Back to Basics- use your papers

The challenge over at Back to Basics and more is to use your papers.
Based upon the 'one sheet wonder' theory, where you have to try to see how many cards you can make using 12x12 sheet of patterned paper.
I have seen this on Pinterest quite a few time and kept saying to myself I must give it a go.
I managed to make nine cards and here they are..

Now if I were to do this again I would choose a more multi coloured paper, then I could vary the backing card, luckily I had a lot of snippets of the backing card, which is SU Melon Mambo and also the white card I used for the die cut flowers were all white snippets.
I have left the cards without sentiments for use at a later date.
The card with the square die cut has very small punched flowers around the edge, punched from very small strips left over from the papers.
I shall also enter these into the snippets playground. week 326. Not dipped my toe in there for ages so expect that Parsnip will totally ignore me.

Thanks for popping by.

Well done on getting so many cards from the one sheet. Parsnip will no doubt be scrutinising them to report back to Miss Di. I have the instructions somewhere on how to do it with a 6" sq. A project to follow in my old age. !! Hugs Mrs A.

Wow Kath, you've done an excellent job with this challenge, a lovely variety of designs here! I did think about entering as it's a bit different, but was too lazy!

What a pretty bunch of cards.

Di said...

Brilliant set of cards Kath! Love Melon Mambo of course. I've been wanting to try the umpteen cards using one sheet of patterned paper technique for ages.

Great to see you in the Playground - Parsnip did whisper to me 'Isn't that the lady who isn't keen on butterflies' - so you obviously haven't been forgotten at all!

Beautiful set of cards, lovely designs

Jane Willis said...

What a gorgeous set of cards. Maybe you would have preferred to play with more colours but actually I think the restrained colour scheme has worked beautifully and made them into a definite "set". I love all the flowers and embellishments you have added. Thanks for playing along at Back to Basics
