Hello House friends!!!! 

It's another Wednesday challenge for you at The House That Stamps Built.  I hope you're playing along with us each week throughout the month.  

For every weekly entry into our challenge, you'll be entered into a drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate for any Repeat Impressions stamps of you choosing.  And, you have ALL MONTH to enter any or all of the challenges!!! 

This week we're challenged with an inspiration board.  Here is a card I created using the inspiration.  The RI Stamps I used were RI#9307-L "Dress Form", RI#5111-H "Star Sil (lg) and the sentiment is RI#4124-H "When You Wish".

To create this card, I stamped the dress form and large star in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder.  Then, with a star stencil, I sponged Delicata gold ink through the stencil to build the star background.  The dress was colored with Prismacolor pencils and the shading was done with Copic Markers.    

The image panel was die cut with a frame die which allowed me to sponge more gold ink around the edge of the panel.  The frame was popped up with mounting tape before adhering to the center image. For a final touch of glitz, I used a Viva Glitter Pen and dotted some sparkle between the stars.  

Here's the inspiration board for this week's challenge  

 Come on over and play along with us - for more inspiration visit the blogs of my team mates.  

For all the details on entering this challenge and all our challenges each month, as well as a Monday, weekly PICK OF THE WEEK for discounted stamps, head on over to THE HOUSE.  

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hello Junkies!!! 

This new stamp "You Stole My Heart" from the January 2019 new release is cuteness overload and what an adorable Valentine greeting it makes for any age!  

I swear each month's new release of stamps is so loaded with creative possibilities that it makes me want them all.  You too?  I get giddy thinking of all the happy cards I could make with them.  But, it's not just the new ones....there are so many fabulous older stamps in the TJ Store too, as well as TJ's own Shimmering Bliss sprays (I used "Festive Flamingo" sprayed through a stencil for the background on my card below) and lots of other products and stamping accessories we all love have and play with.   

If you'd like to shop a little and would like a discount to the stamps and some of the products, here's my personal discount code for you, TJ10CHERI.  Go shopping and have some fun creating with these wonderful stamps.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you found some inspiration.
