This week's Stamp of the Week from Repeat Impressions is Winter Tree, found on this page. It's available for 50% off through Sunday. Please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details. You will also find some ideas of what to do with this stamp there.

I stamped my image with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink on blue cardstock, then used bleach to "paint" the snow. The sentiment (from Repeat Impressions) is also stamped with Sepia ink. I added brown pearls to the corners. I embossed the brown matting with a Cuttlebug folder and then added another layer of blue. The card base is ivory.

We'd love to have your join our challenges. There are two open at any time - the WHAT IF? Wednesday challenge and the Designer's Choice Challenge. Both have great monthly prizes! You can find the details for both on the Repeat Impressions blog, also.

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

Lynette, I do like the blue/brown colour combo. I never would have thought of 'bleaching' the colour out of CS to achieve the snow look. How smart are you? Then of course you know that I love cuttlebug embossing to give depth to background layer. A great card!

So true. Love that sentiment. The blue and brown are nice here together Lynette.

This is great! We used the same colors. Just makes sense for a winter tree! Love the wood embossing too.

Perfect use of this image. The embossed background is a great companion and the blue and brown looks good as a masculine card. Great sketch, too!
