Valentine Wonder!

Hello?  Is there anybody out there???  Oh! There you are, so nice to see you again!!!  I’ve been creating away the last few days.  It’s hard to finish projects when you only have here and there time.  I however have dedicated myself to be far more creative and productive this year.  Why, after this post I’ll be getting right back to it! 

 

So what have I been working on you ask?  Oh yes that was why I came looking for you!  It’s a Valentine Wonder!  A One Sheet Wonder to be specific!  These things have been around in one form or fashion for years now.  These were actually made for my stamping date with my gal pal Kathy.  It’s so much easier to understand a concept like an OSW when you have samples!

This particular one made 10 cards from one piece of 8 1/2 x 11” patterned paper.  If you aren’t familiar with a OSW it basically allows you to create an almost waist free collection of pieces for card fronts.  The bases, embellishments and other layers come from additional supplies.

Love the flowers lol, so puffy and pretty!  Told ya, more flowers in my projects this year Smile.

Simple layers and embellishments can make for some cute cards!

A little bling here, a little ribbon there and viola’ you’ve got 10 cards in one piece of paper.  Now if you use paper that is double sided you can have cards that look totally different but still complementary!  You could also use a OSW to make a collection of clean and simple note cards, birthday or thank you cards to give as a set!

Well the solar flares have my creative sparks flying today, so I’m off like a flash to get some more ink on my fingers!
