One Stamp Three Ways

Julie Campbell is hosting a challenge over at Two Peas. I love Julie's work so had to play along with her challenge. ETA - did you know that Julie is one of the new Paper Craft's Go To Gals as well as a Garden Girl at Two Peas? A big congrats to her!

In this card, I used my VersaMark pad and made a background with the stamp.

For this one, I used three different colours and oriented the stamp in three different ways.

I used as a background here again but in a different way. It serves as a background for the sentiment in this case.

This card is also for the Play Date Cafe Colour challenge (grass green, sky blue and bright blue). Those brads are bright blue, believe it or not! Also, the sketch is from SCS Sketch Challenge 327.

I'm doing a whole bunch of challenge right now as I have secured employment (woo hoo!!!). I have some time before it starts so I'm in my craft room a lot! I'll tell you more about my new job coming up soon. It will involve some changes around here...
Anyway, to that end, I will be posting twice tomorrow too!

Happy Thursday and thanks for stopping by.
