One Sheet Wonder Class

I've never actually made cards using a one sheet wonder (OSW) template before. Last year, I completed a 6x6 scrapbook using the same technique and that is only thanks to my good friend, Joy. When she visited, she introduced me to this wonderful, easy, quick way of getting those cards or scrapbooks done.

To make the cards below, all you do is take one piece of 8 1/2" x 11" neutral cardstock, random stamp on it using various colors, and cut it into pieces using a template. Click this link to see the template I used. You get 10 cards just from using this one piece of paper. Here are my cards for this weekend's class. As you will see, I added layers and embellishments to dress-up the cards.

Cards 1,2

Cards 3,4

Cards 5,6

Cards 7,8 -->

Cards 9,10

The recipe is as follows:
Stamp sets: True Friend (used on template), Little Pieces (used on template), Celebrate Everything, Happy Everything, Hugs & Wishes
Papers: Rose Red, Old Olive, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Confetti White

Ink: Same as papers
Accessories: Flower Fusion, silver brads, various punches, pumpkin pie 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, chocolate chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, various markers (same as papers)

Big Buckle Card

I am still here! Here is a nice change of pace from the usual fold. It's called a Big Buckle card and I thought the Sassy Suzie stamp set worked great for this. The slot punch is what gives this card the buckle look. If you want to try this card, check out this great tutorial.

Punched Photo Corners/Joy Fold Card

1 - Using the 5-petal punch, punch out cardstock2 - I used the 1-3/8" punch to continue to the next step3 - Line up two petals of the punched flower with the corner of the 1-3/8" punch and once it looks even, punch out your corner
4 - This is what it should look like
5 - Below you can see how I used my photo corners.

I've been wanting to try this card fold for quite sometime, and I finally got around to doing so tonight. I thought the Sassy Suzie stamp set was perfect for this.
