Tonight we are having a special blog hop to thank our recently retired StampTV Challenge Hostess Team members:
These 4 designers have provided StampTV with a challenge each week during the months of March, April, and May, which totals up to 13 challenges! To view each of their challenges in one area, click on their names and it will direct you to their Idea Center Inspiration Page.
Even better, we have a special StampTV Challenge Magazine Volume 2
* located on the Freebie Tab
, where all 52 of their challenges are shared in a download PDF that you can save to your computer and print out at your leisure! *We will be doing a similar magazine for our first Challenge Hostess team as well in the near future, so watch for that soon.
To honor the team a bit more, several GinaK Designers are joining together in a special thank you blog hop and would like to invite you to join us! After visiting the links below, please check out this discussion
on StampTV and share a favorite card you've made in the past or a new one you're inspired to make using one of the challenges from any four of the challenge hostesses.
Here are the thank you cards I made for our wonderful retiring hostesses:
For Tina, I used STVCCTG8 - Aqua and Tan - for my inspiration:
I used Melanie's Gifts From the Sea for my images and Ranger Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Stormy Sky.
For Karen, I made a card based on her Tag challenge (STVABCKK6):
I layered my tag onto a card. I used the bird bath from Theresa's Sending Sunshine and a sentiment from the Spring Mix StampTV kit. The base is GKD Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus and the DP is Webster's Pages Postcards From Paris.
For Vicki's card, I used her challenge, STVSCVD03:
I used an image and sentiment from Nina's Fine Furnishings and Fine Furnishings Additions. The couch is paper pieced and popped up. The CS is GKD Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea and the DP is October Afternoon The Thrift Shop.
Last, but not least, I made a card for Sharri based on her challenge, STVBPSLS03 - Sewing on Cards:
I used a sentiment from Melanie's Arranged With Love set. The DP is Basic Grey Capella. I stitched around the panels with my Janome Sew Mini.
Thanks for looking!
