6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder Project with Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper

Have you ever heard of a One Sheet Wonder?  It’s when you use ONE sheet of patterned paper to make multiple, coordinating cards.  If you google “One Sheet Wonder” or enter it into Pinterest, many, MANY examples pop up!  Some are designed for 6 x 6 inch paper, some for 8 x 8, some for 12 x 12, and I’ve even seen some for 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper!  Some are super simple, while some are pretty intricate.  However, regardless of the size or level of detail, one sheet wonder projects are a great way to make a bunch of beautifully coordinated cards!

The template I chose to use for my project today uses one sheet of 6 x 6 inch designer series paper!  I found the template on Pinterest, and it linked to a blog post of a fellow papercrafter by the name of Kathy Roney.  The template I used is her original design.  Although I switched up the cards a bit to put my own spin on them, I did use her template, and I definitely want to give her credit for creating it!  If you would like to see her original template and the gorgeous cards she created with it, please click HERE.

For my cards, I decided to use a sheet of paper from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper!  I started with a 6 x 6 inch sheet and then cut it up as shown below:

All of the colors I used for my cards coordinate with the colors in the paper.  The colors I used are:

All cards measure 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches, and they all use a few common products (besides the DSP):
  • Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
  • Pearl Basic Jewels
  • Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon
  • Love What You Do stamp set

Here is a close up of each card individually:

This project was a lot of fun to complete, and a great one to try if you’ve never done a One Sheet Wonder project before!  The cutting and designs are pretty simple, and can easily be used for a variety of styles and layouts!  Here’s another look at all 6 completed cards together:

I hope you’ve enjoyed my post today!  If you have any questions about this project, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Dragonfly Dreams Meets Share What You Love

This gorgeous card was one of the cards I made on Saturday in Maine!  It was designed by my friend and fellow demonstrator, Sherri Everett!  She held a card buffet where you could go and make as many cards as you wanted, and it was so much fun!  It ended up taking me almost five hours to get there, so I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked, but I still got to make six full cards, and I took four kits home to make with supplies I have at home.  Sherri’s designs are really beautiful!  This was the first one that caught my eye, as green is my favorite color, and there are multiple shades of green on this card. Plus I LOVE dragonflies, so this was one I definitely needed to make!

This card features the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, as well as the NEW Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper!  Layering Circles Framelits were used to cut the circle with the dragonfly, as well as the scalloped piece behind it.  It’s embellished with Burlap Ribbon, as well as some Linen Thread, and the sentiment piece was trimmed with Paper Snips, but the Triple Banner Punch could be used as well!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Thick Whisper White card stock base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 and folded in half)

Tranquil Tide middle layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

DSP top layer:  3-3/4 x 5 inches

Whisper White circle:  2-11/16 inches in diameter

Tranquil Tide scalloped circle:  2-13/16 inches in diameter

Burlap Ribbon piece:  3-1/2 inches

Old Olive banner/sentiment piece:  3 x 1/2 inches

 

One thing I really love about the Designer Series Paper that Sherri used for this card, is that some of the designs have beautiful, iridescent accents!  This design is one of them, and I tried to get some good pictures of the accents, but it’s hard to see.  All of the largest flowers on this design have the iridescent finish, and they are so pretty in person!  It adds such a nice touch to this card!

I have many more cards that I made on my trip, and I will share them with you hopefully over the next few weeks!

Thanks for visiting today!  Please let me know if you have any questions!

Send a Hug with Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper

Today’s card uses mostly NEW product from the new annual catalog!  The sentiment is from the Abstract Impressions stamp set, the paper banners are from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the embossed background was made with the new Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The flowers were die cut with a die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.

Even though I used only three colors/patterns from the Share What You Love paper, it actually has a stunning color palette of 13 gorgeous colors!  The paper also contains patterns and shades of pinks, purples, blues, and more.  You can see the entire array of colors and designs below:

I just love this paper!  It includes 6 double sided handpainted designs on heavyweight paper.  Four of the designs have a really pretty pearlized finish.  Each sheet measures 12 x 12 inches, and the package contains 24 sheets!  The full color palette for this paper is shown below:

 
Measurements for this card are as follows:

Thick Whisper White cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Whisper White top layer: 3-9/16 x 4-13/16

A Lovely Floral Card Made with the Share What You Love Suite

My card today was made for a wedding that I will be attending next week!  I used two items from the NEW Share What You Love Suite, along with some current favorites.  To make this card, I embossed the top layer with a new embossing folder called the Lovely Floral Dynamic 3D Textured Embossing Folder.  It has a large, beautiful floral design that gets pressed into your paper when run through the Big Shot!  The design is pretty enough to stand on it’s own, but for this card, I wanted to do something a little different.  Here’s a peek at the folder so you can see what the whole design looks like:

It’s hard to see the whole thing, but there is a large central flower in the design of this folder.  For my card, I chose to cover up the flower with the sentiment, and instead have the sentiment be the center focus of the card.  The sentiment is heat embossed in silver and is from the Love What You Do stamp set.  It was cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits, and framed with a scalloped circle from the same set in a brand new color called Soft Sea Foam.  (I also used this color for the middle layer of the card.)

