It's CHA time and we don't get to go, so let's have a challenge instead!
Let's turn things all around and upside down! My challenge to you is to take stamp and turn it in a different way than it's normal orientation. Stamp a sentiment sideways, or lay a flower on it's side, or even upside down!
Challenge - Stamp an image sideways, upside down, or at a different angle than normal.
Tag - chaenvy1 upload your card or project to the STV gallery and add the tag chaenvy1
Due - Saturday, July 31 at 7pm Central
Prize - Hope Grows (winner will be selected at random and prize will be awarded by me) If you already have Hope Grows, please play along anyway and if you win, just let me know you already have it, so I can send something you don't have.
To be eligible, you must create a new project. If you own any stamps by Gina K Designs, be sure to use them on your project! If you do, you will be entered into the drawing twice! If you
don’t have any (yet!), feel free to use what you have!!!

To get to the challenge on STV - just click on title of post....have fun! ...here's my card

STV's Blast from the Past Challenge - Paper Quilting

Thursday AGAIN! time is flying by - cant believe I only have 4 more challenges :(
This week's challenge is to do a "quilt" card - and you do not have to sew (this is not the sewing challenge)....you can if you want, but not required - I didnt pull out my sewing machine - this is all faux stitching (and i pieced my quilt together with my papers facing down and scotched taped them together - I know - I cheated!! grin) To see Gina's tutorial go to the sidebar over on STV and scroll down to Paper Quilting.
The "twist" is "you can only use a sentiment - NO IMAGE" - let your beautiful quilt shine!! so sentiments only are to be on your card.....concentrate on your quilt....another way to use those scraps!
used GKD's Sand and Red Rocket cardstock with GKD's ribbon and sentiment is from GKD's Showtime Set "Thanks a Million"...quilted with scraps
oh-kee doe-kee! any questions ??? ohhhhhh, you want to know the measurements of this quilt??? the squares are done with 1-1/4 " squares, punched 3 sets and arranged how I wanted - matted them onto 3.75 x 3.75 black mat....it's a small mat - plenty of room to add another row of squares.

You can create any quilt design you want, any shape, any colors - quilts are alllllll different!

Have fun! and Thanks a Million for every one of you (-:
hugs,
Linda

airbrushed white cardstock with Copic Y08 and Memento's Angel Pink for the sky..stamped the reed with Memento Bamboo, sentiment stamped with Memento Rhubarb and sponged edges with same....
Sentiment is from SU's Circle of Friendship and used McGill flower punch and butterflies are done with MS punch...cardstock is GKD's Creme de Menthe and SU's Rose Red (although it sure looks darker in the pic)
This was done for Joan's Garden #7 Challenge.

Thursday Blast From the Past Challenge - 7/22 - Your FIRST GKD set plus tags

Happy Thursday everybody! And I start off with an apology – I have seen all your incredible entries…but haven’t been able to leave my comments before the challenge closed. I am so sorry – was traveling over a 3 day weekend and then there’s my “day” job that has had me working night and day….again, my sincerest apology.

But I did get two cards made this evening for this week’s challenge and

this week the challenge is to Use a Tag Die as a Decorative Element …and the “twist” is to use the FIRST Gina K Stamp set you purchased (or as close as possible to your first…just in case you have sooooooo many you don’t remember your first! LOL)
BUT if you dont have GKD stamps, just use one of your oldie but goodie stamps !

I did two cards to help get the mojo flowing on using the tags.

My “twist” card is from the set “Framed Friends” by Asela Hopkins! Loved this owl and the sentiments – went crazy over this one and the Gina K addiction began….big smile!

Used GKD’s Green Apple and Lemon Drop, Basic Grey’s Origins, GKD ribbon and Copics E57, 59, Y02, 26, C1 and 2. Mini pearls were colored with G67.

Had to do the “peacock” – cut my tags in half and hooked them over the edge of the border and then matted the bottom tag with the GKD Turquoise Sea  base cardstock, dp is stash (you know I love that!) and scallop mat is GKD's All Spruced Up. Colored with Copics G00, G21, B18 and gold pen.

Ok, now TAG ! you’re it!

Have fun with this challenge – looking forward to seeing how creative you get with tags and what YOUR FIRST set was… ahhhhhhh the Doc asks...so vot vas your virst taste of the GKD addiction?
smilin here (-:

Linda

Thursday Blast From the Past Challenge - 7/15 - Gatefold Card with Scraps!

hey hey!! it's Thursday! and time for a new blast challenge..
(woooohoooo on all the entries for the Split Technique - there were 53! a record for my blast challenges - so glad you enjoyed it)

This week the challenge is to do a Gate Fold card ...and the "twist" - to use only scraps! (with exception of your card base)
I cant be the only one with enough scraps that it makes me cringe - yet, I keep cutting into new and making more and more scraps!...Stop the insanity heeeeheeeeeheeeee..sooooooo

I am on a personal "scrap" journey to use up my scraps!! and inviting you to join me this week
(course, I sure hope this journey is more successful than my "weight loss" journey LOL)

glitter shows better if you enlarge pic (-:

 

This was all done with scraps (except base), I recognize scraps from GKD's Asparagas, Rose images were done with GKD's "A Year of Flowers" and "Pressed Flowers" (both by Melanie), colored with Copics V01, 04, 17, highlighted roses and leaves with Lilac glitter pen, mini adhesive pearls and crepe flower is inspiration from Selma Stevenson aka Queen of Flowers!
inside of the card is GKD's Botanical image and sentiment stamped with Vivid's Rose and Memento Black.
ok ok ok! if you dont have scraps (you are my hero!!) or you dont want to use your scraps - then you are free to cut into that cardstock for your project...and have more scraps!!

hope you try this and have fun! that's why we do this!!!
have a blessed week
hugs everybody (-:

Brenda's STV Inspiration Challenge

Good morning,
Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today I have posted a quick card made for Brenda's Inspiration Challenge at STV. Loved this picture - had a hard time doing this card because I couldnt get my mind off wishing I had Theresa Momber's "Aloha" set - she has the flowers matching this picture in her set....
The inspiration:


using Ranger's Embossing powder, SU background image stamp, new nestie stamp that fits their Dahlia set, and sentiment is from GKD's "Inside and Out" set...here's my card

Loved her inspiration - love that bag!! what do you think of that flower?..did it with the new stamps from Heartfelt Creations that match the nestie Dahlia set...they have several sets that fit in the nestie flower stencils.
This is the first one I've done - just fell in love with their dies and stamps...you will be seeing more!

have a blessed day,
