Get Inky! Repeat Blog Hop

Craftin Desert Diva's HERE

Welcome to Get Inky! Stamps "Repeat" Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first ever Get Inky! Stamps Blog Hop! Our theme for this hop is REPEAT, in celebration of National Repeat Day, which is this Monday, June 3rd! It is a day to repeat anything...such as eating the same thing for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner! Or, for repeating things you've said...are you ready for some blog candy blog candy blog candy? Yes? Well...great, we have some! Among the prizes, one lucky person will be winning a 3 set sample of our BRAND NEW, NOT YET RELEASED STAMPS!!! How fun is that!?! 

Along your blog hopping journey you will see some brilliant hand crafted works of art brought to you by designers from Get Inky! Stamps, and we know you're going to love each one of them! The first stop on the hop is Thia from Blue Moon Creation, so be sure to start there! We are THRILLED you could hop along with us! Have fun!
For my project, I made.......
This beautful card for my hubby!  =)
The theme of the hop is...Repeat.  My repeat is in the background of my card.  I created the backgroud using hearts from two Get Inky! Stamp set, Buzzing Bees & Sew Sweet Cupcakes.  I used a resist technique.  I stamped the hearts with Versamark ink on white cardstock; then  heat embossed with a Recollections brand sparkly embossing power (see below photo).  After embossing, I inked the cardstock with Festive Berried Distress ink.  As you can see the hearts have a white background, the original color of the cardstock, as the embossed areas resisted the ink.  
The sentiment is from the Sew Sweet Cupcake stamp set. 
And of course we have blog candy! To be eligible to win, you
