Deerscape Jigsaw Card

I thought I'd start with this card as it was one of my favourites.

It uses the new Jigsaw stamp that is for Lesson 20 of In The Classroom With Barbara Gray. It's a fab stamp and the masks that come with it enable you to do lots of fun things with it. 

I've not cut anything out here, it's all done with masking.

I wanted it to look like the puzzle isn't completed so I had to mask off one of the sides. You can just wipe away the ink, but I always seem to miss a bit so I use a mask. I cover up the bit I don't want inked with a Post-it and remove it before I stamp - that last bit is very important !  Guess who's forgotten to do that on more than one occasion?  lol

I used a combination of Post-its and the masks that come with the set to mask off the area around where I want to work..... 

.....I then created the image. I kept the design really simple as there were already enough things that could go wrong with this card!

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the background card into a jigsaw. At first glance it just looks like a sheet of green card but when you look closer you can see the jigsaw pieces. I did think about inking the edges but decided against it as I wanted it to be subtle, keeping the focus on the stamping. 

A few brads, some bakers twine and a Gandhi quote finish it off.

Stamps Used



  1. Super card Lynne, such a clever design! x

  2. Beautiful card Lynne. Love the sentiment you combined it with and all the finishing touches from the brads to the corner pieces make it a perfectly finished piece of Art.

  3. This is a very clever card and has more to it than frist thuoght. The Cameo work on the backing paper cutting out the jigsaw and all that masking well done

  4. Really clever! Can't wait to get this stamp

  5. Lovely card Lynne, the jigsaw is great fun isn't it...xx

  6. That is so clever, especially using the Cameo to cut the background, subtle and effective. As you say, there is an awful lot of things that can go wrong with all that masking and stamping. Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my Gelli "one-handed" card. I had not thought about entering it into the Challenge until I ready something on Barbara's Facebook this morning and realised that it might be eligible. I was more interested in proving that it could be done. xx Maggie
