One Scrapbooking Paper – Three Card Making Ideas

I love to see how far I can stretch my supplies so this week I challenged myself to create three unique cards from just one piece of scrapbooking paper. Apart from the one paper, I only allowed myself to use cardstock, stamps and pens – nothing else. Here’s what I came up with!

Have you seen my free report on Inspired Card Making?

In it, I share my secrets to using simple card making ideas over and over to create new and fresh designs every time.

Card Idea 1:

Three Card Making Ideas

This card was created using DCWV Pink Butterflies Paper, blue Bazzill cardstock, white cardstock, light purple cardstock, dark purple cardstock, a Chinese text stamp, a Happy Birthday stamp, purple ink and a purple pen.

To recreate this card making idea, follow these steps:

1. Cut a piece of blue cardstock measuring 5 1/2 inches by 11 inches (14cm by 28cm). Fold in half to create a card.

2. Cut a piece of DCWV Pink Butterflies paper measuring 12.7cm by 11.5cm. Mat with white cardstock and glue to the front of your card approximately 0.4cm from the left and bottom edges.

3. Cut out a circle from light purple cardstock. It should be about 6cm from diameter. Using purple ink stamp Chinese text images (or any other pattern) on your circle to create a subtle background. When dry, draw a border of dots around the edge with a purple pen. Mat with white cardstock and glue to your card. It should be centred horizontally and towards the top of your card.

4. Cut out another circle, this time from white cardstock. It should be about 3.7cm in diameter. Draw a border around the edge (don’t worry about making it too neat). Glue to the centre of your circle from the previous step.

5. Cut out two blue butterflies from DCWV Pink Butterflies paper, making sure you leave a small pink border all the way around them. Glue in your circle, as shown above.

6. Cut out another two blue butterflies from DCWV Pink Butterflies paper. Make sure they are the same size as the butterflies from the previous step, but this time, do not leave a pink border around them. Also, cut off their antennae. Make a small fold along either side of the body to make the wings stick up. Glue one on top of each butterfly from the previous step but make sure you only place glue on the underside of the body section – you want to be able to make the wings stand up!

7. Cut a strip of dark purple cardstock measuring approximately 8.3cm by 1.5cm. Stamp a Happy Birthday message in the centre (you may like to go over this with a pen to make it stand out more). Mat with white cardstock and glue across the bottom of your circle, as shown above.

Card Idea 2:

Three Card Making Ideas 2

This card was created using DCWV Pink Butterflies Paper, white Bazzill cardstock, blue Bazzill cardstock, purple Bazzill cardstock, green Bazzill cardstock, a Happy Birthday stamp and purple ink.

To recreate this card making idea, follow these steps:

1. Cut a piece of white Bazzill cardstock measuring 15cm by 20.6cm. Fold in half to create a card. Place in front of you so the fold is down the left side.

2. Cut a piece of blue Bazzill cardstock measuring 7.5cm by 12.5cm. Glue vertically down the right side of your card, as shown above.

3. Cut a piece of purple Bazzill cardstock measuring 1.8cm by 14cm. Glue vertically down the right side of your card, approximately 0.6cm from the right edge.

4. Cut a piece of green Bazzill cardstock measuring 9.3cm by 4cm. Trim one end to create a tag. Glue horizontally across your card so that it is up against the right edge and 2.8cm from the bottom edge.

5. Cut out a floral design from DCWV Pink Butterflies paper, making sure you leave a pink border all the way around. Glue down the left side of your card, as shown above.

6. Stamp a Happy Birthday message in the bottom right corner of your green tag.

Card Idea 3:

Three Card Making Ideas 3

This card was created using DCWV Pink Butterflies Paper, pink Bazzill cardstock, white cardstock, a Happy Birthday stamp, purple ink, a pink pen and a purple pen.

To recreate this card making idea, follow these steps:

1. Cut a piece of pink Bazzill cardstock measuring 15cm by 20.6cm. Fold in half to create a card. Place in front of you so the fold is along the top.

2. Cut a piece of DCWV Pink Butterflies paper measuring 14cm by 9.5cm. Tear along each edge to give a white torn look. Glue to the centre of your card.

3. Cut a piece of pink Bazzill cardstock measuring 9.8cm by 7cm. Using a purple pen, draw a border around the edge, as shown above.

4. Stamp a Happy Birthday message in the middle of your pink rectangle from the previous step. It doesn’t have to be perfectly centred, but you may like to go over the image with a pink and/or purple pen to make it stand out more.

5. Cut out a selection of swirls from DCWV Pink Butterflies paper, making sure you leave a pink border all the way around each one. Glue around your Happy Birthday image, as shown above. Trim away any excess overhanging the edges.

6. Mat your pink rectangle with white cardstock and glue to the centre of your card.

7. Cut out two butterflies from DCWV Pink Butterflies paper, again making sure you leave a small pink border all the way around them. Make a small fold along either side of the body to make the wings stick up. Glue one on either side of your birthday message, as shown above, making sure you only place glue on the underside of the body section of each butterfly (again, so you can make the wings stand up).

    Hello
    Your cards are very beautiful!
    greetings Thea

  4. Janice on March 6th, 2009 3:02 am

    Love all three cards! In fact, I have this paper and started doing the exact thing only to see how many cards I can make using one piece of paper.

