Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, January Challenge #3

Challenge #3: Get your stamp on with repeat, I say repeat stamping!  Check out these examples:

I started thinking after looking at the samples, and although I hadn't included any stamps in my January kit,I did have the Shimelle stamps in my December Daily kit, and I had been wanting to use the lightbulb stamp like this anyway, so I was "off to the races", so to speak. I stamped around the edges of a 4x6 card making sure to take the stamp off the edges for a more realistic look, added a gold embossed wood veneer, and used a ruler to draw lines for my journaling. Here is the card I made:

And this is what it looks like in the spread:
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll join us in the challenge at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog!


  1. Gorgeous! LOVING that journal card you made!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Perfect! What a great way to customize a project and I love the addition of the gold tree.

  3. Oh, how I WISH I would remember to do border stamping! It is such a great & easy addition to a journaling card as you have done, or even around a photo mat or a full page... making yet another mental note for myself! Thanks.

  4. Such a great idea on how to use a small simple stamp like this to such great effect.


Thank you for your comments, they make my day!
