Card Contest Winners 2012

Grand Prize Winner

Artist: Roxanne Marker
Title: Proud To Be

Stamps used: Windmill, Barn, Tiny Cow, Hay Bale.

Supplies: Rubberhedgehog Stamps, watercolored paint, Distress Ink, Mulberry paper, Archival Brilliance Inks, and Memory Box Dies

Artist's Instructions:

Four different Rubberhedgehog stamps were used (barn, windmill, small grinning cow, and haystack - Find Farm rubber stamps here.). The background was painted using watercolored paints. Distress Ink and craft nibs were used to pain the barn. The windmill is heat embossed in silver with popped blades. The three dimensional wire fence is made with bundled mulberry paper and real wire layered over mulberry paper green field. The cows and haystacks are stamped with Archival Brilliance Inks, cut out and raised with foam. The clouds were layered (and popped with foam) and colored using memory box dies. The entire scene is backed with more raised foam for a very dimensional effect.

View all of the 2012 Card Contest Entries.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our 2012 Greeting Card Contest - receiving all your cards was great fun!

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 5 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. Honorable mention card crafters will receive a small gift in the mail from our crew for their amazing contributions to this year's contest. If you are a winner and have not been contacted, please email us using our contact form.
