Carved Wood Background, a coupon and more!

Hi Everyone,

StampTV is Back and more!

Hey Everyone!
I am so excited to have StampTV back and running at full speed! Looks like the new magicians at Ning did a great job and many of you who haven't been able to get on for a while are back in and part of the community! So things will stay just as they are for now and I have lots of stamping inspiration for you today!
First, Melanie Muenchinger share this gorgeous card in today's StampTV featured video!  She will show how to create a simple card that looks like anything but simple with her intricately detailed Arranged with Love frame stamp and Zig markers. This frame and its year round greetings work for any season just by changing the color palette. Isn't this card fabulous?!
To watch today's video, click the card below:
Then, in case you missed it on Friday due to our website issues, Karen Hightower posted another fun tutorial in the StampTV Kit Addicts group!
Tell me this card doesn't look like there are layers with torn edges? Can you believe that this is a single layer card! Look at the shadows!
Karen shows you step-by-step how to get this look today over at StampTV! To see this tutorial, click the banner below:
Then, Kendra Wietstock is at it again with another fabulous marker tutorial!
Today, Kendra uses Spectrum Aqua markers along with the beautiful Fine Feathers stamp set to create this multi-colored stunner! This can also be done with Zig Clean Color markers, Tombow markers and more!
To see Kendra's step-by-step tutorial, click the card below:

I hope you enjoy all of today's inspiration! 
And you can follow us on our other social networks below for more inspiration along with our StampTV.com website!

     
Make it a great day and Happy Stamping!

Admin Update- Information about StampTV's website

Hi Everyone,
I found a place to take my laptop where I can log on to StampTV. I want to give you an update on what's going on here. We know A LOT of you can't access StampTV and it's been down for a couple of days for many of you.

My main purpose for this email is to let you know that Gina K. Designs and StampTV are doing great and there is NOTHING wrong on our end.

It's not us, it's them. (Continue reading...)

Ning, our StampTV website provider, was recently sold for the third time to a new company called Cyndx LLC. I don't know much about this company and it may be great! But reading a lot of the comments from other website creators who have sites similar to StampTV, some are saying that tech companies are often purchased for the sole purpose of acquiring their personnel, which the new company then repurposes to their own needs. 

This has got me thinking about new and innovative ways to deliver videos, card projects and more to all of you. Having a great website isn't all that great if it's down half the time. So we are looking at alternatives and as soon as we know what the plan is, we will let you know.

Gina K. Designs is growing and we have lots of really exciting things coming in the near future! 

I do have one suggestion for you if you store your photos at StampTV and don't have copies anywhere else. Save them to your computer. If we do have to migrate the site to a new provider, we don't know what will be saved and what will be lost. All of our videos are on YouTube, so that isn't a problem. But photos might not make it to a new location. So, if there are photos you want to keep, save them to your computer by hovering your mouse over the photo and right clicking. Then choose "save image as" and add them to a folder where you can find them easily. (Just a suggestion if there are some you never want to be without.)

Also, we post all of our video links and photos on facebook, so if you haven't liked our StampTV facebook page, hop over and give it a thumbs up. This way, if StampTV goes down again or you are still having problems logging on, you can see all the latest and greatest stuff and get updates! :)

Here are all the social places to find us:
 YouTube

 Twitter

 Facebook

 Pinterest

 Instgram


So sorry for the inconvenience. I guess that can happen if you put all of your trust into another company. If they decide to pull the plug, we have lots of other alternatives and ideas. (And, I have downloaded all of your email addresses so any changes and upgrades we make, you'll be the first to know!)

I really would rather be stamping than thinking about computer stuff! How about you? LOL! We will get through any change together because the StampTV community is the best on the web! XO

Here is my latest card on StampTV and you can watch the video on my YouTube channel: Painted Autumn in Blue


Okay, time for me to go stamp something! Make it a great day and Happy Stamping to you too!
Hugs,
Gina K.
