We’re more than halfway through March, and we think it’s fair to say you all are having lots of fun creating Spring & Easter cards with us! The entries for the first half of the monthly contest have been fantastic - you can view them all HERE. And now it’s time to announce our first batch of winners for the month… (YAY!!)
We were completely wowed by the winner of our Digital category, Virginia L! She printed out the birdcage from our digital kit three times and folded it to open on the front of her card. As if that’s not clever enough, she used the wing of a little butterfly to hold the cage closed. Well done!
DchsofAbby is our Fresh Face for the first half of March! Not only is her card completely adorable, and her woven Easter basket completely fabulous, but just typing her username makes us feel like there’s royalty among us! Love it!
And now on to our Fab Five, presented in no particular order. Just like our Digital and Fresh Face winners, every member of the Fab Five will receive a $50 Hero Arts shopping spree!
Our second fabulous card was created by stampstudio1 (Susan). The soft colors of blue and light brown are beautifully mixed, offering a peaceful look at the upcoming spring season. And Susan had a smart idea - she stamped the flower images right over the flowers on her patterned paper - so clever!
Our Tall Birdhouse completely shines on this beautiful creation from rhea1967. Her coloring is gorgeous, and we love that she wasn’t afraid to pair it with those rather bold patterned papers. They’re not necessarily the colors you think of for spring, but it certainly gives the feel of warmth and sunshine on a spring day!
The next card from Fiona Y is so lovely with it’s lace, butterflies and happy colors! Her image panel is absolutely stunning.
And last but not least, another beauty from maropeusa. Her design is crisp and clean, and her use of color is perfection.
Congratulations to all the winners!! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and phone number, and also include your list of $50 worth of product! You can look through our store HERE to create your list. Please include “March2010A Winner” in the subject line.
