JustRite font *MEGA* blog hop

♥ welcome, blog hoppers! ♥

i hope you're enjoying the amazing and inspiring range of projects featuring JustRite's gorgeous font sets. i'm awestruck by the amazing artists who are participating in this event, and honored to be included! i know it's been a really big day, so let's get right to the photos, ok?

have you ever made a card that turned out COMPLETELY different than you pictured it in your head? well, this one was like that for me: i'd envisaged it being sort of edgy & funky & super-distressed...but apparently it was determined to be shabby chic. finally i had to respect its wishes and go with the flow!

(JustRite products: brayton uppercase font set and horizontal stamper; patterned papers: basic grey, plus some vintage sheet music and ledger paper; cardstock: bazzill; chipboard tag: k&co; flowers: prima; rub-on: making memories; pen: zig; pearls epoxy stickers & ribbon: michaels; inks: colorbox; adhesives: tombow mono runner, uhu gluestick, 3m foam tape)

since every size of justrite font comes with a generous double set of beautiful numerals, i thought they needed to be featured as well as the letters! i loaded the large horizontal stamper block with as many as i could cram on there, even letting some hang over the edge. i stamped the grouping twice on my panel and used it in place of patterned paper as the base ofa fun birthday card. i used the 2 3/8" round stamper & its 25-point times new roman font to make a paper-pieced cupcake with a custom sentiment, added a few coordinating embellishments, and i was all set!

(JustRite products: brayton uppercase font set, horizontal stamper, and 2 3/8" stamper with bonus 25-point font; patterned papers: basic grey, imagination project, my mind's eye, sei, prima, autumn leaves, oriental trading co; cardstock: core'dinations; gems: mambi other: dymo labeler; inks: staz-on, colorbox; adhesives: tombow mono runner, 3m foam tape)

"best fishes" is probably my all-time favorite birthday sentiment to use on "guy cards". for my brother alone, i bet i've made 6 or 7, in every conceivable style! for this incarnation i thought it would be fun to stamp a grouping of text in varying point sizes, but instead of a traditional "block" i've used circular elements to resemble bubbles, outlining and inking them around the edges to give a more dimensional look. my fish is a silhouette made by stapling a photo from an angling magazine to several layers of patterned paper and cutting out around it. i've sponged a few colors of ink around the edges, layered it onto some royal blue cardstock, cut out again, & distressed the edges before adding detail with a copic outliner.

(JustRite products: brayton uppercase font set & horizontal stamper; patterned paper: scrapbook wizard, basic grey, inex page from an old atlas; cardstock: core'dinations; brad: making memories; inks: psx & colorbox; adhesives: tombow mono runner & 3m foam tape)

one of my favorite things about the justrite font sets is that they come with three different point sizesof the same typeface, which is awesome for monograms, address labels, tags...or even just a sentimentwith which you want to have a little fun. this card is definitely the latter: the combination of the slogan... (which i borrowed from the old "rumpole of the bailey" mysteries) ...with my favorite adrienne looman papers and a generous serving of bling really make me smile. i think this is one card i may have to keep for myself! :)

(JustRite products: brayton uppercase font set & horizontal stamper; patterned paper: adrienne looman for prima, sei, kaiser; black glossy cardstock: ranger; bling frame: heidi swapp; chipbaord crown: maya road; flower sequins: doodlebug; sticky pearls: kaiser: inks: staz-on & colorbox)

and now before you head on to the next awesome hop stop, may i remind you that JustRite is celebrating this awesome event with a Super 7 Day Font Sale?! you can take 30% off all font sets and the horizontal and veritical stamper blocks. the sale lasts 9-17 through 9-24, so hurry over and check it out!

oh and one last thing: did you hear about the Mystery Blog Candy being given away during the hop? uh huh. there'll be 3 blog candy giveaways on each day and you can only win by leaving a comment on the right blog! but here's the thing: you won't know which blog has the candy...even the designers don't know! so as you visit each blog, you might just want to leave a comment...who knows, the lucky winner may be you!!!!! you have until sunday at noon to leave a comment for your chance to win; then check back at the JustRite Blog on Sunday evening to find out who won!


Enjoy the Hop!!!
