Janice, known as Smitty2004 on Splitcoaststampers, is the winner of the $50 gift certificate for Stampin UP merchandise! Janice, please send Redapron of Splitcoast a private message and you can work out the arrangements for your order!! Janice's beautiful card is a 4 and 1/4" square. Janice used Versamark to ink up SU's Paisley background and then embossed it with Black Ranger Fine Detail Embossing Powder. She also used SU's Delight in Life set to make the flowers. The center of the flower is raised on a dimensional. Other supplies used: SU Whisper White cardstock, Bazill Black cardstock, Black Staz On ink, White SU grosgrain ribbon, Sakura Black Jelly Roll pen, SU Ticket Corner Punch. Janice made the letters with Quikcutz and then dotted them with the Jelly Roll Black pen. Everything about this card works -- the details, original design, craftsmanship and beauty. I think it is definitely Black and White and worth $50!!! Thank you Janice! The second prize goes to Tracy Durcan, whose card is very different than most. I refuse to use the term "simple" to describe one layer cards. They are, in my most humble of opinions, extraordinarily difficult to pull off well. And, since this is my blog, my opinion rules!! Tracy used the following materials in her card: Whisper White cardstock, Black Staz On, SU!'s Best Bar Codes, Rhonna Farrer's Swirls, SU! Hodgepodge Hardware, SU! Black Ribbon, Paper Piercing Tool, Template, Foam Mat, Two Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter by SU! Tracy, please send me a private message at Splitcoast (Joan B) with your address so that I can get your box of goodies sent to you. Included in your box will be this card, donated by Cindy Mothermay (Mothermark on SCS): Thanks, Cindy! This card is amazing in person -- full of dimension and details! Isn't Cindy nice for doing this??? If you'd like to see the rest of the entries, I created a separate blog just for that purpose. You can find them at BlackWhiteContest ! I looked at every entry, regardless of whether it was emailed to me or posted on this blog. I hope that I managed to get all of the entries posted on the other blog -- if I omitted yours, it was an honest mistake and please leave a message and I will correct my error. I tried my best to ignore the manner in which the card was photographed, as that will often make a huge difference in a first impression. When you see the entries, I'm sure you will agree that selecting winners was not an easy task. Unbelievable talent. Thanks for taking the time to enter. You guys are the best!!! This contest was a very interesting experience. Enough said!!
