Beautiful Friendship, Good Morning Magnolia, Thinking of You Card, One Sheet Wonder Card Technique

I have not done a "One Sheet Wonder" (OSW) in years. I found this one on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. You can see the original card here. I ruined the first one because my Blushing Bride ink pad is one of the old fabric ones and the stamp didn't ink up nicely. And it's not like you can do this on the Stamparatus.  Well, I suppose you could but it would take a very long time. I had the stamp on my clear block and I tried to get a nice image but I wasn't having much luck. So I thought I would change colors and it was too dark. Oh, I even changed the color and stamped on top of what I had already stamped and it was SO muddy looking.  UGH.  I wasn't going to give up. I stuck with it and this is what I ended up with.  Usually a OSW is a full sheet of card stock or Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I used a half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  The link also has a video so you can follow along. Here's how I made my cards.

The base of the piece is a half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I used the hydrangea looking image from the "Beautiful Friendship" set and Rococo Rose ink that I stamped off once before stamping on the card stock. Or you can use the Blushing Bride ink pad if you have a nicer pad than mine!  

Next the large rose image was stamped using Seaside Spray ink. It's stamped all over, back to back in some places and over the Rococo Rose images too.

Then the single rose was stamped using So Saffron ink. It's stamped in a lot of the open areas and it's not only a single stamp but a second generation too for that lighter look around the open areas. 

The leaves were stamped using Pear Pizzazz ink and were stamped three times in a row on top of each other but moved up just a little with each stamping. My third generation image didn't show up as well, so I ended up stamping off once and then adding it near the other leaf images.  

And the last thing you stamp is the dots from the "Waterfront" stamp set. So Saffron ink was used to to stamp the dots. 

The words are from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock and die cut using the second smallest "Stitched Circle" dies. 

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Seaside Spray.  Actually I cut two because this OSW will make two cards. I die cut a scalloped circle from the center using the Circle dies. It's one that is just a bit larger than the Stitched circle die. 

The words were taped to the scalloped circle and Dimensionals were added to the back.

The OSW was first cut in half at 4-1/4".  Then I cut it down to 3-7/8" x 5-1/8". I cut on the flowered edges so I could keep the white open area open. Then they were taped to the Seaside Spray piece and that was taped to the front of the card base.

The words were set in place in the open white area and the card was done.  Rhinestones, sequins, enamel dots or anything else you think would look great can be added around the card for some shimmer.  Even some Wink of Stella would be pretty.

I changed the orientation of one of the cards. I thought it looked better that way. You'll know if you make them. 

This was a fun card to make once I got the colors to work for me. And I do regret not doing a full sheet of card stock to make four super quick cards.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see this pretty One Sheet Wonder card,
