Designer's Choice Challenge at RI

  Hi there!  Today at Repeat Impressions we  have a really fun challenge brought to you by Joyce! Thanks Joyce, this was a great challenge. Hope you can join us in the fun and maybe even win a prize!! All the info can be found here at Repeat Impressions blog The House That Stamps Built.
Now on to my card sample, this gorgeous image is "Wiener Dance" #7119, by Repeat Impressions. and the sentiment is "weenie" #7026 also by Repeat Impressions. A few months back I was inspired by a card Kecia had made, so much so that I got the stamp and cased her card. I changed the DP and the design a bit.
For some reason my camera darkened the image so it looks like I may have roasted him a bit to long!!! LOL. It didn't turn out as good as Kecia's but I like it anyway.

WIW Sketch Challenge at RI

 Hi there!  Here is another fun sketch challenge at Repeat Impressions that Wendy made for us. Hope you can join in the fun. You can find all the info on the challenge here at The House That Stamps Built.


Yesterday a Ice Cream Truck came down our street playing the music that took me back to fun memories! It is new to our neighborhood. What fun!! So that was the inspiration for my card and the fact I just love this stamp. I colored the image with Copic's and cut them out. The image is from Repeat Impressions new "Pairing Summer Series" and the sentiment is "Yummy" #9310


Here is how I did the inside of my card. I stamped the image 3 times and colored one and then colored just the scoop of the other two ice cream images and cut them out  adding them to top of the colored cone. Making a triple decker! Easy peasy.






For more amazing inspirations using this sketch, check our the rest of the teammates here.
