One Layer Wednesday Card

Today I've dabbled with the idea of a one layered card, which to start with I found quite daunting and had to put my Big Shot and dies out of sight for awhile. I looked at the inspiration on the Simplicity blog for some time before an idea came to me.

With the weather being quite gloomy at the minute, the bright colours I saw in this picture cheered me up considerably, and have put me in great spirits for Wimbledon. I see another afternoon of sitting on the sofa crafting in front of the TV again!!! Good job I did my chores this morning isn't it?

Anyway, this is the card I came up with

I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to reposition the branch for the lower bow, and just the end of the main stem to elongate the first stamped image.It's a little fiddly with my Arthritic hands but worth it in the end I think.

Here's what I used to make it :

Recipe : SU Whisper White card stock
              SU Garden Silhouettes, Woodware Butterflies stamps, and Fiskars sentiment
              SU Yo Yo Yellow,Crushed Curry,Certainly Celery,and Sahara Sand inks

Thanks for looking at my blog, and if you can please leave me your thoughts as I love to hear what other crafters think of my work.

Here is a different colour combo while I've been playing with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig,is it better than the yellow?

Enjoy the tennis,and I'll be back tomorrow with the next challenge card I'm working on.

  4. Both of these are beautiful but the yellow version is my favourite. You sound very organised - getting all your chores done so that you can watch the tennis. I haven't caught any of it yet! Vx

  5. These are really lovely - the branch and flowers are so pretty! I think my favourite is the yellow one!

  6. Tjey are both fab. I don't know if it's because I am left handed but I just can't use those Stamp A Ma Jigs. You are obviously a master!

  7. These are lovely cards. The yellow flowers look wonderful on that branch. so pretty.

  8. What lovely cards!! The flowery branches are so pretty in both colors...wonderful work:)!!

  9. Beautiful card Bev, I love the delicate branch. Pink one is gorgeous too :)
