Oh my goodness! What an afternoon. I have been playing around with one-layer cards because I really like the CAS (clean and simple) style. I knew that one-layer cards and the CAS style were challenging, but it challenged me more than I can say this afternoon! First of all - Clean has a few meanings, and one of them would involve my NOT dropping the inked stamp back onto the card! Or placing my inky fingers on the card. Ugh! When I finally managed to do that, I could not seem to line up my images, argh! So the picture I am putting on here has a smudge, I picked that over uneven rooflines, LOL!
Today's efforts are for three challenges and a blog hop. This is my first blog hop, and I'm looking forward to it.
The challenges are Stamp Something (theme - Anything Goes) One Layer Wednesday (OLW53 - Home Sweet Home) and I chose to use the CR84FN colours this week
I'm also taking part in the Stamp Something 3 Year Celebration Blog Hop.
So, without any more ado, here is my entry:
I used (all Stampin' Up!):
Whisper White Cardstock
Ink Colours: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Good Neighbors, Congrats
Before I created the challenge card, I also whipped up another little card. I was going to add a sentiment, and then I decided that I would just leave it as it is. I like it, and I know a person who will like it too so it will be winging its way to a new home very soon.
Unfortunately I couldn't photograph the colours true to life. The three little owls (from Punch Bunch stampset) are Chocolate Chip on each side and Elegant Eggplant in the middle. The cardstock is Very Vanilla.
Please do leave me a message and let me know what you think of my first attempts at one-layer cards. I really enjoy hearing from my visitors, new and old. :-)
