RI WIW-Photo Inspiration

Hey there friends!  This week on The House That Stamps Built blog, Wendy has given the team a beautiful photo to inspire our creativity.

When I looked at the photo, I saw a gradient of black and gray with a pop of red.


I chose a couple of stamps from the Repeat Impressions Contain Yourself collection.  I stamped the Chocolate Drop 9715-C in a gradient of black and gray with the exception of one drop which I stamped in black, colored with red marker and then added glitter.  Once the glitter was dry, I added a layer of glossy accents over the top to add a little dimension and a lot of shine.  Next, I stamped the I Love You 9711-E in black and cut it with a banner end.  I cut the side of the chocolate drop and slid the sentiment panel behine the candy.

Here is the amazing photo:

Bamboo Love

Hey there, I am back with the second card in my Valentine card series.  This one uses the adorable Party Paws-Love from Bamboo Cling stamp set.

I really like that you can color Bamboo as a Panda or and adorable Teddy bear just by switching up the colors used.  I went the Panda route on this card, but will do a Teddy soon. :)

I will be back soon with card #3 in my Valentine series.

What If Wednesday-Monochromatic Color Challenge

Hey there and happy Wednesday.  This week on The House That Stamps Built blog Deonna has challenged the team to create a monochromatic card using the following colors:

Black/Brown/White


I started with a black card base and added some print layers.  Next, I die cut a black doily and added a cream panel that I had stamped the Repeat Impressions Hummingbird #4315-J in brown ink and added a bit of shading with a warm gray marker as warm grays have a brown undertone to them and this worked perfectly for adding that little bit of color.  I stamped the Repeat Impressions Deepest Sympathy #8612-E in brown ink and layered it to a black panel.  For a finishing touch, I added a couple of glittered flowers.

Be sure to stop by each of the Rock Star's blogs and see what they did with Deonna's challenge.

RI What If Wednesday: Color Challenge

Hey, hey and happy Wednesday!  This week the What If Wednesday takes a different path and we are trying something new.  This week on The House That Stamps Built blog, Wendy has asked us to create a card or project using the following color scheme:


I don't know about you, but I LOVE a color challenge!


Of course, these colors scream winter to me!  Winter means beautiful snowflakes will fall (just not too much of the white stuff, okay?)

I created my card by stamping the snowflakes from the Repeat Impressions Snowflake Cluster #8805 in several different colors of blue ink.  This is a great way to use all of those ink pads that we had to have, right?  

Next I embossed the RI Single Flake #8912-I with silver embossing powder and added it to the card front.  For some finishing touches I added some twine that has a tiny silver thread and some silver embellies to the top left and lower right corners of the card.


Be sure to check out each of the Rock Star's blogs this week and see all of their awesome creations.



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

Repeat Impressions Project of the Week-Monochromatic

Hi there!  This week it is my turn to share a Project of the Week with you.

One of my favorite things to do is Monochromatic cards.

Here is a simple definition of Monochromatic:
Monochromatic colors are all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hue.
Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints. Tints are achieved by adding white and shades and tones are achieved by adding a darker color, gray or black.
First, you need to pick your color scheme and go through your stash and gather some supplies:


Now, for my first card:


I stamped the Repeat Impressions Thanks A Bunch #1307E and the Repeat Impressions Posies 632-H in black ink and colored with markers.  For the sentiment, I  masked off the "A Bunch" and stamped the "Thanks" and then I repeated the process in reverse to get the sentiment stacked on the small white panel.  I stamped the floral posies randomly on the squares and then matted them with the darker purple cardstock.  I did add a tiny bit of green ink, but I think it really needed it.

Next, I wanted to create a cute Valentine card and this is what I came up with using my "pink" stash.




I stamped the sweet, sweet Hogs and Kisses #2812-G in black ink and colored them with some pink markers.  I thought I would "ham" it up a bit and add some googly eyes and red glitter lips :)

I hope you will give Monochromatic card making a try.  It really is fun and it is a great way to use up some scraps from your stash.

Wishing you a wonderful, creative week.
