The House that Stamps Built - Feature a Creature

 This week over at  The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Feature a Creature.  Well my creature selection is 4216-M Gray Wolf and for my  sentiment I chose a Born to Be Wild 9108-G with a bit of an alteration.  I just wanted the first line of the stamp so I carefully cut just that part from the second line.  This is the beauty of rubber stamps.  


I stamped and heat embossed the wolf in black embossing powder and colored with copic markers.  Love how some of the fur looks brown although I used the same gray throughout.  I mounted him on two ovals - as you can see this design paper had large check on the front and small check on the back.  Used a little different fold in this one, the bottom of the ovals lift up for you to put a note and signature inside.  Again simple as I try to go with simple on my male cards.  

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

The House that Stamps Built- THINK PINK

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Think Pink, whether it be breast cancer related, or just a pretty pink card.  I choose to go with breast cancer as I send out a lot of chemo angel cards and always in  need of an inspirational  beast cancer theme.  


 I kept my card rather simple using some pretty pink floral design paper on a pink card base.  I have a cancer ribbon die so I die cut 3 and stacked them on top of each other for a little added height.  Some pretty pink punched glittered butterflies were next.  For my sentiment I used 8409-E Inspiration keeping my card along the simple theme.  Thought it needed a little something extra so I used a punch on the bottom of my pink floral paper and laced some pink and white bakers twine and tied a bow.  

Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of Think Pink 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 Think Pink

The House that Stamps Built - CAS

 The last week in September already - the months are flying by.  I don't do CAS very well so this was truly a challenge for me over at The House that Stamps Built.  


This is about as clean and simple as they come from me.  I went with a cute stamp 4512-F Lg. Rubber Stamp and 1912-H So Many Stamps  which is so true in my case.  I have been going through "some" of my stamps and getting rid of the ones that I don't use anymore or that are retired.  

I used versafine black ink on both my stamp and sentiment - and then embossed with black embossing powder.  Really makes the stamp stand out.  I thought it still needed just a little something more so I went with a cute black/white check ribbon and tied a bow.  Card finished.  CAS!!!

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

Jeans Pocket with Frog

 Fun card I made for one of my chemo buddies, a young man that is 14 and I thought he would get a laugh out of this one.  A little snarky but fun.  



The frog stamps and die cuts are from Technique Tuesday - and he fits perfectly in the pocket of the jeans.  I don't remember who has the jeans pocket stamp as I took it off my wood mount.  I stamped the pocket on my base card in denim blue and then stamped it again on an extra white card stock.  I trimmed just the pocket and put it on the outside of the base card with scor-tape and put some rivets on  with Nuvo dots.  With using scor-tape on the pocket I can slip a gift card int the pocket and when he pulls the frog out the gift card is there.  I think he will enjoy this card with a gift card to Burger King.

The House that Stamps Built Outdoor Fun

 This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Outdoor fun.  Well I totally went out of the box on my thought process - and what is more outdoors than building a snowman??  I used 7301-W Snowman which is a series of 5 stamps called a flip set.  I went with a waterfall card - as it had been a while since I had made a waterfall card.  



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

Sparkle and Shine - The House that Stamps Built

 This challenge at The House that Stamps Built, was so much fun to create - I love sparkle, bling, shine - glitter, you name it I like it. 

Here is my take on this challenge - it has sparkle as well as shine.  


I started with selecting my DP which was dragonflies, I cut the DP at an angle and then used narrow glitter washi tape on both sides.  Went one step further and tied a pink gold sparkle trimmed ribbon around the middle of the DP.  We have such pretty Dragonflies I decided to use 4405-K Dragonfly Deco which I stamped with versamark and embossed the pretty butterfly in Egyptian gold embosing powder which has sparkle in the powder.  Now to pick a sentiment - as I sent so many chemo angel cards I chose - 6521-B Have Faith - again stamping with versamark and embossing with Egyptian gold powder.  I used a die to cut the sentiment and then cut another one out of gold, cut the gold piece in half and used pop dots to higlight the sentiment.    A few pretty sequins and the card is ready - will go out in the mail on Tuesday as we had several special requests this past week.  

Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of sparkle and shine .   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 sparkle and shine.

The House that Stamps Built - POTW Challenge

 First of all I want to wish everyone Happy Labor Day.  Fall is upcoming per the calendar, it is already September.  I am the POTW designer over at The House that Stamps Built  for this week and I cased a card done by one of our former design team Rock Stars Esther Ashberry.  Here is her card - 


I liked it so much that I asked her if I could "CASE" it - "Copy and share everything" and she said "sure".  So here is my take on her card.  


