Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hello StampTV friends! It’s Melanie, with a new MIUM challenge! First of all, I hope everyone’s 2017 is off to a great start! Thank you so much for joining this week’s Mix It Up Monday!  I’m excited to host!

My MIUM challenge – STV17MON2 for you this week is... “Third Time’s the Charm!”!  For this challenge, choose a stamp to showcase THREE times on your card, as a beautiful image always makes a real impact in multiples! 

Now on to my sample…You can, of course, add other embellishments, greetings, and have fun being creative with your colors (they can be different each time you stamp that main image, different technique each time, etc, just make sure it repeats three times!!)  I had my Triple Play Frame set on the brain when I was trying to decided what to make this week, but you do NOT need the frame to play along (just makes for an easy sketch, and lots of images to choose from)

You *don’t* have to have a greeting for each image, I just liked these from All About You!  I did a direct to stamp technique by swiping my colored pads into a gradient on each butterfly, and then adding some pierced dots like that were flying in and out of the frame ‘s layers, and finally tracing the underside of each butterfly to create a drop shadow.  i love how this turned out!! So glad I had a challenge to stretch me today!

Love the idea of the butterflies flying into the frames.  Great card and challenge.

Now this is a challenge I can sink my teeth into. My mojo was so far gone this am I was cleaning stamps and quite forlorn. Here is another great reason that I love this place.

Oh so gorgeous Mel!  Love that little butterfly and how you colored it!  Thanks for hosting and for the inspiration!

This card is beautiful. I love butterflies and the sentiments are the perfect touch.

Wonderful card.

Hi there, I have a question or two. I would like to enter my card for this. Do I have to sign in or anything like that? And where do I upload my photo? TIA

When is the deadline to enter the challenge?  I don't do the MIUM CHALLENGE!!! Do have to do that to be liable to winner 20.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE? thanks Linda
