6x6 One Sheet Wonder!

First of all, I have to thank Julie Davison--the diagram below was originally done by her!!  This is a really fun project--you stamp a 6x6 sheet of Vanilla Cardstock, then cut it up and make 4 cards!!

I used the Gorgeous Leaves, along with these colors:  Mossy Meadow, Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Night of Navy.  Here's my 6x6 sheet before cutting it:


Here is the template for cutting:


And, here are the four cards!!!

Artistically Inked Bundle

Good morning and Happy Friday!!  I have a few friends that are coming over to watch Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event with me!  These are always so much fun--we learn so much, plus we get a sneak peek at the 2022 Jan-June Mini Catalog!!  Can't wait to see what beautiful goodness awaits us!!

In the meantime, please enjoy this beautifully simple card featuring the Expressions in Ink Specialty Paper:

The paper has gold dots throughout, so I continued that with the banner of gold under the sentiment, along with the Champagne Rhinestones on the flower!  I absolutely love the simplicity of this card--very elegant!  

Here are the wonderful things used today:

Nature's Harvest--Using Scraps!

Not sure how you feel about it, but the Harvest Meadow is one of my favorite designer papers.  And because I use it so often, especially in my classes, there are a lot of scraps left over!!  Well, today's card is a great way to use up those scraps!  

Oct sas 5

Cut a piece of basic white (or any color really, as you're covering it up!).  Start on one side, and start adhering your designer paper strips.  Some are straight, some are at an angle.  Once you have the cardstock covered, trim off the excess designer paper.  Easiest to do this by turning it over, and cutting from the back side!  Easy peasy!

Supplies used on today's card:

Simple Masculine Birthday!

Why are masculine cards so hard for us to make?  It is probably the most requested card at my classes--because we always need them!  So, here's a simple one we made at my Stamp-a-Stack last weekend:

Oct sas 2

The deer is from Nature's Beauty--love her!  And I love the tree cut from the Cork Specialty Paper!  Again, very simple, but I think it's a great card for any man in your life!
