Hello House Friends!!!! 

Here we are at the final Wednesday for the month of February....that just flew by....and it's the all time favorite challenge Anything Goes!!!! 

We hope to see you over at The House That Stamps Built playing along with us; it's such a fun challenge.  You can still play along with any or all of the challenges this month, just get them loaded into the corresponding monthly posts  (Designer's Choice Challenge, Tic, Tac, Toe Challenge, Inpiration Challenge and now the Anything Goes Challenge).

Here's a card I made for the challenge to help inspire you.  

I think I was channeling my friend Vicki Dutcher.  Vicki uses bright colors so well and without any conscience effort on my part, boom....this appeared on my work area.  LOL.  

The background was masked and sponged using a variety of Distress Inks.  The comfy cat was stamped separately, colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut, then adhered to the background panel.  Both were then framed with a die cut frame.  

My team mates have some "blow you away" creations to show you.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you'll check out our challenge at THE HOUSE and join us.

Hey there House friends!!! 

It's Cheri and it's my turn to select some awesome Repeat Impressions Stamps for you this week, which you can purchase for 20% off....but hurry, the discount is only for one week!!! 

My picks are RI#4216-M Gray Wolf, 815-N Moose, 4218-K Whitetail Deer and Fawn and 1112-E Just a Note.  

A little back story:  I was in a local Hallmark store a few weeks before Christmas this past year, picking up my traditional Hallmark tree ornaments, and I over heard a man blowing out frustrating groans while looking at the selection of packaged card sets.  He offhandedly said, "all I want is to find a package of note cards for a guy".  A sales clerk stepped over to him and asked if she could help and he told he was looking for a package of note cards for his son to give his male teacher for a Christmas gift.  

Well, that's all this card maker needed to hear to set the wheels in my head turning, and I thought for my next POTW I would create just such a package of cards, and this is what I came up with.  There are two of each image in the package for a total of 6 cards.  

To create this set of cards here are the supplies I used:  My selection of stamps, an ink (VersaFine Smoky Grey) for sponging the background, darker ink for stamping, and colored pencils for coloring (you could use whatever coloring medium you like).  

I made the masks using a circle die and an oval die and cut them on simple copy paper...the thinner the better then sponged the ink inside the mask.   

Using my MISTI stamp positioner (extremely helpful for this technique), I stamped the image within the area of the sponging where I wanted it to be.  I did this with each image.  

I used the same color of pencils to lightly color in specific areas of each of the images for highlight and continuity.  I kept the colors neutral and earthy in order to give the stamps the spotlight.  

Here they are singly...
