Hello friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend! We’ve had such beautiful weather and it was nice to be out in it! Warm temps are soon to follow, so I know I’ll be crafting indoors then!
Today, I’m sharing something I did for a challenge a couple of months ago and really enjoyed the process of just creating using a single sheet of pretty floral papers in my stash. Have you ever heard of or tried the “One Sheet Wonder” method?
I only have this ‘overhead shot’ of all the cards I made because I wasn’t blogging at this time, but if you notice in each one of these cards, I have used the same floral pattern in each one. I’ve pulled out a single 6×6 piece of decorative paper from the Brutus Monroe Farmhouse Floral Paper Pad.
For the top and bottom left cards, you can see that I’ve used the diaganol pieces from the *”One Sheet Wonder” template. For the top one, I’ve just used an image and sentiment from the Farmhouse Friends stamp set. For the bottom card, I actually cut out a floral image from another piece of the same paper pad I’ve used for the template as the focal for my design. (It’s a great way to use up more of the scraps you may have!)
(*See the diagram below for how I cut out a template from the 6×6 sheet to use on my cards.)
For the top and bottom right cards, I’ve taken a couple of the strips cut from the *”One Sheet Wonder” template and then made it my own by cutting it up for a banner and then just separating in half to make a unique design on my card. The top one uses the Eggcellent Gnomes stamp set and the bottom one uses the Take Flight stamp set.
Basically, all I needed to do was sit with my pattern paper and match up the colors to create cards with. It was a great thing to have as a starting point with just a piece of pattern paper in my hand. So if you’re struggling a bit, this is great way to get going! Give it a try!
Here’s the template that I used of the cut out pieces from the one 6×6 sheet of pattern paper. Please feel free to use this as an idea for yourself to get started.
Another idea that I used for this one is that this floral pattern has several different colors in it to work from, so I was able to choose a different color for each of my cards. I believe I could’ve gotten even more than just the 4 cards too!
Hope you’ve enjoyed my post today sharing a little tip for you when you might be struggling! I’ve learned that just getting started can be half the battle sometimes!🤔 Thanks for dropping in and I’ll see you again soon!!
