Just One Stamp...Create Five Cards

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a great Monday so far!  
I've been having fun making cards to show you today!  
Today is my turn to do a tutorial for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog and
my challenge is to show you five cards made with just one stamp!!! 
I chose a beautiful scripture stamp from Our Daily Bread designs for my projects.  
Here is the first card, which is done with the Damask folder and die combo.  
I flipped one of the die cuts so that it would be a mirror image of the other.

First off, here are all the supplies that I used for these cards:

ODBd scripture stamp from the Happy Birthday set
Neenah, Co'Ordinations, and SU! cardstock
SU! and Basic Grey Designer papers
SU! ribbon, silver cord
Primas, charm, buttons and pearls
Bow Easy and Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sanding block
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders-
  Textiles, Damask, Leafy Branch, Swiss Dots, and Birds & Swirls, Ironworks Borders
Cuttlebug Dies-Corner Die, Damask Die, Ornamental Die

This particular scripture stamp can be used for so many occasions, especially when used with various Cuttlebug embossing folders and dies!  I will actually be using these for birthday cards!


I keep a piece of chipboard, which is cut the same size as the Cuttlebug folders and has an oval cut out of the center.  This is what I used to get the un-embossed area in the middle of my brown card.  Just put your card stock in the folder as usual and then make this sandwich: A plate, chipboard, embossing folder with paper inside, then your C plate.  Then just run it through your bug!  Depending on your machine, you may have to play around with the sandwich.  The bottom of that card is part of the frame on the Damask Frame die.  

The center card was the easy one of the bunch.  I just embossed with the Leafy Branch folder and sponged it to highlight the raised areas.  The gorgeous vintage corners are what gives this card that little extra punch!
For the soft green and vanilla card, I used the Birds and Swirls folder with Core'dinations cardstock and sanded the raised areas to show the inner core of the paper.  The tags are cut with the Onamental combo die and are attached with ribbon.  I just added tiny pearls here and there along with one tiny prima flower for an elegant look.

This last card is my favorite I think.  I love the vintage style and I think this captures that feel.  The Basic Grey designer paper is embossed with the Textile embossing folder and sponged.  Again, I used one side of the Damask Frame Die to create the bottom border and embossed another border from the Ornamental Iron border set.  I added ribbon and primas and an old button from my stash.

Thank you so much for joining me today for my first tutorial!  I hope that this will inspire you to see what you can do with just one stamp!!  Don't forget to add the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog blinkie to your blog and sign up to be a follower!  We love having you visit and we appreciate all of you!!
