It’s time to share the first round of winners from the January contest - and let us just say, we loved all of your wonderful creations! They made our hearts happy! Looking through them all was like getting a big, inky hug! Shall I go on? Ok, how about we just move on to the winners…
First up is our Fresh Face winner, seriayucards (Normah)! Normah shared several wonderful creations this month (check them out in her photostream!), but this one really stood out with it’s unique blue monochromatic color scheme. Using the hot air balloon from Past Times makes this a fantastic masculine Valentine!
Momi0314 also had a couple of wonderful entries this month, but we especially loved this adorable mug of happiness. It features our Cozy Treats digikit, making it our Digital winner this time around! We also love how she combined the digital element with traditional stamps, including the Newspaper Eiffel Tower background stamp.
And now onto our Fab Five, five of our favorite projects, presented in no particular order. Just like our Fresh Face and Digital winners, every member of the Fab Five will receive a $50 Hero Arts shopping spree.
Agata Dag played along with the color challenge, and would you just look at this adorable hot air balloon she created!? We love the dimension of this card, and love even more the Classic Fabric Design pattern on the balloon!
Next up is Pretty Papers, who used two of the Three People to create a super sweet Valentine! Sometimes the smallest touches make cards even more special - here it’s the sweet little gem on the heart!
How about a really fun idea that you’re going to want to run to your desk and try for yourself?? That’s how we feel about this super fun use of twine by lalo’s LALA-land! Stamping the message on an arrow and tucking it into the heart is just genius!
And last but not least, this gorgeous, clean collage design from michellecharity. Every element is laid out perfectly! Michelle says she’s infatuated with our new Untitled Heart set - well we are infatuated with her beautiful card!
Congratulations winners! Please contact us at email@example.com with your address and phone number, and also include your list of $50 worth of product by Thursday, January 26th. You can look through our online store to create your list. Please include “January2012A Winner” in the subject line. There are also blog blinkies available for all the winners - if you’d like one, please let us know in your email and we’ll send it along as well!
I have to tell you - my six year old was looking over my shoulder as I was going through all of the entries so far this month. He kept saying “Oh! I love that one!” and “That one is really pretty!” and “That one should win, mom!”. So it’s really too bad he doesn’t pick the winners - you ALL would have won!!
Remember this month’s contest is still in full swing! Share the love and get your card uploaded to the Hero Arts Flickr pool by next Thursday, January 26th at 11:59pm PST. Remember to tag them with “January2012B”. Check out all of the details on our contest page. We cannot wait to see what you make!
We’ll be back tomorrow with more inspiration from Julie Ebersole! See you then!
