OLS27 Details

Thank you everyone who joined in having a fruit smoothie with us this month. We had a mix of fruit themed cards and fruity-named inks which gave us a delicious blend of fruity talent and inspiration.

Make sure you come back on June 1st to see our next challenge but before you go check out the details that stood out for the us this month.

Heather's details

The contrast of bright pink on clean white is eye catching and Julie divided the flowers with a clever masked strip.

Sherrie M lined up her apples perfectly and added interest with a contrasting mix of colours. The white space at the bottom draws the eye to her sentiment.

Julie B stuck to a classic black and white colour scheme with some beautiful soft highlights

Karen's Details 

 Maura's card got my attention with the wonderful sponging and the warmth of the colours she used.

 Buffy's card is so yummy with it's clean and simple look.

Laura Jane created this lovely card with great colour depth and interest with the colours she used.

Ardyth's Details

Greta's graphic, masculine card is full of energy!

Mother's Day

Ashwini's use of colour makes a stunning, elegant mother's day card!

OLS27 Fruit Smoothie

Elizabeth's peaches are fresh and vibrant!

Susan's Details

Cornelia used these awesomely individual eggplants combined with the perfect sentiment, but the spatters really are simply perfect here.

Susan's coloring and shading on these strawberries makes me want to pick them and eat them! The way the rounded bottom corners mimic the strawberries' shapes works beautifully.

OLS27 Fruit Smoothie

This month at One Layer Simplicity we are asking you to make a fruity card. There are two ways to go about this challenge.

You can pull out your fruit stamps and stamp a fruity design or you can pull out your inks with fruity names and use them. You have to admit there are a great many inks named after fruits. Memento has the pear tart, the cantaloupe and the tangelo. If distress is more your style there is the picked raspberry or the festive berries. Maybe you have the chameleon Seville orange and purple grape to add to your smoothie. 

My fruit smoothie card features picked raspberry and seedless preserves distress markers on an emboss resist design.

OLS27 Rules
  1.  A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers of paper allowed! For this challenge, you may make tags or any other paper long as it's one layer of card stock.
  2. Make whatever you wish! Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum. 
  3. Post your card somewhere on the internet and link to it using the InLinkz button below. If you link to your blog, please be sure to link to your OLS27 post, not to your blog's main page. That way, we will be sure to see your beautiful entry!
  4. The deadline is midnight EST on May 24th. 
  5. The most important rule of all: HAVE FUN and eat more fruit!
