One Layer Wednesday 50, WOW!

Simplicity challenge number 50 today is all about our old stamps. Wide spread influence for this one, lots of scope to hang myself LOL..........

OLW50 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half. No other layers allowed.

2. Pull out an old stamp that hasn't seen ink in a while, and make a thank you card with it! Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.

3. Post your card somewhere on the internet and link to it using the InLinkz button on the sidebar of Simplicity.

4. Most important rule of all: HAVE FUN!


Well I did have fun but you should see the mess I made, the rooms totally upside down, that was trying to find the right stamp, after all that I hope it's the right one? mmm bit of a disembodied head thing going on Oh dear! :0)


Congratulations to Susan and Jennifer you made  it to 50 and I've enjoyed it so much, Thank you very much,  great thoughtful challenges each and every one. I joined in for the first time back on number 11 here is my card I started with a funny card, it made me laugh anyway!!


Stamps used
Sweet Grass stamp from here
Sentiment stamp from Inkadinkadoo, Brenda Walton, Hearts and Love
Coloured with Copics


Work on the house progresses well and my help is not required. He!he!he! never let that stop me before. I jest.......... I wouldn't interfere but it sounds funny, so I like saying it!

Have fun everyone, hope that you have a wonderful holiday weekend, :0) xxx

There's several of us that have been playing for a while. I think we've all learned a lot about stamping and seen some beautiful card during all this time too! I think the lady's head looks like she's peeking in the door.....great card!

Brilliant (as usual).

I really like it as it is, but if you're not sure about the disembodiment . . . attach a ribbon at the edge! (I realise you can't do that for your submission as it'd be a 2nd layer!) Just tryin' to help!

Hugs, Sandra

Lynne said...

I love this. Great image and fabulous sentiment. On further inspection though it does look as if she`s thanking her love for chopping her head off ROFL. Sorry!

WOW!.. i am soo LOVING your one layer cards!.. love the stamps and colouring! :D

Susie said...

Awesome card. I love the image you used.

Susan Allan said...

I love what you have made...simple is lovely to look at but hard to achieve; I always find.
I like the stamp you have used and isn't it crazy how many stamps we have got... and yet still buy more. It is good to dig out some old ones, brushing all the dust off first.

Have fun in this lovely weather.
