Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters




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.


The first thing I think of when using gold is Christmas so of course I had to do a Christmas card, and it adds one to my small stash for this years cards.


Finally I used Melanie's Stately Flowers 4 to create this card. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

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.

Congratulations on hosting.  Your cards are beautiful.  It is a fortunate coincidence that I just finished making 50th Anniversary cards for friends of my parents.  :)

Congratulations on hosting Brenda. All three samples are beautiful. Ditto what Doris said about the Asian feel of your first card. I will have to CASE your second card - I have that stamp! Great challenge, I hope to play along.

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!

Thank you Sean!!
