And now for a little eye candy and inspiration… Check out this beautiful card made by Rock Star, Lynette Neus.
This style is called a step card and something I’ve never tried before. I’m thinking I might try making one of these today.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Woohoo! It was one of the toughest things I’ve had to do in a long time, but I’ve finally chosen Repeat Impressions’ new Design Team!! I am so excited I’m really looking forward to seeing all the wonderful things they’ll be creating and sharing with us.
In the coming weeks you can look forward to lots of stamping inspiration here. To get things rolling we’ll be featuring cards with our “Stamp of the Week” and some extra special savings just for our blog readers. We’ll also be hosting some fun card challenges and hope you will join in… you do like blog candy don’t you?!
I would also like to take just a moment to thank all of those who applied for the team. I must say there is a lot of talent out there. It was really difficult to narrow it down to just ten.
OK, enough with the chit chat… I know why you’re really reading this post So without further ado, let me introduce you to Repeat’s Rock Stars! They are:
Now be sure to follow the links to their blogs and show these talented ladies some love!
There will be no Easter eggs to hunt for here at The House That Stamps Built this weekend. The only eggs in my immediate future will be served up scrambled and topped with a little of my favorite habanero lime salsa!
Nope, instead I’ll be hunting for something far more exciting than dyed eggs… It’s time to revisit my email inbox and search through our Design Team Call submissions. And since I’ve seen quite a lot of creativity rolling in lately, I’m thinking it’s got to be lots easier to hide or hunt for eggs than trying to choose new DT members. I think I’d rather trade jobs with the Easter Bunny!
The adorable Easter card shown here was created for us by Sandy Hulsart, one of our past DT members. Sandy used our stamps #1310-G Just Hatched, #1305-G Eggs-tra Special and #4507-J Easter Balloons. You can see more of the wonderful cards Sandy has created for us by visiting her Repeat Impressions gallery page and also by checking out her blog.
Hope you’re having a fabulous holiday weekend and thanks for stopping by!
On my journey from Maine to Philadelphia today I got to thinking about all the wonderful people I’ve come to know since getting into the stamping business. And thanks to the magic of the internet the world is my oyster!
For example, when I put together Repeat’s first Design Team I had the pleasure of getting to know a group of talented women most of whom I have never met. It was stamping that brought us together of course, but with time I found there were other added benefits too. Like friendship! The discovery of common bonds… like a passion for our “fur kids” or an appreciation for a really good book or a willing competitor for my online Scrabble addiction. I think you all know who you are
My now friend and Repeat Design Team alum, Caroline Ouzts Hay, is one of these people. Caroline created the fantastic little mask shown here. I think it is such a unique use of our quilt square stamp. That’s one of the things I like most about this business. I take great pleasure in designing a stamp and then seeing all the wonderful things people create with them. Often times I am pleasantly surprised… like with this mask Please do visit Caroline’s blog, Glitter Tart Designs, to see what other great things she has created!
In addition to online relationships, it has been my good fortune to meet thousands of you on my travels across the country doing stamp shows. Many a new friendship has been forged at a Friday night Make It Take It Project Party or chatting over my demo table at a convention. Besides being wildly creative, stampers as a whole are a great, fun-loving bunch. I always look forward to returning to a city year after year to do a show and seeing so many familiar, friendly faces.
So if you live in the Philly area and will be coming to the StampScrapArtTour show this weekend please do stop by and say hello. After all, you can never have too many stamping friends!
Hope to meet you soon…
P.S. Just a reminder… it’s not too late to apply for our new Design Team. Please visit the Design Team Call page on our website for details soon. Call ends March 31st, 2010.
