JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream - Day One!

It's Day One of a new JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream! We're featuring the latest JustRite release, which includes a host of new holiday images, plus two beautiful nature-themed sets. Can't wait for you to see what the Dream Team has cooked up for the week! Here's the schedule:

Monday: Michelle, Cindy, Denise, Laurie, and me

Tuesday: Denise, Cindy, Tosh, Cammie, and me

Wednesday: Laurie, Leslie, Karen, Christina, Tosh

Thursday: Michelle, Leslie, Christina, Karen, Cammie

For today's card, I've used Whimsical Christmas, a set of six centers and six borders for use with a 2" round stamper. I fell in love with this adorable bird on skates - so cute! I stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Tombow markers, then added a little white Liquid Applique on the earmuff and some Stardust Stickles on the snowflakes and mistletoe berries (at least that's what I hope she's got in her beak?) for added interest.

The first thing I thought of when I saw Basic Grey's Oliver collection was, oddly, Christmas :D With their rich reds and greens and even blues, some of the patterns, such as the green diamond pattern I've used in the background, make for great Christmas designs. Elsewhere on the card: an assortment of fun details including music paper scallops, a pinked rectangle of lightweight canvas (or muslin maybe?), some red and white baker's twine, and, of course, some random, perhaps gratuitous button spillage. I just can't help these ruts I get in {grin}.

Hope your week gets off to a great start!
