Repeat Impressions SOTW Birdhouse

We've got a new Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week, Birdhouse 4317-E.  Through next Sunday you can purchase this stamp at half price.  Get the details at the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, and to see the other Rock Stars' cards.

I stamped my birdhouse first then die cut and embossed it using the long rectangular nesties. I stamped the grass, colored it and added the post. The post is a wood sheet embossed and colored with dark brown dye ink.  I stamped the birdhouse a few more times on patterned paper, cut them out and paper pieced the sections and added the heart to the sentiment. The bright Bo Bunny paper was the perfect companion for this spring card. 


  • Stamps: Repeat Impressions Birdhouse 4317-E, You brighten my day 8623, Grass 3413-C
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Vintage Sepia for the sentiment
  • Paper: Bo Bunny -Vicki B 6x6 , SU! Melon Mambo cardstock, Neenah Bright White
  • Other:  Rectangular Long Nesties , SU! Melon Mambo ribbon & wood sheet, Copics in E57 and YG13, Grand Caliber.
