Find Beauty



It's photo inspiration time at The House That Stamps Built:

Image may contain: text
What a fun inspiration to work with that can be used in so many ways, nice fall colors or a fun animal scene.  As you can tell above I went with the fall colors.  I did a Distress Oxide Background wash and then stenciled over it and then just some simple stamping on top with the MISTI so I could stamp it several times for a deep image.  I used Repeat Impressions:  9303-P, Thanks a latte'  and 8614-D, Find beauty.

Join us this week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions, two chances if you use a Repeat Impressions stamp.  Discount code available on my sidebar!

Christmas

Tic-Tac-Toe time at The House That Stamps Built  with lots of fun options to choose this week!

No automatic alt text available.

I'm trying to get a jump on my Christmas cards and just got this Repeat Impressions sweet little shepherd and could not wait to play with him:  2008-K, Shepherd Boy  paired with: 2202-G, May the miracle... so I went with Metallics, Washi Tape and Off the Edge.


Oops, I was scheduling my cards and I did this challenge twice so here is my bonus card also using the same squares: Metallics, Washi Tape and Off the Edge using yet another new stamp from Repeat Impressions: 309-N, Winter Birds, thanks Wendy!

Butterfly Trio


It's the 5th Wednesday so anything goes at The House That Stamps Built this week, whoo hoo!



I played with my Distressed Oxides and water splattering with a puddle on my hand then picking the water up with my finger tool and splattering it for a larger splatter, I liked the effect.  Some inlaid butterflies, an embossed panel and one of the fabulous vertical greetings by Repeat Impressions: 6104-J, Birthday Vertical.

Cards and Colorado pictures




 

A couple retirement cards for a dear co-worker that I will miss tremendously, I've worked with her for 12 years.  I wish her all the best.  A few pictures from a recent long weekend in Estes Park, Colorado.  Lots of fun hiking in the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park.  The Aspen tress are in full bloom and are stunning.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!
