Monday morning - time for a new challenge! Thanks to Lori for letting me try my hand at hosting one.
I'm in the process of organizing my stamp room (aka the basement) and when I was looking at all of the stamps I've collected through the years I was feeling sorry for the stamps I've never used once. So, my challenge to you is this:
Find a stamp in your collection that you have never gotten inky, and then ink it up with your favorite color.
As you can probably guess, orange happens to be my favorite color. I ended up making a monochromatic orange card in the process (but you don't have to). The various designs from the free Sunlit Summer digital paper pack (get it here on StampTV's freebies page) were perfect for creating a sunray background. Here's my card:
Please create and upload a new project for this challenge. You may not link a previous card/project. There is no combining of Stamp TV challenges allowed to be eligible to win a prize. However, you can combine it with challenges outside of Stamp TV. And remember you don't have to use Gina K. Designs stamps, but if you do your name will go into the drawing twice!
The deadline for this challenge is Sunday April 22nd at 8:00 pm CT. One of the mods will pick a winner and post in the Big News section on Stamp TV.
Don't forget to tag your picture with the keyword STV12MON13 for this challenge.

Now go find a never-before-used stamp and get it inky, finally!
Ooh I can do this!! Thanks, and your card is lovely!!
What a gorgeous card! Hmm, I think it would have taken some looking to find an unused stamp, but hey, I went to a scrapbooking convention this weekend and got some new stamps, so I can use one of those. I'll have to see if I can find a Gina K one I haven't used, but that will take a LOT of looking.
Cool challenge Vera - hope to play along later! :)
what a gorgeous creation Vera! like a warm hug, it rocks ! Thanks so much for hosting too!
What a great challenge! I just got some new GKD stamps so I can use them. YIPPEE!
Beautiful card! Love the DP!
GREAT Challenge..... we all have some of those I am certain...now to only just decide which one! :)
This sounds like fun!!! Your card is beautiful. Awesome Idea!!!
Great idea, Vera! Congratulations on hosting! Cardmaking has helped me get to like the color orange a lot more than before. And your challenge sounds so easy to work with - great idea and super, CAS card!
Great challenge, Vera, love your card and thanks for hosting. I chose a stamp from Little Critters illustrated by Theresa. Although I used other stamps in this set this is the first time the turtle, the fern and the greeting have seen ink. As for my favorite colors, since I love color, I decided upon green and neutrals because it's hard to choose one favorite. Hope you like my card. Thanks for looking.
Vera, its a lovely card. Clever sun ray effect. The different shades of orange, reminds me of an ice cream sherbet. Great, now I'm hungry. JK, I think...LOL Such a beauty!
Oh, I know I have unused stamps...but a favorite color is hard to pick as I have more than one favorite. Maybe I need to do a rainbow one. LOL I will see what tomorrow brings and hope I can get something stamped for this challenge too.
