Hello everyone!!! 

I'm in love with the face stamps from the Palettini collection from Technique Junkies Stamps and this one "Let's Face It 4" in particular.  Isn't she stunning?  I paired her with the sentiment "You Are Amazing", which I thought was so appropriate for this face.  

Copic markers were used to color in the face.  If you like to color, these stamps are perfect for that, and this stamp really makes it easy to create a card for someone special.

Hello House Friends, 

It's Wednesday and time for another challenge at The House That Stamps Built blog. 

Here is a stamp collage card I made for this challenge using RI#6205-M "Mr. Goof" , RI#8215-D "Meow", RI#631-G "Single Rose", RI#5131-I "Pine Needle Sil." and RI#6806-U "Sheet Music".  

To begin, I first made a bg with a light water color wash on a piece of watercolor paper.  Then drying the piece and stamping that adorable cat face with Archival Ink.  I made a mask for him and stamped the other stamps around the masked area to create the collage.  I removed the mask and using watercolor pens, I colored in the cat face and the roses.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I used Copic Markers to color the eyes on Mr. Goof.  

Sadly, this is my last post as a Repeat Impressions Rock Star.  It's been quite a run and I've enjoyed each and every moment I've been on this team.  I will miss hanging around with some of the most talented paper crafters on the planet.  They've all inspired me.  

I'm forever grateful to Wendy Wyman for taking a chance on me 8 years ago, and giving me one of the greatest opportunities in my crafting life and for trusting me to show off her awesome stamps.  

Thank you for stopping by each week and for taking time to leave me a comment.  I appreciate you all so very much.  I will miss you too.

Hello blog friends!!! 

I've got a quick post using more of the fabulous stamps from the Technique Junkies Stamps March and April 2019 releases.  

A simple watercolor wash for a background behind the beautiful "Sketched Tulip" , add the wonderful sentiment "Wildly Capable"  (which I did a little surgery on).  Add a few splatters with black acrylic paint for added detail and there you have a clean and simple card.  

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you found some inspiration.  

Enabler alert!  You can purchase these stamps and any stamps from the Technique Junkies Stamps store and get a full 10% your entire purchase by using my personal discount code TJ10CHERI at checkout.  Enjoy!!!!

Hello everyone!  Cheri here with my pick of the week for you for The House That Stamps Built and Repeat Impressions Stamps.

The stamps I used here are discounted 20% for one week only, so don't miss out on this opportunity.  

Here in Maine, it's all about the blueberries and Wendy, has some gorgeous blueberry stamps.  If you like to color, these are exceptional stamps to color with.  I had such a fun time creating these cards and matching envelopes.  

I used Copic Markers to color all the images and (here's a tip) in order to keep the markers from bleeding through on the envelopes, I placed a piece of plastic packaging inside the envelop while I colored.  

I hope you were inspired by my creation with these blueberry stamps and I hope you take the opportunity to grab them for yourself while this 20% discount is available.  You won't be sorry.

Hello House friends!!! 

Our Wednesday challenge this week is an inspiration challenge.  You pick from the inspiration board, what inspires your creative juices, then show off the results at The House That Stamps Built blog.  You never know, your entry into the challenge might just win you a $25.00 gift certificate to pick out some fabulous Repeat Impressions Stamps.    

Perhaps this card I made will help get your mojo going.  

My card uses the incredible RI#912-K "Tulip Bouquet", one of the many, many floral stamps available in the RI store.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and paired it with sentiment RI#1112-E "Just A Note".  This makes a lovely card for any occasion.  

Enabler alert!!!  If you'd like to get these stamps (or any Repeat Impressions stamps) for yourself, and you'd like a little discount, please use my discount code rr10cw.

After stamping and coloring the image on a separate card stock panel, I cut an identical size second panel and die cut an oval in the center.  I then took that panel and embossed it and finally adhering it over the image.  The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece and die cut then adhered to the front panel.  Very easy card to make.  

Here's your inspiration - let's see what you can create from it.  My inspiration came from the gorgeous colors and the flowers. 

There's more inspiration ideas for you at the blogs of my team mates.  Take a look and leave them some love.  I know they'd appreciate it.
