Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Live Laugh Love

Today's card features this week's Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Live Laugh Love (3108-J.)  Please visit the RI blog for the details of how to get this stamp 50% off this week only!  You need to follow the directions on the blog to receive this special price.  You can find the stamp on this page (scroll down a little ways) and here is a link to the Repeat Impressions store.  Check out the Design Team members' blogs for inspiration using this stamp!

Note: Some of these links go to the blog and not the specific post.  I will edit them as the posts become available.

Don't forget - you still have today and tomorrow to get your sketch challenge card entered.  There will be a new sketch on Wednesday.  There is a $25 gift certificate from Repeat Impressions up for grabs!  The sketch, details, and sample cards are available in this post.

This is a gatefold card - It opens in the middle.  For the Live Laugh Love panel, I brayered onto SU! glossy paper with a Kaleidacolor Spectrum pad, then stamped the image over that.  I cut it with a Labels Two Spellbinders die and added a little "bling."  The matting (Pink Passion cardstock from SU!) was also cut with a Labels Two, but turned the other direction.  I embossed it with a Swirls Cuttlebug folder and rubbed a little bit of white ink on the edges.  The background was stamped with another stamp from Repeat Impressions (Heart Flower - scroll down a ways) and colored with SU! markers - Pink Passion, Orchid Opulence, Brilliant Blue and Green Galore.  I also used a little dot from a Papertrey set.  I matted the side panels with more Pink Passion.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
