Projects 89-90 of 365: Pumpkin Thank You’s September 22, 2010

A few days ago I stumbled across another blogger with a great Stampin’ Up! blog.  Her blog is Odden Designs (and while I didn’t copy the web address to link :( I do know it shows up right away if you google Odden Designs.  Well, she had these really cute, simple 3×3 thank you cards that I just loved.  So I had to make the 3×3 pumpkin card for myself (completely copied from her card) and then I made a simple modification by adding another, different shaped pumpkin and made it into a 4×4 card. So quick and simple that it will be hard for you to resist making these cards for yourself too :)

Project 33 of 365: One Layer Wonder June 17, 2010

Ok….One more card….I told you I had a lot of projects for you today.  I have been so busy crafting, but not so busy about posting :)

This last post I have for you today is pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself.  Split Coast Stampers has many weekly challenges, one of them is the Technique Lovers Challenge.  The challenge is to create projects using whichever technique they list on Sunday.  This week’s challenge was to complete a One Layer Card.  I almost did not participate in this challenge.  Some of you might be thinking easy, piece of cake, but not me.  I was thinking how the heck could I possibly make something cool with just 1 piece of paper!!  I have NEVER done a one layer card.  In fact, I often make those darn cards that won’t even fit into an envelope. LOL!!  So this was truly a challenge for me.

Late last night it finally clicked for me.  I had seen a Michelle Zindorf card (I think she might just be my stamping hero!) where I would have sworn this card had 4 layers, but it only had two.  So I cased that card, and even reduced it an additional layer so that it truly was a one layer card, and in my opinion a One Layer Wonder.

What would I have done if I had not found Michelle Zinforf’s inspiring blog?  She has opened up a whole new world of stamping for me.  She is actually a watercolor artist, who has taken her watercolor skills, and her fabulous understanding of color and dimension and has transformed them into a way of helping us crafters feel a bit more artisitc.  Visit her blog and see a tutorial for her version of this card HERE.
