October 16, 2019 Photo Inspiration


This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Photo Inspiration.


Again I had a lot of fun making this card - "designing" is not my best skill but I haveto confess I "cased" this lay out from an old card in my stash.  For this image I used 514-I Prized Pumpkin coloring with my copic markers, then using some DP from a pack that I "found" in a tub in my craftroom. Again fun choosing the colors and design as well as a couple of brads.  We just don't seem to use brads much anymore and I have "thousands" well close to it.

October 9, 2019 TicTacToe

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is TicTacToe which is one of my favorite challenges, so many choices to choose from.  I choose to do the top across


Isn't this image beautiful - I enjoyed coloring it with copics, then sponging the blue sky with just a hint of pink in the sky,and the narrow green strip at the bottom is washi tape.  I used 703-P for my image - Wood Friends.  I die cut the Happy Hello threetimes out of black,glued them together, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder which gives it the shine.  I recently got some rectangle stitched dies and it makes a perfect frame - the blue.

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our Rock Star designer Joy has chosen for us to do a card with "circles".  Here is my card for this challenge. 


I had some a"precut" cards already designed with the three circles at the bottom so went with that just to use something from my stash. 
I used 3114-I Just Hand Over and 4513-C Rubber Stamp Small.  I had just a small piece of the blue gingham (love gingham) stamped the image in the circles, colored with copics and just a bit of twine to set it off.  I think I havethe stamper in mind that I might be sending this card to.

September 25, 2019 Anything Goes

This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is Anything Goes.

I have had this stamp for a little while - and when I got a little boy as my chemo buddy I knew what card I was going to make for him.

I only had him for 5 weeks as his regular angel was in the hospital - so we have sub angels that will fill in in cases of emergency, vacation, etc.  I used a couple when I had my shoulder surgery.  I enjoy having the kids but oh so sad to think of what they are going through at such a young age. 

For this card I used Child with Wagon 4506-I and plate 10100 You Series  which offers a very nice variety of stamps that you can mix and match. 

I had some fun Echo Park papers that I thought were great for a younger child and matched it with some orange/white chevron from my stash.

September 18, 2019 Photo Inspiration

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is photo inspiration:


and here is my card I made, I  went with the photo .  I LOVE special fold cards especially if they are interactive, which this one is - I think it is call a pull tab card.

Card front - ready for envelope.

Pull the ribbon and the front opens up and reveals the greeting on the inside - then on the inside of my card I used an extra butterfly I had made.

For this card I used :
   Butterfly small  9009-F
   Monarch Butterfly  107-F
    Flutter By 9005-E

We are having a girls get together soon and I think my shoebox project might just be this card.

This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is Tic Tac Toe which is one of my favorite challenges, there are so many possibilities. 


Here is my card and I went with Winged Things, Square Card, and Embossing (heat).  

I went with a clean and simple card (for me) and then found a black doily that I had saved in my stash for quite some time.  Always love to used long forgotten stuff from my stash.  I choose the 102-F Dragonfly and in the center I used the sentiment 8708-E Sending Smile .  All are heat embossed with some glitter black embossing powder.  I had some pretty glittery enamel dots that I used in the corner to finish up the card.  My card is 4 x 4 square.

September 9, 2019 POTW


This week it is my turn over at The House that Stamps Built for POTW or Pick of the Week.  I decided to share a few of my favorite stamping tools that make my stamping experience a little easier.

Die cutter/embossing

Paper Cutter

Die brush

Tonic glass work space

Repeat Impressions Stamps

I have several more "tools" "gadgets", etc that I use every time I stamp, but these are my "favorites".  As you can see my desk even though it is tidied up has a lot more "tools" such as my Ott Light, 3 drawer storage units, desk waste basket etc.  I prefer to start each project with a clean work space, although that doesn't always happen - sometimes I get so much out that I can't find anything.  But I don't think I am the only one who does this.  

So bet you are waiting to see a few of my favorite Repeat Impressions cards that I have made over the years using a few of my favorite Repeat Impressions Stamps.  


8101-L Bull Dog

701-K Belle 
1105-E Thinking of You

10630-J Had a Crappy Day 
10634-I Outhouse

10632-I Toilet Tissue
10602-E  10609-F  10618-K sentiment


Hope you have enjoyed looking through my favorite things as well as my favorite cards made with Repeat Impressions stamps.
