The Stretch Your Holiday Style Challenge Winners!

You've been waiting for this moment for days now, and I'm posting later than usual. Sorry 'bout that. But I'm sure you can imagine how a-g-o-n-i-z-i-n-g this is!

Out of an on-the-dot-even 600 projects submitted, 10 remain. And while that is the point, it's so not the point at the very same time.

For yes, it's good to be a winner (it's always good to be a winner), but before I announce our 10 challenge stars, I want to thank those of you who broke out of your comfort zones and tried 1, 2, 3, 4, and maybe even 5 new styles.

Bravo to you!

Many of you submitted mutiple times in each category, and even more of you entered all 5!

That's one big fat WOOT in my book!

And can I just say? Can I tell you how thrilled I am (T-H-R-I-L-L-E-D) at the way these challenges were embraced? It really is a moxie fab world. It really is. In other words, I'm pleased as punch. (Whatever that means. Have you ever really stopped to think what that phrase really means?)

But I seriously digress. And now, my friends, without further ado, I give you the Holiday Cards & More Week Stretch Your Holiday Style Challenge winners:

We began with Clean & Graphic, so let's start there!

While I loved these projects by Smilyn Stef, Kelly Marie, and Jenn C the winners are:

Merry Christmas Card by Winter Sims

Moxie Fab Alert: Everything here is simple and clean. Simple treatment of text. Basic patterns. Lots of white space. I moxie love the color combination, don't you?

Sending Joy Card by Travelingmama

Moxie Fab Alert: It doesn't get much more clean and graphic than this! She's repeated the squares but in different, fashionista patterns using a simple color scheme with a simple, yet stylized treatment of text. Moxie fab!

Next up? Vintage & Shabby. While I loved these projects by Jill Dunn, Lori Roop, and Jen Shears the winning entries are:

December 25th Card by Andi Sexton

Moxie Fab Alert: Vintage can have a tendency to be overdone, but it's just right in this sweet card. I love the simple treatment of the vintage image and how it's offset at an angle. The focal point is clear and she's used understated, vintage-looking papers in the background. Add a big, old-looking ribbon to the top and voila! Instant vintage!

Sending Holiday Joy Card by Cindy Holshouser

Moxie Fab Alert: I have loved this card since the moment I laid eyes on it. What is it about this girl? She looks into your heart, as though beckoning you to come with her into her world. Cindy has done a fabulous job calling attention to her face with the glitter, and the rest of the treatments--the sentiment, the lace, the buttons, etc. balance the card just perfectly.

The middle challenge: Fun & Cute. I loved these projects by Courtney Kelley, Julie Campbell, Vanessa Menhorn, but since I had to choose two winners, I went with:

Ho! Ho! Ho! Card by Heidi Van Laar

Moxie Fab Alert: I nearly laughed out loud when I saw this cute card. It's a good example of Fun & Cute being very close to Clean & Graphic. But with the hat, the pom-poms and the sentiment underneath it just screams cute, cute, cute, cute, CAH-UTE!

Santa's Cookies Card by Windy Robinson

Moxie Fab Alert: This card is just dripping with cute. From the heart background to the cutie-pie gingerbread men I'm thinking I want to gobble this card right up!

It was extremely difficult to choose winners in the Classy & Elegant category. Even though it was our smallest category, the entries were very, very strong. And while I loved these projects by Kelley Eubanks, Anthonette, and Summer Braxton, the winning entries include:

Peace Card by Maile Belles

Moxie Fab Alert: Elegance abounds in this beautifully stamped card. Elegant font, elegant color scheme, just the right amount of bling, and a rich ribbon at the top. Mmm! Delicious!

Peace Card by NinaB

Moxie Fab Alert: I love this card for its richness. The black stripe is a wonderfully surprising addition, while the elegantly treated reindeer makes quite a statement. The color scheme is amazing, and the frilly red at the bottom just caps the whole experience!

And last, but not least, the Stamping Challenge. Kudos to Ramona West, Mary, and Tiffany Johnson (iheartart). The winning entries are:

From Our House Card by Kathie B

Moxie Fab Alert: I just love how Kathie has paired this stamped image with the patchwork look of the background papers. And the sentiment? Absolutely perfect!

Peace on Earth Card by Laura

Moxie Fab Alert: There's nothing I don't love about this tag. I love that she's used the corrugated cardboard as a background, giving it a rustic beginning. The colors are amazing, and I absolutely love that she's done "peace" in that bright white. And that Santa figure with all the little critters?--he has stolen my heart and I'm not sure I'm going to get it back.

