I don’t know about you but I enjoy doing easy projects every once in a while. I was feeling like exploring doing a One Sheet Wonder but didn’t really have the time to make 11 or 12 cards.
After spending some time (more than I care to admit!!) on Pinterest, I found a One Sheet Wonder for 6″x6″ dsp here on SMD Paper Arts, which creates just 3 cards.
I decided to use the Wood Textures DSP Stack as it’s already the right size! I then trimmed it according to the template. I did have to trim a little extra as our Aussie cardstock is a little bit smaller than US.
Unfortunately, I’ve had to use a few of my sympathy cards lately, so I needed to make a few to have handy in my stash. I’ve used the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set and embossed the sentiments with gold. The photos don’t really do the embossing justice.
I added a strip of the new black shimmer ribbon which has a little sparkle to it. I then used the layering framelits and the stitched shape framelits for the sentiment piece.
Hopefully, I won’t need to use these soon but if I do, I’ll have them ready.
A one sheet wonder template is a great resource when you are short of ideas and you get to showcase our gorgeous designer series paper.
Leave me a comment and tell me which is your favourite dsp from the current catalogue. I’ll feature the most popular one next week.
Stampin’ Up! Product List
Yes, I know Father’s Day was last Sunday, so I’m a bit late in getting my cards up to share. Better late than never, I say!!
I was inspired by the fishy card from Debra Simonis which I found on Pinterest.
I love shaker cards and I thought her oval fish bowl was just great for Father’s Day. However. I didn’t have the Seaside Shore stamp set. So I improvised and cut out the fish from the By the Shore DSP.
I love the Layering Oval framelits and it was so easy to create the fish bowl. I also used some left over silver sequins and dazzling diamonds glitter (which is still on my desk!) Oh and I forgot to mention, how great are the new foam adhesive strips for making shaker cards!!
I had to make three cards for my dad, father-in-law and Pop. I didn’t have enough of each piece of DSP to make three the same, so I adapted the design for each one. I also used the Thoughtful Banners and the Duet punch for the sentiment. I thought the Very Vanilla thick baker’s twine would make a great nautical looking rope to set the sentiment on.
I hope they all liked their Father’s Day cards and I hope you do too!!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
This week, we are casing the Artistic Expressions section of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalogue, pages 92-157.
This is a huge section of the catalogue and it was so hard to decide what to case!! I had a couple of options but decided to go with the Blooms & Wishes samples on page 138.
I cased two of these gorgeous cards. I changed the colour palette for my first card but still stayed within the colours of the DSP. I also used the scallop oval to cut out my centre piece. I just love these scallops!! To make sure my sentiment was centred on the card, I cheated and stamped it onto a separate piece of cardstock then attached that to the whisper white layer. The sheer linen ribbon in Mint Macaron is simply devine!
For my second card, I did a direct case. I did use the retired doilies as I keep forgetting to add the new ones to my order. I think I need to practice stamping circles with straight stamps, but you get the idea!!
I hop you have enjoyed my cards this week. Next stop on the hop is fellow Queenslander, Deb.
