The House That Stamps Built: Inspiration Palette

Inspiration Photo time at The House That Stamps Built, is this not a beautiful photo and colors?   
 
Image may contain: flower
 
 
 I was inspired by both the photo and colors:
 


I used a floral die cut and colored it with Distress Oxide Inks,
spritzed with water and shimmer spray.  Next I cut stamped and cut out
on my Scan N Cut: 10312-F, Striped  Flower Outline, 10305-F, Striped Flower
Solid, 10309-C, Leaf Outline Small and 10311-C,
Leaf Solid Small all available at Repeat Impressions (see coupon code
on my sidebar).  A few embellishments and I was done. 
Close up below to show the shimmer:

The House That Stamps Built: Tic-Tac-Toe


No automatic alt text available.


Tic-Tac-Toe time at The House That Stamps Built,  I went with the middle row across:  Patriotic- Embossing: Dry (stars on the blue, and heat)- and Die cut.   You are probably wondering why my patriotic card says Happy Birthday,  my dads birthday is on the 4th of July, so I made this card in advance for his birthday.  His birthday is a big celebration is the USA!

 
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!

Happy Thoughts



Another card I made with my new Altenew set "Beautiful Day"  that I got for Mothers
Day.  This one was sent to my dear friend Shirley, aka Glittered Paws, a few weeks
ago after her shoulder surgery.  I went and visited last week and she was
able to do a bit of crafting, we made the following cards:

Okay, you are asking, where are the mountains, lake, etc.  Well a part of vacation to me is relaxing with a glass of wine  at the end of the day and "Finding beauty in the little things" during the day.  This is why I went with a clean and simple stamping of

Congrats Elizabeth

 
 
I wanted to join in celebrating Mrs. A's 100th Butterfly Challenge, how exciting
is this.  I spun the wheel and went with Harvest Gold, Heat
  embossing and of course a butterfly.
 
My sister-in-law took an early retirement and went back to school and just
graduated with an art degree.  This card is for her.  I used Altenew's
Beautiful Day set,  a Crafters Companion die for the leaves, a butterfly
punch in my stash, and an embossing folder by the Paper Studio.
 
The flowers are stamped in a combination of Distress Oxides and Distress Inks
as it is a 4 step stamp and I did not have enough colors in one type, I like the
resulting color.  The cardstock I used for the butterfly was colored
with Distress Oxide inks.
