Stamp of the Week and A WINNER!!!!

Good morning!
Ugh...even as a retired person, I adamantly dislike Mondays.... hope your weekend was wonderful!

Today, I'm sharing the Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week, Bear Banner, with you.
Repeat Impressions "Bear Banner" #2623, Repeat Impressions "Wishing You the Beary..." #1917, DP from an old DCWV Mat Stack, Kraft CS, Quick Kutz Embossing Folder, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon, Martha Stewart Punch, Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury White CS, Perfect Layers Tools, Bear is Paper Pieced with a scrap of Prima DP.
This is one of 'those' cards!  You know the type.  You have a darling image, and a darling sentiment, and a great idea for your card design, but when it's all put together and you see it on the big screen, you go "ewwww".  Lol...  I'm pretty sure you know just what I'm talking about!  My Perfect Layers Tools were used to get my nice straight mats!

Be sure to head over to the RI Blog, The House That Stamps Built to check out details on how to get this Bear Banner stamp for 50% off!!!  

Now, it's time to check out what my fellow Rockstars have created with "Bear Banner".

Oh this is cute! I really love the punched borders. I know how you feel. I am my own worst critic. Even if this card did not turn out the way you pictured it would, it is still very cute.

Sandy Trefger said...

I like the card, but I know what you mean about things not working or looking the way you thought it would. Happens to me too! LOL
The bear and sign are really cute.

Cute card! I too have those times-it's like we made an awesome card and then something's just not right. The embossing and borders are cute with the cute bear and the cute sign! 😃
