April 25, 2018 Anything Goes



This is the last week of April over at The House that Stamps Built and I decided to use a die of a bridge that I had cut one day when a friend was over.  I sponged water under the bridge with distress oxide inks and then sponged in the clouds.  I choose to use 9116-N Hot Air Balloon Cluster  which I cut the balloons apart to give me a bit more versatility in placement of the images.  For the sentiment I used 9104-G Soaring by to say Hi. 

I send out a lot of just thinking of you, just a note type cards as I am a chemo/senior angel so this one is ready to go out this week to my senior man in Canada. 

Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  Anything Goes,   as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions. 

If you look on my right side bar I also have a discounted coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.
Now why not take a look at our DT Rock Stars for inspiration and to get you started.

April 23, 2018 Happy Birthday


Another birthday card that has been mailed but not posted - and this one was such a fun card to make.  While one of my besties was out of town I had to mal her birthday card - well I had just gotten this "new" SU set and embossing folder and oh how pretty.  I colored the flowers and basket in copics, and as I had an oops I covered it up with a pretty little gold ribbon which covered very nicely and went with the card stock as well.

April 20, 2018 Wedding Card


One of my bestie's son is getting married the first part of May.  Since we won't be able to attend the wedding I went ahead and sent the wedding card and gift this week.  I am happy the way it turned out - and it really didn't take a lot of time.  The most time spent was where to place the flowers. 

While I had everything out I went ahead and made a Mother's Day card using the same layout.

April 18, 2018 Photo Inspiration




This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is an Inspiration Photo/Colors.  I went with a combination of the photo and colors.   

Orange sherbet anyone,  is what I thought of.  My ice cream cone 9008-N which is part of a Cool Treats  which has 3 images of ice cream treats.  I cut them apart so I could use them individually or as a group.  I also had a cute embossing folder with ice cream treats which I embossed on white core texture card stock and then sanded to bring out the images.  For my sentiment I used 9313-D
Sweet Treats.  I paper pieced the ice cream cone and then added a little tag with the sentiment and a piece of green/white bakers twine.  

 Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  our Photo Inspiration - as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.

April 15, 2018 Birthday Birdie


I looked at this SU Bird Banter set for a month or more before I ordered it and I am having a lot of fun using it.  I made SIL and my Senior Buddy both a card using this set.  I really didn't have a "bird" fun set - well take that back I have the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds.  I know SIL loved his and I think my Senior Buddy will enjoy getting his in the mail this week.

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Happy Spring





Oh my our challenge over at The House that Stamps Built is Tic-Tac-Toe and this is one if not my favorite challenge.  I went with the top row across - gems, bunnies, and pink (I really did use pink polka dots - the lighting just doesn't show pink. ).  I used 702-K Clover Bunny found here and 1301-F Happy Spring which is found here.  

I love FOLDS - fun folds, - they are a challenge for me and this is one of my new favorite folds, and I really don't know what it is called but what I love about it is it folds flat for mailing in an A2 envelope and stands up on its own for the recipient.  I am going to teach this at an upcoming class the end of April.  I will have everything cut and directions printed and then they will "follow the leader" me in making the score lines and putting it together.  

I colored the darling bunny with copics using Warm grays, I had watched a video on "how to make the bunny look furry".  Well the video was done by a true artist and this amateur artist (me) needs a LOT of practice.  Or maybe I need to watch the video again.

April 6, 2018 Spring Home Decor Blocks



OK - Totally "cased" from a friend - and I LOVE how it turned out.  I used SU large Alphabet and Colorful Seasons stamp set.  I used DP from my stash as well as pink and white CS.  I am going to start soon on my SUMMER letters - this can be used for all seasons and with 1 stamp set and 1 alphabet set you have got it made.  I see from my picture I need to adjust my I and N a bit but overall I am please.  Hubby made my block using a 2 x 4 cut - sanded - and spray painted.  My friend just made one this past week for the St, Louis Cardinal ball team


My husband would love this - so I will probably make this one as well.
