The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

 It's week four at The House That Stamps Built, everyone's favorite:  Anything Goes:

 


 I went with a CAS card but oh is it not striking.  I like the technique of
ink blending inside a shaped stencil (bought or made at home) and then 
stamping your image over it. I stamped this  Repeat Impressions Great Blue Heron 
with black Versa Fine Clair ink and then embossed with clear ink.

 I went diagonally with Shimmer/Sparkle, Slimline card and Blueberries:

 
This was n new stamps I got from Wendy:  Blueberry Strand and  a
sentiment from my stash:  Thinking Vertical.
 

I colored with Copics and then added clear Wink of Stella to the blueberries, Star Dust
 Stickles to just a few of the blueberries to look like dew and Glossy Accents to
 all the blueberries.  Below is a close up:

The House That Stamps Built: Designer Choice Challenge

 It's the first week of September so it's time for a Designer Choice Challenge at 
The House That Stamps Built and it's my week to choose the challenge. 
 I choose use a recycled item on  your card/project.  

I choose to recycle part of a Kleenex box, they always have the 
cutest patterns and color combo's on them.   I paired it with  sentiments
from Repeat Impressions Hello Series. I did some ink distressing and die 
cutting with stitched dies and added a few pearls from my stash.
 
Just a hint, it is easier if your recycled item is empty before you
decide to create with it.  I'm still waiting for my husband to 
notice the back of the Kleenex box in our bathroom.

 
Join our weekly challenge, you might just 
be the lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the
 $25 Repeat Impression's  gift certificate. you don't have to use
Repeat Impression stamps but an extra chance if you do.

Hello


 Hello!    Hope you are having a good day and staying safe.  I am just getting 
my crafty mojo back.  I have not been doing much card making other than my
Design Team, thank goodness for that!

I saw Mrs. A's Butterfly challenge with the curtain fold option and have
neglected her challenge so wanted to play along as I have only
made 1 curtain fold in the past.  I had forgotten how easy it was. I had
a snippet of patterned paper left so glued a butterfly to cardstock
ad used it on my card. I'm not sure of the manufacturer of
the Hello die.
