Hello blog friends!

I'm here with a very quick post - I saw the February challenge over at Altenew and thought I'd play along.  I absolutely LOVE these stamps and am having a great time playing with the ones I have.  

The set I used in this card are from the Persian Motifs set.  

The challenge is to use this inspiration

Here is my card 

The images were stamped with VersaMark and then I used Ranger detail gold ep and heat set them.  I used my Distress Markers and water brush to color the image...I was careful with the amount of water I used because this is not watercolor paper.  The cs is Neenah Solar White 110#.  The focal layer is from MFT Blueprints 15.  

Thank you for stopping by.

Hello blog friends!  

There's a new Sunday CAS challenge at Outlawz Challenges and I didn't want to miss the opportunity to tell you about it.  

It's an RAK (Random Act of Kindness) challenge and here is Pryn's challenge

This week we challenge you to create a CAS card or project to give as a RAK, otherwise known as a Random Act of Kindness.  Let's spread peace by sharing our art with others.  Any theme, any colors...keep it CAS and brighten someone's day just because :) 

I hope you'll find some time to play along with us.  

Here's my card.

The stamp set I used to make my card is from Mama Elephant called "Sweet Havana"  I also used the matching dies.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll come on over to the Outlawz CAS challenge and play along with us.  Submissions will be accepted until 12:00 midnight Saturday.  


Hello blog friends!  

It's Wednesday again and time for another What if? Wednesday challenge at The House That Stamps Built and today is a sketch challenge! 

Pretty straight forward sketch, don't ya think?  You can have some fun flipping this sketch in various ways or use it just like it is.  Either way, I hope you'll give it a try and enter your project over at The House.  You will then be in the running for a $25.00 gift certificate for some awesome Repeat Impression stamps.  Get the details at The House.  

Here's my card using this sketch

LOL!  Have you ever had a day when you look in the mirror and this sort of image is looking back at you and this is exactly what you were thinking?  I decided to have some fun with this sketch and use a stencil and stencil paste to create the side panel.  The stencil paste was white and I added some Perfect Pearls to get the color I wanted before stenciling it onto the card base.  

The image is RI #5306-J "Chimp".  After stamping the image I colored it with Copic Markers, then added some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to the entire face.  Using a classic round Spellbinder die, I cut it out and then pressed it into VersaMark ink, added some clear ep and heat set it for a high gloss appearance.  I framed it with the next sized classic round die in the set.  The sentiment is RI #7011-F "This Day".  

There's a 10% off Repeat Impressions stamps code on my side bar if you'd like to pick up some of these fabulous Repeat Impressions stamps.  I promise you will love them.  Just use the code rr10cw when checking out.   

Thanks for stopping by.  For more inspiration using this WIW sketch, have a gander at what the other Rock Stars have done with it.
