Quick Cards--Attempt #1

Monday's Technique Lover's Challenge was to make "quick cards" (cards in less than 15 min each. No sweat, eh? One would think so anyway!

I decided that I would use a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) to do this. I was HEAVILY influenced by the OSW cards made by Michelle Wooderson!! This is definitely a case of CASE-ing. (so please check out her website).

First I made the base sheet. The way I determined the colors, was by looking at the cardstock and ribbons I have on hand and using those colors.

I cut the stamped papers into 4-4" squares, and 2- 4.25" x 3" pieces. I stamped the sentiment pieces, matted them, added the ribbon, and some stickles and assembled the cards:


I have absolutely no idea if these were quick cards since I was interrupted numerous times in making these cards. My little dd is suffering from allergies and croup and needed lots of hugs and attention, so these cards had to wait. Thankfully I was following Michelle's plan so I could come back to them and pick up my train of thought very easily.

Materials (all SU! unless otherwise noted):

  • Stamps: Mixed Bouquet, Happy Harmony, Sincerely Salutations, Little Pieces
  • Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Cool Caribbean, Only Orange, Gable Green
  • Ink: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Cool Caribbean, Pumpkin Pie, Gable Green, Green Galore
  • Accessories: Stickles, Ribbon (Walmart), Decorative scissors (no source)

These cards are for my older dd, my niece, and some girls from church that are going to camp next week. Thankfully this OSW technique enabled me to make a bunch of cards at once.

Thank you for stopping by. Please stop by Michelle's Mish Mash and admire her work and leave her a comment or two.
