I've made two cards from the same home-made stamps:
Karen, to add scoring to your card (you can just make the score lines out above and below the stripes).
I wanted to use stripes for a challenge at 365 Cards Day 180 - Stand-out Stripes. I don't have any stripy stamps so, following on from my success in making circle and ring stamps from foam, I made my own stripe stamps from foam.
Then I thought I would make it into stripy flag bunting for the CASual Fridays Banners and Flags challenge:
CFC67: Create a Clean And Simple project that features banners or flags.
using the colour scheme from CR84FN61, which is:
I cut strips of different widths and lined 3 of the strips on one acrylic block and two on another acrylic block, sticking them with Pritt Stick, so that I could ink one set in tan and the other set in aqua, like so:
Then I stamped onto cream card. I like that grungy, uneven finish.
I then overstamped with the flag stamp (freebie from Craft Stamper Magazine), cut them out and made them into a banner.
I'd trimmed the blue foam stripes because that block was slightly smaller and the foam was overhanging. So when I came to stamp the OLW card, the tan reached the sides of the card, but the aqua didn't. But I quite like it!
The Celebrate stamp and the Happy Birthday stamp are both from Fiskars Make a Wish Quotes.
