6 cards 1 stamp challenge

Darcy set a challenge to complete 6 cards using the same stamp so here are my efforts.

The one stamp I used through out was from Darcy's new Christmas set, and I choose the Tree.

Card 1 is stamped with Distressed Ink and coloured with the same ink, some of the definition moved a bit so I have to use a fine marker pen to put back what I had lost.  The final element for this card was the addition of Black Glossy Elements (Ranger).

Card 2 is probably my favourite, I stamped the tree on to double sided Christmas Paper, cut out alternate layers and matted on to the stamped image on a plain piece of card. Added a few crystal gems to finish and a piece of Christmas ribbon.

Card 3  this one is vcry simple I just stamped and embossed in gold and added some glitter etc.

Card 4 for this one I created a background using Fresco paints, Lilac and Eggplant and Pewter at the end.  Then overstamped with a greeting and embossed in clear, you cant see much from the picture. Next stage to stamp the tree in black archival and added buttons for decoration this time.

Card 5 again simple, I stamped the tree on to card and coloured with Inktense pencils and water, next added some Stickles Glitter.

Card 6 my final one, this one I stamped and embossed in black and coloured with H20's for a more sparkly effect.

In away I suppose they are very similar, but I try to make Christmas cards simple and without too much embellishment so as not to add to the postage.  And finally I really love this stamp set. Thanks Darcy.

If you have read to the bottom of this post congratulations!!!!


  1. Well done, these all look so fabulous. Such different looks with one stamp.

  2. They all look great. I have also been doing this challenge today but by the time I'd finished the daylight had disappeared so can't take good photos.

  4. Fabulous, thankyou for joining in. I too love the 2nd one, the use of double sided paper is genius. i also love the button one, buttons have a special place in my heart lol

  5. How lovely that you managed to get 6 completely different looking cards with the same stamp! I think my fav is the plain colour one with the gold embossing and the green one at the top... and the... yep, like them all!

  6. I would give the first one to my daughter...who delights in all things pink! Nice job on all of these!
