I was having a wander round the web the other day and came across this fabulous idea of making 16 cards with one sheet of designer paper. Here is the link to Ink it Up with Jessica Taylor.
Also, whilst watching the Olympics on the weekend, I sorted out most of my stamps. Putting them onto storage sheets and into folders. Doing this enabled me to see stamps I had totally forgotten about. I think I might un-mount my wooden stamps and put them on foam, then I will be able to put those in a folder too.
However, lets get back to these cards! Me being me, I don't always follow rules very well and as I don't like white space, I just had to add another sheet of designer paper into the pot :-)
The dotty paper is from Fancy Pants Designs called Little Sprout. The blue fan paper is from a Recollections stack called Cherry Blossoms.
Here is the first of three out of the sixteen cards. I also didn't use the thin strips of paper, I used ribbon instead. The sentiments on the first two cards are from two different magazine freebies.
The butterflies are from an InkaDinkaDo set, as is the "Thinking of You" sentiment.
The tiny little butterflies are from a Hollie Hobbie set, called Natures Walk (also a magazine freebie).
For the inside I added the same base layers as the front, plus the white central piece for writing on. There are those teeny tiny butterflies again :-) I did the same for all three cards. All the layers, on all the cards, have been edged with CTMH Sorbet ink.
I am so pleased with how these have turned out. Glad I didn't leave the base of the card white!
There you have it, the first three done. Only thirteen more to go :-)
