Stamp of the Week and Happy 4th of July!



The stamp of the week this week at Repeat Impressions is this 4th of July perfect “Here’s to you America” stamp, 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 was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest. I used my lacey edge border punch from Martha Stewart to create the red and white stripes of the flag on a white base. I stamped the Liberty and Justice stamp in white on navy blue for that part of the flag. And I stamped the perfect sentiment in navy blue on the top of the flag. The whole flag piece was layered on a navy blue card. 

I scheduled this post early and have taken a few days off from blogging because my grandson is visiting for his first time alone at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We have movies and ice cream and lots of fun planned and I am sure I will be exhausted but happy while he is here.

Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!

Stamping smiles, Karen
