JustRite Friday Challenge #63: Christmas

For JustRite's Friday Challenge this week, I wanted to work with Spellbinders' Nested Tea Cups won in their recent giveaway. The original out-of-the-box idea I had when I saw the dies isn't at all wintery or Christmas-like, so it will have to wait for now. Spellbinders' awesome DT member, Judy Hayes, posted this gorgeous example.
I've used the cup die as an outdoor hanging lamp, lighting my Christmas sign. The lamp, decorative hanger and sign are all cut from SBs' craft foil. My lampshade's holly and berries border are from JustRite's Christmas Nested Frames, stamped in StazOn ink and colored with red and green Copics. Season's Greetings is from JR's Christmas Nested Sentiments. I Copic colored a piece of vellum to light my sign.

Paper: PTI's Vintage Cream CS; vellum; DP from stash
Stamps: JustRite's Christmas Nested Frames and Christmas Nested Sentiments; Stamps by Judith (pine)
Ink: StazOn Jet Black; Tim Holtz Tea Dye, Antique Linen and Peeled Paint
Dies: (JustRite Custom Dies -- Nested Frame Dies and Nested Sentiment Dies); Spellbinders: Nested Tea Cups; Elegant Posts
Miscellaneous: SB's craft foil; Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter; Copic Markers

What a creative way to use the die - it looks fabulous on this lovely card. I love the lanterns in your previous post too - I can't wait to try them.
