Repeat Impressions - Designer's Choice Challenge Pastel Spring Card

The Designer's Choice Challenge from Repeat Impressions this time was decided by Karen. She has chosen for us to make a spring card using pastels. You can find the details of the challenge on the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built. You will also find the creations by the Rock Stars there. We invite you to join in the challenge for a chance to win a full sheet of unmounted rubber of your choice. You can also find the design team's blogs here:

I used the Vase of Tulips stamp. I paper-pieced the tulips and the vase and colored the stems and leaves. I cut it with a Spellbinders die and sponged the inside before removing the die. I added pearls to the "bumps." I matted with black after punching the corners with a Fiskars corner punch. I used the same paper for the bottom layer as the tulips and matted that with black, also. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions.


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

Lynette, so pretty. I do love tulips they truly are a reminder that spring is coming. Of course being as far north as I am it will be 3 - 4 months until they will be in the gardens. Great look using paper piecing.

I love your Spring Colors card for my DCC and just had to stop by and tell you that! I am so busy with SAS4Kids and everything else I just can't get around and comment on the team's cards as much as I would like, but this card- as always- is super!
