Spectrum Noir Summer Blog Hop


Welcome to the very first Spectrum Noir Blog Hop!  

This week our entire design team has come together to start off summer with a grand celebration of Yellow - the color of summer!  If you have landed here from Louise's blog, you are hopping in the right direction.  If not, pop over to the Spectrum Noir Blog so you do not miss a single stop!

Here is the project I made for today's blog hop:

Stamps:
Paper:
Bazzill Basic colored cardstock
DCWV Lemon Flower Mat Stack patterned paper
Ink:
Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink
Dress and Hair: CT1, CT2, CT3, CT4, GB1, GB3, GB6
Skin: FS2, FS5
Other:
EK Success Border Punch
Spellbinders Dies
JoAnn's Star Brads colored with GB6 to match the card

The brads that I started with were yellow but they were a little too bright for the tone of the card so I colored them with a GB6 marker to make them look like this:

I think they look really cool with the light yellow border!

We are excited to announce that our new Spectrum Noir website and blog is up and running. If you have not had a chance to check out all of the great tutorials, tips, suggestions and samples our design team has posted, today is a great day to take a peek.  Before we get to the rest of the blog hop, how about we add a bit more excitement?  Spectrum Noir is going to award one lucky winner with a full set of 72 Basic Spectrum Noir Pens!  Yes, that's right...all twelve sets of six pens each.


Entering to win is easy.   Leave a comment on the Spectrum Noir Blog Hop Post telling us one fun new thing (tip, trick, interesting combination of colors, etc) you learned about the Spectrum Noir markers while hopping with us this week.  A random winner will be drawn using random.org and posted on our blog at 9:00 AM GMT, Saturday, June 23, 2012 so be sure to check back with us to see if you have won!  The lucky winner will have one week to claim their prize or a second winner will be chosen.  
How about a bonus chance to win?  
If you add our blinkie to your blog and mention in your comment that you've done so, you will be entered into a second contest to win a $25.00 or £25.00 gift certificate to be used on any Spectrum Noir product at Crafter's Companion (the US or UK site).  To add the Blinkie, simply download the code from the downloads section on the Spectrum Noir Blog and place it prominently in the sidebar of your blog. 
Do not forget to let us know in your comment on the Spectrum Noir Blog Hop Post  that you have added the blinkie to your blog!

Now, hop on over to the next amazing blog and check out what  Marcea has to share!  In case you get lost along the way, here is the entire hop order:


Thanks for joining us today, and best of luck on winning a 72 piece set of Spectrum Noir pens (and maybe even a gift certificate)!
