SOTW at Repeat Impressions

Good morning! Time for the SOTW at Repeat ImpressionsThe SOTW "Arch Window" #621 is available exclusively at Repeat Impressions for a 50% OFF with the special discount code. To get the discount code and more information about the SOTW, please go to the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built.

For my sample I went with a door with a hidden message.  A neighbor's son has come home from Afghanistan and I thought this would be a cool card. I used the featured stamp "Arch Window" #621.  I colored the image with Copic's, cut it out and then embossed it with clear. The door I created using Spellbinder's Matting Basic's A and  B.



Here it is with the door opened and the message was computer generated.

No Red or Pink Challenge at GKD

Hi there! I made this card for the Jan. release challenge at Gina K. Designs that Lee is hosting. I just love this set. " Elegant Florals" and the sentiment is "Country Roads" illustrated by Theresa Momber for Gina K. Designs.

I'm a little disappointed with how my photographs turned out !! Try as I could, I just didn't like how it looks pixel-ly. My DH says I need a new camera !! That I need more megapixels. Well he doesn't have to say that twice!! Anyway the card is much prettier in RL than on here. I added a few views of it. LOL. The CS is by Gina K.Designs and the DP is MME. The dies are from Spellbinder's and images colored with Copic's. This set is in clear and I wanted the stems to curve a little, so when I placed the stamp on the block I moved the stem in a more curved direction rather then straight. then stamped it. I love it when you have more options.




Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

For my sample I used this adorable "Bulldog" #8101 image from Repeat Impressions. Now doesn't he have a face you just gotta love??  I colored my image with Copic's and cut him out.
