More One Layer Cards...

Are you sick of them yet???  I am not!  This month's A muse Lounge Challenge is called "Taking off some Layers"  Isn't Jennie so clever with words?!  I have been making OLCs like crazy and have 3 to show you!

This first one is so simple, but I had to hug myself after thinking of the idea.  I was playing around with the new Vintage set from A muse and was using the sentiment "You make me smile" for another card.  Being a clear stamp, you can bend it...and it goes perfectly into the shape of a smile!  I tried various ideas for the eyes, the most scary looking being A muse's Sun stamp...it was the face of someone possessed!!  In the end, I settled for blue buttons - more friendly!!  I pierced a circle using a nestie as a circle template.  Love those nesties!!


Paper:  SU very vanilla
Stamps:  A muse
Ink:  palette hybrid noir
Accessories:  SEI buttons, circle nestibility, SU linen thread, paper piercer, corner chomper

The second and third cards use the same layout and some of the newly released stamps from A muse - gorgeous, eh?  Pretty self explanatory to make...


Paper:  A muse (wheat)
Ink:  Palette hybrid moulin rouge, charcoal & noir
Stamps:  A muse (Marigold, gossamer wings, many thanks)
Accessories:  Making Memories brad, paper piercer


Paper:  A muse
Ink:  SU (cool caribbean, not quite navy, certainly celery, always artichoke)
Stamps:  A muse (wild rose branch, hello, gossamer wings)
Accessories:  none!
Technique:  rock & roll

Hope you enjoy my trio of OLCs...tomorrow is Susan's One Layer Wednesday...why stop making these???

I scrolled down through your first page and love all the one layer cards you've been doing. So simple -- and easy to mail! I've gone all froo-froo lately and need to get back to my clean and simple roots, I think. Thanks for the inspiration! (Now we'll see if I can actually do it!)
