August 5, 2020 "In the Dark"

Turning the calendar over to another month - and this week over at
The House that Stamps Built it is my turn to pick the designer challenger and I choose "In the Dark".  This is pretty wide open to your interpretation and for my card I choose :


I have had this image of this darling fairy 4301-K Fairy's Lantern  and the sentiment 6520-C Dream Big.  Fairies come out at night all kinds - the tooth fairy, the fairy-tale fairy and the fairy on my card.  I used a DP (HL) and added a few more splatters.  I stamped, colored and fussy cut the fairy then popped her up on pop dots.  Embossed the Dream Big in white embossing powder.  I added some tiny silver sequin stars and card is done.

Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of In The Dark.  So many possibilities on this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps you will have two chances to win a $25 gift certificate towards stamps. Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Anything Goes -  and  as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.

July 29, 2020 Sketch Challenge

Wow another month almost gone - and it has been a hot one - perfect for my cactus card which grows well in the desert heat. This week our challenge over at The House that Stamps Built  is a sketch challenge.  This was our sketch

and here is my card:

.  Now this card had a purpose -my granddaughter (who is the light of my life) and has given us three great grand children has lost 35 pounds and has a few more to go - so I thought I would send her a card of encouragement.  I used
2422-L Cactus - stamped in a pretty shade of green .  Can you believe I had one piece of cactus paper in my "stash" so I used part of it for this card.  Two more coordinating prints and the basic layout was complete.  
I then used a die cut alphabet to cut out the letters "loookin sharp" as a play on words and glued them in place.  I mailed this to her a a couple of days ago so anxious to hear from her to see how she liked it.  She got it and loved it - said she "had the best grandma ever".  

    Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of follow the sketch. So many possibilities on this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps you will have two chances to win a $25 gift certificate towards stamps.

July 26, 2020 TJ Junkies Christmas Challenge

Just getting in under the wire as there is only one more day over at TJ Junkies Christmas challenge.  I really didn't have a Christmas specific stamp so I used what I had and made it work.  This bunny us Happy Winter Wishes and isn't she a cutie.  I plan on using her for some of my winter cards.  I paper pieced her scarf and coat and boots out of velveteen paper (don't you just want to touch), so soft.  dug around Christmas papers I had and again made it work.  Again die cut peace for my sentiment and then used some tiny silver stars.  I had a piece of scrap hillside that I used on my card before this one so I had the bunny standing on that.

July 25, 2020 TJ Junkie Christmas

Is she not cute???  TJ Junkies is having a Christmas challenge until July 27, and the prizes are phenomenal. I had to go dig out my holiday papers but found one that I liked with this image.  I colored the girl with copic markers, note she is standing on a die cut snowy hill and two small snowflakes in the air.  I used joy as my sentiment as this image just made me joyful.

July 15, 2020 Inspiration Palette



I had so much fun with this inspiration palette challenge this week.  We have a watermelon image 9010-H Watermelon and for my sentiment I choose to use
9013-D Chill Out.  I used a corner fold card - and decided to use a couple of fun colors for the watermelon, black gingham and red polka dot.  The sentiment went well with this image - as we always had watermelon on a hot day - my Dad had chilled the melon all day in a bucket of ice water.  I thought it needed just another fun embellishment so I tied a bow out of red and green gingham ribbon and held in place with a tiny black clothespin.  This card will be one that will have to be given in person on included in a package.

Challenges:
     Festive Friday - use 3 -
          green, embossed, ribbon
     Use your stuff - use something in your "stash"
     STAMPlorations - summer
     Double Trouble - Tic Tac Toe
     Unicorn Challenge - food or drink
