No Tricks - Just Treats at Repeat Impressions

 Boo!  This week the Rock Star Designers from Repeat Impressions want to show you how to make your Halloween a little special by challenging us to show a "Trick or Treat" - it can be a card or a treat holder - show us what you got!

I'll make Trick or Treat Boxes for my great grandchildren - here are the boxes.  They are about 2x2 and will hold 4 of the little snickers treats.

I used the Trick or Treat Sentiment by stamping it on the side of a box die.  Each side has a picture or a word.  The pumpkin is called Round Pumpkin and I also used the Goofy Face.  I stamped the Frankenstein Face on 2 of them.  The category has a ghost, a witch, a Dracula, a RIP tombstone and several others that would fit on one of the sides of any little box.  Check the Category Halloween out!

We would like for you to  join us in this weeks challenge and show us some Treats - No Tricks.  It's fun, and you could be the winner of a nice gift certificate for Repeat Impressions Stamps.  If you use Repeat Impressions Stamps, your name will be entered twice in the random drawing.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.

Feature a Creature at Repeat Impressions

 Hello friends.  This week's challenge at Repeat Impressions is a bitter sweet one for me. Wendy would like for us to feature a creature - any creature from Ants to Zebras.  Show us what you got!

 This summer my 18 year old cat Purdy crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.  She had been so sick and weak for so long.  I'm sad about her but so glad that she is not hurting any more.  So this is my card featuring her.  

The sentiment is called Chicken Soup/kittens and the cat is called Sittin Pretty - of course I call it sittin Purdy.

What a great week for you to  join us in this weeks challenge.  It's fun, and you could be the winner of a nice gift certificate for Repeat Impressions Stamps.  If you use Repeat Impressions Stamps, your name will be entered twice in the random drawing.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.

Pick of the Week

 Hi - today it's my turn at Repeat Impressions to pick a stamp and make a project.  I knew right away the stamp I wanted to pick.  I wanted to use the Red Fox because almost everyday this summer we saw one wandering in the neighborhood.  Here are two cards I made.


Featured Stamp: Red Fox
 other stamps:  Happy Birthday
                         Large Pine Tree
                         For the Beauty
                         Balloon Silhouette

These all were both one layer cards and really quick.  Take a look at the Repeat Impressions catalogue on line and I know you will find a perfect sentiment to go with the Red Fox.

Thank you for looking at my project.

Think Pink Challenge

 Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions has challenged us to a "Think Pink Challenge".  Show us your pink - flowers, umbrellas, whatever you would like.  

Here is a card I made

The flower is Daffodils.  Oh yes, I know daffodils are yellow - but I took some "artistic liberties" and colored them pink - couldn't help myself.  The sentiment is from the Cancer & Caregivers collection called Inspiration.  If you know anyone affected by Cancer or is a Caregiver this is a great place to find inspiration to encourage them.  Take a look.

The Rock Star Designer Team would like for you to  join us in this weeks challenge.  It's fun, and you could be the winner of a nice gift certificate for Repeat Impressions Stamps.  If you use Repeat Impressions Stamps, your name will be entered twice in the random drawing.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.

Hello Friends!  How is your day going? Today Wendy's Rock Star Design team at Repeat Impressions has a great challenge for us this week!  It's OUTDOOR - anything that speaks to you about outdoors.  This summer our family kayaked some and it was so much fun!  We did ocean kayaking.  It was so much easier than I thought it would be - even for this old lady.  If you ever get the chance just go!

Here is my card:

I used an image called Kayaker and a sentiment (one of my favs) called Though we travel.. and the frame is Dotted Rectangle Frame.  I covered the map with a piece of vellum and heat embossed the sentiment.


 This would be a great week to  join us in this challenge.  It's fun, and you could be the winner of a nice gift certificate for Repeat Impressions Stamps.  If you use Repeat Impressions Stamps, your name will be entered twice in the random drawing.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.

I made a mini slimline card.  The stamp is "believe in".  It is from the Legacy Series - check this category out - it has very interesting sentiments (great fonts) and amazing images.  I used 2 papers (on top of my card) and I made the two pumpkin embellishments from the Tall and Round Pumpkins by cutting them out and coating with glossy accents. The twine and sequins are the 2nd and 3rd embellishments.

May Mondays

 Hi fellow stampers!  Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions  is allowing us to show off a card we have made in the past.  I picked this one from March 2017.  With the legal size cards being so popular, I thought this would make a good repost.  The bright colors are exactly what we need.

It is legal size and I've used the sentiment called Beauty of Springtime.  It has a Happy Easter Greeting at the bottom, but I did a little masking so that that part was not on this card.  It started out as a masculine card - but somehow morphed into more of a feminine one.  Go figure.... I used scraps of a card pad, cut them thin and lined them up.

Next time my plan is to post one from 10 years ago!  --- Stamping and card making has changed a bit since then!  Gotta run.....


Thanks for looking at my "repeat" card - have a HAPPY stamping day.
