Winners for Challenge #1!!

SIP Any Challenge 1

Happy Father’s Day!! It’s time to post the winners of the Stamp, Ink, Paper Getting to Know You challenge! First, I want to thank everyone for playing along! We had so many amazing cards on the gallery it was really difficult for us to choose our favorites, no seriously! There are some incredibly talented people out there! So without further delay here are the Design Team picks:

JK Heidi

Justin’s Pick: #28 Heidi Weaver. There were so many amazing cards it was hard to pick just one! But Heidi’s dreamy sea scene with the subtle background and that awesome turtle is just amazing! Congrats Heidi!

AT Amy

Andrea’s Pick: #4 Amy Ettelson. I love the style of the card and the heat embossing is just perfect!

SM Darnell

Sandy’s Pick: #27 Darnell. I’m awestruck by Darnell’s beautiful creation! Such gorgeous coloring!

MM Crystal

Maggie’s Pick: #15 Crystal Komara. The talent is phenomonal and although I wanted to pick more than one, the one card that my heart gravitated towards (repeatedly) was Healther’s two wine glasses. I loved the embossed circles behind the wine glasses…they reminded me of grapes. Grapes are a fruit and we should have five servings right? Each time I looked at it I had a glass of wine in my hand. It was destiny.

TR Heather

Tina’s Pick: #29 Heather King –  Heather’s nautical birthday card was really beautiful!  I loved the dimension from the various circles and her faux stitching really made it stand out!

LA Stacey

Lisa’s Pick: #18 Stacey Tomkowiak.  I kept coming back to this card!!  Love the color combo, the combination of stamp sets, and the little touch of trim to give it some texture.  Beautiful card!!

CL Linda

Carolyn’s Pick: #9 Linda Creates – Linda, I can’t get past that gorgeous background with those beautiful colours and of course the Butterflies.  Your card keept drawing my eye as soon as I looked at the gallery.

And the audience favorite is…

Audience Lynne

Lynne! It must have been the soft and subtle coloring!

Congratulations to all of the winners and everyone that played along! Copy the Winner’s badge below and put it in your sidebar so you can let everyone know that you played along with the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Be sure to come back on Tuesday for our next challenge!! Have a great day! 🙂
