August 14, 2019 Tic Tac Toe Challenge

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Tic Tac Toe which I usually love - this time I struggled just a bit figuring out what I was going yo do.
Here is my creation:

and here is out Tic Tac Toe challenge
  I chose Left column down - my dimension is my gold glittered sea horse die.
I used 2423-L Under the Sea and 9720-C Big Wish on this card.  I sponged my die cut with blues and then stamped my Under the Sea, I hadsome "waves" DP in my stash that I knew I would use at some point - so that was my layer.   I mounted my focal image on navy card stock die cut then popped up the gold glitter sea horse on the bottom right of the frame.  I love the sentiment on this card - can be used for more than just birthday.

August 7, 2017 Try New Technique Challenge

It is August - the other night on one of the late night comedy show - they did a skit on "can you believe it is August".  It was really funny and a lot of people say it - Can it really be August.
For our challenge this week out designer Rock Star Esther asked us to "Try a New Technique".  What fun.  I spend a few (ok more than a few) minutes on Pinterest and found one that looked like fun, and it was.  I chose to do the rubber band technique - which you can either do on an acrylic or your brayer using different width rubber bands.  Here is what I came up with.

I used a K Pad for my ink source in pastels, I took my roller off my brayer and wrapped - 4 different size width rubber bands around my roller, reattached and inked up the brayer with inks,then going in one direction only I went across my focal image.  Was it fun YES.  I'm thinking some Christmas cards using this technique.  I put gold glitter strips on each side of my rubberband focal image and then choose 5125-C Dragonfly Sil. small in different colors to match my focal center.  I stamped this image on both sides.  Then I was needing a Birthday card for a friend and used 6104-J Birthday Vertical.  I scattered some small colored sequins here and there and card was complete -  quick and easy.

July 31, 2019 Sketch Challenge


This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is the sketch challenge pictured below:



I got this cute cute owl image with my last order 2613-H Baby Owl.  We live in the "woods" and often at night when we let the dogs out for the final time at night we will hear the owls communicating.  

and here is my card for the sketch challenge.  I went with all grey color pallet and decided I needed a bit of color so it would pop, so I found a zip lock bag of feathers and used a pretty bright red feather and red enamel dots to finish off my card.

July 27, 2019 Birthday Boy

 July 16 was great grandson Mason's 1st birthday and the theme was Mickey Mouse.  I did some searching on Pinterest and came up with this one.

All you need are some circles and a bit of bakers twine for the focal image.  I then cut out his name with SU large alphabet dies (retired) and stamped It's your Day (SU).  Easy Peasy .

July 24, 2019 Anything Goes


This week over at The House that Stamps Built it is Anything Goes - one of my favorite weeks. 


This really came about quite by accident as  I was cleaning off my "trashed" desk and found these beautiful flowers - 10301-H Patti's flower solid   already stamped and all that was needed was to stamp a couple of leaves 10318-D Leaf solid large and then fussy cut them out.  Now I am one who really hates to throw away something I might use later so it was a pleasant surprise when I found these.  As I was cleaning up my work space I looked up on the shelf above my desk and saw washi tape - and my card came together.  Don't use my washi tape enough - as I really like how this simple card came together.  For my sentiment I used 6512-E Everyday Blessings.  I popped up my flowers with a pop dot and then glued the leaf under the flower.  Very easy but I really like the finished card.

July 22, 2019 POTW coloring with pigment ink

This week over at The House that Stamps Built  it is my turn to do a fun way to color in images, using pigment ink.

The supplies are something we probably all have in our "stuff" - versamark, white pigment ink, a blender pen, and white embossing powder.


I stamped and embossed 10202-Q Flower Power Frame with Versa-Mark and white sparkle embossing powder.


Now the fun part, on an acrylic block, or on your glass stamping mat apply the pigment ink by just turning the ink pad over and stamping on the block.  I then spritzed it with just a "little" water and picked up the color off of the block with a colorless blender pen.  This works best on a bright or darker color card stock.  The coloring almost looks translucent with the embossing detail still present.


After I let it dry and it only takes a few minutes I picked a sentiment to put inside the bouquet of flowers.  I choose 8708-E Sending Smile   as I send a lot of general thinking of you and encouragement cards.


To finish my card I added a pale yellow ribbon with bow and scattered a few sparkle sequins around.  My picture just didn't photograph well to show the real sparkle in the card - and as it was raining outside I was limited to an inside shot on this.

Hope you enjoy this POTW - try it on many different images that are available at Repeat Impressions.

July 17, 2019 - Inspiration Challenge

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is an Inspiration picture, follow the picture or colors either one works.

  I did a pink and yellow theme using 9013D Chill out and 9008N Cool Treats 
I often cut my stamps apart - (no sin there) for more versatility.  I just used the ice cream bar for my card.  I colored 3 bars, 2 pink and 1 yellow with copic markers.  Then mounted on a pink gingham circle and that circle on a yellow gingham circle.  I dug in my "special" fancy embellishments box and found the circle of bling and it just fit.  I cut my sentiment apart as well for more balance on this card.  Already sent this card out to my grand babies with some $$$ for the treat shack at the water park.
