One Layer Wetlands Card


Clean and Simple cards is a look that resonates with many people.  Today, learn how to make the simplest of cards with this how-to video and tutorial.  This project was made for the CAS this Sketch Challenge #82 using the Wetlands stamp set by Stampin’ Up!.

The sketch is quite simple, so I kept the card simple:

A simple mask and easy sponging will yield a scene that blends seamlessly into your one layer card.  Enjoy this video:


I think you’ll agree that it’s an easy card to make.  You can do a ton of these and quickly have a unique little stack to send out anytime!

About Ingrid Blackburn


  1. Hi,
    thank you very much for your video.
    I love the stamps set so much.
    The one-layer-card is new for me – but it looks so nice, I want to try it too. 😍

    Do you use a non permanent clue for the masking picture? 😮

    I am very new in this hobby. But it brings so much fun in my life :-).

    Thank you, have a nice day and warmest greetings from a cold town in Germany,


    • Hi Katrin – I use two – Zig two way glue: You allow it to dry clear and then it’s like a post it. If it’s wet, it’s permanent (blue). I also use Hermafix dotto, it’s repositionable at first.

      I’m glad you are having fun – it’s a great hobby!! Once layer cards are so much fun. Hopefully it’s not too cold today! 🙂

  2. Oh, this is wonderful! I love how you coloured these in! Fabulous take on the sketch!

    I have fallen in love with your masking and sponging technique. I love simple and I love to send a lot of mail. With all the “fu-fu” being shown lately, one would have to hand a card, enclose in a box or padded envelope and go broke on postage. This is EXACTLY what I have been searching for. Thanks so much for sharing.

    • I’m SO glad you loved this project Lynn. You’ll love the projects on the Creative Tips list too then. The video series has several projects just like this. Various ways to get the most out of a sheet of paper. Welcome to The Creative Grove and Enjoy! 🙂

  7. Thanks Ingrid. That was the best video for sponging that I’ve ever seen! I think that I can actually recreate the goose now in the Wetlands setting.
