Easiest One Sheet Wonder Ever

Everybody needs to know what I consider the EASIEST One Sheet Wonder EVER!!! It's a simple 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder that makes 3 cards and can be used with just about any size stamped sentiments or images. You are going to LOVE it, so watch my video demonstration, then give it a try. The cards I demonstrate feature the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Sets (one of my favorites for birthday cards) and Pacific Point DSP from the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Pack.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Cut 6" x 6" DSP at 2".
  • Cut 1/2" off the 2" x 6" strip.
  • Turn the 4" x 6" piece to the horizontal/landscape position. Cut in half at 3" to make two 3" x 4" pieces. 
  • Cut Basic White card stock 2 1/4" x 5 1/2" to layer DSP strip on.
  • Cut 2 pieces of Basic White card stock 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" to layer the other two DSP pieces on.
  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score & fold at 4 1/4".

To add a little more interest to these cards, add a layer of embossed card stock as I did on the cards below. I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, my most used embossing folder. I like the subtle texture it provides.

Daffodil Afternoon Gift Card Holder & More

It was a cold, wintery day in central Ohio on Friday, January 7th, but I was able to bring some sunshine to the day when I chose to use the Daffodil Afternoon Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper to feature in my projects. I love that everyone has the opportunity to earn this beautiful Designer Series Paper Free. Yep, it's true. Place a $50 order and choose Daffodil Afternoon DSP or one of several other products from our Sale-A-Bration Brochure. AND, did you know that the Daffodil Afternoon DSP coordinates with our new Daffodil Daydream Bundle in the new Mini Catalog? I love Stampin' Up!'s coordination of products, colors, and themes. It makes creating extra fun and easy!

In this video replay of Friday's Facebook Live, I demonstrate how to make a Gift Card Holder using a 3" x 12" strip of Daffodil Daydream DSP. It's a easy layout to replicate on your own and is great for birthdays, graduations, weddings, and so much more. I'll also show you cutting dimensions and card ideas for another sheet of the pretty Daffodil Daydreams DSP to help you make a nice assortment of Daffodil Afternoon cards including some slimline cards.

Stack & Shuffle Technique

Here's a fun technique that allows you to showcase your favorite Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and make a set of 4 cards quickly and easily. You're going to love it, so start pulling out your favorite DSP so you can craft along with me in this video.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White card stock for inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • 4 different but coordinating pieces of DSP = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Stack the 4 pieces of DSP. With stack in vertical position, cut at 2 3/4". Turn stack of wide strips to horizontal position, and cut at 3". Turn stack of narrow strips to horizontal position, and cut at 2".
  • Shuffle DSP stacks as shown in video

 

My sample cards shown below feature the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (AC pg. 132). Do you notice any new products used on these cards?

Picture This Dies are Fabulous!

I didn't think I needed the Picture This Dies when I first saw them in the Annual Catalog, but boy am I glad I decided to buy them. I'm having so much fun mixing and matching colors, and papers, and images while making all these cards. With Picture This Dies and a little imagination and a lot of mixing and matching, the possibilities are endless. You can't go wrong with this product. Watch my video demonstration and see the different ways I used the rectangle Picture This Die. Soon, I'll be playing with the circle frames also part of the Picture This Dies collection. 

 

Take a look at the many cards I created with the Picture this Dies and In The Wild Designer Series Papers.

The Tailored Tag Punch was used to hold this gift card holder closed.
