Hey crafty people, it’s Tasha with your weekly dose of Saturday Inspiration, and today I’m wondering whether you ever feel crafty burnout? I do, and today I’m taking it right back to basics with a super simple, truly one layer card.
Often when I make a one layer card, I create my design onto a card panel then attach that to a card base, but this time I’m going truly one layer by stamping right onto a Neenah 110lb Card base.
Stamping A Design…
I used the Magical Sentiments stamp set from Trinity Stamps, and stamped out the sentiment in two parts; I first stamped ‘magic’ then added the rest either side afterwards. This allowed me to get the words as close together as I wanted, so that it naturally looks like one whole sentiment, rather than disjointed, single words stamped near each other.
Next I added the broom and Golden Snitch images from the Magical Wizards stamp set.
Adding Little Details…
I coloured these in with my Copic Markers;
Broom E15, E25, E59 & E79
Golden Snitch Y17, Y08
Wing Shading W1 & W3.
For a little further interest, I added a double lined border, inspired by one of Rachel’s recent creations (check that out HERE.)
Inside I stamped Hedwig carrying a letter, with some Magical stars around him.
Clean, simple and uber easy because that’s what I felt I needed, and you guys, that really is ok.
So please don’t feel like your every creation has to be a masterpiece, don’t play a game of one up-manship against yourself and your past creations.
Be kind to yourself.
You can check out a super fun reels video that I have done for this card over on Instagram!
I will be back at the same time next week for more inspiration!
