Challenge #40~Make your own stamp!

Heather here with your challenge this week. It's time to make your own stamp! I recently saw something on pinterest to wrap some twine around an acrylic block and stamp with it. I have a hard time with designing masculine cards, and I thought this would make a great background for a masculine birthday card! Let's take a look at what the Paper Girls came up with this week!

Heather used twine wrapped around an acrylic block.

Charity used a nubby soap holder dipped in white pigment ink.

Jessica used a small bottle of Elmer's glue for an "Eye" miss you card.

Michele used a marker cap.

Erica inked up an embossing folder.

Kristy used acrylic stamp blocks dipped in ink pads to make her own background paper.

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this challenge. You have until 11:59 MDT on September 28th to link up your project to be entered into this drawing.

As always, there will be a great prize for our lucky winner!  

And now......

The winner of Challenge #39 is entry #7 - Kimberly Fordyce. Please e-mail us at with your info and we will get your prize sent out.
