One Layer Challenge Off the Edge Week 176

Once more it's One Layer Card time and
 the title of our challenge is 
We are delighted to welcome another Guest Designer this week.
This week it's
Life in the Craft Lane
This is pretty amazing stamping, we're sure you will agree.
Do visit Linda's blog where you will find some more terrific examples!

This week I have a bit of a CASE from the very talented Debby Hughes, who did a super tutorial for Splitcoaststampers.  I've used Memory Box dies:  the plain one was used to cut the off the edge butterfly and each butterfly was then embossed with the detail die.  Salty Ocean Distress Ink was brushed through a mask and used for the Inky Doodles sentiment.  In real life, the gems and the ink are a very good match for each other

This is a fabulous stamp from Indigo Blu, stamped with Versamark and embossed with three different WOW twinkly embossing powders. The gaps were gently water-coloured with pale pink Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, embossed with the deepest shade of powder.


I've stamped the atom from the scientifically speaking stamp set from CBS onto Bermuda bay card stock from Stampin Up and the embossed with white embossing powder.  It's finished off with candy dots also from Stampin Up.

I'm in a fussy cut mood using my 'go to' stamp set for gorgeous florals; 
Beautiful Blooms from Uniko Studio; I use it loads.  I started by stamping the beautiful bloom in different summer colours and masking as I went along then fussy cut the edges to give them an 'off the edge' look. I've added a brand new Clearly Besotted sentiment from the newly released Sweet Little Sentiments set and to finish off some colour-coordinated pearls from Doodlebug.

Don't forget, we'd love you to visit each others' blogs to leave a friendly word... great friendships can be forged this way and we all love to receive a comment don't we... even the designers!!
