Only one layer

One layer cards are always a challenge, for me at least, but that is what the Charisma Cardz design team have chosen for this week's challenge! The image must be stamped directly onto the card - no sticking on any layers at all and keep embellishments minimal - I know there are some crafters who can really rock this style but I have to say I'm not really one of them :o)
I have stamped the images (from Kaiserkraft) onto the base card, by masking the flower while stamping the leaves. I used Stampin Up inks to stamp and colour the image then added a shadow under it with a Promarker. The sentiment is also from Stampin Up and I used some sticky gems to add a little bling to the design

Challenges entered:
Digistamps 4 Joy - Birthdays are fun 
Fab 'n' Funky - Flower Power
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Anything goes
Inky Chicks - Mothers Day or Birthday 
Card Makin' Mamas - Birthday

Thursday 7 February 2013


Can you believe we're already at the end of the first week of February - only another week until Valentines Day which is, this year, followed closely by Mother's Day with Easter hot on it's heels - lots of work for us cardmakers in the early part of 2013!!
Today's card is my design team effort for this week's Charisma Cardz challenge where the theme is, of course, Love :o) I have used a Greeting Farm stamp, Madelynn and coloured the image with Promarkers, the backing papers are from BoBunny and Basic Grey, I used a Tim Holtz ‘on the edge’ die and the flowers all came from The lace, heart pins and jewel brad are from my stash.
