Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week

The stamp of the week this week at Repeat Impressions is this beautiful Pine Branch 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 started with a page out of an old book. I embossed the pine branch several times with white embossing powder. Then I sponged the book page with 4 colors of distress ink. I added a Thinking of You sentiment in a Nestabilities frame and colored the seam binding ribbon with the red distress ink before attaching to the brown card.

I am entering this card in the embossing challenge at It’s All About the Vintage.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Love how you have stamped on the bookprint and the distress inks add just the right touch of color.
