I'm hosting the challenge on the Crafty Secrets member forum over at Splitcoast Stampers this week and I'm asking people to use checks on their projects. Lots of possibilities with this one - gingham ribbon, punched squares of paper, plaid paper or fabric...
I chose to stamp my checks by repeat stamping the border pattern from the Farm Chicks set to cover the paper. The fact that they're clear stamps makes this easy as you can see exactly where to line up for continuous coverage! I stamped two piece with the checked pattern and then overlapped them, trapping short pieces of raffia into the join for "straw" and stitching across to secure them.
I used the "Cock-a-doodle-do" sentiment so this could be a simple "hello" card or it could be used to congratulate somebody who's just achieved something to crow about!
I do like to make a project with a single stamp set and minimal other "stuff" from time to time - it's very satisfying!
