One Sheet Wonder Cards

Using a 12x12 sheet of dp that I would never use in a scrapbook page, I was able to cut pieces to make eight of these One Sheet Wonder cards.  That is a bit of a misnomer because you need other paper for the card bases and trims/embellishments but all of the dp is cut from one sheet.  These I cut 5.5 inches by 3 inches. There was just a little strip of paper left, but it went into the recycle bin.  I used Stampin' Up paper for the bases, Bazzill for the trim and sentiment panel.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I popped the sentiment panel with foam tape.  The sentiment panel was cut with Spellbinders/Xyron die Frame 2.  I'm going to try more of the OSW cards.  There are several examples online.  I just googled it.

OWH Sketch #220 Card Challenge

Operation Write Home has posted their 220th sketch challenge.  It hardly seems like that number could be that high.  This was a little more of a challenge than usual because there were no measurements listed on the sketch.  I made a couple before I got the hang of it.  I used only scraps for this project.  I'm whittling down my scrap file.

Cora's Challenge on OWH

Cora challenged cardmakers to make a card  using this Hero Arts Year Round stamp set.  It is one of my go to sets when I need a nice sentiment.  Hero Arts donates 25% of the profits from the sale of this set to Operation Write Home, an organization dedicated to helping the military keep in touch with the folks back home.  If you go to the Hero Arts website, it is #CL582.

 
I made this masculine card.

DS4J Challenge 89 - Wings

Morning Peeps.  It's time for the midweek challenge post at DS4J  This challenge is hosted by Sharon.  She has asked for a project using wings. My thought was that everybody would use birds or butterflies so I wanted something different.  I used one of the stamps from the Wings of Love set and the 100 Hearts sentiment.  You can find the digis here.  I saw this sketch at My Favorite Things. and wanted to use it.  I used the Cut and Paste feature on my Cameo for the image and offset it just a tad.  I used Wink of Stella glitter pens to color the image.  The paper is from a 6.5x6.5 pad by KaiserCraft called Memories.  Cardstock is from Recollections.  Bling by Want2Scrap and colored with Copics to match the red paper.

Same Image, different look

I used the Christmas Robin from DS4J to make this card.  I used the same basic sketch, but moved the image and bling around.  I like it just as much as the first, if not better.  The same stamp from Hero Arts, but no ribbon.  Instead of the ribbon, I used a piece of scrap from the first card.  As usual, I used Copic markers to color the image and the bling.  I used foam tape to pop the image.

This card will be my second for Lady Anne's April Christmas challenge.

Sunday Release - DS4J - April 6

It's Sunday again and time for a sneak peak at the new releases at DigiStamps4Joy.  I am using Ayanna.  You can find this digi and the rest of this week's new releases at the online store here

I colored the image with Copic markers.  The card is from a file from the Silhouette store and cut with my Cameo.  I backed the front of the card with a piece of pink Bazzill embossed cardstock.  The bling was from Want2Scrap and colored with Copic Markers to match the background.  The sentiment is left over from a decoupage set by Fynmark.
