One Sheet Wonder

The challenge at the NEW 
Back To The Basics and Beyond Challenge
this week is 'Use Your Paper~One Sheet Cards.
Meaning to use a 12 x 12 paper and see how many cards you can 
create with it.

A friend recently gave me a bit of her stamping supplies
and in it was a beautiful pack (one of my favorites) 
of a SU designer paper.
So, instead of putting it away I used one sheet for my cards....
all TWELVE of them.

The card on the left, I added Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive, just dots of it random
then sprinkled with SNS Waterfall glitter, this is a beautiful teal glitter, a favorite of mine.
I did the same thing for the card on the right, but this time using SNS Blue Haze glitter.

I used the backside of the DS paper for a few of them,
card stocks that were already cut and scored,
and a variety of other things (die cuts, ephemera, and others)
that were already die cut, keeping it simple ,
I basically had to just stamp the sentiments.

I looked on Pinterest and saw many, many  ways to
cut your paper,
but in the end went with a simple cut.
These cards took about 2 hours to complete
though I still have the insides to finish up.
The hardest and most timely part was photographing them!
MY photo spot, a light bulb burned out and it seem sin replacing with a new one,
it has changed the lighting entirely
making it difficult to photograph...I will have to figure
it out as I am not getting the same quality pictures I had.

A little bit of FUN news about this NEW challenge
is that I will be joining them as part of the design team,
debuting on May 30th.
I am looking forward to working with this awesome group of ladies!!
And here I was thinking of cutting back on my design teams...
but this just appealed to me as a very fun challenge group!
I liked the fact that it is actually very challenged themed.

Fabulous cards from your one sheet wonder. I remember doing this years ago when I had limited supplies to work with. I usually stamped my own background paper then as well.

Wow, Diane, 12 cards! Now, there's a challenge for the thrifty minded. And here I am trying to use up my huge stash of paper rather than get the most out of it. However, I'd be happy to use even a whole 12 x 12 sheet. I wouldn't mind seeing the pile dwindle a little bit. The paper you used is really cute and so are your cards. Looks like you used up a few other things from your stash, too. Enjoy your new challenge team!
