Hi there! I just recently got a stamp order from Flourishes and sure do love their images!! The one I used here is a set called "Mountain View" I started out with Copic's and then used my prisma pencils. Then sponged in some white to make it look misty and finished it off with my white gel pen.

Good morning! I'm back with a new project for Repeat Impressions. I thought I would share a couple of ways to make a base for cards dies using with fancy lace borders. My daughter Theresa showed me this easy way to attach a base using Spellbinder's Majestic Labels #25. In this sample a shaped card. where the lacy border is covered by the base. After assembling the front of my card using die #6 and #5 and the the front panel is #4. I added my sentiment and my stamped and cut out the poinsettia's, I set it aside.
For the base : Use a 6 1/2 by 8 1/2 , score and fold along the 8 1/2 side
of cream colored card stock and placed the folded side just below where the top of my card would be and cut it out using just the #6 die, as shown in photo. Glue the back of front panel to the front of folded base.
Here is a view of the side
I used pop-dots under the top panel and flowers.
This last card is a card I made earlier this year and in this one, using die #6 for the base. In this sample the base is glued to the front along top lacy portion, leaving a open lacy border. Cut two and emboss. I did a score line just under the lacy top border ( so you can open the card) on one of them and glued just the top lace parts together. The front of the card was made using a piece of MME DP and die #5 cut and embossed it. Using very vanilla CS cut and emboss #3 and #4. I then sponged a little memento ink and attached my cut out images.
A side view.

Hi there! How things going for you all? How about a fun challenge at Repeat Impressions? This week Melissa is asking us to make a snow fun card or project. Hope you can join us as we would love to see your creations.
You can find all the info for this challenge at Repeat Impressions blog The House That Stamps Built.
For my sample I did a snow globe. I got these at Michaels last year and are real easy to make. Just add your photo and water and it's ready to go.
I used Repeat Impressions " Let it Snow Chorus Line" #2017, this stamp has five snow people which was longer than my space so I cut out two to fit the globe. I did the same on the reverse side using the other images.
I tried to capture a photo of the snow swirling around. Not the best photo but you get the idea. LOL
