One Sheet Wonder

I know…2 posts in one day…a miracle! LOL

A One Sheet Wonder (OSW) is a set of cards made using only one sheet of A4 card as the main focus of the card. You can stamp it or use a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP). This is an example of a OSW using a piece of DSP. I chose a sheet from Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Treasure. I cut the sheet to A4 size and then cut it up into smaller bits. I have a template sheet that I will send to you if you are interested…just send me an email.

The card bases are all Confetti Cream and I used the colours from the DSP to decorate- Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Old Olive. I then added some images from my Christmas stamp sets and a variety of embellishments to complete the cards. You can add as many different embellishments that you like..or none at all and just let the feature paper be the star of the card.

It is a very easy way to make a lot of cards  quickly! I hope you enjoy them!



Bad Blogger

Sorry Everyone for my slackness in not updating my blog for sooooo long. This time of year is just bedlam for me. We went away on holidays at the start of October for 2 weeks and then I had to come back to work and get organised to write the Music report cards for the 800 kids at my school. On top of all that, I had classes and workshops to plan and deliver, literacy training to attend, concerts for dancing and at school! It sure has been busy!!

To start off, I will show you the projects that we made at my World Cardmaking Day back in October. These first 4 projects were the Stamp-a-Stack that we did.
