One Sheet Wonder projects

So lately I've done a lot of experimenting making sheets of background papers that I can use later for projects. One of my favorite color combinations of PTI colors is Melon Berry and Dark Chocolate. For these cards I started by stamping my leaves from PTI Beautiful Blooms on Kraft cardstock in Fresh Snow. Then I inked up the stamp again with New Leaf and stamped the leaves again, only moving them slightly off from the first image. I thought it was an interesting effect and want to try it again with some other colors. Link
The butterflies are from the set Wishing You. I just drew in the body of the butterflies by hand and used the antennae from Little Lady. The spots are made using a white gel pen. For my base card I used one of my favorite stamps from Retro Basics Backgrounds, the dashed line grid. The sentiment is from Simple Little Things, which was last year's PTI Anniversary set. To complete the card I added a layer of Dark Chocolate cardstock with a border punch and some New Leaf ribbon. Very simple but I just love these colors together!

Here's another similar card using this one sheet wonder but this time I also used a gorgeous new set from PTI called Life. Lisa Johnson designed this set and I think everything about it is just perfect. It has beautiful sentiments and flower silhouettes. Run on over to PTI and get it!

Well that's all for now. I have some more background sheet projects to share later and I need to get to work on a project for the April Blog Hop which will go live on April 25th at 8.p.m Stop back and see me soon!
