Half a one sheet wonder!

Hello everyone!
Have you ever created a one sheet wonder? Well this is a half sheet wonder! I have been inspired by Claire Daly's post on this clever technique to make some quick cards. You simply take half an A4 sheet of cardstock and stamp it randomly with your stamps of choice. Then chop up that piece of cardstock and use it on cards with other embellishments etc. This is what I came up with.

So I made 6 cards using the half A4 sheet so you could potentially make 12 cards using this method with a whole A4 sheet. It only took about 1.5 hours to make these six cards. If you would like to learn this method first hand then let me know as I would be happy to incorporate this into your workshop.
Cardstock: Whisper white, Tempting turquoise, Real red, Pumpkin pie, Old olive.
Ink: Whisper white craft, Tempting Turquoise, Real red, Pumpking pie and Old olive.
Stamps: Butterfly prints, Eastern Blooms, Lovely labels, Embrace life and God's blessings.
Accessories:Punches: scallop circle, butterfly, large oval and 1 3/8"circle. Ribbon: 1/4 " grosgrain in Old olive, Real red and Tempting turquoise. 5/8" grosgrain in Old olive . Playground designer buttons (More mustard)
Happy Stamping!
Love, Claire

WOW Claire, I absolutely love what you have come up with. Love the bright colours - they really suit that butterfly don't they? You have made great use of the half sheet to come up with these great cards. Well done!

Great cards, I was pretty impressed to get 5 cards from my half sheet wonder-well done on 6! What a great way to stock up the card stash ; )
