The Repeat Impressions design team take turns creating a Project of the Week and today is my day. I am showcasing stamping on book paper as well as a few other tips along the way using RI’s 9012-M, Dandelion Breeze. Now to show you how I created this card:

To begin, I wasn’t wanting the whole image, so I masked off part of the dandelion blowing away with a piece of sticky note paper. Just place the paper on the stamp that you don’t want to show and ink your stamp, then remove the paper and stamp. In this case I stamped on a page from an old book.

As you can see in the photo below, I stamped the image twice.

Here is what the stamp looks like so you can see what I masked off. Masking is a great way to get even more out of your stamps.

To make the image “pop”, I colored with long strokes using a light blue marker around the image.

Then started coloring in the leaves and flowers…

To finish it off, I added some glitter to the center of the flowers and the pieces blowing away, and some vintage soft lacey ribbon to emulate the softness of a dandelion.

Surprise! Today we have a special Tuesday post announcement to share with you… We have two new Rock Stars in our midst! Please help us in welcoming Kathy Stacy and Debbie Fisher to the Repeat Impressions design team.

Kathy Stacy

“Hello! My name is Kathy Stacy, also known as “The Crafty Nurse”. I’m a Southern California native who is now living in Upstate New York. By day, I’m a Registered Nurse, but most any other time you’ll find me at my craft table where my true passion is to create. I mostly make cards, but also really enjoy art journaling, jewelry making, and scrapbooking. I am an avid Copic colorer and swoon over new techniques using ink. I spend way too much on crafting supplies but thankfully, my saint of a husband for 21 years doesn’t complaint too much. I have two adult boys, Dan and Matt, who I am exceedingly proud of. Now that I’m an empty nester and am finally finished with school, I have more time to dedicate to my blog and am thrilled to be joining the Repeat Impressions Design Team.”

And a little message from Debbie…
