Single Layer Cards

Hello everyone and welcome to another fun challenge!  

As much as I love clean and simple cards, my cards always have layers.  Always!  Even if it's just ONE layer.  I think it's a safety net for me.  I never tend to stamp directly onto the actual card base because it never fails that I mess up.  And a stamped image with a border backing layer will always spiffy a card up.  So this challenge really made me stretch.

The challenge is to create a SINGLE LAYER CARD!  No layers, no backing (frame) layer, nothing but the actual card base.  You can add embellishments, ribbons, brads or washi tape, etc.  It does not have to be a card, a tag is perfectly ok.

And folks, I had a blast and am absolutely in love with my SINGLE LAYER CARD!  
But first, let's welcome our September Step-Sisters and check out their wonderful creations:

Fancy Fold

Hello everyone! Terri here and I can't believe it is my turn to host the Sisterhood of Crafters challenge once again. The sisters are challenging you to make a card with a FANCY FOLD (gate fold, tri-fold, step, etc.) I seldom make fancy fold cards, so this helped me to think outside the box. Check out the projects from all my "sistahs", then put on those thinking caps and start creating.

Again this challenge, Step Sister Annemaritta is offering up a prize to one lucky winner!  
How sweet & generous is that!!!!

  Thanks so much Annemaritta!  And Good Luck Everyone!

Die-Cuts and/or Punches

Good morning fellow crafters.  Lisa B. here and I am happy to be sponsoring this challenge. We are asking you to use die-cuts and/or punches on your project.  There are some awesome metal dies out there that can really help out and add some amazing accents to your project.  One thing I love about die-cuts and punches are they are a wonderful way to use up smaller pieces of papers or scraps.  Plus there are some amazing videos out there on how to use punches in different ways. I personally have a stash of both of them and they really come in handy.

I would also like to take a moment to thank our wonderful July Step-Sisters Ruth from Weirdcat Cards 'n' Stuff and  Leah Schaeffer.  They have made some beautiful and stunning projects for you all.  If you are interested in being a Step-Sister just place SS after your name on your challenge entry.  We would love to have you!  The information can be found at the top of our blog.

I had lots of fun with this challenge.  Personally I think using die cuts or punches are a perfect way to use up your scraps.  I could of kept making projects, it made me feel great using up my scrap papers.  This whole projects was made using leftovers which made my heart skip a beat! lol

The papers are from Kate & Co by Mind's Eye.  The fact that they were double sided made it easy. I included a picture of the punches that I used to make my project.  I will have all my info on my blog.






So with that said let's see what our Sisters and Step-Sistahs have cooked up for you.
