October 10, 2018 Tic Tac Toe



October is upon us although we had temps in the 80's last week.  Time to make a couple of Halloween cards - I sent them to the grands, and to my chemo buddies, with a few goodies for their sweet tooth. 
This week over at The House that Stamps Built  is one of my favorite challenges - Tic-Tac-Toe.  I went from top left corner diagonal to bottom left, perfect for my kiddos.   I used 2307E Trick or Treat Ghost and 2316G BOO for my stamps.  I used a stitched frame that my friend die cut for me and it worked perfect for this card.  The three little ghosts in the bottom frames just fit the space and in the upper opening I stamped three BOO's.  Added a little pop to not only the BOO's but the ghosts as well with some little google eyes.  When the challenge said black and one other color I really wasn't sure if white is classified as a color so I used 4 enamel dots one on each corner for my one other color. 

Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of Tic-Tac-Toe 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.

October 3, 2018 Designer Choice

This week over at The House that Stamps Built  it is my turn for Designer Choice and I choose "It's up in the Air - anything that flies.  Lots of possibilities for this challenge.



When I choose this challenge I already had something in mind BUT - totally changed my mind and went with this darling stork 4218-K Stork and for the sentiment I went with 4116-F New Arrival.

I "borrowed" my friends city scape die - and that is where the stork is going to make the deliver.  I colored the stork with copic markers, then die cut some clouds for the sky.  I really like the way this turned out.  The stork recently paid a visit to our family - grand daughter had our third great grand baby a precious boy named Mason James.  So their family of three children is now complete and of course Grandma Hotop loves them all.

September 26, 2018 Anything Goes





This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Anything Goes - anything you want to make.

I have been surfing Pinterest and found a couple of new designs and this one is the impossible card - which is really a fun "twist" card.  Easy to make if you follow the direction.  I had this pretty DP with the purple flowers so I decided to build my card around the purple.

I used 1706-I Wild Violets    1113-D Birthday  and 3916-F CelebratingYou

This card folds flat for mailing but the center focal point stands up when taken out and can be sat on the table, shelf for viewing.  These are so much fun to make and can be adapted to any size card.  (May have to do a tutorial my next POTW).  There is room on the back of the folded pop up center to write a short message and sign your name. 

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.

September 19, 2018 Inspiration Chalenge



This weeks challenge over at The House that Stamps Built  was the inspiration photo which is fallish, and friendship so I combined the two themes.  The stamps I used:  9303-P Thanks a Latte  9311-E Bean a Friend  5130-FSunflower Sil. Layer and as a little fill in 8726-I Swirl background.

I'm not sure what this design is called but saw it on Pinterest and copied the design.  Below you will see the inside of the card.

I embossed the sunflower on the coffee cup, and colored in the coffee.  Used some green twine and some pretty little green pearls to bling it up a bit. 
Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Inspiration Photo 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.

September 12, 2018 Tic Tac Toe



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

I choose to Sympathy, Ribbon, and Sponging, using the following stamps,


I have a lot of friends who are total dog lovers - me included and there are times I have to make sympathy cards which is difficult.  I choose this happy puppy so they might remember their fur baby as happy. I sponged distress oxide inks on his - then fussy cut him out and place him n a layer in which I had cut out a heart.  I had some dog paw print ribbon and a pretty little charm that says Best Friend.  . I embossed my Kraft layer with a dog paw embossing folder.  I'm rethinking this now and wondering if maybe I should have colored the tongue darker or a pink tone, but left it as is.  

 Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Tic Tac Toe 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.

September 7,2018 Congrats


Found out a few weeks ago that my grand daughters brother and his wife are pregnant with twins.  Well anyone who has been around for a while and was a TAC angel remembers this stamp. It has been well loved and taken care of as I use her quiet often. Has some really cute images as well as sentiments.  This will be one I won't get rid of for sure.  And they are expecting twins and guess what I kept the twins stamp set also from TAC.  Oh the memories.

September 5, 2018 - Happy Anniversary


Wow - September - the summer has gone so quickly - in a couple more weeks will be seeing the leaves will start turning.  We live in the woods so fall is always a favorite time of the year. 
This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is designer choice - and our rock star is Laurie.  Her choice was to make an anniversary card. 

I knew instantly I needed some more anniversary stamps (on my next order) so I went with what I had available and I think it turned out fine.  The stamps I used
were 10401-O large dotted rectangle frame, 2508I To Those  1218H Heart Balloons. 
I had a scrap - just enough -for my background DP, so I embossed the rectangle in silver to use as my focal point.  - using my Misti I put the sentiment in the center and embossed with silver then placed a heart balloon on each side of the sentiment - again embossed in silver - thinking it still needed just a bit of bling I used a single bling on each balloon then tied some fine silver cord n a small bow and placed it on the string.
 Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Anniversary - 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.
