Finally, I have had a wee bit of time and my laptop is back in the house AND working.  Thank heavens!

Today's first card is for the Challenge at Stamp TV, Let's Keep It Simple Please and for the Challenge at Simon Says Monday, Rock The Technique.

This is about as simple as I can get, NO Layers!  I Used the Masking and Sponging Techniques.  Taking Spellbinders Large Labels Die, I centered the die onto the card stock and then using blue painter's tape (this stuff is AWESOME!) I held it in place so I could sponge a pretty yellow ink all over the inside of the Die.  Then I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and I stamped the pumpkin image twice, once directly onto the yellow sponged card stock and once on a scrap piece of paper, then I cut that out and made a mask covering my pumpkins while I stamped the wheat image twice.  I then stamped the sentiment and colored my pumpkins with Copic Markers.  The stamp set is from Gina K Designs, of my most favorite fall stamp sets!
It feels so good to be back here again, and now I also get to visit your Blogs too, which I so dearly missed!
Thanks for returning I really appreciate you stopping by!


  1. This is lovely! The colors are so warm and the sponged background.

  2. Happy to have you back, I missed you. This card is sooo beautifully simple with a warm comfy feel.

  3. Beautiful card design and I love the masking of the pumpkins so the leafy branches showed like they were behind them.

  4. Such a gorgeous CAS card! love the pumpkins! Welcome back sweet pea! Missed you! Have a Blessed day! XO

  5. I think I would have a heart attack if someone told me to make a card with no layers, but you totally nailed it! I'm so impressed at how much depth you created without layers. You've done some very clever techniques here and the result is striking. Love those bold colors against the more subtle patterns in the background. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
