As promised, here are the eight cards I made using the ONE SHEET WONDER template from yesterday's post. Did any of you print it out and try it? If so I'd love to see what you did.

Before I go any further let me apologize for all the extra spacing between cards. Blogger has a mind of it's own when it comes to where to put spaces and how many to add. I tried and tried to fix it - but finally thought "what the heck" and left it the way it is. Now - on to the cards.

I used Stampin'Up! Product almost exclusively for these cards. I began with a sheet of 8.5 x 11 Very Vanilla cardstock and randomly stamped specks in Real Rust using a stamp for the Itty Bitty Backgrounds set. Next I stamped the oakleaf & acorn image from the "Lovely as a Tree" set in Chocolate Chip. Using a craft sponge I applied More Mustard, Real Rust, and Perfect Plum. After cutting into pieces using the ONE SHEET WONDER template I sponged around the edges of each piece in Soft Suede and added touches of Tempting Turquoise to each piece.

The base card for each is SU! Soft Suede stamped with Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Chocolate Chip and the accent pieces are Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay.


Needs a bit of tweaking. I think I will move the
ribbon so it follows the diagonal line instead of
cutting the card in half and possibly place some.
mini brads vertically in the lower right corner.

I forgot to add sponging along the torn edge of the Dusty Durango Cardstock. Otherwise I'm happy with it the way it is.


This is a little different than planned on the layout. Someone threw away the long piece of
cardstock that was supposed to be used behind
the three main pieces. Ooooops!

I like this layout alot too. It is actually 3 same size squares but the layout makes it look like a square and a rectangle.

If you use the template, make sure to cut and use all three squares. Otherwise the "rectangle" will be to short.

The only card using non-SU! product. I didn't have the
brown buttons. Oh well. This card needs a little sponging
around the torn egdes too.

That's my 8. Let me see what you can do.

Thanks for visiting -
and until next time -
Happy Stamping!

This is great. I like your fall theme. I have a question. The template looks like there are also 3 pieces labled I. Do you have a I layout as well? Elizabeth
