Welcome to the Joy of Sets October Blog Hop and this month we are sharing how we can use one stamp set three different ways. I have chosen to use the fun Birds of a Feather stamp set (item #150571) from Stampin' Up! that can be found in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. This stamp set can be used for a variety of occasions throughout the holidays, so I decided to create three cards to showcase this versatility.As you can see from the photo above, I have created a Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas card to showcase this stamp set. I have used Stampin' Blends Markers to color the stamped images to give them a bright and cheerful look. I have also used the Layering Circles Dies to die cut the circles and mattes for the birds and the smallest die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies for the sentiments.
This cute little pirate duck is perfect for creating fun Halloween projects. I chose to use Basic Black cardstock for the card base and used a piece of Grapefruit Grove Designer Series Paper for the background. To embellish this card design, I added a piece of Basic Black 3/8" Scalloped Edge Ribbon and heat embossed the sentiment with Whisper White Shimmer Embossing Powder.
For my Thanksgiving card, I used the cute turkey image and chose to use Crushed Curry cardstock for the card base and added a piece of Terracotta Tile Designer Series Paper for the background. I heat embossed the sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder and added a piece of Gold 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon under the sentiment to embellish the card design.
My final card design features the adorable little Santa chick and I chose to use Real Red cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Blueberry Bushel Designer Series Paper for the background. I embossed the sentiment using Silver Embossing Powder and added Basic Rhinestones to the corners for a touch of bling. The bow was created using 3/8" Real Red Cotton Ribbon to finish off the design.
Each of these cards follows the same basic layout and similar supplies but gives you the ability to customize the card to suit the occasion. I hope that you have enjoyed my card designs and that they inspire you to create your own projects by playing around with different colors and supplies to add variety to your projects.
