Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week


The Stamp of the Week this week at Repeat Impressions is this cute Birdhouse. You can get this stamp for 50% off all week - all the details are at our challenge blog, The House that Stamps Built.

I had so much fun making this card using a sketch I have seen recently out there in blog land. I found some dps that looked good together and taped them down on a rust card. The birds were punched (Fiskars punch) out of the dp with the sparkly spot in the dp used as the eyes. I cut out the birdhouse, paper pieced the bird holes, and raised it above a scalloped sponged nestie circle with mounting tape. The pearl flourish is the finishing touch. I really love how the card turned out.

I am entering this card in the "Anything Goes" challenge at Digi Doodles Shop's Best.
