Can't wait or don't want to play along? All these stamps are available now for purchase. Click on the Pairings link at the top of the main page of the Repeat Impressions website to see all these new stamps and more in their online store.

OK, now that you know how to win and blog hop, here are some cards to show you what all the excitement is about! I love how each main image pairs with some smaller images and sentiments. I am not going into great detail as to how I made each card, but if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me at khasheck at gmail dot com. First up is the awesome Dress Form paired up with the Spool of Thread in shades of purple and a perfect sentiment: 

Next up is another favorite of mine, the Martini and Olive and another perfect sentiment. I added a real drink stick through the olive for fun: 

My last card for today features the yummy Cupcake and another perfect sentiment. I love it when the sentiment goes so beautifully with the image and there are several sentiments and smaller images all designed to go together beautifully in this newest stamp series from Repeat Impressions.

 Believe me you will be seeing a lot more of these sets on my blog in the near future! And to see more right now, just click on the next stop on the blog list above. Remember to leave comments and Pin It to Win it too!

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenge at Through the Craft Room Door and the challenge at Crafty Sentiments to use a sentiment.

Stamping and hopping smiles, Karen

What a pretty background you have created in the dress form card, the background paper you made with the olive is so creative and of course, the cupcake card is sooo sweet!

Wonderful. I'm loving all the dress cards in the hop. Yours is esp. great with that lattice work behind it. Like the olives on the BG paper and the green/white contrast. And no cupcake is complete without sprinkles and glitter. Nice job!

Barbara-Jean said...

I, too, love what you did with the dress! and the cupcake looks yummy! Thanks

Such great cards using the new stamps. I, like everyone else, truly think the toothpick with the olive is ingenious. I'll be borrowing that idea for sure.

Karen, your cards are stunning. I love that you add so much texture and detail to the bg for each image. The dress form bg of the latice work is wonderful. Great job with the new stamp sets.
