Designer Choice Challenge - Winter


It's time for another great Designer Choice Challenge (DCC) for Repeat Impressions Stamps!

We are thrilled to have an amazing Guest Designer here with us today at
The House that Stamps Built!  Robin Clendenning, is helping us out today, 
and has chosen 'Winter' as her DCC theme.

I'm not quite ready for the snow to fly yet, but I do love creating for winter, so
this was a fun challenge.  I decided to keep it clean and simple.
Here is my card:

I used 2006-H Let it Snow, and 8805-K Snowflakes for this card. I actually cut the flakes apart, making 5 individual stamps - love it!

A bit of the card was masked off on the left, and a lot on the right.  The first batch of flakes were stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Next, I sponged on some distress inks until I had a color I was happy with.  Then I came back in with some navy pigment ink, stamped the sentiment, and filled in the open spaces with more snowflakes.  The final step was adding a wee half-snowball to the sentiment.  Very quick card!

We hope you will join us by creating a winter project, and entering it in Robin's DCC Challenge, at The House that Stamps Built!

Now it's time to check out the inspiration that my talented Rock Star teammates have created for you!
