Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Jester

Imgp2332

Happy Labor Day (to my American readers.)  I hope you are enjoying your three-day weekend. Since it's Monday, it's also Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week day!  The SOTW for this week is this cute little Jester.  You can find him on this page - just scroll down a bit. The details on how to get this stamp for 50% off are on the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built.  Be sure to check out the other Rock Stars' blog posts:

For my card, I went simple and white. :)  I colored the image with Stampin' Up! markers.  The embossing is done with a Cuttlebug border embossing folder.  I thought it seemed to go with a jester.  The folder is one row of diamonds, so I used a craft stick (popsicle stick) over the folder to just emboss the diamonds and not smoosh the row beside it and ran it through three times.  I also used my Scor-Pal.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions, too.  I colored it with markers before stamping.  The matting is all SU! cardstock.

Also, you still have until Tuesday, September 6 at 5:00 p.m. to submit your card for the WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.  You can find the details here.


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

You find the most fun ways to use embossing folders. That little border under the jester just adds so much. Cute card!
