One Stamp Three Ways

Today & tomorrow are exciting days as Precious Remembrance Shop & Imagine Crafts are doing a joint Blog Hop with giveaways!  
I have tons of wonderful Imagine Crafts products & you will see quite a few of them in my projects.  We're also featuring 2 of the great PRS stamp sets: School Days & Totally.  Today I'm showing you how the same stamp can be used for very different looks.  A stamp positioner makes it super easy, but acrylic blocks would work, too.  Here are my 3 cards using the big thanks word from the School Days set.
First is the red & black card using school colors to thank a male coach or teacher.  The inks are Memento Tuxedo Black & Rhubarb Stalk. 
I purposely left the black words a little light & stamped multiple times for a heavy inking of the red.  Then I used a small paintbrush dipped in GooseBumps Shimmer Texture spray to cover the red word.  The result is fun shine & texture when the light hits it.  
Next I went feminine using beautiful VersaMagic Spring Pansy & Purple Hydrangea matted with gray cardstock.  
The panel was spritzed with Frost Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray which is gorgeous!  I rounded the corners & added HA ombre sequins. 
My third card uses Brilliance inks which are some of my oldest & best loved.  This time I had a rainbow theme using these Pearlescent inks: Poppy, Rust, Yellow, Thyme & Sky Blue.
I trimmed down the panel, attached a strip of patterned paper & tied on twine.  There you have it--one stamp & 3 very different cards.
The hop begins at the Precious Remembrance Shop Blog & you'll find all the details there, including how to be in the running for one of the stamp sets or a $30 Imagine Crafts gift certificate.  Enjoy the hop and I'll see you tomorrow for day 2.

I love that you've used a variety of Imagine inks on your cards!! They're all fantastic Greta, but I think the last is my favorite. The rainbow of thanks and the little striped border are perfectly charming!

By using different color combos you achieved very different looks! Love them all - the black with the pop of bumpy and shiny red, the monochromatic purple all shimmery and, of course, the rainbow! Great set!
