RI WIW Designers Choice Challenge--Think Snow

Hey there friends!  This week on The House That Stamps Built blog is a Designers Choice Challenge and it is my turn to pick the challenge so I decided the theme would be:

Think Snow

 

Shaker cards are all the rage right now and I have been busy making them left and right.

I stamped this adorable Repeat Impressions Joyful Rabbit #203-P in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with just a few markers.  A little pink for the ears, a touch of gray for the bunny and some light aqua for the falling snow.

I stamped the RI Wishing You a Season #424-G in black ink and cut it out with an oval die and then mounted it to a red oval die cut.  

The top panel was embossed with a snowflake/dot folder and then I went over the dots and snowflakes with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush pen.  You can see it, but this card is so shimmery.  I used some sequins and a wee bit of snow for the inside of the shaker.

Be sure to check out my fellow Rock Star's blogs for some more 
Think Snow fun.



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

Don't forget, if you are itching to do a little Repeat Impressions' shopping, you will find a 10% off discount code in my right sidebar.  Don't forget to use it!

Winter Wonderland

Happy Friday morning y'all!

We are getting some much needed rain here in the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountain range and that means snow in the hills when the temps drop!

This is what I imagine Yosemite National Park is looking like today, snow capped and beautiful!


I wish you could see all of the glitter on this card, it is so pretty in person.  

Here are the fun Crafter's Companion products used:


SN Premium White Cardstock
CC Embossalicious Christmas Elegance 6 x 6 Folder
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

I also used the following:
Black cardstock, Echo Park Snowflake dies, Silver cording, Elizabeth Craft Designs Warm Diamond Glitter, and a black gem.

RI WIW Designers Choice Challenge-Anything But A Card

It is What If Wednesday on The House That Stamps Built blog and this week and Rock Star Deonna has challenged us to created Anything but a Card.

One thing that I love to create at holiday time is little treat gifts.  Any excuse to buy a bag of Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares will work for me!



I die cut two small tags and scored each one 1/4" up from the bottom of the tag.  I then adhered the two 1/4" pieces together to create the space for the chocolate square.  I tied them closed with some ribbon and twine. These are quick and easy to put together. One tip I have is to stamp/color several images at once and then you will have them ready to go when you need to put a quick little gift together.

I used the following Repeat Impressions images:

RI WIW Sketch Challenge--Funky Flakes

Good morning friends!

It is What if Wednesday on The House that Stamps Built blog and Wendy(owner of Repeat Impressions) has given us another great sketch to work with.

I went a little funky this time and used some non traditional Christmas colors to create my card.



I inked up the Repeat Impressions Snowflakes #8805-K with Memento Teal Zeal, Pear Tart and Rose Bud and stamped it randomly onto a scrap of white cardstock and then cut them into squares and then rounded two corners to mimic Wendy's sketch.  I layered them to lime and white glitter panels and then to a white embossed panel.  Next I layered everything to a lime card base.  I added another strip of lime and white glitter paper with a pretty pink ribbon as a finishing touch.


Please stop by each of the Rock Star's blogs and check out their awesome cards created using Wendy's sketch for inspiration.


We would love to have you play along with the sketch 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 :)
