Guest Star Stamper

By February 15, 2008General

We accept entries each month for our Guest Star Stamper Contest.  (You can read more about it HERE).   We receive HUNDREDS of entries, but there can only be one winner per stamp set!  Here are February’s winners!

April Constantine really caught my eye with her use of Out on a Limb.  She decided to emulate an Asian style and create these adorable, clever & EASY lanterns to adorn her project!  (You can see them HERE).  The matching bag holding fortune cookies is SO appropriate!  And I just love the finishing detail of the tassels.  I am excited to see others use this idea inn some alternate colors too!

Barb Schram use Mixed Messages to the best of her abilities by making some beautiful page pebbles.  You can see her entry in our new gallery HERE.  There were a couple things that I loved about her projects.  The page pebbles look like store-bought embellishments.  With the ability to make your own that look this stunning, you can customize color & subject.  I love hints like this that offer versatility!  I also enjoy the layouts that Barb utilized.  They have a nice clean feel without being over done.  Great job, Barb!

Congratulations to both of you!  Please be sure to check out the next post featuring the honorable mentions!

    This is going to sound like a really dumb question – but – why do you show the projects for the honorable mentions but the ones that you actually pick for the winners, you just give a link?

    Anna says:

    A view into the assembly line. Thanks.

    Since you always released only one stamp set per month and there was no competition, at the end of the month, would you mind telling us, which of the 3 sets sold the most?
