Gather supplies… A2 card (4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″), coordinating pattern paper: 1 design cut to 3″ x 5 1/2″, and  1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, coordinating piece cut to 1 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, spare white and coordinating cardstock for image of your choice to use with two die cuts of choice, one slightly larger to frame the other.

Score  1 1/4″ from the edge of your card and fold back from the edge as shown above.

Glue matching pattern paper on the right and left sides as shown, coordinating paper in the center. Color and attach design of your choice.  I used Repeat Impressions’ 514-I Prize Pumpkin colored with Copic markers.

Good morning, everyone! Do you need some stamping inspiration? If so, I think we might be able to help you out with that. Today here at “The House” it’s time to introduce a new Inspiration Palette Challenge. This challenge is a fun cross between our previous Photo Inspiration Challenges and our Color Challenges. Below I have posted a photograph with a corresponding color palette so that you can choose to find your inspiration in whichever suits you best… or both!

Hi everyone, Deonna here with my Project of the Week and I’m going to show you how to shadow ink. I kinda think of it as reverse coloring.

potw101617-db25

Supplies:
Vellum – Cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″- Folded in half for a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card
White Cardstock – Cut the same as the vellum above
Stamps by Repeat Impressions – 908-K Cornucopia, 514-I Prize Pumpkin, 3309-K Scarecrow & Friend and 4313-K Sunflower
Staz-on ink in black
Sponge dauber – mine is Tim Holtz
Ink pads – Distress ink in Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs, Cloudy Sky, Salty Ocean

1. Take your vellum and stamp your images all over the desired area. Stamp the cornucopia and then stamp a mask and cut it out. Mask cornucopia and then stamp pumpkin along with a mask and cut it out, repeat with scarecrow and sunflowers.

2. Photocopy the vellum image above onto a piece of printer paper with masking paper on top. Fussy cut the image out with scissors.

3. After cutting out the image, place behind the vellum image aligned directly under the vellum image. Place the mask onto the white cardstock base. It should just stick to the cardstock underneath.

4. Taking your sponge dauber and Ranger ink, sponge the ink around the mask on the white cardstock. I used blue for the sky and green for the bottom. Remove the mask on the white cardstock.

5. Cut down your vellum to the card size and attach the vellum image directly over the cardstock using double-sided tape or vellum tape at the top and bottom to hold the vellum to the card.

6. Add a sentiment to the vellum using Staz-on ink, if desired and enjoy. You are now finished.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope you’ve had a memorable week since I last checked in with you. Despite the unusually warm October weather we’ve been having here lately, we have finally had a few more fall like days. So lucky me… I was able to get out last weekend for a little family time and my favorite autumn tradition… apple picking! Yay!! And of course I had to overindulge and treat myself to the fabulous apple cider donuts with maple glaze made fresh at the orchard bakery. Yum!! I’m not even going to tell you how many donuts I ate… Yikes!! Good thing I only get there once a year.  😀

Today here at “The House” it’s time to kick off a fun Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge. I have created the Tic-Tac-Toe style board below using various stamping themes, elements, and embellishments. Then, similar to the game, you will create something based on picking any row of 3… either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Fun, right?! And with so many great variables there’s really no reason why you can’t play along!

Check out all this wonderfully fun inspiration the RI Rock Stars have created for you… such a great variety!

And just a friendly reminder… as I explained last week, this month the deadline for submissions for ALL our challenges will be October 31st. So for example… with today’s Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge you’ll have the rest of the month to create and upload your card. Then when we introduce our next new challenge next week you’ll have two weeks to submit for that one, and then one week for the last challenge of the month. So with a little less of a time crunch we hope you’ll find that you have more opportunity to play along with more of our challenges.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. We hope you’ve found lots to inspire you and look forward to seeing your challenge creation linked here soon. And please be sure to drop by again on Monday when Rock Star, Deonna Bemish will be hosting and sharing her Project of the Week with us.
