Title: Malena

Stamps used: Ferret.

Stamp is realistically colored in muted tones and is layered portrait style. The star-shaped embellishment was a nice added touch.

A great example of "making it look easy" - this card uses a variety of techniques (embossing, layering, embellishments, etc.) while keeping a simple elegant look.

Stamps used: Yorkie Diva, I Love Yorkies.

Look closely, Chloe is three dimensional with a lovely embossed/raised face!

Loved the creative use of our stamps; here our sea urchin doubles as grass scattered in the foreground. Coloring on this stamp was done with markers and just looks luminous on glossy cardstock.

As always, our choice was very difficult. There were many creative, clever, and polished entries and only four prizes available for this round.

We also chose 4 entries for honorable mention - though we would have liked to have chosen many more for recognition.

All card entries have been resized to fit this page; a few have also been cropped or digitally enhanced in other ways - to better suit this page and our purposes. Our judges made their choice based on the original entries as submitted; many factors were considered.

All decisions are final. Prize packages (store credits) will be sent to Grand Prize and First Prize winners by email.
