I am really having fun hosting the challenges here at JustRite Inspiration! I hope you are having fun playing along as well. I wanted to point out a few helpful hints to help you find your way around the blog. If you haven't done so, please take this opportunity to "grab our button" on the side menu. Also, you can click on the challenge button graphic on our blog to go directly to the current challenge (a little secret that I use to help me find it). I also have a list of upcoming challenges in the "Challenges" menu.
For this challenge, it's all about "Stars & Stripes" - create a project with stripes and use at least one star! Some of you may immediately think of a patriotic theme but you are not limited to red, white & blue. I made 2 examples that will hopefully inspire you to the think outside the box!
This is a fun card for any occasion using a sentiment from Christmas Vintage Labels One and lace edge border from Classic Lace Edges One that was stamped directly on my striped paper. I also wanted to do a traditional "stars & stripes" theme using the same Christmas set but this time I added the polka dot label and a sentiment from Summer Words.
You can get full details about how I created my cards on my blog here.
The rest of the team is gearing up for the July Release Hop starting Monday, July 2nd. So please check back every day next week to see all the amazing projects we will have for you!
The 3 Honorable Mentions for JRC#076 will each receive 1 background stamp of choice PLUS a 5" x 6" acrylic stamp block.
The Random Draw Winner for JRC#076 will receive 1 clear Lace Edges stamp set of choice PLUS a 2" x 8" acrylic stamp block.
You will need to use JustRite Stamps on your project and upload it to an online blog, gallery or photo hosting website. You may make and enter as many different projects as you'd like for our challenges. You will then need to link to your project back here on our blog post, using the linking system on this challenge post. Please make certain your link is directly to your project, not just your general blog home page or overall photo gallery, so we can find it easily. (Links that are spam, commercial in content, or are not linked properly/directly to your project will be deleted). If you choose to upload your project to www.Splitcoaststampers.com OR our Flickr gallery, please use the weekly challenge code (example:JRC_076 <== that's an underscore between the letters and numbers) in the keyword section of the Splitcoast project upload page or the tag section of the Flickr gallery.
You will have until Wednesday, July 11th at 6:00 PM Central to make your project and enter a link to it below. Winners will be chosen and announced the next day (Thursday, July 12th) here on the JustRite Inspiration Blog. By entering our challenges, you grant JustRite Stampers permission to use your artwork here on our blog as well as our company website gallery (with designer credit given and your blog post or gallery linked) or any possible advertising.
