RI-WIW Sketch Challenge

It is no secret that I love sketch challenges and this week Wendy has given the Repeat Rock Star team another awesome sketch to work with.

Want to play along?  Head on over to The House That Stamps Built blog and join in on the fun. 



Hey, hey I bet you thought I was going to do another red/white and blue card this month....didn't you?

Since it has been so blooming hot, I decided to pull out some nice summery colors.

I stuck to the sketch pretty closely this time.  I stamped the Repeat Impressions Posies #632-H in Lettuce Adirondack ink as I wanted image outline to fade to back a bit and have the flowers front and center.  I used Copic markers to color in the image,  I did not sofent the yellow background as I wanted it to POP off of the panel.  I am happy with the way it came out. Next,  I stamped the RI Thinking of You #8611-E sentiment in the same Lettuce ink to bring it all together.

Here is Wendy's awesome sketch for this week:





We would love to have you play along with the challenge as well, head on over to The House That Stamps Built for all of the details.  Wendy will be giving away an awesome prize to one lucky person who plays along :)

RI-WIW Photo Inspiration Challenge

So, this post was supposed to go live earlier today and I totally missed the mark!  My apologies to Wendy at Repeat Impressions and to all of my fellow Rock Stars.

Now, on with the show!

This week on The House That Stamps Built blog we have a photo inspiration challenge.  We were given two different photos to choose from and I chose this one:



Here is what I came up with!


I used some scraps of cardstock that I had left over from another card project to mimic the blue and stripes in the photo above. 

I stamped the Repeat Impressions God Bless #3705-J in black ink onto a scrap of white cardstock and then layered it to some navy and red panels.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the red stripes and some silver stars to the blue area.  I tied a bow with some white/silver twine to finish off this card.

Please be sure to head on over to each of my fellow Rock Star's blogs and check out their amazing creations.

RI WIW-Designer's Choice Challenge

Hi friends!

Happy Wednesday!  Today on The House That Stamps Built blog, Patti has issued the challenge to create a card/project using White and one other color.

I know some don't consider black as a color, but it is to me and it is so classic when paired with white.



I stamped the Repeat Impressions Tulip Bouquet #912-K in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some white cardstock and simply added a few pearls and a bow for embellishment.

I didn't even add glitter glue!  It is a miracle folks!

I think this card could be used for any occasion, just add your favorite sentiment to the inside and you are ready to go.

Please be sure to head on over to each of my fellow Rock Star's blogs and check out their amazing creations.

RI WIW-Color Challenge Week

Happy Wednesday!  Today on The House That Stamps Built blog, Wendy has given us a Color Challenge.  I love color challenges!

This week the colors are:


I love RED, WHITE and BLUE!

Have you ever had one of those times when you had a card all figured out in your head and when it went to paper, it was an epic fail?

That is what happened to me this week.  Finally after I fiddled around for a bit, I came up with this card:


I used a red and blue Tombow Dual Brush pen to color in the Repeat Impressions USA #3702-G and stamped it several times using my stamp positioner.

I created the little sparklers from some foil wrapping paper (from my stash) and toothpicks.  

I added a little twine and called it good!

Please be sure to head on over to each of my fellow Rock Star's blogs and check out their amazing creations using this color combo.

RI WIW-Sketch Challenge

It is no secret that I love sketch challenges and this week Wendy has given the Repeat Rock Star team another awesome sketch to work with.

Want to play along?  Head on over to The House That Stamps Built blog and join in on the fun. 



So, I went a little rebel with the original sketch and flipped it on it's side, used circles instead of squares and left off the band across the edge.  Yep, I am a rebel and that is how I roll :)

I die cut the circles onto some white shimmer cardstock and adhered it to a purple cardbase using foam tape.  I wrapped some purple shimmer ribbon around the card on each side of the circles before attaching to the card.  Be sure to add a little extra tape over the ends of your ribbon so it doesn't pop off in the mail....that would really be the pits!

 I added some die cut butterflies into the openings and topped each of them with a little white pearl. 

I stamped the Repeat Impressions Birthday Vertical #6104-J down the right side in place of the band as shown in the sketch.  

This is a quick and easy card and you could whip up a whole set using many of the different Verticals in the collection.

Here is Wendy's awesome sketch:

RI-Project of the Week

Hi there!

Well, it is my turn to share a Project of the Week with you and I thought we would put together a simple shaker card.

As always, gather your goodies:


Stamp your image and lay out your card:


I used Memento Black ink and Red and Blue Tombow markers to color the Repeat Impressions God Bless Flag #3507-J and then stamped it onto some white cardstock.  I cut a scalloped panel to go behind and layered that to a red, star embossed panel and then attached all of that goodness to a white cardbase.

Next, you will want to create a frame and then adhere acetate (clear plastic sheet) to the back side.  Next, I added two layers of foam tape around the edges:



Now, lay your shaker goodies (sequins, beads, etc...) on top of your stamped image.



Next, lay the frame over the top.  This way, you don't have to worry about lining your image up as you can see right where you are putting your frame.

Voila!  Your card is now finished!



I hope you will take some time to make a shaker card and come back and share with us.