Would you like to see how I did this???  Well my main reason for trying this was I got a set of ZIG clean markers, they are watercolor pens and they are a lot of fun to work with.  I got a gift coupon for my birthday and this is what I spent it on.  


I used 3312-E Maple leaf   3314-D Birch Leaf   3313-E Oak Leaf   3311-C Acorn, stamped the images with black archival ink as I was going to water color them.  I chose a variety of Zig markers in fall colors and I colored my leaves and acorns.  


I die cut a tree out of vellum  with bare branches and then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist spray in coffee color.  



I die cut the word "blessings" in brown.


I did some random black splatters which I love to do, just adds a bit of character.  I then glued the tree and the word blessings on my main panel.  I layered it on dark brown and then my base card was kraft.  

Hope you enjoyed this POTW this week, and I enjoyed  being able to visit with our dear friend Esther and do my take on her card.

The House that Stamps Built Card and Decorated Envelope

 Wow had to turn the page to another month on my calendar, only 4 months left in 2021.  This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is to make a card and a matching envelope.  Below is my card and envelope.  


I had some bright and bold DP that I really didn't know what to do with - until I came up with this one.  I stamped two flowers on matching DP and fussy cut them - popping them up on the matching flower in the DP on my card.  I then decided to go with Plate 10100 - You Series - this set has a large bold YOU and then several sentiments that you can apply with this.  I went with make me smile - again I stamped them on the backside of the bold flowers DP and I fussy cut them and popped them up with some foam tape.  This was a fun and easy card to make and the envelope is decorated with the DP on the back flap.  This card is all ready to go out on Monday to a friend who just needs a pick me up.  

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

Tiger Birthday Card

 When I first saw this set  (Wild Cats) in the new SU catalog I put it on my wish list.  I knew it would make some cute boy birthday cards as well as masculine cards.  Here is the first card I made - for my great grandson who will turn 6 this Saturday.  I really like how it turned out.  


I stamped the tiger in fossilized Amber distress oxide ink - and I think it is a perfect color.  Then the stripes were stamped in black.  His face was stamped was stamped in black as well.  (There are two tigers in this set - two faces - and one set of stripe.).  I added a few extra stripes on his tail and legs.  The "have a wild birthday" is punched out with Tailored Tag and then the layer it is on was punched out with the same tag - cut in half and positioned behind the original sentiment.  I also got the Wil Cat embossing Folder but did not use it on this card.  I had some Echo Park 6 x 6 DP and thought this went so well with my card.  The tiger came with a die cut which was spot on in cutting.  I think my gret grandson (who will turn 6) will love his card.

New Neighbors

 We have new neighbors that recently moved into their beautiful newly built home.  I made a card using Taylored Expressions stamp/die, computer generated their address for the post sign, and then for my background paper I photo copied a map of our town marking their new address with a red bling.  


and on the inside I used another stamp from my collection made by Morning Star - again I have had this stamp a long time and it is perfect for new home owners.  


I made up a little gift bag with nuts, chocolate covered almonds and a fall candle to welcome them to our neighborhood.

The House that Stamps Built - Anything Goes

 This is the last Wednesday in August and over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Anything Goes. 

For my ATG card I made this:


 I made a book bind card - (so much fun), and for my focal image I decided to use 9611-H Lemon/Lime using some pretty lemon DP at Hobby Lobby which I had run through the embossing folder.  For my sentiment I used 9717-C A Happy Hello . I  like to match my card with the giftie as I sent my chemo buddy a tea towel and hot pad with lemons and a bag of lemon drops.  


I hope she enjoys her card and giftie.  When you are a chemo buddy you try to send small gifts weekly - this was easy to fold and put in a kraft 9 x 6 envelope.  Often it costs me more in postage than I spent on the giftie, but my goal is to bring a smile to my chemo buddy's face as she goes through difficult days.  

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

Summer Theme - The House that Stamps Built

 Oh WOW where has summer gone - we are in the dog days of summer here in southern Missouri - but in just a few short weeks we will start feeling cooler fall breezes.  This week at The House that Stamps Built our challenge was summer.  Talk about possibilities - but I finally decided to go with:


Sandcastle 9016-M to go with my "beachy" DP I had in my stash.  I die cut the sandcastle as well as an extra layer to mount it on and made a gate fold card.

For the inside : I used 2407-G Life's a Beach  and added a couple of small die cut sea shells.  My grandkids went to the beach this summer so I think this card will go to them.  


Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of Summer 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 Summer

The House that Stamps Built - Anything but a Card

 This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Anything but a card.  Here is what I made



 
I used some hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works that I picked up on sale.  These make cute little gifties to put in my chemo buddy packages but they needed to be dressed up a bit so I made a holder for them.  I used some fall papers on my box, then die cut an acorn and popped it upon front.  I then made a bitty tag and stamped 3311-C Acorn and 3601-I Falling leaves on a separate piece of card stock, colored them with copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I glued the leaf down and used pop dots on the acorns to apply to the small tag.  Used some brown/white bakers twine to attach the tag  This makes a fun presentation vs. just the bottle of sanitizer.

The House that StampsBuilt - use a tag on your card

 This first Wednesday in August at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is to use a tag on a card.  I have been seeing some mixed media cards and thought I would try one, although not my usual style.  


I took a manila tag from my stash and used Tim Holtz crayons I laid down a couple of colors - I then smoothed them out using a baby wipe.  I then stamped my focal image 8120-K Scruffy Puppy and sentiment 8117-E A Dog loves You.  I then used a stencil of just dots and did a bit of stenciling on my tag, then used an embossing folder and ran it through my embossing machine.  Added some dog paw print ribbon and a dog paw print charm tied on with bakers twine.  Used some pretty plaid papers as well as another DP that has dog sentiments.  I poped up my tag on pop dots.  Fun card to make. 

 Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of Christmas in July.

POTW Childs Birthday Card

 My turn  on The House that Stamps Built for the project for this week.  My dear granddaughter loves handmade cards so for her birthday I made her twenty assorted cards, with envelopes and stamps.  She said that was her favorite gift.  Well a couple of weeks ago we went to great grandsons 3rd birthday party.  So dear grand daughter requested more cards - this time kids birthday cards.  From the number of kids (ages 1 to 14) that were there I need to make about 30.  So I started with this one.  

My dear friend and I had been shopping a couple of weeks ago at a new stamping store in quaint St. Charles, MO. Main street.  When I saw the ice cream paper I knew it was coming home with me.  So lets gather supplies.


The base of the card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 - just a single layer, then I cut the designer paper 5 1/4 by 4.  I used an old standby die set that I have had for a really  long time.  I used 4 different sizes of this die.  

This layer was cut on folded cardstock so the card could be opened.  Place the die just beyond the fold before you cut.  Next I cut out the top 2 pieces - these are just single layer.


I then stamped and fussy cut 9008-N Cool Treats.  It is 3 cool ice cream images on one stamp but I cut it apart and use them individually or I can place them back together and stamp all three.  This is the beauty of rubber stamps - a lot of them can be altered to fit your need.  I only used the ice cream cone.  I stamped the image on white and then just the cone on a pattern paper.  

 I fussy cut the image from white and colored the ice cream in pinks with copic markers, then I cut just the waffle cone and paper pieced it on the cone portion of the image.  



I popped the cone up on pop dots and place a bit of bling on top of the ice cream.  As this is going to be a birthday card I stamped 8606-E Happy Birthday on pattern paper and used the smallest die in the set to cut it out and pop it up on pop dots.  

Here is how the card opens and the saying on the inside. I used 9313-D Sweet


I plan on working later this week on more birthday cards for her collection - we have some really great stamps to use for kids birthday.  Come join me in the future to see what else I come up with for kids birthday.  

If you have kids birthday cards to make look through your Repeat Impressions Stamps - what a nice selection.

The House that Stamps Built - Anything Goes

This last Wednesday of July - our challenge over at The House That Stamps Built.  Well usually I don't have any problem with coming up with something for this challenge.  But .... here is my card


Dear granddaughter wanted me to make her a card using a fairy.  Well Repeat Impressions has a really cute fairy and decided to go with her as my focal image 4301-K Fairy's Lantern.  I used 3104-F Happy Everything.  This card kept evolving with glitter, die cut, vellum wings and vellum lantern,  gold splatters and yet it still needed something - so two gold glitter strips one at the top and one at the bottom.  But finally I said "done".  

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

Christmas in July - The House that Stamps Built

 This challenge is always one of my favorite in the summer at The House that Stamps Built .  Christmas in July, I seldom start on Christmas cards in July but at least I know I have one ready.  


I had a different idea in my head when I started and this is what evolved.  I'm thinking someone I know might get a new puppy for Christmas (no names mentioned).  I used 8120-K Scruffy Puppy 8103-C WOOF as well as 1141-F Merry Christmas and 4818-J and 4519-H Gift box and gift box top.

I paper pieced the box with some holiday paper as well as the strips and bow on the box.  I colored the puppy with copic markers and fussy cut him out.  I carefully cut a slit in the box for puppy to slip through and I pushed him through to where just the head and chest are showing  I used a speech bubble punch for my Woof and Merry Christmas sentiment with a bit of bling.  

Now it is your turn to make a card or project using the challenge of Christmas in July.

