From One Sheet




Back to Basics  have a challenge I've not seen before - use one sheet of 12 inch patterned paper - so I had to join in.

I made four cards (I could have made another if I hadn't ruined some of it) using this paper from Carta Bella Space Age:



For my first card I made the paper into a stepper base (it's really good strength paper and double sided) . The robot was cut from another sheet in the range and the sentiment is an Avery Elle stamp. 
I'd also like to enter this into: 
Cardz 4 Guyz science fiction 

Here I used two stamps - the rocket one is from a freebie magazine set a few years ago, and I paper-pieced it with the patterned paper. The sentiment is by Clearly besotted. 
I'd also like to enter:
Casology  thrill 



Here I cut a card with 'Explore the Universe' on it from another sheet in the range and layered it onto a panel of my sheet . On my Silhouette, I cut out the rocket. The flame is cut from the reverse side of the paper.



Finally, these stamps are from the freebie set I mentioned earlier, stamped directly ont the patterned paper.

Oh I'm such a huge fan of little boy cards, especially with technology or robots! And I love the design of each one of these. I have it on my list to make a stash for all of my son's friend's birthday next year. Wish me luck! Hugs, Autumn

Great challenge-- never heard that one either! But it sounds great to get rid of stashed paper (to make room for more...) Terrific cards! Now you've got a great stash off boy-cards to have on-hand!

I've got two hats on today, Back to Basics and Cardz 4 Guyz, to thank you for sharing these wonderful cards with both challenges. That is a fab piece of paper and you've used it in four very different ways. I love that retro robot!

I saw the challenge but couldn’t find the time, too bad, I’d love to have given it a go too. You’ve got a great set of masculine cards from this sheet. What a cool freebie set too.
