DCC Challenge- Celebrate Birthdays!

Hi there!   Are you ready for another fun challenge? Time for Repeat Impressions Designer Choice Challenge, this week the super talented Melissa is hosting and has ask us to make a card or project with the theme of Celebrate Birthdays. Sounds like fun doesn't it? We would love for you to join us and you can find all the info  at Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built.

For my card I used this cute " Gumball Machine " #9702 , "Gumballs" #9710 and the sentiments are "Happy Birthday" # 1113 and " Have a Ball" #9703 by Repeat Impressions. I colored the image with Copic's and for a little added touch I add another ball to the ball slot by stamping the ball image again then cut it out. Cut it down and glue it. 





 Be sure to check out all gorgeous cards the rock stars have to share!




Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great week.

Project Of The Week - Out Of The Box!

Hi there! I'm here with another POTW at Repeat Impressions. I used the out of the box technique  stamped on both sides of the front panel of the card. This works great if you have a image that is the same on both sides. Like this gorgeous butterfly by Repeat Impressions.


Here is the inside view.




 Here is how I created it.
I started out with a piece of white A-2 side folded CS. Using a Stamp-a-ma- Jig to place my image where I wanted.



Next I used a ruler to mark where I wanted to cut out a portion of the image.



 I cut up and down to the butterfly and around the butterfly




A closer view.



Next on the inside I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig again to line up the image perfectly on the already cut out side. Then stamped it.



I then rounded the front corners and randomly stamped the vine image and using the SIMJ to place them where I wanted them. Last I colored the butterfly and the vine. Then added the sentiment.
I colored them with Copic's but keep in mind to use heavy CS or it will blend through.

Stamps by Repeat Impressions: "Butterfly(lg) "#9001, "Flowering Vine" #4314 and the sentiment is "Beautiful Days" #9206. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

DCC Challenge- "Blues"

Hi there! How about a challenge?  This week the very talented Joyce is hosting the DCC Challenge for Repeat Impressions. She wants us to make a card or project with the theme " Blues"  Sound like fun? I thought so. Hope you can join us as we would love to see your creations. You can find all the info on playing along at Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built.


 For my sample I made a blue Christmas card using Repeat Impressions " Pointsettia" #2012. I used a mask and stamped the image three times and colored them with Copic's. Then I brushed clear 'Wink of Stella" over them, it doesn't show up much in the photo but it gives a real pretty shine on the image.


For more wonderful inspiration check the rest of my teammates creations.


Also  Cheri my teammate posted  this awesome tutorial on Monday at Repeat Impressions what she calls ""White Pigment Ink Resist" check it out, it's pretty cool!
