It's time for another One Layer Challenge and this time the focus is
For this card, I began with a black base card and used a Sweet Poppy Stamps stencil and Gold Embossing Paste. I sprinkled a little Glamour Dust over it whist it was still wet.
To make the sentiment, I die-cut the word 'Thanks' from a piece of card with a Cuttlebug die, using the waste as my stencil. The fact that the 'a' was open made the spreading of the paste easier as I didn't have to include a tiny piece for the space in the centre of the letter.
This was also sprinkled with Glamour Dust.
I was quite pleased with how this sentiment turned out!
For this weeks card I have also done a little Christmas card using the cute Christmas Icons from LOTV a long with one of the newest sentiments.
It's simply stamped in truffle memento onto crumb cake card stock and then coloured with promarkers. I have finished off with a little liquid pearls for the holly berries.
I've used a standalone die from Clearly Besotted as a mask for some distress inking
which I've stamped over with a Uniko Studio set - Nature's Treasures.
The sentiment is Clearly Besotted - Sweet Little Sentiments
which I've curved around the image and
to finish off a wrap-around of some gold organza ribbon.
I will never forget the first year I made my own cards at Christmas time and had to all the surplus postage thanks to all the embellishments and extras I had put on! With that in mind, this is a one layer card that will just need a standard stamp. Stamp is MFT, one of the arty brushstrokes that are so popular at present, with some Stickles added and a Stampin' Up sentiment
We really hope that you will pop by the blogs of the Designers as you will find some more examples to inspire you!
