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.




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-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.

RI WIW-Photo Challenge


This week on The House That Stamps Built blog we have a photo inspiration challenge.  I loved the pretty blue in this card and decided to go with the color as my main inspiration with the butterfly as my secondary inspiration.    



I started with some glossy white cardstock and then smooshed some Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass and Broken China onto a craft mat and spritzed it with water.

I smooshed the cardstock around until I got the look I wanted.  I used a heat tool to dry the paper completely before stamping the RI Butterfly Silhouette Large #5106-H in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I matted the Butterfly panel to an aqua panel and then a black panel.

I stamped the RI Beautiful Days sentiment #9206H in black ink onto a scrap of the aqua cardstock and then matted it to a scrap of black cardstock and layered it to the card.  I added some aqua glitter dots and black enamel dots as a finishing touch.

RI WIW-Designer's Choice Challenge

Hi there!  

This week on The House That Stamps Built blog is the Designer's Choice Challenge and it is my turn to pick the challenge.  I picked a "Fresh & Fruity" Theme.

Right now, I am loving fresh grown strawberries and chose to use one of my favorite Repeat Impressions stamps to create my card.


I stamped the Repeat Impressions Strawberries #515-L onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.  Next, I cut the image panel and two coordinating panels with some Cross Stitch Oval Dies and popped up the image panel with foam tape.  The oval panels are added to some pretty print layers and for a finishing touch I added some glitter glue and Glossy Accents to the leaves and pearls flanking each side of the image panel.

Repeat Impressions-What if Wednesday Color Challenge

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 these colors together!





I stamped the Repeat Impressions, Vase of Tulips #1317L in Memento Black ink onto some cream shimmer cardstock and colored it in with Copic markers. Because the Copics are transparent inks, the shimmer shows through and it is so pretty in person.  Trust me, it is!  I didn't even add glitter!  It's a miracle!  This card has a simple design and I finished it off with some sequins and a bow. 

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

Good Wednesday morning friends!  

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.  


I love the RI Hot Air Balloon Cluster #9116-N so I stamped it in black ink onto a white oval  panel and then a second time onto a scrap of white paper.  I colored the balloon images with Copic markers.  It is hard to see, but I also created clouds with the markers in the background of both the image and sentiment panels.  I cut out the second balloon and popped it up onto some Tombow Power Tabs
 
I stamped the RI Happy Hello #9717-C  in black ink onto an oval panel.  I layered both oval panels to red oval panels and popped them up.

Here is Wendy's awesome sketch:
