Claire's Half Sheet Wonder

I love the idea of the full/half sheet wonder. So many cards with minimal effort. Great way to stock up the card stash, or a beautiful gift to give. Head on over to Claire Daly's blog to check out her beautiful samples (& a chance to win a punch of your choice! So generous!)

Here are my "Half Sheet Wonder" creations, I got 5 cards from half a sheet of whisper white!
I used 'Organic Outlines' and Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Kraft & a touch of Black for my colour combo. I also added Kraft & Pink Pirouette ribbon, some punches and piercing & a sweet treat cup.

Here they are up close so you can see all the details...

I have also used 'Whimsical Words' & the flower trio punch on this one. The flower from Organic Outlines has been stamped off once with Sahara Sand on the Kraft for the background.

This card also uses the 'one of a kind' single stamp, that is very cute on cards but can also be used on the back of your cards in compliance with the Stampin' Up! policy on selling cards.

and to finish off a little 3x3 gift card using the circle I punched out for the sweet treat cup. NO SCRAPS left over at all! and an extra 1 3/4" circle of Rose Red distressed (with my fingernail!)sticking out from behind. I also stamped an extra flower in Rose Red to cut out & pop up on dimensionals. Stamp set 'Whimsical Words' & 'Organic Outline'

I really like these & I am definately going to make some more...might challenge myself to do a masculine set next-Watch this space!


  1. These are absolutely gorgeous Elise! I love them! I wouldn't have thought to use a big set like organic outlines on a half sheet wonder but it worked really well. Love your colour scheme too. Awesome job :)

  2. Gorgeous Elise! Lovely colour scheme - I love Pink pirouette, especially that striped grosgrain ribbon - and you have shown me a great way to use that stamp set. Thanks for looking at my blog too :) Claire
