Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

Hey Friends!  Repeat Impressions has given you the chance to win $25.00 - Here's how:  Make a card with this Tic Tac Toe grid in mind.  


Here is what I did.
I used the Dew Drops, Texture and Off the Edge line.  The sentiment is called Christmas in the heart which I stamped on vellum and the Vase of Tulips image.  I'm trying to do a few non-traditional colored Christmas cards this year.  I thought with a different colored background this would be good for fall - depending on what colors used on the vase and flowers.  The flower centers have the tiny clear dew drops.

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.

Bear Hugs from Repeat Impressions

Hahaha - isn't this the cutest?  Today Cheri one of the Rock Star Design Team Members at Repeat Impressions issued the challenge to make a card with a bear!  What a cute, cute idea and it fits into my Thanksgiving dinner theme.  I am doing woodland creatures - which Repeat Impressions has some amazing images and sentiments.  I made place card holders - here they are:

I have to tell you these were so much fun to make and color.  I used my maker to cut the Bear Banners out, colored with copics and put on folded cardstock.  Check out all the really cute Bear Stamps that Wendy has created.  So many.....so little time!

The colors I'm using for Thanksgiving are green, khaki and brown.  It is one of the grandkids responsibility to write the names while a few of the adults fix lunch.  The only responsibility the boys have is to watch football!  It's a wonderful family time for us!

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.

Good morning, Friends!  Today is Sketch Challenge Time at Repeat Impressions.  Here is the sketch Wendy has prepared for us.
And here is my card.  It was created for some friends in Colorado -- who already have snow!  YIKES!  This uses the Penguin images -- which I love called Knit Cap Penguin, Ear Muff Penguin and Snowflakes - which I cut apart and stamped individually in different colors of blue and I added the sentiment "Got Snow".  The Penguins were cut out using my Maker.

Pick of the Week Stamp from Repeat Impressions

Good Morning!  Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions is allowing me to pick a few stamps to showcase.  I'm taking the opportunity to make my Christmas tags.  I always postpone wrapping my Christmas gifts and usually find myself wrapping late into the night.  This year - at least I'm going to have my tags made. 

Here are the stamps:
All of us....
Santa Hat Penguin
Candy Cane Penguin
Merry Christmas
Believe
Do Not Open
Blue Spruce












Other supplies:
Red, Green, Black Ink
Stamping Platform - Misti
Tag Dies
Copics
Christmas Ribbon for ties
Star sequins
Wink of Stella pen


First I die cut 3 different tags, cutting them 8 different times - this took about 10 minutes
Then using a stamping platform (Misti) I stamped all the tags.  Next I quickly colored the few that needed it with copics.  Most I just stamped with colored ink.  This took about 10 minutes also.











I used Christmas colored or gold cardstock - making sure the back side was white or cream (2 were red and 1 clear cardstock).





























The last step was to tie ribbon on all tags, add little stars on top of the trees, and use Wink of Stella on a few to highlight.

In less than 30 minutes I had 24 tags made.  I think having all the supplies out and organized made this go quickly.  I felt like I had accomplished a lot making nice little stacks of tags.

Thanks for looking at my tags.

Stamp A Faire 2018

Hello, well I finished the last of my projects for Papertrey Ink's Stamp A Faire 2018.  This year there were not too many projects and I finished them all the same day.  I chose not to go in person but joined on their live streaming via Facebook.

First up was paper making by Heather which was on Friday night -- some of mine are still drying, so I'll get that pic posted as soon as they are completely dry.  Later on I will use a die and make cards with this.



On Saturday morning our first project was a flower wreath by Lizzie Jones - this was by far my favorite one.  Here is my wreath - I made it in fall colors

Next up was water your flowers with Betsy Veldman - another favorite for me.  She gave very clear instructions and was fun while I learned a lot from her.

Planting your garden with Dawn Mcvey was so sweet because I was thrilled to see her doing so well after being a transplant patient.  God answered so many of her (and lots of others) prayers.  She is really a walking sweetness straight from God.
Whimsey Pop Up with Lexi Daley was next - she's so cute and funny.  I enjoyed listening to her interactions with the participants.  Did my box in fall colors.
Our last - but certainly not least was the amazing Heather Nichols with Making a Journal - Now this was right up my alley and I loved every minute of it.  Not all the supplies were included in the project bag, so I did a little improvising and chose a different fabric.
I felt like all the projects were doable and very interesting.
