RI WIW-Geri's Fall Challenge DCC924

Happy Wednesday!

This week on The House That Stamps Built blog, Repeat Impressions Rock Star Geri has challenged us to create a card using a Fall theme.


I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens to watercolor the RI Oak Leaf Silhouette #5110-I two times and then I covered the entire leaf with Versamark ink and embossed with Iridescent EP.  I stamped the RI To Everything #3212-H sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with White EP.

Be sure to head on over to The House That Stamps Built and check out each of my fellow Rock Stars amazing cards.  You will also find all of the details for Geri's challenge.  We would love to have you play along, and if you do, you could have a chance to win some wonderful stamps!

Repeat Impressions POTW-Triple Time Stamping

Hello and happy Monday!  This week it is my turn to share a Project of the Week with you on The House That Stamps Built blog.  

I have chosen to show you Triple Time Stamping

Triple Time Stamping is where you layer 3 pieces cardstock (usually a neutral) and you stamp an image randomly over the stacked pieces to create a background pattern. Next you take each of the neutral layers and add a coordinating solid behind them and then stack the layered layers once again matching up your stamped images.  

Come on along,  and I will show you how I do it.

First, you will need to gather your supplies:


I am going to be using the Repeat Impressions Poinsettia #2012-H (for the cream/red card) and Snowflakes #8805-K (for the white/blue card).  


Next, you will want to layer your neutral pieces in whichever manner they are going to be on your final layout.  For the red/cream card, I decided to just stack them one on top of the other.  I like to put a tiny amount of adhesive on the back so the pieces don't slide around when I am stamping.

We're getting there....


In this picture, (sorry about the blur) I have taken the stamped layers and added a coordinating solid behind each one and added them to my base card matching up the stamped images.  You can see that for the snowflake card, I put my layers a little caddy wompus, but the flakes all match up!


 Here is the completed poinsettia card.  I colored the flowers with several shades of red markers and added some gold dew drops in the centers.  I finished off this card with a wide ribbon tied in a simple knot.


To finish off the snowflake card, I stamped the Repeat Impressions Snowmen Fall #4601-H 
in blue ink and matted it with the darkest blue cardstock.  I punched a couple of large snowflakes and layered them a little offset from each other.  I covered the large white snowflake with some Stardust Stickles and Glossy Accents.  

I hope you will give this technique a try.  If so, be sure to come back here and leave us a comment with your link as we would love to see it.

RI WIW S1714 Sketch Challenge

I love sketches and sketch challenges!  Whew, it felt good to say that :)
Sketches give me a jumping off point and sometimes that is just the push I need.

Today I am sharing a card I created for the Repeat Impressions WIW Sketch Challenge on The House That Stamps Built blog.


I can't believe that I have started making Halloween cards already.  I usually don't do too many Halloween cards, but when I saw this stamp I immediately thought "self portrait", I am sure that is what my family would say sometimes :)

I started with the RI Spooktacular #2309-G sentiment and instead of stamping it as it was designed I stamped the words on three lines instead.  To do this, you can just mask over portions of your stamps, ink what you need (remember to remove the mask) and stamp.  Repeat this for each word or words that you want to use.

Next, I stamped my self portrait by using the RI Halloween Witch #817-I in black ink and coloring her with markers.  I used scraps of paper (yeah!) to create each of the layers.

Check out this awesome sketch created by Wendy (owner of Repeat Impressions)


Would you like a chance to win some free stamps?  We would love for you to play along with this sketch challenge.  Did you know that as much as we would love for you to use Repeat Impression stamps, it is not necessary that you do in order to win.  This just may be your chance to score some Repeat Impressions stamps of your own!

You can find all of the details on The House That Stamps Built blog.

Tombow Challenge Time--Jennie's Book Challenge

Hey there and happy Monday.  It is time for Jennie to share her challenge on the Tombow blog and Jennie has chosen a "Book" Theme.  

For my project, I chose to make some Fall themed bookmarks.


I used one of my favorite Fall themed stamp sets from Reverse Confetti called Forever Fall.  I love to color my stamps with Tombow's Dual Brush pens and wanted to give it a try with this set.  I wasn't sure how well it would work because the stamps are clear and sometimes that can be a bit tricky.  I loved how these turned out.  I colored the images with the markers and then gave them a light spritz with water and stamped them onto some cream cardstock.  I wanted to keep these very simple as I am going to make quite a few and donate them to our local library to give to the kids when they check out books.  

