RI Designer’s Choice Challenge–Lynette



Hello and happy Wednesday everyone~

Wow…this week seems to be going so fast! Maybe my kids are with me all day :) Anyway, it’s time for Designer’s Choice Challenge from Repeat Impressions! It’s Lynette’s turn and she is challenging us to make a father’s day card w/ texture! (I like the twist she added!)

You will have two weeks (by June 21st) to enter your project. When you finish your project, make sure you link it to the DCC post at RI blog where the inlinkz are located so that you will have a chance to win the RI gift certificate! For more information about the DCC, please visit The House That Stamps Built (RI blog). Can’t wait your creation!


For my card, I used Large Pine Forest (2709-I) for the image and Father’s Day (1138-E) for the sentiment. I colored the rubber with markers and stamped on the circle mat and simply stamped the sentiment right below the image. For the texture, I used the karki crepe Ruche paper from PaperTemptress. (the texture of the paper is so wonderful IRL!) I also coordinated with the BG designer paper and espresso border. To finish off, I embellished with the olive ribbon, baker’s twine with button and rustic gold pearls.

I used the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketch 111 (SSS111).

Great guy card, Maki! Love the textured paper. I think I have some of that. There are so many things hiding in my stamp room.

Makiko, you are a marvelous artist. Your work reflects fabulous coloring and design. I really like the texture you added for this card, it is a great card.
I believe I found you through Lynette's blog, then I went to RI and saw an exceptional card you did with a young girl. I must say you made my day. TFS.
