Pop of Pink One Sheet Wonder - part 1.

Hello, Crafters.

Yesterday I was working on a One Sheet Wonder, using a 12" x 12" sheet of Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper (DSP).

I was hoping that I'd be able to make it into a video! Unfortunately, because I put lots of layers on my cards,  it would take far to long. I've decided to share it here on my blog instead. 

I don't think it'll be more than two or three posts to show all ten cards I achieved! It would have been more if I'd used our Notecards & Envelopes!

I've made all mine as Thank You cards, and they would make a lovely gift for someone if they were in a co-ordinating box! 

They would make great cards for other occasions if they were embellished with flowers, butterflies, bows, etc.

As far as a video is concerned, I'm now working on a similar idea but using a sheet of 6" x 6" DSP. I think for this I might use our Notecards & Ennvelopes so I can more out of the sheet!

The first two cards I'm sharing are the only cards that don't have squares or oblongs! 

The black and white diamonds and the pink and white dots are back to back on the same sheet. 

I cut the DSP to the regular size for a top layer - 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" - and cut it in half diagonally. 

I layered them on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (CS) that I'd cut to the regular size I use for the middle layer - 5 5/8" x 4" - and cut it in half diagonally. 

If you choose to do this design, you'll need to do two. Once you cut the sheet in half diagonally, when you turn one half over, it'll be the same triangle as the first one.  

The sentiment is from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Set. I used this on one of my recent cards and I explained how I'd cut my stamp in half. See the Thank You cards I posted on Tuesday, 9th May 2017.

I stamped one sentiment using Melon Mambo Ink and the other one using Basic Black Archival Ink. 

I die cut the sentiment using the no. 3 die from the circles Stitched Shapes Framelits, and adhered it to a no. 6 scalloped Layering Circle Framelits Die in Basic Black CS. Then I layered it onto a no. 7 straight cut circle die from the same die set. 

I finished it off by adding a strip of three Basic Pearls under the YOU. 

Inside the card I inserted a layer of Whisper White CS and decorated it with two strips of the same DSP that I found in my folder of scraps. 

This meant I went over the One Sheet Wonder but I could have stamped an image instead! I think I can be excused this little bit of cheating! LOL!

I hope you have a great weekend. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
