Tic Tac Toe Time at Repeat Impressions

Hi - today's posting is a little late -- but here goes.  Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions gave us this Tic Tac Toe for this weeks challenge.

And here is my card:



I cut out the Large Snowflake and Small Snowflakes plus a few Snowflakes from the Penguin Series with my Circut Maker and Got Snow sentiment.  My Tic Tac Toe is Snowflakes, pearls and silver with glitter and embossing thrown in.

I thought about some of my friends in the Northeast who were slammed with snow this past week.  Hope they are seeing some sunshine.

Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions

Good Morning friends!  There's not a better way to begin the New Year than endeavoring to accomplish some New Year's resolutions!  One of mine is to sent out thank you cards.  With the help of a few Repeat Impressions stamps and this technique I'll be able to get that done pretty quick.

Here are the supplies you will need:

1. Background stamp - I've used Flower Power Background
2.  Sentiment stamps - I've used Thanks a Bunch and Hello
3.  Stamp positioner - I used a Misti
4.  Ink
5. Coloring Medium - here I used Copics










The stamped background was quickly colored - took me about 20 minutes to do both these.
The images were sliced about 1/3 of the way and placed on 4.25 x 5.5 cards

Small borders in black and designer paper were added.
Sentiments were stamped using my Misti and some enamel dots and clear drops were added so in less than 30 minutes I had 4 cards ready to go.



Thanks for looking at my Project of the Week.

Here is the sketch
And here is my card.  (my computer has been in the repair shop, so quality of photo is not as good)
Of course, I just had to use the sentiment "Joy to the world".  I used one of the dies from Wendy's Stitched Flip Card dies and then 2 from another set.  Wendy's was perfectly sized!  The cut out world was popped up on foam dots.

Project of the Week

Hey -- Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions let me do the Project of the Week for this week and I'm crazy about it.  I'll be doing some experimenting with it and here are my first attempts.

Ok - I love, love the new stitching dies - but Holy Toledo! they are expensive.  I want a leaf stitching die and just the dies alone were $24.00.  So I came up with this idea.

Here are the supplies you will need

Tracing wheel (the kind you use for pattern marking)
Favorite image (stamped already)
A little black ink
An old mouse pad
 Get Well stamp, and Silhouette Maple Leaf.

First gently ink up the wheel (just like you would do a brayer) - I used a little ink dew drop - because I didn't know if it would cut the ink pad.
Here I used a ruler on top of the mouse pad to make sure I did it straight

Here I did it slowly using curves.

Heart image

Here I did it using the leaves - this was my goal!
Here are the leaves and small rectangle finished.


 Here is the card I did using the technique.

This also used the word Happy from a Happy Everything sentiment and some alphabet letters.  I attached a Starbucks card.

Thanks for looking at my project - hope you give it a try.

Falling for you........

Today for the  Repeat Impressions Challenge, Laurie, one of the Rock Star Designers gave us the challenge to make a card with leaves, fall or autumn themed.  I saw a technique a few weeks ago I wanted to try.  So here is my card.  Actually this technique ends up with two cards.


I used two sentiments Autumn's splendor.... which is from a Flip Set called Autumn Flip set but centered perfectly in the middle of the heart and For the Beauty of.....  The images are from a cool stamp called Foliage Negative (which I selectively inked up), Oak Leaf and Falling Leaves.  On one card I used an embossing folder and then I added a few sequins to each card.

This was a fun challenge for me because I got to use a new technique.  You don't have to use Repeat Impression stamps but if you do, your name will be entered twice (2x) for a random drawing for a really nice gift certificate from Repeat Impressions.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.
