I've been stamping for over 2 years now and can you believe I've *never* done a One Sheet Wonder before??? Well I haven't - I've just never got around to it! My friend Lauren (mytime on SCS) was after me to do one - so I cheated and used a sheet of 12x12 patterned paper lol! I finally decided that now was the time to actually *do* one! I had the new Seeing Spots set sitting here just *begging* to be inked up - so I did!
The first try got scrapped as I *hated* the color combo - it just looked icky. *This* combo turned out great tho! Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Crisp, Cool Caribbean, and Marigold Morning. The CS took like 2 minutes to stamp up.
I didn't use a template for the cards. I played it by ear - I think it's more fun that way! I have seen some really good templates on Splitcoast (you can do a search in the Resources forum and I'm sure you'll find some along w/ all kinds of other goodies!)
They didn't take very long to make either - I had to stop and dye some matching marigold ribbon (on the far right card) - and I discovered some interesting tidbits along the way:
#1 - You CAN get "markers" in the new colors! Wanna know how? I used a drop from a re-inker and a blender pen - not only was I able to color directly on the stamps that way (and still had plenty of ink left in the blender pen) - BUT that also works in the color spritzer!! How cool is that? A *dab* into an ink drop is MORE than enough to use when you use the spritzer - I was so giddy when I saw how well this works! Now I so don't care if SU comes out w/ Markers in the new colors - I don't need them! (tho I'd totally buy them if they did lol!) - I *do* wish we could get Craft Pads in the new colors tho - that's my *only* gripe - honest!
#2 - The Color Spritzer is *awesome* once you get the hang of it!! How I use it will go in my next post (prolly old news for some but I was tickled pink when I figured out how to use it properly!)
#3 - You need hardly *any* pressure when distressing CS using the distressor in the SU Cutter Kit - that blade is sharp! I haven't played much w/ the other attachments tho (except to note that the rotary cutting blade is wicked sharp!)
Anywho you can check out my SCS Gallery for close-ups of all the OSW cards. I haven't had a chance yet to upload all my SU cards into an album on here (I'll get to it eventually!).
