Beautiful Days Blog Hop!


I am so excited today to be sharing some cards made with the new Beautiful Days set of lovely stamps from Repeat Impressions. We are having a blog hop to introduce you to these beautiful stamps and if you visit each blog and collect their special letter, you can Win the entire set of stamps!

After you collect all the letters you need to form the correct word, email it to Wendy at wendy@repeatimpressions.com before 5 p.m. Sunday June 3rd to be eligible to win the Whole set of stamps! WoW! Here is a link where you can see the Whole set. You can purchase them individually or as a set on unmounted rubber.

Here are the blogs you should visit to collect the letters and to see the aWesome cards made with the Beautiful Days set.







My first card features the Daisies and Butterfly stamp. I just love how the Whole set of stamps have a framed image with part of the scene outside of the frame. I colored the Whole scene, then cut the front of the card apart and attached again using acetate on the back. I stamped the butterfly again and attached with mounting tape to raise, then added some gems to finish the card.

My second card shows off the gorgus Water Lilies and Dragonflies stamp, and the Beautiful Days sentiment which I just love. You could use this sentiment for a Wedding card, a graduation card or any card for a special person. I stamped the Water Lilies and Dragonflies on aqua colored velum and cut out with a fancy Nesties circle diecut. I colored from behind and stamped, cut out, colored and attached an extra dragonfly and some  gems.

So have you guessed What my secret letter is? It is W, of course.

I am entering these cards in the Add a Sentiment challenge at Love to Create and the Anything Goes challenge at Tammy's Scrappin' Corner. 

Stamping smiles, Karen

Your cards are beautiful. I love the raised butterfly on the first and the waterlilies stamped on the vellum is such a clever idea. It looks so watery. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing! :)

Cheri said...

Beautiful cards, Karen. I especially love the way you stamped the dragon flies on the vellum. When I first looked at it, I thought, WOW, she cut that out!!! What a stunning card it makes. The pearl flourish added to the butterfly, along with the split scene creates a stunning card.

Patti J said...
