Tonight we are having a special blog hop to thank our recently retired StampTV Challenge Hostess Team members:
- Tina Gilliland: Color
- Karen Knegten: Anything but a Card
- Vicki Dutcher: Sketch
- Sharri Seffens: Blast from the Past
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.
Here is a card I made to send to Tina featuring her color challenge from 3/22 STVCCTG4 because purple is her favorite color! I used the current STV kit Enjoy the Sunshine and made my card clean & simple! I added some crystal lacquer to the flowers that looks so pretty - I wish I had had more time to play with her awesome color challenges, great job Tina!
Here is a card I made to send to Vicki, who came up with a sketch that truly caught my eye – I would have never thought of it myself and adore how yummy this card turned out! This is her sketch from 3/5 stvscvd01. I used Enjoy the Sunshine again – first time to ink up the delicious strawberries in the set! I enjoyed coloring them with my copics too – and I also put some crystal lacquer on them to make them all shiny!
Lastly, I made a card to send to Sharri for her great job with the blast from the past challenge – and I used one of my favorite techniques, paper-piecing for my card from her stvbpsls12 challenge on 5/21. I had to use Nina’s beautiful Fine Furnishings set, it was so fun picking out a pattern for my lounge chair, it’s Basic Grey Green at Heart. I used the Victoria cuttlebug embossing folder on my pumpkin spice layer, it goes well with this elegant set!
I wish I had time to make something for Karen’s Anything but a Card challenge, but with having to keep up with paying bills for our house being built and getting this house ready to sell, I have had little ‘extra’ time lately! Sorry, Karen – I know you did a fabulous job bringing a fun challenge every week, I checked them all out!!
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.
