The House That Stamps Built: Designer Choice Challenge

  It is my week to pick the challenge for The House That Stamps Built and since
Valentines Day is next week I thought "Hearts" would be a fun and broad

I started by splattering up a piece of glossy card stock with Distress
Oxides diluted on a stamping block.  I embossed Repeat Impressions
I then created a matching smooshed background with coordinating
Distress Oxides, die cut it and layered up my card.

I hope you will share your creations in our weekly challenge, you might just be the
lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the $25 Repeat Impression's gift
certificate. Each entry gets a chance, two if you use a
Repeat Impressions stamp.  My followers get a 10% discount -see
my sidebar.  Drawing is the first Wednesday every month.

For inspiration check out what my teammates have created:
