Honorable Mention

By April 16, 2007General

Head over to Papertrey’s website if you haven’t yet seen the winners of our Guest Star Stamper contest!  Heather Jackman created an amazing background by looking at Green Thumb a little differently.  And Jen Stevenson made a fun butterfly "trail" using one of the sentiments from Butterfly Kisses!  Congratulations girls!  Your FREE Faux Ribbon sets should be arriving shortly!  We got so many fantastic entries for the Guest Star Stamper contest this month, I thought I would give a few artists an "Honorable Mention".


Michelle Giraud really caught my attention with the way she created an interactive grasshopper element.  He is mounted on wire and looks like he can be quite active when poked or prodded!  What a fun accent for a child’s birthday card They would LOVE that!

Emily Gunnel created this beautiful "wisteria" card.  The detail and dimension is amazing!  And it was one of the most creative floral projects we received using this set.

Lexi Daly maximized her creativity by creating an "old-school" green berry basket for her strawberries to reside in.  Isn’t that fun?!?!  And it reminds me that summer is just around the corner!

Julie Masse caught my eye with her unique use of the strawberry stamps.  The way she made it appear that they were still on the vine and climbing from the corner of the card was just so fresh!

Kirsten DuBosque made  a sweet pea card that featured a combination of  a unique color scheme and eye-catching arrangement of peas.  I love how she pulled all of the colors from the ribbon she chose.  Brilliant!


Alli Miles made this super cute journal with matching pen.  I love how she created small butterfly "charms" from polyshrink and attached them to both the notebook spine & pen. You go girl!

Teresa Shaw made a butterfly appear as though it was flight in this clever design.  She simply folded it in half to get this really amazing effect.

Sharon Harnist’s entry just took my breath away with it’s beautiful color palette and detail.  I love how she inked the bottom and top of the wings using two different colors.

Adelina Starace made these beautiful transparent butterflies.  They appear as thought they are caught in mid-flight!  Beautiful detailing!

Bethany Paull came up with this really amazing technique for the solid butterfly in this set.  She heat embossed it in clear onto patterned paper.  While it was pliable, she manipulated the wings to appear as though it was in flight.  What a great concept that could be used with so many different papers for a variety of looks!

Meli Mitchell was REALLY creative and made a flower by layering butterfly wings! Now THAT is what I call thinking outside of the box!

We received over 550 submissions for this month’s contest and it WAS so hard to chose a winner!  There were SO many beautiful cards!  Thank-you to everyone who submitted!   This month’s contest is calling for projects created with Faux Ribbon and entries are due by May 13th.  For those of you  who did not get your set ordered before we sold out ( so sorry guys!  You overwhelmed us with your interest compared to previous releases and we weren’t prepared!!!), we are hoping to have it back in stock in approx. 2 weeks.  If ordered then, you should still receive it in time to play for at least a couple days and send in your entry!  Thanks again!

    What beautiful cards! They are all very inspiring!

    I am one of the unfortunate ones who did not stay up late enough to order Faux Ribbon (dang it!). Are you going to have a waiting list, or is it just first come first serve again. I really want the new set!

    Thanks for the beautiful stamps!
