RI WIW Designers Choice Challenge - Sparkle, Glitter or Bling

Hey there, it is Wednesday again and Karen has challenged us to use Sparkle, Glitter or Bling for our projects on The House That Stamps Built blog.


I started by stamping the Repeat Impressions Happy Frog #9724-G with black ink onto a scrap of white cardstock, colored with markers and adhered to a blue glitter scallop panel and then I added to the print/glitter panels with foam tape to pop it up a bit.

Next, I stamped the Repeat Impressions Toad You #9723F onto a scrap of white cardstock with black ink and layered it with a scrap of the blue glitter paper and popped it up with some more foam tape.  I added some red brads to the corners to match the dots on the print paper.


Be sure to head over to The House That Stamps Built and check out all of the challenge details.  We would love it if you played along.  You will have a chance to win a fabulous prize too!

RI Project of the Week: Embossing Folder Backgrounds

Hi there, Melissa here and it is my turn to share a Project of the Week with you on The House That Stamps Built blog.

This week, I want to share some Embossing Folder Backgrounds with you.
Have you ever made EF Backgrounds?  If not, they are a tiny bit messy, but a ton of fun.  I like to make several at one time so that they are ready whenever I need them.

Gather a variety of embossing folders, inks, sprays and some cardstock.  I like to pre-cut 1/4 sheets of cardstock so that I can made several backgrounds at a time.



Apply the ink to either of the interior sides of the embossing folder, if you would like the inks to "move" around a bit, spritz with a light mist of water.  Lay cardstock in folder and emboss.


 Look at all of these awesome backgrounds!


Grab some of your favorite Repeat Impressions rubber stamps and have some fun creating beautiful cards and projects.

Here are two cards I made:


I used the Repeat Impressions Tulip Bouquet #912-K and stamped it in black ink and colored with markers.  I cut the image with oval and scalloped oval dies and added some pearls and seam binding ribbon as a finishing touch.  


I used the Repeat Impressions Nature Quartet #8506-U to create this card. I stamped the image in Rich Cocoa ink and then cut the panels apart to use them separately.

I would love for you to give this technique a try.  If you do, please come back and share a link to your project in the comments, I would love to see them.

You should have arrived at my blog from Debbie's blog, but if you didn't you can go back to the Tombow blog and start at the beginning.


I am sharing a card I made using some fun dies from Memory Box.  I started with a cream card base and then used Tombow Xtreme Adhesive to add the coral print panel.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in a coral ink onto a cream panel and matted it with a solid deep coral cardstock using Xtreme Adhesive.  I mounted this panel onto the print panel using Tombow Foam Tabs.  For the die cuts, I added some Tombow Mono Multi to the back (just a wee bit is all you need) and placed them on the cream panel.  I added a bow and some pearls to finish off the card.

Be sure to stop by each of these blogs and leave a comment for your chance to win this fabulous prize pack from Tombow.

Here is Wendy's great sketch:

RI WIW-Designers Choice Challenge--Summer Fun

Hey, hey, hey....it's Wednesday and that means it is time for another Designers Choice Challenge on The House That Stamps Built Blog.  This week, Rock Star Brenda has challenged us to create something with a Summer Fun Theme

For me, summer means heading to the beach...and maybe dipping a toe or two into the ocean.  :)



I chose a sand/surf color theme and the RI Sea Quartet #8508-U stamp.  I embossed the image in gold embossing powder and edged it with some Tea Dye Distress ink.  I popped the image up onto an embossed aqua panel and then added that to a deep teal panel and sand colored card.  For a finishing touch, I added some shimmery gold Dew Drops in two corners.

Be sure to head over to The House That Stamps Built and check out all of the challenge details.  We would love it if you played along.  You will have a chance to win a fabulous prize too!

You Are My Sunshine

Hey there and happy, happy Monday to you!

Today, my friend Debbie Fisher has issued up a challenge on the Tombow blog.  Debbie has challenged us to create a card/project with a sunshine theme.

Well, the sun sure has been shining here and it made for some awesome inspiration for my card.


This card is a fun size at 3" x 6".  I started this one by heading to my Silhouette library and looking for a sun and sentiment.  I found this fun sun and cut it out in orange and yellow cardstocks.  I layered the orange to the yellow using Tombow Mono Multi and then popped it up using Tombow Foam Tabs and then adhered to the top left corner of my card with another foam tab.  The cloud and orange cardstocks were added to a yellow card base using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.  

Next, I stamped the "You" and "are my" in black ink using the Reverse Confetti All About You set and then cut three of the "sunshine" with my Silhouette and stacked them using Tombow Mono Multi and added it to my card with a little more Mono Multi.  

For the finishing touch I used Tombow Mono Aqua on the sun and the sentiment and then covered them with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.  

Would you like to win this awesome prize pack?



 Be sure to head on over to the Tombow blog and check out the details of her challenge.  We would love it if you would play along.

Friendship Spring Branch



I hope your summer is treating you right and you have been staying cool and out of the heat.  No better way to do that then by heading to your stamping space and getting creative.

Today, I am sharing a card I creating using my Tombow Dual Brush Pens and a spritzer to give my card a watercolor effect.


I started by die cutting three of the Hero Arts Spring Branch dies out of 140# Cold Press Watercolor paper and then coloring one of them completely using the following Tombow Dual Brush Pens: Avocado #098, Pink Rose #703, Pink #723 and Chocolate #969 (always need a little chocolate somewhere when crafting ;)

On the 2nd die cut, I colored only the leaves and the flowers and on the 3rd, only the flowers.  Give each of the die cuts a little spritz with water and watch the magic happen.

The Tombow Dual Brush pens will blend together and give you a beautiful watercolor look.  
Before you layer and add your Spring Branch to the card, add a few splatters of color using the markers, a non porous surface (ie:  an acrylic block or plastic plate), a paintbrush or toothbrush and some water. I scribbled the marker onto an acrylic block, spritz with water and then pick up color with the brushes and holding the brush over the cardstock, tap it with your finger.  Do this with each of the colors.  You will really be glad that you did!   I got the larger splatters by using a large soft paintbrush and smaller splatters by using the toothbrush.

When your card base is good and dry, stamp a sentiment in a coordinating ink on the lower right corner.  The sentiment I used is from the Penny Black, Special Wishes #30-229 stamp set.  

Next, you will want to adhere your completely colored die cut onto the card using some Tombow Mono Multi.  Next, you will want to snip the leaves and flowers off of the second die cut and layer them to the first die cut using Tombow Mono Multi.  Be sure to offset the leaves and petals a bit for a more realistic look.  Now, you will add the final set of flowers from the third die cut in the same manner as before.  Add a few pearls for a finishing touch and you are good to go!

This card was really quick and easy to make and would be perfect for when you need to mass produce some cards.

Sending you wishes for a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by!
