Tonight several GinaK Designs designers are joining together to host a special thank you blog hop to our recently retired StampTV Challenge Hostess
Team. The four designers we're honoring tonight have provided weekly challenges
for the STV members for the entire months of December, January, and February and
we are so thankful for their inspiration and hard work!
Each participating designer was asked to choose one challenge shared during the past 3 months and make a card to share on their blogs tonight as well as to send that card to the hostess.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the inspiration!
My first card is for Jennie- for all her wonderful sketches! This card uses sketch STVSCJH12
, and uses the little bird from Asela's "Dream Birds" set.
This next one is for Carolina, using a belly band that she showcased in STVABCCB07
. Now that I have been given the opportunity to hostess this challenge category, I can only hope to do as good of a job as Carolina did. I used Melanie's "Pressed Flowers" stamp set to make the belly band around this card. The sentiment is from Gina's "Inside and Out" set.
Here is the Thank you card I made for Selma using her "Blast from the Past" challenge STVBPSS12
. For this card I stamped the rose from Melanie's "A Year of Flowers" set, masking the center rose, before stamping the other two. I colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I Cb'd the background and trim. I added a little grosgrain ribbon and a bow and then the sentiment- Voila'.
My last Thank you card for this hop is for Shannon for coming up with all those fantastic color challenges. I chose to honor her using Challenge STVCCSB09
. I CB'd the background and added the Hope is Faith butterfly, which was embossed with Detail White EP on vellum. I added a couple of extra touches, the ribbon, bow, tag and inked stitching and it was complete.
