Make it Monday #242: Sponged Stamping

Hi there! I have a card for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge today. This week's challenge is sponged stamping, I usually just ink selectively with the different ink pads, but I like the softer blended look from using the blending tool right on the stamp!

I don't love my card, but I'm counting it as a win just having finished it, with the crazy nausea I've had today. I stamped the sentiment in black on a white cardstock panel and then added the rain drops with Spring Rain and Blueberry Sky ink sponged on the stamps. I added some smaller rain drops in the Spring Rain ink, and then finished off the panel with rain stones and baker's twine. I cut and scored a piece of Blueberry Sky cardstock into a card base and stamped the chevron pattern on the bottom (and darn it if one of the chevrons didn't smoosh itself all ugly on the right side! grrr.) and then adhered the white panel on the card base to finish it off.

Bree and I have to go to the doctor's office today for her two and half years old wellness checkup. It will take forever (we regularly wait at least an hour for our appointments, which is super fun with a toddler.) and will not be fun. We might have to stop by Krispy Kreme on our way home to feel better :)

I have a pretty blended rainbow-y card to share tomorrow! Have a great day!




  1. What a sweet card! I love those raindrops with the sponged color and that sentiment is awesome. Hope all goes well today!

  2. I really like this card. I love the subtle blue tones in the raindrops and the glossy accents drops that embellish the card. The zig zags on the card base really ties everything together. Really great design!

  3. Love the colors and stamps you used in your card!! beautiful coloring job. I hope you and the WHOLE household are feeling 100% in no time!!


  4. Beautifully blended, Becky. Hope you're on the mend soon!

  5. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well and waiting in a doctor's office besides ~ ugh! Love the two-toned raindrops with your chevron background. Didn't even notice the smudge until you mentioned it in your post.

  6. What a fabulous card!! Love the raindrops and the attention to detail is wonderful!

  7. I've noticed your great card at MIM #242 gallery. Wow! You matched the drops so well with the zigzag stripes!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments are, as always, much appreciated :)

Have a fabulous day!
