With One Set of Stamps

I had a little play with one of my favourite sets of stamps a couple of days ago, and set myself the challenge of creating 3 different looks using the same basic design.    I tend to use a lot of colour, so I thought I would do 1 card using some favourite bits and pieces, and 2 cards using colours I don't normally go to... Here are the resulting cards:



I started with this card, using a sheet from THIS pp onto which I satamped the flowers from THIS SET of stamps, as well as THIS RIBBON, and THIS RIBBON.   The butterflies were made using THIS PUNCH.
The sentiment, from the same set of stamps, was stamped onto a torn piece of vellum paper using StaZon black ink.





I then moved onto this card, using a dark brown card blank, and a kraft coloured topper, onto which I stamped the same flower images using StaZon timber brown ink, distressing the edges, and adding the image of the dragonfly (hard to see in the photo, but it is there) stamped with Brilliance ink (pearlescent sky blue)
I used THIS DOUBLE-SIDED RIBBON, THIS paper cord, and the cream version of THIS ruffled ribbon (which doesn't seem to be in stock ATM).





And lastly, I made this pink number, again using the same stamped images, StaZon timber brown ink, THIS LACE, THIS RIBBON, and the sentiment was stamped onto a hand-drawn heart and stuck using some foam squares.    I added a little KG to the flowers and the edges of the heart, just because I felt like it LOL.



A very basic design can go a long way, just by changing the colours and accesories, much like an outfit : )      Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoyed your time here...

And don't forget, you still have until the end of the month to enter CRAFT QUEEN's challenge over at CRAFT QUEEN's blog, for all the details, have a look HERE...

These are great cards! It's fun to challenge yourself like that. I've been stamping outside my comfort zone lately too. It alternates between being a real rush ("Wow! Why don't I do this more often?") and being a real pain in the backside ("This is hideous! Now I know why I have a comfort zone.").
