One Layer Cards with Altenew

Hey folks!

I'm back to share some quick and easy one layer-ish cards with you all! These cards are so simple folks, I made five in no time.

Altenew is one of my favorite companies. They have some of the BEST flower stamps on the market. I gotta be honest, as much as I love the idea behind layering stamp sets, I can never seem to use them as a layering set and be happy. No worries though.



For my cards today, I used the Bold Blossom Stamp Set and Vintage Tea Cup Stamp Set by Altenew. The Bold Blossom Set is a layering set. Since I can't seem to get the results I want with the intended purposes of the stamp set, I always use the outline and maybe stamp one of the middle layers and call it a day.

Using the MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped all of my image on a Neenah White Card Stock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. To mask off the images, I made masks using Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper.



My coloring of choice for these bad boys were Copic's (you can see my color choices below). Watercoloring with something like Zig Clean Color Real Brush or Kuretaki Gansai Tambi would be fab as well folks. Or....these stamped on Kraft Cardstock (Neenah Desert Storm is good!) and colored with colored pencils would also be a great choice.

It's hard to see in the pic, but I used Versamark Ink and stamped the steam above the cups. Then went over the lines of the steam and the highlights on the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella.


For the squiggly lines behind the flowers and cups, I used one of the dies from the new Valentine Border Lawn Cuts by Lawn Fawn. Nothing tricky there peeps, I simply placed the die where I wanted it on the panel and traced along the edge with a Copic Multiliner.

I decided that there was enough going on so I skipped the embellies, but maybe a few Crystal Clear Sequins by Pretty Pink Posh or Moonbeams Sequins from Kennedy Grace Creations would be groovy.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Thanks so much for stopping in to see me today and as always I really hope you enjoyed my cards!

Until next time!

  1. Love these creations and so very clever how you have done them. Always have to look twice to see if this is really one layer. So beautiful

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a …

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
