108 cards from 1-Stampin' UP! 12 x 12 DSP package.. Happy Birthday To You! cards

108 cards.... wowzers!!  this has been a four day project..  all I had to do tonight was to finish up 5 sets of the cards that are to the right/middle and front row.

I made 12 sets from each of the pattern designs.. then with the leftovers.. I made 6 cards for each of the pattern designs.

Here are the details:

I used Stampin' UP! The Open Sea stamp set and Natutical Expedition DSP, you could use really any set/paper that you have.

Measurements for cards on back row and left/middle and front:

card base:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
solid layer: 4 x 5 1/4"
pattern layer:  3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
NOTE:  Someone asked about the DSP cuts..  I cut the 5 1/8" x 12" piece.. then another of them.. that left me a 1 3/4" x 12" piece left.. that I used on the other cards.. then I cut the 5 1/8" x 12" pieces into 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" pieces.  You will get 6 useable toppers of the pattern paper from each 12" x 12" sheet.

stamped main layer:
white: 3 1/4" x 4
solid: 3 3/8" x 4 1/8"

white: 1" x 3 1/2" 
solid: 1 1/8" x 3 5/8

Measurements for cards that are right/middle and front row:

card base:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2" 
strip pattern:  1 3/4" x 4"
strip solid:  1 7/8" x 4 1/8"

white: 1" x 3 1/2"
solid: 1 1/8" x 3 5/8"

The ships are stamped and punched out using punches, then layered onto another punched out circle.

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

These are wonderful, Pam! I'm expecting some SU papers in the mail soon and I want to try your sketches, so much so that I tried to make them into real sketches like you mentioned on FB. I think I have your e-mail address, so I'll send them your way.

Pam, thanks for another batch of inspiration! I've been avidly following your blog since I discovered you through OWH. I love that you have great photos and give all the measurements, sketch, and deets about your cards! I've CASE'd several of them, and they have helped me fill a box of 127 to ship off to OWH. Keep it up!!

Love it! Can you help me with the DSP cuts? So it was a 12x12 to begin with? How many large pieces & how many small pieces from each sheet? Did that use it all or was there still some leftover?

**I just added the information in the posting about how I cut the DSP. hope that helps. ~ Pam

Another wonderful post Pam! The cards are fantastic and the time you have spent detailing your measurements is so kind. 108 is just about the number of cards I need to fill my next box!

WOWZERS is right ! Beautiful cards. I keep telling myself to do some mass producing. These are great. Thanks for the inspiration.

JoAnn P said...

Wow! The amount of beautiful cards you turn out for each post floors me but this one tops them all.

I love this stamp set and really like how you used it. Great cards. Thanks for posting the measurements. When I CASE a card I spend more time figuring out the scale than I do actually making the cards.
