1 Stamp 5 Ways

The photos I am going to share with you today were taken a long time ago and the samples were made to demonstrate to a group of ladies at a local craft group. I only took one stamp with me to show them some of the different ways one stamp could be used - it worked as I received a few orders! The stamp was Pleasant Poppies

Now of course you could just stamp it onto card stock and mount onto a card blank and that would give us 6 ways but I used the Triple Time Stamping technique and this was the first sample

No colouring just basic stamping, matting and layering - looks pretty good. Here's sample number 2

The same card, matted onto a different colour card stock, coloured and embellished - the same stamp but a totally different card.
Sample number 3 is a bookmark

There are two layers of the green card stock joined together at the back with a scoreline near the top. In between the layers is a small magnet which holds the bookmark in place in your book. The stamp was only partially inked up for this as the main stamp is in three sections and each section can be carefully inked up with a marker to give smaller images.
How about a charm? This was sample number 4

Again only one section of the stamp was inked up then stamped onto shrink plastic. It was coloured, die cut and a large hole punched in the top. It was then heated with a heat gun and a fastening attached.
Finally for sample number 5 I showed them an 8" x 8" scrapbook page

This time the stamp was inked with Versamark ink and heat set with white embossing powder. I used a coral card stock and matching marker to colour the flowers and the same ink to stamp the words.
The page is made by trimming an A4 piece of card stock to 8" on the short side and then scoring at 8" on the log side. The card stock can then be folded to an 8" x 8" page with a pocket for you to add journaling tags or photos.
