Flower Patch One Sheet Wonder

Back in July my friend and fellow demonstrator Madonna Dunn shared a wonderful set of cards she had created using a One Sheet Wonder & the Flower Patch stamp set.  Her cards were gorgeous and I was so inspired that I immediately grabbed a sheet of Whisper White cardstock and started stamping my own One Sheet Wonder:

All of the cards follow a similar theme and that is the beauty of a One Sheet Wonder – you can grab a selection of bits to work with and then just get creating!  No going back and forth to your supplies to choose the next embellishment etc – you have it all there in front of you!  Here is a closer look at some of the cards (I will share the rest later in the week)

Masked Wetlands

Happy Friday!  What does everyone have planned for the weekend?  We have lots of dance concert practices to fit in this weekend, but I do get the chance to escape and do some stamping on Sunday afternoon with a lovely group of ladies!

Today I am sharing another of the cards I taught in Kapiti last weekend.  This one uses the masking tape technique with the Wetlands stamp set.

Friendly Feathers

Hello there!  I’ve made it back to share some more inspiration!  This past weekend I was the guest teacher for a card making group on the Kapiti Coast.  We had a lovely day of creating – I taught them 6 different cards over the day and I think they were all enjoyed by everyone in attendance.  It was a long day teaching that many projects to 25 people, but I had lots of fun and hope I get invited back again!

I’ll be sharing the 6 cards here over the next couple of weeks, so here is number 1, using the new Four Feathers Stamp Set and matching Framelits from the Holiday Catalogue.

I teamed the feathers up with lots of prettiness on this card – Tea Lace Doilies, Gold Sequin Trim, Typeset Specialty DSP, Pearls and more! Have you tried the new Cotton Ribbon yet?  You MUST – it is gorgeously soft and ties really nicely on projects!  I also shared a fun sponging technique on this card to give the feathers a kind of ombre look.

Stamps: Four Feathers, And Many More
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Typeset Specialty DSP
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Calypso Coral
Other: Tea Lace Doilies, Pool Party Cotton Ribbon, Gold Sequin Trim, Pearls, Bitty Accents Punches, Big Shot, Feathers Framelits
