Inspiration Photo Challenge at Repeat Impressions


It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. It is Geri’s turn and she has shared the photo above to take inspiration from and design a card with. Why don’t you join us and create a card inspired by the photo, then enter it for a chance to win some awesome Repeat Impressions rubber? Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's cards for this DCC challenge. I have seen them and you do not want to miss them!

I loved the colors in the inspiration photo- lime green with a splash of red, the glitter and the shape of the vase. I saw an ornament in the round shape and designed this card: 

Can I say I just love this card? I created a shaker with Repeat Impression’s ornament, some acetate, and mounting tape. I added white crystals, gold beads and red sequins as the shaker elements. The ornament becomes the O in Noel and I embossed the rest of the letters in RI’s Noel stamp with silver sparkly embossing powder. I added another red poinsettia inside the shaker window which I stamped and cut out of red paper. I completed the card with a few more red sequins and a Christmas washi tape strip along the top.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at My Craft Creations and the “Say it in Color” challenge at Love to Scrap (Noel is embossed with sparkly silver embossing powder.)

I think your shaker design has a real wow factor to it, it's so clever to make the shaker part from a bauble and I love the little sparkly goodies you used for it to 'shake'. Well done!
Thanks for visiting me and becoming a follower, I'm now following you as well.

Love this one Karen. What a great idea to use the stamp as a shaker card. I bought this stamp and only used it the other day.

I am a big fan of a more religious view of Christmas and so I love your take on "Noel". I love the shaker card. Wonderful job! Thanks for sharing at Love to Scrap!
