Thanks StampTV Challenge Hostesses!!!

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. Visit these links to see all the projects we've prepared for our alumni hostess team:
And, the new StampTV Challenge Hostess team is also joining in on the hop tonight!
To see all the challenges the Retired Hostess team has shared during their term, visit the StampTV Idea Center . The cards are also presented in .pdf file format if you'd like to print them out!! My first card is a thank you to Selma Stevenson who was in charge of the Blast from the Past this last three months. One of the challenges was to create a card using your Cuttlebug but only embossing on "part" of the card. On this card I chose the "Tiny Bubbles" folder and added it to the bottom half. I then used my Scor-Pal and made two lines running across the card where I added my ribbon to the middle of these lines. I used Nina Brackett's, "Lovely Labels" as my focal point and also Nina's, "Bug Me Anytime" set for the caterpillar and the butterfly images. I wanted to stay with the "spot" theme throughout my card from the "Lovely Labels". Thanks again, Selma, you certainly brought back those techniques we sometimes forget about! My second card is a thank you to none other than Shannon Bracken who did the Color Challenges and who's place I am honored to be chosen for this next three months!! Shannon did such an AWESOME job of giving us colors I sometimes never think to put together. But I will admit... my favorite was the purple and yellow which I made a card here with. I LOVE my PURPLE!!! Again I used, Nina's, "Lovely Labels" and this time teamed it up with the butterflies from the Stamp TV Kit, "Picture It" set. Great job Shannon and who knows.. you may see purple again in the next three months.. *smile* In my last project I created a card holder box for Carolina Buchting. Carolina was in charge of the Anything but a Card Challenges and I thought perhaps she can use this box to keep all her "thank you's" from us in it! One of Carolina's projects was to use "Inchies" in our design. I chose to do this to make my flap for the card box. I added one special Inchie at the ribbon that she can either use for a date or her name. Great job Carolina, I know I couldn't have come up with such creative ideas as you did. You gals all did StampTV proud and I am so blessed to be such a small part of this fantastic group. I'm know you gals will be sharing more of you fabulous work with us as the days go on but you certainly do deserve a HUGE THANK YOU for all the work you did and the inspiration you brought to us all. Have fun hopping through the many thanks we are all sending your way!! Have a great night everyone! *smile* Signature
