Sending Love One Sheet Wonder Card 1

Stamps: Sealed with Love photopolymer 142815 $21 Occasions 2017
Inks: real read, black archival
Papers: pink pirouette, real red, whisper white 100730
Accessories: white pom pom trim, sweet and sassy framelits 141707 $35

I was not smart enough to purchase the darling Sending Love designer paper stack 142733 $10 in the Occasions 2017 catalog. So I improvised and made my own paper. 

As crazy as this sounds, in my 11 plus years as a demonstrator, and my many years crafting at all, I have never done a one sheet wonder. To explain, if you are unfamiliar, you make your own designer paper, and cut it apart and use that on X number of projects. I used Mae's template I found on Pinterest. There are many templates out there so I thought, why invent an already well made wheel?! 

You do not need a lot of supplies either, I like using 3 different stamp images, one ink color and white card stock. You certainly could do your own one sheet wonder using just one stamped image and use 1 2 or 3 ink colors. This is not a new technique, just new to me. You could say "mother is the necessity of invention". I didn't order the Sending Love designer paper in the Occasions Catalog so I had to make my own. I used every scrap of this paper and you will be seeing more cards made with the paper in the next two weeks.


Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep being creative, Sandy