A little tip I gave a few days ago and want to repeat because I used it again today.

Use some Tombow Mono Aqua on your twine to stiffen it up a bit as this allows it to be much easier to tie in a bow.  The bow will really hold it's shape this way.  To do this, I just squirt some Mono Aqua out onto a scrap of cardstock and run the twine through it,  I use my fingers to lay the twine out nice and straight on my non stick craft mat and let it dry for a few minutes before I tie a bow or add to a project.

Now, how would you like to win this awesome prize pack?

                                                   MONO Multi Liquid Glue

Head on over to the Tombow blog for all of the details!

Hop with Tombow and Guest Designer Diana Larson

Hey there!  Today the Tombow team has Guest Designer Diana Larson on board and we have a Fall Themed hop for you.





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

I am going to share a few fall creations with you today.  I used a variety of Tombow Adhesives on each of these cards.


For this card, I used some Tombow Xtreme to adhere each of the flat panels to each other and Foam Tabs to adhere the image panel to the card.  I used some Tombow Power Tabs behind the flowers to hold them securely in place insuring that they won't fall off when going through the mail.


For this card, I used Xtreme to hold the flat layers together, Foam Tabs to pop up the image panel and the mustard panel to the card.  I used some Tombow Mono Multi to hold the leaves down to the embossed panel.



For this card, I colored the image with a variety of Tombow Dual Brush pens and stamped the image repeatedly layering each color one by one.  I used Foam Tabs to pop up the image panel onto the card and Xtreme to hold the flat layers together.
  
Now, how about winning some goodies?



The Prize includes:

*Please link the products

In order to be qualified to win this amazing PRIZE, PLEASE comment on each of the designers projects.

RI WIW Designers Choice Challenge--Black/Gray/White

Guess What?  It's Wednesday and you know what that means on The House That Stamps Built blog....it's challenge time.  

This week, Cheri has challenged the Repeat Rock Stars to create a card/project using the colors Black/Gray/White.  Cheri's challenged was inspired by watching an old Black/White movie with her Mom :)




For my card, I started by cutting a hexagon in the middle of the glitter dot cardstock and then  I stamped the Repeat Impressions Snowflake Outline Large #8197-I  in black ink onto a white panel and placed it in the hexagon opening.  Next, I cut a hexagon frame out of some warm gray cardstock and mounted it on top of the glitter dot cardstock using foam tape.  I mounted the image panel/glitter panel onto a black card.  For a finishing touch, I added some silver nailheads to the snowflake and a punched snowflake and some sprigs to upper edge of the hexagon.  

Be sure to check out each of the Rock Star blogs and see what birthday themed cards they have created.


After you have check out their awesome cards, head on over to The House That Stamps Built blog and play along with Cheri's Black/Gray/White challenge.  You could win a $25 gift certificate for stamps from Repeat Impressions :)

Hop with Tombow and Precious Remembrance Shop Day 3


I hope you are ready from some Fun Ideas and Great Prizes this week fromTombowUSA  and Precious Remembrance Shop 

If you're here from Kim Bell's amazing blog,then you’re in the right place,  if not then you may want to start at the beginning from the TombowUSA Blog 

I can't believe it is Day 3 of the hop already!  I have really enjoyed hopping with the gals at Precious Remembrance Shop.  The PR stamps are so my style and I love them!



For my final project for the hop  I have created a Thank You card.  I used the PR Thanks Stamp Set and the Oh So Fun Stamp Set.  I stamped the cute little jar and the sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  Next I stamped the little triangles from the Oh So Fun set with some pink, aqua and pool colored inks and added some Wink of Stella to a few and some Stardust Stickles to a few more.  I colored the top of the jar with a Tombow Dual Brush Pen.  I die cut the sentiment and scalloped oval and used some Tombow Xtreme to adhere the sentiment to the scallop layer.  I used Tombow Foam Tabs to adhere the sentiment panel to the image panel and the image panel to the Dot embosses white card.  I added a bit more Stickles to the the cute little hearts on the sentiment.  I used Tombow Mono Multi to adhere the narrow strips of paper to the white panel.

Here is a tip for you:

Use some Tombow Mono Aqua on your twine to stiffen it up a bit as this allows it to be much easier to tie in a bow.  The bow will really hold it's shape this way.  To do this, I just squirt some Mono Aqua out onto a scrap of cardstock and run the twine through it,  I use my fingers to lay the twine out nice and straight on my non stick craft mat and let it dry for a few minutes before I tie a bow or add to a project.
