Sale-A-Bration One Sheet Wonders

Mel has a challenge on her blog this week to make a One Sheet Wonder, which I have never done before, so thought I'd join in. If you haven't heard of a One Sheet Wonder before, it is simply one sheet of cardstock that you have stamped all over, then cut/punched to use on cards. I have used the Sale-A-Bration stampset called Botanical Blooms that can be yours for FREE, by simply spending $100 on Stampin' Up! products before 28th Feb 2009.

Generally you would stamp a whole A4 sheet, so would be able to make up quite alot of cards, but here I have only used an A5 sheet.

This card has been CASEd from the very talented Teneale - I don't think I have seen one card that she has made that I haven't LOVED!

I have CASEd this one from Sue - I love her innovative use of stamps.

And lastly this one has been CASEd from Beate - who is a German demonstrator & really makes me wish I could read German as she has some great projects on her blog.
Stampsets: Botanical Blooms, Yummy, Fast & Fun Notes, Short & Sweet
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White
Inks: Sage Shadow, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink
Accessories: Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Scallop Square Punch, Scalloped Edge Punch, Small & Large Oval Punches

I had so much fun that I thought I'd make up the same cards in a different colour theme & really love how this lot turned out so made a matching card folder.

Here is the folder opened, I also stamped some matching envelopes. You can find the instructions for the folder on Makeesha's website.
Stampset: Botanical Blooms
Cardstock: Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Apple Cied DSP (retired)
Ink: Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chocolate Taffeta Ribbon, Vanilla Wide Grosgrain Ribbon
Punches: Scallop Square, Scalloped Edge, Large Oval, Small Oval
