One Layer Fall Cards 5 Ways with Pretty Pink Posh. Video (Blog Hop + Giveaway)

Hello friends! One layer cards have never been easy for me, but today I have not 1, not 2, but 5 ideas to share showcasing easy to make one layer mail-friendly handmade projects using stamps and several coloring mediums.

These projects don’t require a ton of supplies and the best part is – they are mail friendly, so you can pop them in the mail to your family or friends in no time and without having to spend additional on postage.

CARD DETAILS – REPEAT CORNER PATTERN

My card #1 features repeat corner pattern stamping. For this I created a grouping of images from the Autumn Wreath stamp set that take up just a quarter of the card. I stamped them in two opposite corners using my stamp platform, made slight alternations and stamped in the remaining 2 corners. I also reserved some space in the center for a sentiment from the Simple Sayings: Kind stamp set.

I did my stamping on kraft paper using Simon’s Fog ink and colored images using my favorite Polychromos colored pencils. Sentiment was stamped using Hero Arts Cup o’ Joe ink. I also used a white pen and added white dot and line details to the background.

CARD DETAILS – RADIATING CENTER PATTERN

To create this card I first stamped a sentiment in Cup o’ Joe ink in the center of the panel. Next, I used 3 leaf images from the Autumn Wreath stamp set and stamped them repeatedly radiating from the center to the edge (and going outside the edge) of the card base.

I used my Copic markers in the following colors to color the leaves:

  • YR07, YR04, Y17
  • YR18, YR15, Y15
  • E79, E37, E33, YR04

I also heat embossed the sentiment in Gold embossing powder over the original message for a drop shadow look.

CARD DETAILS – STRETCHING STAMPS

One of the greatest features of clear stamps is their ability to be stretched. Here I used a circle wreath and stretched it into an oval to be a better fir for my rectangular card.

I stamped this image and sentiment in Hero Arts Hybrid Caramel ink, which is alcohol-marker friendly, and colored my wreath with Copic markers. Copics can be used on various papers as long as they aren’t too dark.

Here I used the following colors for my coloring:

  • YR18, YR15, Y15
  • R89, R27, R24
  • YG67, YG17, YG03
  • E79, E37 and E33

I also used a Y612 alcohol marker from Altenew to add dots to my wreath and fill it in. The reason I used this marker from Altenew and not my Copic markers is because it has a bullet nib, a hard nib that works really well for adding tiny dots. My Copic markers don’t have a nib like that so I keep my Altenew markers by my side to be able to add these fun details. You can replace your Copic nibs and install a bullet nib like this if you like, I prefer having the original nibs in my markers.

CARD DETAILS – MASKED OFF EDGES

For my next one layer card idea I masked off about 1/4″ off the edge of the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ panel and next stamped a fun pumpkin pattern using Pumpkin Patch Critters stamp set. I used my mini MISTI to help me do this.

I did quick Copic marker coloring using the same marker colors I mentioned previously. I also added shading under the pumpkins using W3 and W1 markers.

CARD DETAILS – MASKED SCENE

My last project for today, a bonus card, features a simple one-layer masked scene. I used masking paper to create masks for several images, next arranged them into a scene and stamped images one by one using masks and alcohol marker friendly ink.

I once again added shading under the images using W3 and W1 markers and called this card done!
