Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I'm so excited to welcome you to the first release party challenge at STV!! 


My challenge - should you choose to accept it - is to create a card/project with just ONE color and ONE neutral, a MONOCHROMATIC MONOGRAM card! 


I chose to use Melanie's new A Beautiful Life set and created a yellow tulip card with Lemon Drop cardstock!  I know I should have added some lemon drop ribbon but I didn't because I wanted my focus to be on the MONOGRAM too!  I have uploaded a WORD document for you to download and change to YOUR personalization.  If you are not able to download it, it's o.k. but I would LOVE for you to try your hand at making a card with your name on it!  If you have any questions, let me know!  **Also, the downloaded file will have the personalization CENTERED better, I left mine more in the upper left so I could leave room for my favorite bee!**



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!!!

Deadline is Monday, March 22, at 7pm (CDT)

IMPORTANT - Upload your project to the gallery using the keyword GKDMAR10DB and be sure to link back to this thread so we all can see your project. If you are using GKD stamps, be sure to add that to the keywords, too, with a comma and space separating them, like this: GKDMAR10DB, GKD. That way, anyone looking at the challenge gallery or the Gina K gallery will be able to see your card!

On Tuesday morning, one of the moderators will take all the entries posted and pick a winner out of a hat, then post the winner right here in this thread.

****The winner of this challenge will receive any stamp set they choose from Gina K Designs valued at $24.95 or less!*****  WOO-HOO!  Have fun!

Gorgeous!!! I love this challenge!
Ohhh I LOVE that Donna!!
Stunning and what fun LOVE monogrammed notes - can we use initials like a real monogram??
Gorgeous card Donna. I love this challenge. Hmmm, what color will I use?
Great I am in on this one!
I can't wait to try!!!
This sounds like a fun challenge and I love your card. It is breathtaking!
I'm confused, there is actually 2 colors on the card....yellow and green. Does the green not count? I assume the neutral is the white card stock
Great challenge, Donna!
sure you can! Just put whatever you want on the template once you download it and print directly on your cardstock!
