Further to my last post here are the first four cards I made using the One Sheet Wonder template and a sheet of DSP from the Share What You Love Specialty DSP pack.
I’ve chosen a paper that has an all over pattern rather than a one way pattern. This makes it easier for placing the paper on the card base as often you want to change the orientation to suit the sentiment. If you have a ‘one way’ pattern this can become a bit harder.
The sentiment for these cards is from the Beautiful Day stamp set (pg 134). I didn’t want to use the full sentiment of the stamp so I coloured in the portion I wanted with my Blackberry Bliss marker and stamped it on scraps of Whisper White cardstock or directly to the Thick Whisper White card base. The DSP is matted on Blackberry Bliss.
These next two cards use a sentiment from one of my favourite sets which I was very happy to see carry over to the Annual Catalogue – Picture Perfect Birthday (pg 76). I have used this set so many times for cards – the images and sentiments are great.
This paper has 13 colours in it so you have a huge range of options for matting – I used Mint Macaron on the top card and Basic Black on the bottom card. The twine is from the Nature’s Twine pack and I’ve gone with the Grapefruit Grove. This twine consists of three strands – I’ve kept it altogether for the ‘wrap around’ piece then tied a shorter length to it and then unraveled it.
The good thing with a One Sheet Wonder is that you can change the placement of the DSP – you don’t have to copy the template layout 100%.
Don’t forget we have two specials on this month – the DSP offer of buy three packs and get one FREE and the second offer of an ink pad assortment when you sign up to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator (hobby or business). If you’d like to know more about either of these promotions just give me a call or send me an email – I’d love to help you (and have you on my team).
I’ll be back in a couple of days with the next installment of my One Sheet Wonder cards. Until then …
