It's a Repeat Impressions Blog Hop -

It's a huge day for me!  I have two blog posts today.  If your looking for my Meljen's Design's post, you will see it below, just scroll down.  If your here for the Repeat Impressions blog hop, Welcome!!! I'm glad your here. 

Wendy at Repeat Impressions really has her creative juices flowing.  You may remember we had a blog hop in May for her new Wine Time series.  Last month we had a blog hop for the new  Bottoms Up!!! series.   Today we are unveiling the new Contain Yourself series. 

What an amazing collection of containers.  These images are available individually or by the full unmounted sheet.
I made 2 cards using images from this great news series.  For my first card, I used several images. That fish bowl is image 9712-Q Fish Bowl.  That fun fish is 9716-H Fish Face.  The stream of bubbles is called 9713-E Bubbles and the sweet sentiment is 9720-C Big Wishes.
I just love this fish.  This is the perfect type of image to add dimension to.  Color the image on a base piece of card stock, then stamp it again on a small, scrap of card stock.  Color that 2nd image and cut out the portion that you want to use to create dimension.  Use foam tape and sandwich directly over that first, base image.  Super simple and a great way to make a card special. 
For my second card I tried some other images from this new series.  That great jar is called 9705-M Jar.  That lovely bundle of wild flowers is 9706-U Flowers and that sweet sentiment is 9711-E, I Love You....
