By the Sea, By the Sea with Classy Cards 'n Such

Hi, Joy today.  I'm vacationing near the ocean and was totally inspired to get my sea or ocean supplies out - fortunately Classy Cards 'n Such has some really pretty stamps to help me create this card.

I tore strips of paper from two 6x6 paper pads from Graphic 45 - one is called Secret Garden and the other is Botanical Tea in shades of brown, teal and blue.  I stamped the focal image from Sea Shell Bay by Just Rite and a little Relax in the Sun sentiment.  I used a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-two for the main focal image and a round die from Spellbinders for the sentiment.  I layered the torn strips of paper, popped up the Sea Horse image and the round sentiment with the Large Joy Foam Pads and added a little bit of twine.

Now off - to listen to the ocean and read a good book.

Thanks for looking at my card, be sure to check out all these supplies at Classy Cards 'n Such - have a happy stamping day!

Summer Fun with Repeat Impressions


Today at Repeat Impressions, Brenda challenged us to show off our summer fun!  So many stamps to choose from - this was hard for me!!  I finally chose to use some of the stamps from the Sea Shell series.  One of my grandsons was determined to find a sand dollar this year when we were at Sand Beach in Acadia - and guess what -- he found several.  They were small, but he was so happy.  This card is to commemorate his find.


The stamps I used were Small StarfishSand Dollar, and Grass Border.  The sentiment is from the Legacy Text series called Simple Pleasures.  Check this series out.  There are some really good sentiments that can be combined with stamps and other sentiments you may already have.

Join in the challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions has a random name drawing and that name wins a great gift certificate.  Here is the list of Repeat Impressions Design Team members who have made something to inspire you.  Thanks - we look forward to seeing what you create.

Pick a Posey Challenge from Classy Cards 'n Such

Hello, Joy here today.  Great challenge for this week - we are to make a flower or flowers.  Classy Cards 'n Such has so many flower dies!  Check out the selection under Flowers, Leaves & Trees.  I saw a demonstration that showed how to make a flower without a specific flower die.  So I am giving it a try.  All you need is a circle die - any kind,  Classy Cards 'n Such has a great selection and I used a die by Spellbinders called Picot Edge Circle.  I cut the 3 largest ones in the set and cut into the circles and rolled each one up after inking the edges with a Mini Ink Blending Tool and Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

I cut the leaves from Build A Flower #1 Petals, stamped the sentiment from Mighty Tower by Inky Antics and cut it out using a Labels Eighteen frame by Spellbinders.  Leaving the die in place I inked the edges with the Mini Blending Tool using a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad and arranged the elements with the small Joy Foam Pads on a piece of designer paper from the Simple Stories 6x6 pad called Vintage Bliss.

We now invite you to join in this challenge.  Beverly, owner of Classy Cards 'n Such has great prizes with 7 or more players.  We would love to see what you do with the flower challenge!  Make a flower, and post it on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.  

Thanks for looking at my card - have a HAPPY stamping day!

Repeat Impressions Project of the Week

Hello, Joy here today.  Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions gave me the opportunity to do a Project of the Week.  I was reading about hot trends in card making and there was one trend I really liked.  It was watercoloring, so I am showing a watercolor technique using Repeat Impressions images.

Here is the list of supplies you might need:
water color paper
Tim Holtz Distress inks
spritz bottle of water
acrylic block




Ink up the acrylic pad and squirt it 5-6 times with the water mister and it should look like this:
Press the inked block onto the water color paper and lift up the block.  It will run and puddle, but that is what you want and it should look similar to this:

Let it dry and then layer several other colors, allowing it to dry between layers.  I got carried away and made a few.










Here are two cards.  I used versamark and black embossing powder for the images so they would stand out.


The Repeat Impressions stamps are Humpback Whale, Flowers, Love Much and Thanks (with a little masking) sentiments.
I hope this encourages you to try this technique. Thank you for looking at my card - have a happy stamping day.

Classy Cards 'n Such Red White and Blue Challenge

Hello friends, it's Joy today posting a card using supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  The challenge for this week was to use this inspirational photo.
  I know 4th of July is here, but I had a deadline on a birthday coming up so I made a birthday card instead of a holiday themed card.

Easy, easy to make:
Stamp  the bike from Riding Pretty by Impression Obsession on card stock
Die cut the following:   one Allison's Ribbon by Cheery Lynn Designs, Happy Birthday sentiment from Happy Birthday Background by Poppy Stamps, and the stamped bike using the Bicycle Die set by Impression Obsession.  Layer the ribbon trim on a piece of designer paper, glue  the happy birthday sentiment on the card front, color the bike with a few Tim Holtz markers and then pop it up on the card with the small Joy Foam Pads.

