Today’s JBWW Challenge……..

………is to use stamps that have never seen ink!

If your don’t have any rubber at the back of a drawer that’s lusting to get inky, you can use a stamp that you haven’t used in a long time. Have fun and get creative!!!

Please remember to add the keyword JBWW on Splitcoast gallery uploads so Sherry & I can find your cards!

I made two sample cards for the challenge. Both are 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.

“Eat My Bubbles”

I stamped the background directly onto Soft Sky CS. I stamped the fish, starfish, and clam again on Georgia Pacific CS. Everything was colored with Copic Markers. I then cut out all the images that I stamped on white and attached the on the background.

Stamps: Fishy Fishy – Rubbernecker Stamps, Phrase is from Gina K Designs (this phrase just cracked me up!)

Paper: Soft Sky, Georgia Pacfic White, Not Quite Navy, Soft Sky Designer Paper

Ink: Graphite Black Brilliance, Not Quite Navy

“America”

The one is a really simple card. No matting whatsoever. I stamped and colored the too cute image with Copic Markers. Then I cut it out. The squares on the side are 1 1/4″. I added a layer (just a pinch smaller) behind the patterned paper on the square so they would be stiff enough to pop up. The stars were stamped in Real Red and cut out and layered onto the squares. The corners were made but cutting a 1″ square on the diagonal.

Stamps: Sammy & Patriot – High Hope Rubber Stamps, Starstruck

Paper: Brocade Blue, Real Red Textured, Georgia Pacific White, DP All American Type – Doodlebug Designs

Ink: Graphite Black Brilliance, Close to Cocoa
