Paper Players 142

DSCF4297
Happy Sunday, peeps!  Are you ready for another Paper Players challenge?  That stampin’ maven Jaydee is our hostess today and she has an ultra-easy clean and simple challenge for us today:
Yep---a ONE-LAYER card!  Ooooh, sometimes that is not as easy as it seems, is it?  So it really IS a challenge!  For my card, I chose to make a birthday card using Easy Events stamped directly on Pink PIrouette:
PP142-LeAnne
This is not a full card, it’s note-card size; I used my Simply Scored to score a little rectangle in which I stamped my image using my trusty Stamp-a-ma-Jig!  To give that rectangle a little more depth, I ran a very faint line of color with an Aquapainter on the inside of the scored line.  I really like the dimension it adds!   I used my blender pen and some ink to color in the image, then added a cherry from the Itty Bitties set.  I used Dazzling Diamonds and Dazzling Details for my sparkle:

This looks good enough to eat!  SO…..how will you create your one-layer card?  Can’t wait to see what you conjure up!  Check out the others’ samples at the Paper Players blog, too!

This weekend was chilly, to say the least….not like a couple of weeks ago, when we were playing barefooted in the sandbox:

  1. Oh you Rocked the one layer card! I am so not able to do it.
    Wow, I am so jealous that Cassidy can be outside barefoot. The Okie in me longs to be barefoot outside.

  3. I totally love this card!!! I'm going to try that technique TODAY. It's just gorgeous and so clever to add dimension like that on a one layer card. Brilliant! Weather is much better here today and I hope to see all the snow gone by the end of the day. ~chris

  11. Yummy.... seriously, that cupcake looks as though it would go wonderfully with a cup of coffee! I love that you highlighted the focal image with scoring. The sparkly cherry and frosting is fabulous. Adding depth around the scored border was a genius idea! Thank you for rocking my challenge

    PS. Is it me, or is Cassidy getting even cuter as she gets older :-)

  13. LeAnne, this is a study in how to do a one-layer card. I stand in awe of how much dimension and interest you added with the scored lines, the sparkle and stamping on PINK! All fabulous ideas that add up to one adorable card!
