Hambo Hoedown and Art Impressions Stamps Challenges
Fun challenges this week at Hambo Hoedown and Art Impressions Stamps: At Hambo they want us to use their stamps to make a masculine card with stripes somewhere and at Art Impressions they want funny cards. I love Hambo stamps because so many of them crack me up and I love to make funny cards. I had these papers picked out from Tim Holtz because they looked old and so I just added my own lines with a thin black marker. I paper pieced the caveman and sponged his oval and the sentiment piece to look aged. The shape of the card was fun- I just cut the whole card down and matched red and aged map pieces when layering.
FYI- did you know some companies give you free stamps when you are published using their stamps? Hambo is one and I won these and others recently when I was published in Just Cards Birthday issue. Repeat Impressions also rewards stampers who get published with their stamps and also has a gallery you can enter and earn free rubber at as well. Check it out- both companies have buttons on the side of my blog. The key to getting published is sending in your cards- just do it!
