The House That Stamps Built: Inspiration Photo

Wendy has a lovely inspiration photo this week at


 
 No photo description available.

I went with softer colors and the circle design using a new die cut
my hubby gave me for Christmas, Spellbinders Wreath.  I colored a
piece of cardstock with Brusho's and then die cut it.  I added Repeat
Impressions:1144-D, Anniversary in the center and added ribbon
 and some embellishments.
 
Inside the card Repeat Impressions 419-J, Another year . . .

Twofer







Had some free time so I was motivated by Darnell's Twofer Heart challenge,
I started with a new set from Stampin Up  Heartfelt and used the
lacey heart.  The first card is CAS, bear and sentiment from Lawn Fawn.
 The second card was the fun messy one, I embossed the
hearts randomly in clear, embossed one in silver.  Then used Distress
Oxides and smoosed until I liked my background.  Happy
Anniversary is from Repeat Impressions, and heart die is
Momenta.

The House That Stamps Built: Designer Choice Challenge

Welcome to the first challenge of the year for The House That Stamps
Built!  It is a DCC-Designer Choice Challenge hosted by Shirley-
something that reminds you of your childhood.
 

I had quite a collection of stuffed animals and that Wendy's darling
teddy bears were my first thought.  Although I used pink and
added a bow I was not a frilly little girl. I liked playing
dolls with the girls but I also played with the boys
 since my brother is just a year older than me.
 
Wishing you much joy in 2020!
 
Supplies:
Repeat Impression Stamps:
Tim Holtz lace stencil
Sizziz Framelits
Copics
Ribbon from my stash
