Hi there! I’m Geri, back with another Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions. This time I thought I would share how I stamp on designer papers. I like doing this when using any glass or see thru images. The first photo is the finished card.


I started out using “Wine Time” by Repeat Impressions. Stamped the image with black Memento ink on this great Designer Paper and then colored it using Copic’s .


Then I added a little grey along the sides of the glasses, stem, bottom and under the images to set them down. I then added a few strokes of white marker for the reflections.


This photo show the image colored except the wine bottle label, it doesn’t show up very well on the dark background, so I stamped the image again on white card stock. I colored the little image and sponged a little with Desert Sand Memento ink, then cut the label out and glued it to the bottle.


Here is a close up photo of the finished image.


Supplies used:
Images: Repeat Impressions “Wine For Two” #9507, “Friends & Wine” #9515
Designer Paper: Paper House- at the Vineyard a 6×6 paper pad
Copic’s: R37, W3, W1 and N0
Recollections white marker
Memento Desert Sand and black
GKD card stock
Prisma pencils: olive green and tuscan red

Now if only we were wherever this is!! Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for another DCC challenge on Wednesday July 2.

Yes, it’s time to get hoppy again!! We’re introducing another new stamp series this morning and having a blog hop to show off some of the new images. The Rock Stars have all been busy creating lots of fantastic cards for us.

This collection features some big, fun, fillable container images so I named the series Contain Yourself. In addition to these large images you will also find a great variety of smaller images to put inside. So many possibilities!

This new stamp series includes a large mason jar with lid, a smaller mason jar without a lid, a bouquet of flowers, candy hearts, a chocolate drop, peppermint candy, a big gumball machine (both with and without gumballs), a large fishbowl, plant, beta fish, fish face, bubbles, a happy frog, and some great coordinating sentiments. All of the stamps is this series are available for purchase today and can be seen here on the Contain Yourself page of our website.

Here’s a little sneak peek snipet of a Contain Yourself card created by RI Rock Star, Geri Utterback.
