What If? Wednesday with Repeat Impressions

You guessed it - it's another What If? Wednesday with Wendy & the gang over at The House That Stamps Built. Always a fun time; we hope you'll join us and create a card using Wendy's fabby sketch as YOU might win a gift certificate to Repeat Impressions and don't you know, they have amazing stamps! And talk about fast shipping? WHOA!

I decided to use more of the new Christmas Penguins - these guys are just way too cute! I used the image of the penguins spelling the word JOY in their stars; I also cut out each star a 2nd time and mounted with dimensionals.

I cut the image out with a rectangle nestability and a scalloped nestability, then I actually meant to sponge the edges with PTI Vintage Cream - but oops, I grabbed a sponge that hadn't been cleaned yet and ended up with a PERFECT red-dish color. Now how cool is THAT? LOL

The bottom snowflakes were embossed with clear powder and then sponged with the same red-dish color, then cut out with square nestabilities. What a great sketch Wendy gave us - won't you join us?

And don't forget to check out the other RI Rock Stars - they have some AMAZING samples to show you!!

Hugs, ~M.
