16 Cards From ONE Designer Piece of Paper!
Last month, in April's Stampin' Success Magazine (Demonstrators get this cool magazine each month from SU!), they had a OSW (one sheet wonder) template, but instead of using a stamped sheet of card stock, they used one sheet of Designer Series paper! I thought it was totally clever, but the examples they gave were just a little too simple for my customers. So, I tweaked it a bit. At my last workshop, I had half of them done.... because I procrastinated and didn't start early enough for my projects. I really was sick though... so that's my excuse. :)
Anyway, my customers loved the 10 cards I had brought with me that took about 45 min. I promised I'd share the rest when I could get them done. So, thought I'd share with you too! These are simple, but you can whip out 16 with one sheet of Designer paper in about one hour. I used three colors of card stock (pretty in pink, cool caribbean, and certainly celery) plus shimmery white. Same colors for the ink, plus Timber Brown Stazon so that I could use the aquapainter and the coordinating ink pads. I chose the new Au Choclate Designer Series paper out of the new Spring Mini Catalog.
I used just three stamp sets, but you could easily just use one or two. I used Doodle This and Doodle That from the Spring Mini, plus Mini Mates for the little sayings. I also used three colors of grosgrain ribbon, pretty in pink, certainly celery, and brown. You could very easily add brads or buttons, or other accessories to spice these up, but they are perfect to use as everyday cards or as gifts for friends and family. If you took advantage of the Spring Fling promotion last month, you could very easily use your new paper, jumbo wheel and that awesome Polka Dots & Paisley set!
There are many templates for one sheet wonders available at SCS. You can try any one of them and just substitute designer series paper. If you want this OSW template, contact your Stampin'Up! demonstrator!!
Hope you all had a super weekend and you got to spend some time stampin' up some love! I got to stamp with my cousin's daughter and my son for a short while, plus finish these up, but hopefully, I'll get more done this week. The kids go back to school in the morning, Spring Break is over!
As always, I appreciate you stopping by! Have a super day!
