Fall Fairs Card Contest

WinnerCongratulations go to Christine of Belleville, ON with her wonderful flower entry at the Fair, for our Fall Fair Card contest

Card144

 

 

Christine used a variety of die cuts along with the Oak Branch stamp H685 and the Sunflower Stamps from Stamp Set M10022 (Set of 4 flower heads)

There is a reason why we like to have you send us your Cards because a scanned picture does not do this Card justice. The 3D effects is hard to capture but it makes the flowers seem real. In fact you can practicality smell the wonderful aroma of the flowers and greenery. This Card deserves a First Place Red Ribbon.

Send us your card creation for our monthly card contests. The winner gets a $20.00 store/show/online credit. Not every fancy card wins, not every dazzling card wins…. the Card that wins is the one that feels right for the occasion. Please note that your Card…. must incorporate one or more of Frog’s Whiskers Ink or Rosewood stamps or products in the design of the card.

In our next Card Challenge…..  for Oct …. Lets take a look at Halloween, a spooky event for all big and little Trick or Treaters.  It doesn’t matter if it is a “Boo!” or a “It’s the Great Pumpkin” one, it must express the essence of the Card Contest theme

Looking Forward to seeing Your Cards

Fall is coming

Card142I never thought I would say this but….
                         Where is Fall?
Where are the red, yellow and orange colours we look forward to, that only happen at this time of year. I have my pumpkin, I have plenty of spiders (complete with spider webs) …. but we are missing the scenic view out the window. The only colours we have are the ones in the new Cards by Rose-Marie. She taught these two cards at Crop-a-While in Ottawa this past week and the gang loved them. Card143
