What If? Wednesday!

Here's my last post of 2011!  Where has the year gone!?  Today we have another What If Wednesday sketch for you at The House That Stamps Built!  Head on over there to see the sketch and get the details!

For my take on the sketch I have used some paper from the local craft store that I just had to pick up! :)  I thought it nice and festive at the time, and it just worked perfectly with Repeat Impressions stamp 2104-H Boy with Sled.
Head on over to The House That Stamps Built to see the other DT samples and check out the sketch!  I hope everyone has a great New Year!

Repeat Impressions - Designer Choice Challenge

Today over at The House That Stamps Built our lovely and talented Makiko has challenged us to make a shaped card this week!  

I have used nestabilities labels 8 set to make my shaped card.  The overlays on the front is dry embossed with the dots embossing folder.  The front panel used Repeat Impressions stamp 2719-K Lg Pine Tree in different shades of blue to add depth and dimension.  A little diamond dust on the trees and ribbon finishes it off!

I hope everyone is getting excited for Christmas!  I know I am!

Good morning!  Sorry this post is so late, but I have finally managed to get the kids all packed for school and they are out waiting for the bus!  No "work" for me today, but I am working like crazy trying to get the house clean and the baking done for our Christmas party next week!

Repeat Impressions - What if Wednesday

Hello and happy Wednesday to you all!  Today at The House That Stamps Built we are celebrating Wednesday by hosting our bi-weekly What If Wednesday sketch challenge!
The sketch this time around is as follows:

Have a great time with this one!  For my card I have used Repeat Impressions stamp 8402-M My Sunshine.  I loved coloring this stamp with my copics, and thought that the face on this sunflower would be perfect to put a little bit of crystal effects to "pop" it up!

I hope you enjoy the rest of the design team samples when you stop by The House That Stamps Built!  Have a great rest of the week!

Repeat Impressions SOTW - Cats Will Be Cats

There's another stamp of the week over at Repeat Impressions today!  This week we are showcasing the stamp 1017-H Cats Will Be Cats.  You can find it here at the Repeat Impressions store.  Details on this promotion are available at the blog, The House That Stamps Built.

Here's my card:

I have used a rub-on set I found at a local craft store to pair with this image.  The words and the tree are part of the rub-on set.  I really saw this cat in my mind as having to have a Christmas tree to play under!  Paper is from Stampin' Up and the ribbon is from my stash.  After I put this card together I sprayed it with a pearl coat spray.

Please come over to The House That Stamps Built to check out the rest of the design team samples!
