Congrats Grad - One sheet wonder


I've got a quick post and a flash back for ya! Remember the Father' day cards I created using the one-sheet-wonder? These cards were part of the set. I used some of the cards to create some country themed graduation cards. Just in case you're new to my blog, here's the template I used. 



My fav parts of these cards are the the Jolee's dimensional stickers and the punched border I created using Martha Stewart's cathedral lace punch. Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats Graduate!


For the next several posts I'll share graduation cards made using (surprise!!) the one sheet wonder method. Here's the template I used. There's bullet points toward the bottom of the post showing various ways to cut the one sheet to achieve different results.

I chose to make 8 cards so I cut 8 blue layers from the one sheet of double sided 12x12 patterned. The card bases and the decorative layers and mats were extra pieces brought in to make the cards a reality. Here's the first two from the series....


The stamps are from Inkadinkado and Hampton Art. The patterned paper is from Hot off the Press, the card bases and pink layers are Die Cuts With a View (DCWV).

Sending smiles... friendship card featuring Elizabeth Crafts and Lawn Fawn


Peace and blessings to you all! Here's the last card my daughter helped me make in this series. FYI - I have plenty more projects planned for us this summer. I'll be sure to share. As always she colored the focal.  I love the sections of color she created with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The butterfly is an Elizabeth Crafts outline sticker and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

A quick tip for you - I stamped my sentiment last and it was a disaster! Some areas (dashed lines) didn't stamp well. I pulled out my secret weapon! Ok, ok it's not that secret... it's a Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I was able to find one in the same color (metallic purple) and drawn in the dashes.  And voila! You'd never know I initially made a mistake.

Additional supplies:
  • Memento ink
  • Elizabeth Crafts microfine glitter (warm diamond)
  • gray cardstock, sequins and epoxy dots (from my stash)
  • card base - We R Memory Keepers - inked rose

OSW Finale - You're the Best! Happy Father's Day!


Happy Father's Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's been a blast blogging every day! I hope you caught the one sheet wonder fever. Here's the last of the cards and a look back at all of the cards. I love the rustic look of this distressed wood grain paper. Although it has a pretty pattern, it's manly enough to use for Father's Day. The ribbon stamp from Close to my Heart is the perfect pairing to complete the card front.


Here's a look back at all the cards I made with each sheet of patterned paper. Here's the template I used.


I've never made outdoorsy kinds of cards until now. This fishing paper really grew on me.


And this deer patterned paper did as well!


Thanks for hanging in there with me over the past two weeks of daily posts. I'm going back to posting every other day but will share more OSW creations. Subscribe and don't miss a thing!

Dad Happy Father's Day


It's Day 2 of my new obsession - the one sheet wonder (OSW)!! Here's the template I used to make this year's Father's Day cards. Every day until June 21st (Father's Day in the USA), I'll share my OSW creations.


This style requires a card base and focal layer to go with the cuts from the OSW template.  I thought stamping would be the perfect accompaniment. Using the OSW method took all the guess work out and I found myself having more fun with the supplies I have.


Supplies:
  • The Paper Studio - patterned paper
  • Card bases - DCWV
  • layers - Bazzill, DCWV
  • Stamps - outside: Stampendous, inside: Stampin' Up!
  • Memento Ink
