I am so thrilled to be asked to host the Inspiration Challenge
for the next three months. This is a NEW challenge category now on STV.
The picture for this challenge is from the NorthStyle catalog.
The colors used from this photo are Fresh Asparagus, Ballet Blue, and Bashful Blue
Before I get started explaining how to join in on the fun, I want to thank a couple of people who have contributed to this post: Pam (StampinPam) for creating the challenge picture and Geri for being my guest hostess.
Color and the snowflakes were my inspiration from this picture. One of the snowmen from Winter Friends was used to create my card. The greeting is from Gina's Holiday Greetings. The snowman’s scarf and sweater were paper pieced. I embossed some tiny snowflakes on the sweater.
Geri’s beautiful card is also from the Winter Friends stamp set. We did not discuss which stamp set I had used, so this is a coincidence. Even though we used the same set, our cards are very different.
Now it’s your turn! Please upload your card to the StampTV gallery using the key word stvicss01.
Use this photo as a springboard helping you draw your own inspiration as you design your project. Be sure to include in your card information why it qualifies for this challenge; for instance, the colors, the size, the shape, the design element, etc. You do not need to use Gina K stamps to participate, although we’d love it if you do. A little perk,
if you use Gina K stamps in your entry, your name will be added to the drawing twice. Remember you can only enter the card you create for just one challenge. Using one card for multiple challenges is no longer permitted.
You have until next Thursday at 8pm CST to upload your entry. One winner will be selected in a random drawing and will win a GinaK Designs stamp set of their choice, valued up to $24.95.
Here is the gallery link to all cards entered with the stvicss01
Have fun creating. I’m anxious to see what inspired you from this photo.
