Today, Wendy owner of Repeat Impressions has asked Esther to lead the challenge and she has challenged us to "try a new technique".

I love velum and tried the technique of dry embossing as a background.  Here is my card

Anything Goes July Challenge

Good Morning stamping friends!  Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions has issued our monthly "Anything Goes" Challenge.  I have to tell you that I was so excited for this one because I did a project that was so much fun and I'm so glad to be able to share it!

I do a lot of family get togethers at our summer home in Maine and we go thru a lot of paper cups (being an island, we try to use as little plastic as possible).  I ordered some plain paper cups from Amazon - they were cheap.  When they arrived I felt like they looked cheap - so I got out my stamps and went to stamping!  I had so much fun and I did 250 cups in 15-20 minutes.  I had my stamps on stamping blocks and inked most of them in one color.  

Here are a few of them


 Here is a list of the Repeat Impressions sentiments and images I used.
Cheers
Why Limit
Laughter is the best
Friends and Wine
Wine Label
(these above are from the Wine Time Series)
Need a fire permit
Retirement
Maine
Lobster

What a fun week to join us in the Anything Goes Challenge.  You could win the $25.00 gift certificate that Wendy is offering in a random drawing.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.

Inspirational Challenge

Good Morning Stamping Friends!  How is your week going?  Today is Wednesday and Wendy has an Inspirational Challenge for us.  Here is the photo

Wow - What beautiful colors!  As i saw this - my first thought was ice cream -- but stamping and coloring ice cream would have made me stop to run go get some -- and that I don't need!  So I turned to gardening and flowers!  Here in the northeast flowers are blooming everywhere so here is a card.

This was watercolored softly with a lot white.  The images are from the Container Series - lots of options for jar fillers in this series and the sentiment is Wishing you... from the Quartet Complements Sentiment Series

Why not join us this week in the challenge --- you could win the $25.00 gift certificate that Wendy is offering in a random drawing.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.

Designer's Choice Challenge


Good Morning!  This is our Designer's Choice Challenge time at Repeat Impressions!  Donna's challenge to us was to use the colors Red White and Blue.  I consider myself pretty patriotic, but wanted something a little different so here is the card I made.


I used one of my favorite images called Compass and the stamped sentiment I thank my lucky...... on vellum and heat embossed.  I added a few silver star sequins to the blue designer paper.

This would be a good week to join in our challenge with your red white and blue projects.  Why not join us this week in the challenge --- you could win the $25.00 gift certificate that Wendy is offering in a random drawing.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.

Pick of the Week - Fairies in the Garden

Today it is my turn to pick a couple of stamps that Wendy owner of Repeat Impressions would like to feature.  I was so happy to do this because I wanted you to look at a few of the Garden Fairy stamps that Wendy has created.  I'm not really focusing on the sentiments because the fairies are so cute. I took 3 of them and made cards.  They are called

Fairy Kiss this was stamped, colored with copics and was so easily cut out.

Fairy's Lantern was stamped, colored with watercolor pens and put on some designer paper.

Fairy's Fun/Bumblebee was stamped on a tag, colored with copics and framed on black paper.



One of the sweetest ones is a fairy taking a little nap on top of a sunflower which I will post later -- you can check all of them out here - Garden Fairies Stamps.  I didn't focus on the sentiments because Repeat Impressions has so many sentiments that would be appropriate for any of these sweet stamps.  Thanks for looking at my cards.

P.S.  In case you are wondering:
Happy Birthday was masked
Sheet Music Background stamp was used on Fairy Lantern

Anything Goes Challenge

Good morning friends!  It's a great day for an "Anything Goes Challenge from Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions.  This is my favorite challenge because we can do anything we like, any size any stamps - anything goes!  Today I've got vintage on my mind, so I tried my hand at a little ink blending and a little victorian with some vellum (my favorite paper).



I used the Fan, Everyday Blessings sentiment from the Legacy Series and the Sheet Music background stamp that is also from the Legacy Series

Inspiration Challenge

Today Wendy owner of Repeat Impressions has issued an Inspiration Challenge.  Here is the inspirational photo
So what do you see?  I love these colors!  A touch of pastel with some bright colors.  Here is what I came up with.





This is the inside of the card:

The Jar with Lid is filled with Gum balls that I colored with copics and fussy cut and popped up on foam.  I stamped the Just a Note and then stamped the sentiment Thinking of you for the inside.

Designer's Choice Challenge

Hello friends!  Once a month Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions gives each Designer an opportunity to pick a challenge.  This week it is Patti's turn!  She wants us to make a card, layout or project and think "wings" --- Great challenge, Patti!

Of course my first thought turns to a card so this is my answer to her challenge

The green and white are vellum layers.  I stamped the Cat and Hummingbird image on vellum, heat embossed and then colored the backside with copic markers.  It makes for a more subtle coloring. The Thinking of you sentiment was heat embossed with white on black cardstock.  It is part of a larger sentiment that I masked because the "thinking of you" was the perfect size.

Why not join us this week in the challenge --- you could win the $25.00 gift certificate that Wendy is offering in a random drawing.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.

Sketch Week at Repeat Impressions

Good Morning friends!  Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions has a sketch challenge for us.  Here is her sketch

And here is my take on the sketch

I turned this one sideways.  The image is one of my favorites called Fawn.  I think some call it a line image which makes it super easy to color with copics, watercolors or pencils.  I didn't put a sentiment - just waiting for the need for the card and I'll put the sentiment on the inside so not to detract from the image.

Anything Goes Challenge

Hello, friends!  Today is Anything Goes Challenge.  These are wonderful time to experiment or an opportunity to use a new technique you've learned.  

I needed to make 30 little small thank you tokens that I leave with people on my way to California each year.  I give them to the flight attendants, pilots or anyone else who helps me along the way.  So this is what I made:

They are little tea bag holders.  They hold two tea bags.  I used the sentiment called Thanks So Much from the Quartet Compliments Series and the little Heart Tea Cup.  I used the sentiment on one side and the little tea cup on the other.
