Have I already mentioned what wonderful customers we have? If I did, it's worth repeating! Along with...
and generous with their talents!
Each entry was to use one or more of Simple Pleasures' exclusive Memory Box stamps to create either a card or an altered 3D item. Very open guidelines. We wondered what kinds of projects we would receive. We shouldn't have worried!
Each and every entry was creative, original and used our 16th Anniversary stamps in beautiful ways. Here is the altered art Grand Prize Winner:
CONGRATULATIONS DEANNA B.!
This is a canvas collage piece using natural found items, handmade paper and our stamps! Love the layers and dimensions of Deanna's piece. Don't you?
It was difficult to choose the winners of the card entries; a tough job for our judges, but I think you'll agree that these cards (and their designers) definitely deserve the recognition!
CONGRATULATIONS KATHLEEN M., our first place card winner!
I absolutely love the subtle details in her card.The layers of ink and the way she used parts of the stamps to create the scene. Did you notice the sun and moon?
The judges couldn't agree on one runner up, so we have two!
CONGRATULATIONS SARAH R. & AUBREY W.!
Check out the paper rose...love how Sarah used the flowers in different elements on her card...the stamps, the paper rose, the words and the vintage colors.
Where there are flowers, there are bound to be butterflies! Aubrey's butterflies are embossed in gold, as is the bloom stamp and seem ready to flutter off this card!
Not only did all of these gals create dazzling cards, they created matching envelopes, carrying the theme of their card designs to the plain white wrapper. Wouldn't you love to receive any of these mini works of art?
I bet you're wondering what the other card entries looked like...well here's a glimpse!
