Same, same done and dusted

I love when a card design can be made to look so different and yet use exactly the same stamps and embellishments.

This is what we did. All bases were Whisper White, the ink was Early Espresso and the stylised flower from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits was used on each card.

The first card was one layer, sponged around the edge. My favourite Gorgeous Grunge stamp is used  randomly, using Early Espresso Ink, the flower was adhered and then a sentiment from the Beautiful You Stamp Set was chosen. The colour of the bow was chosen to coordinate with the DSP.

So simple, but so stylish in Pool Party.

We moved on to the next design. The top layer was dived into three panels, sponged, stamped with Gorgeous Grunge again, then assembled same as the first. The ribbon was too wide for a bow but looked great just tied in a knot. Easy ey!

This one we did in So Saffron.

We finished off with Pink Pirouette. The DSP was cut down from the short side 4cm and thethe bottom up 4cm, the bottom 2 pieces were flipped for the look I was after. The four pieces were sponged, stamped with Gorgeous Grunge again, then assembled same as the first. The four pieces could be cut to accommodate a bigger sentiment if necessary, but I found the 4cm size fits many different sentiments. The Pink Pirouette bow finished the card nicely.

Lucky last is pretty cute.

So what do you recon, same, same but different works pretty well don't you think? Use up all those gorgeous papers you have been hoarding and quickly make up a stash of cards ready to go.