Whew! What a fun time we've all had in the Moxie Fab World the last couple of weeks with these challenges, eh friends? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the challenge as well as which one of these projects speaks the most to you and why. It's time to spread the love--and I'll do my part as well. Leave a comment by midnight MDT on Sunday, September 13 and I'll draw two random winners to receive a moxie fab prize!

Absolutely loving this place called the Moxie Fab World,

~Cath

PS Winners, send me your addresses with the challenge you won in the subject line to cedvalson@papercraftsmag.com and I'll set you up with your prizes and your Moxie Fab World Challenge Winner badges!

ScrapMomOf2 said...

CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU ALL!!

I am confused about shabby and vintage being in the same category. Shabby chic is VERY different from vintage in my opinion. I was curious about that combination.

All of the winners are fabulous! Fun challenge!

Jennifer Scull said...

congrats to the very talented winners! :)

I loved these challenges! They were fun, and what was even more fun was seeing all the awesome projects submitted, so much variety and so much inspiration!

cards4ever said...

Congrats ladies. Beautiful cards.

Lene said...

I adore that very last entry, the tag with the peace-lovin' Santa! It's so cuuute!

MsOktober said...

Congrats to all the winners!

I loved the idea of all the challenges. I would have loved to to make something for all of them but I didn't have the time. What I really like is the clear guidelines on what the project should be like and examples. Then we are free to create. It makes you think, maybe work with a style you have never tried, use supplies you've had sitting around. It just good to outside your usual style and try new things. That's what these challenges do. I hope they continue :)

Michelle (mla1111) said...

Congrats to the winners...tehse are all fabulous. I am really drawn to the Merry Christmas Card by Winter Sims & Santa's Cookies Card by Windy Robinson...they clean & simple then the cute... so fun!

Anonymous said...

Well... I don't alway get a chance to sit down and browse all my "crafting blogs" that I have bookmarked but boy am I glad I made time today!!! How inspiring! to see So many different cards and ideas!!! Would LOVE to see a file of all your entries, just more "idea dust" for the rest of us! Thank you for the inspiring morning! Jen Ferguson

Tanya Rudd said...

I have to say the challenges were fun, I love the tag with the corrugated cardboard. It really stands out. Well done!

Charity said...

What beautiful cards!

butlersabroad said...

Hard to choose just one as they're all outstanding.... but I love the very first card by Winter Sims, it's so simple yet so striking. A close second would be the Peace card.

Anonymous said...

I really love that last one - the Peace on Earth - with the santa and the corrugated cardboard. Very unique and I like that look a lot. Congrats to all of the winners!

Winter said...

WOW! This has been the best challenge ever, not just because my card was choosen, (Thanks so much by the way), but I think it really helps everyone of us grow as crafters! I would love for you to do these again! :) Thanks again!

Jessica said...

This challenge was lots of fun! I am happy I was able to participate in all 5 of them! While I felt like I was really coming out of my "comfort box", it was inspiring to be challenge by each subject challenge! Thanks so much for doing this, Cath! I would love to have a chance at something like this again!

My favorites were by Winter Sims & Maile Belles. They are two very sweet ladies! As always I love Maile's simple, clean and elegant style, she did this challenge so beautifully! Winter's card is so cute and clean, and love the light green and brown she chose for it. I have gotten to know Maile through visiting each other's blogs and her and I have really seemed to click. I am blessed to meet friends through something we all have the same passion for! Winter is always a sweetie, I know her a little through the different challenges we've entered and blog comments back and forth.
Everyone did such a great job with these challenges! Congratulations to them all!!!

AHadley said...

I am surprised that no non-card projects won except for the tag :(

Wendy Todd said...

Congratulations to all of the very worthy winners! I loved this challenge. Christmas Cards were the reason I began cardmaking 7 years ago, so the Christmas theme is my "first love". I absolutely adored the simple card by Maile Belles -so much so that I think I'll buy that PTI set with my next order!

Jarie said...

Beautiful cards. There were two cards that really spoke to me and that was the one by TravelingMama -
the Clean & Simple using the different blocks in red and black.
The other one I liked was the Classy & Elegant that had peace stamped on it with the snowflakes.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Janet

Travelingmama's Sending Joy card really spoke to me because I love animal print in small doses here and there, and I never would have thought to use it on a holiday card! Bravo for thinking outside the box!...scraplifting that idea in some form or fashion. Thanks to all for the inspiration!
