Lawnscaping Challenge: ONE LAYER sponsored by SIMON SAYS STAMP

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!!!!!! We missed you guys last week. It was strange not having a challenge because of that pesky 5th week!!!!!

Today we have a fun, and somewhat challenging for some of you, challenge for you!! One layer! Some people are immediately intimidated by one layer! Don't be!! One layer is fun!!! I promise! Before I show you some inspiration, please let me say a huge thank you to our challenge sponsor, Simon Says Stamp!!!! They have generously offered a $25 gift certificate to their online store to one lucky winner!

Simon Says Stamp

I am thrilled to introduce our August guest designer to you! Honestly, she really needs no introduction! She is the fabulously talented and a super giggly sweetheart, Julie Ebersole. Here's a little bit of info about her and the gorgeous card she created for this challenge, which is absolutely fabulous with the touch of washi tape and stitching!

Former high school teacher Julie Ebersole discovered rubber stamping nearly 20 years ago through cards her cousin would make and send her. She instantly fell in love with the craft and has been demonstrating, teaching, and designing with stamps ever since. She served for several years as the Design Team Coordinator for, as well as in creative and administrative capacities for A Muse Artstamps (now A Muse Studio) as the company's Creative Teams Director from 2003-2011.
Today, she continues working/designing from home in her little "closet" studio on Whidbey Island and teaches online courses through, an extension of, where she is thrilled to meet people from all around the world who are just as crazy about rubber stamping as she is!

Also joining us for this challenge is one of our wonderful challenge participants, Kari Webster. Look at all this masking and color!!
