One Layer Wednesday #157 (It’s All About The Sentiment)

Cheryl at A Paperie Journey is the host at One Layer Wednesday this week and has set us the challenge of making the sentiment the focal point on a card … so I did … look …

OLW 157

This is a thank you card destined for a couple, so I didn’t want it to be too girly … and it was really quick to make … well you’d expect it to be wouldn’t you?  The bit that wasn’t quick at all was all the practice I needed to get the Annabelle Stamps borders stamped without either big white gaps or big inky overlaps … I’d show you a photo of my scrap-mountain of attempts but there isn’t a lens wide enough on the camera to take it.  I need one of those stamp positioner thingies … any advice would be gratefully accepted.  The sentiment’s from PTI (my happy package finally made it here by way of Melbourne, Australia … such a direct route for the USPS to take to France … non?) and it’s been blinged with a few gems.

That’s it from me for the weekend … hope your’s has been a good one.  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight!  Anita 🙂

    Great job! I couldn’t make straight borders to save my life! This is a great one layer card! Love those colors together, and the tiny bits of bling – especially the one in the “y”. Love this girl!

    Anita, Thanks for joining us this week for the One-layer Wednesday Challenge. Your efforts were well worth it! Such fun colors and I love the sweet touch of bling.

    Fabulous thank you card Anita…so sweet and I love the bling! Our mail system in the US is just amazing, mailed a package to Kansas and it ended up in Hawaii! Love your card and would love to see your stack of boo boo’s, LOL

    Love this – that stamp actually adds texture to the card – I feel like if I touched it, it would be soft and fuzzy! Great colour choices, too!

    I agree with Ardyth – it looks very touchy-feely “tweedy”. Love the colour combo, and you did well to get the images lined up. It’s hard to do, but a positioner does make it much easier.

    OKAY….so you are saying that you did this without a stamp positioner thingy? WOW!!! Amazing! No wonder you had a heap of papers in the bin! I could not possibly stamp without my SU stamp-a-ma-jig (I think that is what it is called). I know that there are some pretty nifty do-dads out there that also do the job, but I’m happy with the easy-peasyness of the SU rig!

    Beautiful card – love the texture, love the colors, love the bling!

    WOW – I’m dazzled with your card – beautiful x 1,000 – as well as your technique! Even if you wound up with a scrap-mountain, the outcome is perfect! As for a stamp-positioner thingy that others have mentioned: apparently mine doesn’t work 🙂 I couldn’t accomplish this feat with it, and wouldn’t without it. Perhaps a ‘how to stamp’ class should be next on my ‘to do’ list! LOVE your card…heading back for a close up look!1


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it!