Mason's Birthday Card

 Today our cute little redhead will celebrate his 3rd birthday although his birthday was a couple of days ago.  He is into tractors and farming, just like his big brother Carter.  Only fitting that I make him a tractor birthday card from Great grandma and great grandpa.  


This depicts life on their country farm, although Dad just helps out around the farm as he has a full time job.  The stamps are from Newtons Nook Farming Fun and has 4 cute tractor images as well as a pickup truck, and wagon.  I made some rolling hills - and put the tractors on the bottom - filled up the wagon with corn ears from SU dies, the corn plants and sign are also from SU.  The dog die is one I had in my stash but looks like their black lab farm dog Piper.  Got him a farm puzzle,  a farm sticker book and will put some money in the card.  Hope to get some cute pictures

The House that Stamps Built - Use Pattern Paper

 This week our challenge at The House that Stamps Built is to use pattern paper and this challenge came at the right time as I needed a 60th birthday card.  


Perfect for the toilet tissue pattern paper that I had in my digi files.  I made a mini slim card so I could get all the fun focal images in place.  I   used 1601-I Holy Crap, 10631-J Plunger and 10632-I Toilet Tissue and 10633-K Toilet.  Just did a bit of shading with grays on the toilet and toilet tissue and colored the plunger with copic markers.  This turned out just like I was hoping and I hope the SIL get a laugh.  

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

The House that Stamps Built - Use a Stencil

 Hope everyone had a nice July 4th.  We bar-b-qued and just relaxed here at home.  

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is to use a stencil on our project.  


I did use a stencil on this card design, but I was playing around with my gel press and Donna  suggested I use a stencil on what ink I had left on my gel press.  Well this turned out to my liking.  I used 2614-D, 2616-D, and 2617-D, all Tiny Birds.  I thought the birds went with the feather stencil - I colored them in with colored pencil and low odor mineral spirits.  I decided to make it a birthday card and used the 1904-I A Special Wish sentiment.  Iwante to get all of the stenciling in so I made a square card, which will cost more postage, but I don't make very many square cards.

Pet Sympathy Card

 These are the cards that just pull at your heart strings when you make them.  


This is a combination of several dies and stamps including Repeat Impressions scenic in which I just used the bridge - SU for the sentiment, Martha Stewart for the hearts, Amuse for the clouds.  I did my own spin on a CASE that I really liked from Pinterest.  I found this poem which I included with the card. You will need a tissue to wipe the tears.  


I hope this brought a bit of comfort to my friends.

Potw - Sympathy Card - The House that Stamps Built

 Is it really June 28th???  This month has gone so quickly.  I am up for the POTW over at The House that Stamps Built today.   Unfortunately I have needed 4 sympathy cards this month. Sympathy cards are a challenge to make when you actually need them - so I made a couple of CAS up ahead so I would have them in my stash.   

I seldom do a CAS card but this one came together pretty quickly.  Supplies:


I choose three different colors of pinks in distress oxide inks.  For my stamps I used 1505-N Rose Border and 4025-F Deepest Sympathy .


Using a piece of torn copy paper to block off the bottom of the card I applied distress inks on top using a blending brush.  Oxide inks blend so nicely.  


After applying the distress inks I used my Misti stamp positioner and versafine ink to stamp the image as well as the sentiment on the cardstock.  



By using the stamp positioner if there were any light areas I could reink and go over and know that I was in the same spot.  


I decided to stamp the rose border again and cut out two of the roses to use on each side of With Deepest sympathy.  


I added a narrow layer of black and then used white for my card base.  No bling no ribbon just a CAS Sympathy card that I hope I don't have to use for a while.

The House that Stamps Built - Challenge - Scene

 Where has June gone???  It is already the 23rd and the challenge over at The House that Stamps Built  is to create a card with a scene.  

I guess I was in a "beachy" mood as that was the first thing that came to mind for this challenge.  


For this card I used 2408-N Large Palm Trees on a sandy beach with some big fluffy clouds in the backgound.  I used a die cut of a comfy beachy chair and of course you have to have a cold drink.  For my sentiment I used 3103-F Live For.  This can be used for a retirement card, just because or thinking of you.

The House that Stamps Built - Black/White Challenge

 June is more than half over already - things are returning back to normal and I am getting back into "going out".  This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is black/white card.  For my card I selected a LOVE card.


I had some "new" dies - and this one with hearts gave me the idea of LOVE.  Using 1204-I LOVE.  I embossed the LOVE stamp in white on black - two tiny hearts one in white and one in black (I colored a white one with a black Sharpie).  I used pop dots to pop up the center panel and easy peasy card.

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.
