Stampin' contest

Last month at club, I gave the 6 members a challenge to complete by this month's meeting.  Each person got a quarter sheet of the same Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper, a button and a piece of ribbon from the Ribbon and Button Pack.  All of these items are free items with Sale A Bration.  I told them they could make whatever they wanted with the supplies.

We had four entires and the ladies voted on a winner.  It was very interesting to see what they came up with when they all started out with the same supplies.
Annette's cupcake holder

Nancy's Change of Address Card

Cathy's Pinwheel Bear

Barb's True Friend Card

The cupcake holder was a lot cuter with the cupcake in it.  But our evil cat Sunshine ate the cupcake while it was in a plastic bag.  I left the room for a minute and when I came back he was in the plastic bag with the cupcake licking the frosting off.  Bad kitty.

Which one of these cards would you have picked as the winner?   You can leave a comment with your vote and I will award the winner with a pack of Silver Glimmer Paper. One vote per person please!

  2. Wow! You have talented customers! I love them all. I've never seen a cupcake holder like that one - very creative! The bear card stole my heart - she's adorable! Hadn't thought to use the dress cut-out for a change of address. I love the doily cut-out on the True Friend card. Hard to choose a winner, but I'd have to go with the bear pinwheel card as I think she is just soo sweet!

  10. Wow, it's hard to pick a favorite because they are all so clever! I agree with Lydia that they all deserve glimmer paper. But if I have to pick a winner, I think I have to go with the Change of A-dress card. I just thought that was so creative.

  11. Really great entries! It's hard to choose but I really like the True Friend card! The doily cut from the DSP looks great and the 2 little pearls on the button are a nice touch!

    Well done for all your ladies! Thanks for sharing!

  17. What a fabulous job everyone did! All the cards are absolutely gorgeous! It certainly is tough to pick just one! My vote goes to Annette's cupcake holder. Simply because it's a card AND it's a gift! Love it! Thanks for sharing!

  19. All very pretty but I have to vote for Nancy's change of address card. I just ordered that die 5 minutes ago - so I may be biased! Well done to all your team. X

  21. oh my, what a hard choice! I loved each entry but am going to have to go with the change of ad"dress" card from Nancy! The cupcake holder is also adorable but I could only vote once so.....had to go with Nancy. Hope you don't mind but I "re-blogged" your contest entry so maybe some of my regular blog followers will help you decide.

  28. I love the clean and simple layout and the color combo of Barb's True Friend card, so that one gets my vote. But all the creations are wonderful. What talented stampers!

  29. Oh my goodness, these are fantastic! Love this challenge and love what they made! If forced to choose, I'd go with the cupcake holder but I really don't want to choose. They are all amazing in their own way!

  30. All wonderful!!! But I am going to go with the cupcake holder!! Love the colors.

  31. Love the idea of a challenge! Everyone is great, partial to the build a bear, but I think I will have to go with the cupcake holder (even though it is minus the cupcake )

  32. What a hard choice! They are all amazing.

    I love the mink stole with the dress and the bear and pinwheel is so creative, but my favorite is the cupcake holder. It all matches perfectly!

  33. great cards and projects! my fav is the cupcake holder!

    ReplyDelete
  34. They are all fabulous, but my fave is the dress. :)

  35. They all are great. I do think the cupcake holder is the most out of the box one, the bear is adorable, the doily adds interest and the double embossing is a cool touch. Cupcake holder gets my vote, if I must chose.

  36. Okay. WOW!!! Barbara - you have some wickedly talented stampers. Waving :::: hello :::: to all of them. I am the crazy lady in Minnesota who sends Barbara cards every now and again. I am going to pretend this is project runway... I will call it paper runway.
    Stamper #1 Annette - your design shows great composition and symmetry. It is crisp and elegant.
    Stamper #2 Nancy - she is one punny gal. *wink* Looking beyond her humor I see a lovely use of texture and the edge of the dress brings in movement.
    Stamper #3 Cathy - I would describe your project as whimsical. That bear is certainly stylish and who doesn't love a pinwheel!
    Stamper #4 Barb - Your design is classic and the recipient would certainly be honored with the reference of "true friend".

    Ladies . . . you all are winners in my book. (drumroll please) Without further ado . . . I put the tiara on Annette. Ladies, a cupcake wins EVERYTIME with me. :)

    Seriously . . . well done! You must have a wonderful teacher!!!

  37. The cupcake card - I love anything and everything involving cupcakes.

  38. Great job to all of you ladies! I'm partial to the change of address card myself.

  39. Pool Party is one of my fav colors so Barb's True Friend card gets my vote but they are all lovely and I hate having to pick one over the other.

    ReplyDelete
  40. While each project had something I really liked, I have to go with the cupcake holder for my vote! Your stampers all did a great job with your challenge!

  42. They are all so wonderful, choosing is so hard. Even as I type this I don't know who's to choose. I think I'm going to go with the Build a Bear Card. I was just so hard to choose, you are all very talented.
