New Ning group

There is a new Ning group for those of you who love to make crafts with paper! It is called Lady Annes Paper Crafts. As I said, brand new, so I thought I would join and give it a trial run by entering the first challenge. This challenge is to make a card with ONE layer (so no adding paper layers) and ONE embellishment. A little tricky at first, especially as I am so used to putting layer upon layer and adding a few embellishments. But, nothing is impossibe and here's my card!

I used the Dandelion image from Digistamps4Joy, changed the black lines to sepia on the computer, then copied the image 4 times, and printed these onto white cardstock. The next thing I did was to use 3 different colours of spritzes and I sprayed these around the image, and a quick squirt over the image. I then stamped the words I Love You (an old rubber stamp I had in my stash) and embossed this with gold. Still only 1 layer!! Then I added my embellishment - a chipboard fairy that I glittered up with gold glitter. This is still ONE embellishment, so no rules broken here! Finally I chalked the edge and stippled around the sentiment. So a simple card, yet quite a bit of work, and it required concentration to NOT add layers or more embellishments.


  1. Just gorgeous. Loving the colours and design. Would never have thought that one layer could look so wonderful. Hugs Desíre Digistamps4Joy DT Member Doing Life Tammys Scrapin Corner DT Member
