MY PICK OF THE WEEK FOR MAY 2018 FOR REPEAT IMPRESSIONS STAMPS

Hello everyone!  

It's my turn to select stamps for my "Pick of the Week" from Repeat Impressions and The House That Stamps Built.  

Since spring and summer are now upon us, so many of us are turning our thoughts to our gardens.  Repeat Impressions has some fabulous floral and gardening stamps and I love playing with the ones that I have.  

I wanted to show you how I build a scene card with a collection of stamps with a garden theme in mind, so here are the stamps I chose and these are my stamp picks for this week:  RI#4317-E "Birdhouse", RI#4311-I, "Birdbath", RI#4312-G "Watering Can", RI#2614-D "Tiny Bird Front", RI#2616-D "Tiny Bird Side", RI#2617 "Tiny Bird Flight", RI#630-H "Iris" and RI#1101-F "Happy Retirement".  

Scene stamping isn't as daunting as many think, but it takes time to set up the scene and complete the process.  I find it fun and challenging.

After selecting my stamps, the first thing I do is make a mask of the stamps I'll be using. I like to use stamping mask paper rather than Post-it Notes, because I save them and sometimes get an extra mask out of it later on.  

The most important thing about scene stamping is to determine which image will be in front of all the other images and stamp that first.  



You then add additional  images in the sequence they should appear in your scene.  




Once you've stamped your collective images, you can add other images you might like in your scene and complete your card as you wish.  





Remember, you can get my Pick of the Week Stamps at 20% off , but for one week only.  

Head on over to the Repeat Impressions Store and shop away!!!  You can get an an additional 10% off all other stamps you might need/want if you use my coupon code RR10CW.  Have fun shopping!!!

You sure know how to make a simple scene look spectacular SS. The colours and stamp choices just marry together perfectly.
