One Sheet Wonder (OSW) Christmas

If you read my September blog postings (HERE), I created a One Sheet Wonder using the Stampin' Up! fall colors:  Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango.  I decided to follow the same format and create a Christmas OSW. 

One Sheet Wonder is a stamping technique where you use stamps to create a background.  I choose to use an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of Whisper White as my background.  I knew I wanted to use my new favorite color - Cherry Cobbler, along with Garden Green.  I wasn't sure what my third color would be.  I took a 4" square piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the flowers in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.  The colors that would coordinate with those two would be Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy and So Saffron.  I tried each color and decided to go with So Saffron; the other two colors were just too strong.

I started with Garden Green using the medium sized stamp from the Love & Care stamp set by Stampin' Up! (Level 2 Hostess, 2011 Summer Mini Catalog, no longer available).
My second color was Cherry Cobbler
I finished off with So Saffron

Following the same cutting layout from my class planner, I cut my 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of stamped paper into ten pieces.  I did end up stamping in some of the blank spots once I cut the cardstock.
