Paper Pumpkin Monday: One Sheet Wonder Technique with All About Everything

One-Sheet-Wonder is a technique that's been around a LONG time! It's one we used to teach to beginning stampers more than a decade ago, and it still makes a beautiful card.

Choose a stamp set--here I used All About Everything, the bonus stamp set in the April Paper Pumpkin kit. You'll want a set with several images, some large and some small. Begin stamping with your largest image, then fill in with gradually smaller stamps. This gives you the best ability to balance out the look. You're really creating your own custom designer paper! You can use the colors most suited to your mood or to the recipient. I used Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Hello Honey (retiring), and Mossy Meadow (retiring).

I used the sketch from the Facebook page Bringing Birthdays Back. #imbringingbirthdaysback

Give it a try! Don't let techniques be intimidating. The worst thing that can happen is that you learn something to do differently next time.
