The House That Stamps Built; Designer Choice Challenge

It’s the second Wednesday of the month which means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built! Today, it is Heather’s turn to host our challenge and she has chosen “Happy Birthday Cards”.

As with our other challenges, we are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store for our random winner. Don’t forget, if you use a RI stamp, you get an extra entry!

For my “Happy Birthday” card I stamped the Repeat Impressions “Mini Cupcake” and colored it with Tombow Markers. I then made a new sentiment using the “Holy Crap” plate 10600″.  The sentiment was framed using a black micron and the papers are My Favorite Things.

I look forward to your entries for the “Happy Birthday Card” challenge this week over at The House that Stamps Built.  Happy Wednesday!

Technique Junkies Fall Birches

Hey Junkies!

It’s The Crafty Nurse here with a bit of Fall inspiration featuring my favorite stamp from the September Technique Junkies release the “Birches #S686”.  What I love about this stamp is it can be used as both a focal image and a fabulous background. I’m also entering this in the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge for a “Rustic” project.

I began by stamping the “Birches #S686” stamp with Archival Jet Black Ink.  I used the Faux Paint Swatches technique from April/May 2013 newsletter with Hero Arts Butter Bar, Pumpkin Spice, Just Rust, Cup O’ Joe, and Charcoal.  I used a Simon Says Stamp “Grant Maple Die” to cut a window and embossed with a Darice Leaf folder for the center which I inked for added contrast.  The sentiment is a My Favorite Things “Thanks” die that I stacked and embossed for high contrast.

I just love this time of year and this September release has given us some fabulous tools to celebrate in style.

Happy Inking!!
