Joyful Stars Blog Hop: One Layer Cards


Welcome to Joyful Stars July 2014 Blog Hop! This is a blog hop from Close To My Heart Independent Consultants where we all wanna share with your the projects we created using Close To My Heart products. We are so glad that you are hoping with us today!

If you are here arrived from Nickie’s blog that you are on the right track 🙂 but if you are here first, please visit Joyce’s blog and Nickie’s blog to see what’s they have created for you.

This time I would like to share with you one layer card sets I made for my recent project for a women blogging conference, Declare Conference in August 2014. One layer card is a simple technique yet pretty way to create cards that you need in a short time. I have made 7 sets (5 cards a set) and still have to make 18 sets more!

My first card is I create the background with Frame Flair using Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. Using Topiary and Honey Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, I stamped the flowers that from one of the Hostess Rewards stamp set, Enjoy the Little Things, this stamp you can only get special with your hostess rewards from hosting a home gathering (click here for detail). And the sentiment is from Beautiful Friendship  that I stamped it with Gypsy Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad.

The next 3 cards I create them using Kraft Cardstock. I stamped the corner doily from Beautiful Friendship and embossed them with White Embossing Powder and heated them with my Craft Heater. The sentiments are from Beautiful FriendshipJoyful Birthday and The Happy Couple. I stamped them with Black from Basics Exclusive Inks Mini Pigment Pad.

The inside of the kraft card set I stamped one of the doily stamp from Beautiful Friendship with Cashmere Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad at the bottom corner White Daisy cardstock that I glued it inside as the place where people can write.

The last card set I would like to share I created the background by stamping one of the arrows from Flights of the Arrows on the White Daisy cards with Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. All the sentiments are from Banner Wishes set that stamped with Ruby Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad.
