Simply Inked Team Blog Hop - One Layer Card

Hello and welcome. It is time for another Simply Inked Team Blog Hop. Our theme this time around is One Layer Cards. So cards that have one or less layers on them. These don't have to be simply by any means.


I have chosen to do a card that has no layers. Everything is on the card front. It was a fun card to make with lots of technique used.

I used the wonderful Breathtaking Bouquet stamp. It is large background stamp that covers the complete card front. I have trouble handling the large background stamps due to my bung wrist, so I use the Stamparatus. It makes it so much easier.

I used Versamark ink to stamp it and then gold heat embossed it. Because this was going to be a one layer card I had to work out how to put a sentiment onto it without adding a layer. So I placed a piece of card stock onto my card front so that when I stamped, that piece of card stock would act as a mask and leave me a space for the sentiment. I was surprised how well it worked.

Once stamped and embossed, I coloured the image using sponge daubers. It was really quick and easy to do. Here is a close up so you can see the gold embossing.

Beryl from the Simply Inked Team has made a card for this blog hop too. I am hosting her card on my blog until she creates her own blog. I love that Beryl has chosen one of my favourite stamp sets to use, the Painted Poppies. And the mix of colours she has used is wonderful.

To purchase any of the products used on either of these cards, see the product list below where each item inks back to my online store. Or use one of my other ordering methods. If you would like to purchase through Beryl, please use the contact form and I will pass along your details.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
