Repeat Impressions SOTW - Tulip Bouquet

This week, the RI Rock Stars are showing off the "Tulip Bouquet" - it's this week's Stamp of the Week at Repeat Impressions which means you can purchase this same stamp for 50% off - be sure to stop by The House That Stamps Built to get in on a great deal!

I went all CAS with classy lavender and purple; LOVE how this turned out.  I braided some ribbon through the decorative scalloped circle, adhered the final two ends on the back side (which is covered with a lavender nestie so no loose ends show); then made a double-bow with my bow easy and adhered it with glue dots.  The ribbon has wire in it, so it was a bit easier to manipulate and really stands its shape very well.

Be sure to check out what all the other amazing Rock Stars have created while you're visiting The House That Stamps Built.

I've had a crazy weekend with a basketball tournament Saturday and Sunday - 6 games in all; Kaitlyn played in 4 of those games, the other 2 were a friend we were watching.  Hour drive each way - that's 4 hours of driving and I'm exhausted.  I think Bleacher Butt makes me T-I-R-E-D!!!  LOL

Hope you've had a great weekend; thanks for stopping by to visit!  Hugs, ~M.

I love the tulip bouquet stamp. I'm trying to purchase it but can't find it to place my order. Can you help. The email I got from RI and House of Stamps was generic and didn't direct me. It doesn't come up as the stamp of the month. Thank you!
