One Layer Card - Garden Variety

Why are one layer cards so hard to do?  I really struggle with them and for some reason just keep wanting to add more to them despite me liking CAS designs.  Anyway this week's challenge over at Simply Less is More is exactly that - a one layer card with the theme DREAMS.
I  racked my brains (didn't take long) trying to think if I had any stamps I could use.  Well I finally found this stamp set by Papertrey Ink which I bought a few years ago and have never used.  Shame on you Wendy!!  It's called 'Garden Variety' and it is such a pretty stamp I shall use it more often.

The sentiment has the word 'dream' in it so that is what I went with although when I first saw the challenge I had other ideas in my head on how to interpret it.

I added some dots to the watering can with a white gel pen.
One thing I will say for one layer cards is that they can be pretty quick to make although I had to stamp this twice as I smudged some ink on the first one.

So head on over to the challenge as they have an amazing design team who come up with some fantastic cards every week.  They are very inspirational.

  1. This is so pretty Wendy! What a gorgeous stamp - it definitely deserves more air time in future! I really thought the white dots were part of the original design so you've done a great job adding those, and I love that sentiment. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More :)

  3. What a lovely card - you must have racked that brain at the right angle!

  4. Beautiful card, so fresh looking. Fabulous stamp and I love the colours you've chosen. xx

  5. Such a pretty card Wendy! The vibrant colour of the watering can is super against the tiny delicate flowers billowing out if it's spout. Yes, this set really needs to be used more and we all have lots of sets like that so shame on us all ;-)
    Thanks for joining us at Less is More.

  6. Your card is so bright and cheerful and I love the flowers flowing from the watering can!!

  7. Love this fresh and pretty card, Wendy! Lots of lovely touches like the dots on the watering can and that sentiment is perfect for our challenge this week. Thank you for sharing with us at Less is More :)
