Borderline Buddies OSW....a what?

Borderline Buddies Wednesday
 
 
 
It's another Wednesday....and another Borderline Buddies.
 
This week Leanna shouted out the idea.....a OSW....a What?  lol
 
It's the One Sheet Wonder Idea....I think most of you if you have been with me for a while, have heard of One Sheet Wonders. 
 
It's where you take a piece of cardstock and stamp on it all over kind of like making your own Designer Series Paper and then cut up the sheet and create a stack of cards....or whatever you wish to create!  It's a simple concept....and if you cannot seem to find the paper that you are looking for.....create your own!  It's that easy!
 
Let's see what Leanna has come up with this week:
 
 
Now...my turn.....
 
Okay....so I started this post...and then was going to add to it when I created my OSW....well...phew....it was quite a project...if I must say....
So...I was online looking for inspiration and what to do and I came across a 6 x 6 OSW created by Deb Valden. Her web site is www.stampladee.com   It was very inspiring...so I decided instead of stamping my own...I would use DSP....Designer Series Paper.
 
I absolutely love the Fruit Stand DSP...the colors are amazing...and the prints are stunning.
 
Here is the template which I copied.
On the left is the cut up DSP....On the right is the template on how to cut your DSP.
 
The base of the cards is Whisper White...and you get six cards in all with using a 6x6 DSP.  Our DSP is 12 x 12..so if you really wanted to, you could end up with 24 cards if using the entire sheet of DSP.

 
Now for the measurements of the other layers:
Base Cards:  All base cards are cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2"
Flirty Flamingo Cardstock
9 pieces that measure 1 3/4 x 3 1/4
2 pieces that measure 2 1/4 x 2 1/4
3 pieces that measure 1 3/4 x 1 3/4
4 pieces that measure 1/2 x 4 1/4
2 pieces that measure 1/2 x 5 1/2
2 pieces that measure 1 x 4 3/4
Whisper White Additional Pieces:
4 pieces that measure 1 1/2 x 3
2 pieces that measure 2 x 2
 
 
And here are the cards...all six of them....

 
The only stamp set I used was Garden in Bloom.  I did use little scraps of the In Color Ribbon along with little pieces of Whisper White and stamped the extra butterflies and bees.
 





 
I don't think it is showing up but I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the butterflies, bees and flowers here and there....these cards are really stunning in person....and I love them...hope you do as well!
 
This idea makes a great class idea...if you are a demonstrator...or a way to create a stack of cards in almost no time at all.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed this week's challenge...I have to say..I wasn't prepared for it....but it's been a while without a challenge.....
 
 
Hope you have a SUper stampin' day!
 
Glimmer Hugs!

Stampin' Up! Ultimate Blog Hop in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 I'm super excited to be a part of this fun blog hop.... When I heard of this fun hop from Janet Wakeland....I had to jump at the chance to be a part of this.  
 Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important cause...just just for the month of October for it should be brought to our attention every day....but we especially have made October the month to remind us of how important it is to be tested.....
On a personal note, two years back I wasn't feeling well.  I went for the blood work, x-rays and all the normal types of testing....I was then sent for an abdominal ultrasound and there was something that showed up....so to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT scan...well....it was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left kidney....so after discussing it at length with my urologist the decision was made to remove the kidney. We didn't know at the time what it was, malignant, non malignant, had to spread, was it encapsulat…

Out With The Old...In With the New Blog Hop

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW BLOG HOP
Thanks for stopping by today....I would like to welcome to our Blog Hop....we are saying good-bye to the old...and welcoming in the new!  Are you ready?
Let's put on our hopping shoes and go!
So...let's take a look....can you see what's old and what's new?

First off...the bear was used from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set Item # 142043 along with the coordinating punch Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Item # 140396. 

The new is the Lift Me Up Bundle Item # 144711 (w) and 144712 (c).  The stamp set is Lift Me Up and the Thinlits are Up & Away...the clouds were also done using the Thinlits Dies. 

I also used our Cardstock Vellum and cut out the coordinating pieces for the back of the balloon...along with the basket thinlit. 

I love this little bear....he's not just for babies and Christmas...I can see so many other things done using him.
Thanks for stopping by....time to hop on over to the next blog!

This is a SUper easy home decor' project to create.... All you need is: A 12 x 12 frame of your choice (I got mine at a big box store with a 50% off coupon) Basic Black 12 x 12 cardstock (#124267) Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (#141642) I was going to be a downloadable file to create this frame, but it's so simple...so I just posted the information here.... Just trim down the 6x6 DSP to fit the frame as desired...it's that simple. You can even change the inside picture for all the different seasons by using any of our DSP (which, by the way, they are on sale for this month) If you do not have a demonstrator, come on over …
