"50 Shades of GREEN" Readers Blog Hop Giveaway - March 11-30!

Calling all our fans!
We are excited to be hosting our very first
 Readers Progressive Blog Hop Giveaway!
"50 Shades of GREEN" 
Blog Hop starts today at 11am PST and EVERYONE is invited to participate for a chance to Win a $20 gift certificate to spend at Lost Coast Designs!

Members of our talented Lost Coast Designs DT are kicking off the hop for you today with some fabulous monochromatic projects created in Shades of Green! 
Hop our blogs by clicking on the projects in our inlinkz Blog Hop Roll below to get inspired and then come and join the fun!

How to Participate!  

1.  Make a project using ONLY Lost Coast Designs and/or Carmen's Veranda images with a green monochromatic colour scheme!  You CAN USE sentiment stamps from other companies as long as the LCD/CV stamps are the main focus!  White cardstock & black ink can be used as well as embellishments, die cuts, etc!  NO image rubber stamps or digi stamps by other companies! 
Entries not following the rules of the hop will be deleted!

2.  Publish your projects on your own blogs any time between March 11 through to March 30 and provide your readers with all the details about our blog hop and link to this post!  You can also grab the above blog badge and share it in your sidebars!  

3.  Please embed the Inlinkz code provided into your post on your own blog to keep the hop rolling!  Click HERE to grab the code you need for either Blogger or Wordpress blogs!

4.  Embed the code in your blog post by doing the following:
  • Draft up your new post as you normally do
  • Switch your post view while in draft to HTML view for Blogger or TEXT for Wordpress
  • Insert the code
  • Switch the view back to "compose mode" & publish your post as normal
 Don't worry, it sounds complicated but it really is as easy as copying and pasting some "text" into your post to include our inlinkz blog hop collection and keep the blog hop rolling!
Please don't hesitate to comment on this post if you have any questions!

5.  Once you've published your project on your blog, copy your post link from your browser (the link to the actual post and not your blog home page).  Link up your project to our blog hop by adding it to the Inlinkz blog hop roll which you will see is now included in your post!  The linky tool is exactly the same kind used in our challenges and other challenges elsewhere!  Please use your name or nickname and not a project title.

6.  Enjoy hopping all the projects that will be added throughout March so check back often to see when new ones are added to the hop and remember to leave a comment on each blog entered as well as on this post to qualify for the prize!  Any entries not following the rules will be disqualified!

The hop will close at NOON PST on March 30th and the winner announced on March 31st!

One winner will be selected from all the entries & win a $20 gift certificate to spend at Lost Coast Designs!  I will also award some Honourable Mention blog badges to projects that catch my eye ;0)

This hop is going to be so much fun, are you excited to get stamping?
We can't wait to see all your fabulous green creations!

May the luck of the Leprechauns be with you and have fun!

  1. I am linked up! Made a steampunk grasshopper card. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! HAVE FUN HOPPING.

    1. Wooohooo and we're off ;0) Fabulous card as always my dear friend!

  2. My project is ready to go but I've used die cuts (stars, banner, sentiment) along with my LCD stamp - is that permitted? I'll wait to hear before adding my link - don't want to be deleted LOL!

    1. Absolutely! You can use whatever embellishments you want! The only imagery allowed must be either a Lost Coast or a Carman Veranda no digi stamps either! The exception to our rule is Sentiment stamps by other companies, those can be included as long as the LCD/CV stamp is the main focus!

    2. Awesome! Thank you! I just linked up my card - hope you like it! Looking forward to hopping around to see everyone's creations!
