Stamp Simply #110 – Feeling Square?

Feeling Square? – Today’s challenge has to do with shape — squares.  NO rounded corners on todays card — so that means NO oval or circular punches or die cuts — only square shapes.  The card must be square, any size, as long as it’s square and all layers added must have squared corners.  Only your small embellishments can be round or oval — so you can use buttons, brads, primas, etc. as embellishements, even though they may be round. So if you’re feeling a little square, today is YOUR day!!!  You know, it’s TOTALLY HIP TO BE SQUARE!!!!  Have fun!!!

And here’s my Square creation for today:


A 5.5″ square card — Stamped VERY Simply.

Image is from Old Fashioned Christmas by JustRite, used on the 3 1/4″ Wood Stamper, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and it is Copic Colored — the square is 2.5″.

Sentiment is from Many Merry Messages by SU, stamped in Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink, my favorite ink for crisp and clean sentiments.

Double Embossed Lines are made with my Scor-It, spaced 1/4″ apart.  Using Perga Soft  makes your scoring tool just glide over even the heaviest of papers.


Trying to show you how deeply impressed you can get your embossed lines when using a Scor-It.  Makes for very professional looking embossed designs.

All items linked in the text above are available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Thanks much for stopping in — it’s been an exhausting day so I’m signing off without much chit chat!

    Too cute!! I love snowmen and I used one on my card.


    Thank you for a great challenge, this was my first time playing and I will be playing along again.

  20. Sam says:

    An interesting challenge – I often think that my cards look too harsh if I don’t soften them with a few rounded corners! But in any case, I like the square card that I’ve made, although you have to look at it sideways to see the squares!!


  21. Julia Aston says:

  25. Amy/rohla says:

    So clean and crisp, Sharon! Love the subtle embossed lines and the way mr. snowman pops off that white!

  26. Cat Spicer says:

    I was so excited to celebrate being ‘square’ until I realized I used a standard rectangle base. Ugh. Oh well, I’ll still share and try to make another that fits all the rules.
