Repeat Impressions POTW-Stamping on Print Paper

Hi there!  This week it is my turn to share a Project of the Week with you on The House That Stamps Built blog so today I am sharing:

  Stamping on Print Paper

I love this technique for when I am in a hurry as it really moves the process along, especially when you are in a time crunch.

As always, start by gathering some supplies.  I decided to use images from the Contain Yourself and Bottom's Up collections so I gathered my stamps and supplies that I thought I might need/use.


I pulled my stamps, cardstock, ink, embellies and other items and got busy :)



I stamped the Happy Frog #9724-G in black ink onto some green/white dot paper and the Lemon #9611-H onto some yellow tone on tone dot paper and worked on my layouts for my cards.

 

Here is my frog card, I think he is adorable.  I added some shading with a Copic marker in the areas where Wendy (RI Illustrator) added some shadows on the image.  This is great because you know right where to add your shading making it easy peasy.  I fussy cut the frog and popped him up using foam tape onto the right side of an oval panel that I had stamped the Un-frog-gettable #9704-F sentiment on.  Next was all about assembly.  I added a few little die cut hearts for a finishing touch on this one.



For this card, I stamped the Lemon with black ink onto the print paper and fussy cut.  I added some shading just as I had on the frog card following Wendy's guidelines making this one just as easy as the first.  I added some die cut leaves out of the scrap from the frog card (great way to recycle) and stamped the When Life #9604-F onto another scrap of cardstock and die cut into an oval shape.  I added some color to the center of the oval with a Copic marker.  

I would love to see what you do with stamping on print paper, come back here and leave a link in the comments so that I can check it out.

Spring Butterfly

Good Morning!

Today I am sharing a Spring butterfly card that I created using some Crafter's Companion stamps and the new Spectrum Aqua Markers.

While most of the country has cold and snow, we are having Spring like conditions here in California.  We really need some rain and snowpack here, so please send it our way as we are keeping our fingers crossed that we won't have a long, dry summer this year.

RI WIW-Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday friends!

It is Sketch Challenge week on The House That Stamps Built blog and Wendy has given us another amazing sketch to work with.  I love sketch challenges, do you?


I love this little bunny!  She is adorable!

I embossed a gray card base with a swirly embossing folder for starters and then I added the stitched rectangle and purple dot panel.  Next, I stamped the RI Clover Bunny #702-K in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with markers and die cut with a stitched circle die.  I added some Stickles to her blossoms for a little extra pop.  I stamped the sentiment Happy Hello #9717-C from the Contain Yourself collection and cut it out with another stitched circle die.  

Here is Wendy's awesome sketch:

RI WIW--Inspiration Photo Challenge

Whew!  Can you believe that we are nearly to the third week of February?  Crazy isn't it?

This week on The House That Stamps Built we have been given this beautiful inspiration photo:


I know, you see lots of hearts, pink and red....well, I see hearts and love.  When I put those two things together, this is what I came up with.

1.  Love......I love cheese
2.  Heart......cheese in the shape of a heart

Now what could be better?

How about this adorable mouse with some heart shaped cheese?



I love how this card shows my whimsical side.  I love whimsy as it always makes me smile.  Smiling is good :)

I started by stamping the Repeat Impressions Tumbling Hearts #1210-K in Versamark ink onto an aqua panel and then I stamped the Repeat Impressions Cheese Heart Mouse #4205-G in Archival Black ink onto some 140# cold press watercolor paper and then colored it using Spectrum Noir Aqua markers.  Next I cut the image with a circle die and layered to two additional circle die cut layers.  I masked off everything but the "love" word from the Repeat Impressions I Love You #9711-E (from the Contain Yourself series) and stamped it with black ink.  I finished off the card with some yellow/white bakers twine and a heart button.

RI WIW-Designers Choice Challenge

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Today on The House That Stamps Built blog, sweet RI Rock Star, Joy has challenged the team to create a card with a "Thank You" theme.

Well, that was pretty easy peasy :)


I decided to try something new (to me) with this card.  I used the "no line" coloring method.  I stamped the adorable RI Belle #701-K in Memento Desert Sand ink and colored her in with the following Spectrum Noir markers:  BG1, CR2, EB1, EB2, HB1, HB2, HB3, LG2, TN1 and the Blender.  I took my time and worked each section one at a time until I liked how it was looking.  I added some texture to her jacket with some very light cross hatching with the Blender pen.  

I stamped the RI Beary Much #1920 in Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I wanted the sentiment to have a little curve to it, so I just bent it a little when adding it to the acrylic block.

I want to thank Joy for giving me the beautiful papers that I used on this card, they are the softest lilac colors and they are so pretty.  :)

Be sure to head on over to each of the Rock Star's blogs and check out their awesome creations.

RI What If Wednesday--Color Challenge

Hello friends :)

This week on The House That Stamps Built blog Wendy has challenged us to use the following colors:


Well, you can help but think of Valentine's Day when you see these colors.  I often plot and plan cards out in my head and most of the time they end up nothing like I thought it would.  This card is the exception, it turned out just as I thought it would :)


I started with a red card base and added a white and pink print layer.  Next, I cut a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 piece of white cardstock and stamped the Repeat Impressions Hugs and Kisses Stencil image #1215-H in 3 colors of pigment ink (a light pink, medium pink and red) and embossed them with sparkle embossing powder.  I added some Diamond Stickles to the medium pink XO and the little heart just to make it pop a bit more.

Please head on over to my fellow Rock Star teamies blogs and check out their amazing creations using this color combo.
