Stages of My CHF Masterboard/One Sheet Wonder!

So, I thought I would share with you the steps I am taking to make my last and final project(s) for the Cornish Heritage Farms Summer Design Star Challenge.

The last challenge is to make a One Sheet Wonder (also known as a Masterboard), and then cut it up to create as many projects as you can from that one sheet of paper.

In other words, using CHF stamps, make your own patterned paper.

First, let me say, I love the CHF stamps and have been having so much fun playing (in the wee moments I can)!! This last challenge has been keeping busy... I actually made another OSW, after I did my first one, from a different set, and will play with that at a later date. This is fondly known in my household as 'one of mommy's sidetracked adventures'. I tend to wonder off from what I am supposed to be doing - and work on another project!

Case in point: I really should be getting ready for the two meat orders that I am filling this morning, as well as my day job work, but since I finished coloring my sheet, at 5 am, I then scanned, then merged, and thought, might as well post this baby!!!

And I am still in my jammies...

Let's get back on track, shall we?????

Stage I: One Sheet Wonder - Uncolored
CHF Kim Hughes Collection - Let's Get Stuffed
Stazon Inks (In fall colors!)

So, after I stamped this, I thought 'oh this is fun fun fun'!!!!
I loved the result, scanned it, and thought that I was done...

But, then I thought...
Hmm... Should I color it????

And, then this happened (over the course of 3 days - snippets of moments, you know!)

Stage II: One Sheet Wonder - Colored
I colored the images with Copics and Stampin' Up Markers
Just put the finishing touches on early this am!

I really like my resulting paper and do not want to cut it!!!

So, the next step(s) are to cut this baby up, and make cards or layouts, or altered goodies...

I will show those to you in my next post!

Have a great day!

What a great piece of patterned paper!! I'm still in the throes of working on my OSW project too. There have already been some really nice entries! Good luck!! Have a great weekend!

Love the coloring. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

so glad you shared the first and second step! If I hadn't been in such a rush to head out on vacation I probably would have tried to do it sequentially too! Love the first step and the second really wows! Can't wait to see your projects from this beautiful paper. (I too have a second sheet of PP I created that will probably show up somewhere!)

Cute and charming! I know from experience how long that takes...good job, You! I always love to see your crafty efforts. Awesome!

Anne said...

Hi, Andi! Sounds like you are having fun! Can't wait to see what you make from your one sheet! :-)

Well, considering the hour you rise and all you do get done, I think you are entitled to getting a little sidetracked! :> Especially, when it is to get a little craft on! I've been knee deep in thoughts of Christmas papercrafts since Christmas in July began popping up, that its nice to step back a step to Fall! You OSW came out fantastic and I'm looking forward to seeing how you use it! :>

Hi Andi! Wow - great work with the masterboard!!! I wouldn't want to cut into it either - but I love the projects you made with it on your next post!!! Terrific!!

found your blog today while searching on "Let's Get Stuffed". Love the OSW paper that you made. Darn tooting you're NOT cutting that paper!!! Way too many woman-hours in there!! Love what you did with the whole project.
