Happy Birthday Wendy Blog Hop!


Good Morning!

Today, we are celebrating a very special lady!

Wendy Wyman, owner of Repeat Impressions Stamps, has a birthday today,
and we all want to wish her a wonderful day...

When Wendy was just 4 years old, she announced that she was going to be an artist when she grew up.  Many years, and many sketchbooks later, she had earned a BFA in Graphic Design.

The next 11 years found Wendy worked in advertising, freelancing, and running a printing company.

And then it happened...Wendy's mom became a stamping addict, and the rest was history!  It was Wendy's mom's encouragement that led her to turn her illustrations into fine art rubber stamps.

Wendy's husband Bill, was also looking for a career change, and jumped at the idea of learning a new skill.  And so....in 1996, Wendy and Bill established Repeat Impressions Stamps.  Each stamp is designed by Wendy, and manufactured by Bill in their home workshop!

We hope that you will join us today, as we hop together for Wendy!

A note to Wendy from all of us:

Wendy, you are the sweetest, and most generous person we know.
As a 'boss', rarely do we find ourselves working for someone that is more professional,
or more organized!  You are so understanding of our personal issues, and it's a joy to work with you and your products!

We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!
We each look up to you, we admire you, and we respect you.
May your day today be filled with love and laughter!

And remember....the more candles you have, the bigger the wish you are allowed!

This is the card that i made for Wendy's Birthday. I broke out the old Prismacolor pencils to color this image.




Please hop along to see what my fellow Rock Stars have to share for Wendy!

Deonna- You are here!!!!
Joy
Patti


Thanks for hopping with us!  If you have a minute, please go to the RI blog, The House that Stamps Built, and leave Wendy a bit of Birthday love!!!

Bible Cover Altering for a youtube challenge- Female Version

Hi Friends, I thought that i'd share a challenge that i found on Youtube.  The Ladies name is Sarah Roberson and she's challenging everyone to Buy (Dollar Tree works) and Alter 2 bible covers. One will be mailed to her and she will take it to a nursing home and give it to a resident. The other bible we are to hand out to a stranger. I thought that this idea was such a great one that i started altering my two bibles right away.  One i wanted to be masculine and one feminine.  This wasn't a requirement to make both a female and male version, but one that i wanted to do. I could have easily chosen to make two feminine, but masculine is always a challenge for me.

Psalm 148: 2-4- Bible art Journaling

I've created another bible art journaling page that
I'd like to share with you today. Remember to read your scriptures.  I read the entire Psalm before i started my art.

Psalm 148:2-4
Praise him all his angels!
Praise him all the Armies of Heaven!
Praise him, Sun and Moon!
Praise him all you twinkling Stars!
Praise him Skies above!
Praise him, vapors high above the clouds!


I Created this page and colored using my shimmery watercolors.  I drew this picture using a inspiration photo from Melonheadz LDS illustration. These are free and she also allows you to trace so check it out. I love to draw but really like to look at things while doing it so this was perfect for me. I also added my own Sun, Moon, clouds etc...

Bible Art Journal Page- Psalm 23:5

I'm completely loving Bible Art Journaling right now.  I still have a long way to go on the journaling process,  but i'm thoroughly enjoying tt, I tell you some days i can just whip things out like nobody's business and then there are others that i can't create a thing. lol
Here was my verse for today
Psalm 23:5
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil
my cup overflows.




I drew these cups onto the page and then colored them with my Distress Crayons and outlined the words with my Black pitt pen.

My Project of the week for Repeat Impression stamps-Mar. 6th

Hi everyone, Deonna here. It's my turn to share a project of the week using Repeat Impressions Rubber stamps and i've chosen to show you how to make a Stamped Watercolor Background card.

Supplies that i used

Watercolor paper-I used 140 pound Canon paper cut to 3 3/4" x 5"
Ink pads- Water based dye ink- i used Stampin'up in Rose Romance, Lavender  lace and Mellow Moss
Repeat impression Stamps-10301-H, Patti's Flower Solid, 10314-H, Daisy Solid Large, 10311-C, Leaf Solid Small, 10318-D, Leaf Solid Large
spray bottle with water
Acrylic Block to mount stamps
Base cardstock to finish the card- 8 1/2"x 5 1/2" white cardstock folded in half. Cardstock in Purple cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", Pink cut to 4" x 5 1/4"
White cardstock cut to 8 1/4" x 5 1/2" and folded in half for card base 
A.T.G or glue
Ribbon, if desired and embellishments


1. Take your watercolor paper, Rose romance ink and your R.I. stamp (Patti's flower solid) Stamp the image onto your watercolor paper 3 times randomly. 



2. Using your mellow Moss ink pad and R.I. Stamps (small and large solid leaf), Stamp in various places around the stamped flowers.  


3. Using your Lavender Lace ink and R.I Stamp (Daisy solid Large),ink the stamp and stamp on the watercolor paper 3 times randomly. You may want to go back and add more flowers or leaves to fill in the space. This is optional. 


4. After stamping all of the above, take your spray bottle and randomly spritz over the ink.  This caused the ink to spread causing it to look water colored. The more water that you add the better the effect.  Set the wet paper aside and allow to dry. 



5. Create your card base and layer the purple cardstock on the card base. I used my A.T.G to glue each layer down. Then layer the pink cardstock on top of the Purple.




6. Once your card face is dry, run a strip of glue across the center of the card face and glue down the ribbon. Glue your card face on top of the pink cardstock.  




7. Decorate your card as desired. I added a handmade Crepe paper rosette, some white tulle and a bow made with a Martha Stewart Punch.
 Finished card. 


Thank you for stopping by today and i hope that this tutorial was inspiring.
