One Sheet Wonder with Gingham Gala DSP

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and easy One Sheet Wonder using the Gingham Gala 6” x 6” DSP! I don’t know about you, but I am always on the lookout for great OSW’s that I can utilize as much DSP as possible and so I’m going to show you how I made two cards from one sheet of the DSP! This is not only a great way to use up your DSP, but you can easily make several cards to keep on hand for any occasion.

I first started with a piece of the Gingham Gala DSP in Daffodil Delight, cut ¾” off one side (5 ¼” x 6”), turned the DSP, and cut the 6” side in half or at 3”. This will give you two pieces measuring 3” x 5 ¼” and then one piece measuring ¾” x 6”:

I then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 2” x 5 ¼” and using both bokeh dot stamps from Beauty Abounds, stamp the larger dots in Smokey Slate ink and the smaller dots in Daffodil Delight ink:

For the card front, you will use the coordinating Daffodil Delight Organdy Ribbon*, Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins, and the small butterfly dies from the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies in Black Foil Sheets. TIP**I cut a 1” x 12” strip of the Black Foil Sheet, cut it in half (6”), cut a piece of the Multipurpose Adhesive sheet at 1” x 6”, and placed it on the back of the foil sheet prior to cutting. This makes adhering those little intricate pieces easy:

To assemble the card front, I adhered the stamped cardstock to the DSP and then adhered this to Daffodil Delight cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. Remove the adhesive sheet backing from the butterflies to adhere, place 3 of the adhesive-backed sequins in random places, and then tie the organdy ribbon into a bow and adhere with a glue dot:

The inside sentiment is on a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock, the butterflies from Beauty Abounds are stamped in Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight inks, and the sentiment from the stamp set is stamped in Smoky Slate ink:

*Unfortunately, the organdy ribbon from the SAB catalog is no longer available, however, here is an alternative using the Daffodil Delight ¼” Double-Stitched Ribbon:

Here are some more cards that I made exactly the same, just made them in Balmy Blue, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist and the second card has an alternative ribbon used in place of the organdy ribbon:

What really makes this card easy is that the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies comes with multiples of the same die! So, you can cut all the butterflies you need for BOTH cards at the same time! You can also leave the inside blank for now and then when you need a card just stamp that sentiment! 

Did you notice that you are left with five ¾” strips of the DSP?? Then be sure to join me next time as I show you a card to make with those!!

Valentine’s Day Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s Valentine’s Day Theme Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller, I’m an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia, and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner! Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop or you have hopped on over from another site, thank you for letting me share my creation today! So, let’s get started!

For this blog hop, I thought I would create a sweet and simple treat bag which is easy to make using the Gift Bag Punch Board. This bag also includes a gift tag, which is another great way to use up those scraps! If you do not have the Gift Bag Punch Board and are interesting is seeing how it works, you can watch the video here.

For the bag size, I chose to use the small size, cut at piece of 8 ½” x 11” piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock down to 6” x 10”, and followed the punch board instructions for cutting and scoring. The multiple heart stamp from Forever Lovely was stamped on the front and back of the bag in Lovely Lipstick ink:

I used the 2nd largest elongated heart die from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits to cut out one side of the bag:

I adhered a piece of Window Sheet, cut at 2 5/8” x 3 7/8”, over the cut out (on the inside) with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I put this aside with some stamp blocks on top to dry:

Using one of the leftover pieces of Lovely Lipstick cardstock, cut a piece at 2” x 4”, punch one end using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and use the scalloped edgelit die from Be Mine Stitched Framelits on the other end. The 2” x 3” piece of DSP is from All My Love DSP, large heart is from the bag cut out, the small heart is from using the coordinating die from Be Mine and the sheet of All My Love DSP, the sentiment is from Beauty Abounds stamp set in Lovely Lipstick ink on a ¾” piece of Whisper White cardstock with one end punched with the Banner Triple Punch, and enough Silver Metallic Thread to wrap around your fingers a few times:

Adhere the DSP to the tag and then layer the two hearts on top. Place some adhesive on the back of the sentiment piece to secure the metallic thread and then adhere on top of the hearts with dimensionals:

By now the glue should be dry for the window sheet, apply adhesive to assemble the bag together. I put some Hershey’s Kisses in the bag, secured the top with a binder clip, and then used Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to thread thru the holes and tie into a bow:

The tag is then attached to the bag using Silver and Whisper White Baker’s Twine:

This is a fun and easy way to make little treat bags for Valentine’s Day, whether it’s for family, friends, co-workers, or even classroom treats! If candy is not an option for you, other little goodies can easily fit in this bag.
