I’m having a wee go at the Less is More blog challenge – It’s Week 167 One Layer… click here to go to the challenge


So I have to create a one layer card, and.. incorporate  shadow stamping :)… this was a fun challenge as I had learn how to shadow stamp, my first attempt was this card I made last night, but couldn’t use it for the challenge because it wasn’t one layer 😉

So here’s my take on the challenge that I created this morning..

One Layer Card : Amazeballs

Hi Everyone!

I’m back from my summer hol’s and boy did they whiz past fast!

When I arrived back home, there was a package waiting for me from my friend Helen, who also happens to be my stampin up demo.    I had placed an order for the new release inks and cardstock “in colours” before I left.    These new colours are “amazeballs” and I tried them out today, making a one layer card and my new inks 🙂



supplies used :-

  • Stampin Up Inks : Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantalope & Strawberry Slush
  • White heavyweight cardstock
  • Casual Fridays Stamp Set : Amazeballs
  • Clearly Besotted Stamp Set : Many thanks
