One Layer Cards

June 5, 2012

We have a special treat today – several of our Designers took on a challenge to create one layer cards.  You’ll love the techniques they used to accomplish stunning results!

by Heather Telford;

SUPPLIES: Bamboo Branch 2977K, Free Flight 30-117. Heather masked the moon and the right side then sponged in three greens. She stamped the bamboo repeatedly in the same greens, removed the masks and add the black bamboo and sentiment.

by Elizabeth Allan;

SUPPLIESSweet Wishes 30-104, Wow… 40-112, Storm 01-001.  Masking done in three ways: 1) Masked off the interior square, 2) Masked the circles, 3) Masked the area around the colored rectangles.

by Cathy Andronicou;

SUPPLIES:   Casual 3365K, Gratitude 30-105.  This card uses an embossed circle (Spellbinders Grand Nesting Circles) then was distressed with Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves.  Flower centers were enhanced with Orange Peel Stickles.  The border on inside of the card was distressed and cut using Spellbinders Edgeability Classic Petal.

by Karen Dunbrook;

SUPPLIESBreezy 40-111, Sweet Wishes 30-104.  Karen needed masculine cards to add to her collection – she’s on a mission to create more of them to have on hand. Karen masked the center portion, stamped the ferns in 3 different colours of Distress Inks, then added sponging with the same colour. Karen then removed the masks and added the scoring lines.

SUPPLIESWords Express, Tiny Wishes.  Image was colored with Copics and distress inks.

    Amazing to see that masking can produce such varied results – this has definitely inspired me to work on the technique as I can see that I’ve only scraped the surface so far.
