Friday Three-Fer

I wanted to post another card this week using my Quartet stamp from Repeat Impressions and when I saw this morning's Stamp Simply Challenge over at Sharon Johnson's blog, and the Flourishes Friday newsletter, I was all set with ideas! I also wanted to participate in Sharon's challenge in honor of my friend Jenny, who has just become a permanent member of Sharon's Stamp Simply team. Congrats, Jenny!

On to the details of my three-fer card:
1. Use the Repeat Impressions quartet stamp - check!
2. Sharon's challenge - use Grass Green and Sky Blue AND paper piercing - check! You can't see the piercing too well in the photo, but I pierced little triangles in all four corners of the patterned paper background and all around the black mat under the quartet image.
3. Flourishes Friday - use a solid stamp - check!

I stamped the Quartet image using Versamark on glossy card stock, then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. Next, I masked each segment of the stamp and sponged Stampin' UP!'s Baja Breeze and Ranger's Peeled Paint Distress Ink in opposite corners. The patterned papers are from BasicGrey's Urban Prairie 6x6 paper pack and the ribbon is Baja Breeze striped grosgrain. My cute little bow was made using the Bow Easy, which you can get from Sharon's store.

If you haven't done so already, please sign up for a chance to win an unmounted sheet of four of these quartet stamps by leaving a comment on my blogoversary post from Tuesday. And check back Monday morning when I'll be announcing the winner!

Have a great weekend!
