Simon Says........One Layer


It's Wednesday and that means a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme this week is "One Layer", and the DT are playing with Paper Smooches products.  

I think I've said this before, but I have great respect for those of you who can make a 1-layer card interesting.  I found this challenge quite challenging!

supplies: white cardstock, Paper Smooches Blossoming Buds stamp set, Simon Hydrangea, Hero Arts Bubble Gum, Wplus9 Silver Lining, and VersaFine Onyx Black inks, heart line die-cut, Paper Smooches Dashes die, Doodlebug Lily White Glitter sprinkles 

I masked my card diagonally and stamped a ditsy floral pattern, bordered it with lines of hearts and stitching to give it a lace-like edge, and then stamped my sentiment in the remaining area.  Lastly I stamped the 3 flowers near the sentiment and centered each with a sparkly enamel dot.

On my next card I inlaid my image and sentiment:

supplies: black and white cardstock, BoBunny dotted cardstocks in 2 greens, red, and yellow, Paper Smooches Adorable Array and Birthday Words dies, My Mind's Eye enamel dots

Now it's your turn!  I can't wait to see what you do this week!  We have a $50.00 gift certificate for one random winner of our challenge!

What gorgeous cards Lin - love the lacy border on the top card, and the drama of the strong colours on the second

Angela Walters said...

Could you please tell me how you were able to inlay your die cuts on the second card with it only being one layer? I can't figure it out! Thank you very much!!

Lin said...

Angela, I emailed you.
