Happy Hump Day, crafty friends! I hope you are all having a great week so far. Are you all ready for Thanksgiving? I am working this morning, baking my infamous pumpkin whoopie pies this afternoon, and then off this evening for a family birthday dinner celebration. Hard to believe my sister’s oldest is 21 today. And my sweet kitty, Oliver was 14 yesterday. Where did the time go?!

But it’s challenge day here again at The House and I’ve got a new sketch to share with you. So if you are planning to get inky sometime this week, then we’ve got just the thing to help get you started. Check out my sketch and all the fabulousĀ inspiration cards created by the RI Rock Stars… then play along for your chance to win a Repeat Impressions‘ gift certificate!

This week it is my turn to do the Project of the Week over at The House That Stamps Built and I chose a very popular fold for my project. When I saw these images over at Repeat Impressions the cute penguins Penguin Trio 8806-N, I thought they looked like they were singing – so I used the sentiment Let Heaven 413-H.

SUPPLIES

potw112116-sh1

Repeat Impressions’ stamps Let Heaven 413-H and Penguin Trio 8806-N
Memento Black Ink, copic markers, White card stock, Christmas designer paper, punch/note – scissors, glue, and a photo copied song Joy to the World.

potw112116-sh2

This card is really about the scoring and folding of the cardstock – start with an 8 1/2 by 11 card stock and cut length wise on the 4 1/4″ mark. Score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″,

Then cut another piece of your base card stock 1 1/2″ by 11″. Score at 5 1/2″ and 8 1/4″.

Designer paper is cut – for the band 3 strips 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ and (2) 2 1/2″ x 1/4″
Designer paper is cut – for the base card (2) 2 1/2″ x 4″ and (1) 5 1/4″ x 4″

potw112116-sh3

Fold your score line with mountain fold then valley fold.

potw112116-sh4

Color your focal image – which I colored with copic markers and then fussy cut these cuties. I stamped and used an oval spellbinder for my sentiment.

potw112116-sh5

Apply adhesive or glue of your choice on the 1 1/2 inch band on the backside on the left for 2 3/4″ inch and on the right again 2 3/4″ inch. Turn band over and apply about 1 inch above bottom of card – apply to the left front – and then to the far right front – the piece in the middle is not glued.

potw112116-sh6

I added some embellishments and took the photo a little from the top looking down so you can see the box shape in the middle. This fold is all the in thing right now and REPEAT IMPRESSIONS has so many stamps that will work for this style – lets see what you come up with using this fold.

Good morning, crafty friends! I hope you are all having a good week so far. Today it’s time to introduce another WHAT IF? Wednesday challenge here at “The House”. This week we have a fun Photo Inspiration Challenge for you. We hope you will join us in celebrating Fall along with this cheerful fellow!

n1616

So “what if” we showed you this photo… What does it inspire you to create? What do you see?… Is your focus on the subject matter? The colors? The shapes? A feeling the photo brings out in you? A little of each maybe?

Check out all these great interpretations created by our design team Rock Stars.
