PLEASE..if you pin these from my blog, give credit to the designer. I have linked to their blogs.
Here is my top 12 cards of 2012 in NO particular order. It was SO SO hard to narrow them down. I could have listed about 20 more.
Mish Mash-Michelle Wooderson
Michelle has a country way of putting cards together that are embellished, but not crowded. She uses the latest trends in technique and manufacturer to design cards you want to buy and receive that anyone would appreciate.
Just Made From Paper-Aga
This card needs to be in a museum. It is a masterpiece work of art. BOLD and FEMININE all rolled up in one.
The Creation of Creativity-Angeline Yong
Our Change of Art-Jennifer Rzasa
Crazy. Colorful. Awesome.
Ribbon Girls-JJ Bolton
Never have I seen anyone take die cuts and create something so cool. She, in my opinion, invented a new genre of card making. The die cut was brought into focus single handedly thanks to her.
This is how design and embellishments working together in harmony looks like.
Doublestick Heaven-Laura Bassen
There are so many ways to make a mistake on this card, yet this one has not a single one. Its beautiful.
My Paper Secret-Cristina Kowalczyk
This card has brilliant written all over it. Trying to pick a favorite for Cristina was the hardest of the group because there was no single standout card, all her cards were equally stunning in design and execution.
Simply Stamped-Maile Belles
This card was the one that made me realize what I had been missing in Maile Belles. Haven't missed a post since. I get it now. I get it.
Lime Doodle-Debby Hughes
I might be her biggest fan. She makes me buy things. That is what a great designer does. SOLD on her and her work.
Random Acts of Creativity-Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)
At Danbury Lane-Sophia Miller
My daughter Sophia makes cards too. She has an amazing style already...at age 9. I am her biggest fan.
