One of the great things about stamping lies in its simplicity.
Take one layer cards as an example. All you need to do is stamp the images. I am sharing a few tips with you as you may benefit from my trials and errors over my years of stamping.
I am using "Look for the Miracles" stamp set as my example.
I only used the small flowers, vines and leaves images to convey a thoughtful design.
Where to start when you try to keep it one layer?
Ding---> start with a stamp that you love....
Tips on creating one layer:
~make sure your hands and fingers are clean: the unnecessary smudges are a nuisance. It helps to use a piece of paper to cover the card surface when stamping.
~plan out your design before stamping: stamp your design on a piece of scrap paper first (when possible). This will avoid wasting precious card stock.
~think about the beginning, the middle and the end: for this card, I planned out the invisible borders first. Then I stamped the flower and vines around. At the end, I stamped and fit the small images between spaces.
Hope today's post gives you some inspiration about One Layer.
