Stampotique challenge time!

The challenge over on the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog has been set by the lovely Gez this week. The challenge is to create a one-layer card. *gulp*. It won't surprise you to know that I am WAY out of my comfort zone with this one. I don't DO one layer haha!! Infact I think I may even have cheated a little with this one. Not sure .... ! Does this count as one layer do you think?!

Ah well, all I can say is 'I done my best'!

Hop over to the Stampotique Designers Blog to see what the rest of the team have come up with, and don't forget to sign up with your own one-layer creation!



  1. It's fab though - whether it counts as one layer or not! and I love those birds!


  2. It certainly DOES count! It's a STUNNER Kate ♥♥

  3. I think you passed :-) Seriously, it's fab, as ever.

  4. Well the only reason its not a OLC is because you mounted it onto folded card stock you noggin lol otherwise its a fab OLC (just rip of of its card and you have succeeded lol). The layers not required in a OLC are are in the card stock (ie matt and layering) and embellies ie use none.

    Love it though. Very much a Kate creation.

  5. You did your best you say, now it is beautiful. marvelous card and I lvoe the colors black and red.
    Lovely greet Marja

  6. Love the combination of the great red colors and the black and white on this card Kate.

    And I cannot enter your Dutch workshop...all days are fully booked even Thursday grrrr....

    Greetings, Alie :-)

  7. This is fabulous and you made me LOL at your honesty!

  8. I would definitely have difficulty with only one layer. Evil Edna does this really well, and she's funny too. I like reading her short but sweet posts. It's because we like backgrounds, and EE focuses on the image, which can be really expressive. I think it's much harder to be simple, I can't resist the temptation to fill white space! I think on this occasion you get an F! for your fabulous, gorgeous multi-layered card! Ha Michelle x

  9. I say it counts-it's a gorgeous example of fusing your wonderful style with just one layer!

  10. HA HA....
    Lovely as ever.

  11. The colours are simply sumptuous on this Kate! Love the stamps - must check those out myself as I love 'em. Have a happy day, Jo x

  12. I absolutely LOVE this! Such rich color and patterns. I think you nailed the one layer challenge.

  13. It certainly looks like one layer to me Kate. Love it x

  14. gorgeous card kate, love it

  15. LOL! Yes difficult challenge indeed but you did a gorgeous job of it! Thanx for sharing and for the inspiration!

    PS Love Love Love the new DvD's! :)


  16. Love it, beautiful colors!

  17. Ha ha ha, methinks your 'ghosting' technique gives you away a little!!
    Anyhoo, yet another gorgeous card in your own inimitable, bright and cheerful style Kate, I love it.
    Big hugs x x x x

  18. Not sure it does count but it's still fab! Lol

  19. No I don't think so!!! But it's gorgeous and could possibly be considered one layer since it's not dimensional. Don't feel bad, I couldn't do it either!

  20. i totally agree that this is one layer, as you didn't stack any paper. Ha!
    how could one not love this? love how the white circles make everything pop!

  21. Your top layer is one layer ROFL!!! Doesn't matter, it's gorgeous!

  22. There is no way that is one layer, but it is in so many ways an absolutely beautiful card! Oh the watercolors and how they sparkle with texture. The stamps you chose work so well together and I love the painted circles.
    You are justnot a one layer girl.
    Be the multidimensional being that you are.

  23. Love the design totally, the coloring and stamping is absolutly gorgeous!
    Hugs Anja
