What is it about trying to get as many cards as possible out of a single piece of Designer Series Paper? Is it the challenge of “Can I do it?” Is it because it is a test of our creativity? Is it because we want to get as much as we can for our money? The answer is Yes all of that…plus the fun and feeling of accomplishment that we did it!
Almost 4 weeks ago I had ankle surgery to repair a tendon and I was temporarily crafting at our dining room table and not in my craft room…too many stairs to go up and down. So I only had a few things that I had hastily put in a bag for when I felt good enough to craft….The Berry Blessings Stamp Set, Berry Delightful Designer Series paper and some cardstock and ink that matched. I was running out of ideas so new things to do with it, so I decided to make my own One Sheet Wonder.
Blue is one of my favorite colors so I choose the blue paper near the bottom with the blueberries on the front and pretty blue lattice work on the back. Three of the cards used both sides of the paper. Hint: Since you will be using both sides of the same piece of Designer Series Paper, check and make sure that you like both sides! While the majority of Stampin’ Up’s papers coordinate front to back, some patterns might not work as well as others.
As you can see I stamped the images from the Berry Blessings Stamp set in Night of Navy Ink and used Granny Apple Green for the leaves. These cards used only one side of the paper. And if you looked closely you can see that I also stamped the insides with a few leaves and berries too!
I found a cutting design on the internet, but made up my own ways to put the pieces on the cards. The one I found used this same design, but it only made 4 cards, but I figured out a way to make 5! I have tried to find it again, but can’t, so if this is your cutting design, please let me know so I can give you credit). This is the cutting diagram for the 6” x 6” piece of Designer Series Paper:
And this is the diagram for cutting the 6 1/2” x 6 3/4” piece of cardstock. These pieces are used as mats for the matching Designer Series Paper cuts in the diagram above.
And of course you will need a few other supplies too that I have listed below
