Blooms & Bliss One Sheet Wonder Cards

I am in a One Sheet Wonder club run by Jessica Taylor and each month she gives us a new template to use.  These are the cards I made today using this month's template.  I love the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper, especially the blue and green sheets.


This paper's colors are Island Indigo, Mint Macaron, and Sahara Sand.  I punched out flowers using the Blossom Bunch Punch, Flower Fair dies, and Botanical Builder Framelits.  Various stamp sets were used for the sentiments and embellishments:  Greatest Greetings, Awesomely Artistic, Flourishing Phrases, Birthday Blooms, Rose Wonder, Thoughtful Banners, Birthday Banners for, and Floral Phrases.

4 of the cards are 4x4 cards for gift enclosures.  I also used the Layering Ovals framelits, Rose Garden framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, and Bitty Butterfly punch.


One Sheet Wonders are a great way to make a bunch of cards using only 1 sheet of 12 x 12 Designer Paper (or paper you stamp yourself).  If you like to hoard your pretty papers (like I tend to do), this is a great way to make cards without using a lot of the pretty paper. I got 10 cards out of that one sheet!  

Happy Stamping!

Happy Flag Day!

Today is Flag Day and also the US Army's birthday.  My husband spent over 29 years in the army and retired in 2001.  

Long may it wave!

Designer Paper BOGO Specials--FIESTA

There are ONLY 3 weeks left for the Designer Series Paper BOGO offers.  What a great way to stock up on pretty paper!  I love the quality of Stampin' Up!'s paper--double-sided and color coordinated!  And on each pack of paper, they tell you the coordinating ink and card stock colors.  Easy peasy to make beautiful cards!


Today I am featuring the Festive Birthday paper.



Here are a couple of cards I made using this paper


Both of these cards use the Birthday Fiesta Stamp Set (141500 -- page 11 in your annual catalog) and available as a BUNDLE (stamps and matching dies).  You can check those out here:


Happy Stamping!
