Summer!

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is Anything goes!



I CASED this idea from echo park. They have a set of small dies that spells out summer using popsicles, and I thought it would be super fun to use Repeat Impressions popsicles in a similar way. Of course I had to add nuts and sprinkles into the mix. I masked off the popsicles and colored with Copic's. The small letter dies are from Tim Holtz Sizzix line. 

 

There's a new challenge every week over at  The House That Stamps Built, and you don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps to link up or win. Also, for my blog readers: Enjoy the 10% discount code to the Repeat Impressions Store posted on the sidebar.

 

One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate on the first Wednesday of every month – Good luck!



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

Blue water colored flowers

Hello everyone. Playing in The Paper Players sketch challenge today. PP551


Used the new distress prize ribbon on the background strips. The flower stamp is (I believe) from Penny Black and I've had this water colored up and stuck in my stash for a while. Though it went well with the sketch and paired pretty closely with the new distress ink. Pearls are from Moda Scrap, and the thanks die was stacked three times for dimension.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day.

Christmas in July - Happy Holidays

Hi everyone. It's time for another challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week our challenge is Christmas in July. 



I went with a tag and made is rustic. Isn't that moose fun? Pine bough die is from Carta Bella. I've also had these small snow covered pine cones in my stash for a while and put them to use on this. A bit of tartan ribbon tied off with black scrappers floss and were good.

Stenciled tags

Hello. Sharing a couple of tags that I created a while back when I previously did this technique for a project of the week. Hung on to them and decided it might be fun to rerun this technique again. All you need is a solid stamp, a stencil and ink or paint. 



I used the solid tag stamp and stenciled directly onto it with ink, then stamped and cut it out. Layered them with navy blue cardstock. I also cut out a smaller tag for the sentiment. Navy satin ribbon and twine used for the tops.  The "eyelet" is actually a die that I used on the same navy cardstock.

Have a great day.

Sending best wishes

Hello. Playing in the Freshly Made Sketch today. After starting and stopping many times, this is my final result.


I used bundled sage and rustic wilderness oxide ink on this leaf stencil from The Crafters Workshop. Paired it with a sentiment from The Ton. The loopy die is from Gina Marie Designs. It's actually a slim line die that I pieced together. 

I'm liking the clean and simple design of this. Thanks for stopping by.
