new Challenge Hostesses at STV

Have two cards for you today. Both are for challenges over at STV with two new hostesses (there are more challenges but I've only gotten these two done). The exciting news is that the challenges are now being hosted by some of our Alumni Center Stage Spotlight Design Team instead of the Senior Design Team (although Gina's Techinique Challenge remains Gina's).

This card is for Jennie Harper's first sketch challenge.

colored pinecones with Copics - E, and then clear embossed them. The little pinecones have been covered with clear glaze and sentiment is white embossed.
Stamp set is GKD's Winter Foliage and cardstock is Gina's All Spruced Up, dp is stash.

This next card is for Selma Stevenson's first  Inspirational Challenge:

loved the colors and the feel of cold and swirly snowflakes from her inspiration (pop over to STV or her blog from my sidebar to see her inspiration!)
Used GKD's Holiday sentiments and Holiday Cheer with SU's Temptin Turquoise. Stamped snowflakes onto stash dp, colored and glittered EK's flourish punch, and a Basic Grey brad in center of scalloped punch.
Cardstock is SU's Mellow Moss and Temptin Turquoise, probably their dp also....

This is an auto post since today is my first day back to work from vacation!
Have a blessed day,

Beautiful pine cones. I love that stamp. I am now caught up with your blog and I am so happy that I stopped by to take a look at all your beautiful creations, and tosee what you are up to these days. You are a stamping machine!!! You have got to slow down I can't read this fast. LOL

seriously, I hope you are back in full swing. Have you heard that all my tests are normal. It's just my mind that is going.

Have a great week my friend.
