Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hello, Hello, Hello wonderful STV Members!!!  Just posting some information on tagging..........some you'll already know perhaps and some are some new changes.

The tags themselves will be typed the same, all in one "smooshed together" word.  LOL  (ie: gkd
or autumnsplendor).

Just use the first names of the illustrators of each stamp set you use, even if it's just a sentiment
from one of the sets.  (ie: gina)

 

If you use any image or sentiment from any of the Stamp TV Kits then you can also add this tag...... stvkit.

We also will use tags for the GKD exclusive dp.....so for example if you used the Blizzard paper you would use the tag  blizzarddp.

For challenges here on STV use the same format.  (ie: stvsketchgk1)

 

The "GKD" tag will be used only on cards/projects that are exclusively Gina K. Designs.  The GKD gallery is meant to showcase only Gina K. so we want to keep it easy to search
through for the members who would like to browse all GKD images and
sentiments.  If you have combined Gina K. stamps with other stamps (which is just fine and fun to see!!!!) please still use the illustrator or artist name and the name of the stamp, just don't add the GKD tag.

 

If you've used Pure Luxury cardstock or GKD ribbon, you can include those details in the description when you upload your photo, but we won't have actual tags for those types of items.

 

If you'd like to keep your photos
organized, you can use "Albums", that will show up for your groupings
but not like the tags.  It's a simple way to see at a glance what's in
your own gallery  So if you'd like to tag your cards with your name, the
Album is the place to do it and not the actual tags.  You can have as
many albums as you'd like I believe!  LOL

We're keeping our tags relevant to Stamp TV.  When the tags are clicked on, anything that carries that tag will pop up in a separate "gallery".  So we are removing tags from other companies and things like that.  Any stamped project is welcome in our galleries, but we don't feel the need to have specific galleries for non GKD items.  Same thing with outside challenges....you are absolutely welcome to upload here for outside challenges and even combine an STV challenge with an outside challenge, but we won't have separate tags for those outside challenges.

Also for simplicity's sake we're removing some tags that describe techniques, supplies, etc.  These are so numerous and with so many various possibilities it's just time-consuming to attempt to cover them all.  Feel free to include any info in your description about techniques and supplies however!!  But also use tags you think fit really well and most likely we'll appreciate them!  We do want members to be able to search using the more common tags when wanting ideas or inspiration!!

We will have tags for these....for now these are tags for techniques, etc that we would like to see used,although this is a work in progress and we will be adding more:  CAS, masculine, christmas, halloween, easter, valentines, thanksgiving, birthday

Just no outside links to commercial blogs or stores please.

Now please do NOT feel overwhelmed!!  Ning has recently upgraded and allow the Admin to edit the tags that are already in place along with adding tags.  The Moderators are working through the gallery on past uploads slowly, and are keeping up with tagging current uploads.....so do NOT feel like you have to stress about that!  If you like to tag your photos then this is the guideline, but the Mods will add tags to photos that need it.  That's kinda one of our "jobs"!!!!   =)  So if you notice some of your tags disappearing or changing don't worry!!!

If there are any changes or additions we'll edit this discussion and bump it up to let everyone know!!!  Thanks so much for all your participation and for sharing your FABULOUS eye candy that make the  Stamp TV Gallery truly stunning!!!!!

Please feel free to ask questions in this thread also!!

Sorry to bother you again Lee but I am not sure of the correct way to tag my CSS Animal Kingdom Challenge card. I just uploaded and I used only GKD stamps but for some reason it put it in the mixed gallery. Did I do it wrong? Help please!

Thanks so much!

~Debbie~

No problem...the gallery itself is one big gallery.  The way it's "divided" is through the use of the tags.  There is no specific CSS tag to use.....but you can also upload your link and/or photo into the actual CSS Animal Kingdom thread that Carolina started if you'd like.
I don't know how to do that Lee. Could you please instruct me?

When you are typing into a box like this....look above it and you'll see a lot of icons.  The second one from the left, after the "link" one, is a photograph.  Just click on that and it will allow you to upload a photo from your computer directly into the box.  Once you upload it....you can choose to re-size your photo...generally 450 pixels is a good size.  Give it a try!!

I know this question has probably already been asked, but I don't know how to add a name to the "picture".  Gina's signature shows on her art and I want to do that, just haven't figured out how yet??

Any help would be wonderful!

Thanks,

Donna

Hi Donna.....here is a thread with some watermark information...hope it helps!!

I enjoyed doing the different sketchs and color cards but I finally just  stoped doing it as it was to hard and complcaited for me to try and figure out where tag goes and name goes. Isn't there a way to just    show an example of acard being sent in.love the cards and all thanks Joan

Joann...............here is a screen shot......once you upload your photo then you get this page.  You can fill in your title....then any description you'd like to put about your card.....then any tags you'd like in that 3rd line.   Also keep in mind you can add and edit your tags once your photo is uploaded too.

 


OMGosh  I finally found some of the rules.. I'm terrible with reading instructions of any kind *blushes* my dear hubby always fusses at me for that.

 Thank you Lee for keeping us updated on these things.  I'm very new at uploading photos in the first place, so have a lot to learn.  A big thank you to all of the Mods for your patience and kindness! 

I just uploaded my second photo and I am still having a difficult time trying to understand how to tag photos. I've noticed many of the uploaded photos have the following in the tag line:  gk, gkd,  and gkdt,. What is the difference between the 3 and do I need to include all 3?

Can you give me an example of a specific tag explaining what each word refers to?  I'd appreciate any help you can provide this poor soul.  :)   Thanks so much.
