Vacation

If you have been wondering why I have not been commenting I have been vacationing out in California for almost 2 weeks.  We went to Yosemite, Sequoia National Park, and then Palm Springs.  Just a few pictures to share.  Looking forward to catching up on all your creativity in the next few days!

want to play with some of them.  I went with inking up

I added a few die cuts and pearl gems and here is what I cam up with:

The House That Stamps Built:Tic-Tac-Toe

 
No automatic alt text available.
 
Time for  a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at The House That Stamps Built this week. I
find this challenging as I go outside my comfort zone but I am always happy
with the results.  I used the challenge this month to make my sons
birthday card:
 

 I started with my image and used Distress Oxide inks for the background
 (with water splatters)  and Copic markers for the image.  I added the Washi
tape to complete the middle row: Birthday-Stitching--Washi Tape and was
happy with the look the Washi tape added!
 
 
I hope you will join in the challenge.  Remember, your creation doesn’t have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if it is, you will get an additional entry in the drawing for a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate this month!

House of Cards

 
 
May 2018
Shaped card and/or Colors

  
Time for another fun monthly challenge at House of Cards, you can go with a
shaped card or the colors. I enjoy shaped cards so went with a Z-fold card:
 
 


My husband will be officially retired the day this post goes live so I made a Z-fold card so I
could incorporate all the fun things that we hope to enjoy more of in his retirement. You will
notice the skier is not a stamped image, I took a picture of him and shrunk it and printed it on
cardstock.  I think he will be happy with this card.
 
I hope you will join in this fun challenge.  Details on the House of Cards blog.
