I made 4 more cards using the One Sheet Wonder and First Fruits by Papertrey Ink, sticking with the theme of paper and ink only, and I still have enough paper left to make at least 2 more. So that’s 7 made so far, and a couple more coming! Really rushed tonight, so if you missed yesterday’s post, please refer to it. It also includes all the supplies and more detail. Here are today’s new cards:
All the same supplies as yesterday, only I added some More Mustard Paper and 2 of the cards used a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
This is one of those narrow embossing folders that come about 5 in a pack. This actually has flowers in the center. I only wanted the swirlies on the edges, so I covered the flowers in the center and no one will ever know the difference (except YOU – LOL!).
This card is my personal favorite from today’s cards. Again, if you want the list of supplies and more detail, seeyesterday’s post. Sorry to be so brief, but maybe you actually like that better — LOL!!! Got to run!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STOPPING IN!!! I’ll move on to something different for tomorrow!!! Oh, and before I go, I just want to share that I really love these Papertrey stamps. They are clear stamps and the finest quality I have used. They accept ink wonderfully, all the time, and are an absolute pleasure to work with! Have a great day everyone!!!
Editing: I’ve been getting a lot of questions on how I got my One Sheet Wonder stamped so uniformly — wondering if I’m using a ruler or drawing lines, etc., etc. No, nothing, just eye-balling it.I started in the lowerleft corner and stamped in a line across the diagonal towards the upper right corner, rotating my stamp each time. I then came down and did the row beneath it, stamping my image kind of between the images in the row above. When I got to the bottom, I just flipped the paper and did the other half. HOWEVER, I have made many mistakes – the pattern truly is not uniform. On several occasions I forgot to flip my stamp and my rows are not as straight as you all seem to think they are — LOL!!! The point is, it looks nice because the color is so stunning and the images are spaced apart in a FAIRLY uniform fashion — it is far from perfect, but the eye sees the overall project, it does not focus on each stamped image. So just have fun with it — don’t strive for perfection because it’ll never happen — at least not in MY house — LOL!!! So happy that you all liked it so well!!! Truthfully, I had a blast with it and can’t wait to do more!!!
