Cardmaking

One layer card

Happy Thursday crafty people!  I hope you are having a great week.  It’s a gorgeous sunny day here in Scotland and we have a four day weekend to look forward to, what more could we ask for?

Today I’m sharing a one layer card, which is not something I do very often…. like almost never!  I used a record stamp from an old magazine freebie set and I used memento black ink with clear embossing powder to give it a glossy look like a record.  Then I used some washi tape to create a wide stripe.  I had to make my masking wider using two lengths of tape as my first attempt I went over the edge and made a mess!

Then I used my lovely new make up brushes to blend some distress oxide inks over this panel (from the bottom I used blueprint sketch, salty ocean, cracked pistachio and twisted citron).  I added a few splashes of water to lift the colour and then removed the tape.  I finished off by colouring the centres of the records with the matching colours before stamping “Happy birthday”.

I hope that you like my simple one layer card.  I think I don’t tend to make these as I’m quite messy and I end up wasting card blanks (as I did in this case!) but maybe I should work on being a little more precise and try out a few more one layer designs.

Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope you will say hi in the comments.  Have a fab evening whatever you are up to.

Happy Spring

Hi crafty people, hope you are having a fab Saturday!  I’m sharing a quick card I made this week for a few challenges.

I downloaded some digital papers recently from a lovely Etsy shop (Erin Bradley Designs ) recently including these from the yellow and grey medley.  I paired the papers up with some yellow and grey card in my stash and added some stamps from a magazine last year.
