There you have it, folks! On Wednesday, each designer will have more details about their prizes, and photographs of specific products! All you're going to have to do is create a card or other paper crafted project using the colors specified for that day (remember, we don't require exact colors... just use whatever you have that is similar!) Then you'll need to upload a DIRECT link to your creation (we're going to have to be picky about this for the Celebration... links that don't go directly to your creation will be deleted!) using the Inklinz widget on the Color Throwdown blog. Then, start commenting! The more you comment, the greater your chances are to win (but only one per blog, please!) The deadline to enter will be 11:59 p.m. on Monday, July 12th so you'll have plenty of time for your creation and comments! Winners will all be randomly drawn.

Any questions, leave it in a comment and make sure there's a way to contact you! We'll do our best to get all your questions answered before the big event!

Happy stamping!

Edited to add: FAQ's and answers....

Q: Can we enter more than one card?
A: Yes, you can but it won't increase your chances of winning since winners will be chosen from the comments left on the designers' blog. To be fair to everyone playing, you can only win one prize. If a participants name is randomly drawn as the winner on one blog, then their name gets randomly drawn on another, a new random number will be drawn.

Q: I'm confused about where we have to leave our comments. Is this going to be like a blog hop??
A: Yes, it is a "blog hop" of sorts, but you don't have to go in any particular order. We ask that you only leave one comment per blog. A complete blog list of the designers who have prizes to give away will be posted with the challenge on Wednesday. The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances will be of winning something!

Q: Can International stampers play along?
A: Absolutely!

Oh my goodness!! All of these prizes look fabulous! I am sooooo bummed I won't be able to play since we are in the process of moving and all crafting supplies are sitting in a warehouse right now. UGH!!! Can't wait to get crafting again. I will definitely be looking at everyone's creations though! Have fun and congratulations!!!

Ayana Posadas said...

This looks exciting!
But I'm confused about where we have to leave our comments. Is this going to be like a blog hop??

Jodi said...

I'm sorry, but I am still confused about the "comments".... Are we supposed to leave them on the blogs of people who submit cards for this? Or is there going to be a list of designers representing the companies donating the prizes and we visit/comment on their blogs? Sorry to have so many questions.

This has been one of the best events I've enjoyed in a long time. I've discovered so much new talent - these ladies are awesome! And so many new papercraft vendors - oh my - my fingers are itching to try out some of these fabulous new stamps I've just discovered. I've met so many wonderful people along the way too. Thanks so much for this GENEROUS giveaway. And congrats on your 100th!
