JustRite Stockings!!

It's JustRite week at Stamper's Dream this week!! All this week Michelle's Stamper's Dream Team is posting projects made with the JustRite products. And let me tell you, they've come up with some amazing stuff!!!

Now it's my turn, along with Amy. I'm so excited to share my JustRite projects with you today. I love their stamps, they are so versatile!!

I have two stockings to share with you that I displayed against this plate so you can see the dimension.

I saw some fabric stockings in a catalog with place settings inside and thought, hey, I could put coffee spoons or a candy bar in them for party favors, either with the name, or just with a sentiment medallion like the next one.

All I did was draw out the stocking shape on white cardstock for my template, traced it onto the back of this gorgeous My Mind's Eye Laundry line paper, and sewed around the edges. I ended up cutting off the top part of my template and tracing it on a separate dp and matting it to make it look as though the stocking is folded over on the top. I sewed around that piece also and glued it to the front of the stocking.

For the name tag I embossed the name with my JustRite Harmony Rectangular set and the Curlz Font, and cut it out with my rectangle nestabilities.

For the second stocking, I ended up cutting out a heel and toe template too and added those to give it a shabbier look. Both stockings are Ink Distressed. I used the Christmas Stamp Ensemble for this one, and again cut it out with my Nestabilities.

Finally, to give it a bit of bling, I took my Stampin' Up snowflakes, covered them with the stazon glue and poured Doodlebug Sugar over them. LOVE the sparkle and the coverage of that ultrafine glitter!!!

That's it for today's projects. I'll have a card for you tomorrow, and another project with a tutorial on Friday. So don't forget to stop by.