In order to dress up this card a little more, I added some vellum leaves made with the Leaf Punch, as well as some die cuts cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  For those, I used the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  I also added a piece of sheer 1/8 inch white ribbon behind the sentiment for a little extra detail, and of course, added a few pearls in there too…it’s for a wedding, so why not?  🙂

Right now, you can get the Love What You Do stamp set and the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder as part of the Gotta Have It All early release bundle in the online store!  In addition to the two gorgeous items mentioned above, you also get a bunch of other items from the new Share What You Love Suite, as well as THREE FREE GIFTS with your purchase!  To see the full bundle and what is included, please click HERE. 

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Shimmery White cardstock base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Soft Sea Foam middle layer:  3-7/8 x 5-3/16 inches

Shimmery White cardstock top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

Shimmery White/Soft Sea Foam sentiment pieces:  2-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches

Vellum leaves and Dazzling Diamonds pieces:  2 x 2-1/2 inches each

 

Did I mention that this whole card is made from Shimmery White Cardstock?  That, combined with the Dazzling Diamonds paper, silver sentiment, pearls, and more all make this a perfect wedding card!  I hope that the couple I made it for will like it.  (And I hope you do too!)

If you have any questions about this card, please feel free to ask.  Thank you for visiting today!

My Final OnStage Display Board Project!

My final display board project is actually very similar to the very first project I shared using items from the new Annual Catalog!  If you remember, I made a mini pizza box using the Love What You Do stamp set.  I even used most of the same colors as on this card!  Here’s a pic of the project I am referring to if you’d like to take a look:

Both projects use many of the same products, including the Love What You Do stamp set, the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, the Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, and the Tea Room ribbon!  However, on today’s project, the sentiment is not heat embossed, but rather stamped in Soft Suede ink, and framed by an outline stamp and framelit from the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlits Dies (which are retiring May 31st.)  The ribbon is also tied in a bow for the card!

I really love the color palette for this card!  The colors that were used are as follows:

And of course, Very Vanilla is used as the base neutral in this project as well (even though it’s not shown above!)

 

The measurements for this card are as follows:
Crumb Cake card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Very Vanilla middle layer:  3-3/4 x 5 inches
Wood Textures DSP top layer:  3-5/8 x 4-7/8 inches
Very Vanilla Stitched Shapes Circle:  3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches
Very Vanilla sentiment piece:  2 x 3 inches

 

 

This card was embellished with the NEW Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack, as well as a few Pearl Basic Jewels that have been colored with an Ivory Stampin’ Blends Marker.  The ribbon will be available June 1st and comes in pack of two colors: Very Vanilla and Coastal Cabana.  The ribbon is 1/8 inch wide, and has beautiful Copper edging, which you can see nicely in the picture directly above!

 

So that’s it for my OnStage Display Board samples.  I hope you have enjoyed what I have created!  Don’t forget, the Love What You Do stamp set is available NOW to order as part of the Share What You Love Early Release, now through May 31st!  Click HERE to go to the early release section of the online store!

 

If you have any questions regarding this, or any other project I’ve shared, please feel free to ask!  🙂

Share What You Love Suite Early Release Begins May 1st

Over the past couple of weeks I have shared a number of projects I created using a brand new stamp set called the Love What You Do stamp set.  It is definitely my favorite of the three sets that I received for my OnStage display board!  I only received the stamp set, but it is actually part of an entire suite of products that is going to be released on May 1st to customers, a WHOLE MONTH before the Annual Catalog goes live on June 1st!  For the early release, the stamp set will be available as part of three exclusive bundles which will ONLY be available during the month of May.  Once the catalog ordering period begins on June 1st, everything in the bundles will still be available, but will only be available separately.  Each bundle also includes at least one FREE GIFT when purchased during the early release, which makes this offer even sweeter!  So let’s take a peek at each of the bundles and what is included in each:

The Just Getting Started Bundle

This bundle is the most basic of the three, and is perfect for beginning stampers!  It includes a free gift of Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes (a $6.50 value)!  This bundle costs $57.00 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149524.

 

The A Little More, Please Bundle

This bundle is a bit of a step up from the first and includes TWO stamp sets, as well as TWO free gifts: a package of Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes AND the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (an $18.00 combined value)!  This bundle costs $91.50 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149525.

 

The Gotta Have it All Bundle

This is the most inclusive bundle available and includes THREE free gifts!  The free gifts include the two gifts from the previous bundle, as well as an exclusive stamp called the Statement of My Heart Stamp (a $30.00 combined value).  This bundle costs $127.50 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149526.

 

2018-2020 In Color Ink Pads Bundle

In addition to the three Share What You Love bundles, the early release also includes a bundle of the NEW 2018-2020 In Color Ink Pads!  Get all FIVE colors in the NEW ink pad style for only $33.75, which is a savings of 10% off the cost of them separately!  This is a great way to get the new colors early AND save a bit of money at the same time!  The item number for the In Color ink pad bundle is 147153.

So there you have it!  Which one(s) will you choose?  All of these bundles are available for purchase starting May 1st!  They may be ordered in the online store, or directly through me via email at nicollebelesimo@gmail.com!  If you are a new customer, purchasing any of these bundles through me will also guarantee you a copy of the NEW Annual Catalog, which will be delivered sometime in mid-May!  I would love to add you to my list!  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!  🙂

Enjoy your day!
