Three-of a-Kind Plus One

This week's One Layer Wednesday Challenge was hosted by Jennifer.  The challenge is to make three one-layer cards. Yes, three. Make three cards all using the same image stamp but vary the occasion by changing the sentiment and/or ink colour and/or card stock colour. You must use the same image stamp on each card.

For the first card,  I colored the stem & leaves with Always Artichoke and the flowers with Concord Crush.  To add a bit more color, I finished it off with a strip of Concord Crush ribbon.  The sentiment is from Something to Celebrate.

For the second card, I inked the stems & leaves with Pear Pizzazz and the flowers with Marina Mist.  Then I topped it off with Marina Mist taffeta ribbon.  The sentiment is also from Something to Celebrate.

The third card has stems & leaves of Old Olive and flowers and ribbon of Poppy Parade.  The sentiment is from Because I Care.

I was having so much fun, I had to try one more.  This time I used Soft Suede for the stems & leaves and More Mustard for the flowers.  Since it is a masculine care, I opted for hemp twine to finish it off.  The sentiment is from Something to Celebrate.

The bee from the set is stamped in Basic Black and colored with a Daffodil Delight marker and all are stamped on Naturals White cardstock.

I could have gone on and made a sympathy card and  a get well card and maybe a thinking of you card.  So many cards, so little time! 

This is such a versatile set and tomorrow is the last day to order it. This set is definitely a keeper!

I'm so glad you came to visit today.  I hope you come back soon.
