Stamping Royalty Editor: Brynn Lillywhite

The Paper Crafts team is proud to present the winners of our 2009 Stamping Royalty contest. Each year since 2004, we’ve inducted the crème de la crème of stampers into a posh society known as Stamping Royalty. This year, we received hundreds of stamped card entries from readers who hoped to wear the crown. The cards were judged in five categories: build a scene, stamp kissing, creating patterned paper with stamps, adding color with markers, and adding color with dye ink spray. The winners each received a prize package of card making and stamping supplies worth over $200. Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to the new royalty! We hope you’ll enjoy their beautifully stamped cards and get inspired to enter our royal contest next year.
