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!

Dec 14th - What If Wednesday?

For my card I have paired Repeat Impressions image 8812-J Knit Cap Penguin (lg) with some paper and ribbon I picked up at a local craft store.  I loved the sketch and wanted to "wrap" up my card to make it look like a package!

Here's the awesome penguin up close! :)

Repeat Impression's SOTW - Snow Sledding

Good morning again!  Time again to show you another stamp of the week for Repeat Impressions!  Make sure you head on over to The House That Stamps Built to see how you can get 4712-J Snow Sledding at 50% off this week!

I have stamped 4712-J Snow Sledding on a wood "slice" my husband made.  He sliced a few of these so we could make ornaments out of them!  After stamping, the color is painted on.  I have sprayed a clear acrylic gloss to seal the paint on the wood.

Have a great day!

Totally Stampalicious Monday!

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!

Today at Totally Stampalicious we are dreaming of a white Christmas!  We would like to see some snow on your card/project. 

For mine I have used Scarlette Mistletoe.  You can find it here in the Totally Stampalicious store.  I have embossed my snow!

I would like to add this to the challenge over at Quirky Crafts.  They are looking for some snow as well! I also think this would work for the challenge over at Here Come the Boys; they say to make something for the men in your life, and I know the men in mine would enjoy this card! lol

Make sure you head over to the Totally Stampalicious blog and see all the design teams' awesome creations!
