One Layer Cards | SSS Card Kit April 2019 | 10 Cards 1 Kit | Video

It’s been a little while since I last did a ten card video with a Simon Says Stamp card kit. These videos take a lot of time to make, and I just haven’t had the time despite getting the kits. With this month’s kit though I was feeling very inspired, and determined to make a video. As I was starting to plan my ideas I realised there was a bit of a theme to my planning, so I decided that I would create 10 one layer cards. And in fact they all use only the stamp set, which means if you missed out on the kit but got the stamp set (or have a similar one) you can easily recreate them. I’ve also had some ideas for other cards, so as long as I have time I intend to make another video, or maybe more than one, with the kit.

Card 1 – Pink Flowers

I started my first card with a card base from Cotton Candy cardstock. I then took the largest plant pot from the Hello Darling stamp set, positioned it towards the bottom of the card base. I used Altenew Frosty Pink dye ink to stamp the plant pot. I then positioned three plant stems from the stamp set and stamped them with Coral Berry. Next I added the flower heads and sentiment, and again stamped with Coral Berry. I used a white gel pen to highlight the centres of each flower, and finished off by adding three score lines as grounding beneath the flower pot.


Daring Cardmakers – Flowers

Fusion – Sketch (kind of a loose interpretation, but that was where my inspiration came from)

Kat Scrappiness Challenge – Pastels

Less Is More – Subtle Colours

The Rainbow Card Challenge – Pink

Card 2 – Hello, Spring

I used an Ivory card base for my second card, and started by stamping the large leaf with the Hello, Spring sentiment onto it. I used Altenew Evergreen ink to stamp the leaf. I then took a couple of the other leaf stamps and used the lighter Forest Glades ink to add them peeking in on each side.


Crafter’s Castle – Anything Goes and Optional: Spring

Creative Confetti – Think Spring

STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch Challenge – Sketch

TCP Tuesday – Spring

Card 3 – Amazing Bicycle

I used Dusk ink to stamp the striped border onto my Sea Glass card base for my third card. I then positioned my sentiment and bike over the lines. I carefully inked up just the flowers in the bicycle’s basket with Wisteria ink, then the leaves with Spring Rain. Then I stamped the sentiment and the rest of the bike with Versafine Onyx Black ink.


Creative Confetti – Plant Kindness

HLS CAS Challenge – One Layer Card

Sweet Stampin’ – Anything Goes

Card 4 – Wreath Thanks

I again used a Sea Glass card base for card number four. I placed it into my MISTI with the Gina K Wreath Builder stencil. I then started stamping a wreath. I used the three leaf stamp as the main body of the wreath, stamping it with Frayed Leaf ink. I then added flowers – a small one stamped with Wisteria ink and larger one with Coral Berry. Finally I used the little dot stamp to add detail with Frosty Pink. I finished the card with the addition of a sentiment stamped with Versafine.


Allsorts Challenge – Blossoms, Butterflies, Bugs

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – Anything Goes

Card 5 – Embossed Darling

My fifth card features lots of embossing. I first treated the Dark Chocolate card base with my anti-static powder tool. I then stamped the Hello Beautiful stamp with embossing ink, before starting my pattern stamping. Using more embossing ink I added flowers, leaves, hearts and dots in a random pattern. Once I was happy, I coated the stamping with Wow Rich Pale Gold embossing powder and heat set it.


Aloha Friday – Shiny

HCP Challenge – Anything Goes

Card 6 – Floral Heart

I die cut a heart from some scratch paper and used the outer portion to mask of an area of my Ivory card base. I then did pattern stamping similar to my previous card, but constraining it to the limits of the mask area. I used Hollyhock, Wisteria, Melon and Spring Rain inks (which are from the Spring Flowers cube set). I also used a glitter gel pen to add some smaller dots to further fill in the design. I finished by removing the mask and stamping a sentiment slightly overlapping the heart. I used Versafine for the sentiment.


Fabrika Fantasy – Flowers

Stamping Sensations – May Flowers

Card 7 – Darling Dots

I used the large Hello Beautiful stamp, stamped with Midnight ink, on a card base from Cotton Candy cardstock for my seventh card. I masked a line running from top to bottom of my card, through the sentiment, and filled it in similarly to the technique on card six. This time I used only the dot stamps, and only one colour which was Spring Rain. Filling out the masked area took quite a while, but once I was happy I removed the masks, revealing the completed card.


Lil Patch of Crafty Friends – Anything Goes

Try Stampin’ On Tuesday – Sketch and Optional: Colours

Card 8 – Monochrome Bicycles

I returned to very simple stamping for my eighth card. I positioned the bike on my white card base and stamped it three times to create a column, with a larger gap between the second and third bikes. I used the same Versafine ink to stamp the sentiment onto the gap I had left.


CAS(E) This Sketch – Sketch

Creatalicious Challenges – Anything Goes

Double D Challenges – Black & White

Card 9 – Stacked Hearts

My ninth card is very clean and simple. I created a stacked, spaced line of all the hearts from the stamp set, positioned towards the lower right-hand corner of the card base. I stamped the hearts with Hollyhock ink, then used Versafine to add my sentiment.


Fun Friday Challenge – Clean and Simple

The House That Stamps Built – Anything Goes

Card 10 – Sending Sunshine

I did some masking and ink blending for my final card. Using both Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxides I created sun rays on my white card base. I kept the colour darker towards the originating corner and fading out to white. When I was happy with the inking I added my sentiment, stamped in Versafine, before finishing off with a few Limoncello Nuvo Drops.


Classic Design Team Challenge – Anything Goes

Digi Choosday – Anything Goes

The Paper Shelter – Sentiment


I had so much fun making all these one layer card designs. I hope you enjoyed the cards I made and perhaps you’re inspired to make one layer cards yourself. I’d love to hear which of the cards is your favourite. As I mentioned in the video I’m planning on making another ten cards using the patterned papers from the kit. I hope you’ll check back to see them!
