July 18, 2018 Inspiration Photo



This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge was to use the photo inspiration and/or colors.  I went with the colors - I had the idea already then went looking in my stash for some BG papers, nothing there so it just so happens that Hobby Lobby is less than 5 minutes from my house (not good) and when I saw this piece of designer I knew that was my choice.  And the best part it was 50% off!!!  I used 9304-L Martini glass and the sentiment 9505-E Happpy Hour.  Now I'm not a martini drinker - well maybe just one of the fancy ones like a lemon twist or an appletini but not the original.  Just give me the olive.  I colored my image with some spectrum glitter brushes and copics, fussy cut the glass and popped it up a bit.  Martinis are served on a coaster so the doily is my coaster.  This was a fun challenge and hope you enjoy. 

  Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Inspiration Photo/Colors  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. 

If you look on my right side bar I also have a discounted coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.
Now why not take a look at our DT Rock Stars for inspiration and to get you started.

July 11, 2018 Tic-Tac-Toe


This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Tic-Tac-Toe
challenge which has become one of my favorite challenges.  Lots of possibilities with this one.  I choose to go with food, fun fold and paper piecing. 

I used 7504-W Calories Flip Set as well as using the the flip fancy die set
 Die Set  to add some dimension as well as with this die set there is no guess work, you know everything is going to be cut to size and work as it should to make a waterfall card. 

I had some cute DP that my friend Sally had given me and I made great use of the bananas print to go with the banana split card.  This is such a fun card to make.  They were very popular a few years ago but in my book they have made a fun comeback.

July 4, 2018 Designer Choice


Happy 4th of July to everyone - hope you are enjoying some time off with friends and family. 

This week is our designer choice and our designer Heather has chosen for us to do The Great Outdoors at The House that Stamps Built.  I thought this scene depicted pure pleasure and relaxation, using the stamp 2905-G Canoeing as well as the pretty 2722-I Cattails, and pairing this scene up with the sentiment
6526-E Simple Pleasures.  I used some oxide distress inks to make my background -   so easy to blend, and put a moon in the sky so it looks like he is going for an early moonlight canoe ride. 

Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  The Great Outdoors,   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.

June 27, 2018 Anything Goes



This is the last week of the month over at The House that Stamps Built  so our challenge is Anything Goes, which is my second favorite challenge - second only to the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  I had been playing with my stencils and had used a gear stencil for the background - I also had some gear die cuts that went perfect with the background - and then I thought 9120-M Harley and the sentiment 9108-G Born to be Wild were the perfect image to use.  I have been "eyeing" the Harley for a while and I finally decided it needed to be in my Repeat Impressions collection.  I embossed the Harley in black embossing powder and then fussy cut it.  


Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Anything Goes. The sky is the limit with this challenge you can see there are a lot of possibilities .  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.

June 22, 2018 - Tulips


Love the Tulips from SU - in fact have used them in several cards lately - and I think they have been discontinued.  But that doesn't mean I won't continue to use them.  The basket is kraft cardstock using the basket weave embossing folder for the basket.  You're awesome is an Amuse sentiment stamp but it just fit on the basket.  Another one to add to my Chemo Angels basket.

June 20, 2018 Inspiration Challenge




This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge was to use either the picture and/or colors to make our creation.  I choose to use the beautiful rose wreath 101-P Rose Heart Wreath - coloring the roses yellow - for the sentiment banner I used 1807-F I'm so glad which I stamped and embossed on vellum - then after punching out the sentiment I curled it a bit with a pencil and using some pretty yellow glitter dots held it in place across the wreath.  I use some water color blue which I watered down and flocked on with a paint brush. 

Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Inspiration Palette.  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.

June 15, 2018 Rose


Another beautiful magazine addition a couple of months ago - this is a three part die from Altenew which I think is so pretty.  I didn't put a sentiment on this card as it is one that I will add the sentiment for the occasion. It all goes together so beautifully - and with the pink doily it works perfect.
