August 16, 2016 Photo Challenge





This week over at The House that Stamps Built the challenge is a photo inspiration pictured at the start of my post.  I chose to go with a wiper card and it has been years since I have made one of type cards, had to look up some instructions.  I used stamps from one collection found HERE  9712Q Fish Bowl, 9713E Bubbles, 9716H Fish Face, and 9720C Big Wish.  I had recently bought some "fishie" paper so it worked well on this challenge.  I had some underwater plant and shell dies so I used them in the bottom of the fish bowl.  I fussy cut the gold fish out as the popout on my wiper.  What a fun card.

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

August 9, 2017 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge


This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challengeis Tic-Tac-Toe which is one of my favorite challenges.  I choose to do fun fold, stenciling, and dew drops.  



I used Happy Bee 9301-P for the outside of my card which was gate fold - then honeycomb stencil in distress oxide Wild Honey ink.  I embossed the image after coloring with rainbow embossing powder and mounted on a scallop circle.  I ten wrapped a piece of twine around and under the circle and tied in a bow.  Some dew drops finished the front.  On the inside I did a hidden message until you open the card.  I used Beecause 9312-D and finished off with Sweet 9313-D.
This was such a fun card to make and really not that hard.  

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

August 7, 2017 POTW - Bandana Technique

This is my week over at The House that Stamps Built it is my turn to do the Project of the Week.  I choose to do the Bandana Technique.

This is an oldie and I had not made one in several years - but I remember when they were popular and fun to make.  Reminds me of the bandana handkerchief my hubby usually has in his back pocket.  He uses his for a sweat band, neck cooler in hot weather, and a handkerchief in cold weather.  


Your supplies will be:  Card stock - base cardstock A2 size, and  one color to stamp on which needs to be a dark color, red, purple, dk. green, blue etc. and a layering colors, Versafine black Ink, ribbon, stylus, white acrylic paint and a small plate or container to pour some white pain into.  And your stamps.  I used:

Stamp images in black Versafine ink using firm pressure to get good image, just stamp randomly so that it is pleasing to the eye.  


Using either end of stylus - (or toothpick, empty ballpoint pen etc) tip  of stylus in white paint acrylic paint and add white dots, again random so that it is pleasing to the eye.  I have two different sizes of stylus so I was able to make varying sizes of dots.  


You can do as much or as little as you like and if you wish do some random dots between images.  



Finish card as you wish - the solid flower images work so well with this technique but I also found that the open small leaves worked well.  Have fun.

August 2, 2017 DCC - Sound of Music


The first Wednesday of the month is designers choice over at The House that Stamps Built  and this week Cheri picked your favorite movie.  I had recently received the music stamp 6806-U Sheet Music  and my favorite movie is
THE SOUND OF MUSIC so this worked perfectly.  I used my Misti and stamped the image in black.  For my sentiment I used 2521-H A Friend Knows which I embossed in white on a black die cut.  I added some punched notes, and some bling pearls on my sentiment  and layered this on black/white polkadot bg.


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

August 1, 2017 House of Cards Challenge




When I saw the Challenge for this month at House of Cards and saw that is was floral image and/or colors I did a floral image.  I picked up this stamp set from Darcie over a year ago and it was in my NBUS (never before used stuff) so thought I would play with it n one of our HOT afternoons that we have been having here in southern Missouri.  This card required a LOT of masking - but loved the way it turned out.  Colored with copic markers - added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle and then figured out my layout.  IRL the colors are so much brighter but for some reason this just didn't photograph as well as I wished had. 

 Come join us for this challenge over at The House of Cards this month - will be looking forward to seeing your creations.

July 26, 2017 ANYTHING GOES


Easy Peasy - anything goes this week over at The House that Stamps Built.

It is HOT here is southern Missouri - even sitting out under a Summer Tree1613J
there is not much a breeze or escape from the heat.  So much better to be sitting inside creating in my craft room or in my chair reading a new summer series book.  For my sentiment I used Happy Summer 9003E only a couple of weeks ago I cut the words apart for more versatility.  I only had room for Summer on this card so that is all I used.  I watercolor washed the background of my picture and I just got a new die cut for this chair which fits perfectly under the tree.
Hope you are enjoying your summer so far - and yes there are already school supplies out at WalMart and Dollar General.


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.

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.
