Good morning fellow Technique Junkies. It's Beth Norman here with a tutorial for a one layer panel card that I designed. It's a good way to use up your favourite stamps. I am so in love with the Whimsy Branch and use it whenever I can.
My card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" simply because my Poppy is so large. This technique works well with an A2 size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") as well.
I'd love to see some of your One Panel cards on our Yahoo group.

Supplies: Ink Pads, three (or more) stamps, ink, sponges, sticky Post-it notes
Sponge on your colour. Use as many ink pads as you desire.
Sponge colour all over your cardstock and stamp your main image in the center of your cardstock.
Place sticky notes on both sides of your main image. For my 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card I left a 1 1/4" (3 cm) border. Sponge ink along the sticky note.
In the opposite direction, place sticky notes so it leaves a small square, and sponge with ink once again.
Leaving your sticky notes in place, stamp out your images as shown.
Place your sticky notes over top of the sponged colour, leaving the sticky note on the long side in place. Sponge colour ONLY along the side, and stamp out your image, with the sticky note in place.
Repeat the step above, placing your sticky notes along the edge of the previously inked edge. Ink your long edge (you will note I forgot to ink before I stamped out my image) then stamp out your image, leaving sticky notes in place.
Take off all the sticky notes, and you will find your card inked as shown.
I hope you liked my technique. I have done it on glossy cardstock with a Kaleidacolor and brayer on my A2 sized card.
I look forward to seeing your work on our Yahoo group.
