Today's challenge at Mark's Finest Papers is a "One" Layer card. May I just say that this was a
real challenge for me. I don't think since I started making cards that I ever did a one layer. I am not even sure if I did it right...lol But hey, I gave it my best shot. Please join us in the challenge as I would love to visit and get some pointers and a lesson on how to make a one layer card.
What you see here is this awesome paper from Mark's Finest Papers Neutrals Premium Paper Combo that you can find here. It is the 100lb. craft and I embossed it with my cuttlebug pumpkin folder. The leaf image and the sentiment are from Mark's Finest Papers Autumn Glory stamp set here. I ran some tea dye distress ink around the edge of the card. I also got two sided tape at a stamping convention I went to recently just for the purpose of glittering like you see here. I learned some cool things at this convention. I particularly loved the glittered images on acetate they were demonstrating and selling . Holy smokes that was awesome....and you know me with my glitter.
So anyway, I stamped my leaves with some versafine. Then I sponged on Ranger distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, and Fired Brick. Yes, I am not only a punch and die cut junkie, but I am addicted to distress inks. I am hopeless with my "stuff". My husband enables me too. He told me to buy whatever I wanted at the convention. Is he crazy. I heard a story where one lady spent $5,000....lol Not at the convention I was at-but I did know some ladies that spent at least $500. I think I spent $80 and that included lunch and dinner......lol I try to pace myself between credit card bills....lol But, I did take 8 classes but I paid for those back in the summer. I really loved the acrylic albums we made and the mixed media one made with canvas. The classes were only about 1hr and 30 minutes so my projects are not yet fully complete for me to post. But it was fun.
Well that's it for today. Hope you have a great weekend. I will be playing in my craft room in-between batches of Pumpkin Butter that I am making and baking English Muffin Bread. I am making the Pumpkin Butter in my crock-pot and it smells awesome in the house. It will cook overnight and I will can it in the morning. It is suppose to be cool this weekend. I hope the weather man is right as it was 99 degrees yesterday and 96 today. To hot to can!!!!
