Up, Up and Away!

Back to blog normality to day after all the excitement of the last few days - with an earlier post than usual, as my daughter is in a swimming gala this evening so I won't be at my laptop this evening as usual. I've got a pair of cards to share with you today, both of which are one layer cards. I really struggle with one layer cards - with all the lovely cardstock, designer paper, ribbon and embellishments that Stampin' Up! offers, just to use one sheet of card is often impossible! Anyway, I challenged myself to come up with some one layer designs and so using my Spring Sampler set again - LOVE this set! - I came up with this:

I'm really quite pleased with the result - the clouds give the image lots of interest, even though it's one layer. If you look closely, you'll see that I also scored around the masked image to add depth and definition, allowing the sentiment to 'flow' over the top. The words are from a retired birthday hostess set, but were perfect for this card - they added movement and I think make it look as if the words are being carried on the wind with the balloon. Spurred on by this card, I then made a second one to the same design but using the kite stamp in the Spring Sampler set:

The scored line is more difficult to see on this one - photographing almost wholly white cards also presents something of a challenge, but you get the idea I'm sure. You could also use the Bitty Banners set for a wavy sentiment, although when I tried one I couldn't resist cutting it out and putting it on a dimensional - so no longer a one but two layer card!

Hope you like this pair of cards - I really like them and they spurred me on to consider other one layer options and not be put off by one layer cards in the future. I'm off to get ready for the gala; back tomorrow with more stamping loveliness, but until then - happy stampin'!
