Mix It Up Monday

Mix It Up Monday

StampTV asked me (!) to host today’s Mix It Up Monday challenge. How about that! My “Get It Inky (Finally)!” challenge is for you to find a stamp in your collection that you have never gotten inky, and then ink it up with your favorite color. As some of you may know, that would be orange for me. I ended up making a monochromatic orange card in the process, but you don’t have to. The various designs from the free Sunlit Summer digital paper pack (get it here on StampTV’s freebies page) were perfect for creating the sunray background. Thanks to Shannan Teubner for a great tutorial!

It is hard to admit, but there were several never-before-used Lovely Labels for me to choose from. I really liked the shape of the Labels Twenty die for this card. Both ends of the stamped die-cut looked like they were missing something, so I colored self-adhesive half pearls with a Copic marker and created a little pattern with them.

If you’re a StampTV member, I hope you give this challenge a try!

    That is beautiful and I love the colors! I also love that die and stamp. Perfect combination and hard to believe you had not inked it!
