One Sheet Wonder

These are my "One Sheet Wonder" cards we started at Jami's club night this past Friday. We made 3 cards at her house, and then I brought the rest of my sheet home and had fun over the weekend making 4 more cards. Seven cards out of one sheet of stamped cardstock. The base cardstock was Vanilla and using the Stampin Up inks: Artichoke, Eggplant, Pumpkin, Rose Red, and Amethyst, and the stamp sets: A Beautiful Thing, Carte Postale, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Happy Harmony, Fancy Flexible Phrases, the Baroque Wheel, and a set from The Angel Company that I can't remember the name of, but it's something like "Girly Girl." (If anyone knows, please let me know!)
Here is a close up of one of the cards we started at Jami's house and then I added a special little tag to it when I got home. It uses both Stampin Up Circle Punches (1 1/4 & 1 3/8) and both Stampin Up Oval punches layered on top of each other, and then 2 brads added on top. The next card I've highlighted shows a few added pieces of ribbon, some brads and some corner stickers on the main sentiment image. Feel free to visit my splitcoast gallery (located on the sidebar) to see each card up close. Also, see Jami's blog for all the original details: It's back to work for me tomorrow after about 9 days off, so I'm a little sad about that. I've greatly enjoyed not feeling the pressure of getting up and getting out the door in such a rush every morning, and I can tell my back, my neck, my knees, and all the other parts of my body that have arthitis, have enjoyed the break too! Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!
