Winners for Challenge #241 Speedy Scraps & a New Look

 We had a lot of feisty, scrappy entries this time - duking it out for the fastest times and the most gorgeous creations! I feel like this was unlike most of our Speed Stamping Challenges, since having the pick of our scrap bins lead to some pretty sophisticated cards! But, oh, was it ever fun and satisfying to be able to use those pieces and, in such a short time, create masterpieces! There were many vying for the top spots, but a couple of clear winners emerged:

Our Top Pick is: Shawna - The Grand Stampede

top pick winner 241

Shawna's wood-themed card is really clever. The Design Team liked the way she matched the die cut sentiment from her scrap bin with the wood designer paper in the background and matched it with the stenciled design in neutral tones. To add interest, she sliced off a narrow strip and added it just below with a narrow border and set the stenciled paper on an angle! Shawna's project reflects creativity and craftsmanship at it's best!

Our Featured Artist is: Malina G.

featured artist winner 241

Malina's card is one of those sophisticated cards that puts this Speed Challenge over the top! Her beautifully coloured flower and stencilled background were done within the time limit! The sentiment is from her scrap bin! This clean and simple card would be amazing under non-timed circumstances, but is miraculous in under ten minutes! Just beautiful in layout, execution and design, Malina! Wow!
