Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

For those of you who watch Project Runway, you may know Nina Garcia as a judge on the show. She is also the Fashion Director for Marie Clare Magazine- a high fashion periodical. Nina Garcia wrote the book, Little Black Book of Style.

 

Here is the product description of this book from Amazon.com.

Every time you dress, you assert your identity. With style, you tell the world your story. In that way, style affords you opportunities to think about your appearance as a quality of your creative character. The Little Black Book of Style helps you to explore your own fashion voice—the piece of you that joyously revels in the glamorous experience of creating your best self. From cultivating good taste to guarding against definite fashion faux pas, Nina Garcia offers readers the ultimate guide to follow when it comes to dressing their best. Including tips on how and when to wear an outfit, occasion-appropriate wear, advice on how to combine colors and textures, and inspiration on how to achieve your own signature look, you learn how to experiment, storyboard, archive, and play. Timeless and universal, this book seeks to remind women that eternal style is internal style, and that everyone has what it takes to discover themselves through the colorful palette that is fashion.

 

 

So what about your papercrafting style? Are you clean and simple, or layered and all blinged out?

 

This week's challenge is to create a project that best fits your style and explain your papercrafting style in your gallery post.

 

Here is my project for this week's Inspiration Challenge:

 

 

And my description of my card-making style is:

 "Although I love to explore many different styles from clean and simple to layered and blinged out, the style I go back to over and over again is what I call clean and shabby. I love a clean and simple color palette, but then I love to add some shabby ribbon and scalloped edges to make even an ultra clean black and white project more feminine."

 

Please create and upload a new project for this challenge and it can only be entered into this challenge here on StampTV to be eligible for a prize. However, you can use it for challenges outside of StampTV. If you use Gina K. Designs stamps, your name will go into the pot twice.

Please have your project uploaded to the gallery here at StampTV using keyword INSPIRE11 by 8:00 PM central time, Tuesday night.

Wednesday, we will announce a randomly chosen winner from all of the entries who will win any Gina K. Designs stamp set valued up to $24.95.

Use keyword INSPIRE11

Best of luck!
