Wow! We were so excited to see how Altenew fans would interpret this contest, and you all did not disappoint! We were impressed by the response to our first Pair-A-Flower photography contest, and we can't wait to show you the results of this competition.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this challenge. It was definitely difficult to choose our favorites, and your creativity doesn't make it any easier!
Without further ado, here are the contest winners. First up are our top three winners who simply astounded us with their gorgeous projects.
Our first place winner who will receive a $100 Altenew gift card is Hannelie.
Hannelie blew us away by creating an exact replica of her favorite shirt in card form! We love what she did with our Botanical Garden Stamp Set and are already feeling inspired to take our own stamps out to do the same. If you would like to see a picture of Hannelie wearing the same featured shirt, check out her blog post entry.
Our third place winner who will receive a $50 Altenew gift card is Irene.
We can't keep our eyes off this stunning card and bouquet pairing! We love all the special little touches Irene added to create this work of art. Can you spot the florals from Garden Treasure, Golden Garden, and Beautiful Day Stamp Sets in her card?
Next, 2 winners will each receive an Ultimate Ink Blending Tool Bundle ($45.57 value):
Karen's interpretation of this beautiful coneflower with our Build-A-Flower: Coneflower Layering Stamp & Die Set caught our eye.
Next, 3 winners will each receive a pack of Instant Dimension Foam Tape ($30.99 value):
Next up is this beautiful floral card by Helen inspired by her personal azalea bush. We love how she created this DIY look with our Springtime Azalea Stamp Set and Beautiful Bergenia 3D Embossing Folder.
This delightful pairing by Sarah caught our eye. We love the unique techniques she used with our Build-A-Flower: Flourishing Zinnia Layering Stamp & Die Set!
Hibiscus Dew Drops
We absolutely love the effect of the dew drops on this replicated card featuring our Hibiscus Garden 3D Die Set!
Wait, that's not all!
