April 5, 2017 The House that Stamps Built Challenge


This week over at The House that Stamps Built is Designer Week choice and Joy choose "use a diecut".  I love diecuts a lot - much easier than fussy cutting.  I decided to go with a beautiful inspiring sentiment Dream, Inspire, Hope, 3101-J stamped in Kaleidacolor "Berry Blaze".  Cut out with a die with a bit of fancy work around the square.  On the corners I put Falling Feathers 916-F stamped with the Berry Blaze colors and then fussy cut and popped up on each corner.  I used the Falling Feathers as the background of my base card as well.  For my main image to go on I used Tiles which I won in some blog candy from Laurie a couple of months ago and I have been having a lot of fun playing with this unique set of tiles.  Again I used the Berry Blaze colors and stipple brushes (after I found them).  A few pastel sequins and the card is complete.  

Why not join us this week over at The House that Stamps Built challenge blog and make something beautiful with a die cut as your inspiration.
You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice in the drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.

Fabulous card Shirley! Like this saying, your colors and the way you did the layers with the white on that bottom adds a look of more dimension.
