Hi blog friends!!! 

There are some changes in challenges coming over at The House That Stamps Built and I think you're going to love them.  

Wednesdays there will be either a sketch challenge, a color challenge a designer's choice challenge or a photo inspiration challenge.  Mondays will still be the Project of the Week hosted by a Rock Star.  So stay with us for some great challenges and lots of fun and join in.  You could win some awesome Repeat Impression Stamps if you're picked as a winner in the card entries.  All the details will be posted at The House for each challenge.

This week is our first color challenge and the colors are blue, silver, white.  

I had such fun creating this card for the challenge.  Repeat Impressions has so many fantastic critter stamps and this is one of my faves.

I used a few strips of Washi tape for layers of "mattresses" for this cute guy.  I heat embossed the sentiment RI # 423-G "May All Your Dreams", with JudiKins "Detail Silver" ep after stamping it with VersaMark Ink.  The Cat image RI #6220-L "Comfy Cat" was stamped using Memento Ink and then colored with Copic Markers.  I fussy cut him out and popped him up on dimensional tape.  For a finishing touch I added some silver sequins, a few blue "Metallic Inspirations" I got from Creative Inspirations Paint and touches of silver Viva Glitter Pen.  

I hope you'll come on over and play along with the new color challenge.  In the meantime, for some incredible eye candy for this challenge, check out the Rock Stars

Hi there blog friends!!!!

I hope you've had a great start to the new year. 

There's a new clean and simple challenge being offered at Outlawz Challenges.  It's easy and a lot of fun! 

Washi Tape has popped into our lives and is being used in numerous ways from brightening switch covers and electrical wire to jazzing up your cellphone cover.  This week's challenge is to use washi tape on your card or project. 
So dig out that Washi tape (or make some) and come on over and play along with us. 
Stamps:  "Whale You Be Mine" by Lawn Fawn.  The Washi tape bg was cut strips from two "shape'n tape" collections by We R Memory Keepers (one yellow, one black), which can be purchased in many places, including Amazon.  The floral strip of Washi tape is one I picked up in a discount bin some where (not sure where).  The whales were colored with Copic Markers.  The tiny felt heart was punched.  Also used: Spellbinder Labels 22.
Come on over and play along with this fun challenge. 
I'm entering this card in CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC 135 Use felt and sequins
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a fabulous week!
