Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters


Hello my StampTV friends!! It's Friday and time for another fun challenge. I have a very easy one, well maybe a challenge one for other like me, LOL. If you have seen my cards you know I love layers, well this time I challenge myself to create a OLC "One Layer Card" with a little twist, don't you worry, nothing really difficult, your cards have to be "One layer Christmas Cards".


I created 2 cards using images from the new StampTv kit "Wishing you Joy", they are really cute and super easy to mail too!!


I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black on Layer Weight White CS, colored them with Copic Marker. I drew a line and added a bit of blue Copic Markers and Star Dust Stickles. For the snowflakes I used a Glue Pad (like a ink pad, but instead of ink is glue) then add Glitter,it dries very quick and your glitter stays in place.


Please use keyword STVFRIGS3 You can see all the entries HERE You have until November 3th (my birthday!!), 8:00pm to upload your entry.


**Please create and upload a new project for this challenge that can only be entered into this challenge here on StampTV to be eligible for a prize, no combining of Stamp TV challenges.  However, you can combine it with challenges outside of StampTV.  And remember you don't have to use Gina K. Designs stamps, but if you do, your name will go into the drawing twice!


Have fun!  look forward to seeing your great creations!!!

Great challenge!  I don't think I've ever made a OLC....EVER!  Your cards are very cute and inspiring.  I'm off to see what I can do :-)
Correction:  I looked through my gallery and I actually have a few OLC.  But still....3 out of so many, it's still a challenge!
Oh Giovana, these are so sweet!  A glue pad is new to me and sounds like such a great idea.  To the drawing board...
Those are adorable!  You definitely did good with one layer.
I love OLC's and I cannot wait to get going on this one...I have been having way too much fun since I found this site making cards that my house has literally gone to the dogs.  It looks like it snowed in my living room since the dogs decided I was ignoring them and tore up the stuffies :)
I have never done a challenge but I may have to try this one.  When we adopted 2 of our 3 rescue Westies(we have 4 now) we came home to a few snowstorms(in Texas?) ala toilet paper.
What cute cards!  I have a question about the glue pad... do you  have to heat the glue?  Thanks for such a great challenge!
tried something new for me with this, so here it is

No Nancy, You used it like a regular ink pad, after gluing your image, you just add the glitter on top and let it dry for few minutes and voila!!

My goodness, I had forgotten all about my glue pad, guess I'll have to find it and try something with it.  Thanks for the reminder.
