DCC Challenge at 'The House'...

Hello!

I hope you are enjoying your week - Happy Wednesday!

It’s challenge day at The House that Stamps Built, and we have a great Designer’s Choice Challenge for you. RI Rock StarHeather, is hosting and has a wonderful theme challenge for us. Please join in our challenge, and create something using the theme "Use Some Hearts".

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



The image and sentiment were stamped on a focal panel with versamark ink, and heat
embossed with white embossing powder. Some distress ink was sponged onto the focal
panel. The excess ink was wiped off with a paper towel, the focal panel was matted and adhered to the blue card base. Voila...easy peasy!!!

And now it’s your turn!
We hope you will create a card that has a focus on the DCC theme, 'Use Some Hearts', 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 will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!

Now, it's time to see what my DT friends have created!

Black, White and Red Challenge at 'The House'!!!

Good morning!

I'm back with a new challenge for Repeat Impressions
Our challenge this week is a color challenge - look at the classic colors Wendy
gave us to work with:


And, here's what I made using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:




This heart stamp actually has a heart, with the word LOVE below it. I snipped off the word,
making two separate stamps, and used only the heart for this card. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig,
I repeatedly stamped the heart, first in one direction, then turning the card, I stampe
repeatedly in the other direction. The checked border is a teensy width Washi Tape.
The beautiful 'Travel Light' sentiment pretty much sums up life, and finished up this card.
I matted the focal panel on black, then adhered that to a white card base.

Now it’s your turn! Create a card using the colors 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!

Repeat Impressions Project of the Week - Can It!!!

Hi there!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and we always need a last minute inexpensive, but thoughtful gift for friends, neighbors, Sunday School members, etc.

My Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions is quick, easy, and so much fun
for the recipient!  For some of you paper crafters that have been around a
long time, this is not a new idea. For some of you that are newer
to this creative corner of our world, you'll enjoy this!!!

Today, I'll be using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:

Let's get started - we are making a Can of Kisses...



Start with a can of fruit, veggies, etc., that has a pop top like the one pictured above.

Using a can opener designed to remove lids safely, with smooth edges, remove
the BOTTOM of your can.



Take the label off, and measure it to see what size paper you'll need to replace it.
For this can, I used a 4 1/8" x 10" piece of plain pink copy paper.


Using the Tumbling Hearts, I stamped randomly all over my pink paper with red ink.


I then took a glitter pen, and glittered the whole sheet.
I stamped the sentiment, mounted and adhered it to the panel, and
added some glitter tape to each end for further sparkle.

The next step is to add some adhesive (wet or dry) to the back side of the panel.

Decide which will be your 'outside' edge, and add a bit of adhesive to that end.

Begin rolling your panel around your can, being sure that you adhere your design
with the pattern facing the TOP of the can, not the bottom. (don't ask me how
I discovered this :)

Fill can with items of choice - candy, money, jewelry, scarf, rubber stamps from 

Add a bit of glue around the outer edge of your lid, and place it back on can.
Allow to dry for handling.

Decorate the top of your can as frilly... 

...or as simple as you like!
I kept this project uber-simple design-wise.

Give it a try!  If you do, stop by and let us know, so we can come see your beautiful creation!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs,
Patti J.
