The House that Stamps Built - Mono tone challenge

 This last week in March over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is to make a mono tone card.  I decided to go with all greens - signs of spring - 


I used 7202W Tree Flip Set  and I used the square die from  Flip Dies.  I had purchased a full A2 size card die a little while back from a local (35 miles) stamp store and I have enjoyed playing around with it.  I went with an all green palate for my colors - stamping each season of tree in different shades of green.  Die cut them with the round corner doe in flip dies and mounted them on each corner of the die cut, I did pop dot each of the four images.  In the middle I used the sentiment which I love, and stenciled some leaves in the center.  Added a few green splatters some green bling and card done.

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

Anything Goes

 This week over at The House that Stamps Built it is the 4th Wednesday in the month - and that means Anything Goes.  I choose to do a spring card:


Last year I got kites for the grand kids and they loved them so I thought I would go with a spring theme for my anything goes 

 I used 4511-I Kite  and for my sentiment I used 1301-F Happy Spring which I cut apart and stacked the words. 

I had a very unique and fun cloud stencil which I used to make the clouds in various shades of blue.  The kites were stamped and then paper pieced with the same plaid paper I used in my background.  Plaid is "in" this year and this plaid was from a pad of All Seasons paper.  I left it very simple as I like the layout and the kites really stood out.

The House that Stamps Built Slim Line Challenge

 This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is to do a slimline card.  Well I did a "mini" slim line - the folded size is 3 1/2 by 6.  


  My blending brushes were sitting in my rolling card beside my card sI grabbed a couple and some distress oxide inks.  I used a piece of surgical paper tape (low tack) and went from corner to corner then blended the left side of my card.  I moved the tape to cover what I had blended and I blended the right side of my card in reverse order.  I then used 102-F Dragonfly and 4405-K Dragonfly Deco and stamped in black versafine ink.  I had room at the right top for my sentiment so I used 8617-E Learn.  I had just a very narrow line of white from corner to corner where I had taped off and I used some very narrow glitter washi tape and thought it worked very nicely to finish off the card.  

I then decided to make an envelope since I had everything out, so using my envelope punch board I made an envelope and used my blending brushes to color the envelope like the card.  Since I didn't want to put glitter tape on the envelope I used a pretty blue gel ink pen to accent the envelope.  

 

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

Fun Fold Challenge

 This week at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is do do a Fun Fold.  Here is mine.  


I'm not sure what this fold is called but I have had so much fun making these cards.  The secret is to use s template triangle that is 3 1/2 x 2 1/4.  I choose to go with a birthday card as I have a great niece that is turning 2 in a couple of weeks so I used 8606-E Happy Birthday  then die cut a variety of balloons to use on the front fold in various bright colors. Now for the surprise open the card up and 1603-K Bouquet Bear  which I colored with copics, fussy cut her out - (I used a plain white cardstock back when I cut her out so the copics wouldn't show through.  I then glued just the bottom half of her on the fun fold so she would pop up when opened.  For the sentiment I used 1918-F Beary Special and place a small balloon over an "oopsie". 
I think this might be called an angled corner fold - but anyway it works for not only girl cards, but masculine as well as kids.   

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