One Style - 4 Unique Cards

I decided to use the same template (idea) for a card and show you how we can make four of them uniquely different.

Stampin' Up! Products Used:
Card bases were made using Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry Card Stock.
Accent card stock is Dusty Durango.
Sentiment was stamped using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink on Whisper White Card Stock.
Versamark Ink was used for watermarking.
Chocolate Chip Classic ink for some of the stamping.
Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Ribbon was an accent on one of the cards.
Sentiments are from Favorite Thoughts Stamp Set, item in the Summer Mini Catalog.

Card base is 4 1/4" x 11". Fold in half.
Attach the Dusty Durango piece ... 2 3/4" x 4 1/4"
Whisper White is 1 3/4" x 2 1/4"
This one is a basic card.

Exact same template on this one except that I used Versamark to stamp "crowns" and tiny flowers to create my own designer cardstock. Crown is from the stamp set called: Princess Time, item #116720. Versamark is clear sticky (when wet) ink that if often used for embossing projects. When used alone it deepens the color of the card stock giving it a watermark effect as it dries. It does not work well with very dark colors tho. The watermark adds a visual interest to the card.

This card was set up the same way, except the Dusty Durango Paper was given an Eyelet Border using the Eyelet Border Paper Punch, item #113692. The compass was stamped using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink. The compass is part of the Sentimental Journey Stamp Set in the Summer Mini Catalog, item #118513 - wood mount OR item #120075 - clear mount.

The final example uses the same style but I've added a bit more accessories to it. I used the Butterfly Punch, item #116629 and punch out 3 butterflies -- designer series paper of your choice. Used the Eyelet Border punch on the card base accenting underneath with dusty durango card stock (1 1/2" x 5 1/2". Also added in a bit of Bermuda Bay 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, item #115610. The watermark images were done in Versamark using the Eastern Blooms Stamp Set, item #111626. I also added a bit of glitter glue to make the butterfly bodies.

The stamp set called Favorite Thoughts, item #116968 - Wood Mount or item #120048 - Clear mount is a set of 4 stamps. There are in the Summer Mini Catalog. The quotes in this stamp set are:

There is nothing wrong with the world that a sensible woman could not settle in an afternoon - Jean Giraudoux

Don't treat me any differently than you would a Queen!


A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water. - Eleanor Roosevelt

Have a great week. Hope you enjoyed the 4 cards.

I'm on a self-imposed spending ban until my checking account has a chance to recover from a "big" spree... but as soon as it's healthy again I'll have the "Favorite Thoughts" stamps in my posession... Love, love, love these cards!
