3 Cards 1 Stamp

QKR Stampede put out a call for card fronts using their stamps, as they will be doing their first trade show in September. For each card front sent in they will give me a stamp of my choice. What a great deal!! I have a few of their stamps and there are more that I would love to have, so this works out great for me.

Below I am showing 3 different cards using the same stamp in 3 different ways. The first card is a Thanksgiving card using their Pumpkin Vine stamp.

First I printed the sentiment from my computer onto plain white cardstock, then stamped the image with Versafine black onyx ink, then colored it with Aqua Crayons.
I used my 'ribbon hole' punch to punch the holes at the bottom and threaded brown satin ribbon through and once it was layered onto the orange cardstock I attached the ribbon to the back of the cardstock.
Then I layered it onto brown cardstock and it was done.

This second card was done with the same stamp, stamped and colored in the same way, but this time I cut the image out and cut the vine and leaves at the top off completely.

The sentiment this time was put on with rub ons, I attached a ribbon from my stash, layered it onto brown cardstock that had been punched with an EKSuccess border punch. The pumpkin was then attached with foam tape to pop it up a bit and give it a little demension. Finally, I layered it onto white cardstock, rounded the corners of the card was done.

For the third card, I stamped the same as the other two. This time I cut out only the pumpkin. I colored it with Aqua Crayons and used my black Zig pen to draw the face on the pumpkin. I then adhered the pumpkin to brown cardstock.
I have had these leaves in my stash of supplies for ages, they are all in a jar and I have not had the chance to use them before. They were perfect for this card. I put down some ATG tape and started sticking the leaves down randomly around the pumpkin, when they needed to be a little more layered, I used mini glue dots to adhere them.
The BOOO! was put the orange cardstock on with TLC rub ons, then I adhered it to the brown cardstock and layered the entire thing onto some Gem Opal Co'ordinations cardstock. I think he turned out very cute.
I hope Meribeth, at QKR likes what I have done. I think it shows that the stamps can be used in more than one way.
I have several more that I will be showing soon, so stay tuned! I also have some more to make in the next couple weeks.
Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment if you wish, become a follower too! Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Darling! I want to know where to look for the ribbon hole punch?
I love those leaves w/the jack o'lantern.
