Last month’s Guest Star Stamper contest has concluded and was SO fun! I received SO many fantastic entries! It was so inspiring. The winner was Alli Miles! Her wedding ensemble literally took my breath away when I first saw it. And I love how she utilized the borders to create placecards as well. You can stop by the Ink Pad to see her amazing project, along with all the others from our Design Team!
As always, there were a few other projects that just bowled me over with their use of Borders & Corners. I wanted to be sure and share them with all of you and pass on the inspiration! (You can view past month’s Honorable Mentions in the "Passion for Papertrey" side bar as well!)
First up is Lexi Daly. I just LOVED her custom patterned paper! The colors are so unique! And I thought that use of an acetate card was so fitting for the design. Viewing her entry was like a breath of fresh air!
Lauren Meader created this beautiful pot of flowers with some of the bits & pieces in the Borders & Corners sets. I love how she incorporated the layering of transparency w/ bold images over watercolored cardstock! Pure genius!
I loved how Joan Bardee used the rounded square on end and create a beautiful retro-looking backdrop, perfectly framing each of her floral accents. It got me to thinking that you could do this with any shape. She was TOTALLY my inspiration for my Spooky Spider Tea Tin. Thanks Joan!!! (insert me waving!)
I really enjoyed the simplicity of Dana Vitek’s design. The way the butterfly extends over the border was such a nice touch. It was very clever on her part to use the same color ink for both the border and solid butterfly base, making there no need for masking! The colors are totally fab too!
As a reminder, you have until September 13th to get your entires in for this month’s contest. Your projects can feature either Spooky Sweets or Beautiful Blooms. You can read all the details HERE. I look forward to seeing what youall create!
