Sketched Lady Gatefold Card

There's not long left to enter the "Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside" challenge on the Clarity Stamp Challenge Blog. Entry closes at 8pm on the 31st July. There's a £50 Claritystamp voucher for the winner, who is chosen at random, so it's well worth entering.

I've just written my blog post for the next challenge which starts on Thursday and I look forward to sharing it with you. Until then I have two cards using the Large Sketched Lady stamp that were on Maria Simms' Clarity Take 2 show.

This is the first one.

Part of the kit on Create and Craft was a mask for the stamp and its mirror image. I made this card to show off that feature.

I stamped the lady onto Theuva card with second generation ink and then used the Splodge Away mat to create the mirror image. I then cut them out with a scalloped Spellbinders die and masked off the ladies.

The background pattern is made with a Butterfly Garden Spellbinders Impressibilities. I placed it on top of the card, with the scalloped die still in place, and sponged Adirondack Mountain Rose ink through it.

The ladies' skin is coloured in with ProMarkers. Her clothes are stamped onto coloured paper, cut out and stuck on. The pattern on her dress is made with the same corner stamp I've used on the card.

I used the same technique inside.

The Large Sketched Lady was the first Clarity stamp I bought about 4 years ago and I still love it. It's a great stamp that you can do a lot with.

Stamps Used



  1. This is a beautiful card Lynne I love this lady. I haven't got her and keep saying I will get it but after it was on C & C one of the girls asked Maria could we do a workshop with her so I am going to wait. Keep all these lovely cards coming they are always very inspirational xx

  2. Gorgeous card Lynne, and such a great use of the stamps...really shows how versatile they are.
