Sketch Time at Repeat Impressions

Good morning!  I love, love, love sketches!  They give me a starting point and Wendy does a beautiful job of the sketches she challenges us with.  Here is this week's.
And here is my card
The stamp is called Celebrate Spring. With a little rubber stamp surgery, I separated the daffodils from the sentiment and then used them as another stamp!  - Two for one -- SCORE!

So let's get started on this challenge.  Make a project -- and remember - it can be a 3D project, a scrapbook page or card - let your imagination run wild!!  Just use the photo as inspiration.  We look forward to seeing what you will do with the challenge.    You don't have to use Repeat Impression stamps but if you do, your name will be entered twice (2x) for a random drawing for a really nice gift certificate from Repeat Impressions.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.   

Here is the list of Rock Star Designers who have made something to inspire you.  Good luck - and I'm looking forward to see your projects.

Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions

Good morning!  It's my turn to do a Project of the Week for  Repeat Impressions and I just recently saw the bleach technique and found it easy and fun.  Repeat Impressions has quite a few really great stamps that work well with this technique.

Supplies for this technique are:

Bleach - any kind
solid or silhouette stamps
dye ink - any brand name - I've used Gina K Designs, Hero Arts and Momento
applicators or small brushes
The first step is to stamp images of your choice on card stock to use as a background.  I used a MISTI so that my images got full and complete coverage.
Then I poured a small amount of bleach into a small container and dipped my applicator into the bleach and quickly painted or sketched onto the stamped image.
The application of bleach changes the color of the dye ink.  Be careful not to splash or drip where you don't want it -- it might mess up your stamping.  Here are two of the finished cards:

The solid images I used are Maple Leaf Silhouette and Large Balloon Silhouette.  The sentiments are Happy Birthday from the Quartet Compliments and Happy Birthday from....

Hope you give this technique a try - it's easy and lots of fun.

Color Challenge for Repeat Impressions

Aren't color challenges fun?  This week Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions gave us these colors to challenge us.
I made a couple of projects. The first one was sort of a mistake (wrong colors), but it was fun and will briefly detail.

This was a treat sack.  I used some washy tape and the stamps called Shamrock Silhouette and St. Patricks sentiment.  The shamrock was layered on top of one of the die from the Fancy Flip Die Set.  Ok, now on to the REAL card for the challenge.

On this card - which meets the colors in the challenge, I used one of the large Happy Cling Set with some scrap paper and a little piece of cork and a few sequins (a new addiction).

What would you do with this color challenge.  Remember - it can be a 3D project, a scrapbook page or card - let your imagination run wild!!  We would like to see what you would do with the challenge.    You don't have to use Repeat Impression stamps but if you do, your name will be entered twice (2x) for a random drawing for a really nice gift certificate from Repeat Impressions.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.

Quieting our Fears

Today is a bittersweet day for me.  This will be my last post for Classy Cards 'n Such.  Beverly, the owner is retiring and God has some new adventures in store for her.  I have so enjoyed serving as a Design Team member.  She has been so very gracious (especially when I was running late on my projects!) and generous with the Design Team.

Here is my card for today.
I used some of my favorite paper (which I have hoarded) from Heartfelt Creations but let go of for this special occasion. The Stamp is from Sweet 'n Sassy's God Is Stamp Collection -- also my favorite.  The centers of the blossoms have Art Institute Adhesive and Pumice Stone Distress Glitter.  The birdie has Wink of Stella on his wings.

Be sure to check out the Classy Cards 'n Such on line store.  There are some FANTASTIC bargins on supplies, stamps, and dies from many great companies.

Thank for looking at my card.  Blessings to you Beverly and all you have done to make our hobby fun and enjoyable.

What If Wednesday

Good Morning!  Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions has challenged us with a sketch.  Here it is:
So the card I made has an action wobbler on it.  The little chicken wobbles when you touch it.
I used the Stitching Flip Die Set for the rectangle and the square.  The little chick is called Just Hatched.  I just think he is adorable.  I outlined the stitched square with a white pen so that the stitches would show up.

Now it's your turn.  We would like to see what you would do with the challenge.    You don't have to use Repeat Impression stamps but if you do, your name will be entered twice (2x) for a random drawing for a really nice gift certificate from Repeat Impressions.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.
