EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:
Colleen F. created a classic black & orange creation that uses the popular Tiny Treats: Halloween stamp set. I loved how she paired this up with the Background Basics: Wrought Iron image at the bottom of the card. Such a great touch!
Colleen F. also made a stunning masterpiece using the Cover Plate: Hexagon die with a variety of patterned papers. The mix of patterns she chose to use is just awesome and SO eye-catching!
Angela Person used the new Shape Up Series: Pumpkin die along with the sections and several Orange Zest Pattern Pack papers to create a festive card base. I love her sentiment placement and the bookprint leaves.
Amy Kolling pulled out a golden oldie, the original Spooky Sweets stamp set, to create this clean & simple card. I love how she kept her card base white so that the colors of the jack-o-lantern just pop from the page.
imkristi2 used A Little Argyle to ground her focal point. I love how the border runs vertically and that she only filled a potion of the cover with the pattern. It adds so much more interest to the project!
Luanne Ford created this show-stopper with Friendship Jar and the Autumn Fillers. Her coloring skills paired with the incredible mixed pattern paper selections make this card nothing less than spectacular.
Kirsty Vittetoe made a gift bag to hold spooky sweets for someone special using the Front & Center #1 die. I really like the way she added a string and birds across the top using Love Birds, totally an untraditional use of this set!
Helen F. put together a festive & fun card using a variety of supplies. I think it was very clever the way she colored some of the windows on the houses yellow to give the illusion they are glowing.
Char definitely added amazing dimesnion and detail to her project with all of the fun layering she incorporated. Mr. Bones himself is holding the sentiment strip and I love how she added a die-cut Spider Wed Trio behind the pattern paper strip to act as a mat of sorts. SO fabulous!
Valerie Guidnard made this Halloween card using the new Happy Haunting set. So cool the way she went a bit untraditional and made her little ghostie orange. I also really got a lot of inspiration from her card layoust and the way she added the sentiment to her project.
We apologize for the delay in the winners announcement. Thank you for your patience and congratulations to each of the selected finalists! Please send a note off to customer service containing the email address you would like your $10 Papertrey gift certificate sent to.
