Tic Tac Toe at The House that Stamps Built

Hi everyone - Happy Wednesday!

I'm back with a new Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for Repeat Impressions.
Here is the inspiration that Wendy gave us to work with:

  
I used the middle row: Off the Edge, Pastel Colors, and Get Well

Today, I used these Repeat Impressions Stamps:
10307-H Patti's Flower Outline
8603-E Get Well Soon

So...I have to tell on myself!
I had my card totally finished, and when I began to type up the blog post, I inserted the Tic Tac Toe grid and said OOPS!  I had worked from memory instead of re-checking the grid, and had used bright colors instead of pastel colors!  So......this one's a total 'do-over'!!!  Silly me...sheesh!

Here's what I made, using the above RI products:


I'm sure that at least one of you is in the process of laughing at with me, because you've done the same silly type of thing, right???

Now it’s your turn! Create a card using the Tic-Tac-Toe board above, and link it up at The House that Stamps Built. Remember, your creation does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would love to see them! Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!

Now, it's time to see what my fellow Rock Stars have created!

done by hand!  No cutting machine?  No worries!!!  The Cutting Cafe has a LOT of ideas
and inspiration for your Christmas holidays!

Here are my Stocking Boxes:



Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe today for loads of additional inspiration from the Design Team.  You'll see lots of ideas for your own Christmas projects,

Project of the Week - The House that Stamps Built

Good morning!

I'm the Monday morning hostess at The House that Stamps Built. It's my turn to share a 'Project of the Week' with all of you.  Today, I chose 'Inking with Finger Daubers' for my tutorial.

For this tutorial, I'm using these Repeat Impressions stamps:


First, gather your supplies.  You will need a few inks, a few finger daubers, and a fun stamp.



Using a finger dauber, ink up the first cat, being sure not to ink up any of the other parts of the stamp.

Stamp the first image, and repeat the process on the second cat, using a different ink and dauber.


Here is what it looks like.  As you can see, I got a bit of ink on the 'framework' of the stamp.
No worries!

Repeat the process using a third dauber and ink color.


At this point, the cats were 'masked' using some scraps of post it notes.  Once all
of the masks were in place, I daubed black ink on the frame.


Before stamping, careful and quickly remove the scaps of post it notes.
You can see in the image below, that only the frame has ink on it.


Here's what it looks like with all Post-It's removed.


Stamp the image.


Here is your finished image - pretty cool, right?


Now, all you have to do is finish your card!  Voila!


Last, here is a close-up of the stamped image....

We hope that you will give this a try! Come back and let us know if you do - we'd love to see your finished projects!!!
