Hi stampers! Nicole here and I am excited to share this fun one-layer card with you today. I have been loving the brand-new Summer Fun Stamp Set that was released last month, so I decided to take out the cute palm tree image from the set and create a one layer card.
This card is simple and quick yet is full of colors and fun! I used few of Distress Inks and Le Plume Markers for the main image. I prepared a masking sheet and cut out a circle in the upper center of the area, covered the whole front surface of the card with it so only the cutout circle part is visible. Then I took Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Salty Ocean, and Peacock Feathers to create a beach look. All you need to do is to blend those colors together with a blending tool!
After you lift up the masking sheet, you will see this focal point perfectly colored ready for our palm tree stamp. I decided to color this image with couple of Le Plume Markers – Dark Chocolate and Jungle Green – and huff on the stamp before stamping. Coloring the image with a marker creates some textures to make the image more alive. If you never tried it, I encourage you to give it a try!
For the sentiment, I took out the “hello” stamp from the Summer Fun Set. Joanna is awesome as always and provide a cut file that goes perfectly with the set. Instead of stamping the sentiment, I used my electric die-cutter and cut out the “hello” using the provided cut file. I wanted the “e” to be all filled, so I added that part later on. For some reason it looked more playful to me!
To dress up the card, I’ve added couple of enamel dots. Even when making an one-layer card, you can always add couple of embellishments to add a bit of dimensions.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card! Thank you so much for stopping by and I will be back with a new video tutorial in 2 weeks! Have an awesome day 🙂
