Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I am excited and so honored to have been asked to host Mix It Up Monday this week! Thanks, Lori, for asking me. 

I don't know about where you live, but it has been a really hot summer here already in southern Wisconsin. There are many summers we don't hit the 90 degree mark, and we have been past it several times already this summer. We are looking at another hot week with no rain ahead, so I thought that we should have a hot and cool mix it up Monday challenge! That's right, your entries in the challenge this week need to include something hot and something cool. Think hot colors like hot pink, red hot, sunshine yellow, etc. and things that are cool, such as water, drinks, snowflakes, etc. Or maybe you want to reverse it -- cool colors and things that heat you up! Mix it up and have fun, but be sure you include something that is hot and something that is cool!

My card sample for the challenge includes hot colors -- red and yellow -- and a cool, refreshing drink and strawberries.

I used the Gina K Designs Pure Luxury red hot paper for the card base and around the sentiment. The yellow and red patterned paper is from a DCWV pack and it is glittery! I stamped the margarita and the strawberry using the fabulous GKD set by Theresa Momber called Sweet Strawberries. The sentiment is from the GKD set Cool Beans (I left off the "Beans" part of the sentiment because I just wanted it to say You're Cool). I colored the strawberries with Copics, filled the glass using Stickles and put a touch of white glitter along the rim of the glass (gotta have that salt or sugar for a margarita, right?). I also used some Crystal Effects on the glass to make it look shiny, but it didn't show up very well in the photo.

Now it's your turn to get hot and cool down!

Please create and upload a new project for this challenge. You may not link a previous card/project.  There is no combining of Stamp TV challenges allowed to be eligible to win a prize.  However, you can combine it with challenges outside of Stamp TV.  And remember you don't have to use Gina K. Designs stamps, but if you do your name will go into the drawing twice!

When you upload your card to the gallery make sure you add the tag STV12MON23 to ensure you are entered into the drawing for the prize. You can find all of the entries for the challenge here. 

The deadline for this challenge is Sunday, July 1st at 8:00 pm CT.

I can't wait to see all of the great creations for this hot and cool challenge!

Love your fabulous card and all the details you added. I can almost taste your drink. Great challenge, I've got my thinking cap on :D

What a fun challenge!  Love your drink.

Looking forward to making one and to seeing all the entries! What a coincidence, I too am from Southern Wisconsin, Beloit to be exact which means you can't get much more southern than that being that South Beloit is in Illinois.

Thanks for the ideas!

This sounds like a great challenge, I'll try to get some time to play later.  And could the rest of you please send some of your hot weather to the Pacific Northwest?  It's been cold and rainy here and we're all getting pretty tired of it!


Julie,It's on the way...I lived in wa for 48 years and now I live by Yuma,az and it is hot.I spend my summers back home in longview,wa..looking forward to cooler temps:)
