Hey everyone!  I know, it's been a few days since I've updated *bad girl*, but I'm back and today I'm going to share four cards with you, how exciting, right?!  Well, maybe not, but here goes:

I decided to make someone sheet wonder cards.  I only ended up making four cards instead of the traditional six cards.  Just in case you have no idea what I'm talking about, one sheet wonder cards (or OSW cards) are cards that are made using patterned paper that you create by randomly stamping stamps all over an entire sheet of card stock.  You can then color in your images or if you are using solid images you can stamp using different color ink pads.  I made my OSW paper by randomly stamping several of the snowflake stamps using different colors inks.  (I have my supply list posted at the bottom of this blog post). 

Below is a group photo of the four cards I made using my OSW paper.

The card I posted below uses my OSW paper for my background and I then stamped a larger snowflake and layered it onto my brocade blue card stock.  I punched all along the edges of my brocade blue card stock using my scallop trim border punch and my scallop trim corner punch.  I used this tutorial I found on Gretchen's blog to help me figure out how to use these two punches to create my punched border.

I know it's hard to see in my photo, but I did want to mention that I added two rows of paper piercing along the bottom of my card.  I also added a few brads in the center of the snowflakes in my OSW card stock of my background.  My main snowflake had a raised up center that I stamped, cut out, and placed over top of my main snowflake using a dimensional.

This card I have posted below also uses the same scallop trim border and corner punches for my brocade blue layers.  Again, I stamped my main snowflake image and then I placed a sliver brad in the center.  I have added silver cording onto this card and just along the right hand side I have three score lines using my score-pal (you might not be able to see this in my photo).

I really like the layout of my next card and I tend to use this layout quite often.  Again, I used the same basic concept using my scallop trim punches and on this card I also added silver cording and two rows of paper piercing just along the bottom of my card.  I stamped my main snowflake image and then I stamped it again so that I could just cut the center, add a sliver brad, and place it on top using a dimensional. 

And last, but not least I have one final card using my OSW card stock.  This one was really easy to make and I decided not to add another snowflake for my main image- I just used my pattern paper as my focal point on this card.  Again, I decided to add some silver cording and I have added three rows of dry embossing using my score-pal.  I should have added a sentiment along the bottom of this card, but it slipped my mind.

Well, that's about it for today!  Tomorrow I'll be posting a Halloween card I made using a $2 stamp I found in the clearance bin at AC Moore so be sure to check back tomorrow!  Have a great rest of the day!

ALL of these are just wonderful! Now I'm off to check out the tutorial on how to use that punch and make it come out right! I actually did one not long ago - but it was just an accident that it came out right!
