Hello StampTV friends! Happy Monday and welcome to Mix It Up Monday! Cathy here with a new MIUM challenge. Last Friday was Earth Day and it put me in the mood to recycle. I thought it would be fun to do a Trash to Treasure challenge. Take something you’d normally toss out and incorporate it into your card. See that pile of junk mail on your counter? I bet there is some decorative paper waiting to be unleashed. Got a stash of bread ties? They could become a unique embellishment! Be creative and have fun!
Here’s what I came up with:
I've been collecting the tabs from my energy drinks for awhile; I love the bright colors and knew I could do something crafty with them. They made a perfect flower! It took some crafting ingenuity to get them situated, but I'm very pleased with the result.
Stamps: Spring Blossoms
Ink: Versamark and Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock and Patterned Paper from the Shabby Spring Stamp TV kit
Trash: Can tabs
Accessories: Flower Punch and Accents from Stampin Up; ribbon scrap (used to corral the tabs)
Are you ready to get trashy? I can’t wait to see what you come up! Make sure to have your creation uploaded to the gallery, with the tag, STV16MON17 by May 1st, 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?

CLEVER! Fun Challenge!
Sounds like fun. So I'm off to go Garbage picking!!
Who would have thought to use drink tabs to make a flower. Unique idea and a fun challenge. Hmm - now what can I make?
Nicely done! What a fun use for those tabs.
I love up-cycle, too. Should be able to come up with something. Your creation is spectacular.
What a clever embellishment! Sounds like a fun challenge. Now I'm off to the trash to see what I can find.:)
Well, you are indeed clever. I can see where this will be a fun challenge and I do mean a CHALLENGE! I do love your flower you made though.
Definitely a good challenge, thanks, Cathy!
HERE is my card for the challenge. What fun to dig treasure out of the waste basket.
This looks like a fun and challenging challenge, LOL! Love your clever embellishment, let me see what I can come up with.
What a fun challenge! Love your card, this is a great challenge.....thinking.....
