Ahhh! The old speed stamping challenge! Only for the strong of heart apparently! The brave, the daring, the crafter looking for a new way to challenge themself! Whatever! It's fun getting your adrenaline pumping - like watching a thriller movie, right?? Right??? Anyway, we had a few brave souls take on the challenge and we'd love to see a few more give it a try! What the heck? What do you have to lose? It's only one card and you might surprise yourself with what you can do in 10 minutes!
Now on to our winners for this challenge! Because we had only a few entries, we will not be awarding Honorable Mentions this time.
Our first Top Pick is: Yvon at Stempidoe
Yvon says she usually takes one or two hours to create a card, but she tried out our speed stamping challenge and completed this beauty in 9 minutes and 58 seconds! That wildflower creates a striking focal point against the radiating orange rays, making an eye-catching display. The Design Team loved the fussy cut sentiment, which really set off the whole thing!
Our second Top Pick is: Jolanda Johnstone
Jolanda has speed stamping down to a fine art. If you want advice on how to do it, go to her blog. Her adorable elephant card with the great sentiment for a belated birthday was completed in 7 minutes and 41 seconds - the record for this challenge! We loved the colour choices and the way the balloon echoed the background paper. The sentiment she chose was so perfect and flawlessly embossed on the grey cardstock!
Our Featured Artist is: dj from Sendable Sentiments
The Design Team love dj's hack of keeping a stamped and cut mask in the stamp set case to be reused the next time you need it. It will save you from having to repeat that time consuming step again. They also loved the beautiful design of dj's card, with the black and white light house against the blue sky and the green grasses. It was a beautiful comparison of man-made versus nature and stood out so well against the beautifully blended sky. Congratulations, dj.
Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everyone who played along! Come back and join us tomorrow morning for our next challenge, a sketch challenge. Our winners today can pick up their badges on this page and display them with pride on their blogs or sites.
