Fun Fold - The House that Stamps Built

 This week over at  The House that Stamps Built our challenge is: A Fun Fold.  Now if you don't already know I LOVE fun folds.  I'm not sure if this card really qualifies as a fun fold but.... it was fun to make and it has many fun folds.  


This is a cube card that we did a few weeks at a get together with out friend Patti.  Once you make one - it is really not that difficult.  I have only used a simple sediment on this card Thinking of You - 1105-E as it is really a card that only requires a simple sentiment.  I made a baby card last week using this same design and it was the hit of the baby shower.  

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

Masculine Card - The House that Stamps Built

 Oh WOW - it is June already - had a cool - no cold Memorial day weekend - yes the furnace actually kicked on.  

Our challenge this week over at The House that Stamps Built  is a masculine card.  Since I already had my Father's Day cad made I went with a masculine birthday card.  


What a fun card - especially when most of my friends are now reaching the over the hill age.  I used 9119-K Corvette for my focal image and for my sentiment I used 3901-I Over the Hill.  I have had the mechanical wheels for a long time and just don't find a lot of use for them - except in masculine cards.  I die cut them out and scattered them on the front of the card.  Then I went through my stencils and what do I find - a stencil - with the same cogs and wheels.  Worked out so well.  

Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of masculine or boy. 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 masculine or boy card.

Embossed challenge - Wet or Dry The House that Stamps Built.

 This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is to make a project using either wet or dry embossing or both.  I choose to do both.  


I went with a Cuttlebug embossing folder of Happy Birthday for my dry embossing and then I used 7207-W Cake flip Set and just used the last cake stamp as my focal image.  I cut a frame to go around the focal image using some fun confetti birthday papers and then I made a frame around the whole card.  I enjoy using the flip sets as individual stamps.

May 24, 2021 Favorites The House that Stamps Built

 It is my turn to post over at The House that Stamps Built  a Monday favorite - well I couldn't pick just one favorite so I narrowed it down to one - in fact how about three???

I truly can't remember the date that I became part of the Repeat Impressions DT - but I do remember the panic I felt that I wouldn't be good enough to be a part of this talented DT.  Well that was a few years ago and I am still designing and I hope that, Wendy,  our owner of Repeat Impressions has seen some improvement along the way.  

I remember in my first order of stamps I received 8101-L Bulldog as I already had an idea in mind.  

And I think it is still "one" of my favorite cards.  

Favorite#2




When I first started working with Repeat Impressions Stamps I was immediately drawn to the collection of Teddy Bears.  This one is so much fun to work with - - 701-K Belle, paired with the sentiment 1105-E Thinking of You.  

And for my final favorite #3 is:


which is a fun bit snarky congrats card.  I used 10632-I Toilet Tissue and for the sentiment I used a combination of two - 10609-F Married and 10618-K Taking the plunge .  I had some digi print toilet tissue paper in my stash and then went with the over/under  roll and die cut letters his/her.  

I said I would limit it to three but that doesn't even begin to cover all of my favorites.  Such a broad selection to choose from with Repeat Impressions Stamps that I am never at a loss for what to create.

Baby Shower Card

 I attended a baby shower last weekend - and I just learned how to make the cube card (thanks Patti), so here is the card I made to go with my gift.   



This is really a fun card to put together - (if you follow instructions),, and can be adapted to any occasion.  I wanted the cube to look like baby blocks - and after I finished the card I realized I had letters that would have probably looked like real baby blocks but theses were already glued on.  On the back I die cut and embossed a baby giraffe and used two tiny eyes. I put my sentiment on the long side of the cube as did my giraffe.  Then I die cut letters of the baby's name which will be Hunter.  I got a lot of oo's and ahhh's.  Included an Amazon gift card that I printed off here at home and gift and card complete.

The Birds and the Bees Challenge The House that Stamps Built

 This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is The Birds and or Bees.  I choose to go with the Bee theme.  


This is an open book easel card that I had watched a video on a couple of weeks ago.  I had an "older" set of Spellbinders dies and that is what I used on this card. It is very easy to replicate without the dies.  I used 9308-C Bee  and 9312-D Just Bee-Cause  as my first page of my open book.  I had some bee papers in my stash which worked perfect for this card and as my easel stop I used some wooden bees that were in my stash as well.  Since I have made this card I have made a couple more open book easel card as they are so much fun to make.  

Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of The Birds and the Bees 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 The Birds and the Bees.

Miss You

 A couple of weeks ago a friend came over for a craft and play date - she really pampered my doggies so I sent her a card to let her know of their appreciation.  They got extra hugs, attention, and treats.  Here is the card.  






I love this fold - so fun and easy to make as well.  If you can read any of this - yes my oldest dog CoCo had a bit of a gas problem well ok a horrible gas problem, so bad in fact that we kept the room spray sitting on our work table.  
My friend got her card and got quite a chuckle out of it.  This set from SU Pampered Pets was just what I needed to make this card.
