Julie's One Layer Challenge!!


Another one of this week's Dirty Girl Challenges was to do a one layer card. Now this, as you may have guessed, is quite a challenge for me. I am of the mind that 'more is more'.....I love adding layers and embellishments, stickles and rhinestones!! So doing just a one layer card was definitely going to be a challenge and I really didn't think I could do it!!! Really!!!

But I pulled out some new clear stamps by Stampendous!! My favourite Stamp store, Stamp Art, had a fabulous Christmas in July sale last weekend and I scored some great holiday/winter stamps!! This was the first time I had been able to play with this set, which is called Winter Family. It has a whole bunch of snowpeople plus a snowcat and snowdog, as well as a couple of sentiments and snowflakes! It's not too big either so the stamps are perfect for little notecards or tags!!

Anyway, I grabbed some Whisper White cardstock and made a square card. I also decided to make this one a window card and used my Mega Scalloped square punch to make a window in it. I stamped my little snowman and snow dog and then used my SU markers to colour them in. Then I thought, 'Hmm. Where is my Liquid Applique?'. After searching my craft room, I finally found it and used it on the balls of their little hats and made them all puffy and 3-D! I stamped the snowflakes and sentiment on the outside of the card and added Diamond Stickles on the flakes and on the ground. Then I just added the new Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon and some silver thread. Hey. It turned out pretty cute for a one layer card..........so I decided to make another one.



This time I didn't make a window, but just decorated the front of the card. I used two snowmen plus the snowdog........he's just so cute!! I used a different colour scheme with the markers and added Waterfall Stickles on this one and red grosgrain ribbon!! I really like them and they were so easy!!

I am very excited today because I don't have to work for the next FOUR days!!! And this weekend just happens to be Virtual Scrapbook Weekend on SCS!! Woohoo!!! I am so behind on my scrappin', so all the challenges are going to inspire me to finish some pages!!! If you are a scrapper, you HAVE to join in the fun!! There will be challenges posted on Saturday and Sunday and you will have until later in the week to upload your creations!! Don't miss the scrappin' fun!!! And have a fantastic weekend!!!

I love the way you did these snowman. Blue/white/silver is my favourite Christmas color combo.
