A Very Special Gina K Hop

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 .

These ladies did such a fabulous job that it was very hard to choose just one challenge!

My first Card is for the Monday Color challenge. I chose the Pink, Brown and White Challenge, STVCCSB05. The flowers are from the Friendship's Garden stamp set. I stamped them on Gina's White PL and colored them with copics (RV02, RV10, RV11, RV13). I added Diamond stickles to the centers for a bit of sparkle. The sentiment is from Tag Lines.

And here is how I finished the inside of the card. The sentiment is from the Inside and Out Stamp set and I felt it was perfect for these ladies so I used it on the inside of each card.
Card supplies: Stamps - Friendship's Garden, Inside and Out. Paper - Tan Leather, Innocent Pink, White PL, BG's Bittersweet. Ink - Rich Cocoa, Copics. Other Supplies - Ribbon, Pearls, EK Border Punch, Stickles, Spellbinders Labels 8, Labels 11 and Ribbon Tags

My next card is for the Blast from the Past Challenge and I chose the Nestibilites in your Cuttlebug Part 1 and 2 challenge, STVBPSS06. The flower image is from the Botanical Dreams stamp set. I stamped the image on Gina's white PL and colored it with copics (E25, E27, E34, E93, E95, E97, YG01, YG03, YG05, YG07, Y00, Y02). The sentiment is from Kindred Greetings for Her.

And this is how I finished the inside of the card.
Card supplies: Stamps - Kindred Greeting for Her, Inside and Out, Botanical Dreams
Paper - Lemon Drop, Blush Blossom, White PL, BG's Lilykate
Ink - Rich Cocoa, Copics
Other Supplies - Ribbon, Pearls, Oval and Long Rectangle Nestibilities,

And my last card is for the Anything but a Card Challenge. The challenge I chose was the Anything But a Card Inchies challenge, STVABCCB08. The leave image is also from Botanical Dreams. I stamped it with Bamboo leaves ink on Gina's white pl paper and used my G40 copic marker to add a bit of shading before cutting it into 1 inch squares. The sentiment is from Tag Lines.

And the inside of the card.

Card supplies: Stamps - Flowers for Daisy, Inside and Out, Botanical Dreams. Paper - Lemon Drop, Fresh Asparagus, White PL,BG's Lilykate. Ink - Bamboo Leaves, Copics. Other Supplies - Long rectangleNestibilities, Spellbinder Tags, MS Border Punch, Chocolate Twill, Brads.
