cling stamps and Spellbinder dies. The dies are great but when used with the gorgeous Just Rite co-ordinating stamps they are amazing.
I would have to say that this combination is my 'Christmas must have' for this year.
I stamped the baubles from the Just Rite 'Merry and Bright' set and embossed them with silver, then I coloured them in with watercolour pencils before cutting out with the Spellbinder Heirloom Ornament 2010. The images do line up perfectly with the dies and as you can see through the die it is quite easy to get it spot on. The larger bauble has a blank centre where you can stamp any one of the greetings from the set, but I chose to cut this out using a Spellbinder circle die and insert a photo of Maple. This is a great way of personalising a card to a friend or family member.
The background has been embossed using a 'That Special Touch Of'' mask - Polka dots. A little ribbon, a small bow on top of the bauble and another backed with Bakers Twine in pastel blue with bells on, mounted on pale blue mirri card and then onto white card finishes it off.
Please come along to Jarrold's on saturday if you are in Norwich and see the other creations made with these amazing stamps and dies. For those of you that can't I'll post some more samples next week. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of them.
