Stamp Kissing & Stripes Challenge

Hello and Happy August!  July really flew by for me. I was much busier than usual, but I looked at how many cards I blogged, and it was maybe a little more than usual.  I do think that cardmakers and stampers are spending more time doing summery things, but here is a fun challenge to get your cardmaking going strong!


I used striped paper for my card.  I am still working on using up older paper pads, and this counts for that!  The stamped image was inked with light green ink, then I inked up my bamboo background stamp with navy ink and kissed it to the silhouette.  Finally, when that is stamped out, this is the result.  Love this stamp kissing technique!  I used navy cardstock to frame everything and to stamp my sentiment on. (It looks more black in the photo!  OH well!)


I hope you don’t wait too long to send out a card.  Use the Happy Whatever sentiment and just send it out to a friend!  They will appreciate it!


Supplies:  Just for Fun Rubber stamps Bamboo Background, Girl with Umbrella Silhouette, Hero Arts Navy Ink, Gina K Applemint Ink, Crate Paper Party Day 6x6 Patterned Paper pack, Gina Marie x stitched rectangle dies, Versamark Ink and Detail White Embossing powder
