One layer...

Well, this will teach me.  I haven't made very many one layer cards in a while and now I know that if I want them to turn out okay, I have to practice more!  I've made three one layer cards that I'll share in a couple different posts.  Please be nice.  Like I said, I haven't done a lot of one layer cards recently! ;)

Here's the first one I'd like to show you~

For these fabulous challenges~




I've used stamps by Rubber Stamp Tapestry and a sentiment from my stash (not sure where from--got this at a consignment sale).  Rhinestones are by Kaiser Kraft and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

I'm not sold on this one.  I do like it, but I'm not sure it is the best I've made.  Oh, well!  I've got another card to share in this post--NOT one layer, lol!

Here it is~

For these fabulous challenges~




For this card I've used a rectangular stamp by Close to My Heart, bubble wrap, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I hand drew in the turquoise frame.  I think I like the artsy feel of this card.  It's still new to me to create things with an artsy feel but I'm getting more comfortable with it. :)

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my cards!  I hope you like them and I hope that you join in the fun with these fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping friends! :)

me again! Gosh I hadn't seen that your first card on this post is also for ATSM and it is another fabulous OLC. I love the way you create a little 'hug' around the edge of card and sentiment. I really love this design I have seen you use before-I have tried to case this but I can never make it look as fab as you do. Thanks for joining us with this card for ATSM, both your entries are fab x

I think your one layer card is fine. Not sure what you aren't happy with. Thanks for joining us at the Lollipop Ladies.

Thought you said these were not very good? Look more than fine to me!! Don't set the bar too high or some of us will never jump over! Love the colour combos in both card. Thanks for playing along at the Lollipop Ladies challenge!

Gorgeous use of the colours, Mynnette! I love your one layer card, so pretty! Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM xx

Both cards are beautiful, but I'm not surprised; you're cards are always fabulous. I think the one layer card is perfect and I love the three little rhinestones. I've been seeing that done quite a bit lately and I'm going to have to give it a try. Thanks for playing with the Lollipop Ladies.

Oh Mynnette, both cards are absolutely beautiful! I love the one layer card. They are so hard to do but you have mastered it! Great job working with the colors in our challenge at ATSM this week. Thanks for playing!
