Stef's Challenge and a Coupon

First off...sorry my pics look so whited out. I am still learning how to operate the Photo Studio in a Box. You would think it would be simple...and it is...I just have to get my lights properly adjusted to my liking. This was actually one of the first pics I took...not bad but it is so bright that I lost the detail on the cards. You can barely see that I used a Cuttlebug folder on this card.

So a few weeks back Stefanie from the blog Ingenious Inkling participated in my Spring Fever Challenge. On the last day the participants got to challenge me. Here are Stefanie's challenge rules: my challenge to you is to make a purple card set using your Just Rite Stampers.

As you can see this is more than a set of cards because this is part of a wedding sample I am doing for a Stationary Show coming up in May. There is a card monogramed with the couple's initial. Then I made a book to go at each table so guests can write love notes or marital advice. Then I made a place card with the #8 and finally I made a mini favor tin with the couple's initial.

**Stampin Stuff** The card base is eggplant with a layer of purple pattern paper (sorry no name). The white strip of paper was embossed using the Cuttlebug Textile folder. The monogram was stamped using the small JustRite Monogram stamper (currently called c-30 DIY Monogram stamper). This size monogramer fits perfectly with the SU circle punches and scallop punch. I should receive my Nestabilities order tomorrow from Paper Trey and I hear that the circles fit the small and large monogramers perfectly....I can't wait to try it out.

The mini book was made from coasters that I covered with the pattern paper. I added white pages inside and again the monogram on the outside. I made this book with the Bind It All and I just have to say that I love that thing! Soooooo flippin cool and I am not sure Jen will ever get it back from me. Anyway, I am going to try Dawn's Beaded Pen Tutorial and make a matching pen to go with the book.

**FREE Shipping Code** My friend JoAnne at The Stamp Castle carries all of the JustRite products that I use and talk about here. She is offering FREE shipping to anyone in the continental United States for the rest of April. When you are checking out and want to get free shipping you have to enter the code DENISE in the Promotional Code Box. Feel free to share this shipping code with your friends.
