One-Layer Wednesday Challenge (OLW127) - Pinterest Inspiration

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

How many of you love Pinterest?  I don’t know about you, but I find myself “pinning” far more than anything else I do on Pinterest.  Please, tell me some of you feel the same?  So, this week I'm challenging you to use one of your own Pinterest boards as inspiration.  Let's put our Pinterest boards to good use!   Show us your inspiration.

For my inspiration, I choose my "Papertrey Love" board.  This is my inspiration card, and here is my card:

One trend I’ve seen lately is watercolor. I love watercolor! To me, it's subtle, even tranquil (I look for peace and quiet anywhere I can find it these days…lol).  More on that in another post.

Now, if you don't have a Pinterest account, what are you waiting for?  It's fun and it's free. It really is inspiring. I should warn you, it's also very time consuming!  No, I don't work for Pinterest, I promise!  I've provided a link to get started, if you're interested.  If you don't have/or don't want a Pinterest account, please don't let that stop you from playing along this week. Find your own inspiration from wherever you wish.

Finally, I have to show you this beautiful watercolor card I found, and it's creator is our very own, Karen Dunbrook!  Isn't this a beauty?

OLW 127 Guidelines:

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 inspired by one of your own Pinterest boards.  Please show us your inspiration and  remember to keep embellishments to a minimum!

3. Upload your card somewhere online and link 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.

One-Layer Wednesday 126 - Neglected Color

Monday, February 11, 2013

This weeks One-Layer Wednesday Challenge is hosted by Susan.  She's given us a great challenge;  use a "neglected color" in your ink collection.  This can be a color you really don't like, or maybe a color you've forgotten about.   Well, I didn't even have to think about this. I knew exactly which  color I was going to use.

For my card I used Autumn Rose, by Papertrey Ink.  Please... don't get me wrong, I adore Papertrey Ink. I've just not had good results with this color.  I'm sure it's just me!  You know, operator error.

So pull out some of those neglected inks and ...HAVE FUN! You may find a new favorite color.

Did you notice the handmade envelope?  There's a great tutorial on SplitcoastStampers.  You can make any size envelope you need, and it's a great way to use up some of that paper stash.

I forgot to mention, this card is 4x4 square.

Stamps: Verve
Ink: Autumn Rose-Papertrey Ink
Paper: Papertrey Ink (card base) Envelope: Paper Studio
