California Dreamin' Gold Challenge

The StampNation quarterly event starts today!  We are taking a (virtual) vacation to The Golden State, California.  

We have 2 sponsors for the vacation.  First up is the awesome Ellen Hutson.

She is giving away a gift certificate to one lucky winner and a gift code for all members.  Woot-Woot!

We also have a mystery sponsor.  Clues are being given out daily over at StampNation.  Can you guess who & what the sponsor is?  

On Day 1 we are celebrating the Golden State with a challenge to use gold on your project.   Here is a sneak peek at what the fabulous design team came up with.

Day 1 Sneak Peek

I'm not scheduled to post a card today, but I had I to make one in honor of the state I was born and raised in.  Here is what I came up with just for my blog readers.  <3

There is NO stamping on this card.   The gold foil chevrons are printed on vellum.  Love it!   To help the Prize Stag stand out a bit more I just die cut 3 of them and layered them together with 2-way glue.    The finishing touch was to take the card front to my sewing machine and sew on some loose lines with gold metallic thread.  This was probably the hardest part of this card because my sewing machine prefers to sew in straight lines.  (That's a good problem for a quilter to have!)

We would love to have you play along, but you have to be a member!
