tattered floral winners…

wow bloggers…what an amazing turn out for the tattered floral challenge!  i can’t believe there were over 700 submissions to the challenge so i just want to start off by saying thank you all for being part of it.  to be honest, the whole idea behind this was to really inspire you to just take time to create something…whatever it was…using the same “ingredient” so to speak (i guess this was iron chef crafting style).  to see how many of you decided to actually take me up on this challenge blows me away, and i really hope that simply by taking part was really worth it to you and somehow inspired your creativity.  i know that most of you have checked out the submissions and clicked on the links to see the other amazing ideas shared by the participants – after all, that was the whole purpose behind the challenge.  i’ve said it many times before, the most important thing to me, and by far the most rewarding, is to see how all of you take the ideas and make them your own.  i thank you again for being part of this challenge, whether you submitted a project, or simply for cheering along with your comments on the blog, they most certainly did not go unnoticed.  now although it might seem cliche, you are all winners in my book – so bravo to you…

that being said we do have 5 winners to announce for the “tattered floral challenge” who will each receive a tim holtz prize package filled with $175 of creative goodness.  it was fun looking at your submissions you’ve been posting throughout the past month and certainly our challenge was choosing our favorites, but after much deliberation, we narrowed it down to our top 5.  so if you see your name and project listed, congrats to you for being one of our tattered floral winners – please email mario@timholtz.com to claim your prize package.

thanks again everyone…t!m


lisa nazario-gregory: i would have to say that we were blow away by the talents this crafter had for taking the tattered floral die and making some amazing flower variations.  the best part is she shares her tutorials for making many of these right on her blog.  it was really wonderful to see all of the different styles and colors of flowers made by a single die.  well done lisa…


linda kobosky: the idea of taking flowers to adorn projects with was definitely the inspiration for this project.  we loved the birdhouse decorated with a variety of tattered floral flowers, but it was the versatility of this die used to create architectural features on her birdhouse like the shingles for the rooftop that had us loving this project.  very clever linda…


angelica: now this is one we definitely wanted to see in person.  to think that these are all created using the tattered floral die, and even more amazing white copy paper?  something about the classic look of the white bouquet of flowers is rather stunning don’t you think?  there are tutorials on many of these flowers too on her blog.  simplicity at it’s finest angelica…


tamera: this was one of those projects that made us smile because of the innovative materials used to create it.  i mean who would have possibly looked at the pile of supplies she shows on her blog, and then watch as she turns them into very clever and rustic tattered florals.  i just thought it was very different, and unique.  clever ideas tamera…


jennifer lynn newcomb: when you think over the top, this one definitely fits the bill.  can you imagine covering a wall in your house with tattered florals?  well this crafter did, and we’re so happy she did.  this entry was submitted through flickr so there is no blog to link to unfortunately to see the process, but if you click the link there are more pictures of the finished wall.  awesome work jennifer…

    A grandiose action ended today, and I didn’t want to swap with tim and mario to make a selection. Well done! And all this creativ subscriber gave so much inspiration to us. Complements to all of them.
    I love the flowers from winner Lisa, but the white bouquet of flowers from winner Angelica is realy stunning. I already looked up to her work last weeks. I also admired Tamera’s handiwork before stopping the challenge. Especially because of the idea with the car wheels in center of flowers.
    I was a part of this challenge too, and I’ve had much fun (and work too until late after midnight to make hundred of flowers)
    I would be happy about an action replay.
    Congratulations to all the winners!!!
    Greatings to all over the world from Germany.

I enjoyed watching this incredible journey of many admirers from near & afar. & I would have to agree that doing Deco for an entire wall is pretty awesome! So many lovely ideas. Thank you so very much for this.
