Good Morning!  Love is in the air!  Can you feel it?  Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions has a tic tac toe challenge for us.  Here it is:
I decided to do Water colors, Pink and Hearts.  Here is my card:
I used a piece of water color paper that used a saran wrap technique. The large heart called Ruffled Border Heart was the perfect size for the center of the card.  The heart was fussy cut,  popped up with some foam tape and the letters were die cut.

Your project needs to follow the tic tac toe shown above.   Let your imagination run wild!!   We look forward to seeing what you will do with the challenge.  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.

Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions

Hi, today it's my turn to do Project of the week for Repeat Impressions- a few week's ago I made a phone cover for the weekly challenge and I've had several people ask how I did it.  Today I'll show you the easy-peazy way.  

I bought a clear blank phone case.  They are called called a "jelly" or clear case.  This one came from the Dollar Store and cost $1.19.  Amazon also has them for $5.00 to $6.00.




I stamped the images of the flower and leaf from the Flower Power Separates on a piece of card stock with a little masking I filled the piece of card stock with the images.  They were colored with copics and covered with Wink of Stella (unfortunately you can't see the pretty sparkle). 

The next case I made used the Hummingbird image and Dreams Take Flight...  






The clear phone case is packed with a styrofoam piece and I used this to traced on the back side of my colored card stock(or you could use your phone to trace), cut it out and used a corner rounder on each corner.   


  I traced around the camera hole and carefully cut out.


  The piece of card stock was inserted into the plastic cover and then put on my phone.  Thanks for looking at my project.  I hope you have as much fun as I did making these cases.

Good Morning and HAPPY NEW YEAR!  What a great year it has been!  For the first challenge of the year Shirley, one of the Repeat Impressions Rock Star Designers, has challenged us to make a winter card - anything but Christmas.

In East Texas, we don't get snow - so it's always up to our imagination to play in snow, but Repeat Impressions' cute, cute penguins make it easy to imagine.  So here's my card

I used Ear Muffs Penguin, Knit Cap Penguin, and the cute Small Penguins (I call them twins-tooooo cute).  I also used the Snowflakes stamp and the Got Snow sentiment.

Just like I'd invite you to play in the snow, I'd like to invite you to play along with us in this Winter Challenge!

Repeat Impressions tags

Today, I'd like to share a project made with stamps from Repeat Impressions.  Often when visiting someone in the hospital or meeting someone for lunch, I like to give cut flowers from my yard.  Here are some hang tags I made for those flowers.  I first stamped the images and sentiments then used a few watercolors and using a few paint sprinkles to complete.

I used images from Flower Power Separates, the sentiments Hang in there...., Merry Christmas Postage, Sending healing.... and Today and Always.....

I'm hoping that each one of my readers has the best Christmas ever, remembering why Christ is in Christmas.

Blessings,
Joy

Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions

Good Morning!  Wendy owner of Repeat Impressions asked me to do the Project of the Week and I'm excited to show you how to make a background using watercolors and a stencil.  Here are the supplies you will need:

painters tape
water colors - any kind
Bristol watercolor card stock
a board to tape project onto (I used the back of a small clipboard)
broad paint brush
smaller paint brush
any stencil
Repeat Impressions stamps
Tape your card stock onto the board with the painter's tape.  This will help your card stock not warp.
Put a good coating of water with the broad brush onto the card stock.
Drop different colors onto the coated card stock and let the colors run.  The back of the clip board will be slanted and will allow the paint colors gently blend together.

Tape your chosen stencil to the card stock and squish it down tightly to smash colors together.
Allow to dry naturally or use a heat gun to dry.
After it is dry carefully pull off stencil and embellish.

Here are several others using a flower stencil and a star background.  I used the sentiments called A Birthday is.... and For unto you....

I hope you give this technique a try. Don't be surprised if you get carried away like I did!  Thanks for looking at my project.  Have a Happy Stamping Day!