    Beautiful!

  5. Rebecca Yahrling on March 6th, 2009 3:02 am

    Love these cards! I am all for quick & simple because I make so many cards. Thanks for all your classes.

  6. Gerrie on March 6th, 2009 3:05 am

    These cards are really lovely. Thank you for sharing. Sorry about your garage and hope all is well now.

  7. Ginger on March 6th, 2009 3:12 am

    I love all three of these cards. The unique ideas are wonderful – double cutting the butterflies for 3d effect and cutting up the swirls and randomly placing around message are great new ideas. Thanks for sharing your time and talent. {I hope the garage repairs are done in a timely manner}

  8. Sissy on March 6th, 2009 4:34 am

    What wonderfully cute ideas!!! I guess I never plan as well as you do with these type of ideas, but I’m sure going to try now!! Keep up the good work…I love your stuff.

  9. Tammy Hoban on March 6th, 2009 4:41 am

    These cards are fabulous and beautiful. I am so glad I signed up for this class. Hope you have managed to dry out.
    Cheers

  14. Nancy on March 6th, 2009 5:43 am

    WOW! That’s a great way to use up a sheet of paper. I love all of those 3 cards. They are so whimical. I love how the bright pink buterfly paper is off setted with those more lighter blue, purple and green. They work great together.
    And of course i’m a fan of the brazzil cardstock, I love it!

  15. Anne - on March 6th, 2009 5:49 am

    Three truly beautiful cards. I’d love to try making all of them.

  17. Annette on March 6th, 2009 6:41 am

    Beautiful cards, I will try out these designs myself tomorrow, as I am too excited tonight.
    I have just managed to get a job after being out of work for 6 weeks from being made redundant.

  18. Alethea on March 6th, 2009 6:53 am

    You had such a wonderful idea. The cards are beautiful.

  19. Shelby on March 6th, 2009 7:13 am

    I have trouble coming up with “my own” ideas for cards, and it is terrific that you share yours with us. Loved the cards, especially #1 and #2. I plan to make them both soon. Thanks for your inspirations.

  20. odette on March 6th, 2009 7:13 am

    simple but good

  23. Merry on March 6th, 2009 8:00 am

    What beautiful cards…and very clever just to use one sheet of paper.

  24. Carol H. on March 6th, 2009 8:19 am

    I have some of the butterfly paper so was very pleased to see your designs! You must have known!!

    Plan to make up a few quick and easy cards today using your designs.

    Many thanks.
    Carol

  25. Carrie on March 6th, 2009 8:23 am

    Great work! I love how all three cards use an element of the patterned paper, but all three look completely different and it’s not obvious that you used the same pattern for each of them. What a great example of how you can use one patterned paper for a wide variety of designs and choices! Great job Jen!

  26. Lorraine McCloskey on March 6th, 2009 9:18 am

    these are brilliant, you are such an inspiration!

  27. Dianne on March 6th, 2009 9:18 am

    Wonderful card ideas, I love anything butterflies and will be trying your first card and will try all 3. You are inspirational in your creativity and using very few materials. Well done.

  28. norma orchard on March 6th, 2009 9:50 am

    Hi these cards are great

  29. cece norton on March 6th, 2009 11:10 am

    Oh, you are so good. Iloved all 3 cards and I will sure use up some of my paper that I didn’d know what to do with. Thank you so much for your classes. Have a fabulous time in Queensland and bring back some great ideas. Hope the garage is dry.

  30. donna on March 6th, 2009 11:37 am

    i was amazed how you were able to create 3 unique cards from the same paper. thanks for sharing your ideas.

  31. Renee on March 6th, 2009 11:45 am

  34. Linda on March 6th, 2009 4:13 pm

    I’m glad to see that I am not the ONLY one using interesting scrapbook papers for cards. I used some gorgeous paper found at a discount store to make my 2008 Christmas cards

  35. richel on March 6th, 2009 4:41 pm

    Absolutely beautiful!

  36. Lee-Ann on March 6th, 2009 6:17 pm

    thanks for taking the time to share “free” ideas with us.

  37. Delmarie from Botswana on March 6th, 2009 6:28 pm

    Hi Jen

    Living in Botswana makes it a bit difficult because the creativity juices is not flowing in this country. Thanks for these nice cards – I am glad I have joined. PLEASE keep them coming. Good luck with your garage.

  38. Melissa on March 6th, 2009 11:53 pm

    Thanks for sharing these Jen. I like all of them for being so different but my favourite is the simplicity of the middle one.
    I haven’t bought this pad of papers as I have boys and thought it wasn’t worth it. But maybe for cards I can reconsider.
    Well done!

  39. Sharon on March 7th, 2009 2:39 am

    Hi Jen
    Thank you for sharing these cards and what a brilliant idea. I dont have the exact papers but I am going to try it out with some of the papers that I do have.
    Good luck sorting out the garage.

    You’re card making ideas keep my creative juices flowing….I have altered so many of your ideas to make it a little more “ME”, and I soooo enjoy all your cards. Sometimes I make them just as you have shown them. I truly enjoy all of your card making classes, keep up the awesome work!!!
