Some more one layers...

Yes.  I did have to practice until I got one I was really super pleased with!  Plus, I have TONS of butterfly stamps so I had to play with a few of them, right?  Especially since some of them aren't lucky enough to be used that often.

Here's an elegant one layer card~

Glitter Detail~

For these fabulous challenges~




For this card, I've used a stamp by Kaiser Kraft, a sentiment by Papertrey Ink, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!. After coloring the image in, I felt it needed a little more.  So I added glitter! :)  I'm very please with the way this card turned out.

Here's a more artsy one layer card~

For these fabulous challenges~




This utilizes the same rectangular stamp by Close to My Heart that I used in the last post, butterfly images by Bo Bunny, gold glimmer mist by Tattered Angels (to blend the inks I colored onto the rectangle), and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.  I hand drew a Barely Banana frame around the rectangle, but I'm not sure you can see it.  You might also not see the subtle shimmer the gold glimmer misting on the rectangle.  Or the triple stamped sentiment.  This card really stretched me, but I think I like it!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my cards!  I hope you've been inspired to join these fabulous challenges and to stretch your crafting limits today!  You can do it if I can, lol!  HUGS and happy stamping friends!

Wow and wow Mynnette, I LOVE both these cards. The first I like the subtle text behind the stamping and the second I love the splashes and the hand drawn banana frame. Thanks for joining us with your FAB card at ATSM, this is one of my favourites of your cards!

This is just gorgeous, Mynnette! I just wanted to let you know that I prayed for you today. I saw your name/profile pic and for some reason, the Lord laid your name on my heart and I prayed for you. I pray that you are doing well, drawing ever nearer to Him, and enjoying a blessed week.
Hope you will have time to join our challenge this week. It's always a blessing to have you share your amazing art with us.
Hugs,

These one layer cards are just wonderful, Mynnette! You make one layer seem so easy - it's not... At least not to me:) I really like the style of the first one - the text makes such an elegant background for your butterflies, and I like the colors and added glitter. As for your second one I love the effect of the splashes of colors!

Heather said...

That first one is super elegant! Love it! There's just something about text behind an image . . . Both are fabulous and thanks for playing with the Lollipop Ladies (again)!
