Recently I shared with you a card I'd made using Stampin' Up!'s Delicate Doilies stamps.  I mentioned I'd made a "one sheet wonder".  I had stamped the doilies all over an A5 piece of Whisper White card, and was able to make three cards out of my handmade patterned paper.  Today I'm sharing with you the other two cards that resulted from the doily panel.

I made one card with a Certainly Celery focus.  I enjoyed making this one, because it's not a green I normally favour.  It pairs beautifully with Elegant Eggplant, though.  I used a purple Sharpie to colour some of Stampin' Up!'s Basic Pearls; such a sweet embellishment to use as flower centres, I think.  Here's my card, using my trusty Top Note die:

Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Trendy Trees
Card: Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant, Pool Party, Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise stampin' pads
Other: Top Note die, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Whisper White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Itty Bitty shapes punch, Basic Pearls, sponge daubers, mini glue dots

My third card is a bit more 'regal' looking, with Elegant Eggplant (such a rich purple) taking centre stage.  I stamped one of the doily images repeatedly on the base card, in Elegant Eggplant ink, and used a white gel pen to lighten the overall look a little.

Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Bring on the Cake
Card: Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery, Pool Party, Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise stampin' pads
Other: XL Oval punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Basic Rhinestones, stampin' dimensionals, Whisper White satin ribbon, White organza ribbon, mini glue dots, sponge daubers, white gel pen, sticky strip

  Which is your favourite?   Out of all three cards, I think I like the last one the best.  Let me know what you think!  I love the different looks achieved by using the one piece of card.

  2. This is a fantastic technique Christine & your pretty OSW has resulted in three great cards. Love how you have stepped up each one with the dainty, blingy details. Hugs :)

  3. Cool card, love the colours. I've never made a one sheet wonder but you've made it look fabulous!
