Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Rocking Horse

Another Stamp of the Week from Repeat Impressions!  After all, it IS Monday! This week's stamp, available for 50% off through next Sunday, is called Rocking Horse and you can find it here.  Just visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details.  Also check out the other Rock Stars' creations.

I stamped my horse on the red dotted paper and again on the green plaid.  I cut out the pieces I wanted.  I mounted the horse on a white square on which I had made a dotted border.  I used Nestabilities to cut the plain and scalloped circles.  I actually cut a piece of white the same size as the card front and added my layers to that.  I wanted to add ribbon and I didn't want it to show on the inside, nor did I want to cut the edges off.  (I have done that in the past, though, and I'm sure I'll do it again.)  The sentiment is also from Repeat Impressions.  The horse panel is matted with black and is mounted on Dimensionals.


Did you recognize the sketch?  It's the current WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch.  You still have eight more days (until Tuesday, November 2 at 5:00 p.m.  EST) to make your card using this sketch, upload, and link to the challenge found here.  Have fun with that!

In response to Barb's comment yesterday - I used a Cuttlebug folder, Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla cardstock, and my BIGkick for the embossing.

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