OSW Time!

I sat down on Friday night and started stamping. I stamped a sheet of Very Vanilla with the Cottage Rose set using Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke and Brocade Blue). I then cut it into peices to use on various cards. OSW style. For those of you who aren't familiar with what OSW means, it stands for One Sheet Wonder. This is where you can make a bunch of cards using one main sheet of paper. Well, out of this sheet of Cottage Rose that I did I only got 5 cards:

I was really please with how the all turned out, but decided that I wanted more cards out of my one sheet. So I went looking for the templates avaliable online. I found this one avaliable in the downloads section on A Shade Of Blue. And created these cards using a sheet of Whisper White stamped with the flower from All Wrapped Up and the lady bugs from the All Wrapped Up Accessories set:
That template was for 10 cards although I didn't like the way two of them turned out so I decided to not include those two. In searching for templates I came across this thread on Splitcoast with a template for 14 cards! Yup, 14 cards using a 12X12 sheet of paper. So I decided to give that one a try and here are my results:

Two days of stamping, 8 hours total and 28 cards to show for it. *grin* The only reason it took so long was because I actually stamped other sheets and colored them but once I got them cut I didn't like how they would looks so I opted against those. Otherwise it would have been a few hours tops.
