Hurray for Stamp-a-ma-jigs!

Just playing today, and I found one or two challenges to help me. I wanted to try out my new Stamp-a-ma-jig thingy and so stamping was my main focus.  I have used the lovely colour palette from Colour Throwdown , perfect for the masculine card I wanted to make for Less Is More-haven't played over there in a while. Have to say that my Old Olive ink pad is so dried up that I had to use a substitute - I chose River Rock-hope that's OK

I also wanted to use Gorgeous Grunge, I am so mad about this stamp set, love, love , love it! Must admit, I don't often do one layer cards but I am always impressed by them.  looking at the gallery of winners from last week's LIM challenge gave me the idea.  Enough chat, here's my card

As you can see I've used the tie image from Best Dad Ever (the sentiment is from that set too), although I masked off two of the ties, 5 was way too many, and Off The Grid as a background.  One tiny rhinestone tie pin keeps it LIM.  For me technically, I am very pleased with the positioning and masking -it's good to develop new skills.


  1. What a great effort Louise, I agree one layer cards are daunting.

  2. Super one layer card, so effective.
