Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week


The stamp of the week this week at Repeat Impressions is this fun Celebration Burst, and it is available this week only for 50% off with the discount code found at Repeat Impressions blog. What a deal! Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's cards using this stamp.

For my card, I started with a happy mistake. My original idea of trying to emboss the Celebration Burst with white ink on white cardstock and sponge on several colors on ink didn’t work- couldn’t see the stars and bursts that well. So just to see what the idea would like with black ink, I stamped over it and got this cool look. The black was just a little off the white embossing and I really like how it turned out. I cut out my masterpiece with a circle nestie and layered that on another little larger circle of red. I stamped the sentiment (also from Repeat Impressions) in red and this is my wish for you! The background was layered and then embossed with a Sizzix embossing older that has swirls and stars too and then a border of punched stars was added for the finishing touch.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Aud Sentiments for Anything Goes.
