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!  


Each day of the hop JustRite will have five Mystery Blog Candy Prizes hidden along the hop with a total retail value of  $600.  JustRite will randomly select five mystery blogs each day of the hop and randomly allocate each of the shopping sprees.  For your chance to win, simply leave a little love (a comment) on each designer’s blog including the JustRite blog.  The more designers you leave comments with, the better your chances of winning.  Each day’s comments will remain open for three days.  A winner from each of the mystery blogs’ comments will be randomly chosen using Random.org.  Consult the listing of designers at the JustRite blog each day (each day’s designers will be different) and start out on your way!  Beginning Friday, March 26, summaries of all the winners will be posted on the JustRite blog.  Good luck to everyone and enjoy all the JustRite eye candy along the hop! 



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

· $200 JustRite Shopping Spree
· $100 Spellbinders Shopping Spree
· $100 Stampers Dream Shopping Spree, and
· Two additional $100 JustRite Shopping Sprees! 

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!
