Thoughts of Sweet Sorbet

Yesterday I began a One-Sheet-Wonder journey. I've done this before, but found another cutting template, and decided to use it to eliminate some retired DSP. Plus, it will give me a collection of cards I can later use as a gift.

The circle on the bottom card is from the round opening on the top card.

Stamp - Crazy about You, Flower Shop
Cardstock- Basic Black, Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White
DSP - Sweet Sorbet
Ink - Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Pansy punch, Circles Collection thinlits, Stripes embossing folder, Pearl and Rhinestone jewels (colored with Blendabilities), Pool Party ribbon

Sorbet Butterflies

I seem to have a large amount of retired DSP. Because there is always new, ready-to-be-used DSP, I always seem to have an abundant supply of retired stock.

I found a One Sheet Wonder cutting template at QuietFire Creations, and decided to use some of the "old stuff." She used paper with a Christmas pattern, while mine has more of a springtime feel to it. That's the best part of One Sheet Wonder projects; any DSP can be used!

For the next few days, I plan to post several cards I make, utilizing just one sheet of DSP. Please join me and see what I come up with.

Stamp - Butterfly Basics, Everything Eleanor
Cardstock- Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White
DSP - Sweet Sorbet
Ink - Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Summer Starfruit
Accessories - Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches, Elegant Lines embossing folder, Pearl and Rhinestone jewels, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit twine
