Here are some cards I created using the new stamps and some Shimmering Bliss sprays.

I used Distress Oxide Inks to spong a "light" area on the corder of this card after stamping and masking the gorgeous image "African Beauty".  The sentiment I used is another new stamp "Light Remains".  

This photo dosen't show it well, but I used the new Shimmer Bliss Spray "Imperial Yellow" on a yellow card stock panel and it deepend the color and added incredible shimmer.  I absolutely LOVE these sprays.  The image is the new release stamp "Never Stop Making Wishes".  

My final card is using the new stamp set "Sunset" by Rita Barakat.  I first stamped the image and used Copic Markers to color it, then masked the image and sponged in the background using Distress Oxide Inks.  I added some water on a makeup brush I bought at the dollar store and used it to drop in some water.  I used a paper towel to soak up the water and then dried the panel with my heat gun.  Once dry, leaving the mask in place, I sprayed Shimmer Bliss Iridescent over the panel.  Talk about "WOW"!!!!  These shimmer sprays are incredible!  I stamped the sentiment "You Are Amazing" on a piece of black card stock and embossed it with white ep.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Now please hop on over to the super talented Stephanie's Blog.  She has some gorgeous projects to show you.  


Hello House Friends!!!! 

We've been given a challenge by our talented team mate Joy for a designer's choice challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  Her challenge?  "Circles"....that's it, circles!!!  You can do this!!!! 

I wanted to try something different for Joy's challenge.  I have seen some stamp collages on Pinterest and I thought I might like to try my hand at it using "found items" around my house as well as these fabulous Repeat Impression Stamps:  RI#5016-N "Genealogy", 5812-I "Compass", 2704-H "Sailboat", 3918-F "Wind In My Sails" and 3404-C "Random Dots".  

The colored images were colored with my Polychromo pencils and blended with Gamsol. The additional circles were created using tops or bottoms of bottles I had on my desk.  The colored circle inside the upper circle is actually a tiny wood circle I colored with looks like a piece of fuzz in this photo....note to self, I need a better camera.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll take a few minutes and visit the blogs of my team mates....they are incredibly talented artists of stamps.  

Join Joy's Circle challenge (and all other challenges this month - we have a new challenge every Wednesday) and enter yourself in the drawing at the end of the month for a $25.00 gift certificate for your own collection of Repeat Impression Stamps.    All the details can be found at THE HOUSE.
