w&w 1st Birthday Bash | One Challenge with Shay


Hello fellow party goers!  It's Shay here.  I am so excited to bring you my challenge.  I had to put my thinking cap on and decided to create something to commemorate our 1st birthday.  I call it the One Challenge.


Make a new project using the number 1 or one, one color, one pattern, one layer, one embellishment, one photo, one word or one stamp set (and so on)...really anyway to incorporate one into your project!  You can focus on a single option or combine the options (for instance a one layer card using one color + one embellishment).


I made two simple cards for this challenge that hopefully will give you a little creative push to take on the One Challenge. :-)

Card No. 1


I wanted to do a card with a single color.  I chose blue as I liked the Distress Ink options I had in that color family.  With tumbled glass, stormy sky, faded jeans and chipped sapphire I stamped the heart circle from The Write Stuff: Love Story in a gradient pattern (this could work for Mayuri's or Vanessa's challenge and maybe even Heather's color challenge!).  I cut out each panel and adhered them with dimensional foam adhesive to a white A2 card.  I cut out the "love" from The Big, the Bold and the Happy Cutaways in navy cardstock.   I adhered the love to the card front.  I added clear Stella of Wink to love (which doesn't show up in the photos).  I also added some punched hearts to the circle heart pattern.


Card No. 2


In pencil I drew the number 1 on a panel of white cardstock and cut it out with a craft knife.  I used picked raspberry Distress Ink and a mini ink blending tool with the Scenery: Classic Diagonal Creative Screenings on the panel.  On a white A2 card base I adhered many die cuts from white cardstock of "happy" from The Big, the Bold and the Happy Cutaways.  I adhered the "1" panel over the cardbase with foam dimensional adhesive and then finished it off by adhering a silver die cut "happy".


Can't wait to see what you make!
