One Layer Christmas Card

I was thrilled when I clicked on the Stamping Sensations Challenge blog at the end of last week and found out that I had won the October Challenge. For this months challenge they are asking for One Layer Christmas Cards.This is a challenge for me as in all of my years card making, I don't think I have ever made a one layer card. Until now that is. I've used a 6x6 white card blank, a piece of masking tape across the middle, Tim Holtz snowflake stamps and Distress oxides. I used a technique that Tim showed us a his recent workshop at Art From The Heart, which was to stamp with the Oxides and then quickly blend with a blending tool. The sentiment was from a set by Sheena Douglas.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.



  1. That is really beautiful, I love the soft focus look of the blended snowflakes, such a great contrast to the clear, sharp sentiment. Congratulations on your win

  2. Some of us found it a challenge as well Sue me included, but I guess that's what it's all about and I really love your colour palette. Many thanks for making a special card for our Stamping Sensations challenge this month.
