Just Rite Blog Hop

Christmas Bookmark
I realized while at the dentist this morning that I forgot to write the tutorial portion of this project for the Just Rite 12 weeks of Christmas Blog Hops #6!

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 most of the Copic design team and Certification instructors! So mark your calendars for Wednesdays at 9am Central for great Christmas gift, card & project ideas, starting at the JustRite Inspiration blog!

You may think that I have fallen off the face of the internet, and I do apologize, however, I have been polishing up the new Intermediate Certification manual (which is going to be jam packed with information) and getting ready for Chicago next week.

My project today was made with the new Christmas Ornament Set and Christmas Nested Frames & Occasions set from Just Rite.

I colored the image using G12, G17, Y13, Y17, YR09, R29, R59, C1, C2, C4, and 0. The background paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Everafter collection. I thought it paired perfectly with the pattern on the ornament. The pale gray paper is a textured paper I've had for years. The bling is from Prima, and the big ribbon is from Offray.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I'll be sure to type up the full tutorial tomorrow.

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

Beautiful bookmark is not enough praise... it is stunning...

I have a question about Copic Markers... how well do they do with printed ink from a standard home printer..? I do a lot of computer graphics and want to add a touch of handiwork to my work... Do they cause the black ink to run or smear?

meg, it really depends on the printer, as each printer uses a slightly different ink. You need to test each one.
