Just Add Ink # 485…One Layer!

one layer

Well here’s a great Challenge for you…. Just Add One Layer…… that means no additional embellishments or layers of Card Stock….pretty much it’s one piece of card and some ink.

I thought this Challenge sounded pretty hard…..but I loved it!!  It was great to get back to ink and paper, letting the stamps and colour be the hero.

So I managed to stamp a few cards.  Here they are:

First up I used the Painted Poppies Stamp Set, teamed with the Swirly Frames stamps.

For the second card I used the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set.  Love this set – perfect for one layer cards because the images are nicely shaded.  This could be stamped in any colour too.

My third card was using the Forever Blossoms Stamp set.  So pretty.  The sentiment is from Rooted in Nature.

And the last one is the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set.  It’s a really fun reversable set.

But Oh darn……after I stamped it I realised I had the card upside down!!   Oh man, don’tcha hate that!!!   IMG_0444
Yeah – so as you can see, I really had fun creating one layer cards with some new stamp sets.  Can you believe I did all these cards in a very short time, before work one morning!  I could have kept stamping for a while longer too.

No photo description available.

The pic is a little bluey – because I had fading light……but the card is really Black White and Silver.  It;s also quite hard to photograph the metallics.

You can choose Two and join this Challenge too.    Share your creations with us at Just Add Ink.

JAI # 217 Just Add a Cup cake or Cake

This sounds like a yummy challenge doesn’t it?   It’s certainly a fun one.

At first I did not think I had any Cake or Cup Cake images in my stamp collection.  But I do have a couple.

I went for peppermint green! Yummy.

The colours are actually Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe.  For the Layout – I looked through some old Catalogues for inspiration.  The stamps came from the Happy Moments Stamp Set.
