Well if you follow me you know that i go through stages.  It wasn't that long ago that i was trying to learn water coloring. I've taken a break and i'm back at it again.  I love Art Impressions Stamps to make Water color Cards/Tags Etc.... It is taking a lot of practice but i do believe that i'm slowly improving. What do you think?

Project of the week for Repeat Impressions Stamps

Hi everyone, Deonna here, I'd like to share a 
Quilted, embossed Christmas Card with all of you today. 

This will be my last Project of the week with Repeat Impressions for awhile. After much deliberation, I've chosen to step down off the design team.  I just think that i need a break for awhile. That doesn't mean that i may never be back.  I may be begging to come back. lol!
Anyway, let's just get started with my tutorial. 



Supplies

RI Stamps- 9402U Quilt frame
9403P Quilt Background- I cut all of mine apart.
9404H Our Friendship, 9408H Friendship quilt square.
Cardstock base- baja Blue Cut at 4 1/4" x 11"
Red Cardstock at least 4 1/4" x 5" and a scrap for the sentiment
Embossing stamp pad
Black detail embossing powder-Recollections
Heat Tool
Paper trimmer
Black ink- Ranger Archival
"Let it Snow" Patterened paper pieces- 5 to 6 different prints.
Scissors
Powder tray or piece of Scrap paper
Glue 



1.  Gather the above supplies and stamp using Stamp # 9402U -Quilt Frame onto the Red cardstock using the black ink. Trim the Square out leaving 1/4" border around the image. Set aside.




2.  Gather various pieces of Coordinating patterned paper that you want to use. (This would be a good time to use your scraps) 

Using your embossing ink, powder tray and black embossing powder, stamp each of the individual stamps from the quilt background 9403P that were used on the Quilt frame 9402U (above is step 1) 
With the embossing ink - Stamp each of the corners onto your chosen patterned paper. Stamp twice with one scrap and twice with another patterned paper. You will need to stamp 4  of each of the same design for the last 2. Add embossing powder and heat Set. 




3.  Once each square is embossed, cut each of them out using your scissors and set aside. 


4.  Repeat step 2 and 3 with the square stamp 9408H  Friendship quilt square. Stamp the image with Embossing ink onto 2 different patterned papers. Cut out the entire stamped image of the first and just the star center of the second. set aside. 


5.  Stamp and emboss the sentiment 9404H- Our Friendship onto a piece of Red Cardstock. Trim into a square.  Trim a piece of Patterned paper slightly larger then the sentiment. 



6.  Lay each piece onto the stamped quilted square on the red cardstock from step 1. Make sure that your paper pattern is going the direction that you desire and glue each one down over the top of the base stamped image. Glue the star onto the center square and glue into the center of the quilted square. Glue the entire quilted square onto your blue card base. Glue down the sentiment and embellish as desired. 








 I chose to only add some buttons that i had in my stash. 
Finished Card


Have a wonderful day!

Watering Can Christmas Tags Day #7

Hi Everyone, i have more tags to share with all of you today.  Happy Belated  Thanksgiving everyone! All that i've been getting done is Truck shopping for the last week and i'm over it!!! I hate this. Not being able to find just the right vehicle for my son is Exhausting!
