Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters


Hi everyone, I'm so excited to be hosting this week's Mix It Up Monday!  Thanks so much, Lori for asking me.

What a great challenge Brenda had last week!  I hope you all had a chance to play along and get in the drawing for some GKD fabulous stamps. 

I've got a different challenge for you this week and I'm calling it "Make it a Double" and here it is:

As stampers we have many stamps.  Sometimes we look at them as only focal image stamps or sentiment.  I'd like you to look at your stamps a bit differently for this challenge.  My challenge is for you to pick ONE stamp from your collection and use it first as a background stamp and then as the focal image.  The only other stamp you're allowed to use is a sentiment stamp. 

Here are a couple of cards I created using one stamp for the bg and the focal image.


For this card I used this beautiful fish from Theresa Momber's "Under The Sea" set.  Sentiment is from the same set.


For this card I used one of the butterflies from GKD "Take Flight" set.  Sentiment is from the same set. 


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 your challenge is Sunday August 5th  at 8:00 pm CT. 

You can check out the gallery for this challenge HERE

What an awesome challenge. I commented on your cards in the gallery, not realizing you were hosting the challenge. I just hadn't read it yet. I can't wait to try this out.

Great challenge Cheri!  Your fish card is my favorite!  I must see if I can find a little time this week to make a card.

CLEVER challenge!  Count me in!  Beautiful cards!
