Artistically Inked, Forever Fern, One Sheet Wonder Stamping Technique

I LOVE "One Sheet Wonders", don't you? You stamp all over a sheet of card stock and then cut it up and have lots of cards (depending on how much you cut!). For this one I was able to make four cards.  I found this card here and I did have to make some changes due to not having all the items that were used on the original piece.  There's a video so you can follow along.

To start out there's a word image that I didn't have so I ended up using the long watercolor type image in the "Artistically Inked" set with Soft Sea Foam ink. It gave me the same effect. The purpose was to tone the brightness of the white card stock down some.  

Then the large flowers were stamped using Blushing Bride ink. The centers of the flowers were stamped using Daffodil Delight ink. The smaller roses were added using Pale Papaya ink.

Next the larger leaves were added using Soft Sea Foam ink and Pear Pizzazz ink was used for the small leaf clusters that came from the "Forever Fern" set.

There's a cluster of three small flowers in the "Artistically Inked" set that were stamped using Pool Party ink. 

And the dotted images were added using the stamp from the "Forever Fern" set and Crumb Cake ink and then some more were stamped using Blushing Bride ink.

The gold part of the large flowers was added using the flower highlights from the"All Things Fabulous" set. I didn't have the stencil that was used on the original card so I looked through my sets to see what would work. I inked it up with Versa Mark and stamped it and then I inked it up again and turned it 180 degrees and stamped it again. Then the Heat and Stick powder was added and then the gold foil on top of that.  I am happy with how mine turned out. 

And since I didn't have the stencil I couldn't do the last step of adding the design to the open areas.  I was still happy with how mine turned out.

Once you're done you cut the card stock to 4" x 5-1/4".  Trying to keep the white corners. What you cut off in the middle can be used inside the cards.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Crumb Cake card stock. My card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.  A 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Blushing Bride card stock was cut for the layer and then the stamped piece was added. The Blushing Bride piece was set in place using Dimensionals. The focal piece was taped in place, or glued if you prefer.

The words are from the "Artistically Inked" set and were stamped using Soft Suede ink. They were die cut using a die from the "Ornate Frames" set. The words were set in place with Dimensionals and the card was done.

What I liked best about this is how I was able to end up with 4 beautiful cards.  Each one unique in it's own way. This could be used for many other occasions too. So fun and so pretty!  I don't know how quick it is to make, it took me a while because I kept stopping the video to get the items I needed for the next step. But if I were to make another sheet right now it wouldn't take long at all!

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop by today and see this fun technique,
