StampTV Hostess Thank You Hop!!!

Tonight we are having a special blog hop to thank our recently retired StampTV Challenge Hostess Team members:

These 5 designers have provided StampTV with a challenge each week during the months of June, July and August.

If you're just popping in, start at Lee's blog so you don't miss any of the amazing creations along the way.

We have a special StampTV Challenge Magazine Volume 3* located on the Freebie Tab, where all of their challenges are shared in a download PDF that you can save to your computer and print out at your leisure!

Please join in our Thank You Discussion on Stamp TV and feel free to play along and say thank you with your own take on one of their challenges!!!
I managed to pull together a card of each of the hostesses for this hop!!!!!


This first card is for Melissa's sketch challenge #6. I just turned the sketch on it's side. I colored the flowers from Melanie's set "A Year of Flowers" with copics and added Stickled glitter. I paired it with Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Spice and printed paper by Basic Grey. The sentiments is from Gina's "Tropical Windows" set. The charm is one I picked up from the jewelry section at Michael's.
My next card is for Brenda's Inspiration #13 challenge using a very fall image from Martha Stewart.I colored the door image from Asela's "The Journey" with Copics. Then added some fun printed paper from one of the first StampTV sets, Pumpkin Spice that's been swiped with Distress Ink, twill tape and chocolate ribbon. The pumpkins from Theresa's "Autumn Beauty" are also colored with Copics and then popped up in front of the door.

This card is for Linda's Blast From the Past challenge #7 - Gatefold with scraps. I started by coloring the flowers from Gina's "Spring Florals" set with Prismacolor pencils and adding some Stickles for bling. I found the rest of the card in my scrap bins....paper from SEI and even the green silk and ivory ribbon were from my scrap stash!


This one I had a ton of fun creating!!! It's for Carla's #2 Color challenge - Orange, Pink and Green. I stamped the butterfly from "Hope is Faith" and colored with Copics. I then cut it out and mounted it onto the cardfront. Added the matching sentiment on paper from Basic Grey, some bling and called it a day.

My last card is my favorite from my bunch. It's for Giovana's "Show my your Christmas style" challenge. I've always done a blue, silver, and white tree....although with a new husband that might change this year. So, I looked all over my craft room to try to decide how to make what I had going on in my head for this challenge. I happened across some funky clear 3-D looking "paper" that I got a couple years ago at Mega Meet and the idea popped! I used some big punches and punched out ornaments from the crazy paper and silver reflective paper to layer behind each one. I then stamped the swirl's from Nina's "Grand Damask" in white Staz-On ink onto the crazy paper. I punch holes in each set and added the ribbon hangers, and then the bows. I stamped the sentiment from "XXX" onto white cardstock and punched it out with its matching scallop oval in the reflective silver. It's a very hard card to photograph well with all it's reflective and opaque surfaces!


Thanks for hopping along with us today! The next stop on the journey is Miesje's blog.


Happy Stamping,
Shannon
