Cover a Card: Cards

Today is Michelle's turn or "how to make 3 beautiful and very different cards with one stamp". 
It's amazing how you can achieve such different looks depending on the technique you use, don't you think?
Here's how Michelle made her cards... 

On the first card I stamped the tree Impression Obsession - Cover-a-card: Branches with Brilliance Dew Drop ink pad - thyme and embossed it with clear embossing powder, then inked the card with TH Distress Ink pads. The card was then mat and layered and embellished with Shapeabilities - Banner basics three.
I then cut a deep yellow insert which I stamped with one of the stamps from Katzelkraft rubber stamps - 

Katzelkraft rubber stamps: Norris and JMC: nature quotes
Shapeabilities - Banner basics three


This card was very simply stamped with TH bundled sage ink. I cut it out then printed the sentiment in place.


To make this card I first stamped the tree image onto white card with Pumice Stone ink.
 Stamped the bird from TH Urban Chic set, then printed the sentiment as before. I had some grungy music card in my stash which was perfect for making a gate fold card on which to mount the image. On the outside I pasted black Dreamweaver paste through Dreamweaver crows stencil onto the same card and cut to fit when dry. The sentiment was just hand written on the front after mounting on sticky pads with the ribbon behind.

Distress Ink pad: Pumice stone
Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz: Urban chic
Dreamweaver stencil: crows

See you tomorrow
