Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hello StampTV friends! Happy Monday and welcome to Mix It Up Monday! Cathy here and this is my first time hosting a MIUM challenge and guess what? Friday (April 1st) is my birthday! Since I’m an April Fool, I thought it would be fun to make humorous cards. It can be any occasion, just make us laugh!

I had fun playing with the Shabby Spring StampTV kit that came out awhile ago, and I’m ashamed to say I hadn’t played with it yet. Here are two cards I made using the Tickle Your Funny Bone stamp set. Both cards use cardstock and patterned paper from the kit; the images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with various Stampin’ Up markers and blendabilities.

And my second card:

Are you thinking, “I don’t have a humorous stamp set, what can I do?” Simple! Be creative! Here’s a card I made using the same papers, GinaK Edible Eggplant and Warm Spring Wishes stamp set. I freehanded a sentiment to give my card a humorous twist.

Are you ready to laugh? I can’t wait to see what you come up! Make sure to have your creation uploaded to the gallery, with the tag, STV16MON13 by April 3rd, 8PM CST. Here are the rules:

One lucky participant will win a $20.00 gift Certificate to the Gina K. Designs Store.

Can I get a huge WAHOO?

Wahoo!  Haven't seen a humor challenge in awhile.  Thanks!  I don't have humor stamps to speak of, but I'd like to try something.

Congrats on hosting......FUN inspirational cards and challenge!

What a fun challenge!  Awesome cards too!  Thanks for hosting for us this week!  I hope to get to play  too!  :D

I can't wait to see what you come up with! Think outside the box, and I know you can use what you have in your stash. Spring makes me happy so I wanted to create a challenge to make everyone smile!

 So, so Challenging!!! Funny cards Cathy! Fun Challenge! Off to think!

Wahoo! But a question - to qualify for the challenge, it has to be a Gina K image - correct? Have some funny ones, but not GK! So, if has to be GK, this is really going to be a challenge! Thanks for hosting and challenging us!

Wahoo!! Great challenge! Happy Birthday, my best friend is also born on April 1 and her name is Kathy!

I was looking through the store recently and saw those humorous stamps. Gina has such a great variety in the store! Thanks for hosting this challenge, I do have an idea using the Gina K stamps I already have.

Wow!  This IS a challenge for those of us who don't have any humorous GKD stamps!  Time to think outside the box!

Fun! Love those images wish we would have more "old" folks humor!  Thanks for hosting and Happy Birthday!!

Hmmm - this is an interesting challenge. Too bad I can't use stamps from another company to participate. I have couple of good ones but they are not GKD. Must put on my thinking cap.

What a fun challenge!  Thanks so much for hosting this weeks challenge!  :)  <3
