Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week

The Stamp of the Week (50% off this week with a discount code found at the blog!!) is Repeat Impression's Mussel Shell. When I first saw the stamp, I liked it but I was stumped for awhile on how to use it. I  have to admit, I am pretty proud of the completed card- while laying in bed one night, I had the idea of making a flower with it. I often go to sleep or wake up in the middle of the night, designing cards in my head. I know, I am crazy- or atleast totally addicted to this craft:)

I stamped the mussel shells on blue paper and cut out. The center is a Memory Box die with a lovely Repeat Impressions sentiment and Pearl Pen pearls to accent. The corners are a Spellbinders die.

I am entering this card in the challenge at The Paper Shelter to use punches and diecuts.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Karen, you are so clever to use this image for a flower - excellent job! Amazing the ideas that come to use when we are lying in bed, isn't it?
