BIG- MEGA JustRite Blog Hop - Day 1



It is that time - a gigantic blog hop using JustRite stamps. I was so excited to be able to take part since I so enjoy using their unique stamps.

Both of my cards use stamps from the Plant a Little Love set. I stamped these first flowers on white cardstock with black Versafine ink and embossed all of the images with clear embossing powder. Then I cut that out in a square after I colored the image with Copic markers. I masked my flowers and sprayed this with yellow Memories Mist spray. The patterned papers are by BasicGrey.

The middles of the flowers were accented with Ultra Fine Flower Soft using Aleene's Tacky Glue. I stamped the circle stamp separately from the flowers and cut that out. It is added over the colored flowers piece with foam tape for added dimension.
For this stamp I used a red Memento stamp pad and embossed that with clear. I like the look that comes with the colored ink. Again this was colored with Copic Markers.
The patterned papers on this card are Little Yellow Bicycle and the embossed piece is Core'dinations cardstock.
Now for the details of the HOP:
27 designers, FIVE shopping sprees each day. No one knows where the prizes will be! 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.
