November 15, 2017 Inspiration Challenge



This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is the inspiration photo shown above. I saw glitter, pinks/purples, Christmas so I went with the
Snowflakes - 8805K and stamped them random over my white cardstock.  Then I used three shade of the new oxide inks and blended them together, needed some glitter so spritzed with gold dust spray - then hmmm...still needed some more gold so used Nuvo dots in the center of the snowflakes.  Mounted on some gold glitter cardstock then on some gold shimmer cardstock for my card base. 

Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Tic Tac Toe  - as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You know have a full month to enter our challenges to win.
You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice in the drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions. 
If you look on my right side bar I also have a discount coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.
Now - take a look at what our design team has made to get you started.

November 8, 2017 Thanks


This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is theTic-Tac-Toe challenge and this is one of my favorite challenges. I chose to go with leaves, stitching (faux) with die cut, and sponging.  
My daughters was diagnosed with throat cancer about 3 weeks ago - he is undergoing daily radiation and weekly chemo and so far besides the brutal treatments he is doing ok.  Sometimes the cure is as bad or worse than the disease.
They have had an outpouring of love from their church, neighbors, and friends providing meals, gifts, cards, and prayers.  My daughter asked me to make her some thank you cards that she could send out so I decided to use a fall theme and fall colors.   I used Falling Leaves 3306-I and for the Thanks -  Plate 10000 which has a great selection of words to go with thanks. I choose to use Thanks for your kindness.  Using my Misti I was able to mass produce several of this card.  
We are going to go see her next weekend so I will take them with me along with a couple of books of stamps.

November 5, 2017 Thank You Cards



A month ago my son in law (daughter's husband) went to the doctor with a "sore throat" and within two hours was diagnosed with tonsil cancer - stage 4.  Rare cancer - but treatment started within a week - 7 weeks of radiation to the neck and weekly chemo treatments.  Brutal treatments - but he continues to have lots of faith and is doing fairly well.  Is only able to swallow liquids after 3 weeks of radiation but at least still getting nutrition.  
The outpouring of love and support from their church, friends, and neighbors has been unbelievable.  Daughter wanted me to make her some thank you cards to send out so I made her 6 of each of 5 designs.  (the fifth design will be on my blog this Wednesday).  I chose to go with a Faith, Friends type card vs. a typical thank you card.  Kept them very simple.  The cards, envelopes, and a book of stamps is ready to go in the mail tomorrow.

November 1, 2017 Christmas Colors House of Cards




* Note- this is second post of the day.

What a fun challenge this month over at the House of Cards   I used the holiday colors vs. the photo inspiration.  I have had so much fun with this stamp set from Stampendous (special edition from Michaels).  Pick up trucks are "big" this Christmas and to fill it with presents even more fun.  I made my snow bank using some chunky glitter paper, truck and presents stamped, die cut and presents paper pieced.  Love the sentiment that comes with set as well.
Hope you enjoy and will enter our challenge which  runs all month.

November 1, 2017 - Falling For You

This month over at The House that Stamps Built our Rock Star Laurie chose the theme of Falling for You.  I decided to go outside of the box a little on this one and made a big tag using 5110-J Oak Leaf Silhouette and 3103-F Live for .

For some reason my photo does not show the beautiful colors of the leaves which I did applying the ink with a sponge finger dauber.  I did the same for the sentiment and then added some orange splatters for a little added color.  I had some pretty autumn ribbon, a big orange eyelet and some orange twine to finish off the ribbon embellishment. 



 Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge of Falling for You.  - as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You know have a full month to enter our challenges to win.

October 25, 2017 - Anything Goes

This week at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Anything Goes.  
I have been seeing "bridge cards" on different sites on the internet and just had to try one, easy easy - and I think these stamps Sweet Dreams Puppy 1022-L - and 2112D Sleigh Ride Silhouette and the Christmas 1141-F.  I stamped the sweet dreams puppy with memento ink and colored and blended with prisma pencils.  I paper pieced his red hat and white fur trim out of velvet paper.  Give it a great texture.  I used some scraps of Christmas DP for my bg papers and the sentiment was stamped in Memento.  Looks like the puppy is dreaming of Santa coming to visit him. 


 Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge of Anything Goes  - as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You know have a full month to enter our challenges to win.

October 18, 2017 Photo Inspiration



This week over at The House that Stamps Built  our challenge is to use the photo inspiration or colors.  I choose to go with the colors and made a fall card.  I enjoy sending fall/seasonal cards to my chemo/senior buddies vs. Halloween cards.  For this card I used Round Pumpkin 2318-G.  I kept it simple and used three colors of white core cardstock embossed with 3 different embossing folders and used the pumpkin as my focal point.  A bit of twine around the middle and script letters die cut using the same oranges I used to color the pumpkin.  All of this mounted on a dark green card base.
