DCC at Repeat Impressions

It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. It’s Joy’s turn and she is challenging us to make a card with some kind of water element.  After you make your card, you can 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. 

One of my favorite stamps from Repeat Impressions is this “Bottoms Up” stamp- those little duck buts just make me smile. I think the sentiment (also from RI) is just perfect for them. I stamped the ducks in black and sponged blue for sky and water. The frame is created simply by tearing down the top and bottom of a kraft piece, rolling up the center up and attaching with a strip of strong tape. I sponged the edges before attaching over the blue duck piece. I layered all on a black piece and also offset the white sentiment circle on a black circle, before attaching all to a kraft card.

I am entering this card in the Cute Critters challenge at The Kraft Journal and the “Things with Wings” challenge at Whoopsi Daisy.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Cute, cute, cute, Karen. I love how you created that rolled frame. Must give it a try.

Beautiful way you framed the ducks - but I really like your sentiment! Too cute!
