Stampin' Up!: Flight of the Butterfly

I held a class on how to do One Sheet Wonders. These are the cards that we created.


The way a one sheet wonder works, is that you start with a plain sheet of cardstock (you can also use a piece of DSP but I wanted to stamp!). Then you stamp the cardstock full of images. You want to make sure that the paper is quite full because once you cut it, you may end up with white space that you don't really want. Here is what my 6x6 cardstock looked like before I cut it up to use on my cards.


After you stamp, then you cut it up to use on the cards. There are lots of people who have shared their templates. I'm not sure which/who's pattern I used to cut this up. I can get you the measurements if you really want them! Let me know in the comments!

Here are the close ups of the 8 cards that this 6x6 made.








Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black
Cardstock: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Pool Party, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Accessories: Grosgrain ribbon: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Pool Party ribbon, 
Wide oval punch, Butterfly punch, sponges, Perfect Polka dots embossing folder

The Flight of the Butterfly, all the grosgrain ribbon, the butterfly punch and Sincere Salutations are all retiring! Don't miss out on these fun things!

Happy Stampin'!

The one sheet wonders are always so fun! You never know how the pattern will look on the cards so every card is a surprise!
