One Layer Jbelle Challenge and a CONTEST!!

Published by at 8:16 pm under Contest,Inkadinkado Designs

Happy Tuesday!! Hope you are having a great one!! Our challenge this week is to do a 1 layer card. EEKKK!!! This is sooo beyond hard to do! lol. I just HAD to use the Martha Stewart Punch Graveyard, (because it would match my spooky new Inka stamps!) but didn’t know HOW to do it with only 1 layer. My friend Rachel came up with an awesome idea! To punch it on copy paper then sponge it onto the card! It was sorta a pain, but it worked!! 😀 (At first I was thinking of punching the bottom of the card, but when you try to do that, unless you do a tricky fold or something it is upsidedown) Anyway, here is what I came up with.


  I used the NEW Inka set Happy Haunting!  The bats came from the bats that are flying out of the pumpkin! Of course the graveyard at the bottom is from Martha! I finished it off with Black Diamond Stickles!

  Are you ready for a contest!!!??? Here’s the deets: Starting Today we (the fantastic Design Team and I) will be posting the Tuesday Challenges, and THIS month all the challenges will be what you need to follow for the contest! We’d LOVE for you to play along!
