Repeat Impressions Designer's Choice Challenge - Stair-Step Card




A new Wednesday brings a new challenge from Repeat Impressions. This week 's challenge is a Designer's Choice Challenge and Kendra is the "chooser." She has asked us to make stair-step cards. There are several different versions of stair-step cards, so decide which kind you want to do. Please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details, and to link up your card. You will find the wonderful creations by the Rock Stars there, too. Or you can follow these links:

I used the Repeat Impressions stamp called Wild Violets, found on this page. I colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions, also. My patterned paper is from the same matstack from Recollections that I've been using lately. (I've found I've been using purple a LOT lately! There will be another tomorrow, too.) I matted the image and sentiment after I scored some lines beneath each of them. I also added ribbon to the flowers panel. The butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I added pearls to the flowers and butterflies.

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

This is beautiful my friend. I really like these cards because they have dimension yet they ship flat. Great colors and I love violets.
