Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Before I share my first sketch challenge I want to take a moment to give a big shout out to Vicki Dutcher who did a fabulous job coming up with all the fun sketches each week as well as the amazing projects that she shared with us.  You still have another two days to try out her last sketch challenge posted here.


I am so excited to be your Sketch Challenge Hostess for the next three months. I love working with sketches. They make the card making process a little easier when trying to figure out where to place everything.


Here is the sketch for this week...



And here is the card I made using the sketch...



Stamps: Stars

Paper: Pure Luxury Sweet Mango & Smoky Slate, Basic Grey Sugar Rush

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

and Lots of Rhinestone Bling!!


I can't wait to see what you make with the sketch. Please don't forget the tag, stvsketchms1, and please stop back and share a link here so we can all stop by and check it out.  Here is a link to all of the entries for the sketch challenge this ...



And here are the details to enter the challenge for a chance to win free stamps.


Please upload your creation to the STV gallery, using the tag stvsketchms1. You do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did! In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, that your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE!


You are welcome to participate in as many challenges as you like here on Stamp TV, but remember you may only enter the card you create for this challenge once and not for any other challenge on Stamp TV.  Using one card for multiple challenges is no longer permitted.  However, you may enter more than once.


Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before.

You have until next Monday, June 7, at 8am CST, to upload your sample. One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!
