July 19, 2017 Photo Inspiration

This week over at the House that Stamps Built our challenge was the photo below:




And here is my take on this challenge.  I didn't realize that it is very similar to the scene card that I created last week BUT - this time I used REAL Sand as my beach.  I had spray adhesive after masking off the top of the card and I had some sand that I was originally going to make a shaker card but didn't.  For this card I used Happy Summer 9003-E I cut the words apart for a little more versatility and made it into a banner.  I then used the darling Flip Flops 8719-G and then the Small Starfish 4111-F .  I sponged some "new" oxide inks to create the water and sky - love these new inks - they blend so nicely.  

Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge theme of  the photo/or colors challenges.  the possibilities are endless for this challenge so hope to see lots of entries.

July 12, 2017 TicTacToe Challenge

This week at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is TicTacToe - and I love this challenge.  Below is out challenge in the TicTacToe



I choose to go with polka dots, paper piecing and stitching - (I used a die with faux stitching).  I love this stamp - Cool Treats 9008-N and the saying is 
Sweet Things 9007-E.  The Cool Treats comes with two ice cream bars and the ice cream cone, I cut the images apart for more versatility and made a three dip ice cream cone.  There is no way I could eat a three dipper but looks good!!!

Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge theme of TicTacToe  - the possibilities are endless for this challenge so hope to see lots of entries.

July 5, 2017 Make a Scene


This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is designers choice which was Make a Scene.  When I think of July I think of being on the beach in flip flops 8719-G ,Sandcastle 9016-M Sand Castle, and Starfish 4111-F.  My grandkids were going to FL. so I send them a little spending money and made them the card to tell them to have fun in the sun and the sand castle and flip flops were perfect.  I used torn sandpaper for the beach and then mounted on Kraft paper.
Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge theme of Make a Scene  - the possibilities are endless for this challenge so hope to see lots of entries.

I choose to go with the stripes and make a pop and twist card.

June 28, 2017 Anything Goes

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is ANYTHING GOES, which is one of my favorite challenges.  I choose to do a pop and twist card.


and here the card is open


This is such a fun card to make (after I learned how to make the mechanism) and the possibilities for this card are endless.  I used two stamps from the Summer series:  Chill Out 9013D and Cool Treats 9008N and for the front of the card I
used  Happy Birthday 1113D.  For the front of the card I just cut a rectangle, rounded 3 corners, used a scallop punch edge for the "bite" and a small craft stick for the bar.  I had some ice cream treat ribbon that I tied in a knot around the small craft stick.  The inside ice cream treats are all paper pieced.  

  Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge theme of ANYTHING GOES  - the possibilities are endless for this challenge so hope to see lots of entries.

June 21, 2017 Photo Inspiration


This week at The House that Stamps Built is our photo inspiration




My card for this challenge was to create a beachy scene with my new oxide inks. 
And what is more perfect for a quiet evening at the beach than  a bottle of wine to share with a friend or spouse.  I love this wine set Wine for Two 9507P paired with the sentiment Party 9610D.  I had some beach sequins that I recently ordered so they went perfectly with this scene.  

Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the challenge of the Photo inspiration.    - the possibilities are endless for this challenge so hope to see lots of entries.

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge of the week is Tic-Tac-Toe - which is one of my favorite challenges.  I choose to go with the right vertical using dogs, earth tones, and eyelets.  Since it was my week for the POTW which was the curtain card I choose to make another card with that technique.  I used 8105F Tail Mail and8117E A Dog Loves You .   I had the doggie paw print paper in my stash as well as the eyelets and dog paw print ribbon.  I already have this card ready to go out in the mail to one of my senior buddies.
