One Sheet Wonder Swirly Bird Quick Cards

Hi Friends! Wednesday already and the middle of November. Where does the time go? Today we're expecting winds up to 80-100 klms which will also drop the temperature to -20. MINUS 20! In a word: yuck. I'm a Leo. Us lions prefer the warm sunshine! LOL However, I've got the wood stove on and the house is cozy. It's only 7:30am but I've already played ball with my dogs outside, grabbed the ladder to take down my wind chimes and remembered to take the hose off the house and put inside the garage. Now it's time to pour another coffee and get to work - I've got a full day ahead of things to do. I sure love my job as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!

Today I'm sharing an oldie but a goodie, because it may be new to YOU! It's called a One Sheet Wonder (OSW). I love making cards using the OSW technique! Basically, you're using your stamps to decorate and cover an entire 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of Whisper White card stock to cut into cards. You can also do this with a piece of 12" x 12" card stock and there are many templates you can use to cut it into multiple cards, bookmarks, labels and more.

There's yet another version of the One Sheet Wonder, using Designer Series Paper, that you can cut into pieces to make lots of cards that are quick and easy. I have a few samples of the Designer Series Paper OSW cards, which you can see on my blog post here and video here.

For today's cards I used 8 1/2" x 11" card stock for my One Sheet Wonder, using the Swirly Bird stamp set and the 2018-2020 In Colour ink pads. These cards are quite bright, but for this time of year, I think 'bright' can be a good thing on a gloomy day, don't you?

  1. Wow, these are so nice. I've learned you work like a machine--LOL. The swirls are darling.

    Your weather doesn't sound good. Hey, I'm a Leo too. My passion is to sit on the beach with a good book.
