Day 7 Card Class, 1 stamp 3 ways

Lots of pics for today's class, so let's get started! The lesson today was using one stamp in three ways. I chose the 'We Totally Click' stamp set by Paper Smooches for my cards, and this cute camera image to use three ways. All the sentiments I've used are also included in this set.

For the first card, I used the image as a border. Super simple and really quick to complete. I added a little copic shadowing and a tiny contrasting piece to each side of the camera border...

 ...and lines to the 'click' for a little extra interest.

The second card is also super simple. I hand cut the flag banners layering them directly to the cardbase, and cut and stamped the camera three times.

I colored one of the cameras and embossed it with clear powder, then layered it on top of the others with foam tape between each for dimension. I also heat embossed the sentiment and tiny smiley face.

Card number three is still clean and simple but takes a little more effort than the first two examples. I cut four cameras from precut squares to fit the working space using the coordinating die {sold separately}, stamped three of them, each in a different color ink and heat embossed them with clear powder, then colored each of the frames with coordinating copic marker and adhered with foam tape cut into strips. I actually cut a fifth camera too but didn't need the frame portion. For the sentiment, I cut the center from the fifth camera to use as a template to cut from plain paper, then I stamped the sentiment onto that piece and adhered it to the fourth camera. I colored the frame for this one in dark gray copic marker and adhered to the black background mat with foam tape as I did for the others. Then I adhered each of the cameras in their frames directly to the mat beneath for a kind of "window" look.

This side view gives a little better perspective on the windows/frames. Not difficult, just takes a little more time than the previous two cards. Fun technique though!

There you have one stamp used three ways. Hope you'll try this idea soon too. :) Have fun!
