Thinking of you

 
 
It's been awhile since I mad a card just for fun and played along in some of my
 favorite challenges so I started this card yesterday and finished
it today.  It was nice to just relax and create.

Wine for two

 No automatic alt text available.

Tic-Tac-Toe time at The House That Stamps Built this week!  I made a fun fold card and used a new embossing folder I've been wanting to play with. I used white core paper so I could sand the embossed grapes and leaves.  This was my first inking of Repeat Impressions: 9507-P, Wine for Two, I used glossy accents on the wine, added a bit of faux stitching to the wine label, some dew drops and twine to complete the card and my tic-tac-toe!

House of Cards November

Please note this is my second post today.

November 2017 House of Cards Challenge
Holiday and/or Colors


What a fun photo Christmas and coffee together, what a great combination. Who can resist this, I know I can't. I went with the coffee theme and the Christmas colors from the photo adding in gold, Christmas needs sparkle.  My image is Sparkle and Sprinkle To Go Cup from the digital set Expresso Yourself.

Find Beauty

Designer Choice Challenge this week at The House That Stamps Built and Laurie has chosen: Falling for you: leaves, fall, autumn cards:



I am having so much fun with my Distress Oxide inks I started by painting a fall background and using a splatter brush (yes there is a Tim Holtz splatter brush just for this).  I then did an Oxide ink background in leaf colors and stamped it with Repeat Impressions:  3313-E, Oak Leaf 5 times and fussy cut and then placed those so they looked liked they were falling from a tree.


Join us in our challenge!  You can use any stamps but if you use Repeat Impressions Stamps you have double chances to win.  Check out my sidebar for a discount on any Repeat Impressions order.

Joy, Peace, Love

Anything goes this week at The House That Stamps Built.  I went with a Christmas card (working on building that stash up.)  I did a Distress Oxide background with large splatter on the first one and a mist on the second one.  I also used a shimmer mist, Frost on the first card, Sparkle on the second card. I varied the design a bit also on each card.  I used Repeat Impressions: 2103-M, These three gifts.

Hi everyone, it my week for the Monday Project of the Week for The House That Stamps Built. I went with a very easy fun fold card.

 Gather supplies, A2 card (4 1/4" by 5 1/2"), coordinating pattern paper: 1 design cut to 3" by 5 1/2"', and  1 1/4" by 5 1/2", coordinating piece cut to 1 1/4" by 5 1/2",spare white and coordinating cardstock for image of your choice to use with two die cuts of choice, one slightly larger to frame the other.

 Scor  1 1/4" from the edge of your card and fold back from the edge as shown above.


Glue matching pattern paper on the right and left sides as shown, coordinating paper in the center. Color and attach design of your choice.  I used Repeat Impressions 514W Prize Pumpkin colored with Copic markers.
