A Sketch and One-Sheet Wonder


Here's the sketch from OWH's Stars & Stamps challenge #174 and this is my take on it...

I love this Lawn Fawn Valentine set and I think it makes great cards for every day as well as Valentine's day. I'm using some retired SU! dsp I've been hoarding, along with some vanilla cardstock. I tweaked the sketch just a tad and added tiny hearts because it just looked better than a strip of  vertical cardstock. The embossing folder is CB decorative tiles and the ribbon was from my stash. The image was colored with Copics.
I still have half a pack of this pretty SU! Haiku paper left, so I decided to try Seongsook Duncan's one-sheet wonder tutorial found on her blog, and on the Stars & Stamps tutorial page here.

Here's one design that shows the embellishments I used, including a die-cut flower matching those in the design of the dsp, along with a die-cut circle and a punched flower. The sentiment was done with SU! teeny tiny wishes, and punches. I attached the flowers with a tiny brad to the card front, and then adhered the card front to the base. Here are the 8 cards I made out of one sheet of paper...

I used old olive, and some dark orange card stock for the die cuts, flowers & mats and an assortment of brads from my stash.
Thanks for this great tutorial Seongsook - it is a great way to use up that dsp we're hoarding, and there are no scraps left to worry about using!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your week!

I looked at this sketch a couple of different times Sunday and could not come up with anything in my mind that looked good so I decided not to partake int the challenge. I love the idea you had to use the hearts instead of a strip. Maybe you've given me more to think about ow. Thank you. A very nice job with Seongsook's tutorial. She would be proud. I really like that little flower. Enjoy your day. I'm off to breakfast with a friend (which will probably last until lunch- usually does), then I have a hairdresser appointment. It's going to beautiful here today but I will be spending most of it indoors. That's OK though.

Your cards came beautiful! The images and pattern papers are all wonderful choices. I like how you simplified it and it still works. Your other cards just as nice plus you used the tutorial which I even have yet to try!
