Welcome to Day 2 of the JustRite Stampers Font Blog Hop. JustRite Stampers is celebrating a Mega Font Blog Hop, a two day extravaganza with 54 designers, in style with a Super 7-Day Font Sale. If you’re looking for some fabulous font sets, you won’t want to miss this sale, they are offering 30% off all JustRite font sets and the Horizontal and Vertical font stampers.
The sale begins September 17th and ends September 24th. And to add some fun into the blog hop, Mystery Blog Candy is being given away during the Two Day JustRite Font Blog Hop!! Why is it a mystery? . . . Well, there’ll be three blog candy giveaways on each day and you can only win by leaving a comment on the right blog! The real surprise is you won’t know which blog has the candy . . . even the designers don’t know! So, as you visit each of the 54 designers over the two day event, take time to leave a comment . . . You may be one of the lucky winners! You have until 12:00 noon on Sunday to leave comments for your chance to win. You’ll want to check back at the JustRite Blog on Sunday evening to find out if you’ve won.
Ladies, go grab a cup of coffee (you’ll want a large cup . . . LOL), a yummy danish, sit back, relax and enjoy the blog hop. I hope we’ve provided you with lots of inspiration for your holiday crafting and decorating!
For the designs below I used the above products from JustRite Stampers: Special Occasion Uppercase Font set, Small Letter Font set, Horizontal Wood Stamper set, Autumn Blessings Borders and Centers, and Wood Stamper Oval (large).
I decorated a jar of Pecan Pumpkin Butter and a bag filled with ingredients to make Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Quick Bread to give away as a Fall holiday gift set.
A group picture of the bag, the jar, and the pumkin bread that I baked for my family. Every Fall I receive a loaf of pumpkin bread from a dear friend. She packages it up so beautifully. I’m forever in awe of her thoughtfulness, kindness and talent. This year, I’m giving her this gift set in appreciation for all she does to make me feel special.
A close up of the front of the jar. I covered the jar with the Harvest collection designer paper from Me & My Big Ideas, as well as the lid. I used Petite Ovals and Petite Scalloped Ovals nesties for the pumpkin image, a Spellbinders tag die for the tag, and Circles and Scalloped Circles Nesties for the jar lid. The three strips were cut at 1/4″ and wrapped around the jar. I edged the strips, as well as the oval and circle with a gold Krylon pen. The pumpkins were water colored with Stampin’ Up!’ re-inkers.
I placed a bow on top of the lid with a tag attached. The bow is made of green taffeta ribbon from May Arts. The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart leaf punch. The tendrils were made with Chocolate Chip cardstock. I used the Bow Easy to make the bow and encircled it with the gold cord I used for the tag.
I made two more taffeta bows and attached them to the butter spreaders, so pretty when you’re having guests. They were very easy to apply, I simply attached them with a Glue Dot close to the ceramic edge. For clean up, simply remove them from the utinsel.
I attached another water colored pumpkin panel to the lower corner of the bag and added berries that I purchased at Michael’s. The Michael’s in my area is having a 50% off of all Fall items. I purchased several beautiful pieces for my home as well as a few sprays to use as embellishments for my crafts. The two metal pumpkin tea lights pictured above in the group picture were purchased at Michael’s. So pretty, I can’t wait to light them at the dinner table.
I cut a portion from the Fall spray and adhered it to the bag top, together with a tag that reads, “Spiced Pecan Pumpkin – Quick Bread.” I used bows throughout the project, I’d be lost without the Bow Easy.
