GKD Thank you Hop! for Vicki, Sharri, Tina and Karen

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

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!  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.

This card is for Sharri - one of my favorite challenges was her Glitter Color Challenge (stvbpsls06)
glitter is always hard photograph - hope you can see it !
 Used Copics V01,04, Basic Grey's Kioshi, Memento's Bamboo, mini pearls colored with Copic V01, cardstock is GKD's Vibrant Violet and Spruce (for mat),stash ribbon and  images are from GKD's "Hope Grows" by Theresa Momber...
and of course, glitter and glitter pen!!

This card is for Tina - one of my favorite challenges she did was to use Ocean Mist and Tan (stvcctg8)

airbrushed the Impressabilities stencil "Sea Scape" using Copic BG02, cardstock is GKD's Ocean Mist, Sand, Black and White, Viv's Aqua, Memento Black, nestie, ribbon from stash. Colored mini pearls with Copic 110 and images are from GKD's Gifts From the Sea by Melanie!

This one is for Karen - fell in love with her acrylic bookmark challenge, have made a ton and given them away - just perfect for little "thinking of you" gifts for co-workers, friends and family ( stvabckk8)
This is one of the easiest items to make! used acrylic cardstock, images from GKD's By Your Side by Aselea Hopkins, colored with Copics V04,15, sponged with SU's Elegant Eggplant, cut sentiment out with design scissors and voila!

This one is for Vicki - loved all her sketches, so randomly picked her sketch stvscvd08
Used this week's STV Inspiration challenge for the colors, Basic Grey's Origins, Memento's Bamboo and Tuscan Tan, cardstock is GKD's Green Grass and Bubblegum Pink, airbrused vellum with Copic RV21 for flowers, adhesive mini pearls, MS punches and the images are from GKD's Hope Grows by Theresa Momber.

Ladies, your challenges were awesome and certainly continued to "raise the bar" challenging us to think "outside the box" which is exactly what is needed to help us grow and fine tune our skills....Your cards went in the mail this morning...enjoy and know that big hugs are included with the cards!

again, many many thanks!
