Happy Birthday, Wendy!


Good Morning!
 
Today, we are celebrating a very special lady!
 
Wendy Wyman, owner of Repeat Impressions Stamps, has a birthday today,
and we all want to wish her a wonderful day...
 
When Wendy was just 4 years old, she announced that she was going to be an artist when she grew up.  Many years, and many sketchbooks later, she had earned a BFA in Graphic Design.
 
The next 11 years found Wendy worked in advertising, freelancing, and running a printing company.
 
And then it happened...Wendy's mom became a stamping addict, and the rest was history!  It was Wendy's mom's encouragement that led her to turn her illustrations into fine art rubber stamps.
 
Wendy's husband Bill, was also looking for a career change, and jumped at the idea of learning a new skill.  And so....in 1996, Wendy and Bill established Repeat Impressions Stamps.  Each stamp is designed by Wendy, and manufactured by Bill in their home workshop!
 
We hope that you will join us today, as we hop together for Wendy!
 
A note to Wendy from all of us:
 
Wendy, you are the sweetest, and most generous person we know.
As a 'boss', rarely do we find ourselves working for someone that is more professional,
or more organized!  You are so understanding of our personal issues, and it's a joy to work with you and your products!

We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!
We each look up to you, we admire you, and we respect you.
May your day today be filled with love and laughter!

And remember....the more candles you have, the bigger the wish you are allowed!
 
Here are a few of my favorite Repeat Impressions creations:

(This last card was something I made from searching the web for "Geocaching," which is something that Wendy likes to do.)  I hope your birthday was an adventure, Wendy!

Please hop along to see what my fellow Rock Stars have to share for Wendy!
 
 
 
Thanks for hopping with us!  If you have a minute, please go to the RI blog, The House that Stamps Built, and leave Wendy a bit of Birthday love!!!
 
Hugs and smiles,

Anything goes challenge



It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week is anything goes.


Aren't those bandaids cute? They are a die from MFT and I used them to anchor down the get well postage stamp from Repeat Impressions.  I did heat emboss it to give it a bit of texture. Card ended up being a 4 x 4 square. 

So, what are you waiting for?!

Why not play along with us and start stamping up a card now. We can’t wait to see your creations!
Don’t forget… Take part in one weekly challenge or all of them. The more you play along, the more chances you have to win! Each submission enters you in the drawing for our gift certificate. And you don’t always have to use our stamps in your creations, but we will reward you if you do. Each submission using a
Repeat Impressions stamp will earn you an additional entry in the drawing!

Also, check out our Rock Star blogs to see what they did with the challenge.

Washi tag birthday

Hi there.  Playing in the sketch challenge over at CAS colours and sketches and paired it with the washi tape challenge over at Less is More.


I taped several colors of washi tape onto a piece of cardstock and then die cut it using the round tag from Papertrey, Ink.

I cut the banner and then stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things and heat embossed it so it wouldn't rub off.  I popped it up using tiny foam tape squares and those stripes really do match up in real life.

Tied on some heavy duty string and tied it into a bow. Rounded off the corners on the white card base and panel just to be different.


 That's it for today - thanks for stopping by.

Pink Peony

Hi there. Here is my take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.

I have to say that this sketch gave me fits today.

Peony stamp is from The stampin place. I stamped it in Versafine ink, hat embossed with clear embossing powder then colored with Copic's.

Green cardstock is from MFT and the pink and black is from PTI.

I used Fabrika Decoru in dark night to create the tiny enamel dots. You can find all the different colors of these at Kat Scrappiness - link to the right!

That's all for now, thanks for stopping by.

Photo Inspiration


It’s time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we were challenged to use the following picture as inspiration.


I found that cool designer paper in my stash of paper scraps, so I have no idea who makes it. Cat is stamped in Versafine, heat embossed and colored with Copic's. Grey cardstock is from MFT and I used some vintage buttons on the side to balance out the card.

So, what are you waiting for?!

Why not play along with us and start stamping up a card now. We can’t wait to see your creations!
Don’t forget… Take part in one weekly challenge or all of them. The more you play along, the more chances you have to win! Each submission enters you in the drawing for our gift certificate.
