One Sheet Wonder

Happy Sunday!
The sun is now shining, now that the day is nearly over!
The garden is looking decidedly soggy.
Oh well, the fire is lit, roast dinner in the oven, and some snowflakes to crochet this evening.

I hope you've  had a nice weekend.
I went to London yesterday to meet a friend for lunch,
and every time I go,  I am amazed at the changes, the architecture, and  the people!

Anyway, I thought I'd share a recent class project,
where we did a One Sheet Wonder.

It's basically  stamping an A4 sheet of cardstock, then chopping it into bits to make lots of cards!
We used the Snowflake Soiree stamp set, in blues, with a touch of green:
We all found it difficult to do 'random' stamping, but it's good fun!

This is one way of 'dissecting' the sheet!

Then it's a case of designing the cards.......
here's a selection of the ones I made:

Using a punch to make baubles, and pricking for the 'strings'
(the tops are owl's feet!) 

Stamping and die-cut Festive Flurries

 adding a punched border


 using decorative paper and ribbon strip


 one for the boys possibly?

I'll show you some more tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Great ideas here Lesley. Coincidentally . . . I was playing with OSW with 6" x 6" paper! Love the idea of stamping your own paper first, rather than using up precious DSP!
