Welcome to One-Layer Wednesday #160!
This week, we're going to try something wild and crazy...we're going to ACTUALLY USE OUR PINTEREST BOARDS!!! That's right. Many of you are pinning like mad and never looking at the pins again, right?
Please tell me I'm not alone.
Right? I cannot possibly be alone in this.
You can confide in me. I promise not to tell.
Confession is good for the soul.
OLW160 is your chance to use your boards and make a one-layer card inspired by something you see there. It could be a color combination, a layout, a technique, a theme, a style, an embellishment...whatever sparks a card!
Some of you may ask, "But, Susan, what if I don't use Pinterest?"
For those of you who have the moral fortitude to resist that time-wasting website, please feel free to use MY BOARDS for inspiration. You'll find lots and lots to choose from because I am a certified expert at
The pin I chose for my inspiration is from my Pure Inspiration board. Here's the picture:
I love how the black and white color scheme is given a punch of yellow-green by a single pillow. So I applied that scheme to several cards, using a fabulous yet discontinued Hero Arts shadow stamp for the hit of color.
Oh how fun!
Now, here are the rules.
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of card stock folded in half. No other layers of card stock allowed.
2. Make a card inspired either by your own boards on Pinterest or by something on my boards here.
3. Upload your card somewhere on line, and in the description, include a link to the inspiration Pin. Then link to your upload using the InLinkz button on the sidebar of Simplicity.
4. The most important rule of all...HAVE FUN!!!
