Challenge 74 | Time To Sketch!

It's time for a sketch challenge!  We love those!  Stretch your imagination and see what you can do with your old stamps!  So be sure to give it a try and join us!!

  RRCB 74

We have made a change to our challenge rules – you have always had to use a stamp older than a year but now you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. After all – we want to give these old stamps some love!


Are you on Facebook?  If you share our challenge on your Facebook page, we will happily share your post!

To be considered for a Top Pick and to receive comments - be sure to link your card below!


Be sure to play along with us! This challenge ends November 3, 2017.


We are excited to welcome Tenia Nelson as our guest designer for this challenge!  Tenia's blog is called Jazzy Paper Designs and you must visit to see the amazing cards that she makes.  Each card is so unique and well thought out.  Tenia gives easy to follow instructions so that you can try her different techniques.  Just check out the card she made for us - I love how the kraft base really showcases the sentiment and images.  Wow!  A stunner of a card and a great take on the sketch!!  Thank you Tenia for being our guest designer!

My first time here playing along- I'm so glad I found you as I have just got all my old stamps out of the cupboard and giving them some love again.

Hello Fiona: I'm so happy you found our challenge blog and that you are inking up some old, beloved stamp sets.
Thank you for participating and we hope you continue to give your older than one year stamps some much needed inking love.
