May 25, 2016 Repeat Impressions SketchChallenge



GOOD MORNING

It is the last Wednesday of the month and that means sketch challenge over at The House that Stamps Built.



For my take on the sketch challenge I used a library pocket that I picked up at Michael's Store the last time I went shopping.  Who can go to Michael's and not buy something right???  I stamped my image using the new Flower Power Series - 10307H - 10316D and 10321-H  from REPEAT IMPRESSIONS .  After I stamped my image I embossed in black tinsel embossing powder.  I punched a circle out and cut it in half using the same designer paperthat I used for the background.  I stamped my Happy Birthday - 1113-D.  I needed a touch of bling - so wrapped a black ribbon around the library pocked and used a gem jewel again from Michael's.  

Hoping you will create a card using our photo inspiration to enter our challenge over at
The House that Stamps Built.  You don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will get an added bonus of an additional entry in the random drawing for a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate. HINT - take a peek over on my side bar and you will see a 10% discount on Repeat Impressions stamps.  We would love to see you create something.

Now why not go check out my DT team mates and see what they have created.

May 22, 2016 REPEAT IMPRESSIONS Flower Power Backgrounds and Borders Release.




GOOD MORNING


What a pretty Sunday it is here in Southern MO.  We had quite a rainy week - well really a rainy month but all this rain has made the flowers bloom and they are just beautiful.  I am so proud to be able to share with you another new release from REPEAT IMPRESSIONS  new flower series.  Below are two cards I made using Flower Power 103 series.  







My first card uses the large background stamp with such a variety of beautiful flowers and the ideas are limitless on how you can use this stamp.  I stamped it on white cs and colored it using my Gelatos and Faber-Castell big brush artist pens.  I think I like getting my fingers messy but it cleans up very well with a baby wipe.  I embossed my sentiment on vellum and added two med. black pearls.  

On my second card - again I used a flowered oval and I saw a frame - so I stamped the small butterfly using 9009-F.   I stamped both images on vellum and embossed with gold.  I then colored on the back of the vellum using Tombow markers.  I added my sentiment 4025F and embossed it in black on a shimmer gold strip.  A narrow blue ribbon finished this card .

May 20, 2016 Happy Birthday Dog


Using another Gerda Steiner digi image today - I needed a child's birthday card and thought this was perfect.  Colored this little doxie dog and banner with copic markers, cut out Happy Birthday - used some new cute summer papers I had in my "HUGE" paper pad basket - this is from Echo Park called Summer Days.  Thought it worked out really well for this image.  Going to put a little "green folding paper" in the card and I think he will be happy.     Challenges:

May 18, 2016 REPEAT IMPRESSIONS Photo Callenge



WOW
GOOD MORNING

We are already more than half way through May and somehow most days just seem to get busier.  This week was a photo inspiration


and here is my take on this challenge.


For this challenge over at THE HOUSE THAT STAMPS BUILT    I saw the spring flowers and immediately thought of this amazing 8 1/2  x 11 sheet of stamps called  Contain Yourself offered at 
I needed a pretty feminine birthday card and this was perfect.  I colored the image with copic markers, spica gel pens and copic white paint.  Then I remembered I had some pink tulle so I got it out, - ok - then some white organdy ribbon tied in a bow and I think this card was ready to go, except I needed a small glittered butterfly in the picture. I cut off the top foanything goesld of the card so I had room to use the vertical Happy Birthday 6104-J .  

 Hoping you will create a card using our photo inspiration to enter our challenge over at
The House that Stamps Built.  You don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will get an added bonus of an additional entry in the random drawing for a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate.

May 17, 2016 Cheers



Is this little guy the cutest - he is from Gerda Steiner, for a monthly challenge that she sponsers.  Each month she offers a free digi after you have participated (buying one of her darling digis), special for the monthly challenge.  I thought about this wanting a bright and cheery card.  I had a stencil from Memory Box called Texture Drip.  I sponged the stencil with some bright cheery clors to use for my background.  Colored the image with copic markers and cut out the word cheers.  What a fun card to make.

May 16, 2016 Fishes




Needed a cute simple easy quick card to get in the mail and I remember I had this one all colored up and "almost put together.  I really like fishes - and saw a video on line that I want to CASE using my Misti - but this one worked for me.  Used a stamp I have had for a while from Stampabilities colored him with colored pencils and glitter pens and put in a couple of extra fishes and some bubbles.  The extra fish and sentiment are from Simon Says.

May 14, 2016 House Plants


I needed a couple of "general" hello - thinking of you type cards and instantly it came to me that I had these images stamped and cut out using AMuse Stamps - when I first saw this stamp set I knew I would use it often - as it is basically gender neutral, pretty, masculine (if you use the the cactus) LOL.
I colored them using some splash color also from AMuse - my water brush and they were ready to go on a card.  Talk about easy.  The first card I used some washi tape (AMuse) and the second one I used a 1/2 doily.  They are already addressed and ready to go in the mail.
