The current challenge at Shopping out Stash is the dreaded one layer card ( That means everything on your card must be directly stamped, embossed, drawn, coloured etc. directly on your card base…no layers!!) Well, about 4 months ago, I ordered a stamp set from Northwood’s Stamps, specifically to make a birthday card for my husband. His Birthday is tomorrow. I work best under pressure. Super simple: Watercolor paper card base. Image stamped in Gina K Amalgam ink. A soft wash of distress inks, then a light splatter. Sentiment from Cat’s Life Press. voilà – 5 minute card!
Thanks for stopping by!

at my house the phrase “5 minute card” is only used ironically, to indicate a process which SHOULD be simple and easy, but inexplicably winds up taking several days and perhaps a visit from paramedics lol. so it is thus doubly impressive to me that this card is so incredibly lovely AND you made it quickly. and i hope you got northwoods to pay you a royalty for making a stamp out of the view from your dock!!!!!!!!!! :) thanks for SHOPPING YOUR (one layer!) STASH with us this fortnight! ♥♥♥
I love this card Elisabeth! Transports you right there – ahhhh! Hope to see you soon.
WOW This is the card you mentioned last night at class. Beautiful – this stamp can be used in sooo many different ways
