Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Designer Series Paper. I am excited to share another project with you today. Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Maureen Rauchfuss’s blog. Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!
I have yet to purchase a great deal of DSP from this year’s offering, so the choice was easy. Either Artistry Blooms or World of Good (used that for last month’s hop). I recently saw a One Sheet Wonder Based on a 6″ square piece of DSP producing 4 cards. I found it on an Australian Demonstrator’s facebook page. I haven’t been able to find out whose idea it was originally, but I think it’s a great one, and it suited my paper because it is very bright and I think the large white space balances out the bright colour. Just after I made these cards, our fellow hopper, Sandra Roberts shared some beautiful Christmas cards she had made using this technique and did a video on Youtube here. I think this layout needs a name! Any ideas?
The secret to making these cards is the template shown below. You simply take your 6″ X 6″ piece of DSP, mark 1.5″ in from each corner. Cut from top left mark to bottom right mark. Rotate and repeat. It is optional to add another layer between the DSP and the card base. Also, you either have the wider side at the top as I have or rotate 180 deg as Sandra has.
I have listed all supplies below. I hope my cards inspire you. Please add a comment and let me know what you liked about them before clicking the next image to hop to Shirley Merker’s blog in the United States to see what fun ideas she has to share.