Be sure to check out Classy Cards 'n Such for all these and many more supplies.  Thank you for looking at my card, have a happy stamping day!

I'll leave you with a picture of me putting together the bike that I will put with the Happy Birthday card. I must say the card was a lot easier than the bike!

Classy Cards 'n Such Scenic Challenge

Good Morning, Joy here today showing you a card for the Classy Cards 'n Such Challenge #33  , which is to make a card with a Scenic View with either stamps or die cuts.  I used a Stamp from Our Daily Bread called Path of Life.  I inked up the image with Versamark, sprinkled on some Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Black Embossing Powder and embossed.  I use this brand because it is so fine that even the smallest details will pop out when heated up.  I used a Tim Holtz Water Brush  and Tim Holtz Distress Inks to color the scene.  I pressed each color, one at a time, onto the non-stick small kraft sheet that came in my Susan's Garden Tool Kit.  I love this little sheet - it's the perfect size, easy to clean up and my desk is less crowded than if I pulled out my big sheet.

The next step was to spritz a little Silk Glimmer Mist on top of the ink pressed onto the mat. I used this instead of water because it does not add much color to the inks, but sure gives a beautiful sparkle and glimmer.


After painting, I cut the scene out with the Spellbinders Matting Basics A.  These create perfect layers and make for quick matting.  I stamped the little sentiment "Dear Friend" from Hugs & Kisses by JustRite Stamps on to one of the little labels from the Teramo Die Set from Memory Box.  A little piece of ribbon was added and attached onto a card base.  Below you will find a summary of supplies used from Classy Cards 'n Such.

Stamps:
Path of Life by Daily Bread
Hugs & Kisses by JustRite

Dies:
Matting Basics A by Spellbinders
Teramo Die Set by Memory Box

Other:
Black Embossing Powder by Sparkle 'n Sprinkle
Water Brush by Tim Holtz
Distress Ink Pads by Tim Holtz
Susan's Garden Tool Kit - small kraft sheet
Silk Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels

Classy Cards 'n Such Lilac Festival

Hi, it's Joy today here and time for another wonderful challenge from Classy Cards 'n Such.  This week it is called Lilac Festival.  The challenge is to use lilac, lavender, purple or purple colors with neutrals of cream and white.  Here is my card....

I had the opportunity to attend a workshop in California called The Great Yosemite Stamp Escape.  This is an event that has been held every year for the last 13 years.  Great paper artists lead the workshops.  This year Pam Sparks one of the designers and instructors for Memory Box dies taught a few classes and inspired this card.  I used the Memory Box dies called  Beach Sprig,  Rhone Butterfly Wings, Pavilia Bloom Background with the Pavilia Bloom Outline and Massa Leaf Frame.  I lightly stenciled a chevron background with a Tim Holtz (Evergreen bough) Seasonal Ink -which are on sale at Classy Cards 'n Such.  I made a spritz of a Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Stain in a Spritz Bottle and spritzed it on top of the chevron background.  I added Baby White Pearls to the ends of the Beach Sprig and to the sequin centers.  I did not add a sentiment on the outside - that way this will go in the any occasion stack of cards.

Thanks for looking at my card - be sure to check out all the Memory Box Dies at Classy Cards 'n Such. Just looking will inspire you!  Have a happy stamping day!

Bird Watching with Repeat Impressions

Today Wendy has all of us Bird Watching -- so we all got our bird stamps out -- and I'm sure it was just as hard for everyone else to make a decision on which stamp to use as it was for me.  Wendy has created so many good bird stamps.  I chose Bird Song because it reminds me so much of spring and I went with a "Tim Holtz" distress look. The sentiment Happy Birthday is from the Quartet Compliments Series - one of my favorites because of the script.  Here is my card:
It would be great if you would join us in the Bird Watching challenge.  Simple, simple, simple, just go to Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built,http://www.repeatimpressions.com/index.html see the guidelines, make a card and post it on her blog.  Who knows?

These flowers were made from the dies Build A Flower 2 and Build a Flower 1 for the leaves.  These dies were cut out of old pattern tissue paper.  The flower parts were colored using a Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Tim Holtz Seasonal Distress Inks.   I also used a frame die from Honey Blossom Frame. From this die I cut the flower vine off and used it to add some dimension.  I sprayed the two vines with a little Silk Glimmer Mist to lighten and give a little sparkle to the vines.  The Happy Mothers Day Sentiment is by Hugs and Kisses Sentiments by JustRite was stamped onto one of the tags in the paper set called The Lake House by Kaiser Kraft.  I popped this up with a few Small Joy Foam Pads.   The background flower vine paper is also from The Lake House.

Build A Flower 2
