Happy Wednesday!

It's the first inspiration challenge for the month, the year, and the decade for Repeat Impressions Stamps!  It’s challenge day at the Repeat Impressions blog, The House that Stamps Built, and we have a new Inspiration Palette Challenge for you. Here is the Inspiration Palette that Wendy gave us this week:

I was drawn in immediately by these colors and the pattern that the rosettes made. It was hard for me to not look at this photo and try to reproduce exactly what I see (well, in my simple mind's way, anyway!).

Here's what I made using this Repeat Impressions Stamp:



Hope you like it!

Now it’s your turn!
We hope you will create a card that has a focus on today’s challenge, and enter it in our challenge 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!
One lucky person this month will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!

Tic-Tac-Toe at The House that Stamps Built

Hi everyone - Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a new Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for Repeat Impressions.
Here is the inspiration board that Wendy gave us to work with:

  
I chose to work with: Silver or Gold, Die Cut, and Stars. I know it's a little late for this card, but think ahead to next January!

Today, I used these Repeat Impressions Stamps:

5140 C Star Silhouette (sm)
5111 H Star Silhouette (lg)
3804 I Happy New Year
3811 Champagne Bottle
3803 Champagne Glass

Here's my creation:


Good golly, this one would NOT photograph nicely!  All of the elements were heat embossed with silver powder, and all matting is metallic silver. I've tried so many times that I almost feel like popping a cork myself!  Lol....no worries - no chance of that happening in this lifetime! 

Now it’s your turn! Create something 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!

Designer's Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built

Happy New Year, everyone!

This is my third post today - if you are looking for my 2 Crafty Critter Crazies post, or my Seasons Givings post, scroll up (or down?) to find it!!

Wow...a new year, a new decade!  And of course, a new challenge at 'The House'!

It's time for another Repeat Impressions Stamps challenge at The House that Stamps Built, and we have a new Designer’s Choice Challenge for you. Shirley is our hostess for the month, and has challenged us all to use our RI stamps to bring back a childhood memory! Please join us in our challenge, and create something using the theme: "Create a card using an image that brings back a childhood memory.".  

This was an easy one for me. We grew up a bit on the poorer side, so most of our fun was created by just being outside and doing 'things'. One of the things I loved most about childhood in Chicago was ice skating!

Here's what I made using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:


I did a bit of coloring with Copic markers, added some gel pen dots on hat and scarf, fussy cut the image, and adhered a die cut of metallic silver (ice rink, right?) at the base of the image.  For the card base, I found a fun border die, and stenciled a pattern in the background. Popped up the image and voila!

This was a fun challenge - thanks Shirley!!!

 And now it’s your turn!
We hope you will create a card that has a focus on today’s DCC theme, and enter it in our challenge 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!
One lucky person this month will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!

Image may contain: food

Happy New Year, dear friends!
Can you believe another year has flown by?

This is my 3rd post of the day - scroll up or down? to find my posts for The House that Stamps Built (Repeat Impressions Stamps blog), or 2 Crafty Critter Crazies...

I'm very excited to once again be part of the Seasons Giving Blog Hop, hosted by Latisha Yost. The hop started when Latisha was talking with a friend about all of the product that we have that goes unused....doubles or triples of something, ribbon you don't like, a kit you received that's not your style, a gently used product, etc. As designers, we all have something that is just sitting here unused, gently used, or maybe we just love our blog readers, and want to go out and buy something new to give away!

This hop is my opportunity to thank you so much for your support, especially this year. It's been a bit of a tough year for me again health-wise, and I appreciate those of you who are still dropping by. If you are a new subscriber, welcome! I love making new online friends!

PRIZES!!!!!
Each one of us on the hop will have some type of giveaway on our blogs. Be sure to hop, and enter to be eligible to win. There are lots of free crafty goodies to help start this year out right!

I will be giving two prizes packages!



To enter, just leave a comment on this post. PLEASE include an email address, so I can contact you. I will announce my winners on Monday, January 6th.

This quick card to wish you all well, features some Repeat Impressions stamps - I hope that 2020 is very good to you!


Thanks for stopping by!

Here is the list of the amazing stops on today's hop. If I am your first stop, curl up with a cup of something delicious, and get ready to hop! Thank you so much, Latisha, for taking the time to organize this hop each year!
