Hero Arts challenge – 1 layer card

Hello again! I hope your week is off to a good start – it is a busy one around here. Trying to stay occupied with daycare closed and rainy days – not the easiest combo with a little guy who likes to constantly be out & about!

I have a quick one layer card to share today for the Hero Arts one layer card challenge. I really love one layer cards – sending mail from Switzerland is really pricey and nice flat cards come in very handy. I often use stamp layering on a one layer card to create the appearance of depth. Elements like ink splatters, large sentiments and rounded corners also help a lot to achieve a cohesive look in a single layer.

I used a new favorite color combo on this card – Lemon Yellow, Butter Bar and Dark Quartz – love how these worked together. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today – I really appreciate it!

Hello!

Hey friends. A super quick post tonight – its 9pm and we haven’t even gotten around to dinner here, so going to keep this quick! I made a card for the current Case this Sketch challenge.

Hello_splatters

I kept is simple with a stamped background and layering my ink splatter stamps directly on top on the background, along with a few real ink splatters to give it a more cohesive look. I die cut ‘hello’ 4 times to create some dimension without bothering with foam adhesive. Some sequins and voila!

Thanks for visiting & have a great day!

More one layer cards

Hello again!

Happy weekend to all of you. I’m happy its the weekend, but as luck would have it the gorgeous weather has turned dreary & wet – not sure why that always happens in time for the weekend.

Anyway, onto today’s card. This is another one for the latest Online Card Class – 1 layer cards. To see my first Copic one layer card, go here.  I watched Dawn Woleslagle’s video with amazement as she did faux watercoloring with Hero Arts ink & the Copic colorless blender – her results were stunning. Mine, not so much! But, I’m still sharing them here. It was an interesting process & I think the stamp I chose wasn’t great for the technique. Curious to try some larger stamps for this again soon.

That is all for me today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a new Paper Smooches Sparks challenge, so be sure to stop by!
