An the Winner is……

Congratulations go to Christine of Belleville, ON with her wonderful “Shaker Card” Card147.jpgentry in our Christmas Card contest.

I love this card…. shades of snowglobes…. it’s like looking outside and watching it snow. A scan does not do this card justice when you can move it a little and the driveway gets filled in again. With another tilt of the card and it looks like it’s “whiteout” conditions…..

Christine has used an old time favourite stamp of ours that was released in Sept/04 (yes we keep our stamps in production and this one is still available) She stamped with stamp J303 Winter House on a oval window card, coloured it in to suit her taste and sealed it with a generous supply pf small beads.  Then embellished the cover with larger sparkles and added a couple to die cut evergreen tree to give it a wonderful wonderland appeal.  Well done Christine and the winner of our Christmas Card Contest.

Winter Greetings

Card146Winter Greetings from all the gang here at Frog’s Whiskers Ink. Christmas has settled down, New Years has passed and now we snuggle in for a nice relaxing winter and enjoy the great outdoors ……… wait a minute…. it’s FREEZING outside.

The best way to see the great outdoors in weather like this, is from the inside of your house looking out the window.  Even better if that window is in your craftroom.

Here’s hoping you are prepared for the rest of the winter months by having enough stock for all your projects …… if not were not far away by phone, email, stopping in or shopping online

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.

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
