In preparation for the upcoming January-June Mini Catalogue, I decided to use up the last bits of some of my Designer Series Paper packs. Here are the last cards with Ornate Garden:

 

 

And the last cards with Brightly Gleaming – which is NOT just for Christmas cards!

The last cards with now-retired papers Parisian Beauty, Peaceful Poppies, and Flowering Foils:

I absolutely love the Forever Greenery paper, and I bought an extra pack of it during last month’s DSP sale. This isn’t the last of that pack – I’ve got lots left still, which is why I felt I could make these lushly layered cards. I made 20 of each!

Then my Product Purchase Premiere arrived (that’s an exclusive pre-order open to demonstrators who attended OnStage). I ordered the gorgeous Fine Art Floral paper and whipped up some of these handy post-it note holders.

Thanks for stopping by to see my projects! If you’re interested in buying any of the supplies needed to create your own, have a look at the shopping list below. Take care and Happy Stampin’!

If you follow any other stampin’ blogs or Facebook groups, you may have seen the Double Wonder that’s been making the rounds lately. This is a template created by Shannon West of the Stampin’ Up! home office in Utah. I decided to jump on the bandwagon and try it out myself with the beautiful new Specialty Designer Series Paper, Ornate Garden! This stunning paper includes gold foil accents, which is why it’s a specialty paper. It’s part of the Ornate Garden Suite from the new annual catalogue coming out in a few weeks – but this suite is available now!

The Double Wonder is a way to get eleven beautiful cards out of one sheet of DSP. The template shows you just how to cut your paper and assemble your cards. I’ll walk you through the process, then you can download this printable template to help you make your own.

Start by cutting a 12×12″ sheet of DSP into two 6×12″ pieces. Set one piece aside, and cut the other into three pieces, as shown below. From left to right, these are Layouts 3, 2, and 1.

Layout 1:


Cut this piece into six pieces measuring 3 x 1.5″. These six pieces will make two cards.

Layout 2:


Cut a 3/4″ strip from the bottom of this piece, and set this piece aside for Layout 3. Cut the remaining piece into four 1″ strips. These four strips will make two fun-fold cards.

Layout 3:


Cut this piece into two 3.5 x 2.25″ pieces. These two pieces, along with the 3/4″ strip cut in the previous step, will make one card.

Layout 4:
You’re left with a piece measuring 1.5 x 3.5″. Cut this in half to create two pieces measuring 1.5 x 1.75″. Set these aside.

Now repeat all the above cuts on your second 6×12″ piece of DSP. Again, you’ll get two cards from Layout 1; two from Layout 2; and one from Layout 3. Cut your last 1.5 x 3.5″ piece in half to create two pieces measuring 1.5 x 1.75″; now you have four pieces this size, which you’ll combine to make one card.

Finish your cards with whatever sentiments, shapes, and embellishments you like!

Here’s a printable template to help you with your Double Wonder cards. Once you’ve made some, be sure to share a photo in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!
