Let's get hopping!

Be sure to start at the beginning, so you have the maximum chances of winning!

You will have until midnight CST on Saturday, November 15th, to comment.  
Winners will be announced on the Die-Versions and Repeat Impression blogs on Sunday, November 16th.

And now here are my two cards I made:


For this A2 card I started with blue cardstock for the base of the card.  Next I added the blue paper to the white cardstock to create the snow and the sky.  Then I cut out the Die-Versions Ice Cave die twice, once in silver and once in icy blue paper and pieced it together and mounted that on the card.  I then stamped the Repeat Impressions Santa Hat Penguin twice on white paper with black ink and then colored them in with colored pencils. I used a red and green Spica Glitter pen on the Penguins hats.  Once they were all colored in I added them to the card in front of the Igloo.  Then I stamped the Repeat Impressions Coolest Christmas stamp with Versamark onto the top left hand side of the card and added some white embossing powder and then heat embosed it.  Next I took my Die-Versions Wee Petites Snow Flurries die and die cut them with sticky paper and sprinkled them with cloudy glitter and attached them to the top of the card and then I added some pearls to the center of the snowflakes.

And here is my 2nd card: 


For this A2 card I started with kraft cardstock for the base of the card, then I added the snowflake print paper.  Next I cut out Die-Versions Whispers Delicate Tree die in green paper and then I mounted that on sticky paper, fussy cut it out and then added some Frosted Juniper glitter.  Next I stamped the Repeat Impressions Santa Hat Penguin stamp in black ink and I added some clear embossing powder and heat embosed that.  Then I colored the penguin with Copic Markers added some Ice Snow glitter and fussy cut it out and added it to the card. Next I took the Repeat Impressions Coolest Christmas stamp and stamped it with VersaMark onto white paper and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I rubbed some brown ink over the sentiment and added gold ink to the egdes and added that to the card.  To finish it off I added some bling in the center of the snowflakes and some sequins to the tree.  I really enjoyed working with the Repeat Impression stamps and I think they go together with the Die-Versions dies perfectly!!

We hope that we have inspired you to be creative, and that you'll do a bit of shopping at the Die-Versions and Repeat Impressions' websites!
