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!
Here are the cards I made using a favorite challenge hosted by each of these fabulous ladies.
First is a card using Tina's Color Challenge to use Red, Kraft and Ivory. I pulled out an older Gina K set called Summer Harvest. I stamped the cherries on the textured burlap card paper and colored with Copic markers.
Next is a card using Karen's challenge to make a tag. I made a tag that I then added to a card to send to her. I used Fine Furnishings for the chair and pillow and Thanks a Million for the Sentiment.
The next card is for Vicki's Sketch from 4/1. I used the set Stars for this one. Vicki was such a Rock Star with all the awesome sketches she provided and so I knew I had to use that sentiment for her card. :o)
My next card is for Sharri's Blast From the Past challenge to use paper piecing. One of my favorite techniques! I used the yummy strawberries image from the latest StampTV Kit and paper pieced them with papers from Basic Grey Nook and Pantry.
I also made a card for Gina because she did a rock star job giving us inspiring photos each week to help get our stamping mojo going. I was inspired by INSPIRE 19 - Send a Smile. So I made this groovy card with a smiley t-shirt for her. It is also the card for my sketch challenge this week.
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.
