Tic Tac Toe

Hey Stamping Friends -- It's time for Repeat Impressions Tic Tac Toe Challenge -- these are always so much fun.  We always have a great variety of projects and it's interesting to see what everyone does.  Here is the grid.

And here is my card:
The line I chose was Red & Black, Hearts and Patterned Paper.  I tried to keep this simple so that I could get it in the mail quickly.  I used little cut out hearts and the Be My Valentine sentiment stamped in black on some vellum.  

Are you finishing up your Valentines?  How about posting one of them for 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 at Repeat Impressions

It's time for one of the Rock Star Designers at Repeat Impressions to issue a challenge.  It is Heather's turn and she issued the challenge to create a project using "Pink and/or Red".  So here is my take on her challenge.


I stamped a background stamp called Flower Power Background  and over that I stamped the Ruffled Heart Border which I colored with Copic markers and cut out with a Cricut Maker.  Then I stamped the Be My Valentine sentiment on a tag and tied with a bow.

Are you making Valentines?  Here is your opportunity to 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 Challenge at Repeat Impressions

Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions has a sketch challenge for us.  Here is her sketch:
There are so many possibilities with this one.  Here is my take on it.
I'm making Valentine cards for my friends and grandkids this week and I love the sentiment called Our Friendship...... and the little Patch Work Heart. I cut out two of them and covered them with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.  I also used a Background Fill-in called  Random Hearts. - It is so easy to make background layers with this stamp.

It would be so inspiring for you to join us 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

Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions is allowing me to pick a few stamps that I enjoy working with.  I challenged myself to make a card with no images, just making a sentiment the focal point of the card.  In order to really highlight the sentiment, I used some of Wendy's frames - love, love, love these frames.  Here is what I did.

I am just crazy about the Just Hand over the stamps sentiment.  There is a huge category of stamping verses and sayings - check out Stamping Verses and Stampers Christmas Carols - really cute and some really funny!  The frame for this one is called Billboard Border.

This one uses the large thanks from the set of unmounted stamps called Thanks... and the frame is from the Oval and Circle frame set.

The last card uses the sentiment called Thinking of you and sending.  I used one of the smaller ovals in the Oval and Circle frame set.

Thanks for looking at my cards.  Check out the new Oval Frame Set and Rectangle Frame Set  Wendy has created and get inspired!

Anything Goes this Week!

Hey - Stamping Friends - today at Repeat Impressions Wendy has let us go wild with this challenge - ANYTHING GOES!  Show us what you have been working on!  

Here is what I did.

I worked on learning how to do pop and twist cards.  I made this for my sister because they are in the process of selling their home and hitting the road to travel in a Fifth wheel.  Life is going to get interesting for them.   I used the stamps FifthWheel with pickup, East Africa Map ( I don't think you can tell it's Africa because of the way the die cut was placed), and the sentiments Travel Memories and Travel Light 

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.

Anything But a Card

Good morning friends!  Today our challenge at Repeat Impressions is Anything But a Card.  Here is my project.  These are a few of my grandkids.


I used the stamps

SnowGlobe 8901-L
Merry Christmas  8904-I (part of a sentiment called from one flake...)


I cut the globes with my Cricut Maker - but these can easily be fussy cut.  I also used a die to cut a circle out in the middle of the globe and make little shaker cards using clear plastic and a few glitter sprinkles and stars.  I attached some tinsel string to hang on my Christmas Tree.  A few I left plain, on a few some comic markers were used to color the base to look like wood.

This would be a good week to join us in this 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

Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions is letting me pick a few stamps and show how I've used them. 

Here is a small Travel Journal I've made.  The big 12x12 photo albums have become too much for me to do and they take up so much room in my bookcase so I've started making these little albums.  I print the pictures out on a home printer and cut them so they are about 3x2 inches.  I use a Canon Selphy or an LG pocket printer.  They are many, many models and some start at 72.99.  This little book measures 3.5x5 and has 18 pages and has lots of room for pics of my summer in Maine.  Here are just a few of them.





The stamps I used are
East Africa Map - I think it works well as just a map - not necessarily used for Africa
Travel Memories
Maine Lobster (I used the word Maine only)
Small Blueberry Cluster
Maine the way Life Should Be
Beautiful Days (love this script)
Cheers

I will be making another one of these for my Christmas pics.  It's so much fun to match up the pics with sentiments and little images. -- And Repeat Impressions is chock full of great ones.  Thanks for looking at my little album.
