The House That Stamps Built: Inspiration Photo

 Time for some photo inspiration at The House: 



No automatic alt text available.




I went with the fun photo colors, and the photo, I felt the falling leaves
were a good take on the falling stones.  I used a stencil and  Distress
Inks making sure to overlap the colors when I switched for interest.  
I used Repeat Impressions  4025-F, Deepest Sympathy, a few brads,
and epoxy shapes for accents.


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! Check out
my sidebar for a discount code.

Happy Birthday


I got this darling stamp and die set with a magazine at Barnes and
Noble, such a fun set!  I had to use it right away to make my
sister-in-laws birthday card.  It came with Stamps, a stencil and
die cuts, and the magazine for $14.95, can't beat that.

Repeat Impressions - Pick of the Week

Hi, Donna here with my POW-Pick of the Week for Repeat Impression.  I've been  
wanting to try the hot new technique I've seen video after video on
all over you tube, so here is a tutorial on my first attempt of
string art.
 
First gather your minimal supplies that should be in your craft room
already, reinker, string, about 9-12", a container to ink your string
in, 2 pieces of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" cardstock, saying of your choice.  Rubber
gloves as I learned by experience:


Ink up your string leaving about 2-3" on each end uninked, do not be fooled into
thinking this will keep you uninked:


Lay your string in a circular design with one end at the top of your cardstock,
see positioning in the next picture:


Place the other piece of cardstock on top, (note
positioning of the string in  this photo)  press the top
 sheet of cardstock down and quickly pull the bottom
 string out:


You will get two mirror image designs looking similar or not to this, depending
on your curls:


Embellish as desired, some people add leaves to make the image look more
 


Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will give it a try.
