Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

It's time for the first StampTV challenge for 2012!! If you have checked out the"All New" section at Gina K Designs you have probably seen the new True Love paper pack. 

As soon as I opened the paper I couldn't wait to use the new gingham!! Such a pretty color combo with the bright pink, lime green, black and white. Of course, not everyone is into bright colors like I am. Some of you may love pastels. So, with it being the first challenge after the busy holiday season, I'll make it easy on you ;)

Today's challenge is to create a card inspired by one of the patterned papers shown above.

Below is the card I created. I used the colors from the plaid paper along with my new Special Occasion Tag set and the Free with Three set You've Got Style. The tag was cut with the Ribbon Tags 2 die. For coordinating colors look for Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Card Stock in Grass Green, Passionate Pink, Black  Onyx and White

I hope you find the time to play.  Please use code STVMONTAMI5 in your tags to be eligible for the fun grab bag of stamps you get if you win!  You can see all the entries HERE.  You have until Sunday, January 8, 2012, 8:00pm cst to upload your creation~


The rules:

Please create and upload a new project for this challenge that can only be entered into this challenge here on StampTV to be eligible for a prize, no combining of Stamp TV challenges.  However, you can combine it with challenges outside of StampTV.  And remember you don't have to use Gina K. Designs stamps, but if you do your name will go into the drawing twice!

Sounds fun, Tami!  There's a lot of inspiration in this paper pack.

LOVE this card Tami!  It is so simple yet really packs a punch - LOVE IT!!

Lovely card, but do I have to use that patterned paper or can I use my own as I don't have that patterned paper?

Here is the card I made using the dots as my inspiration.


Loved this challenge! Made Two cards inspired by the Gingham Paper as well!

There are some very beautiful cards here. cant wait to see the rest of the cards posted!!!

Fun challenge, Tami! HERE is my card.

Here's mine: Hoppy Birthday!

I don't have any of the papers yet so this challenge is out for me.  I am trying to find another challenge, sketch maybe, that I could participate in with Gina K.  I just got my first stamps by Gina K. and am anxious to try them out...any suggestions, friends?

No Pam the challenge is just to be inspired by the papers, you do not need to have the papers or the set, mine has not yet arrived and I don't expect to see it arrive till the end of next week at the earliest, yet I have entered. Take a look in the challenge gallery to get some ideas you can access this here. You don't even have to use Gina K stamps for the challenges, the deal is if you do you get to go into the draw twice. Come and join the fun, you wont regret it :-)

I hope my entree is ok for this challenge.

Thanks, Alex!!  I am inspired by the papers but just didn't have any...soooo I guess I'll try to get a card made! woo hoo!
