Happy Birthday

A few fun challenges:
 

Trying to get a bit ahead on the group birthday cards for work.  I made the February
cards yesterday and the March cards today.  I try to individualize by color,
what they like (flowers, sailing, nautical...)  this month I did their colors
and made similar cards.  I used a new happy birthday die I got on clearance at
Michael's by Spellbinders and it
cut like butter, it also came with a "with love" which
will be useful for Valentines day.

The House That Stamps Built Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge


Time for a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge!  I like these because they are challenging, I have to think a bit more on these, and they tend to be different than my usual style.

I went with the diagonal, bottom left on up, Off the Edge, Blue and Silver:
 

I used Repeat Impressions: 4025-F, Deepest Sympathy, and Kennsington Branch by Memory Box, along with a new banner die by Tutti Designs.  A few pearls and I hope this will bring comfort.

Can you believe it is January 1 already?  Time is really flying by.  I want to wish all of you a very Happy and blessed New Year. 
 
It's time for another challenge at  and another term at House of Cards, such a talented and fun design team!
 
My card started with the fun, bright colors above using Distress  Oxide Inks, but when I added a layer of Gesso, glitter, and another layer of Gesso over my distressed background it softened up. I still like the end result.  It was fun going with the colors, and mixed media.

Merry Christmas


Time for a photo inspiration at The House That Stamps Built.



No automatic alt text available.


My take focused on the Christmas tree.  I created a night sky with Distress Oxide inks and splattered some thinned white paint on it to look like snow, then dry embossed a white layer with a snow embossing folder and die cut a circle for the sky.  I then stamped Repeat Impressions 2719-K, Lg Pine Tree in green and then with Versa Mark and embossed it with clear embossing powder and added it to my card.  I then added Repeat Impressions 2202-G, May the miracle...  which is my Christmas wish to all my dear followers this year.  Thank you for your support, visits and comments this year! 



We always enjoy seeing your creations and you get an extra chance to win if you use a Repeat Impressions stamp.  See my side bar for a code for a 10% discount. Details at The House That Stamps Built.
