OLW 104

I'm playing along with One-Layer Wednesday 104 today.  We're asked to make a one-layer card that expresses gratitude.

My entry uses a cheap Studio112 stamp.  I really love the images on this grid stamp and have found that it stamps wonderfully with chalk inks.  I used VersaMagic pumpkin spice, jumbo java, eggplant, and .  Sentiment is from PTI lovely layers.



I first stamped the card on scrap cardstock to experiment  with inks.  It stamped so well I decided to cut it down and use it for a card, too.  I like to experiment with different layouts and I thought two were worth posting.  The sentiment strip is just a narrow strip of cardstock that I stuck straight down into my corner rounder. 



Thanks for visiting.

Awesome cards, Ann. I have similar stamps that I've never stamped in fall colors before, but I will now. I just love how the white grid pops against the green background - and how you've offset the sentiment on the thank you card. Very CASEable! Thank YOU!!

WOW! This stamp really packs a punch! My fave is the final one with the green card base and the offset sentiment!

Ann, I love both versions of your cards! I really love the one-layer white version, but both are rich and classy!

Your cards are always gorgeous Ann! These are both lovely but the one layer design really stands out for me. The colours work beautifully together too.
