Welcome to Day 1 of JustRite Stampers' Font Mega Blog Hop! We have TWO days of blog hopping lined up for you, with 54 designers showcasing all kinds of fun, creative projects YOU can make with JustRite's fonts!
AND there is Mystery Blog Candy being given away during the 2-Day JustRite Font Blog Hop! There will be THREE blog candy giveaways on each day and you can only win by leaving a comment on the right blog! The mystery is that you won't know which blog has the candy ... even the designer doesn't know! So as you visit each of the 54 designers over the 2-day event, take time to leave a comment. Then the three designers will randomly draw a name from the comments on their projects -- who knows, the lucky winner may be you! You will have until Sunday at noon EST to leave comments for your chance to win. Then check back at the JustRite Blog on Sunday evening to find out who won.
I love the trendy look of Bingo cards currently being used in papercrafting and thought it would be fun to create CUSTOM Bingo cards (available for download below) for any kind of occasion, from greeting or holiday cards, to scrapbook pages or other types of papercrafting! You can customize these Bingo cards with any wording you'd like!
My first project started out as an 11"x8.5" horizontal scrapbook page of my girls visiting Santa last Christmas, but ended up as a framed keepsake(9"x12")!
After printing my 4.25"x5.50" Bingo card (I used the large red Bingo card download below) onto vanilla cardstock and cutting it out, I used the large Horizontal Wood Stamper (you get a large and a small stamper in the package) to spell out "Santa" with JustRite's largest Brayton 95-point font.
It's easy to just position the Wood Stamper next to the area where you'll be stamping and line up each letter at the top of each column of the Bingo card.
After stamping "Santa" with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink, I inked the edges of the Bingo card to age them a bit.
The red Bingo "dauber" numbers 6 and 9 on the card represent my girls' ages last year at Christmas. The numbers were stamped using JustRite's Times New Roman 50-point font and then punched out with a 3/4" circle punch. The date was also stamped with Times New Roman font and accompanying flourishes, then die cut into a tag shape and popped up on foam tape.
My girls' names were also created with JustRite's Times New Roman 50-point font and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink under the photo. Another thing I LOVE about these fonts is that I never run out of the letter "A" when scrapbooking with JustRite's fonts -- whereas with stickers, I would! If I spell out all of my family's names, with our last name just once, I use EIGHT letter A's!
The snowflakes were die cut from more vanilla cardstock and then sugared with chunky glass glitter adhered with Diamond Glaze. The Zva clear crystals were colored with Copic BG13 marker, to match the aqua colors in the patterned paper. The pom-pom trim was white and I airbrushed it with the same Copic marker!
The wood frame was inexpensive white and I painted it with cream paint and aged it. I have so many ideas for these customized Bingo cards, that I'll be back tomorrow with another project for you! I hope you have fun creating with these cards and JustRite's fonts! (EDITED: Here is an example using my smaller Bingo card with JustRite's 50-point font!)
