Another fun challenge from Repeat Impressions. The Designer's Choice Challenge this time is from Joy and is to make a Fall-themed or Halloween card. It's super-easy, too - just make your card or project, upload to your blog or an on-line gallery, and link your photo up to the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built. You'll find everything thing you need to know there, as well as pictures of the Rock Stars' creations. One random winner for the month will win their choice of a full sheet of unmounted rubber! You can also follow these links to the Rock Stars' blogs:
For my card, I went with a Fall theme. I used the Apple Basket stamp, found on this page. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored using my new Bic markers. (More about them later.) The sentiment is also from Repeat Impressions and I stamped it with Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin' Up! My matting is Chocolate Chip. I cut the squares with Nestabilities - a plain square and a Lacey Square. The patterned paper is quite old and I believe it's from Fiskars. The card base, image panel and sentiment are all ivory.
We'd love to have you join us in this challenge. You also have another week to participate in the WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch challenge. Details for that are in this post.
Thanks to a "tip" from a member of my stamping group, I watched a video on Gina K about the Bic markers. I figured I had to check them out, and ended up getting a 36-pack from Staples for $15. They are alcohol-based, like Copics. I figured I can use them, but I can also let my grandchildren use them, once they start crafting with me:)
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
