Enjoy The Moment One Layer Autumnal Card

by Joanne James23. October 2021 09:00

Hurrah, it's the weekend! Anyone else feeling like that today? Today I'm sharing a super simple, one layer card for the following challenges:

   May be an image of text that says "#109 COLOUR Crushed Curry SPIRATION CHALLENGES Pool Party Cinnamon Cider Early Espresso"

Never one to shy away from the challenge of a one/no layer card, I decided to pair my entry for the autumnal one-layer theme over at Less Is More with the lovely colours over at Colour INKspiration. I haven't played along there for a while but I love their colour combo of browns with an aqua blue and warm yellow. I decided to make another card with my 'Enjoy The Moment' stampset that I used earlier this week - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I stamped a row of circles in alternating challenge colours using the 'Textures and Frames' stamp set from the recent Sale-A-Bration promotion, and stamped over this with a variety of seed pods and seed heads from the 'Enjoy The Moment' stamp set in Early Espresso, masking the edges so that they didn't go outside of the background circles. I added some scored lines above and below my stamped images for added definition, then finished with my sentiment below:


Layering stamped images is a great way to add colour and create depth without the need for layers and these seed heads are so perfect for an autumnal card. This card really is #SimpleStamping at its best - nothing more than stamps, ink and paper. What are you going to stamp today? Do leave me a comment below - I'd love to know.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day; I am off to the hockey pitch for some spectating so will be wrapping up warm against the chillier temperatures we've been experiencing the last few days; I think it may be time for the big coat!! I'll be back tomorrow with my card for out new challenge over at The Paper Players. Until then, happy stampin'!

AHA!  It was YOUR fault that I had to buy Enjoy the Moment during the one-day sale Smile  I knew I had seen a card very recently that made me want the stamp set but I couldn't remember whose blog it was.  Thank you for the inspiration!

You should Deborah! I haven't used it as much as I'd like but have lots of ideas for it! Did you see the one I did last week here: blog.thecraftyowl.co.uk/.../Enjoy-The-Moment-Note-Card. Funny how a walk in the park had me reaching for this set and creating two cards in one week with it!

Beautiful card ! Love the circles in different colours to frame the images. Subtle dimension too with the embossed lines. Fabulous take on our challenge. Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at Less is More.
