Mix It Up Monday - Striped Background!

Hi there creative stampers!!  I hope your Monday kicks off a great week and what better way than with a fun challenge to get your creative juices flowing??

I am so excited to bring you this week's Mix It Up Monday challenge - to create a striped background on your card!  It's so easy to do and creates a unique background especially when your go to background tends to be pattern paper a lot (personally, I have not been wanting to use pattern paper that much, which explains why I wanted to make this background!) All I did was choose my marker colors (I used Copics because they have different size tips) and put my cardstock square on my scor-mat's grid to get my ruler lined up perfectly.  Then, I varied the widths between marker colors and had fun! 

With all that said by Donna here is my sample entry…tfl

Mix It Up Monday Challenge---Breaking All The Rules

Stamp TV has another challenge and what a great one at that…check it all out HERE

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to another Mix It Up Monday, hosted by yours truly...ME!  And this time, we are Breaking All the Rules!!  That is my challenge to you today, to break the rules...what rules?   Well, as you know, in art, there ARE rules that some follow such as Rule of Odds, Rule of Thirds, Rule of Space...etc...While I wont go into an art lesson, which Im far from being able to teach, lol!  I will give you some examples that you can do to 'Break the Rules' in our little hobby here!   Examples include, but not limited to:

1.  TWO brads/flowers/pearls (no odd #s!).
2.  Put the image at an angle or not centered.
3.  Use colors that clash.
4.  No standard size card...ex.  41/4 x 51/2 is a standard size card, make a card anything BUT that size.

Here is my sample and TFL…Mine is a 4X4…

Free For All Friday Challenge

Welcome to another Free For All Friday Challenge here at Stamp TV!!  I couldn't think of a better way than to end the week than with a fun challenge. My inspiration for this challenge came from the amazing weather we've been having here in California, so hope you like it
My challenge is called Lazy Summer Days. Here are the details:
  1. Create a CAS (Clean and Simple) card.
  2. The theme should be "Summer".
  3. You can stamp your image but don't color it in. This means you can't use any coloring tools - no Copics, no markers, no color pencils, no crayons, no chalks, etc. This is where the "Lazy" comes in!
  4. HERE is where you can post and look at the sample card done...but in the mean time here is mine..tfl

and no I didn't color my drum set it reflects the color of the orange from the Clear stickles I used in real life it is clear....
