Lighting The Way

Good Afternoon!

Not a whole lot going on around here.  We've had quite a bit of rain lately even this morning, but now the sun is out and the day looks bright!  Hopefully it will be a gardening kind of weekend!  :)

Here's today's little creation:

One of those NO layer cards which freaks me out!  I love my layers, the more the better!  I used a Hero Arts stamp set, Decorative Lamps.  I made a small frame (stencil) out of some thick card stock and sponged More Mustard ink all over the opening on the base card stock.  Once dried I stamped the 3 different lamps on top.  I covered the stamped images and then using an old toothbrush dipped in yellow craft paint I flicked specks all over the front of the card.  Colored some adhesive pearls with a Copic Marker and decorated the lamps.  Simple.....thin.....done.  :)

This card will be entered into the following Challenges:

Mod Squad Blog, One Layer Wonder

CASual Fridays  Three Thirds

Simon Says Wednesday  Anything Goes

CASology  Electric

At least when mailing this card I won't need extra postage!  lol

Thanks again for stopping by!  And remember don't throw away your old toothbrushes!  ;)



  1. Very nice! I like your inked section that grounds your images.

  2. Hi Donna! this is super cute, I luv how you added the beads on the lamp post. So glad you played along with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

    sparkle & shine *~*

  3. This is really cute! Love the lamps displayed that way and the colors are striking!

  4. Super-duper cute!! Think I need the old guy to take me to the craft store for some craft paint so I can try the tooth brush flicky-thingy technique. Hope you have a great week end in the garden.

  5. This is fun - classic shaped lamps, but jazzed up with some pearls - very clever! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

  6. I'm back to thank you for also joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  7. Super cute card with all those cool lamps. Neat one layer card idea!

  8. Wow, I love this cool.

  9. You rocked this challenge! LOVE how you created the bg! Thanks so much for playing along in the Mod Squad Challenge this week!

  10. Oh wow, how clever to make a frame with the stencil and ink. You totally GOT this challenge with that, you clever, clever girl. Love you cute stamp too, and that touch of pearl here and there just sets everything off. So cute!!!

  11. Whoops, I missed this one. A really neat idea for a no layer card. I will have to remember the mask frame. Love those pearls, and I still need to try the toothbrush thing.

  12. Great job on the 1 layer card. The ink panel looks fantastic with the black lamps!

    Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
