We're back on at the One Layer Wednesday challenge hosted this week by Susan at Simplicity. Susan has challenged us this week to:
1) use ONLY a sentiment stamp on your card...no other stamps or embellishments allowed!
2) use a NON-STANDARD size for your card
3) make at least two cards using the same stamp that vary something (color, type of ink, technique, placement of the stamp, size of card)
Well, I've made my cards 4.25 x 4.25 inches, just because I thought my sentiments weren't large enough to fill up a 5 x7 inch card (or look balanced). The sentiment I chose for this first card is stamped in SU Real Red and is a PTI sentiment.
Wasn't too crazy about it in the center of the card, so I decided to move it to the bottom right hand corner of the card. Much better. Although, if I'm totally honest, I think these cards need something else...a touch of bling, a small holly stamp...anything!
There....now don't you think it's better on the bottom corner? Then just for fun, I decided to try another of the stamps in the PTI set for this next card. I started it off in the bottom right corner...and I do like this...however, I still think it needs something to jazz it up a bit.
That's it for me today. It's been a busy day. I finally managed to get the tree up...not decorated...just up in the living room. Every year when we get it out, I say..."next year we need to get a smaller tree!" A nine foot tree is difficult to set up and difficult to decorate. I'm not nearly as comfortable climbing on a ladder as I was a few years ago. Of course, that might be because my hubby hovers and constantly says...be careful..don't fall!
Thanks for popping by....As always, your comments are welcomed and appreciated! Until next time...
