The best challenges are the ones that really challenge us – and although one of the simplest, the ‘back to basics’ of our Just Add One Layer challenge this week for Just Add Ink will certainly make you look at your supplies in a totally different way!
My favourite way to add dimension when I am working with only a card base is to using masking. This creates definition and the appearance of layers even though there’s not!
To create this fun card perfect for a sports mad birthday buddy or difficult to craft for teen, I first cut a circle out of copy paper and used repositionable tape to hold it in place on the card front.
Then, using the ball stamps in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Blueberry Bushel and Memento ink, I stamped the images all over the card base.
Before I removed the copy paper circle, I drew around the edge with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker and then carefully removed the copy paper circle, leaving me with a white space to stamp my sentiment in Garden Green.
And there we have it, a quick & easy card for the sports fan celebrating a birthday.
Love the stamp set and need this in your collection? It’s called For the Win and is in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. There’s also a golf stamp which will coordinate perfectly with the new golf suite being released in the 2020 Jan – June catalogue.
Think you can avoid the temptation of adding layers and want to try out one layer challenge, we’d love to see your creations in our gallery. Click here to visit the Just Add Ink blog where you can share your card and see the other one layer creations from the design team.
Have a great weekend,
