One Layer Wednesday

Hi friends!
I've been working with one particular card for several days now... I've thrown 5 versions to trash already and today when I came from work and looked at the mess in my craft space my inspiration was zero or maybe -5. Anyways, then I saw the challenge at One Layer Wednesday, it's here in Heather's wonderful blog. I think this might be my first time entering this challenge but I'm very familiar to it, I try to visit OLW blogs weekly nowadays and know what the ladies there are working with. :) This time there's a recipe: one ink color, one image, one sentiment. I started to go through my stamps and yayy, fun was back! These are maybe nothing that wouldn't have been seen before but I had a great time. Now I can clean the table and start again with that monster card I have on my list.... Maybe not before tomorrow. :)

First, a simple wedding invitation. The color is sort of plum/burgundy, I thought that could easily be someone's theme color for wedding. Mine was lime! The sentiment is a bit non-CAS but it was the only one I had that fit.

Vintage feeling, kraft card, brown ink. I love English language for the ability for these kind of sayings... Finnish can't be played with like that!

Happy yellow for new baby! Could work for both sexes I think.

Black and white for last: classic color combo for this chick lady in her classical outfit. The stamping came out really heavily on the bottom of her dress but it was a good accident -gives her great curves!

That's all for me now. I had a lot of fun with these, I hope you enjoyed my cards!


  1. you are a CAS queen now my friend! All adorable cards and I have to say I just love the Kraft card best-yes the pun is very English but the image gives it a vintage feel which is perfect on kraft-might have to re-do my typewriter card but make it one layer! x

  2. These are gorgeous - I'm thinking I'll ONLY make one-one-one cards from now on - the results are really amazing and a completely new way (for me) to think about CAS!

  3. These cards are so classy and clever. There is something about single colour designs which is very visually appealing.
