Hi there! Geri here with a new POTW for Repeat Impressions. For my project I made a gift card holder with a belly band.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions Poinsettia #2012-H and sentiment Christmas #1141-F (I inked up separately for a different look)
Embossing powder (clear)
MS punch
Copics R27 and R37
Removable tape
Gift card
Memento ink
Card stock
Designer paper
Washi Tape

The outside view with belly band.


Here is what the inside looks like.


I started out with some green card stock which I cut 6-1/4″ by 5-1/2″ and scored in half. Next I matted some designer paper to both inside panels of my card. Then using a piece of white card stock which I cut to 5-1/8″ by 3-3/8″, then scored at 5/8″ and 2-7/8″. Next I stamped the poinsettia image three times using a mask with the VersaMark and black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Colored the Poinsettias with Copic’s.


Using a circle punch about half way, punch out for the ease of sliding the card out.


Here on the small score side I added some score tape. After gluing the side together I then glued it to a slightly larger mat. I used removable tape to adhere it to the card (so you can remove it off the card). For other inside of card I made the panels about the same size as the card holder, added the sentiment and sponged around with Desert Sand.


To make the belly band, I cut out some white card stock 7 ” long, and punched it out with MS punch on both sides and sponged it also. Added a piece of Washi tape and the Poinsettia image (love this image) cut and embossed. Score the sides and glue together the ends. Slide in your card and close it with the belly band.


Great way to put a personal touch to a gift card. Hope you enjoyed my project and don’t forget we have a DCC challenge on Wednesday, hope to see you there.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! Geri here with another project. When I received this beautiful Dragonfly stamp from Repeat Impressions, I knew I had to make a 3-D project with it. It is a nice size image (about 4″ by 2″). I cased a art piece from Pier One.

I have two samples to show you.



Here is how I made the blue one. I stamped the image in Memento “London Fog”, colored it with Copic’s using BG10, B01 and BV00. Next I covered the entire image with “Wink Of Stella” GL clear.
After it dried I cut fussy cut it out. Next I laid it on a “VersaMark pad, pushing it down for good coverage, then used clear embossing powder, then heat set it. I used a small wooden block painted black and had my DH drill a small hole in the center. But a small box or vase will do. Bent some floral wire, snipped it the length I needed. Then glued the Dragonfly to the top of wire.

Here is a photo of supplies used for the blue piece.


A closeup image before adding it to the wire.


Supplies used for both:
Repeat Impressions “Dragonfly (lg)” stamp #4401-O
Floral wire
Wire snips
Wooden blocks
Black spray paint
Memento Black and London Fog
Copic’s: BG10, B01 and BV00 (blue Dragonfly)
YR02, YR21, Y21 and G21 (Fall colors Dragonfly)
Wink of Stella
Clear embossing powder
Heat gun

Hope you liked my project and if you give it a try, let me know, I would love to see it.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi there! Geri here with another POTW at Repeat Impressions. I used the out of the box technique stamped on both sides of the front panel of the card. This works great if you have a image that is the same on both sides. Like this gorgeous butterfly by Repeat Impressions.


Here is the inside view.


Here is how I created it.
I started out with a piece of white A-2 side folded CS. Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to place my image where I wanted.


Next I used a ruler to mark where I wanted to cut out a portion of the image.


I cut up and down to the butterfly and around the butterfly.


A closer view.


Next on the inside I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig again to line up the image perfectly on the already cut out side. Then stamped it.


I then rounded the front corners and randomly stamped the vine image and using the SIMJ to place them where I wanted them. Last I colored the butterfly and the vine. Then added the sentiment.
I colored them with Copic’s but keep in mind to use heavy CS or it will blend through.

Stamps by Repeat Impressions: “Butterfly (lg)” #9001, “Flowering Vine” #4314 and the sentiment is “Beautiful Days” #9206.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

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.
