Today's idea is to use one stamp three different ways for card making.
Do you sometimes get in a rut and make cards the same over and over, I think that happens to most of us.
I chose the stamp Leafy Vines (CG509) by Hero Arts.
Card #1

Stamps - Hero Arts Cling Happy Definition Birthday (CO269) (in the background)
and Hero Arts Cling Leafy Vines (CG509)
Paper - Two different colors of blue card stock
White card stock
Ink - Adirondack Earth tones Stonewashed
Punch - Martha Stewart- Both border and butterflies
Kaiser Pearls
Card is 5x7

Card #2

White and green card stock
Same stamp - Leafy Vines, Hero Arts
Spellbinders Grand Large Labels (LF-168)
Ink - Adirondack Earth tones Meadow
Circle and Scalloped circle punch Paper Shapers
Stamped the Large Labels cut in three sizes with the stamp
and popped them up onto each other
Inked the stamp and randomly stamped a white 5x7
card front in the same Meadow ink.
Adhered the green panels in the center. Tied a bow
using white organdy ribbon. Tied the sentiment to the center
of the bow.
Rhinestones in each corner on the bottom green panel.

White 5x7 card stock card
Dies - Spellbinder's 5x7 Elegant Labels 4 (S6-005)
Cut the second die in the set in black card stock
Leaving the frame around your cut card stock, ink
the Leafy Vines stamp with Versamark clear ink, and emboss
in white embossing powder.
Third die in the set is the label, ran ribbon through it
from my stash, and stamped and embossed the word Friend on the label.
For an extra pop, I cut the Memory Box Precious Hearts die (98474)
out in red glitter paper (two in the set, I used the smallest one)

This is a wonderful stamp and so versatile.
Thanks for stopping by today.
