Hello I am so excited that Lori asked me to host this weeks Mix It Up Monday challenge. Thank you Lori!
In case you haven't noticed the Olympics are starting at the end of the week so my challenge is to Go For The Gold. So my challenge is you must use gold on your project. It can be just a tiny amount or you can make it be the focal point. Let you imagination soar!
I had so many ideas for this one and had a bunch of cards that I could have done, but I stopped at three. Here are the samples I have for your inspiration.
For my first card I used Melanie's Pretty Patterns to create a card with an Asian feel. I love red, black and gold together.
You can see the gallery HERE
Please enter STV12MON27 in the tag line of your entry in order to have your name placed in the drawing to win a grab bag chock full of Gina K. Designs stamps.
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! The deadline for this challenge is Sunday July 29th at 8:00 pm, CT.
Your cards are so pretty! Your first card really does have that Asian feel. Congrats on hosting!
Great challenge Brenda, love it and can't wait to play. Your cards are gorgeous!!!
Wow, what beautiful samples Brenda! Fun challenge too! Thanks so much for hosting!
Thanks Brenda for the great challenge! Not quite sure what I will come up with, but I have a few days to mull it over. I love the cards! Very elegant Christmas and I love how just a little gold makes your last card "pop". I too, like the "Asian" color combo. Looking forward to some great inspiration from the gallery submissions. Good luck everyone!
Brenda, your samples are gorgeous! Wonderful work! :)
Great challenge Brenda. I loved that you used the Olympics as your inspiration. The examples are lovely.
Love this challenge, Brenda. And these cards are just beautiful. Well done!
NIce cards and a fun challenge! I love gold touches in cards and in my quilting fabric :)
Congratulations on hosting, Brenda! And your cards are very attractive, too! Love the Asian inspired theme. And who doesn't love GOLD?
All three of your card samples are gorgeous Brenda and the second and third one would make fabulous Christmas cards.
