Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone and Welcome to World Card Making Day!

This is the day to STAMP, STAMP, STAMP!


We are celebrating World Card Making Day 2012 with a fun challenge that is easy as can be! This challenge will help you make LOTS of cards this WCMD 2012!


The name of this challenge is FAUX LAYERS

I am challenging you to make a single layer card that looks like it's layered. In today's StampTV video, I show you how to make a card like this using Spellbinders dies. You can also use your favorite punches or your electronic cutting machine to create your template for your faux layer OR layers.


To watch the video, click here- Sun-kissed Autumn, Who needs tape?


Now it's your turn... Make your single layer card with one of more faux layers and add your project to the gallery here at StampTV using keyword FAUXLAYERS

Deadline for entries is October 9th at 11:59 PM. Winners will be posted in the Big News forum by Thursday October 11th.


We will randomly choose 2 winners from all of the entries and those winners will get a prize package of stamps, paper and embellishments worth over $50.00! So why not play along?


And as a side challenge, send one of those quick and easy cards out to someone you love and brighten their day. :)

Happy World Card Making Day!

Fabulous card, technique and idea, Gina - can't wait to play along :D

Oh, I can maybe do one more card or so before I put my things away for a couple weeks.  I am always so tempted with these fun challenges and this one should take no time at all to do. (Famous last words perhaps) LOL I love your card Gina and I am sure I can figure something out.

You can do it Verna- it's clean and simple. Won't take long!

Thanks Rosy!

XOXO to all!

Hi, this was very challenging to NOT use bling? Egads! Anyway, where IS the site? I uploaded with the keyword "FAUXLAYERS", is that correct? I couldn't seem to click "on" anything. Just want to make sure my card entry isn't floating somewhere in internet heaven....LOL Thanks :)

Can I use my own (cheaper) stamps for this challenge and get picked out to win or do I only have to use GinaK-stamps to win?

Great video Gina!  This is an awesome challenge!  THANKS FOR THE SALE TOO!!!!  :)

AWESOME challenge----and when I say awesome I mean EEK!  I miss my layers, I miss my layers, I miss my layers!  :)  BUT I am going to play along cuz isn't THAT what a challenge is all about!  Beautiful card, off to watch the video, and then to buy a few goodies and take advantage of your sale!.  Happy WCMD!  What JOY!

I made my card and yes, it will eventually be sent to someone to enjoy this Christmas season. But not quite yet. I loved this idea for a challenge as sometimes when you have to make lots of cards for an occasion, then less is best. Your videos explain things so wonderfully too, and your samples are awesome. Thanks so much for sharing with us always. Here is my card called Merry Tree.

Here's my second card and this time I used my favorite way to make a one layer card by just simply taking a stamp pad to make my faux layer. I hope you enjoy my Swirl Tree.

Thanks for the fun challenge Gina!!  Here is my card:

How do I find the Faux Layers page to see the cards people have posted?  Do I look under forum, galleries or what?  This is my first time.

I went to the Search at the top and typed in FAUXLAYERS and I found the gallery that way.
