One layer card challenge

Sunday, April 25, 2010
My craft table is in a mess and when I saw Kristina's One layer card challenge, I knew it was gonna be a challenge because you have to bear in mind that this is a 'One-layer' card project. No ribbons, no buttons, no nothing. The stamp set that I used for this card is Something Sweet from SU!. Some faux stitching, glitter powder and stamping. That's about it.

All my materials are from SU! I'll update all the details soon. Some of the hearts are brighter than others because I added clear craft lacquer to create crystal effect (from SU!). I'll try to take some close-up shots of them and upload soon.

Cardstock: Kraft (Stampin Up)
Stamp: Something Sweet (Stampin Up)
Ink: Chalk Ink In Latte (Hero Arts), Real Red Marker (Stampin Up)
Miscellaneous: Mat pack and paper piercer (Stampin’ Up!), Clear Craft Lacquer (Stampin Up)

Besides that, I also participated in Kristina's Finally Friday- The 5 Items on My Desk Challenge of using 5 items that are within reach (on my craft table). I thought, O-hoo, I'm so gonna participate in this too! This definitely was a challenge and it certainly puts your creativity to the test. So, here's what I came up with:

The five items that I used were: a sentiment that I created few weeks ago and never used, ribbon, small piece of green cardstock and a craft cardstock with pattern paper on.

Enjoy! :)
