One-Layer Wednesday (OLW 122) ~ Hearts

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Happy New Year!  Before I jump into this weeks challenge, I'd love to hear what craft/hobby resolutions you made this year (stamp, scrapbook, etc.).  It's fun to share, beside who else wants to hear about your creative accomplishments, but your blog buddies?

I’ve made two this year.  First, my blog, it desperately needs attention and, second, I have scrapbook projects I need to complete.  As with any goal or resolution, you have to have a plan. I have to admit, the planning process took time, but I feel it was well worth it.

I look forward to hearing your resolutions.
Alright, now for this weeks challenge.  Create a card using hearts or a heart, whatever your heart desires!

For my card I used a new Hero Arts Stamp & Cut set (borrowed from a friend).  It's an Archiver's exclusive.  This set comes with four heart images and a matching die. Very sweet!

OLW 122 Rules:

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers of card stock allowed!
2. Make a card with hearts/heart. Please remember to keep embellishments to a minimum!
3. Upload your card somewhere online and link to it using the InLinkz button on the bottom of this post. If you link to your blog, please make sure the link goes to the individual post, not to your blog's home page.
4.HAVE FUN! That's really what it's all about.

Stamps: Hero Arts & Papertrey, Ink (sentiment), Paper: Stampin'Up Whisper White, Ink: Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy & Memento Tuxedo Black, Accessories: Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Hero Arts Diecut

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Hi Cheryl! Cute card! Like the double hearts. All this time I've looked at and participated in the OLW challenges, I thought you could not use die cuts because that would make your card more than one paper layer. I was wrong? That is why I haven't played in lots of the challenges because the cards I made ended up having a die cut. Drats. Will you please let me know? THANK YOU! :)

  2. I LOVE this card-what a great idea-you have die cut this and the heart is stamped inside right?
    I want to this year learn a new technique each month!

  3. I love cute and simple cards like this! I am resolving to craft staff appreciation notes/goodies every month thru June for my kids' middle school, to create more with MDS, and to participate in more challenges to keep my creativity flowing! Have a wonderful day.



  4. Adorably clean and fun card, Cheryl!

    I don't really have any resolutions, crafty or otherwise. My word for the year is Intentional, though, and I definitely want to be more intentional in my stamping, especially as far as my Operation Write Home cards go.

  5. Really cute!! I love the look of the cutout.

  6. Fabulous cas card, love the heart.

  7. Super sweet, Shell - the perfect Valentine's card! xoxo

  8. Adorable card Cheryl! I have been having fun creating some Valentine's Day cards and hope to get them posted soon.

  9. Very sweet card, Cheryl, and a fun timely challenge! I love peephole cuts like that and this is so cute with your patterned heart peeking through!! Hugs! xxoo Darnell
