Now, I can't wait any longer.  Time to show you my cards using these amazing new stamps.

Card #1 - On this card I used the new Dress Form image 9307-L and for the sentiment, I used the new "Sew Special" 9314-E.  I stamped the image on dark blue, then stamped a simple flourish with VersaMark and embossed with clear embossing power across the skirt - I hope you can see it.  I cut out the dress portion of the dress form.  I then smudged the blue piece with white chalk ink.   I popped that blue piece over the full image I had stamped on white paper.  After that, I just dec'd out my card with some ribbon and buttons.

Here's a close up -

Card #2 - This gate fold card was soooooo fun to make.  For the image, I used the new "Pairings" image called Martini 9304-L and for the sentiment I used Cheers 9316-E also from that new collection.  This photo shows the card completely closed.  

This next photo shows the card partially open so that you can see the "gate" aspect.  

And this photo shows the open card.  I wanted to show you that the insert is embossed with this super cute little martini glass (Darice).

Card #3 - On this card I used the super cute bumble bee image from the 'Pairings' series - Bee 9308-C.   I stamped this little bee 3 times, cut it out with my octagon nestabilities and matted them with a layer of yellow and then black.  It pretty makes itself after that.  The sentiment is called Buzzillion 9317-E

And a close up so you can see how darn cute these little bumble bees are.

Card #4 - My favorite one!!!!  As if that wasn't enough super cute bumble bees, here is a whole bumble bee scene.  Love it!!!  It's called Happy Bees 9301-P.  So cute!!  The embossing folder is a Sizzix.  

Here's a look at the inside of this card.  This sentiment is called "bee"cause - 9312-D and the super cute little bumble bee is that some image from card #3.  

So there you have them - those are my cards created using the new 'Pairings' series at Repeat Impressions.  Don't forget to go see the cards created by the other RI Rock Stars or use the links above.

Don't forget about those prizes.  Follow the instructions listed above for your chance to win.  Be sure to check out the RI Pinterest board.  I can't wait to see how many pins we accumulate.

  1. Wow, Joyce, fabulous cards! I love the texture in the your bee card and the dress form card is so sophisticated!

  2. Fantastic cards, Joyce. Love the embossing on your delightful bee card.

  3. Joyce, I love the martini glass and dress cards the most, but will probably make them all! Great job!

  4. Your cards definitely rock! I like all your paper choices against the images. Coloring is wonderful. Embossing is great. I can't believe you used 3 folders I don't have. Now I have to go shopping!
    I can see why the 4th is your favorite, but I'm leaning more toward the first with the stitching.

  5. Really like the "gate card," and with the nickname Bee-Jay, I like all things with bees! The sew cards are clever, too. Thanks

  6. WOW! What eye candy for the hop. Excellent job showcasing the stamps. I truly like the inside of the martini card. Perfect showcase of embossing.

  7. Great idea to make a gate fold card, Joyce. Your cards are all fabulous and that bumble bee card is the cutest!

  8. they are all fantastic, but I must say I feel in love with the last one, those bees are adorable!!!!!!
