My Last Post of the Personal Challenge Day 9 and One Sheet Wonder Cards

I decided I would finish my own Personal Blog Challenge with a Bang!  And I would give five cards -- similar but different. I chose to do a set of One Sheet Wonder cards.   I chose to do a 6 inch by 6 inch card stock One Sheet Wonder  from which to cut the pieces for the five cards I would do.

This is  the set of five cards I made. To give the varying shades of color on the card stock I cut up I used 4 colors of the Art Anthology Colorations sprays.  Then I randomly stamped the couple, the small suit case and the words from the Technique Junkie stamp set Vintage Travel Cases -  And of course all five cards are stamped with Vintage Travel Cases - I will give you the information on the verses for each card individually.  All stamps used on these cards are Technique Junkie stamps.  I will give you the direct link for each verse stamp.

 And this is the cutting diagram I made up for these cards.  The x's represent areas I did not use.

And now for each individual card -- Card One.

Card One uses the four 1 x 1-1/2 inch pieces of cut card stock.  Plus I layered each small piece on green and then all four on one piece of  Rich Razzleberry.  The verse stamp is Technique Junkie Stamp Dance in the Rain -

Card Two uses the one of the 1-3/4 by 3 inch pieces of card stock.  It is layered on green and then on the purple color.  The verse is from the Mae West Sentiments -  I used twisted yarn and a flower sprayed with the purple Art Anthology Colorations spray.  The clock is tied on underneath the bow.

Card Three  -- The one inch squares are used here, each mounted on green and then layered on a yellow sheet of patterned background paper, which is layered on white, then on purple, then on white, and then on green. The verse is Kind Word -

Card Four uses one of the 2 - 1/4 x 3 inch piece of stock, layered on purple, layered on green, and then layered on a patterned piece of background paper.  Ribbons and beads embellish the focal image.  The verse is from the Mae West Sentiments -

And finally Card Five uses the two remaining larger pieces -- the 1- 3/4 x 3 inches, and the 2 x 3 inch pieces. They were mounted on purple card stick and then on green stock. Then positioned on a multi-colored piece of  background paper.  I wish you could see those colors.  I tied a ribbon around all but the base card stock and centered the bow over the the spot where the two sections overlap.  I heated the bow with a heat gun for just a few seconds in order to get ribbon to get a crinkled vintage look. Then I adhered several burgundy ribbon rosettes over the knot in the bow with glue dots.  I put one more by the bead swirl.  The verse comes from the set Thing I want to Do -  This set has just a lot of fun sayings.  I love it!

So during the month on February I hope I have inspired you to think outside the box a bit.  I hope it has caused to at least think about buying this set Vintage Travel Cases - .

And tomorrow -- well that is a new Blog Hop Day for the March Releases!  I wonder what will be in store for us tomorrow!

Have a wonderful day -- and get inky!
