Repeat Impressions - Designer's Choice Challenge "For the Guys"



This week's Repeat Impressions challenge is a Designer's Choice Challenge.  Today's challenge is brought to you courtesy of Karen.  Her choice is to make a card "For the Guys."  Check out the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details on how you can have a chance to win a full sheet of unmounted rubber and to see what the other Rock Stars have created for the challenge.  Or, you can follow these links to their blogs:

By making a card for this challenge and uploading and linking to the blog, you will be entered into a random drawing to win an unmounted sheet of stamps of your choice. Great prize!


For my card, I used last week's WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch.  Visit the RI blog here for the sketch and the details of that challenge. You still have nearly a week to submit your entry. I paper-pieced the chair and mounted it on a white circle colored with a Copic marker and hand-drawn dashed lines, then on a circle of the same paper as the chair, and then on a burgundy scalloped circle.  The trim piece is a stripe from the same paper as the chair.  I also used that paper for the bottom section.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions. This card was used as a birthday card for a friend who loves to read.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Lovely card! Wonderful job on the paper piecing and I like the way you have done the faux stitching around the mat.

Very nice Lynette! I've been playing with paper piecing myself, but nothing is looking as great as yours.
