Today is another Friday JustRite Friday Challenge and yet more opportunities for you to win amazing prizes including a $50 JustRite Shopping Spree.  Those lucky card makers receiving honorable mentions also win and all you need to do is create a sympathy card or get well card using JustRite Stamps.  All the details for this Challenge can be found here: JustRite Inspiration Blog  

I used JustRite's Thinking of You Set  with Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Ovals Sm .  The ribbon is from Offray and the flower is Prima Marketing. To create that little border edge at the bottom of the card I used Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Borderabilities .  Finally those darling little butterflies are from Tim Holtz.

I hope you all have exciting plans for this weekend and that some of them include crafting!  I plan to work some cardmaking into my weekend for sure!

Happy Friday

Welcome to the first day of the JustRite Stampers Mega March Blog Hop!  To kick off this humongous event JustRite Stampers has gathered some 87 Designers who will be showcasing their work over the next 3 days.  The most exciting part is that JustRite Stampers will be giving away FIVE shopping Sprees each day!

Today during the JustRite Mega March Blog Hop (Day One) JustRite and its sponsors will be giving away the following five prizes:

Blog comments for Day One will be open until Thursday at 6pm EST.  On Friday, JustRite will announce on their blog which five blogs have the mystery candy for Day One.  You will need to go to the JustRite blog to determine where you need to go to find out if you are one of the five lucky winners.

Here is the list of today's participants.  If you miss someone you can always go back to the JustRite Blog and catch up where you left off:

Your questions answered:

Copic markers that I used on the flowers: Sketch RV19, RV14, R85 and Ciao BV08, R37

Those dimensional poofy dots through the lattice are actually Glitter Domes/gems by Crystal Stickers (I picked mine up at Archivers).  I stuck each dome/gem in a lattice hole to create the illusion that they were peeking through (pretty simple yet so effective!)

To create the 3D flowers stamp each flower twice on white cardstock.  The flower is from JustRite's My Garden Borders & Centers Round.  Color the entire surface of the first flower paying attention to shadowing and highlights on the bottom outer petals. Neatly cut along the edge of the petals.  Next color the inside smaller petals of your second stamped flower.  Pay attention to shadowing and highlights.  Neatly cut around the edge of the smaller inner petals.  Cut along some of the petals and left edges for dimension.  Using a foam dot adhere the first flower to the second flower. finish by securing a button to the center.

I cut and embossed the lattice strip using Spellbinders Lattice Borderabilities® Petite.
After adhering the lattice border to your card and candle simply stick the glitter domes in each little lattice hole.
Thank you so much for joining me here today.  Please feel free to ask me any questions about my project: I will do my best to get back to you with the right answer asap :)  I sincerely hope that I am the mystery prize holder and that someone that comments on my blog wins so leave me a comment and cross those fingers!  Good luck everybody and enjoy the Hop!

Dreaming of...

This week the JustRite Friday Challenge is very close to my heart because Spellbinders is sponsoring the prize!!!!  You can win Spellbinders Dies (new releases) or Impressabilities simply by making a card that meets these requirements:

1. Use JustRite Stamps 
2. Mix 'n Match (use a combination of two different JustRite Stamps)

Now on my sample I had fun with JustRite's square border from the 2" Decorative Square Monogram Kit .  Next I stamped the cake image from the Friendship Borders & Centers Round Set and colored it in with some yummy frosting colors using my Copic Markers.  Now the cake image is from the 3 1/4" Diameter round Set and the frame measures 2" but I purposely wanted the cake to be in front of the frame (all I did was trim it and pop-dot it to my card).  It shows that different size JustRite stamps and different shapes can still work together in a fun unconventional way.  

I matted the stamped square on Spellbinders Big Scalloped Squares LG , which ironically is similar to the set that JustRite is giving away for this challenge *hehe* I promise that this is a coincidence which I am thinking is kinda funny and random..okay moving right along.  Cosmo Cricket was my paper of choice for this card and to make my life even simpler I used their pre-printed journaling block from their Honey Pie Collection - sweet!

It is really so easy for you to win and anyone can play (well anyone except the JustRite DT but you know what I mean). All the details for this challenge can be found here: JustRite Blog 

I am off to do some work - it is snowing here today and we are supposed to get 7-12" in our area....mmm sounds like hot-chocolate, pancakes and princess DVD movie weather...

Have a fantastic Friday

Striking gold..

For Moxie Fab World the challenge is Diggin' on Doilies & Lace .....mmmm!  Ok so at this stage in this house there is no trace of either - weird I know :) THEN I remembered my brand new October Afternoon paper (yep the Thrift Shop collection) had some beautiful lace images on and so it came about, through pure random coincidence, that I do in fact have lace that looks like doilies!  I struck gold!  To finish the card up I decided to pair the lace up with a frilly romantic custom sentiment from JustRite Stampers called Special Occasions Font (stamped with a horizontal stamper).

Another gorgeous day in Colorado is in the forecast...and then snow.  We will be outside tomorrow :)

Take care
