The Paper Players

The Paper Players challenge is one layer cards. I really like to make them. Initially I found them impossible to make, but I have learned a lot from Heather Telford and just got better over time. 




Practice does help. I really like this card. My husband just shrugged his shoulders - it was too bland for him. But I find it quite expressive. I made it for a friend of mine, who had one of her good friends die and she emailed me today about it. So its kind of a sympathy card.

Materials: waterdrops - Ryn Tanaka stamps, sentiment - Hero Arts Leaf Print Cl395,

I think this card is absolutely stunning! I love the gradation of the focal rectangle and realism of the drops of water.

It's a wonderful thinking of you/sympathy card. :o)

(I used to find one layer cards nigh on impossible as well, but have found they're all I'm making lately.)

You certainly have turned into a OLC pro, Cornelia! That Heather is amazing and such a good teacher! I love your poignant sympathy card very much!! (Thank you for your sweet get well wishes! I'm taking it pretty easy. It hurts more than I thought it would, so no Playhouse cleaning yet!)

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
