The House That Stamps Built: Sketch Challenge

It’s the fourth Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built sketch challenge.  You have until Tuesday, July 28th to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions.  Feel free to turn the sketch around as long as the basic elements are included you are good to go.

Here’s the Sketch:

Sketch J2215

For my card today I took a trip to Africa using the Passport Series at Repeat Impressions Stamps.  The image I used is called “Chimp 5306-J” which was stamped using Adirondack Espresso ink.  I cut him out using the My Favorite Things Stitched square die and distressed the image with Antique Linen while it was still housed in the die to create that white frame.

The paper is from Prima called, “Cartographer.”  I did the same treatment of Antique Linen with the My Favorite Things Stitched circle and then sprayed Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray in for the background for my “Happy Hello-9717-C”  sentiment, which I stamped only a portion of.  One of the tricks I use to stamp only a part of a stamp is to use scotch tape to cover what you don’t want, then ink up the stamp and remove the tape.  That leaves only the portion you want to stamp inked. I finished off the card with some Club Scrap ribbon.

  1. Kathy I find it hard to keep up with all the fantastic creations that just come from your fingertips. Don’t know how you keep them coming. This latest one for The House is fabulous. Love the background and of course that chimp is perfect. That passport series set is on my wish list. Thanks for the lovely compliments you send my way too. I really appreciate them.


  2. That chimp is such a fun stamp to use, Kathy and using him in this sketch was a great idea. Your card is fabulous.


  3. This card is very cool! The background paper and colors are just perfect for the whole theme of your card. Fabulous.


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
